My Blogging Goals!




To be honest, this week I am so behind on planning my blog posts. I am only a few weeks into my new blogging schedule and having such a busy week I have fallen behind. Last week I wrote a post which I was quite proud of which was all about the little things I worry about when it comes to blogging which you can read here, and it has made me think about writing this carry on post about what I want to achieve when it comes to my blog. There are so many things and skills I wish to learn when it comes to blogging, and I thought if I shared them you could share any advice you have, or stories about how you got better at blogging.



Pictures.
Not long after I started blogging I decided to invest in a good camera, not only to take my pictures for this but to also take pictures of clients when I have done their makeup for my portfolio. One of my main goals is to learn more about my camera and how to really use it. At the moment I'm mainly using the automatic setting however it feels like such a waste not using it to its full potential. Hopefully in time I will understand about shutter speeds, and all that jaz to create great pictures.

Videos.
I would love to have the confidence to start a YouTube channel, maybe that will come with time, but meanwhile I really want to learn how to create videos. I would like to start creating short makeup videos for my instagram page to start with then maybe take it further. My goal is to learn about all the different things that go into making a video, and hopefully with a lot of trial and error I will learn.

Editing
Another main goal of mine is to find an image and video editing software which is quite easy to use and learn how to edit images and videos. I am not the best really when it comes to technology however I would really love to learn how to properly edit pictures to make them look their best. If I want to start creating videos I will need to edit them also so this is a huge interest of mine.

Blogging Community
So far I have met lots of other lovely bloggers on twitter and those who leave me nice comments however I would like to get to know more of you. I want to get more involved in blogger chats and also take the time to leave more comments and interact with the blogger community more.

Blog Jargon
Even though I have had my blog for a long time, I am completely clueless when it comes to the technical side of the blog itself. All of these words and HTML codes I have no idea how to use or what they mean. My goal is to understand more of the technical side and how to use them to improve my blog.


So they are my main goals I wish to achieve to higher my skills and knowledge of blogging. please share yours too.

  2. Hi Zoe,
    For your photo editing, were you wanting to go all out in Photoshop or similar program (30 to 300 minutes of "tweaks" ) or were you wanting to do more of the iPhone App 30 second to 2 minute edits? Because whichever amount of time you are willing to spend will determine the quality of camera you invest in (great vs amazing).
    If you plan to do photoshop, you will need a camera that allows you to shoot in "RAW" (instead of JPEG) format, and you will also need the biggest memory cards available.
    For IPhone App type photo manipulation, shooting in JPEG is completly acceptable.
    Best of luck!
