Recently, I was chatting with a friend about how to start a blog. Boy, do I remember what it was like to start my own blog years ago. I spent countless hours trying to figure out the basics like:
- Should I use wordpress or blogger?
- What the heck was hosting and why did I need it?
- And, brainstorming ideas about a name – oh, that one took a long time!
If I had to start over, there’s one thing I wouldn’t spend so much time on: googling EVERY question I had! Instead? I’d learn from other bloggers. Which is why I’m writing more and more posts about blogging (time to pay it forward). You can sign up to stay up on all the blogging tips that I share HERE.
The thing is that google and Pinterest are saturated with posts about blogging. It’s hard to know who to trust and it’s hard to keep from getting overwhelmed. Trust me, I’ve been there. I’ve realized over the years that the best way to learn about blogging is to find bloggers who have had success and who want to teach others how to do it too. Luckily, I know some of these bloggers. The good news? They have FREE resources to help other bloggers like us (woot!).
I put these resources all together in one convenient list so you can skip the late night frustrations and start learning how to blog the smart way.
Did I mention that they’re FREE?! *squeal*
