Don’t worry, guys, I’m still blogging.
For the past few weeks I have been gathering new equipment for the blog. This includes cameras and backgrounds. This will allow me to take professional photos of products I review in the near future.
I feel that having better equipment will allow me to produce blog posts to my best standard. I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my posts and I always want my photos to look the best as well as the rest of the posts. Before this, I was taking photos on my iPhone. My phone’s camera isn’t the greatest quality as the phone is now almost 2 years old. So I went on a little adventure. I already had quite a few cameras but they had problems, they’re now all fixed. There was a camera I wanted that can really focus on products and produces photos of awesome quality, so I got it.
I felt like my background were a bit plain so I went and got some new backgrounds, along with some new photo props. I promised you guys that this year I would work my hardest on my blog and even though we are now 5 months into 2018, I finally have the money in order to make this happen.
This year, I’m going to be working with a few businesses, and I want to produce the best photos for these posts.
Which brings me to this week. This week, I have been on the search for small businesses to work with. I know a lot of bloggers complain about brands and businesses not being willing to pay £100 for a blog post but I believe this is different for smaller businesses. I own a small business and know first hand how difficult it is. Some months you could be making something like £800 from your business and the next you can barely make £40. I had mentioned that I wanted to do this last year but I didn’t have the equipment I felt was necessary to do the products justice. But now I do and want to help. I’m offering slots this year for small businesses, for free. This means I’m not expecting any form of payment from the business, only for the business to send me a product to review, photograph and post photos of on all my social media with links to the business (if you know of a small business that would be interested, please let me know).
And that’s where I have been, it’s been a rather busy past few weeks but I will be back to posting every Monday & Friday (with some Wednesdays here and there). I’m really excited to see what the rest of 2018 holds for the blog.
