I waited so long to start this blog. I remember when the big bloggers (Money Saving Mom, Living Well Spending Less, I am That Lady – Lauren Greutman, (who lives close to me by the way) first came on the scene. I read everything on their blogs and said to myself, I can do that, I love to write and I love to share with others. Then I waited. And I waited. Years passed me by. My children were young and very busy at the time. Excuse after excuse. Until 2017, I decided that I had waited long enough and now here we are!
So I had no idea where to even start finding information on how to start blogging for beginners. I headed to Pinterest, where else do we go when we need ideas? (make sure to follow me on Pinterest)
The Blog by Number course and e-book kept popping up. The videos in the course looked perfect for this non-technical almost 50 year old mom. I cannot just read about something, I need to see it in action. So I jumped on the chance to learn from Suzi Whitford.
How to Start a Blog for Beginners
Now I thought, what the heck can I learn from a young stay at home Mom? I mean, I might have mentioned I am heading towards 50 and I do have three teenagers, one of which is in college. I am heading in the opposite direction of this young stay at home Mom.
Boy, did I learn!
Suzi’s energy just jumps off the screen and the page. Her words bounce right at you! Not only did I devour the e-book, I worked my way through the course as quick as I could. Did I mention I have three teenagers? So it took me a few weeks to get through the whole course, for a few reasons (the first being those teenagers).
I highly recommend reading the WHOLE BOOK before implementing every single strategy Suzi details. And, this is my second reason, she talks about the “shiny object syndrome” on page 8 of the book. I sure did have it. I was like a squirrel chasing every nut. Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, making pin after pin, Tailwind, Amazon Associates. You name it, I tried it.
And then I watched another one of Suzi’s videos. I had wasted precious hours trying to figure out everything myself and lo and behold, Suzi already had a video on it. I could have saved myself countless hours if only I had gone through the whole course before trying to implement everything at once. So make sure to watch every video and work through the whole course.
The videos are amazing! Suzi goes through step by step on how to do everything. EVERYTHING! I have gone back to the videos time and time again to refresh my “old” memory. I have read the book three times so far. Each time, I pick up something new and make a note to try it or to tweak something.
Did I mention the workbook? It comes with a workbook as well!! These amazing spreadsheets will help you dream, set goals and plan.
There are so many extra’s included, such as the workbook, a blog checklist, templates, groups to join and so much more.
It takes time to build a blog. This is the perfect guide for beginners. Yes, you can start it in just a few minutes, but the building process is ongoing. This course and e-book are my go-to every time I have a question. Suzi not only guides the reader through how to start your blog, but also Pinterest and taking great pictures, plugins, themes, how to get blog traffic and affiliate marketing. This course is packed with vaulable and actionable information.
Did I mention how quickly Suzi answers emails? Lightning quick!
I use Siteground for hosting, and hands down it is the best!
The Blog By Number course and e-book should be on the top of every new blogger’s list. The wealth of information is invaluable. Think of having Suzi sitting right next to you, walking you through every step of building your new blog. What an awesome opportunity!
