Where can I start my blog?
There are several platforms in which you can create a blog on; however the most commonly used is WordPress. Although to begin with WordPress may seem hard to get your head around, it’s actually a fairly simple platform to navigate. For beginners to the blogging world there are a number of helpful resources online including videos, which can take you through the steps of setting up a blog on WordPress and other similar platforms.
How do I increase my blogs domain authority?
Domain authority is basically a score out of 100 and measures how trustworthy your site is. Improving your blog’s DA can take some time and the best way of increasing it is by sharing regular content and building your audience. Guest posting on other sites is a great way to bring new readers to your blog and increase your DA. It’s worth keeping an eye out in blogger groups for any guest posting opportunities available.
How can my social channels improve my blog?
One of the main reasons you want to create a blog is to document your interests and share your content with other people. For a new blog in particular, it can be a difficult process attracting readers to your content. Platforms like Twitter and Facebook act as the perfect place to share your content not only with your followers, but also to a wider audience via the use of hashtags. Using relevant hashtags means people with similar interests to you are likely to come across your posts and hopefully end up visiting your blog.
