  1. I tried to start a blog this month. I did the blue host, I even paid to get a logo done professionally, whatever it took I was willing to do it. But over 1 weekend I gave up because NO ONE not even the technicians at Bluehost could help me figure out how to get over the DASHBOARD and how to work it so my blog looked presentable. I cancelled everything in a fit of rage and frustration. I am doing this completely alone.

    I still want to do this –___– but I am really discourage. I feel 3 years ago the whole blog setting up was so much more user friendly.

    Any tips or resources that can teach how to use the dashboard.

  2. Youre giving bad advice about google adsense. Google adsense requires that your blog be at least 6 months old before you apply for google adsense. The reason for this is that if you apply too soon, some or most of your traffic might be from bots, who are either scanning your page or trying to deliberately trying to get you banned from google adsense. You dont mention that here and i hope youre not trying to purposely get peoples blogs banned from google adsense…

  3. As I'm considering this, I'm curious. Do I have to show myself online (a photo, who I am etc) to get people to read my blog? Because I have to be honest, I don't want to show myself.

  4. Love the info, Im not totally new but trying to up my online game. Some words you are saying do not register as words to me or I never heard before. Thank you for the great info though 🙂

  5. I have got everything set up on the tech side, website (WordPress/blue host) I’m kinda lost how to start. The template I purchased has demo content and the page is full. I’ve written 5-6 blogs so far. Should I place all articles before publishing the website or delete most of the demo content and just start with one blog at a time? I will release weekly, but just wondered about the content needed to start. Feel if I just launch with 1 article the site will look empty. Thoughts? Thanks!

  6. I’m posting a question here just to hear everybody’s opinion

    The title that I was hoping for for my website was unavailable as a domain name
    So I went with a related domain name

    Should I just settle for that as the title for the blog or is it okay to have a blog title that’s different than the domain name

  7. This is all great info, but where’s some content on actually writing your blog? I’m so new at this, so please be patient….my old school way of thinking is that I should have a few blog posts written before I begin the process of doing the 5 things you share in this video….am I wrong?

  8. Thanks Cathrin for this amazing starter tutorial. Could you please guide further on Google Adsense coz I'm not able to find ads on your website as of now. How should one position ads so as to not make the website cluttered, how to set up google adsense etc. Thanks a lot! 🙂

  9. I’m new to blogging, I’ve never understood what it meant. Like I’m a total beginner! But, I am majoring in creative writing (among other subjects) so I learned that I love to write! It’s so therapeutic. I even took a non credit class just be I love writing so much! However I have no idea where to begin. Btw. I’m writing this comment in the beginning of your video so I’m sure I’ll learn something 😂❤😊🎉

  10. Heyyy, I know it’s a very old video but I’m just starting off my very own blog just as a side hustle as I’m a full time mum and part time bus driver, quick question… should I register my business now? Or wait till I start making money?
