I have so many topics to cover about better blogging, so so many. I’ve been working to increase my posts about blogging tips but as any blogger knows, the topic struggle is real. Blogging, when treated like a job (post here), requires a schedule. So moving forward, I’m going to schedule my blogging tips into a one-time slot and stick to it. You can expect one post a week related to the topic of blogging. The posts will be tips, motivation, tools I use, growth strategy, etc. I have tons of complex topics I want to talk about but before we can get to those we need to cover a few basics. So, Blogging 101 starts now folks.

A few weeks ago I had a social media meltdown. yup, you read that correctly. A complete social media meltdown. It just hit me smack in the face, I hate social media. What? Not me, I love Instagram, I blog, I run a social media marketing company. What is happening right now? But I’m telling the truth.
How do I grow my blog? and How do I make money blogging? These are the most asked questions I receive. There is no exact answer to these questions but I can give you some tips to get you on a good path of what will work for you personally. For this post, I’m going to give you a few tools I use to grow my blog authentically.
First things first, let’s clear the air. I’m not the world’s greatest blogger, obviously. My blog isn’t super duper popular and I’m not an internet sensation. At least not today, check back tomorrow because well shoot you just never know what kind of fame can hit overnight people. For now, I’m just a blogger who happens to work in the area of social media marketing for small business. Many of the practices I use for small business relate right back to blogging on some level of another. I don’t really believe in overnight growth either, I think blogging requires dedication, strategy, and patience to achieve growth. There are tools, tips, and tricks that can be used to get you on the path to successful growth and that is what I plan to talk to you about each week.
Here is a sneak peek into what topics I’ll be covering. I’m starting from the ground up with “how to start a blog” and ending up deep in SEO. Hang tight!
- What to know before you start a blog
- How to start a blog off the right way
- How to start a fashion or lifestyle blog
- Finding your niche
- Choosing a great theme (not just any old theme)
- Building your Editorial Calendar
- Content Creation
- Image Optimization
- Authentic Social Media Engagement and Why it Matters
- SEO and Why you need to care about it
You would be surprised how many beautiful blogs are an SEO mess. My goal is to outline the steps so anyone can start a blog off like a boss. For those of you who are already bloggers, I’m going to help you clean your blog up or put you on the right track to having a professional fix it for you.
