Hello, beautiful people!

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for Blogging 101! If you haven’t tuned into this ‘lil series of blogging tips before, or you just want to refresh your memory, let me get you up to speed. So far we have:

And today I’m bringing you:

15 Things You Can Do To Make Your Blog The Best It Can Be. 

15 ways to improve your blog

Because sometimes you just get stuck in a rut, or you find something that works and you decide “that’s good enough; I’m going to stop here” – especially after the whole  “I have a new blog, yay!” honeymoon period wears off. Which is fine, but if you’re not growing as a blogger, how can you expect your blog to grow?

Deep.

So, to help you flourish like the beautiful orchids on my windowsill, I happily bring to you a few things you can do to spruce up your blog.

  1. Make a post directory page. (Basically, a page that lists all your posts.)
  2. Revisit and fix your old posts.
  3. And share the hell out of them. Promote your content!
  4. Sort out all your tags and categories for easier navigation.
  5. A collaboration post.
  6. A guest post. A guest post is very much different to a collaboration post – a collab is where you work with another person on a post or series, whereas a guest post is where you just allow someone a post on your blog.
  7. Rework your about page – and, if you don’t have one, create one!
  8. Add a “Contact Me” page so people that want you can have you – whether that’s brands, other bloggers or just people that want to throw suggestions at you
  9. And, as far as suggestions go, include a survey once in a while to ask your readers what’s working and what’s not. Feedback!
  10. Link back to old posts. I need to start doing this, but all your old content doesn’t need to just be wasted (even if it is absolutely cringe to look back on).
  11. Show off your best content. Flaunt your most commented on, most liked or just your general favourite content through widgets, sidebars, pinned posts.
  12. Make your blog beautiful! Fix up that blog theme, edit yourself some pretty graphics and you’re good to go!
  13. Plan in advance. Blog planners are possibly the most useful thing in existence. You know what you’re posting when, you never lose those random ideas you get and when it’s all written up in front of you it’s a lot easier to just do. Let’s not forget – drafts are the key to life.

  14. Gain inspiration from other bloggers. I’m thinking of creating a “Blogs I Love” page and linking to some of my favourite bloggers, so that the people that follow me can see where my inspirations come from!
  15.  Take better original images. Yep, one day I’ll say this enough that it will sink in to my head.

Well, there we have it! 15 easy improvements that you can implement to make your blog perfect. There are loads more things you can do that I . . . well, to be honest, I just forgot. If anyone has any suggestions, just drop me a comment!

Yeah, I know you thought it was over – but it’s not. Before you abandon me in this cold, dark world, be a babe and comment about what I should post for Blogging 101 next. I’m thinking either something about blog design, SEO or “The Science Of Popular Blog Posts” – but if you have any requests, feel free to let me know.

These are some great tips and I really like the idea of a ‘Blogs I Love’ page!!!

hehe, because you know you would be on it! but thank you 😀

That’s so sweet…thank you…if I ever had a page like this, you’d be on it too! Your welcome💙

They were great tips! I was seriously considering about stopping my blog because I felt I was getting nowhere with it but now I’m going to try follow your tips and hopefully stick at it! Thank you❤❤

definitely dont stop blogging, your blog is great! it just takes patience…although i feel you on feeling like you’re getting nowhere 🙁 i hope this helps! ❤❤

Thanks! Yeah this is a great help. I really appreciate it, I need all the help I can get :)❤

Same here on feeling like this is going nowhere, but don’t stop!! That’s one of the biggest keys to blogging success!

Preach to that🙋

Ahh the fixing part! Literally I was just stalking my own blogs the other day and whilst going through them I was like “did I actually write that?!?” Hahah
Great post as always!

Such great tips- thanks for sharing! X

thanks so much, i hope they help x

Awesome tips! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

thank you so much!

Love this post

aww thank you!

You’re welcome

Cool tips! Hmm, for the next maybe something on design?

thank you! im thinking of changing/finishing my blog design so that would actually be a good post to do – thanks for the suggestion 😀

Cool! I look forward to it! Both the post and your new blog design!

Ugh, I pretty much live for these posts. One day I might get my act together and DO some of these extremely worthwhile things, but for now I’m good just imagining how fabulous my blog would be if I did. I think I need a rainy day to just go through them all and get my blog-game up. Also – yes please to a blogs I love page. X

Why thank you – I mean your blog is very much fabulous as is, the world just might not be able to contain it if you were to do all these things🌍🌍 I’m definitely gonna do that next time I have the time…. watch your notification for “Okaaythen linked back to your blog”😂x

Love the tips! Thank you for sharing x

Awww thank you x

I love these tips!

Thank you; I hope they help!

Well said advice!

Aw thank you!

Great tips! Ugh… You just reminded me of all the things my blog is missing lol… I seriously need to make sure I keep m,y tags organized cuz it’s getting pretty crowded. I try to create content with similar tags and try to stick with those few at least until I decide to branch out a bit more.

Soooo… For a future blogging 101 post I was thinking tips about choosing a theme that goes with your blog niche (if bloggers have a specific niche, but they may be pretty random like me which makes it harder). I wanted to write a post about that but honestly I’m way too lazy to do it!

Thanks gurl! Same here – everytime I write these I sit there like….it’s worse because I know both how to improve and that I’m not doing it😭😭
That’s a really good idea! Thanks x

Lol! Yeah I totally understand. I worry people will realize I’m not following my own advice and will come off as a hypocrite so I try to do whatever the tip was that I gave lol

These are really awesome tips!! ☺

Omg thank you

No problem! 😀

[…] look at these (which is totally understandable) I actually photographed them in the desk flatlay in this post, so feel free to take a […]

Love this post! And for blogging 101 ideas, maybe something about blog design especially when you’re stuck with the WordPress free themes??

aw thank you! that is exactly why i was thinking of doing a theme design post because wordpress’s free ones are pretty terrible hehe, thanks for the suggestion…its a good post idea!

Very helpful tips , I’ve just started my blog and since I’m clueless when it comes to techie stuff here’s my question : how to go about tagging other bloggers into ur posts do you have a blog dealing with the gadgety stuff like widgets and what not?
Thanks 😘

thank you! hehe im pretty bad with all the technical stuff as well, luckily wordpess takes care of most of it. to tag other bloggers I just type their name then hyperlink their blog address 🙂 they’ll recieve a notification if you do that as well. and not at the moment, but i’d be happy to answer any questions 🙂

Thanks girl ! 💞
