I remember when I first started my blog. I remember saying to my husband I wanted to start writing a blog, I enjoyed reading them so thought I would give it a go. I remember him asking all the questions of why etc, and it was due to my life changing, and not being needed so much.
What I did not know at the time, was just how much work goes on behind the scenes in the Blogging world. Even now I am still learning new things.
This past year with many on furlough, or hours cut, have looked at other ways to make an income, with Blogging being a popular choice. If you have ever thought of starting a blog here are some tips to help you
1. Know you niche
Knowing your niche is important, think what you like to talk about, or what you feel you have a voice in ie
- home decor
2. Think of a name
Your blog name will become your brand name, so think of something that you like, is catchy and says who you are. Also research to make sure that no one else has your name.
3. Social Media
Set up social media accounts, these will be where you share your posts and any other pics to. Social media is an important way to get people to your blog
This is probably the hardest part of blogging, and something you need to take time to learn. Aqueous Digital has a post that explains about SEO and the important factors in ranking a website.
5. Join Groups
There are loads of groups of Facebook where you can ask other bloggers questions and get support. It is a very friendly and supportive community.
Starting any website takes time, never compare yourself to others. post regularly, and keep plodding on and you will find that slowly your followers will grow.
If you are a blogger do you have any tips to add?
