It’s almost been a month you didn’t see my posts. I had to take a blogging break.
It happens to all of us that sometimes an important project/situation turns up and we have to concentrate on that for a while. A little compromise with our blog becomes necessary during that time.
Every blogger knows the drawback of leaving a blog unattended for a certain period. That’s why many bloggers call out for Guest posts when they plan to take a break. I did not feel like doing so, because I had nothing to promise them in return. So all what I did during these days were, read my fellow bloggers and search for new ideas and techniques for my future posts.
I learned many things during my blogging break that can add value to my blog. Thought of sharing some of them with you guys.
1. Why breaks are important?
Blogging breaks work similar to power naps. It boosts our productivity. But make sure that the nap doesn’t transform to a deep sleep.
2. Does Blog theme really matter?
I have been observing one of my favourite blog for so many days. After a detailed theme tour, I found an almost similar theme like her’s.
So yes, work on themes. It does matter. A good-looking blog impress people, especially those outside the blogosphere. Set a good theme that suits your niche. I feel Magazine themes are great for multiple niche blogs. What do you think?
3. Is it time for a break up with Google pictures?
I have used a lot of pictures from Google for my featured images and in my stories. When I learned about the copyright issues, I started using PowerPoint to create images.
I never knew there were apps to create images for blog posts as well as Social media posts. Most bloggers prefer using apps like Canva and Pixabay. Canva looks cool to me. If you have not tried yet, do give it a try. It is awesome. Also let me know in the comments section how do you create images for your posts.
4. What to expect when you promote your blog posts on Social media?
Social medias are flooding with blog posts and videos every now and then. So better expect nothing big to happen when you post something there. Just like you are not interested in every other thing your friends do, expect same kind of treatment.
Intention behind posting on social medias is like picking a lottery ticket and waiting for the draw date. If you are lucky, you win.
Recently a friend of mine asked me to write something for their school magazine. I really felt honoured 🙏. Thanks to facebook.
5. Continue with blogging?
Breaks help to decide whether to continue with blogging or not. No special efforts are required to be put from your side in this matter. You will come to know your interest level within few days.
Do share your views and knowledge about simple yet important things in blogging.
See you soon ☺🙏
