Head here to find out how to win the ultimate blogging experience.
If you want a job in journalism, Impulse are encouraging you to live your dreams and just go for it! Blogging is a great place to start, so here’s how to get ahead in one of the best careers around...
Learn to Code
Now don’t worry, we’re not talking MI6 level super-coding here. Refine the html skills you nailed on Tumblr, aged 14, with coding basics. There are many free courses and tutorials online; try one of these.
Nobody likes a Debbie Downer; show support to fellow bloggers in the community by posting positive comments and being supportive of new writers on the scene. Not only will this get your name out there, but the good karma will come right back around.
Consistency is Key
Keep consistent with your blog, so your readers can enjoy its content with ease. Simple things, like posting on the same day each week, ensure readers don’t have to ‘work’ for it – ain’t nobody got time for that. Think of it this way: imagine you had to guess when GBBO was on each week… we’re getting stress hives just thinking about it.
There are so many bloggers out there, it’s crazy. To stand out from the crowd, you need to find your unique selling point and stick to it. For example, if you’re a make-up blogger, you don’t wanna fall in line with a thousand wannabe-Kylie-Jenner bloggers. Do your thing and own it!
