Having been blogging for over a year now, I have started to develop new skills with all things blogging. As I've mentioned before my girlfriend Laura is a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger and has been blogging for longer than me. She was the one who got me into blogging and she gave me a lot of help getting my blog up and running. After getting into the swing of things I soon realised that there are perks to both of us blogging.

Photo's

There have been times for us both when we have been really busy and have needed photos doing for posts, but being able to help each other out taking photos to get the best lighting during the day while the other one is out comes in extremely handy.

Post Ideas

I should think there have been a lot of bloggers out there that will have hit a brick wall when it comes to thinking of ideas and you just can't seem to come up with any good content. Having someone to bounce ideas off who understands what is needed in a post will help prevent you from banging your head against a wall.

Combine Your Skills

Realistically, you can't be good at everything. With me and Laura being better at certain things, combining these skills to help each other has been so valuable. I have been taking photos longer than Laura and can help her with this, and she is better at HTML and using Photoshop, as you can see in her post. Being able to help and teach each other things makes for better quality content.


Promotion

Growing your blog following and readership is a key part of blogging. Being able to help promote each other on social media comes in very useful. I know that Laura has a much bigger following and therefore it benefits me more when she promotes me, but being able to do this for each other can help both of us grow and progress with our blogs.

Unique Content

When doing lifestyle and travel posts, being a couple who blog can sometimes give you a different perspective and opens up new ideas for posts. Travel posts can become more interesting as you can link to each others content to see different sides of a trip. More relevant to Laura's blog, you can do entertaining content such as the 'Boyfriend Does My Makeup' which can often be quite popular.

Are you a blogger couple or have someone who also blogs?
