Things you should do as a Blogger but don’t

Desk with laptop, pencils, iphone and books

I definitely fall into the camp of being a ‘lazy’ blogger at times. Especially working in Marketing there are some things I don’t do or haven’t done properly that I know I┬ádefinitely should do. ┬áLet me know how many you agree with in the comments below.

Not using a self-hosting platform
I am currently using Blogger as you know I should move over to self-hosting but I am so meh about it. I know the benefits its just it seems like a enormous task I don’t really want to take on by myself right now.

Using stock images way too much
I know you should ideally take your own images but I do feel like a bit of an idiot doing it for my own blog – I don’t know why. I don’t have the jazzy motivational note pads just the standard stationary ones haha!

Not using Photoshop
This is more on the principle that I cannot really spend the money on Photoshop at the minute so I am using the free version of PicMonkey – which to be fair is pretty good.

Not having a consistent layout
I am pretty consistent with image first but titles – do I go with all capital letters or not, should I have the title within the image or just have the image bare… the list is endless!

Not consistently posting
As much as I hate to admit it – I suck at posting often. I do feel that when I post my content is of value but it isn’t as often as I would like it to be. Its mainly time management and it is something I am working towards improving. This also affects my social media following as I tend to get more followers as I post my posts.

Not updating my own profile image
The one of me in my hoody – yeah that was taken when I was at Uni (and first year at that!) I have left Uni fours year ago now and have had that on my list to update but I can never find the right light/time…

BUT there is something I am good at I reckon and that is posting evergreen content. The majority of my content is evergreen (i.e. it stays relevant) long after it has been posted.
