How to start a blog – Part One

19th of July will signal the one year mark of in the loop with coco.

It has taken me a while to get to the point where I am and I am not even a little bit close to where I long to be but I will keep pushing because I am a hustler lol.

I have a very big personality as many that know me will tell you,and I started this blog to express my views and keep me out of trouble because sometimes my passion for a certain topic comes off like I want to be a know-it-all or a very violent person lol(I’m not I promise).

So this will be my first post regarding this topic as I have seen many people asking about how to start a blog etc.

It will only be a few tips for now but will definitely  put up more posts as I learn things.

1.Get a WordPress Account – it’s free and easier for migrating over to your own domain.I started with blogger and once I purchased my own domain and started using WordPress I had to start from begin to build my traffic and views :)

2.Invest in your blog – But, invest with the proper people,many people are out to make a quick buck.

– I will be attending a WordPress 101 course that will be hosted by Neil Jansson (A veteran (but not old) in the blogging community) .Credentials are important.

-I also had personalised stationery (blog planner,business card and notebooks)designed for me by the awesome Sunè Parris.

3.Take criticism.Constructive criticism is always good if it is done with a good heart.

And last but not least.

4.Do what you want to do with your blog,write for reasons you want to write not for anyone or anything else.

If you have any more questions let me know in the comment section below and I will do another post with the replies.I am not claiming to be a professional and all views expressed are only what I have learnt over this past year.

peace and love coco
