You have read over and over about the benefits of having a blog to promote your business. You finally took the steps to register your domain name, set up your WordPress site and now you are asking yourself, “What Do I Do Now?”
Blogging Tips From A Problogger
Simply having a blog does nothing for you or your business. You have to add content (write something) that people (your potential customers) want to read. Even after many years of blogging, it can be a challenge to find the right topics to appeal to readers and to make the time needed to write weekly posts.
When I started my first blog, I found a website by Darren Rowse called Problogger. It is full of helpful lessons about blogging and how to do so successfully. His series called 31 Days to Build A Better Blog was so popular, he wrote an e-book which covered the daily lessons in detail. I used it to start this site and I still refer to it on a regular basis when creating website content for clients.
Darren has recently released ProBlogger’s Guide to Your First Week of Blogging, which gets you started on the right foot in the crucial first week after starting your blog. It shows new bloggers the ropes–and helps develop solid habits that will last a lifetime. It’s the advice I wish I’d had when I first started.
The ProBlogger’s Guide to Your First Week of Blogging will be useful to anyone who has just started blogging and those of you who are at the beginning of their journey. It will help you to start blogging with solid foundations. Perhaps you are even thinking about starting a 2nd or 3rd site and want to do it better this time around.
ProBlogger’s Guide to Your First Week of Blogging doesn’t teach you the technicalities of setting up or designing a new blog , but it is more for those who want to know what to do once they’ve set up. Experienced bloggers can also use it to release new sites more smoothly.
