BGTB – Week 4: What to Blog About

I’m a miserable little child and FORGOT TO DO WEEK 3 OF THIS WELL DONE!

In case you didn’t know, my amazing friend ateenagediaryonline is hosting something called Beginner’s Guide to Blogging and this time, it’s week 4, where we have to post about what we post about. CONVOLUTED? Err no, not really.

So I’ll put my own little spin on things, that isn’t really original. but shh I’m a complete and utter rebel so I do things my own way. Shut UP, ELM!

I don’t have a set theme for posting, except, well, life. You have beauty bloggers, book bloggers, fashion and travel and art bloggers, and then you have me. By that, I mean, I just blog about whatever the hell I like, WHEN I like, on whatever topic I like.

When you start a blog, you CAN pick a theme. You can blog about some good beauty products, or document your travels or write about politics or animals or ANYTHING you’re passionate about. Alternatively, you can just write about your life, which is what I do, mixed in with various other things like rants about music or people in general.

I’m a TERRIBLE example when it comes to posting about one set topic, so I just don’t. I don’t like the pressure; I just want this blog to be personal and about ME as a person, and maybe you too.

If you’re stuck for ideas, try some of these out, and put your OWN spin on it (like I didn’t do)

Christmas (if you celebrate it)
And if you don’t, what DO you celebrate? (For example, Eid or Hanukkah)
A random story from your life – it can be ANYTHING
Talk about a topic you have a passion for, like photography or writing or music, and maybe show us a bit of your work (that would be amazing)

Always remember: post what YOU want to post, not what anyone’s telling you to post. Don’t post because you feel pressured; post because you REALLY want to and you have that spark that gets you motivated.

Hope you liked this! What kind of stuff do you post about, and when you started blogging, did you have a set theme and have you kept to that?

  1. I started blogging about fashion, but I don’t think I have posted about that in over a year?!?! Now I post whatever comes to mind, so recipes, photos I took, or sometimes I just write about whatever comes to my mind.

  2. great post!! I blog about the things I do so if I bake a cake I will put the recipe on, or if it’s someone’s birthday I might post about gift ideas. Just whatever comes into my head.

  3. My blog is a book blog, but it doesn’t stop me from sharing my artwork, writing, weird life stories, interesting events that are happening, thoughts on completely random things and anything else that happens to pop into my mind!

  4. Back in my first ever blog (many centuries ago) I used to post solely about anime related stuff. Then I felt constricted at one point and stopped. Here in my current blog, I decided, “Screw looking for one specific niche. Imma write what I want.”

  5. * pack bags to join your rebel team *
    I will see you soon in rebel camp , so we can share all the way we’re amazing because we don’t follow any type of rules instead go with the flow. Also I will bring some tea so we can sip on it and look sophisticated .
    * rumaging trough kitchen drawers to find tea bags *

  6. Hah! Elm I can totally relate with you on not having a specific topic. But the only difference is that you’re a hell lot better than me!!
