6 comments on “The Dos and Don’ts of Starting a Blog

  1. Great tips! My blog is fairly new so this was helpful.

    I’m curious about the suggestions under “Work With Other People.” How do you find people to work/collaborate with?

    Thanks!

  2. Hi Liz
    There are various ways to find someone to work with. If you are new the best way is probably by leaving comments on other blogs and forming a relationship with the blogger. I am not sure what your blog is about but best to find a blog that is similar to yours or shares overlapping topics. Then you can suggest to the blogger that you could submit a guest post to their blog. They in return might want to guest post for you. This is a good way to start a relationship, then you can work out how you might be able to work together more going forward. Twitter and Facebook are both good places to enhance those relationships as well.
    Further down the track you might want to co-write an ebook or ecourse with another blogger and then promote the product together. A few people seem to go down that path with great success.
    I worked with a web designer and logo designer at one point. Both were really helpful and saved me a lot of time.

    I would keep an eye open for blogging conferences as well. I haven’t been to any yet but it would be a great idea to get face to face and talk to some other bloggers.
    I have to admit I learnt this lesson the hard way by isolating myself in the beginning. Trying to remedy that situation now.

    I hope this information is helpful.
    Cheers

  4. Great tips. Especially good to remind folks that it’s okay to ask for help, especially on areas you’re not an expert in (webdesign, photo editing, etc…) Blogs are so personal it often feels like we are obliged to do it 100% by ourselves, to never ask for or hire help. But being successful in any field requires you to take stock of strengths and weaknesses and know when to seek external expertise to get the job done at a high quality.
