Hello everyone! Today I have the first part in Blogging 101!! I’ll be going through the 4 stages of blogging! I posted the first 2 today! Sometime next week I’ll post the other 2!
I Want a Blog?
So you’ve seen blogs and you’ve looked at them. And you’ve thought to yourself.. I want a blog too? Well then.. here’s somethings to help you get started on firing up your own snazzy blog!!
- Which program to chose
2. Picking a blog name and topic
This is the hardest part!! It took me like an 15 minutes to come up with mine but for most people it takes longer! Picking a name depends on what you want to blog about! Maybe you have a cat and thats who you’ll blog about your cat then do The Adventures of MrFluffers or something. If your blogging just generally like an anything goes. Then maybe you could but The Everyday Stories of a Southern Girl (if you live in the South). A topic is really gonna define your blog name!
3. Your first posts
Your first posts on your new blog are really going to need to be great! Because those are the posts people will judge your blog off of! The first posts I would recommend would be About the Blogger, About the Blog, Welcome, and just random stuff that defines you!! 🙂
4. Get a blogging personality that makes your blog different
Be yourself on your blog!! You want to have a personality that shines through your blog. Making it different from other blogs!! But most of all have fun and enjoy blogging!!
I’ve Been Blogging for 3 months and I have No Followers
This can happen your blog is great but you don’t get noticed!..
- Tell your friends and family about it!!
Tell your Grandma! Email your friends the link!! Post it on social media if you have one! 😉
Maybe if your allowed to comment on other people blogs do so! Maybe you found a blog like yours comment saying “I like your blog want to check out mine!”
2. Spruce it Up
Get a new theme! Add new pictures or new menus and widgets!
3. Do you have a posting schedule
Have a schedule try to imagine your next posts and say when your going to do them. Don’t take 2 week or 1 month breaks for blogging that will decrease views and people won’t come back for your blog!! 🙂
THE END OF PART 1
Hope y’all enjoyed!!
