7 Tips for starting bloggers


Hello everybody, this is not the sort of post I usually do but today I wanted to share these tips for starting bloggers. I’ve been bogging for almost a year now and I gained quite some experience. These are things I wish I would have known when I started and I hope I can help some people.

1.List of Ideas

A really great tip is to have some sort of journal to write your blogging ideas in. When I started blogging I’d often have great ideas but I’d forget them before I could make a post. So whenever you have an idea, write it down and if you haven’t got any inspiration for a new post you can just look in the journal and get loads of new ideas!

2. Tags

Tags exist. Yeah I didn’t realise that for my first 3 or 4 months of blogging. And I wondered why nobody was reading my posts… Tags allow people to find your posts, so add a few appropiate tags to each post. Don’t add more than 15 tas though, because that decreases your chance of appearing in somebody’s Discover Page.

3. Tags and Awards

This is a different kind of tag. Participating in tags and awards is just a lot of fun and by nominating others you will get nominated yourself more and more and you can build up friends in the blogging community, which is really important if you’re just starting out. At the beginning, nobody might nominate you but you can always ask to be nominated and a lot of bloggers also say: ‘I nominate anybody who wants to do it’, so you can just take that as an opportunity to do the tag/award.

4. Back-up posts

If you want to stay on a blogging schedule or goal (for example. I want to post 2 posts a week) having 1 or 2 back-up posts is really convenient. Sometimes you will find yourself simply not having enough time to write a post and you can just post one of your back-ups and stay on schedule

5. E-mail

Create a special e-mail address for your blog (mine is littlediyproject@gmail.com) and put in on your About page. If people want to ask me something, do a collab or just want to chat about something blog-relaed they can always just email me!

6. Don’t only post

A big mistake I made when I just started is that I just only posted and expected people to visit my blog out of nothing. That’s not how it works. As I said before, being a part of the community is really important. So find similar blogs you like, read their posts, comment nice things, follow other blogs and you’ll see that a lot more people will start visiting your blog too.

7.Choose the right theme

This again is very important. When I started I had a theme where only my newest post was actually visible and easy-to-visit. This resulted in people only seeing and visiting my newest posts. Now I have a theme where on my homepage a dozen of posts are shown and people can find and visit my different posts really easily, which really increased my views a lot.

I really hope these tips are helpful. The reason I’m sharing them now is that I decided to stop blogging for a while. Blogging was always a hobby for me but the last month(s) have been really busy and I started to feel really pressured to make nice posts every week so I decided to take a break until I get more time. I’m not sure for how long this will be, but I hope you’ll understand. ❤️

Hello everybody!!! I’m so excited! Yesterday we officially reached 100 followers on this blog! My first milestone!

I want to thank you all so much for supporting me, I (obviously) couldn’t have reached this without you!

I started this blog in January and since then I have gained a great love for blogging. I hope that one day I’ll be able to make much more people happy with posts.

My new goal is in to have 1000 followers in one year from now, so on 6 September 2018,  I have no idea if it’s realistic, but I’m at least going to try. 🙂

I will keep posting at least once a week and maybe more.

I’m so happy, thank you all so much!!!

Reflecting on half a year of blogging + ANNOUNCEMENT

Hello everybody!

I can’t believe it’s been half a year since I started this blog. It’s been such an awesome experience!

I had been wanting to start blogging for a while and the new year was just a great opportunity to start. Sometimes I considered stopping, but I’m really happy I didn’t do that😊

It all started with this post about a necklace I made on the 6th of January:


DIY Necklace from shells

Reading it back the post wasn’t really good. The tutorial isn’t easy to follow, the images are weird sizes and I didn’t different fonts or anything. Well, at least I’ve progressed.😂

I’ve made 21 posts until now, most of which I’m proud of (most…).


I decided to list a few of them which I like the most here. If you haven’t seen them yet, I think you should definitely check them out.

  1. DIY cute button earrings

I think they’re just really cute and they’re incredibly easy to make.


2. DIY Walnut lip balm


I’m really proud of this as it was my original idea and I really like how it turned out. 🙂


3. 3 DIY Summer Bracelets


I think these look so cute for the summer and I still wear them sometimes!


4. DIY Wall decor


I just think these are so cute on my wall. They’re just so a colourful and bright and look really cool together.


5. DIY Pendant Necklace


What I love about this necklace is that it’s so customisable and you can use any image you like.


6. DIY easy foam pouch


Because it’s so easy, yet so cute.


So yeah, those are some of my favourite posts, so check them out if you like 😊

I’ve enjoyed blogging so much the past half year and I will definitely keep doing this. 🙂 I want to thank everyone who has supported me, it really means a lot to me❤️


Now, for the announcement…..

To celebrate this half year anniversary I decided that starting on the first of August on I’ll be posting twice a week!

Don’t worry, I will still have my regular DIY on Sunday but every Wednesday I’ll be posting something else… this could be anything, and I already have loads of ideas. Think of art journalling, maybe drawings, tip’s and hacks, that sort of things. I’ll be doing this for at least a month, and if I like it I’ll maybe keep doing it longer. 🙂

Why start in August you think? Well, that’s because I’m going on a holiday on the 16th of July and I won’t be back until the 30th. In that time I will try to post once a week, but I definitely won’t be able to post twice a week, so I decided to start with that once I come back.

I’m really excited for this, and I’m interested what kind of effect it will have on my views etcetera. Well, that’s all I have to say! I hope you will like my additional Wednesday posts.

Thank you for reading!
