Some have TSR accounts but don't come on here often. I believe this user called Geometrix is more famous as a youtuber than on here

Do any of you guys have any tips and advice for blogging?

https://www.travelblog.org/Bloggers/Bethphill/ - here's a blog I've done on my trips around Europe with my University History Society.

I really enjoy blogging, but I never know how to find a specific aspect to blog about? My travels didn't last forever and so I couldn't really refresh the travel blogs, though I will obviously continue when I go away again in the summer.

I don't know how to start and find a solid base to a blog, so any advice would be much appreciated please. Thank you

I would suggest just finding a topic which you are comfortable with. I blog book reviews, and because of a busy school life, I write and schedule my posts a couple of months before they are due - like a safety net. Once this school year is through, I'm going to add some more to my blog, like writing tips and stuff...

Well, what are you passionate about? You could blog about your passion...

Seeing as you blogged about travel, you could start a lifestyle blog which is a related category.

I've recently started a blog about life experiences, beauty, fashion and advice. It's not too good yet but check it out and give any advice?

Okay I'm wanting to start a blog, I just like the idea of being able to look back whether it's in a weeks time or a decades time and remember stuff and relive cool stuff, I don't really know where to start.

First, which would be the best 'platform' to start on?
I already have tumblr, but I tend to keep that private I only 'reblog' photos and quotes I feel I can relate to
I'd like something that has a cool to use app, I'm into bring able to change all I have from the click of a button whatever device I'm using (I found out about TSR yesterday and I downloaded the app to my iPad and phone after about 5 minutes)

Second, what would be decent to blog about, or how should I structure what I produce?
I have a few write-about-able interests, be it my sports and coaching, my motorbiking, my interest in outdoors and cool countryside places
I think it could be cool to base my blog around the loose topic of uni, how everything I do could tie in to uni in one way or another - sound a good idea?
Structure. Would it be better to keep it all written, or heavily image orientated? I'm thinking probably include quite a lot of photos so I don't bore myself as much as anything

Third, audience.
Are there actually people that follow blogs properly, do you have a blog or two that you follow?
I'd like the stuff I do to be seen, I already mentioned my tumblr which is something I keep more private I'd see this as the opposite to that, I want people to be able to see, comment, discuss etc

Fourth, simple question.
Am I putting way too much thought into this?

I use Wordpress and find it very easy to use. There is an App available that makes it easy to edit and publish posts, and the site is also simplistic. I find the dashboard easy to use, and the website itself is aesthetically pleasing.
Personally, I find Tumblr better for reblogging/posting pictures rather than posting pure text. I also notice a few people use Blogspot, which you may want to check out. Personally, I have found Wordpress to be easier to edit and read, but that may just be personal preference.

Write about what you are passionate about. If you oscillate between different topics (such as motorbiking, then the countryside) you may not get as many followers, so it is generally advised to stick to one topic and gain an audience from one particular niche. Having said that, if you are just interested in posting your thoughts, then just write about what interests you! Is there anything that has been on your mind lately? Did you read a news story this morning that you feel strongly about? Do you have an opinion on a certain topic that you'd like other people's thoughts about?

For example, when I first began my blog, my intention was to use it as a diary for my thoughts upon which I could look back on. It has now evolved into a platform to talk about Healthcare issues, culture and mental health. I'd recommend starting off on an interest or hobby that you have, then you can expand it from there
.
Many people blog about their experiences at university so it can certainly be done. If you feel you have a lot of things to say and it makes up a large part of your day-to-day activities, then I see no reason why you shouldn't give it a go.

I would also recommend you include a few images, especially if your posts are quite lengthy. It will help to break up the text, and be nicer to look at for the reader. People get turned away from big chunks of text.

I have a few blogs I follow, mainly orientated towards Healthcare and Mental Health. You need to think about your target audience if your main aim is more readers. If you talk about a specific topic, you can also get into some interesting discussions with other bloggers.

Yes. Just write!

Thanks dude I wrote one up yesterday with a quick introduction (russfeaturinglife.WordPress.com) I'm just going to see where it takes me really but I'll definitely keep your comments in mind!
I ride a YBR 125, restricted by my age but I'll have a Bandit 6 with my name on it come my 19th, fingers crossed anyway! Are you a biker too?

I am hoping to do the CBT soon. The only thing holding me back is my height (I am 5 foot) and my strength. I do however have a massive poster of a Kawasaki Ninja 250 on my bedroom wall.

I also think writing a blog about your life in University will be relatable to a lot of people, so I think that's a good place to start. I also find writing a blog to be therapeutic - it helps you reflect about things and raise issues you hadn't thought about.
Best of luck with it.

Hi everyone!
I have just started my brand new blog so apologies it's a bit empty at the moment. I just uploaded my first post today.

I want to raise awareness about bullying, mental health and other young people's issues like self-esteem and body confidence. I'm interested in how the media influence young people into thinking they need to look a certain way.

My next post tomorrow will be mens mags vs women's mags and how each portray women.

Please do have a look and follow
