- Noor Anand Chawla from nooranandchawla
Noor Anand Chawla is a lawyer and lifestyle columnist for various newspapers and publications.
She says: my biggest challenge was gaining visibility for my posts. I used social media to advertise my posts but I had no clue of SEO and hence lagged behind on organic traffic. With time, I have taught myself and overcome this problem. Now I teach beginners how to use SEO from the beginning, so they can succeed from the start.
- Mary Balandiat from beautycookskisses
She says: the biggest challenge in running a Lifestyle and Beauty blog is making your website stand out from tons of others. My advice is to find your own unique voice and write from the heart. Give your readers a reason to want to read your posts. Don’t think that blowing up type size and inserting a lot of photos creates a quality post. What you should strive for is writing an informative post that can be supported without copying that is easy to read and grammatically correct.
- Richa Bhimani from theheavenbeauty
She says: as you have asked me one question so my biggest challenge in running a lifestyle and beauty blog was to provide a great and informative content which visitors would love to read and they will come back to my website for more updates.
- Candy Kirby from themombeat
She says: my biggest challenge when launching The Mom Beat was breaking through all the online clutter to reach an audience. There are so many mammoth sites that also cover parenting and lifestyle topics these days – publishing upwards of 50 articles a day, just in that space — that it’s hard for smaller operations to compete. I think the key to success is having a unique, distinct voice that keeps people coming back for more. For example, I use humor in many of my pieces – and I suggest beginning publishers figure out what works for them and distinguishes them from the pack.
