Today marks my 3 month-iversary of my blog (and yes that is a thing!).
I feel like I’ve come a long way since my first proper blog post and so I thought I’d share what I’ve learnt about blogging over the last 3 months.
There’s nothing that puts me off a blog more than one that posts about something completely different every week with no links whatsoever. You can get away with categorising your posts on different pages, but I much prefer a blog with a clear theme.

I always do my utmost to avoid any grammatical/spelling/formatting errors. It just looks unprofessional if there are any.
I’ve found my blog posts with an eye-catching image in get a lot more engagement. I think it’s often an easier read if the text is broken up in places too.
The title page from our CIPR award entry. Quite literally eye-catching.
Don’t let it become a chore
So far I have really enjoyed blogging and I want to keep it this way. I think you can often tell when a blog is someone’s passion and those are a much nicer read than the bloggers who write out of duty to do so.
What have you learnt from your own blogging experience? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
Until next time…
