Blogging Success

Blogger TipsHow often do we run into the same old tips blog post? A quick Google search yields thousands of blogs with instructions for how to improve your diet, fix relationship problems, or any other issue under the sun. However, whether it’s a blog about cooking, traveling, or relationship advice, most of these tips posts offer the same vague, mundane advice. Let’s be real: being told to live in the moment” never really helped anyone.

The easy path to my task would have been to strip out the entire Blogger template and add Bootstrap in its place as some of these template providers have done. But, if you read my Best Blogger Templates article you know that I am a stickler for keeping Google Blogger as pure to its original intent of a dynamic layout and user substitution of design elements vs a copy-paste of some WordPress or other template like Bootstrap and just getting it to work.

Personally, I use iPage (for my blog domain and hosting), and I’ve got nothing but good things to say about it. It’s probably one of the cheapest (less than $2.50 per month) hosting providers out there. A domain name will cost around $10-15 a year, but with iPage they throw that in for free :). Big smiles for that! They’re the providers I use for all of my blogs, including the one you’re reading right now.

As a new blogger i have learned that consistant posting, monitoring social media and brainstorming are not an easy thing to juggle, especially with working a full time job and going to school. I am getting better at planning but this post has helped me tremendously thank you for writing this and for being an inspiration. I look forward to reading more posts from you!

Blogging is not like a recipe where you add this ingredient, then this ingredient, mix it all together and out pops the cake in the picture, every time. The setting up of the website is pretty straightforward but once you’ve got that part done, you can go in all kinds of directions and be successful (whatever that means to you) or not so successful.
