Blogging Resources

DreamHost& Wordpress

TO START

Use the link to sign up with DreamHost. They will direct you to WordPress. Both offer different options, great resources online, and chat assistance for tech support.

Next select a theme. A theme is a template used to assist with the layout of your website/blog. WordPress offers a host of themes to choose from.

Marketing

VistaPrint is awesome and cost effective for marketing materials. I have trusted their service since 2011. I have created tees, hats, banners, and business cards to name a few.

TIPS

Encourage interaction.Comment on other blogs, I think it could boast your SEO, and drive traffic. 

Include your blog link in your email signature. Speaking of which, you can get a professional email via DreamHost.

Also, offer to guest blog. As well as, launch blog contest. I will be having one soon. My one year anniversary is coming up. I will have a small giveaway. 

Connect with other bloggers, well try to, some will not be receptive, so engage with those that engage with you (shrug). I recently found a few bloggers that understand the value of networking, as well as how it works. Belle’s Toys Chest and  Happy Hour Intimate Essentials.

Host a blog carnival. A blog carnival is when a blog owner invites other bloggers to participate by writing on the same topic and linking back to their site. I participated in my first one the Summer100 blog challenge, hosted by talented bloggers Pretty Pink Lotus Bud and Isabella. Also, I really enjoyed meeting the exceptional writer May More.

Recently, I joined one on Twitter, Food For Thought Friday. F4TF is awesome because it’s hosted weekly. 

It’s great to communicate with folks that have the same goal. We can help each other and in turn help our audience.

Are you Shadow Banned?

Shadow banning is the act of making a person’s post visible only to the user who created it.  May More wrote an informative piece on shadow banning

  1. Thanks so much for the mention – you may also enjoy wicked Wednesday – this gives you a weekly prompt and you write a post which includes it. I sometimes write fiction but you don’t have to – this week the prompt is lifestyle so you could write about yours or a lifestyle you wish you had – kinda thing. The linky thing is open from yesterday until friday. I usually try and post mine on tuesday or wed. Some people who enter are generous about checking out your blog too
