Share Your Style: How to Start an Interior Decor Blog
So you’ve decided to chase your dreams and start your interior decor blog.
Don’t worry, you should feel a little nervous-that’s natural!
Keep reading for some quick tips that’ll help you get off your feet and rock your style.
Interior Decor Blog Starter Kit
There’s going to be a lot of things you’ll eventually want to tackle when it comes to your interior decor blog. But knowing the framework and what your bases are will help guarantee a strong blog. Get these things down first, and you may avoid headaches down the road.
You are creative, and you see the world in a way no one else does. Don’t be afraid to use that! Don’t try to create a blog that has everything.
If you want to focus on wood types, great. You’re into paint colors? Awesome. You know the ins and outs of flooring? Roll it!
Don’t try to be the blog that is simultaneously talking about Chinese Dragon wallpaper in one moment and then discussing the effects of how people can save money on solar energy equipment in the next.
Don’t Go Mainstream
What we mean by this is not to use a basic blogger site.
Using a basic package on something like WordPress or Blogger means they control your site and all monetization. Plus, having a site that says something about interior decor and then .wordpress.com looks confusing.
Keep your URL simple.
Pay for the premium and be independent.
Letting your site be self-hosted may sound scary because you have to buy it, but it’ll give you the freedom and flexibility you need to get your blog off the ground.
Advertisement on your interior decor blog doesn’t have to be a bad thing. It can actually be a really healthy way to provide for your followers.
Finding companies you like that are willing to partner with you is what’s key. Because if you like it, your followers should too.
Let’s say you’re into matching decor and flooring, a company that focuses on decorative concrete might be something to reach out to. But a company that’s into modifying electrical outlets to be USB instead of 12volt… well, not so much.
This should be more than your About page. Don’t make the mistake of creating an About page that only says things like, “Hi, my name is ____. I like _____.”
A strong About page will give people an idea of who you are, what your interior decor blog is all about, and why they should keep following you.
It should prompt companies and followers to contact you if they’re interested in a specific product or idea.
But, note this: Your About page should be apparent throughout your whole site.
From color patterns to font choices, backgrounds, and image use, your fingerprints should be visible. Remember, it’s your interior decor blog.
