When I began this journey, I barely knew what a blog was, let alone how to write one. The whole idea of having a blog was very intimidating to me, but learning to Blog is fun and challenging. There are many resources for the novice blogger.
In creating my Blog, I went to Pinterest and searched the site about learning to Blog. Under the heading of learning to Blog, there are so many pins on the subject, it can be overwhelming. The first task that I completed was to take a New Blogger Personality Quiz, this short quiz assesses your personality and your preferences on the web. For myself, the questionnaire revealed that the Blog that would best fit me would be :
Lifestyle/Personal Brand Blog,
Passion Subject Blog,
Broad Niche Blog,
I chose to go with a Lifestyle/Personal Brand Blog. The reason why I chose this topic is the mere fact that I can not narrow my interests to just one issue or subject.
Creating a new Blog
Once you have the type of Blog you want to create, the next step is to find a platform. My best advice is to keep it simple. Two sites that are great for beginners are WordPress or Wix because they are free!. Who doesn’t like free? Once you begin to get the hang of learning to Blog, these sites offer options to upgrade your website where you will be able to make money from the site. How cool is that?
Learning to Blog can be daunting, the beautiful thing about Wix and WordPress is they offer tutorials on how to get started, the rest is up to you. Once you have gained confidence in yourself and your writing, keep learning to Blog because blogs and blogging are always evolving, and it’s best to still be in the know. So, bring your ideas, your passions, and Grandma’s secret recipe and share it with the world.
