I’ve been blogging on this blog for almost 4 years now. It’s been a really slow road for me just because I didn’t/don’t have the time to turn it into a business. I learned little by little how to get my blog out there so that it was a little more than a hobby, but not a huge business. I love where I am right now with my blog, but I still love learning about the business side of blogging too.
There is so much to know!
And luckily there are bloggers who have spelled it out for you. There are ebooks and posts all about learning how to blog, successful blogging tips, and how to make money blogging. So if you’re just starting your blog or are ready to take it to the next level, this is a great place to start.
It can be a little overwhelming if you’re just getting started. But one of the best things about blogging is that it isn’t a competition. Bloggers work together and have to work together to be successful.
One of the best things for me was joining a bunch of blogging support Facebook groups. They can be for sharing social media, sharing sponsored posts, or just to share information. Definitely search for some blogging Facebook groups! Start with a local one. I’m in 3 different groups for Utah bloggers.
I’ve gathered some tips for successful blogging to share with you as a resource. I hope you find it helpful!
I also have a Pinterest Board called Blog Tips and Designs that has tons more tips if you want to follow along!
