Blog quickstart

I’ve learnt from experience that the hardest thing in completing anything is just getting started.

Working out.

Moving to a new place.

Cooking a meal.

Starting a business.

A blog is central to your business success for a number of reasons:

  • Build Trust Online
  • Establish Yourself as an Expert
  • Turn strangers into friends
  • Improve Your SEO
  • People buy from people they know.

Anyway, we’re keeping this quick. Let’s go:

How To Start a Blog

  1. Decide what to blog about.
  2. Choose a blogging platform.
  3. Find a host. (We love Bluehost)!
  4. Pick a domain name. (You can do this through host provider also).
  5. Install WordPress.
  6. Design & use your blog!

Your challenge: Start a blog today.

Commit to 15 minutes each day with the goal of writing 100- 250 words. At the end of a week, you’ll have 500+ words and a blog post.

    Starting a blog seems so daunting, but once you jump into it it becomes really easy. There are so many different platforms you can use as well, which makes blogging easier than ever. It’s such great exposure for your business too. I agree with your choice of bluehost and wordpress, even though I do like Wix as well if you are brand new to blogging. SEO is something I still need to work on a bit – it takes some time and practice. Thanks for an insightful read.
