As a heavy consumer of blogs and youtube videos, I know what I like to read and watch, so I’m applying some guidelines for myself and to let you know what to expect from this blog:
- Regular updates – I know everyone gets busy and real life gets in the way, but since I won’t be out shopping this year, I’ll have plenty of free time to update this blog! My target is to post on average once a week at minimum.
- Provide useful information – like where to buy the product, the price, how many grams is in the product, the ingredient list if available
- Original content (OC) – I’m mentioning this specifically regarding the blog’s photographs – of course my blog posts will be OC! – where possible, I’d like to post my own photos to show the products’ true colours* and how they really look candidly
- Brevity – ’nuff said.
Bear with me as I set up this blog. For now I’m using the free version of wordpress until I get more familiar with the interface, and then I may commit to $100 per year for a customized version and my own domain. We shall see. I know some CSS and have dabbled in web design before and it’s driving me bonkers that I can’t move the header positioning right now!
