Event Blogging Template 101
So people ask me, I've taught people on how to classify their blogs and even on how to write about attending an event but what about how to even start blogging? How do we even create a blog or find content? Shouldn't that be question one? Since OMYSBA2013 is just round the corner, let me give you guys some tips on how to be a blogger! (Just sharing some humble tips.)
1. Think of a catchy name.
Something related to yourself, related to something you wish to blog about or like me, just about yourself and your name. Like my own blog, it's obviously about me. I am a narcissi or like one of my favorite food blogs - Cook.Snap.Eat.Love : Everything is written there and it's very direct branding too.
But you never know what works and what doesn't these days, there are blogs that has name that confuses people on even simple thing like their gender but, oh well. :p #Troll.
2. Think of a nice catchy tagline.
Anything that can bring your blog-titude (Blog attitude) out. I had quite a few over the years. "Be Part of The Fun." "I'm Awesome and I Know it." "You Know I am Better than you." "Where awesomeness happens." So what blog-titude am I showing? Simply showing my own attitude and randomness. LOL
3. Think of what you want to blog about.
Not too sure about what you can blog about? Food, Tech, "Lifestyle", Beauty, Events, Sex. Just write whatever you like really. It is your virtual space. Check out my dummy guide above for more help!
I guess this is where many people get stucked. What to blog about? How do I get content? Let me go deeper into this.
3A. Just treat it like you are telling me something interesting.
Anything, I am sure there are time of the day that you talk to yourself, you have an interesting idea, just like how I came out with this blog post. When you have an interesting idea, write the title down, do some research or develop it a little more. Do not be afraid to have incomplete blogpost in the draft box, I have tons of those, and do not worry about bad blog post. Take it as you are missing some practice baskets, you will score one and the one that counts is the important one.
3B. Share something interesting online and finish it with your own comment and opinion.
That is one of my favorite type of articles. News, videos, gutter pictures. Nuff said.
3C. Nothing interesting to share? Nothing found online? Tell me about your day.
Like how blogging 1st started, today, I had this food, I had that food, I argue with my boyfriend... blah blah.. Your real reader will still read it. ;P
3D. Nothing real? What about something frictional? Tell me your dream or your day dream?
So that day, I was walking on the street and boom, I saw Anne Hathaway and BOOM, Tony Stark flew in and snatched her away from me. #TrueStory.
3E. All else fail?
Take a picture of yourself and post it up. #OOTD everyday!
Mr.Smith, yes, I am writing a silly troll post again if you are wondering.
