Be Consistent

You’ve probably already heard this before, but I’m going to give you my experience as an example.

I used to post 3 days a week when I felt like it, my traffic per day that I posted was maybe 10, if I was lucky. My monthly views were a bit pathetic, and I had around 200 followers when I decided to go on hiatus.

When I returned from my hiatus I decided I was going to post 6 days a week, and only deviate from that plan for holidays or if I needed a mental health day. My daily views on average are between 50-60 and I have over 2,000 followers. I’ve only been back from hiatus since the middle of March, when quarantine started. I’ve also earned a small amount of money through my blog.

Seriously, BE CONSISTENT. It pays off.

Be Yourself

To gain a following you have to be unique or likable in some way. What’s a better way to be unique than being yourself. There’s are billions of people on this planet, but there’s only one you. The best way to stand out is to speak from your heart, and to just say it how you would say it. You don’t have to be perfect. Throw in thirty emojis 🥰👌🏼👍🏼📚❤️🙋🏼‍♀️😭🥳🤣🐶😊 or a crazy gif

Do whatever it is that makes you happy, and just celebrate being unique.

Don’t Sacrifice Your Mental Health

I mentioned above that I’ll miss a posting day if my mental health needs it, and I’m serious. If you sit down to write a post and nothing is coming out and you’re getting stressed out, just take a day off. Your followers won’t abandon you, and I can assure you that they’ll understand. I often find it hard to come up with six days of content, like today, I’m sitting in bed writing this after I randomly had the idea to spread what advice has meant the most to me. Before I had that idea I was sitting here contemplating whether I’d be able to come up with any content or not. It’s okay to need a day, you’re only human, we’re all only human. At least I think 😂

Alright everyone, I hope you have a great day, and I hope you find this advice helpful.
