DIY Inspired Living
I’m wanting to build a web based, DIY, home improvement, home repair etc. platform that gives everyday DIYers How To instructions on almost anything for their home projects. This would include basic maintenance to major renovations.
Good luck, Lance! XOXO
Here is a very convenient system for creating a Mood Board, and a picture of what you want and size as desired. I believe that in order to attract a person’s attention to the text, there should be a good visual picture. And also thanks for the 8 tips that will help me write a post! Regards, Andy from https://papercheap.co.uk/write-my-essay
So many great tips here. Really love the info on making the graphics.
Hi Laura! We glad this was useful for you! XOXO
This is some really great info! A lot of people don’t know how much work writing a blog really is; thank you for sharing!
Thanks, Beth! Yes, everyone thinks it’s really easy and fun. Fun, yes. But it’s a lot of work!
It’s crazy how much time goes into making a post. I do both DIY and food posts on my site, and sometimes I miss the days of just working on something without having to stop to take pictures every few minutes. Haha! I finally learned how to use lightroom, but I still use Picmonkey for my collages, it’s so easy!
Lightroom is definitely wonderful for bulk simple editing! Honestly, we use Lightroom more than PhotoShop to edit high res blog photos. PicMonkey is our go-to for collages and quick edits and quick graphics, especially for social media!
Super interesting to read and understand and not super different than a food blog post. Thanks for sharing.
Nope, not different at all for food blogging! Thank you for checking it out, Billy!
This is so thorough! Thank you. You have such a lovely blog and so much work goes into each post!
Hi Rachael! Thank you for the kind words. We really wanted this to be helpful for other bloggers or just anyone who is curious about all the work that goes into blogging. XOXO
Intense! Amazing! Fantastic!
Best of the best in sharing so many informative suggestions, ideas, topics, lessons, and secrets to having a better blog, photos, and tools.
May I add, it’s easy sometimes to just focus on the narrative with an Instagram photo and not read blog posts but here is a perfect example of what I can miss out on.
This seriously made our day! Thank you so much for your kind words. Our main goal is to get readers following us on social media to also check out the blog too! XOXO
This was fascinating to read, I admit I am
a total DIY blogger wannabe. I’ve made everything in photoshop up until now and I can see how picmonkey makes it soooo much simpler and quicker! One question, how can you tell what DIYs people are searching for on google and Pinterest—is there some kind of “trending now” plugin or something you use?
Hi Jani! We love PhotoShop too but PicMonkey is definitely way more faster and simpler. Google does have a site: https://trends.google.com/trends/?geo=U to search trends and keywords. For Pinterest, you can click in the search bar and Pinterest will recommend some “trending ideas”. There are apps also for Pinterest.
Thanks so much for the reply, I appreciate it!!
No, Thank You
