There are many different reasons why people start blogging. Some use a blog as a means to earn an income, others use a blog to chronicle a personal journey through some part of life. Whatever your reasons are, here is a few tips to help you get your blog started off right. The resources have links for the Fresno area if you need more help.
Before starting a blog, you will need to decide exactly what you are going to blog about. If you are using a blog as a means to earn an income, what is your particular niche? Research your niche, and narrow it down. This will optimize your blog for the search engines. To chronicle a personal journey, you will also need to decide what you are writing about. Are you going to write about a trip? Maybe you will write about various meaningful experiences in your life.
Even when creating a blog for personal reasons, it can still be used as a marketing tool for your business. Market your business in the sidebar, and in your bio of each post.
