Blog Tips: 5 things no one will tell you about blogging

blogging-tips-what-you-didnt-know-about-blogging
Modno blogovanje je relativno mlada, nova i još uvek mnogima nepoznata profesija. Čak i ja koja se blogovanjem bavim sada već 4 godine svakodnevno učim i otkrivam nove stvari. Ovaj blog je od mog srednjoškolskog hobija prerastao u posao koji zahteva ozbiljno radno vreme i posvećenost, zahvaljujući kom sam ja jako puno sazrela, naucila mnogo korisnih stvari i upoznala zanimljive ljude. Kroz ceo taj proces sam naučila neopisivo mnogo počevši od tehničkih stvari, marketinga, do onih najsitnijih detalja koji jedan blog izdvajaju od ostalih. I odlučila sam da sada sve to podelim sa vama. Stoga ću počevši od ovog posta kroz seriju postova pričati sa vama o blogovanju. Danas vam otkrivam nekoliko činjenica o blogovanju koje vam niko neće reći, odnosno koje verovatno ne znate osim ako se time ozbiljnije ne bavite. Nadam se da će vam ovi postovi biti zanimljivi i korisni. Pišite mi svoje utiske i ukoliko imate predloge tema na koje bih mogla da pišem ili pitanja ostavite i to u komentaru.

Fashion blogging is a relatively young and still unknown profession. Even I am learning every day and discovering new things. This blog grew from my high school hobby into a business that requires a serious commitment of time and work, thanks to which I have matured, learned a lot of useful things and meet interesting people. Throughout this process I learned incredibly much starting from technical things, marketing to those details that make one blog stand out from the rest. And I decided to share all that with you. Starting from this post through a series of posts I will chat with you about blogging. Today I will reveal a few facts about blogging that no one will say to you and that you probably don't know unless you are serious about blogging. I hope you find these posts interesting and useful. Write me your impressions and if you have any question leave it in a comment.

1. Blogovanje zahteva mnogo vremena Samo jedan kvalitetan blogpost zahteva minimum 3-4 sata rada, a pored toga blogovanje podrazumeva i stalno aktivne društvene mreže, prepisku oko saradnje sa brendovima, istraživanje, učenje itd. Kad se sve to skupi, ja provedem negde oko 6-8 sati dnevno baveći se blogom i ponekad i to ne bude dovoljno, a kada u nečemu zaista uživate onda vreme brzo prolazi i imate utisak kao da to što je urađeno nije dovoljno.

1. Blogging requires a lot of time Only one quality blogpost requires a minimum of 3-4 hours of work, and besides that blogging involves constantly active social networks, correspondence concerning cooperation with brands, internet research, studying etc. I spend around 6-8 hours a day working on my blog and sometimes that is not enough, and when you really enjoy something then time passes quickly and you have the impression that what is done is not enough.

2. Napredak je težak i spor Na tržištu postoji veliki broj blogova, sve je još uvek novo i nepoznato i ne postoji tajna formula za uspeh kao kod nekih drugih zanimanja. Potrebno je investirati dosta vremena i truda i rezultati neće izostati, ali je taj proces jako spor što ponekad previše iscrpljuje i obeshrabruje pa ljudi odustanu već na početku.

2. Progress is difficult and slow The market is full of a large number of blogs, it is still new and unknown and there is no secret formula for success. It is necessary to invest a lot of time and effort and the results will come eventually, but the process is very slow and sometimes too exhausting and discouraging, so people give up at the beginning.

3. Sve radite sami Ako vodite modni blog, onda to znači da ste osim modnog blogera i stilista, frizer, šminker, fotograf, računovođa, PR, pisac, IT stručnjak, lektor i još svašta nešto, što svakako nije lako.

3. You do everything by yourself If you run a fashion blog, then it means that besides being a fashion blogger you're also a stylist, hairdresser, makeup artist, photographer, accountant, PR, writer, IT expert, lecturer and a lot more, which certainly is not easy.

4. Teško je ostati svoj Kada sami sebe predstavljate svetu putem interneta ostavljate ogromnu mogućnost ljudima da komentarišu i pišu svoje mišljenje, koje nekad i nije lepo. Teško je podneti te komentare, naročito kada ne znate od koga oni dolaze, i ne dozvoliti takvim komentarima da vas povrede i promene.

4. It is difficult to stay true to yourself  When introducing ourselves to the world via Internet we leave a huge opportunity for people to comment and write their opinion, which sometimes isn't pretty. It is difficult to read those comments and not allow such comments to harm you and change your personality.

5. Ne stvarate sadržaj samo za sebe Iako modni blog predstavlja mesto koje je odraz vašeg stila, kada počnete ozbiljnije da se bavite time i steknete čitaoce morate razmišljati i o tome da oni čitaju vaše postove, da vam veruju i da ih zanima vaše mišljenje o određenoj temi. Morate razmišljati o tome da bi vaši postovi trebalo da imaju vrednost za čitaoce i da budu korisni i zanimljivi, a opet u okvirima onoga što je prvenstveno vaše interesovanje.

5. You are not creating content for yourself only Even though fashion blog is a place that is a reflection of your personal style when you start blogging more seriously and gain readers you have to think about the fact that they read your posts, that they believe you and that they are interested in your opinion on a particular subject. You have to think about bringing a certain value to your readers through blog posts and make them useful and interesting for them to read.

Ovim postom nisam želela da predstavim blogovanje kao nešto nezamislivo teško niti da bilo koga odvratim od ideje da pokrene svoj blog, već naprotiv da svima vama približim kako to zaista izgleda biti bloger. Sledeći ovakav post očekujte već naredne nedelje.

Through this post I didn't want to introduce blogging as something extremely difficult nor turn somebody away from the idea to start their own blog, but rather to explain what it really means to be fashion blogger and how it actually looks like in reality. If you like this post be sure to come next week for a brand new blog tips post.

  3. Odlican post i, zaista, sve sto si rekla je tacno. Mnogi (konzervativni) ljudi ne dozivljavaju blogovanje kao posao od kog moze da se zivi, a jos manje kao nesto sto iziskuje dosta ulaganja i odricanja. Ovim postom si sve to odlicno prikazala. Uzivala sam citajuci. :)

  5. Svaki posao,pa i blog,koji je kao sto kazes vrsta posla,zahteva puno truda. Zato i ne volim blogove koji ne ispunjavaju sve ove navedene stavke. Na kraju,trud se isplati i to se vidi u broju pregleda i pratilaca na svim mrezama. Kvalitet je svakako ono sto opstaje. Divna si,samo tako nastavi 😊
