Kamile Niunevaite | University of Sunderland

Journalism BA (Hons)


What makes a good blog, first of all, is high quality photos (not just randomly taken), because people usually scroll down a blog and are too lazy to read lots of text. So pictures create an impression. Originality and a fresh idea of your blog are also one of the most important things (as well as some fun and different point of view). Before starting a blog you should decide what your main idea is and concentrate on it. Not everyone is born to be a blogger but if you have an idea that you’re really passionate to write about, then start it now and try to be the best in your sphere.

Think about your readers. It’s not only about you who have to be interesting, but about people who have to be interested.

Find your own type of blogging.

Be original.

Be creative.

Be brave and relaxed when talking in front of camera ( haha, the most difficult thing ever).

Be active and sociable.

Take lots of pictures and videos.

Take enough time to prepare every blog post.

Never forget that it takes time, imagination, skills and hard work to make a good blog.

If you like what you do – do it and blog about it!
