Like starting any other business, it takes loads of confidence to really get going and to attract clientele so that you can make that business successful. This is absolutely no different with starting a blog if you intend to make it successful, helpful and entertaining. I know that when you are first getting started with the whole process of opening up about whatever topic you have chosen to produce content for it can be difficult to write and feel confident about anything you are saying - you may even think twice before sharing your posts with anyone, anywhere despite knowing that getting eyes on your posts is also vital for success. This is exactly why building your confidence as a blogger or online business owner is super important to becoming a pro in your chosen niche and gaining the attention of a devoted audience. Let's discover 4 great ways to start making you more confident about your blogging abilities so that you can share your thoughts and expertise with others through a great blog that you are proud of and potentially add another income to your life.
Lovely day to you and yours! I just had to update you on what has been happening! This is something that has been keeping me up at night and I am so excited to finally be able to share it! I just cannot stop thinking about all the amazing women online in the blogging and influencer world who are just filled with knowledge, experience, splendid tips, advice and motivation. These women and their voices have been shining lights in so many dark moments of my life and their inspiring stories often provided me the drive and encouragement I need in various difficult times of my relationships, motherhood, career, business and blogging journey. The internet is riddled with their awesomeness - you know - their recipes, their arts, crafts, super intelligent ways to save and answers to so many of our problems. In fact, I am now on a mission to gather up and beautifully compile in to a handy eBook the brilliance and beauty of inspiring and wonderful blogging and influencer women around the world so that others can easily access their motivating quotes, thoughts and stories every time a 'picker-upper' is needed! I know I could find all the quotes and stories I need right here on the internet or even write a few myself - but that would not be as much fun or even remotely make the same impact as hearing it from lovely, successful women who submit specifically to be featured in this eBook of life and love and who actively play a part in the creation of its content and energy! As a mommy of 7 daughters I should imagine such a book would be a diamond of a gift for my teens and other ladies all over the world! To read these stories of each climb to success- each witty and proactive journey to exactly where she wanted to be, each beautiful and inspiring story, motto, poem, piece of advice from the brilliant mind of a triumphantly satisfied lady who changed her life through faith and confidence - I simply get chills thinking about it! Would you like to share your thoughts with the world alongside other like-minded and successful women who want to change the lives and empower other women to follow their dreams, work hard, make a plan, stick to it and to not be afraid to step out in confidence even when everyone is telling them not to? I know you have been there too! If this sounds like you and something you would like to put your name to; join our mission by adding your story, your, voice and your unique contribution to this wonderful compilation of total confidence and female intelligence - let me tell you more about what we are up to now!
I sure hope that this week has been progressing well for you. So far, so good on this end - I am keeping very busy at home which is to be expected with a household the size of mine haha. With homeschooling in full swing I do not get much time in the day to work on my blog so I have been up late getting things done and as I watch my stats begin to climb it made me remember when I first got started with this blog and why I chose to build it on wordpress.com.
Over the past several days I have had several friends and family ask me about my experience with blogging so far and what are my suggestions for anyone who is thinking of starting a blog or revamping their current one. I really love when people engage me on this topic because blogging has been a great way for me to meet new friends, share my thoughts and hopefully help or entertain anyone who stumbles upon my little piece of the big internet.
Particularly now as we all hunker down at home waiting for this pandemic to ease away, interest in blogging has spiked and I really encourage anyone considering starting a blog to just get started! There is always room for new content and a new voice on the web so do not be discouraged - the internet is the information headquarters of the world because of bloggers like you and me who simply stop making excuses and start posting.
I have been using WordPress for years for my business websites; my husband is a huge wordpress.org fan and builds websites for clients of his ecommerce and tech business using it. I knew I could get his help setting me up on wordpress.org and he did show me how - but managing my own server and all the rest of the techy things the .org WordPress option required was not how I wanted to spend my time - I wanted to spend my time learning how to create great content, editing my videos and getting familiar with what it takes to make a great blog.
That is when I began to explore wordpress.com and found that it is exactly what I needed for my blog for many reasons. Join me for a quick moment to find out why I have been loving my wordpress.com blogging experience and really encourage new bloggers to check it out.
