And too write about..... what to blog about?

//Let’s talk about...//

Let’s create a list of ideas for you to blog about!

This is the last day of our blogging how-to and I hope you have found the content useful and a start to your blogging voice ♥

Today we are going to create a list of content for you to blog. But before we go into the list I just wish to remind you of a few things...

~ Remember your coffee date...also known as your ideal client? Imagine yourself sat with her as you are blogging. What questions would she ask you? What is going on with her? Write as you would if you were talking to her.

~ Your words do matter! It does not matter if the topic has been covered before...think to a past version of yourself. What would the new photographer in you have wanted to know which you know now? What would you as a new parent wished you had known that you do now? What advice could you give your past self? Because someone out there will be feeling just the same way you did...

~ Write and journal every day if possible....this alone will create authentic original content

~ Do the exercise to remove any writing blocks you may have....this is a seriously immense thing for you to do, and it works believe me...

~ Give information. Make 80% of your blog posts about the other person and 20% about your weddings/photoshoots/editing in your PJs

~ What is YOUR purpose? Why are you a photographer? Why do you photograph what you do?

So for example, I photograph women because I know how it feels to not know who you are…I know how it feels to have cripplingly low self-confidence. I know how it feels to see a beautiful photograph of myself, to accept the person I am. I know the power of a portrait and I want every woman I meet to feel that too….I wish to help her get to that place.

Know your purpose and have that as the bases of each post you write…

With that in mind....I am going to start a list for your inspiration. I do not know what your purpose is, so find it and write about it always...

Feel free to print this out and carry on with your list....the list is infinite believe me ♥
