Set Standard: Blogging Like A Pro

Over the last decade or so, blogging has become one of the most popular forms of online expression. Anyone has the power to start something like this, and the range of acceptable topics is practically limitless, making this media one of the most freeing there is. Of course, though, with so many blogs out there, trying to break into it can feel almost impossible. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring one of the best ways to boost any blog; a set of standards.

The Site
To begin, you won’t be writing anything quite yet, as you will have a little bit of work to do to make sure that your website is up to scratch. Thankfully, systems like WordPress make it incredibly easy to get started on your own blog site. Everything, from the domain to the color scheme, should be chosen to reflect the content you’ll be making. This will help to make the blog recognisable, while also ensuring that it is all consistent. When things are designed in different ways but used on the same project it can start to look very cheap.

The Content
Even with the website sorted out, you won’t quite be ready to start writing, as you’ve got some content to think about. It usually works best to plan the content you’re going to make for at least a couple of months at a time. This will keep things consistent, while also giving you the chance to check your ideas over and over, ensuring that they are as good as they can be. The sort of topics you cover should always relate to one another, or people will find it hard to know what your blog is aimed towards.

The Writing
There’s nothing worse than a blog with poor grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. Even though you’re not a professional writer, people will expect your content to be produced to the same standards as everyone else on the web. To achieve this, taking a couple of writing courses could boost your skills to the next level, while also preparing you to write on your own website. To test this out, you can find a sample guest post pitch email template here which can give you the chance to reach out and make content for others. This is a great way to test the waters and get some feedback.

The Contributors
Finally, as the last area to consider, it’s time to think about the other people you’ll be letting post on your blog. There are loads of new bloggers out there looking for the chance to guest post on other people’s sites. As long as someone is writing in the same field as you and is good at what they do, it shouldn’t be any problem to use some of their content. In fact, this can be a great way to boost your presence when you’re first getting started.

Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start working harder on the time you put into your blog. This sort of hobby is great for anyone looking to make a little extra cash or simply find a way to express themselves on the internet. With some being nominated for Pulitzer Awards, it’s easy to see how serious blogging is becoming, and you could have everything you need to take a slice.

Things People Believe About Feminists (And Why They're Wrong)

When there is a movement, there is always a counter-movement. It happens in microcosm, a response to the mildest of things. If the general agreement in the populace is that a particular song is the best by a particular artist, a secondary group will appear purely for the purpose of disagreeing, of applying contrarian practices.

Since its birth at the turn of the last century, feminism has had plenty of counter movements. It began with essential basics of human rights, such as the right to vote - and people argued against that. Then it moved onto the lives of women, right through second and third wave feminism.

Given that feminism has been around so long, it’s to be expected that there are opponents to it. It just so happens that in the last decade, those opponents have become more and more vocal - arguing back against a world where Beyonce stands in front of a “feminism” banner and women begin to see work towards a more equal society. Here’s the thing that happens; here are the counter…
