  • tips what makes a good blog post

    I've been a craft blogger for a few years now, though not really certain what makes a good blog post
    A photo generally looks good. But content, should it be direct and to the point. Or more
    Personal - however when does your narrative become overlong

    What are others thoughts

    I do agree totally, and while I am also a craft blogger I wish I had the ability to keep to the point.
    I love that I try, and some of my pages can drift off into over 1000 words.
    When i just do a post, those tend to be compact, but a full story page ... OH dear

      I always include a lot of photos in my blog, I think it breaks up the text nicely. Some weeks I know what I'm going to blog about and others I have no idea what I'm going to base it on, and then suddenly I find I've managed to write a lot. For me, my blog and blogging style works well, and suits me, I think it depends on what your blog is actually for. Mine isn't a purely crafting blog (although 90% of it is) but I'm happy with it.

        do you think instructions included with photos about a project are of interest? Im only ever interested if this kind of posting, if I want to learn how to do things. But some folks do this as a matter of cause of most of their postings, which seems to much for me

          I think it depends on the tone and purpose of a blog... and the needs of the blog visitor. It is easy to hop form one to another if a blog post doesn't meet your particular needs

          BTW Lucy Blossom, I loved your blog ...I popped along as a result of this thread so Thanks Tracey

              It depends what route you are going down. If you are making to sell a finished item then no I would not give instructions, just details of the materials used ie cotton etc. If you are looking at maybe selling patterns in the future then yes details would be good and would enable you do sometimes give a freebie. Check out Bustle and Sew blog Helen does a bit of both and redirects to her site for patterns to buy, she does freebies to download plus her website to sell. Her monthly magazine is also a very good read.

                I dont sell from my blog, so I suppose some instruction at times may be of interest. Its just not wanting to bore folks with detail.... I think most folks like to see a good photo that may keep them reading if they are interested in what went into that project. I tend to give brief details like that

                  I don't sell from my blog but post my latest makes with a link to my website, hence I give no instruction as wil not give away my way of making things unless they pay for the privilege of being taught.

                  There are some blogs that show how to make something but usually have websites where all the components can be bought from to make said item.
