I’ve almost been blogging for a year now and I feel like I’m really starting to find my way with my own style. Blogging is a really tricky thing, there are so many wonderful blogs out there, that it’s actually quite difficult to just do your own thing. A lot of blogs are very simple; plain white with a black logo… and I think these blogs look fab, but it’s not very me. I often feel like my blog logo looks odd compared to others but at the same time, I love it because it’s mine, it’s unique and it represents me really well. I like colour, but not too much colour and I think my logo represents this well.
I think photography is a big one when it comes to finding your style within the blogging world. A lot of bloggers opt for perfect flat lays… Again, these look awesome, but it’s not very me. I feel like over the last few months I’ve really started to find my style with photography and I’m pleased with how my photos are turning out. Below are some examples of my photography, I think I’m really starting to build a theme and I love how the style looks.
When I look back at some of my older photos when I first started out I actually cringe slightly haha. They’re so bad! I had no idea what I was doing and would just quickly snap a photo and ‘it would do’. Now I have a box of blog props and lots of patterned paper that I use to try and keep some consistency with my style. I actually wrote a post on affordable blog photo props that you may also find interesting.
There are a lot of blogs out there. Travel blogs, beauty blogs, lifestyle blogs, food blogs … you name it and it probably exists. There’s always a debate about whether your blog should stick to just one niche. I personally don’t as I like to write about things that interest me and that’s a lot of things. I personally feel that some of the most popular blogs to read are beauty related but personally, I have no interest in writing content like that. I’m not big on trying new makeup and skin care. I have certain products that I love and I’ve used for years and I never really change much. For me having a beauty blog just wouldn’t work. If I had to describe my blog I would call it a creative lifestyle blog with a lot of Disney on the side! I honestly just write about things that I’m passionate about and that interests me. Maybe it’s not all interesting to other people, but I enjoy it and that’s all that really matters.
Do you have any tips for finding your blogging style?
