Part of being interesting is sharing your unique story with your following. So don’t pretend to be someone else, its your blog so inject your personality into and make it come alive. I personally don’t like reading posts that don’t contain oomphf.
Adding value is the single most thing that makes any blog highly successful. You need to blog about topics that add value to your readers so that they can share your posts to others and spread your vision. If you’re just there to sell, sell, sell then stop right now because you probably won’t sell anything.
Write amazing, epic content ! If you do this your content will most likely be shared with others because you’re adding value to them.
Keep it Simple
This is where minimalism can be applied to starting any blog, irrespective of its genre. No need to place superfluous advertisements or widgets all over your site. Stick to the basics and remove anything you don’t need. Remove anything that doesn’t add value.
Yes, different people start a blog for different reasons. But if you do decide to start one, have fun with it! I feel that the best blogs out there are by writers who are having fun with it. I enjoy having a blog, and it has turned into a great hobby and business.
If you’re interested in starting a blog, I created a simple tutorial for you to follow that will help you start your own blog for cheap, starting at only $3.95 per month (this is exclusively through my link) for blog hosting. In addition to this very low pricing, you will receive a free website domain ( $15 value) through my Bluehost link if you purchase, at least, 12 months of blog hosting.
Premium Tip: My most valued tip to making money blogging is to be self-hosted (instead of on a free blogging platform). This is the best way to monetize your blog as it allows you to be more professional which can help quite a bit.
That’s it for this free email course on How To Start a WordPress Blog on Bluehost. I trust that you have learnt enough from this valuable course to start your own blog and have a successful blogging journey. I will continue to share more interesting blogging tips with you should I come across any good finds.
