Tips on how to start a blog for beginners
- Find your niche
- List content and topics
- Just get started
- Post and share
- Don’t quit, and stay consistent
Find Your Niche
To do this, think of a few topics that you are passionate about! Think about those topics and if you are able to write everything and anything all of the time! Once you have the ONE topic you chose, then narrow it down even one more time! For example, I write about being a mother, parent and raising our kids! Furthermore, I focus specifically on health and wellness for mom’s and women. This is a topic that I could write every day on because there are new idea’s and concepts being developed all of the time, with research and statistics backing it up!
Get out your journal, or content calendar and start writing topics on your topic! If you can list anywhere from 30-50 topics that you can write from 500-2000+ words on each article, then you’ve figured out your blog! Come up with a catchy name based on the content you are writing about then it’s time to just get started!
Just Get STARTED! The most important in How to Start a Blog for Beginners
Just do it! (I totally stole that from Nike). But seriously, just start. Write your post, and post your post! Get a website going and get hosting, this is so important! Site Ground has the greatest hosting for bloggers! Get started there, and get a WordPress site up and running! It does NOT need to be perfect! It can be so basic. This gives you a starting point!
