On my How to Start your own Blog page I discuss how much work goes into just the initial set up of your blog. Everything from choosing a name, to hosting, to themes, to widgets – I feel ya, it’s all complicated at first. But rest assured, those problems get much easier and you’ll soon develop more things to work through and then those will get easier.
Like riding a bike – just takes training wheels for a little bit and next thing you know you’re popping wheelies with no hands.
When I first ventured into the unknown that is blogging, I had a word document that was pages upon pages long full of blog tips. I also had about 10 Pinterest boards solely related to different pieces of the blogging spectrum.
I was finding that I had some great tips from various places, but if I wasn’t quite ready to implement them on my blog I would lose it in the sea that is my computer. And that’s valuable shiz, I don’t wanna lose that.
I also don’t want that to happen to you, too. So here we are and here is a round-up of my
Best blogging resources all in one easy to find place.
Genesis Framework from Studio Press
I currently use the Genesis framework for my blog and couldn’t be happier with it. Studio Press does a fantastic job explaining what the Genesis framework is so I’ll just leave that to them.
I am currently using the “travel pretty” theme from Pretty Darn Cute Designs. This was my second theme in about a month or month and a half time span. I tried my best to make the first one work, but I didn’t like it. I’ve been so much happier with this theme and feel that my blog has a cohesive look that I am proud of.
Free 5-day Blogging Course
I started my blog education with Heather and Pete’s 5-day email crash course for blogs. I credit this course for reigniting my desire to blog.
Fast Track Blogging Course
After the 5-day email course, I joined the Fast Track Blogging Course also offered by Heather and Pete. This is a tremendously comprehensive 30-day course covering EVERYTHING you ever wanted to know about blogging. You can click the link to view the curriculum and register if you so desire.
Travel Fast Track Blogging Course
The original fast-track course had me completely hooked on blogging. I knew I wanted my niche to be travel, so enrolling in the 30-day course about all things travel made complete sense.
