Bright.Bazaar’s Guide To Blogging Infographic

Bright Bazaar Blogging Infographic FINAL-01-01

Today is my last day in Stockholm and I’m going to be so sad to leave this beautiful city. This morning I’m heading to the Stockholm Furniture Fair and then (hopefully!) squeezing in a museum before I leave for the airport. Before I head off I thought I would share with you all my Bright.Bazaar ‘Guide To Blogging’ infographic. When I was preparing my keynote speech to deliver at Meet The Blogger in Stockholm I was determined to find a way to condense my key points into a handy memento for my blogging pals in the audience; I think it can be difficult to listen to a lengthy speech and take proper notes at the same time. In the end I decided to create an infographic and used my speaker’s fee to have it specially designed and printed for everyone in the audience. I worked with my designer, Amanda, to create something that people might like to pin on their pin boards at home to give them a blogging high-five long after the conference finished. It’s actually quite a funny story: I was so engrossed in my Q&A session and relieved that the talk had gone OK that I forgot to hand the darn things out until my fiancé reminded me. I couldn’t believe I nearly forgot about them after I spent so long agonising over the wording, design and paper stock! Luckily, they did get handed out and it’s been so fun to see old and new blogging friends sending me Instagrams, tweets and emails of the infographic pinned up in their homes all over Europe. So for those of you that were unable to attend, here’s my How To Build A Bright & Successful Blogging Brand infographic for you to pin digitally instead. (P.S. This was originally designed for print but you can click here and zoom to see a larger version!)

    Beautiful, practical AND thoughtful. Definitely one of my favourite mementos of the entire weekend – thank you! :)

    It was lovely to see you again.

    Oh, and huge congratulations on your engagement! :D

    I feel like such a geezer. I’m afraid even with my bifocals I am having a hard time reading the infographic. Is there any place to see it a wee bit larger?

  • Reply susan February 5, 2013 at 12:54 am

    Love it, although is there a way to enlarge it? I tried clicking on it with no luck and am having trouble reading all the fine print. Let me know, would love to read more WIll, thanks!

    • Reply Will @ Bright.Bazaar February 5, 2013 at 1:07 am

      @Susan, Elizabeth – Sure, I’ve added a link at the bottom of the post for you. It was originally designed for print and not for web so that’s why it’s not optimised for the blog, sorry!

  • Reply Eva February 5, 2013 at 1:33 am

    Love this!

    So great.

  • Reply Emma February 5, 2013 at 1:37 am

    I’m new to blogging so this is SO helpful. Thanks so much!

    Tip for those having trouble reading it –
    Just open the image into its own window and then hopefully you can choose to zoom in.

    Bright, cheerful, practical and o so helpful. Thanks for sharing Will. :) I have printed a black and white copy for now. Sadly I don’t have a colour printer at home, but I am heading out later to have a colour one printed to pin to my mood board.

    The blogger meet up sounds fantastic as well. I wish I could have been there to hear your talk.

  • Reply Hannah February 5, 2013 at 8:25 am

    Will, this is awesome. I am just starting out in blogging and I’m sure I will refer back to this many times. Congratulations on a successful weekend in Stockholm, and I look forward to reading more nuggets of advice from you!


  • Reply tina @ Colourliving February 5, 2013 at 8:28 am

    Will, I. sooooo love this. What a brilliant idea and beautiful and sophisticated design.

    You’re so right about overwhelming note taking.. people learn best with visuals.

    As a Graphic Designer, I simply MUST have the printed version. Chi mentioned in her post it’s on tactile paper.

    Personally I think you should make them available for sale and I’d like to be your first customer. Name your price Sir!!!

    Enjoy your last day in Stockholm and say hi to the fiancé… x

    I just came back from Stockholm and still have to find a place for the infographic somewhere in my tiny “home office corner” And I see so many sharing it on their blogs and fb pages today as one of the highlights from the weekend. Well deserved!

  • Reply Gerard @Walnutgrey February 5, 2013 at 9:52 am

    Will this is a wonderful conference takeaway… I’ve been at enough conferences in my time to know that something succinct, palpable & personal is a real bonus for attendees. Well done you! And with great tips as well :-)
