Today’s prompt: Wed. | Dec. 6 – This Is How We Blog #AMonthofFaves – Essential Computer Programs, Browser Plugins, Websites and / or your blogging routine, blogs on blogging that you follow, blog tips you learned and used this year.
Since I just started blogging, this will probably be short. I have enjoyed reading everyone’s posts about blogging and can’t wait to see what next year’s post will look like!
This Is How I Blog..
I made my blog public in November of 2017, so I am a total newbie! I was reading forum after forum that just said if you want to start a reading blog, DO IT and quit thinking about doing it. I reached out to Rhiannon at Ivory Owl Reviews after reading a post about turning your reading addiction into a blog and it was because of our email exchange that I went for it!
I started off with a free website on WordPress but I quickly felt like if I wanted to do it for a long time, I was going to go ahead and take the plunge and purchase a domain. I went through Google domains, and somehow figured out how to have all of the traffic from the wordpress domain to my newly purchased domain. (I seriously felt like a tech person or programmer because I had ZERO idea what I was doing!) But after chatting with google help, WordPress Help, and reading a few forums, VOILA! You now have http://www.roastedromance.com!
I wouldn’t say I have a style- I want my website to be just that- my website! I also want traffic to said website, and I try to keep my reviews in the same format. I am not big on GIFs or Meme’s. I mainly like to give you some info about a book, my opinion of it, and how you can purchase it. I would like to continue to get a bit more personal and add my own style to my site, but I feel like my style is seen more on my Instagram feed (@RoastedRomance)
What do I blog on: My computer and my iPhone 8. I am in the market for a new laptop so if you have any suggestions send them my way!
What programs do I use to blog/social media with: I mainly just use WordPress on my website. I haven’t found any programs that I felt like I just had to have. I try to link each review to my website in the Review by title section to keep a running list. I also have a Passion Planner that keeps up with my schedule of when I would like to post things. Again, suggestions welcomed 🙂
Blogs on Blogging That I Follow: None- so send some suggestions my way!
Most non-techy thing I’m using for my blog: That would have to be the Passion Planner. It keeps my list of books I need to read, when teasers are scheduled to post, cover reveals, reviews and tours.
How do you blog? Do you have a routine? How many times do you post per day? Do you schedule posts? Let’s chat!
