3 Actions Every New Blogger Should Take

Starting a new online blog is an adventure and you never know what could be around the corner. It’s the right time to express and who knows you might land a new place of never-ending freedom!

Did you know that, starting an online business, you don’t have to ask for a day off work? You just take the day of and do whatever you want.  You can work late hours if you want or decide exactly how and where to spend your time.

The adrenaline rush from the thought of freedom and independence is exciting; it can also be a bit daunting as well.

Let’s all take a deep breath, relax, and know that you don’t have to do it all alone. There is nothing wrong with a hint of intimidation as long as you’re planning to do something about it. In the end proactive will pay off.  

As you journey through this new blogging phrase, any new blogger should consider these three actions that must be taken to make the most of your new blogging and online presence.

1. Meet Other Bloggers

Staring a new adventure of blogging can be a little scary endeavor. The best way to succeed is to surround yourself with others that have been there and done that.  Take comfort and have the right attitude going in to make new friends.

Networking with the right bloggers can really carry you to a great level of success.  After all, the old saying is true you who you hang around with. So if you’re hanging around with people that have never succeed more than likely you will too. Build relationships with other bloggers who encourage you to grow, and don’t be afraid to encourage other bloggers along the journey.

2. Find a Community

It’s easy to avoid finding a new community in an envirnoment that is so new and fresh, especially when you have the feeling your doing this all alone. So why don’t you grab a new blogging friend and start the search together. Look for a community with an active blogging group where you can grow, feel comfortable, and challenged in blogging.  Getting plugged into a community early in your blogging phrase will help keep you motivated and challenged as you grow into more of an stronger independent blogger

Join a forum to participate in other blogging opportunities in your new community. Be sure to also keep in touch with off line relationships and visit local networking opportunities.

 

3. Build a Blogging Budget for Success

Freedom as a new blogger means you are the one in control. You as the blogger will decide how much money goes out and is coming in.

Be wise, and start managing your money before it start managing you. Get ahead by budgeting for your blog in the following areas.

  • Domain and Hosting Costs: Before doing anything you have to purchase and afford the domain and hosting costs.  Make sure you plan to budget these two expenses for the entire year.  These two expenses usually can be paid for the entire year upfront which can save you some good money, but do know that each year you will need to renew or pay for them again.
  • Design Work: Many new bloggers will undergo the pain of working through a new blog theme and design. Be prepared to spend a little money to get a good looking site up and running.  Also budget in some future expense for going maintenance and adding some nice plugins.  
    Friendly tip:  Think creatively and maybe even a possible exchange with someone for services.
  • Equipment, Laptop, and Office Space: Planning for big expense for upgrades such as a new laptop, equipment, or even an office space is something that needs to be budgeted for.  Being able to pay for those items with cash instead of trying to finance will help leverage what you can afford and creates a healthy business balance sheet at the end of the year.

Use a simple budget form and start planning today. By the time you plan to fully get started, you’ll be ready to teach others how you’re able to create a new blogging business financially free.

Be smart with blogging actions today and you’ll actually be able to enjoy the results of your hard work later.

    Thanks for the tips. I think starting a blog is still the easy part, maintaining it is the hardest. They say if you survive the first six months of blogging you surpassed the most difficult part. Nice tips for new bloggers.

    Guest blogging has turned out to be quite helpful for building a network. I am starting to dabble with blog postings on outward sites, rather than only on the blog section of my site. I also have discovered how helpful a wordpress blog on the side can be.
