HOW TO: Create A Blog If You Don't Already Have One

Hello bloggers! It's Noor! Someone in the comments asked for a post on how to start a blog if you don't already have one so here are some quick tips on how you can do that!



1. Actually create the blog
So, go to Blogger (BBK's go to blogging site) and hit that "Create Blog" button! Okay, now how do I pick a name? Look around! Blog names are everywhere, just think.

Good blog name ideas:

Classic Melodies
Minty Perfections
Sweet Stories

Now, for your blog URL. PLEASEEEE don't make the mistake I did and make it something really stupid like me: wonderkid22.blogspot.com.

2. Write your first post
Try doing an introduction post! Maybe something like "20 Facts About Me" or "All About Me!". Those kinds of posts are great for a first post. Or you could take it a different way and start out with something totally random like I did.

Check out this guest post I did on 5 Tips For Creating A Blog Post.

3. Promote it!
Go ahead and hit that publish button (after looking over it first) and yay! But readers don't just come flowing in the minute you hit the publish button, you have to find them.

Go find some new blogs (check out the links on our sidebar, we have some pretty cool people up there.) and comment! Be sure to leave your link also so people can find you.

Don't go and straight up promote. Say something nice about their blog and then you can say something like "Hey I'm a new blogger! Would you mind checking out my blog? It would mean a lot to me!" For more tips on commenting, check out my post here!


Alrighty, that's all for today! But if you EVER have any other questions, send me an email at rnoor2004@gmail.com or let me know in the comments below!!

Thanks for reading,
Noor
