This is a question I get asked a lot – How do I build a blog? This is not something that can be answered in one sentence. What people see on my blog has evolved over 15 years. This blog is about 8-years-old. I’ve had many blogs over the year and I have gained a lot of experience throughout the years of my blogging career.
How to Create a Blog Tutorial in 250 Words or Less
Telling someone how to start a blog in 250 words or less might seem a bit unrealistic. I would agree, it’s impossible for me to share EVERYTHING someone might need to know about starting a blog in 250 words or less.
But that’s where this writer community can help each other out! We may not be able to share everything we know in 250 words or less, but we can share ONE major lesson, tip, tool, or technique that we have learned throughout the years with everyone else!
I will share my tip to creating a blog here in this post. I would also like to encourage everyone else to share a piece of blogging wisdom within the comment of this blog post. The mission of Becoming Press is to equip, encourage, and educate; let’s equip, encourage, and educate each other!
How to Create a Blog
I guess my tip is more about how to get people to read your blog. You can easily set up a blog through WordPress or Squarespace. Or you can choose to do a self-hosted blog through a website host. Either way, once you start writing you might find out that it’s difficult to get people to actually read your blog.
When you are starting a blog I recommend being true to yourself in what you are writing, and I also suggest learning whatever it is you can about Search Engine Optimization. I would say “marketing” is weird when you are a blogger, but I also think it is necessary because you are writing for a reason and you want people to read your blog. I do not like marketing at all. But with Search Engine Optimization I can easily get my content seen by people who are actually looking to read a blog post or article that is like the one I have written.
Search Engine Optimization is not all that fun and it can be a bit technical. I think after all these years I still have so much to learn. But I will say that what I have already learned has opened the door to getting new readers to visit my blog.
