Want to Start Blogging?
I was very intimidated to start my first blog. Oh how I wish I had a Mentor that shared their Blogging Tips from the Start and Resources. No worries- I have it summarized blogging tips for you and resources that will also help you pay for your blog expenses as you grow!
*If you are already blogging and would like to collaborate- scroll down to the end.
It all starts with 5 Basic Blogging Tips!
- Identify your Niche. I’ve seen tons of different themes: Food, Fashion, Photography, Children, Teaching and some really fine niche ideas like hamster cages, followers of favorite designers and children’s fashion designers that sell their pattern downloads right on their site!
- Come up with a Name! Check the availability of your name on all platforms- Domain, Email and all Social Media Platforms.
- Select your Colors. Selecting a color theme- 1 main color and complimentary shades of colors to go along with that. There are color palettes you can purchase on-line but having a idea in mind will help you make a decision.
- What is the goal for your Site? Are you creating your blog for fun- hobby, or to grow into earning passive income or supporting an existing business? Take some time to start a journal and write down some goals to help you stay on track.
- Set it in motion! If you are just getting started I would highly recommend Suzi with Start a Mom Blog. Continue reading for more on her program below. If you are seasoned and would like a new look or help with refreshing your site I have links for designers I have used below. HAVE FUN!
