(Please note that this post may contain affiliate links and ads, please read full disclosure here.)
Are you wanting to start a blog? It can be overwhelming trying to figure out what you need to do to start your own blog. There is more to it than just jumping in and starting to write about topics you like. You have to figure out your niche (Main topic) and who your audience is. It is a lot of work but not totally impossible. Keep in mind I will continue to add links to this list that I have found helpful.
I have put this page together to share with you resources to use to start your own blog. I will have courses I have used and loved to narrow down on my niche and what I needed to get started. There are so many awesome women out there that have a blog specifically about starting a blog. Which I will list the few that I have used to get information to get my blog where it is today.
When I first started my blog I had like 4 topics I wanted to write about. I thought I was going to make a killing becoming a lifestyle blog. Boy, was I wrong even though I had topics to write about my blog was all over the place. I struggled for a while before I realized that I needed to niche down and even once I niched down I needed to figure out who my target audience was.
Let’s get into the resources for you to use.
