How I grew my blog|| Monday Confessions

Untitled

Since I started blogging, I always wondered what is it that I can do to make my blog better in order to satisfy my readers. When I finally started growing my blog things I never though of came with it, I started getting business offers and the rest you know. Since it became my job, I also started getting many questions from other bloggers on how to grow your blog to a level of becoming more successful and recognisable.

I am not an expert on the topic, but after more than 4 years of blogging I have a lot of experience and now know what it takes to make a blog interesting.


There are over 155 million blogs in the world, the number is so scary and seems that nowadays almost every modern world person writes a blog, so how can you make yours extra special, or apealing and make your readers want more? In all honesty, there isn’t a rule, but there are certainly few tricks and tips I can suggest in order to have a steady grow.

First thing is consistency. The importance of blogging regularly is just immense and its something I wish I knew from the beginning. Of course that you want to focus on quality rather than quantity, but make sure to have some sort of schedule, something that will make your followers know when to come back. For the first year of blogging I only blogged when I felt like it, twice a month, or every other day, anomy readers just couldnt be bothered to visit Glam&Glitter regularly as they didn’t know what to expect. From the moment I announced that there will be a post every other day I noticed an incredible growth. Now that I blog every day my readers visit Glam&Glitter even more frequently.

Social Media updates are also extremely important. I know this is nothing new, but ask yourself how did you find most of the blogs you follow? Was it instagram, bloglovin or something else? Then focus on building a community there. I get a lot of comments from my lovely followers saying that they found my outfits/blog on instagram and now follow it every day. I would never go through a day now without posting on instagram, because I know what an impact it has on my page views.

If you are only starting your blog, and yet need to build an audience, I suggest besides blogging regularly, to devote some time and make friends in this industry. Find your favourite blogs, and make sure to show interest. Most annoying thing for other bloggers is spamming their blogs, instagram accounts and Facebook pages with a link and words “Follow me”. We spend a lot of time creating content, and its pretty frustrating when someone sees that content only as advertorial place. Leave a meaningful comment, and then feel free to leave a link to your page, which not only will make the host more fond of you and reciprocate, but you will get more views from the other readers if your comment is interesting and clever.

There is a sea of bloggers posting their outfits, most of us own same pieces, so don’t be scared to be different. My big bonus is that my personal style is pretty girly, feminine and colourful, which is rare at this time. Most popular bloggers are pretty edgy and love monochrome dressing, but that never made me change my style or be scared of being myself.

I already mentioned quality, and yes I know it can be pretty hard if you are only starting your blog and have another job. But try to make a good schedule for yourself, so that your photography is pretty decent. Bright and sharp photos done with day light are really what people love, and brands too. If you are trying to show that sweater in a dark room, colours won’t portray properly and brands wouldn’t want to work with you. Its all about inspiring people and showing then what they could get, how to wear certain pieces and giving them a reason to come back.

Saying that, you might think that unlimited wardrobe or makeup collection is another thing you need to be a blogger, and that is very far from truth. I constantly give away my clothes to friends, cousins and charity, and even though I know I have a lot, it wasn’t like that since the beginning. If you see my first posts, I had two-three bags that I was wearing all the time, and knew how to combine stuff differently every time. Having basic pieces in your wardrobe also helps, but if everything fails you can also borrow pieces from your friends, siblings, parents. I personally never really liked the concept of borrowing anything that isn’t from my home, because I think the whole point is to show your readers how you wear what you already have.

With al of those tips, don’t forget to have a story line, a bit of personality, so that your readers know WHO they follow. My blog really started growing when I first talked about my studies abroad, about the career path, about challenges in changing a country at the age of 18 and so on. Make sure to have a personal touch to everything you do and you will never be lost in the sea of bloggers. This is a great industry, and as creative individuals we can make it even better by inspiring people around the world, making them want to be better and striving for the maximum. I hope this inspired you to work on your blog in 2015 and to show your potential, I just know one thing- hard work never goes unnoticed.

——————————————————————————————

Od kako sam pocela da blogujem uvek sam radila na sadrzaju i trudila se da vam pruzim najbolje kako bi moji citatelji bili zadovoljni. Kada je blog konacno krenuo da raste i da se razvija, sa njim su dosle i neke stvari o kojima nikada nisam ni sanjala, tada su pristigle poslovne ponude i sve ostalo znate i sami. Od kako je ovo postalo moje glavno zanimanje dobila sam mnoga pitanja i neki od vas su zamolili da napisem post u kom vam otkrivam sta ja mislim da je najbitnije da uradite kako bi vas blog postao uspesan i prepoznatljiv.

Moram da napomenem da nisam strucnjak, ali nakon 4 godine bavljenja ovim imam dovoljno iskustva i znam sta je potrebno za uspesan blog.

Trenutne statistike kazu da postoji preko 155 miliona blogova, broj je toliko zastrasujuci i cini mi se da u danasnje vreme svaka mlada osoba u modernom svetu ima blog. Kako uciniti vas posebnijim, privlacnijim i steci citatelje? Nema pravila, ali mislim da postoje odredjeni trikovi kojima mozete pospesiti uspeh vaseg bloga.

Najbitnija stvar je azurnost. Bitnost ove stavke je nemoguce docarati i to je nesto sto bih volela da sam znala od starta. Naravno da treba da se posvetite kvalitetu a ne kvantitetu, ali morate imati odredjeni raspored da bi citatelji znali kada da posecuju vas blog. Celu prvu godinu blogovanja pisala sam “kako kad”. Dva putamesecno ili dva puta nedeljno postovanje totalno je zbunilo moje citatelje, s toga nisu redovno posecivali blog i posete nisu rasle. Od trenutka kada samobjavila da cu izbacivati novi post svaki drugi dan primetila sam neverovatan rast. Sada kada blogujem svaki dan, moji citatelji posecuju Glam&Glitter i do nekoliko puta na dan.

Azurnost na drustvenim mrezama je takodje veoma bitna. Znam da ovo nije neka novost, ali ako se zapitate kako ste vi otkrili vecinu blogova otkricete kako i da reklamirate svoj. Meni moji dragi citatelji cesto pisu da su me pronasli na instagramu, tako da ne prodje nijedan dan da ja nesto tako ne postavim, podelim ili objavim, jer znam kakav to uticaj ima na posecenost i rast broja posetilaca na blogu.

Ukoliko tek zapocinjete svoj blog i radite na izgradnji publike, preporucujem vam da osim sto blogujete redovno posvetite malo vremena i sirenju svoje mreze u industriji. Pronadjite svoje omiljene blogove i pokazite interesovanje. Najgore od svega za blogere je kada im neko spamuje blog i drustvene mreze komentarom “pratite me”. Potrosimo mnogo vremena radeci na sadrzaju, kreirajuci interesantne teme za citatelje, te je s toga frustrirajuce kada neko na to posmatra kao na prostor za reklamiranje. Ostavite komentar koji ima smisao i svrhu,slobodno onda ostavite link ka svom blogu. Ovo ne samo da ce vas uciniti vecim u ocima tog blogera vec i ostalih citatelja te ce se pozitivnije odraziti na vase posete.

Postoji more blogera koji postavljaju svoje odevne kombinacije, vecina nas cak i poseduje iste stvari, zato se nemojte bojati da budete drugaciji. Moja prednost je sto negujem svoj zenstveni stil, koji je uz to prilicno saren sto je sada veoma retko. Najpopularniji blogeri furaju neki monohromatski fazon, ali to me nikada nije nateralo ni da pomislim da promenim svoj stil.

Vec sam spomenula kvalitet i da, znam da moze biti jako tesko napraviti dobar sadrzaj, pogotovo ako uz blog imate i posao. Ipak, napravite raspored, tako da vase fotografije ne pate zbog drugih obaveza. Svetle i ostre slike slikane na dnevnoj svetlosti su ono sto citatelji najvise vole, a brendovi takodje. Ako zelite da pokazete taj duks u mracnoj sobi, boje se nece dobro docarati, a to moze odbiti brendove da saradjuju sa vama. Cilj ovog posla je da inspirisete ljude i pokazete im sta sve mogu da kupe, iskombinuju i kako da nosite neke stvari, zato im dajte razlog da se vrate na vas blog.

Mozda mislite da vam je za ovaj posao neophodna beskonacna kolicina stvari, gomila sminke i vrhunska oprema, ali to je daleko od stvarnosti. Ja cesto delim odecu svojim prijateljima, rodbini, dobrotvornim svrhama, i iako znam da imam mnogo sada, tako nije bilo kada sam i zapocela. Ako pogledate moje prve postove videcete da su se dve-tri torbe stalno vrtele, znala sam uvek kako da ih kombinujem drugacije. Ukoliko imate neke osnovne stvari to ce biti sasvim dovoljno. Takodje ukoliko sve drugo propadne, mozete pozajmiti odecu od prijatelja i rodbine. Ja to ne volim i izbegavam jer nije u skladu sa mojim konceptom bloga. Na blogu vam pokazujem kako kombinujem stvari koje mogu naci iskljucivo pod mojim krovom.

Sa svim ovim savetima ne zaboravite i neku svoju pricu, umetnite svoju licnost u svoj blog, jer citatelji moraju znati koga to prate. Moj blog je poceo rasti kada sam prvi put pricala o studiranju napolju, o karijeri i izazovima na koje sam naletela u zivotu. Obavezno dajte neki licni pecat svemu sto uradite i na taj nacin nikada necete biti izgubljene u moru blogera. Ovo je sjajna industrija i kao kreativne individue imamo prednost da inspirisemo ljude sirom sveta da im pomognemo da budu bolji i da iz sebe izvuku maksimum.

What do you think?

  1. thank you Tamara, it’s so great to get tips from a pro like you! I really notice that posting almost every day makes my visitor numbers grow. It’s great that you kept your style, I’m not a huge fan of minimalistics outfits!

    Ali kako ako nemamo fashion blog, nego su nam postovi slicni tvom Monday Confessions, imamo odredjene teme o kojima pisemo? Molim te odgovori.

  3. Jana says:

    Ovako sam ja dosla do tvog bloga..
    Nisam mogla da naucim istoriju i onda sam sela za komp i ukucala savete za ucenje i u moru videa zainteresovao me je tvoj..Pogledala sam i nisam bola svesna sta je to youtuberi bloger posle par meseci naisla sam na tvoj blog i pratim ga do dana danasnjeg.Motivises me uvek i zato te pratim ne zbog autfita i tako tih stvari vec zbog motivacije oko ucenja organizacije,putovanja…

  9. Anonimus says:

    Nadam se da sledece teme nece biti vezane za blog. Za nas koji nismo blogeri moram priznati da su ove teme postale nezanimljive. Inace, volim monday confession, samo naprijed ;)

    • Nazalost ja ne mogu svima ugoditi… Trudim se da svima posvetim vreme tako da od nekih 12 Ispovesti samo dve su bile vezane za blogovanje, a tu je i bilo onih o samopouzdanju, iskrivljenoj slici medija, odbijanjima, kako reci ne, o evoluciji licnog stila, o biraniu karijere itd itd, tako da ako ih nisi procitala predlazem ti da kliknes na tag Monday Confessions napravis solju caja i uzivas :***

  10. Always love to read your Monday Confessions. They are so thoughtful and are keeping me motivated to get going with my own blog! Keep up the good work!

    Love, L

    I think this is really solid advice, especially this paragraph, which I find so true:

    “There is a sea of bloggers posting their outfits, most of us own same pieces, so don’t be scared to be different. My big bonus is that my personal style is pretty girly, feminine and colourful, which is rare at this time. Most popular bloggers are pretty edgy and love monochrome dressing, but that never made me change my style or be scared of being myself.”

    I found myself reflecting on this SAME topic as of late. I have a fashion blog, but so does everybody else. What is it that sets me apart? What makes my style unique?

    Thanks for the fantastic reminder and inspiration:)

    Draga T…
    Sa nestrpljenjem ocekujem Ponedeljak…jer znam da ce me uz solju dobre kafe, opustiti neka nova prica vezana za zivot jedne lepe devojke. Kao sto rekoh vec… imam malo vise godina od tebe, ali i porodicu sa kojom se ponosim…imam i fakultet koji u Srb… nista ne znaci, ako neznas da se izboris sa ajkulama. Od tebe stalno ponesto novo naucim…Vec godinama vucem moj stari tefter koji se raspada…i sad konacno sve organizujem u novi…blog nemam… i ne planiram da ga imam…ali zato imam cerku kojoj sam posvecena…(najverniji pratilac)… nije samo rec o blogu… vec o zivotu u opste! O stilu i nacinu zivljenja…i deljenja zivota sa svima nama… svaka cast T…uspela si da zagrlis sve ljude koji prate tvoj fantasticni rad!

    Znam da sam ti skoro rekla nešto kao da se nisi promenila od početka blogovanja i dalje to tvrdim. Sećam se kad si izbacivala i ta dva posta mesečno da je to rađeno sa toliko pažnje i jedva sam čekala da snimiš video.Ali mislim da je kod tebe presudan odnos prema čitateljima,uvek srdačna,kulturna.Pa ću opet da kažem da se nisi ništa promenila. Samo se nadograđujes :)

    Thank you so much for posting this article, I found it so useful and inspiring! I have only recently started my lifestyle, fashion & beauty blog and, although I am posting every day, sharing on social media and posting friendly comments on other blogs I love, I am yet to see anybody taking an interest. Do you have any tips for anybody in the very, very early stages of creating a blog? I don’t want to give up as I really enjoy writing my posts and taking photographs but I am beginning to become disheartened that nobody is interested! Thank you :)

    Poštovana Tamara, zaista je fino sa tvoje strane što si iskrena prema svojim čitaocima. Ova rubrika me natjera da svakog ponedeljka posjetim tvoj blog i da dam sebi motivaciju da čovjek može sebi da stvori sve u životu samo radom i ljubavlju prema svom poslu. Volim da gledam tvoje slike na instagramu jer na taj način motivišem sebe da učim i da položim još ovih nekoliko ispita, da počnem da radim, zarađujem i da možda nekada uspijem sebi da priuštim neku brendiranu torbu, cipele ili kvalitetnu kozmetiku. Do tada ću uživati u tvojim zaista impresivnim slikama. Pozdrav.

  30. The whole reason behind why I sarted to follow you two years ago was seeing your ig account with so many colourful outfits that served as a great inspiration since I’m one-colour-kind-of-girl (I tend to fall in love with a certain colour and always gravitate towards it while shopping for new outfit items, but I do combine it with other colours, of course).
    Also, I sometimes felt like I’m exposing too much of my personal stuff that people don’t really care about while blogging, but seems that sometimes exactly that might be something that draws people to your blog.

  31. Thank you for posting this article and being so honest. It is very useful for someone in the very early stages of blogging. I have joined bloglovin and not only discovered a lot of new blogs through it but also gained a couple of followers. As well as posting on a schedule I do believe that you are right in saying that one should be social. Thank you xx Dandelion Blue

    I love this post and I agree with everything you grow! Just now I realized how important it is to add a personal touch, as my 10 random facts about me preformed much much better than my outfit posts! Seems like readers really need to see some personality in the posts!

    I started following your blog last year in April. I was preparing myself for studying abroad and with that comes a lot stress and planning, you know, and my sister was trying to convice me to watch your videos about studying and your blog. First I was rejecting to take anyone’s advice’s, especially from some girly fashion blog :)
    but you made so motivated since the beginning I started listening what you’re saying, I’m very thankful for your advice’s!

    Draga Tamara,
    pre svega ti zelim srecne praznike i veoma uspesnu godinu.
    Zaista sam iscekivanjem docekujem ponedeljak jer pre svega ucivam u tvojim ispovestima, ali i tada imam osecaj kao da smo na kafi i slusam prijateljicu koja mi prica nesto od poverenja.
    Pratim te vec godinu dana i stvarno je blog sve bolji i bolji, ali bih volela da ima vise postova sa odecom i kozmetikom koja je jeftinija pa sammim tim nama i dostupnija. :)

    Uvek od tebe nesto novo naucim. Nadam se da će biti neki Božićni outfit. Poljubac :*

  39. Such a great blog post. I also love that you write in two languages on your blog. There are so many European blogs out there that I would love to read, but can’t! It is also great hearing the little personal touches – it’s something I try to add in my blog all the time where I can, without rattling on for too long… haha xo

    I always love your monday confessions! It’s great how honest and open you can talk about your blog and your experiences, that really makes you authentic and sympathetic!

  43. jenny says:

    Great advice for the new year lovely! I try to keep the astaethic of my posts consistent and post the same sort of days every week, I’ve turned a few things from brands to do this (even though I felt as a newbie I maybe shouldn’t have) so that it doesn’t look like I’ll do anything and everything. I totally get the spammer thing too – it annoys me as much to see it on another page as it does on my own as its so selfish! Only comment if you have something proper to say. Thanks again for the tips, hopefully I can grown my blog as well as you have yours xx

    This post is amazing. I started my blog about six months ago and felt like I was going nowhere. Once i started becoming consistent with my posts and adding personality, my numbers starting going up. I still have a lot of work to do, but this post helped me see some things I could improve on. Thank you! http://sweetheartsofthesouth.blogspot.com

    Slažem se sa svime navedenim, iz iskustva s blogom, sada stranicom, kao i radom na portalima. Dodala bi još da treba ono što radiš, raditi s ljubavlju jer nema gore stvari kada se nešto forsira.

    Također, mislim da bi novi dizajn podigao tvoj blog na višu razinu.
    Pozdrav!

  64. I am really excited every monday to read your confessions. They are always well written and very thoughtful, with lots of good advise. I just started my own blog and you are so right about consistency. Keep up the good work;)

    Hi Tamara,
    Your words of encouragement are exactly what I needed to see and read. I absolutely love your blog and your willingness to be open and candid about blogging was really eye opening. I just started my blog only a few days ago but it is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I have been trying to find someone to reach out to for advice and the fact that you openly put it out there and were willing to let the world know “the secret” is amazing. I can’t wait to keep reading your posts new and old, I think you’re amazing.
    Keep doing what you’re doing, I will hopefully continue to learn from you as I travel through my blogging journey.

    For me, the key to your success is that you seem very natural and close. A person with the same problems, dreams and fears as others. I love your style and obviously is what push me to visit your blog, but your personality is why I visit it every day. When you became aunt I was so happy for you and your sister. When you travel it looks like I was the one travelling. That’s what makes the difference from other blogs. Oh! And I can not forget the ‘Monday confessions’ which I think it’s a great decission.

    Love,
    Aixa!

  70. Great post Tamara!
    I like to find inspiration in bloggers with the same or different style.
    I love to combine many colors in an outfit.

    Wow, your Monday Confessions is a terrific series! You’re very relate-able and give some great tips on starting a blog. I love your writing style as well, simple but engaging. Thanks for sharing these tips with new bloggers out there!

  72. Olivia says:

    These are some great tips and a lot I will be using myself! I really try to be active on all of my social media sites and sometimes that becomes more difficult than I would like it to be, but I try. I also try to blog thrice a week!

  73. Thanks for the tips :). I also liked your post about getting invited to fashion week. I am glad to know that other people are also a bit intimidated by the sheer# of other fashion blogs out there :).

    I started blogging in Jan (almost two months this Thursday). I was quick to do my research before starting a blog, as I’d already had a Bloglovin account.

    Posts like this are a huge help for new bloggers, or bloggers wanting to take their writing further. I find it’s given me a whole new boost of motivation, because people keep returning each Thursday evening to read (always a pleasure) :) x
