How My Blog Started
I started blogging because one day earlier this year, I started to feel like I wanted more in my life and something was missing. I started a bulleted journal, which really got my creative juices flowing. I feel like I need a creative outlet and have more to offer the world but I don’t know what that is. Right now, I work Monday through Friday basically 9-5 and it’s not that I don’t like my job or like what I do, I just know that I want more… more time. family, more time for myself. have to travel or fight traffic in the Bay Area, and ultimately more money for financial freedom. I started doing some online research on how to earn money working from home and came across a huge amount of information about blogging and earning extra income with reports from several bloggers giving 6 to 7 numbers. I’m the type of person, once I have an idea in my head I have to get it done and well, I always love to share my stories and experiences, and since I used to make creative mistakes, it just It makes sense to me that blogging is the way to go… and THAT my friends are how my blog started.

Tips for new bloggers
Well, since I still consider myself a New Blogger, I can advise those who just started blogging with 1.) not to give up. I know there’s a lot to learn, from launching an actual website, to getting more traffic, building an e-mail list, learning about affiliate marketing, creating a technical product numbers, posting on social media, etc and can be overwhelming at times, but if blogging is something you really want to do, you’ll find a way to make it work.
I’m still learning, which brings me to my next piece of advice 2.) consider investing in a really good blogging course. I realize there is a lot of FREE information about blogging online, however trying to get to the bottom of this whole blogging world can take you twice as long (sometimes longer) to get you where you are. would like. I learned this the hard way. So, if you’re ready to really take your blog to the next level, I recommend investing in a good blogging course. I’m currently registered for a name called Blogging Blastoff. It’s a 30-day step-by-step plan to build the profitable blog of your dreams. I recommend it. Enrollment takes place monthly. It is self-paced. The customer service is amazing and they respond quickly. Click here to learn more about it. They also have a FREE 5 Days Getting Started Blog Course.
I know the rules say only give one or two pieces of advice, but one more piece that I think is really valuable to know and should go without saying is 3.) Support other bloggers. Overall, the blogging community is supportive, but if you really want to increase your audience, follow and subscribe to other blogs through TwitterInstagram, Facebook, etc. Not only will you be able to gain more followers, but you can also learn a lot from other bloggers.
