Want To Start A Blog? Here's How To Get Started

Blogging is a great hobby. Sometimes it can even turn into more than that and enables people to earn an extra income, even making blogging their careers. It’s a lucrative world to be in, but how do you go about getting started? We all have to start somewhere. Which is why I thought it would be good to introduce some new people to the world of blogging. With my tips and tricks on how to get yourself started.

Find your niche
Finding your niche in the blogging world is important. It enables you to establish exactly what your whole blog and brand will be about for me. It’s possible to blog about a little of everything. But there will always be an underlying subject and style. For me, I like to blog about a few different things, but I have a passion for a healthy lifestyle. So that can dominate from time to time. The main thing is to stick with things you are passionate about and have an interest in. It’s a big mistake to start blogging about something you know nothing about, or have little interest in; you will soon lose heart in your blog that way.


Think of a name
Now you know your niche you need to think of a name. This will be your blogging domain and what you use to advertise your blog. So don’t make any rash decisions on what it will be. Take your time to think about what will work. Once you have an idea, make sure you check the domain and social media handles are all available. The last thing you want is someone else using your name. Try and not stick with something that you may outgrow. For example, a parenting blogger making their name “mom of three”. Of course, I just made that up. But that kind of name would be fine if you know that situation isn’t going to change, it won’t work if that person ends up with a fourth child. I hope that explains what I mean more clearly. Check out websites like http://www.successfulblogging.com for tips.

Make yourself aware of social media
The best part of starting a blog is to familiarise yourself with social media. This will play a huge part in your blogging life. From engaging with followers to advertising your latest blog post. It will be hard at first, but social media requires a lot of effort to get your profiles off the ground. This why sometimes it can be worth your while to consider services from websites like www.getmorefansquickly.com/buy-instagram-followers/. If you are unsure, check out other bloggers who may have shared some tips on how to make more use of social media through your blog.


Set up an email
A great little tip is to set up a separate email for your blog. Many readers may want to get in touch of a post related to them. Or potential brand collaborations could come your way in the form of reviews. Even other advertising opportunities. You won’t want to let those emails get lost in your personal ones.

Finally, you should be ready to start writing. Make sure you take pride in the work you publish and publicise your posts as often as you can. Good luck with your blog.

Things People Believe About Feminists (And Why They're Wrong)

When there is a movement, there is always a counter-movement. It happens in microcosm, a response to the mildest of things. If the general agreement in the populace is that a particular song is the best by a particular artist, a secondary group will appear purely for the purpose of disagreeing, of applying contrarian practices.

Since its birth at the turn of the last century, feminism has had plenty of counter movements. It began with essential basics of human rights, such as the right to vote - and people argued against that. Then it moved onto the lives of women, right through second and third wave feminism.

Given that feminism has been around so long, it’s to be expected that there are opponents to it. It just so happens that in the last decade, those opponents have become more and more vocal - arguing back against a world where Beyonce stands in front of a “feminism” banner and women begin to see work towards a more equal society. Here’s the thing that happens; here are the counter…

Here are some tips to help you out.

Give Them Plenty Of Exercise First of all, it’s important to make sure that your dog gets plenty of exercise. That doesn’t just entail taking them for a walk every now and then - larger dogs will require a long walk of at least an hour twice a day, which is a really significant time commitment and something that you should consider when you’re deciding what sort of dog to adopt. If you don’t have as much time or if your mobility isn’t quite as good, why not go for a smaller dog like a terrier mix or a chihuahua? You’ll still need to make sure that they get out for plenty of exercise but it won’t be as taxing on you.
