Happy New Year everybody! So glad to see all of you guys back and ready to start the new year. Before I start with the original blog for the first day of the year you guys probably want to know what’s going to happen this month, this full year of the world of blogging. You know me guys right I take each day as it comes if something good comes out of it then you guys are the first ones to know right.
Right guys? …………….guys? Where did you go? ‘Looking out across the audience and all you could see the barman and a goat’ thinking process that came to my head.
New blogger wanting to know how to set up a blog. Also a recap for current bloggers.
Welcome to my Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging every Monday of each week I write about how to improve your websites and how I do it. Mainly I give advice on how certain things work and what doesn’t work but it may workout for you it might not you will never know. As your new or just want a fresh reminder/crash course then here we are; you have come to the right place, the right time for the new year as well. Have you got a notebook and pen to write down or do it bullet journal or check list. However it works for you go for it because everyone is different.
How do you decide a catchy domain name for your blog?
If you have a catchy name already and you tried to come up with other names as well but that one you thought of first has stuck out at you the whole time then stick with it. At the end of the day it’s the one that you will use for the rest of your blogging hobby; what I mean by that is once you start building up your fan base, and your work around the domain name it will get people talking and will help you build your profile up even more.
What websites are free to start out on?
The best way to start first is to take baby steps into blogging world because if you go straight into the deep end and pay for your domain and you work out that this isn’t for you or you haven’t got time your paying like £7.99 amount for something that your not using. Free sites are the best start in this line of hobby because you know that if your busy you don’t have to worry as much.
Sites that are free
– Google +
What niches can you write?
You can decide what ever niche you want to write at the end of the day. You don’t have to follow the trend of your favourite bloggers or YouTubers because at the end of the day; it’s your platform, your blog and your work no one else’s. You can’t copy your favourite YouTuber or blogger to the exact because they have their own way of doing things that might not be helpful or any use to you at all. You have to find your own way of working with the blogging and etc to help you feel comfortable with yourself.
Niches that you can write (a few ideas that I can think off)
– And many more
Research and knowledge?
The best bit when your writing or videoing your videos especially if your out and about and you think hang on a moment this would be a great idea for a blog. Research is good by reading and watching other bloggers or YouTubers to see what they do; just observation purposes, and etc.
Also having the knowledge of what you know to help support your writing as well that will gain your attention of your readers as well. My advice is don’t talk about yourself too much on the blogs and etc. I know these days people do weather they do mean it or they don’t but one day it will come back to bit you.
Start building up your blog space by using social media and how often you do them.
To be able to start up your blog space using social media and how often do you use them? I use Twitter, Instagram and Facebook Page for my blogs and many other things like when I’m going out or something. I like to document them if I don’t have a chance to write them down on my blog I use my Instagram that’s just for my blog that is linked up to my facebook page and my twitter account for my blogs.
It’s just helps to keep on top of things whilst being on the road or I’m aways from my iPad at the time because at the end of the day I may be so exhausted or something I just don’t bother in doing so. Always look for other ways of attracting attention to your audience is a key in life. That’s what I always told myself.
Once you get the flow of what you have in mind for a year or so. How do you know when your on the next level of setting your next goals?
To be able to feel comfortable and confident with your blog work and the amount of audience that you are gaining. You can set yourself a next lot of goals and gradually increase your flow of work that you want to do; that will also increase more of your audience, and where they are in the world.
When is it time to own your domain?
To know when it’s time to own your own domain that you have built up can only work when your ready to. It’s only you that should know within yourself you feel the confident enough to take that step forward. Only you can decide to take that leap of faith not anyone else’s.
