is there a particular order of steps you should use to balance half equations?

I balance the elements
then look at whether O balance
then add in water to the side which needs oxygen
then add H+ ions to the other side if necessary
then balance charges with electrons

Is this the correct way? is there a better way? thank you

Do you mean equations for electrolysis or regular chemical equations?

That's usually the way taught in school, first considering the Oxygen on both sides, adding water where need be, then compensating by adding H+ ions, then balancing with e-.
