22 Things to do as a Complete Newbie Blogger!


Last night I managed to talk my youngest brother into starting his own blog and low and behold his first ever blog with BlogSpot The Bloginator. Since he’s a totally newbie to the world of blogging I thought it would only be too sensible to start him off with BlogSpot.

He has much, much to learn but with support from his blogger bro I’m sure he’ll do just fine.

So today’s post is for anyone else out there looking for start blogging on a shoestring with the most of basic tools available to them. Here are my top 22 things to do as a complete newbie blogger.

1. Learn from other more successful bloggers in the same or related niche as yours.

2. Concentrate on writing unique and interesting content for your blog.

3. Don’t copy or recreate what other blogger’s have created on their blogs.

4. Get your own domain name.

5. Upload your own Favicon.

6. Read other blogs that interest you and comment on them appropriately.

7. If you’re starting with Blogger, get familiarised with WordPress for the future.

8. Don’t put your heart in making money from blogging for at least 12 months…

9. Invite your social friends and families to read your posts and comment on them with their thoughts.

10. Add interesting photos or videos to your blog now and again.

11. Learn the art of internet marketing and how it can help drive traffic to your blog!

12. Create a Facebook fan page for your blog.

13 Get on Twitter.

14. Learn about social network marketing for your blog.

15. Learn about basic SEO

16. Submit your blog to the search engines using Submit Express.

17. Submit your blog to blog directories.

18. Get familiar with using the back end features on Blogger.

19. Ask others for help and assistance.

20. Join online chat forums.

21. Learn the importance of RSS and its purpose.

22. Get on YouTube and post your videos.

The one best piece of advice is off course to blog about topics and subjects you’re truly passionate about. If you can share your opinion, tips, suggestions, interesting resources then you’re on a good start and you’ll always have something worth writing about, the best of luck.

      Devie,

      Thanks for your comment and yes I certainly agree with you. One of the things that many bloggers is the lack of commitment and dedication and I do believe that if you’re too use to living the easy life and expecting things to happen or fall into your lap you simply can’t succeed. Blogging demands plenty but it can also reward plenty.

      Fabrizio
