Useful Blogs for New Bloggers

May 26th, 2014

If you’re a new writer, one of the best things you can do to promote your work is start your own blog. It’s free, easy and gives you the perfect opportunity to get some feedback on your writing. It’s also a great way to keep up your motivation once you have a few followers. You’ll be amazed how much more you write when you know you have an audience!

But where do you start? Well, the most popular options for bloggers are WordPress and Blogger and both come with some fairly self-explanatory tutorials to help you get set up. We’ve also rounded up a few of our favourite blogs to help you avoid some of the common pitfalls of new bloggers.

Helpful Blogger Tips – This one is just for Blogger users and it covers some of the more technical parts of blogging. If you’re having trouble with links, formatting or customising your blog’s design then you’ll probably find the answer in their “tutorials” section.

Mastering WordPress – This step-by-step guide is a similar tool but for WordPress users. This explains some of the extra features that come with a WordPress blog that might not be immediately obvious to new users.

Blogging Tips – An excellent resource for tips on content, layout, increasing your readership and just about anything else you can think of. If you have a question, you’re bound to find the answer in one of their articles.

Ten Embarrassing Mistakes I Made as a Beginner Blogger – A cautionary tale from an experienced blogger. Read and take note to avoid making the same mistakes!

These are just a few blogs to get you started, but there are hundreds of others out there. Remember that all bloggers started out where you are now, and most of them are more than happy to share their words of wisdom. Blogging is a great opportunity to connect with other writers and even make some new friends, so if you aren’t part of the blogging community then you’re missing out. You have nothing to lose by having a go, and you might even learn something!
