I was a bundle of nerves when I first started my blog. Would people actually read what I had to say? Would I be able to grow my site? And there seemed to be so much to learn! Could I really figure it all out? These are the types of fears that hold a lot of people back from blogging. I have had so many people tell me, “I want to start a blog, but…”
They let their fear take over, and they never take that first step toward starting a blog that could positively impact their life in SO many ways.
I am so thankful that I pushed my own fears and nervousness aside and just got started so I could reap the benefits that blogging offers! I’ve gained an incredible creative outlet. I’ve found a community of people who are passionate about the same things I am. I’ve been able to impact people all around the world, and I’ve been able to earn money doing the things that I love… how amazing is that?!
Thankfully I didn’t jump into this journey blindly; I’ve had help from my friend Abby at Just a Girl and Her Blog. Abby and her husband are full time bloggers, and they really have a heart for helping people start and grow their blogs. They recently released the third version of their eBook/eCourse called Building a Framework: The Ultimate Blogging Handbook, which is specifically geared toward helping new bloggers get started.
Building A Framework played a major role in helping me grow my own blog, teaching me things like how to set up the technical elements, how to start and grow my social media channels, how to drive more traffic to my site, work with brands, grow an email list, and so much more! If I had to take the time to figure out all of the different areas of blogging from scratch, my blog certainly wouldn’t be where it is right now. But since I had Building A Framework to guide me each step of the way, I am thrilled to have a thriving blog that is growing more and more each and every day.
If you have ever toyed with the idea of starting a blog, this is your time, and you don’t have to do it alone. Building A Framework can help you learn the best practices for all of the major areas of blogging so you can be confident that you are starting out on the right foot from day one. It takes the guesswork out of getting started and helps you grow a thriving site that can help others, give you a fun creative outlet, connect you with other people who share your passions, and even help you earn an income.
