Have you ever wanted to start your own blog but didn’t know where to begin?
Here are a few tips to keep in mind before you start blogging.
1. Know your target audience. Think about who you want to reach out to. This will also help you discover what content to write about and who will be following your posts. If you have always had a passion for couponing, put it to practice, know where to find everything and want to share it with others, you have an idea my friend! Blogging your idea is easy to get started, but now what? On to my second point…
2. Be consistent. Have you ever gone to a website and looked at the most recent posts and they are from 2 years ago? You don’t want to be that person. Over time your following will decrease and therefore your blog will fizzle. Being consistent with your content is key. Before launching your site, write 10-15 posts and save them to the drafts section so you have a reserve of content. This will keep your followers engaged and help the consistency of your content.
3. Search for programs/content that will help you develop your site. There are some wonderful programs out there to help a newbie get started. First think of a catchy domain name for your site, and purchase it off of sites like www.godaddy.com. Consider a secure hosting site such as HostGator for your domain. Also, blogging is really much easier if you choose to go straight to WordPress. A brand new, non-techy (yes I’m using that word!) person can navigate through the WordPress dashboard.

4. Be YOU! Trying to be like someone else that has a greater following or seems successful in the world of blogging is a mistake. Your audience should feel like they can get the feel for who you are. Be yourself, talk about whats on your mind, create your blog the way YOU want it to look like! Chances are if you are happy with your site and what you are putting out there you are more likely to update it often.
Those are some simple and easy tips to help you get started with your blog. Have fun and heres to a happy blogging experience!
