If you’ve decided to start a blog, you’ve come to the right place! I’m a fairly new blogger (now in my 9th month of blogging), and I want to share with you everything I’ve learned about how to start a profitable blog.
There are tons of people out there who will say it only takes 5 minutes to start a blog, but they’re not actually talking about how to start a blog, they’re talking about how to set up your hosting (which they get a kick-back from).
Starting a blog takes lots of hard work and lots of time. But, if you really want to make it happen, it’s totally possible… and actually a little easier than you might think.

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing with you how to start a blog that will actually make you money.
I know how overwhelming it can be when you’re just starting out (I was just there), so I’ll break it all down and help you make starting your blog as easy as possible.
Instead of writing just one post that skims the surface, I’ll be writing a super in-depth series that covers everything you need to know before launching your blog… and some things you need to know after.
Here are all of the topics I’ll be covering in the series:
- First Things First
- Deciding Your Niche
- Monetization Strategies
- Is Blogging Right for You?
- Finding Your Style
- Creating Goals for Your Blog
- How to Set Up Hosting
- How to Install WordPress
- Setting Up Your Blog in WordPress
- SEO and Analytics
- Email Platforms
- Social Media
- How to Set Up a “Coming Soon” Page
- The Main Pages Your Blog Needs
- Writing and Formatting Posts
- Adding Photos to Your Blog
- How to Create Graphics
Launching Your Blog: The Final Steps
- A Final Review
- Planning Ahead
- Launching Your Blog!
After the Launch: What’s Next?

One Last Note
Phew… that’s a lot! I’ll be working hard on getting these posts out to you over the next few weeks.
Please note that some of the topics may change slightly. I may add some stuff and move other stuff around, so if there’s something you’d like to see covered, just send me an email.
I have seriously loved launching my blog and I can’t say enough how wonderful it is to have something completely your own that you control and that makes you money. It’s why I can’t wait to dive in and share everything I know so that you can start your own blogging journey.
I’m so excited to see the blog that you create!
