Start here if you’ve been looking forward to building your dream blog or for that matter you’ve been contemplating about starting a blog but didn’t know where to start.

I’ve got a free course that you can enroll in for free called the All-In-One Blogging Course. I’ve called it the all in one blogging course because I’ve designed it for beginning bloggers (wanting to start a blog), intermediate bloggers (that want to promote and grow their blog) or advanced bloggers (that want to learn how to monetize their blog). I’m really looking for your help to provide feedback on this course, so I hope that you’ll enroll and let me know what you think.
The thing that I exceptionally like to promote with this course is learning how to leverage the power of Pinterest to grow your blog.
If you’ve been contemplating to start your blog, I’d recommend getting started with Bluehost which cost slightly less than SiteGround and you could always transfer it down the road if you’d like to continue blogging. The average cost (without the discount) to host is normally $10/month. However, there are usually on-going discounted promotions that average $3.00/month to around $7.00 or less.
In addition, I like to concentrate on ways for you to improve your blog’s traffic with the use of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Without the use of SEO you’re not fully utilizing traffic which could be coming to your blog.
I’ve created this post, because I’m updating my homepage so that it has a better flow for all of you to navigate your way around my website. Pro-Tip: It shouldn’t be hard for your users to find answers to the questions that they’re seeking. Also in terms of monetizing your website, you want to have your website set up so that it drives your users through your sales funnel.
In this particular case, the sales funnel is the Host to Start a Blog for Beginner’s book that I’m in the process of writing. I’ve signed up for a course called The Brilliant Blog Accelerator and one of the biggest pieces of advice I’ve thus gotten out of the course is to take your time. I can’t stress that enough. Because making a blog is a continual process of self-examining your blog and critically looking at it to see if your design needs some improvement in it’s layout or content.
Not to mention that many six figure bloggers will advise you that you shouldn’t have too much information on your home page so I’m trying to whittle it down and rearrange some of the material.
If you’ve been wanting to set up a blog, it’s not relatively that hard, but it does require some careful planning. Getting it set up is a two-part process of 1) Determining your host provider and 2) How to setup WordPress, Beginning to use WordPress for the 1st time to begin creating your content (posts, pages, your theme, etc.).
Building your Dream blog
Still not sure where you should start? If that’s the case please click on the image below to enroll in my free All In One Blogging Course. There I walk you through the steps of setting up your blog from beginning to end.
Once you’ve got your blog all set up, I’d highly recommend that you check out Suzi’s free blogging course at Start A Mom Blog called 11 Steps to Start a Money Making in 2021 The Right Way. This is the same course that I signed up for when I first started blogging that gives you a very good blog plan to cover the first 12 months of your blogging journey.
Maintaining a blog is a lot of work that if you want to continue getting traffic requires a constant effort to provide quality content and work on improving your SEO. If you’ve correctly incorporated SEO into your routine you’ll still be able to get traffic by writing a minimum of two posts per month. Otherwise, you’ll need to produce content on a more frequent basis. I would highly recommend choosing the SEO path so that you can take the additional time to promote your blog with fresh new pins to promote your posts.
