How to Find a Signature Brand Voice for Your Blog

I spent last weekend dealing with my blog as my blog layout got all scattered and all over the place. After I finished redesigning the theme and all that, the redirection from my old permalink has gone wrong. November wasn’t an excellent start for The BeauTraveler, I figure.

Initially, I wanted to continue my Indochina trip post last weekend, but since I had to deal with all the back-end stuff for my blog, I decided to do it later. And instead, I want to write about blogging again this time.

And today, I want to share the tips to find your signature brand voice for your blog, because I think your brand voice is essential as this will make you stand out among others no matter how saturated you think your niche is.

I know for sure that not everyone likes the way I write or the brand voice I have for this blog. I’ve been criticized a lot for the way I deliver stories or information. Or guess what? The incorrect grammar I use in the post. As if English isn’t my third language!

Blog Trial and Error: What Works and What Doesn’t Throughout My Blogging Journey

Hi everyone!

I figure it’s been a while since the last time I wrote something related to blogging. I just deactivated my Indonesian blog and I’m currently in the mood to talk about my blog trial and error. I’ve been blogging for forever, but I only took blogging seriously (and not for the sake of journaling or ranting) since 3 years ago.

Now that I decided to deactivate my Indonesian blog, it’s obvious that there’s something about it that doesn’t work to my liking. So, here I am writing about the blog trial and error that I’ve done throughout my blogging journey in the past few years.

Besides, during this difficult time in the quarantine, I know some people might run out of the ideas to kill the boredom. Well, you might as well consider starting a blog to spend in your free time. So, what’s up with blogging this time?

Guest Post, Collab Post, and Link Building: What They Are and Why They Matter When You Start Blogging

It’s been a while since the last time I wrote a post on blogging. It’s not exactly my favorite topic to write about, but I think the benefits of me writing about it is that I could somewhat explain it in words that a 5-year-old would understand.

You know, the benefits of having English as the third language. You can write in it, but you know that there are still some flaws in-between that a bilingual or a trilingual like you could relate. And that’s the kind of information that I wish I could get the first time I started blogging in English. 😛

Anyway, after several attempts to write posts on the blogosphere topic, now it’s time for me to write about something essential when you just start blogging. When you want to take blogging seriously, apparently just write is not enough. You also need networking to get more exposure to what you do.

You might be not a fan of networking ideas. I mean, I know I am not. But when it comes to blogging, networking is somewhat easier than I thought it was. Some networking activities that I’m glad I’ve learned so far are these three things that I’m going to write today: guest post, collab post, and link building.

So, what are they and why do they even matter?
