Basic Blogging Tips

Follow your heart.. those are the three first words of advice I'll offer to those on the brink of writing their own blog. Just dive in and do it! If you dont start now you never will.
Yes writing a blog is a lot of work, and it takes a lot of time, but the rewards are endless! 
Here are my top 5 tips for those wanting to start. 

1. Come up with your content type 
This is one of the most important steps. You have to decide what you're going to write about and pick something you are passionate about. This is crucial if you want your blog to be a success! Brain storm, write mock posts, and really get this part down.

2. Decide what web host you'll use
Blogger or Wordpress are the two options you have. I use blogger and have no complaints! But choose wisely unless you want to pay the big bucks to have someone transfer your content down the road.

3. Take lots of pics
Pictures are what draws your readers in so before you start blogging make sure you can have great pics!

4. Be real and be yourself 
This can be hard. Dont share every detail of your personal life but also let your readers know that you're a real person. I've shared different vulnerable areas of my life before, and it's not always easy.. but people relate to the struggles you face, so dont be afraid to share some of them.

5. Follow your heart and just start! 
I know there are many out there who dont think they'll ever be able to have a successful blog. That's so wrong! I cant encourage you enough to dive in and do it! It takes patience and time but it will be so worth it.

Do you have any questions for me about starting a blog? I am no where near a pro but I'll answer what I can or ask other fellow bloggers for their thoughts!
