“What should a blogger do in their first week of blogging to get their blog on the right track?”
I’ve been asked to write on this topic for a while now and while there is no one way to launch a blog I thought I’d jot down a few starting points over the coming weeks.
By no means is it an exhaustive list but I hope it’s helpful for those starting out.
Note: I’m presuming you’ve already set up a blog on a platform, domain and have a template sorted. Some of these tasks will be done by some bloggers before they go live – others after. I guess all I’m suggesting is that they are done early on as one starts blogging. Also note that the order I cover these tips in is not necessarily the order you’ll want to do them in.
Lastly – before I kick this off with the first post – thanks to the many bloggers who have added their own tips to my call for advice to bloggers in their first week. I’ll using some of the comments left on that post in posts on this series in the weeks ahead so feel free to keep adding your advice there.
I’ll update links to each of the posts in this series below (stay tuned for post #1 shortly):
