Sunday’s #bbloggersoz topic was – How to keep content fresh? Unfortunately, I was not able to participate as I have Scottish visitors over and we were doing touristy stuff.  But Celeste said that everyone had a ball!  YAY!  And she kindly summarised it all for us.

So what did our beauty bloggers have to say on this topic?

Keep any unfinished posts in your drafts. You might find inspiration to finish them/improve them later on.

A lot of my blog inspirations come from celebrities, especially with my FOTDs/makeup looks.

Sometimes it worth to have a quiz / poll on your blog. Let your readers to tell you what they want you to post about.

I think a big part of producing good content is to never assume that you’re too good/good enough.

I also get a lot of inspiration from the fashion world .. “colour blocking” and “lady like” fashion also inspire makeup looks.

Write about what you love, love what you write about 😉

Trend reporting takes dedication. If you don’t love it yourself, your writing will show that. Stick to writing about what you love.

I think it’s always good to have a sense of humour about yourself and blogging. Eg. my love of DUCKFACE.

Personal stories are a big turn-on for me when I read blogs. Don’t just tell me something is pretty, I want to know more!

I’m new to the scene but I just think of what I would like to read in other blogs when I put up a post.

Treat EVERYTHING like a beauty story… smudged your mascara? How to clean a smudged mascara is a story!

Read. A lot. Read magazines, webzines, books, blogs, etc on beauty, fashion, etc. You’ll find lots of inspiration there.

I browse the aisles of Priceline and try and find new things that I might want to try that won’t break the budget.

Find your unique voice and don’t be scared to use it.

I also read a lot of magazines and spend as much time as I can discussing content with others to bounce ideas off each other

Wow!  Amazing advice!!!  Learning never stops – it is an eternal journey and hallelujah for that!

Stay tuned for the new #bbloggersoz topic to be revealed on Thursday – it’s gonna be a good one!

    These are all great tips! I think another thing is to start new series on your blog like certain makeup looks or swatches etc 🙂

    These are great tips, thanks so much for sharing. My favorite is:

    “Personal stories are a big turn-on for me when I read blogs. Don’t just tell me something is pretty, I want to know more!”

    ITA with that. It’s what makes a blogger more interesting and relateable.
