Starting a blog can be an exciting adventure. To some, it can also be a little daunting. There is so much to think about and you really want to get it right from the start, I’ve put this post together to give you a bit of help along the way.
First off, if you want to start a blog, then I’m guessing you already have some idea in mind of what it is going to be about. A quick search on google will bring up so many ideas for blogs, from fashion and beauty to travel and food, interiors, photography and so many more.
Once you have an idea for your blog then you need to come up with a name. I’ve recently shared a post on choosing the right domain name which ideally, you should make the same as your blog name. That post will give you some ideas on how to come up with something great.
Next comes your logo, colour scheme, and any other branding such as your social media images. With these, you can then think about what you want your blog to look like. I’d recommend using WordPress and going the self-hosted route is always the best option. When hosting with us, we can make the set-up fast and easy with our one-click installer.
Lastly, once you have everything set up. Be consistent with your content. Work out what times of day are best to post your content and remember to talk about your posts on your social media to get those visitors coming.
Extra tip – It’s always a good idea to sign up to as many social media platforms in your blog name as you can. Even if you don’t want to use them right away, it means you are futureproofed and no one else can get them. Let’s just say it’s the best thing you can do for your overall brand.
