    These are pretty good tips for just starting out bloggers. Though I would say if your goal is to start a blog as a business, it’s essential to hire a graphic designer who can design your logo. Branding is important and it’s much harder later to re-do your look.

    Great tips for beginners. I wish I had read this when we started our blog! The SEO stuff too is so vital. Our numbers jumped drastically once we got a better handle of the SEO process.

    Thanks for this list! I’ve done a few of them but it’s always a good reminder for other things that I need to follow up on. Working on the SEO and Pinterest nowadays.

    I remember reading so many of these posts before i began blogging. At that stage, even each of these simple steps seemed so overwhelming. But looking back, its all as incredibly simple as it appears. Everything is so user-friendly and video instructions really help.

    As a blogger trying (and so far failing) to move my blog from WordPress to an official domain I found this really helpful and interesting. I like the idea of offering a gift to people signing up to emails- I will take this on board!

    Great tips for beginners! However I think SEO is so important if people want to turn their blog into a business that it could have it’s own category!

    Great tips! Blogging is such a learning curve, I have absorbed as much as I can in my two + years of blogging 🙂 I use blogger and have always enjoyed it & found it easy to use. Polly

    This is perfect! I recently moved to a self hosted domain with Siteground and so far really satisfied with their service. I still have to redirect my old domain for SEO purposes so your tips are great. Keep going!

    This post clearly has a lot of valuable info! Of course, in this stage of my blogging life, it’s absolutely terrifying and somewhat overwhelming. I had no idea there was so much to learn. I will be back for this when the set up officially begins. Thanks again!

    Took me two days just to find a reliable resource just like this and I commend you for that. Anyways, are there some fees in maintaining a blog?
