My Tips for How to Start a Blog

Today I want to share something I’ve been working on for a bit behind the scenes, something I truly hope will be useful to those of you who might be curious about blogging. In a nutshell, it’s a resource page designed to help you navigate the basics of how to start a blog! I go over lots of things from registering a domain name to making your blog pretty to improving your photography skills so you can share amazing content. I also tried to pack in tons of links to places where you can do more reading, get inspired, and ultimately get up and running quickly. My biggest piece of blogging advice? If you’re thinking about starting a blog, there is no better time than today! I promise, you can’t wrong if you blog from the heart and share what you love. If you do start a blog or have one already, please leave a comment here with a link so I can pop over and say hi! Click here to get started.

Note: Because I strive to be very open with you guys, I want to make note that the resource page this post links to contains affiliate links, which means I will earn a commission if you make a purchase through those links. This is one way that I earn a living and fund the projects, posts, tutorials and recipes I share here daily. Also, these are all companies, products and/or services I trust and would recommend even without that commission. So, basically, thank you for helping support The Sweetest Occasion! If you find this information helpful, I invite you to please pin the resource page on Pinterest, to help spread the word to others. Thank you! xoxo

You're right about that one, Shrida! But it gets easier and really becomes second nature as you go along. Your blog is looking great! :-)

Thank you soooooo much for this post! I learned a lot! I love writing and being creative but the whole administration side of blogging really frustrates me. I started my blog at the beginning of February and I feel like there is so much to learn - it can be quite overwhelming really!

Thanks again, Joi
