You're amazing! I love your whole blog, even your dont and your theme. I just started my own nail polish blog. Do you have any tips for new bloggers?

Hey! Thank you very much. Congratulations on starting your own blog. ^^

My tips for new bloggers: 

  • Be consistent in uploading. I struggled with this at times due to well, life but upload/reblog often so that people get used to seeing your name. It does take time. I found the less I posted the less people remembered me. 

.

  • Add watermarks. If you are uploading your own designs, be sure to add your username onto the picture [A watermark] this way your work cannot be published elsewhere without you getting some credit. I didn’t at the start of my blog and some of my pictures are now out there with thousands of people looking at them and I got no credit for them which sucks but I’ve learned. If you’re uploading others work, be nice and credit them. :]

.

  • Use social media. If you want to stick to one that’s fine, but if you are uploading your own work then I would strongly recommend signing up to other medias such as Facebook, Instagram, DeviantART, Twitter, Blogger and Pinterest. It gets your name and work out there to a larger audience. Even if you don’t think you want to use them, it doesn’t hurt to sign up anyway just to secure your username. If you do use more social media, be sure to add links to your other accounts. 

.

  • Be creative. As much as flower and polka dot manicures are awesome. I’ve noticed the more creative my designs are, especially if they have a theme to them and are different, you will see a better response from people, people like different. Some of my most popular designs people have liked are to do with video games, Doctor Who and characters.

I hoped these tips helped. Whilst writing this I’m thinking it may be a good idea to put all these into a post as I have a couple more but don’t want to chuck a load of text at you. :D
