I have noticed from the comments that some of you have mentioned that you were thinking of, or planned to, or were intending to start your own blog or beauty blog. I also often receive emails asking about how to get started. Well, I thought it would be useful to give you 6 quick tips to get you started and on your way 🙂
If you already have a blog, how did you get started and were you inspired to start one? If you don’t have one, have you thought about starting one? If you have, but aren’t sure how to start, these are for you 😉
1. Don’t just think it, do it! Open a blogging account today!
DO fire up blogger.com or wordpress.com and book your space on the internet. We discussed tips for picking domain and blog names before this so take read and see what others are saying in the comments. Remember, MWS readers are a goldmine of info 🙂 I started blogging on blogger.com before moving to a self-hosted WordPress platform 6 years ago. I personally prefer WordPress as a blogging platform, but that’s only because I’ve been using it for so long. However, on the free platforms, I believe wordpress.com has more restrictions. So I usually direct new bloggers to blogger.com (That said, I haven’t blogged on either in years so please take my advice with a pinch of salt. If in doubt, just open an account on both and see which you feel more comfortable with.)
DON’T be inactive. If you want something, do it. Sitting around isn’t going to get your blog up and running.
