Have you ever done a podcast? a Vlog? it’s time to try!
This is a great way to round out the end of your time off, as it gives something new to your blog and can introduce new readers at a time you should be able to pick up and be present for a zippy way to return to blogging more regularly.
It’s pretty common for bloggers to include a photo or graphic in every post, especially to increase their chances of being pinned on Pinterest. I still haven’t seen many audio only (or podcast)
Now, if I was the perfect blogger, I would be vlogging this. But I’m not – I find my voice strange on camera and haven’t quite gotten over that enough to film myself. So, as a cop-out, I’m going to link you to some posts by a range of bloggers who utilise multimedia:
- Hiking on the Gold Coast, Really? by Lotsa Fresh Air
- Vlogging (video blogging): Why you should and how to create a simple vlog for your blog by Redcliffe Style
- My Best Books of 2013 by Surely Sarah
- And of course, the ultra-popular Photo a Day Series by Fat Mum Slim
And I guess now it’s a blogging goal of mine for 2014 to do a vlog at some point…we’ll see how that goes!
What are your tips for including multimedia in posts?
