Hey there. This is yours truly…Gluten Dude. As you can tell by this website, I’m a pretty avid blogger, as my 650+ blog posts and 35,000+ comments can attest to. There is something so incredibly rewarding about reaching a large audience and truly making a difference within a community. It’s empowering. But it doesn’t come easy.
First, you need to absolutely believe in what you are blogging about. The passion has to be there. Otherwise, you won’t come across as authentic and you’ll never gain an audience. Believe it or not…this is the easy part.
Second, you have to know how to set up a blog.
And how do you set up a blog?
- Register your domain name (i.e. glutendude.com).
- Set up web hosting (the server will your blog will reside).
- Install WordPress on your server.
- Find and pick a blog theme.
- Customize/brand the theme.
- Add your content.
- Launch the blog.
To accomplish the above, you can either hire a web design company to do it ($$$$$) or attempt to do it yourself (@#$%&!). Yeah…neither one is a great option.
Third, once your blog is launched (congrats!), you have to know how to actually be an effective blogger.
And how do you become an effective blogger?
- Write attention-getting headlines/titles.
- Optimize each post for the search engines.
- Format your content for optimization and impact.
- Find images (yes…there are awesome free ones out there that you can use.)
- Encourage your audience to leave comments.
- Keep your plugins updated.
- Monetize your blog (if you desire).
