The Only Guide You'll Need For Choosing The Right Blogging Platform

right blogging platform checklist

At the beginning of 2017, I decided to start my blogging buddy program, a free service that I offer to new bloggers. Because of this service, I get to interact with new bloggers directly and understand the problems they are facing in their blogging journey and provide working solutions to their blogging problems.

Here, I noticed a trend, most bloggers were not happy with the blogging platform they were using!

For months, I wondered why this was happening and then I was able to draw a conclusion; all blogging platforms are not made the same and are not suitable for every blogger. And since all the available advice on the internet on starting a blog is more or less the same, blogger wannabe(s) that don't know much about blogging start to think that the only way to start a blog, and make it profitable is by following a set of standards that everyone else seems to be following.

Today, let me debunk this myth for you. And help you decide on your own, (after comparing all blogging platforms together) that which one will best suit your blogging and/or business interests so that you can save yourself a sorry series of unfortunate events, after finding out the drawbacks of the platform you chose and then feel stuck and overwhelmed — wanting to give up blogging before you even get comfortable with it.

5 Steps To A Well Structured Blog Post

well structured blog post

Writing blog posts can seem to be a daunting task, especially If you're a new blogger. I've been blogging for almost nine months now, but even before I began writing a single blog post, I was already reading popular blogs such as Problogger, Quicksprout and Social Media Examiner to my advantage.

My decision to start a blog was very well informed. For you, that may or may not be the case. Maybe you've just recently stumbled upon this whole 'blogging as a career' thing, or maybe you just want to try it out in your free time.

Your reason for wanting to start your own blog can be anything. But I'm making an assumption here, for the focus of this post, I'm going to assume:

  • You want to start a blog or already have a blog.
  • You are ready to write your first blog post or are looking to improve the overall quality of your blog post.
  • You want to start in the right direction and set up your blog for success. 
  • You wish to be able to earn part-time/full-time with your blog or get into professional blogging, that is, make blogging your career. 

For any of the mentioned (above) points, you'll need to be able to write well, you will have to write in a way that you are able to convince your readers about your knowledge of the subject in question so that they can trust your views and opinions. 

And for this, you need to be able to write high-quality blog posts, and while a lot of things together make a high-quality blog post there is this one characteristic that is a must, all high-quality blog posts are well structured and have a good flow to them.

It's here, the holiday season and I've put in a lot of effort to compile this gift guide especially for all of us bloggers and creative business owners out there.

If you've read my previous post about how I fell in love with Etsy, then you'll know I love shopping on Etsy because it is that one platform which truly cares for us "bloggers" and creative business owners.

Do you know why? Because Etsy is made of such small business owners, bloggers, creative business owners, etc.

What is the most difficult obstacle that you as a new blogger face?
