There was once a girl who had big dreams and wanted to start a blog about holistic wellness and essential oils. She had all the ideas. All the concepts. But she was lost on how to actually start blog. The technical elements scared her. And she wondered how in the world she could possibly make it work or if her friends would support her. That girl? That was me. Maybe it’s you too. But that’s okay. Because I have some tips on blogging for beginners. And I think you will find that with this blogging for beginners guide you also can tackle a blog.
Just Do It
First things first. Just.do.it. Seriously. If you have a dream, make it happen. I think this may be the number one thing that trips people up! The fact that they don’t chase their dreams. If you never chase your dreams then you will never accomplish your dreams. That said, I do get why blogging for beginners can be super overwhelming! And that’s why we find people to help.
Enter The Purple Teacup
I’ve started many blogs in the past using different free programs. I always wondered why no one wanted to read them and quickly gave up. But really, the issue was that I did not understand the technical aspects of blogging. You can be an amazing blogger who never gets found by Google because the technical specifications weren’t correct. And that’s where I needed help – because I had no clue what I was doing! Enter, Hope and The Purple Teacup. She legitimately knows the world of blogging like the back of her hand, AND she has an amazing support community. I could not have gotten my blog going without her and her business. I’ve taken several of her courses, and have enrolled in several others for the future. And I’ve NEVER been disappointed. I’ve taken many many different online courses for blogging and social media, and Hope’s are hands down the best. There is literally no comparison between The Purple Teacup and the rest of the community. The Purple Teacup is the best.
Blogging Boot Camps
Hope has many free resources through her website that I take daily advantage of. But where I grew most was through the paid content. The first class I took through Hope was Blogging Boot Camp. This is her course for anyone who is just starting up their blogs. And I promise you, it is worth every single penny. She literally helped me get from a fairly blank slate inside my head to a fully-functioning blog that was showing up in Google searches. If you are looking for blogging for beginners that takes you from zero to sixty, you want this course. It’s absolutely incredible. Hope also runs Advanced Blogging Boot Camps. I won’t scare you with technicalities, but I will say these are wonderful resources for anyone who has a blog and wants to take it to the next level!
Find Your Niche
You cannot cater to everyone. If you try to, you’ll be disappointed. Pick a group of people you can talk to, and do that well. If you try to address everyone, you’ll make everyone unhappy. Stick with what your small tribe wants. You’ll be happier that way, and your tribe and community will come to love and respect you. This was one of the main issues I had when looking for blogging for beginners resources. I wanted to get as big of a crowd as possible. But the reality is that you simply cannot do that. You have to pick your community and cater to them.
Once you start your blogging, don’t stop. Big dreams are accomplished through small, consistent steps. And that’s what is necessary. You won’t succeed if you give up. But it also does take some hard work. And it’s not that hard. Promise. It’s just showing up consistently and getting the work done. And sometimes that can be hard when there are a zillion other things on our schedule!
Blogging for Beginners Can Seem Overwhelming
But I promise it is very doable. You can chase and accomplish those dreams. You can be a blogger. It simply requires you to take those steps. To reach out, and decide you are going to do it. And when you do, that’s where the magic happens. It’s been such a blessing for me to be able to grow my Young Living Business as an Independent Distributor. And its has been so much fun to be a blogger; it’s been such a journey to learn and grow this blog and the Wellness Adventuring Community! I’d love to hear what dreams you have in the blogging community! What do you want to blog about and why? What are your concerns? What are our dreams? Drop me a comment below!
