How To Start A Successful Blog | 10 Blogging Tips For Beginners


Hi, everyone welcome, to my channel I post
lifestyle advice and beauty videos every Saturday and Tuesdays. So, if you need here remember to subscribe. So, I really want to talk about how to start
a blog. I really feel like since I do have my own
blog. I do have a lot of tips for you. I have specifically 10 tips for you to help
you start a successful blog. Always remember that when you first start
blogging, your blog is always going to be a work in progress. You might start off and six to nine months
from now your blog could look completely different. Your blog is going to be looking more developed,
more consistent and it’s just always going to be a work in progress no matter what. As long as you’re writing about topics that
you enjoy talking about and blogging about topics that interest you. Honestly, interest you; you’re going to be
successful. It’s okay if you want to start blogging because
you want another stream of income that’s completely possible. Many people are making five hundred dollars
to five thousand dollars plus a month with blogging. And of course, blogging; with blogging, there’s
multiple sources of income. So, there’s many different possibilities. So, my first tip when starting a blog is to
choose a main topic for your blog. Just use something that interests, you that
you’re honestly interested in. A good tip that I have is to make a list of
the things that you enjoy talking about. Look at what you enjoy reading about and this
will give you a good hint into what you might want to make your blog about. Just anything that you enjoy and feel interested
in is something that you can definitely speak about on your blog. My second step is to start to think about
your domain name. Do you want to be like your personal name? Or maybe you want it to be like a brand name
that you have in mind. Something, unique maybe that you want your
website to be called. My third tip is to choose a content management
system this can be WordPress.org or Squarespace. I recommend WordPress.org because that is
what I mean we use for my blog and it’s really simple. I really love WordPress so, you might have
to do a little research on those too and compare them and see which type of blogging site you’d
want to create and which one is going to be right for you. My fourth tip is to choose a hosting. There are many hosting providers out there. The one that I personally use is blue host
and I’ve really been loving them a lot. They have an amazing price and if you want
to learn more about them I’m going to link it in the description below for you to check
it out. I also recommend doing a little bit of research
and comparing the hosting providers and seeing which hosting provider you’d like to select
for your blog. My fifth tip to choose a theme for your blog
so, you might want to go to theme forest or creative market. These two websites offer a variety of WordPress
themes and even Squarespace themes depending on which content management system you decide
to go with. When you go in there is going to be a lot
of variety, a lot of themes to choose from and a lot of inspiration. My sixth tip; is to get into your website
after you installed your theme and did all of that you want to get into your website
and go ahead and think about adding your logo. Think about if you want to. Maybe you want to hire someone to do it. Or maybe you want to create it yourself. If you want to hire someone to do it I recommend
fiverr but if you want to design it yourself then I recommend going on creative market
and maybe checking out some of their fonts and some of their personal brand symbols that
you can use for your logo or maybe even local templates on creative market. I highly recommend that web site since it
helped me so much with my blog. Then you want to add categories to your blog. You want to think about your main topic that
you chose and break your main topic up into 5-7 plus subtopics and those are going to
be your categories. Of course, it can be as many as you’d like,
as many as you feel inspired and adding to your blog. So, for example; if you have a blog and your
main topic is health you can select subtopics such as nutrition, exercise, yoga, supplements
etc. Then you want to add your pages which are
your about, contact pages and any additional pages that you might have for your website. You also want to include an email sign up
form on your blog preferably offering your freebie they need to offer. So, that you can start to build your email
list. Then you want to include your social media
links and also analytics. It’s Google Analytics just to keep track
of where your visitors are coming from and it lets you know overall the amount of visitors
that are visiting your site per month. If you go with WordPress all of these there
is a plug ins. A lot of plug ins that makes everything so
simple. My seventh tip is to brainstorm post ideas. Maybe you want to get inspired on Pinterest
through a magazine. Maybe you want to make a mind map, to help
you with this mind map process. I recommend using a website called answering
the public along with answering the public. I also recommended using Google Keyword planner
to help you think of a blog post ideas’. And just to give you an idea of what others
are searching for. You might want to watch a tutorial on how
to use this tool if you haven’t used it yet. My eighth tip; is to create a content calendar. This is where you just pick how often you’re
going to be blogging, posting a blog, post on your blog, and where you’re going to post
it once a week let’s say for example; you’re going to post a blog post every Saturday. So, you want to on your content calendar you
want to write down the blog post you’re going to be posting for that Saturday. Scheduling your blog post undercounting calendar. Just keep me focused on work content you’re
going to be producing next for your blog and it will help you be more consistent and more
productive. My ninth tip: is to join Facebook groups and
Pinterest group boards that relate to your blog topics. Then when you post a blog post on your blog,
you want to share them. When finding Pinterest group boards, I recommend
a web site called PinGroupie. This website just lets you type in a keyword;
like the main topic of your blog and depending on what topic your blog is. It’s going to show you group boards that are
related to that. My tenth tip is to be consistent and rate
your monthly blogging goals. Blogging goals could simply be how many email
subscribers you want to gain in the next six to twelve months. How many visitors you want on your blog? How many products you want to create for your
blog in the next six to twelve months? And do you want to work with any sponsors? Just know that you only want to work with
sponsors that align with your blogging brand and your lifestyle. Do you want to monetize your blog using Google
Ads, media.net or something similar? Theses are just some of the blogging goals
that you can write for yourself. There are so many blogging goals that are
available for you to choose from. So, those are my ten tips to start a successful
blog. I really hope that these ten tips help you
start a successful blog. If you have a blog or if you’re going to be
starting one and what it’s going to be about I would love to get to know you and your blog. Remember and subscribe if you enjoyed this
