Hey you guys. So I was going to create a YouTube video for this topic but I figured it would make more sense to talk to you guys about this topic on my blog.
I get a lot of questions about how to start a blog. So I’ve decided to give you the three steps to begin and some advice.
The 1st step to starting your blog is:
Figure out what you are going to blog about.
You can blog about anything. The weather, your hobby, DIY projects, your thoughts and ideas, or even your favorite reality tv shows.
The 2nd step to starting your blog is:
Find a free blog source like WordPress, Blogger, and or Tumblr and create your account.
Most sites are free. The 3 listed above are free. So all you have to do is sign up and create a post. It’s not hard so don’t be intimidated. All you need is an email, your name, and a unique name that you plan on calling your blog.
These sites already have customized designs for your blog so you don’t have to be a coder to make your blog cute.
The 3rd step to starting your blog is:
You need to find your confidence. A lot of people are afraid to blog because they don’t want to be judged. If you feel that way, you can help yourself by getting into the mindset that you are only going to blog for you starting off. Anything you post is going to be for your enjoyment. Nobody to judge you, only your acceptance.
Once you get comfortable after a few posts, you will then not be so afraid to post. Eventually you will get so comfortable with blogging, you will then be excited to share every post.
The advice I have for you is :
Blog about anything you want. Whatever it is, I hope you guys choose to blog about positive content.
Be sure about yourself, and know that what you are sharing is going to be appreciated by others.
Allow your blog to be your platform to make a difference in this world. Be creative and see what you can contribute to.
People love to feel that they can relate, so don’t hold back. Maybe a thought or a story you have to share will help someone feel like they are not alone.
If you want a custom domain name (.com) you will need to purchase it. It’s not expensive. It’s anywhere from $18-$20 a year depending on what site you use. It’s worth having if you want to be taken seriously as a professional.
You don’t need to be perfect to blog. Allow your blog to be your space where you don’t have to try to be perfect. This is a place for you to be you. Approach your blog with love and acceptance of yourself and others will do the same.
I want you guys to know that I support you and know that you guys can have a successful and amazing blog. If you guys have any other questions on this topic, please be sure to leave them in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
