How To Blog On A Budget Tips & 10 Cheap Blog Post Ideas
One of the biggest misconceptions about blogging is that it requires a huge investment and basically you can only do it if you're wealthy. Even though it's very expensive to drastically improve your blog's quality. If you're just starting out, you don't have to buy a ton of makeup or the most expensive camera and artificial lighting. If after a while, it turns out you really love blogging, you can gradually upgrade your equipments. Keep in mind, "bigger" bloggers do get products sent for free, so a lot of the things you see been reviewed are not necessarily purchased with their own money.

When I first started, I used my phone to take the pictures and if you look back you can tell they weren't the best. But the problem wasn't the fact that I was using my phone, I just had no knowledge about lighting. Understanding how to use natural lighting will definitely help improve your photos. I have a post fully dedicated to blog photography, where I talk about cameras, lighting and even backgrounds.

REVIEW WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE
You don't need to buy every single new product release. You can start by reviewing the products that are already a part of your collection. It doesn't matter how long it's been since they have been launched. With the exception of limited edition items, because there is no purpose to talking about a product that your readers can't buy.

TALK ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE PRODUCTS
I love finding out more about other people's favorite makeup. This is a great way to find some amazing products and just like me, I know a lot of people like these kinds of posts as well. They are very helpful and I'm sure that you have at least one holy grail product to share.

GET THOSE DISCOUNTS
If you're going to purchase something, the smartest thing to do is to use discount codes and/or wait for sales. By doing this, you will be saving some cash.

Besides the following affordable ideas, I have two more lists with 25 last minute blog post ideas and 25 beauty blog post ideas.

  1. I need to get into the habit of reviewing what I already have, I feel like that's something I rarely do.
