It goes without saying that blogging can be considered as a real job. There are people everywhere in the world that can make a living out of this personal space. Even if I’m not one of those (but I still keep dreaming), after years of blogging I feel confident enough of telling a bit about what it is like behind the scenes.
If you missed my other post on Truth about Blogging, go check it out here.
Today I’m talking about Time Management… well, what is it? It’s the skill of managing our blogging time. Oh really?
You might have noticed from my Instagram feed or other bloggers’ Instagram feed that we post one picture of a shooting today and we post another picture of the same shooting a week later. This is not to fool our followers around nor because of a lack of content and ideas.
We need to space out the outfit pictures to the casual/flatlay ones, (portraits to full figure outfits) so our feed is not saturated, but feels natural. This is one of the latest tricks I have learnt, overanalyzing other bloggers’ feeds.
There is some special magic behind it. Think of your feed as of your personal diary. And know that people will read it. How do you lay it out? It’s important to give it a good direction, so your followers won’t unfollow you after a day or two, but will keep coming back to your crazy well managed pictures.
Also… time management is very important for your blog. Being such a vast platform, it’s difficult to always think of something new and special to write about. It’s difficult to create new outfits that are trendy yet original. This is why blogging is a total consuming-creative job.
Did you notice that in some of my recent pictures I was wearing a t-shirt? Well, I haven’t gone completely mad. Do you notice how some famous influencers post about their vacation trip at the Hawaii and then stroll around town with an umbrella on hand on their recent Insta Stories? It’s not we are time-travelling. We are just managing our time well.
Sometimes I shoot 4 to 5 outfits all in one day. This is due to a lack of time and also of a way of trying to save my spare time and do something else as well. Cause, as much as I love blogging, I need to do it on my free time. And this includes thinking of the outfits, choosing locations, taking and editing photos and writing blog posts.
Why do you think people get so mad at Influencers? Because they are able to do a dream job that many can just dream of.
Next time you see somebody on the street randomly changing from one outfit to the other, well it can be easily me. ( if you live in London, cause yes I am not time-travelling) Haha.
