when you start out with a new blog it is an important idea to write out your goals and what it is you want to achieve in the short and long term. This helps you to stay on track and can help to hold yourself accountable. Always finish today’s tasks before starting to do the next days.
There are millions of people around the world who want to start a new blog and they are not sure how to get going or many others who have a blog but it is not being read or shared. We all need to learn a new skill set to get this going.
If you can start off with a series of How To’s your blog will grow exponentially. That is something I learned and have put into practice with this successful blog.
Don’t Be Afraid To Contact Me
I love hearing from you all so if you do have questions along the way don’t be afraid to contact me.
There are a ton of technical issues we need to get our heads around. I’m letting you into a secret here, this is not my specialty but there are many people who help me and can help you too.
Techie things that can be covered are Hosting, Niches, Themes, WordPress setup options, email marketing, and paid or free resources to name just a few.
joining an email list is a great way of learning from experienced bloggers, they want to know what you are struggling with. Why? they can write content that can cover many people’s questions all in one go. You are also helping the blogger to come up with new content Ideas so a bit of giving and taking going on.
A couple of great autoresponders to use on your blog are Aweber or Convertkit. It is very imperative that you make proper checks on autoresponders before signing up. This will be hugely dependant on your niche. There are certain types of autoresponder that don’t like you making money in certain ways.
I’m Lisa, that’s me in the photo above I am a mum of 4 grown-up daughters and 3 grandchildren One boy the youngest and 2 girls. My poor hubby is surrounded by women when we all get together 🙂
My drink of choice is Coffee, being English you would think it should be tea and it was until I was 27 now I can’t touch it.
When it comes to leisure time watching any series about cops, navy seals or the army is what floats my boat. What if anything do you like to watch? leave an answer in the comments.
I love affiliate marketing and working from home blogging if I could talk about these topics at every conversation I would be a very happy lady. Unfortunately, those around me may not be!!
Do I have any experience to offer You?
Well, I have failed miserably with a blog so I feel I’m able to share with you where it all went wrong and the ways things are different now. For example, how much quicker this particular blog has grown in a very short period of time.
Failing didn’t stop me and it shouldn’t stop you either. Failure is a massive learning curve that we can overcome with persistence.
