After our Photo Night Live Skype interview a couple of weeks ago, photographer Ali Lovegrove spoke to me and said she still had loads of blogging questions that she’d like to ask me, so wondered if we could meet.
I’ve been meaning to do some more video blogs but finding the time to do so has been pretty difficult at the moment but Ali’s idea seemed like the perfect new mini-series for the blog.
Over the next 4 weeks, I’ll be sharing the 4 videos that we filmed, all covering different aspects of blogging. I hope you find some of my tips useful. We were both pretty nervous, I was sick (brilliant!), my hair looks…erm…windswept… and we had to rush a little bit due to unhelpful staff at the bar we were in. Self-deprecation over, I hope the content will be useful for all you budding bloggers and the whole (slightly traumatic) experience will have been worthwhile in the end.
Big thanks to Richard of FX Films for filming this for us.
In this first video we discuss:
♥ How to start your blog – the set up basics
♥ Finding your voice online & knowing what to write about
♥ Thinking about the ‘look’ of your blog and branding
♥ What information to include on your blog and how to write your About Me page
Be sure to come back next Wednesday for Part 2 – ‘The First Few Months of Your Blog’.
