I got an email about blogging and thought all of you might enjoy my input.
I hope you are doing well this mid-semester break. I am a student of class of xxxx. I came for the branding session and I was quite intrigued and re-inspired to begin blogging again. However, due to a heavy study load and lack of motivation, I have not been able to continue. I also feel my blog is not bringing out the voice I want to be heard by the world as much. I hope you don’t mind if I request you guide me through the blogging process. Thank you very much.
good to have a fellow blogger at Ashesi!
Your blog is all set up, looks cute, and you touch on some interesting topics under teen life, being an African woman etc.
However, to write more regularly, I think you need a little bit of structure. What has worked for me and many other bloggers is to first make a content plan and then follow up – see some tips here:
This is a guest contribution from ProBlogger Expert Nicole Avery. Creating a blog content plan is one of the best things you can do to ensure your blog has quality content that is created efficiently with the time you have available.
For instance, I have created Sunday Reads (which I usually write on Fridays and schedule them) as well as one post every semester about classes I teach – the most recent one was about my favorite assignment.
You can do similar – think up a structure for very low key posts…perhaps planning your week (super interesting for people outside Ashesi to see what a regular week can be like for an Ashesi student) or write a monthly update about a topic you care for and people will be coming to you as an authority.
You can also think of topics or categories: for instance: Life observations, beauty, Ghanaian politics, Career Women, Technology news, yes what ever! and I can help set them up for you and those categories can also help to guide and inspire your writing.
I read a lot of blogs and like Ghanaian blogs Circumspecte
and by Naa Oyoo
– maybe their writing can bring you more inspiration?
Thanks for reaching out, let me know how it goes, and enjoy the break!
