What to Do After you Start a Blog

start a blogWhat to do after you start a blog

You want to start a blog, but have no clue how to go about it.  Then, this book is for you.

You’ve started a blog – now what? It’s just sitting there and no one knows it exists.   Your obsessive stat-checking has led you to believe that no one will ever know it exists.

The daunting task of set up in the first place has left you feeling strained and a bit overwhelmed.  The  process may have taken longer than you’d planned for. 

There may have been technical difficulties that threatened to kill your blog before it even started.

Now that all of that’s over it probably feels a bit anti-climatic.  People are not flocking to your site in droves like you’d hoped.  This book is for you, too!

Start with a system that works

Take lessons from the Problogger, Darren Rowse, himself.  His latest ebook contains lessons he’s learned and insights he’s gained since he first began more than eight years ago.

His new ebook will show you the essential steps to take after you start a blog.  It’s the model he uses for every new one he starts.

With this book you’ll learn how to:

  • Use foundational brainstorming techniques.
  • Create a content plan—and content, of course!
  • Build a social media presence.
  • Create practical quality assurance tools.
  • Set up a publishing process.
  • Master the components of a post.
  • Develop your blog’s ongoing strategy.

Every day comes with a new essential task to complete that will help ensure the success of your new blog.

Who is this book for?

This book is ideal for:

  • Anyone who’s ready to start a blog
  • Anyone who is new to blogging
  • Anyone who wants to create a 2nd or 3rd blog with better results

Don’t wait!   If you buy ProBlogger’s Guide to your First Week of Blogging before May 17, 2011 you’ll get it for just $9.99 – that’s 50% off. You’ll also get an entry into the drawing Problogger is holding – you’ll get a chance to win a Studio Press Theme Package (a prize worth over $850).

So check it and then be sure to let me know how it works out for you.  I can’t wait to hear your success stories!

  1. Wow. Thanks for looking out for your readers KEesha.

  2. I love your assumption that constant stat checking hinders your own vision of your blog as it is completely true. The one bit of advice I can pass on to owners of blog’s is to not dwell so much on stats and to enjoy writing about the subject you cover.

    ‘Stats’ can come later.

    • Hi Jakk, you bring up a really good point. Yes, it’s important to have a ‘big picture’ idea of how your blog is performing statistically, but that shouldn’t distract you from what’s really most important – the content you produce. That comes first. Once you’ve produced some solid content, then it’s time to look for new ways to drive traffic to your site. -Petra

  3. Kiesha,
    Thanks for the information. I just bought the book because I am planning to start a 2nd blog. Great Timing.

    So far the book looks promising and very helpful. I will keep up updated. Again, thanks.

  4. Hey Kiesha,
    Thank you for the information.I guess i was searching for such a thing.

  5. I saw this book earlier this week, Kiesha. I can’t wait to read it. If it’s like his 31 Days to Build a Better Blog (and I’m sure it will be) it’ll be a must-read for new bloggers.

  6. Kiesha,

    I don’t know if Darren released ebooks for bloggers, and they are even two!

    I think Darren is a great blogger and his ebooks are definitely worth it.

    Thank you for the review

  7. Hello Keisha,

    You probably already know I’m going to give your article a solid “thumbs up!”

    Honestly, Keisha, when I see something with your name as the author I know I’m going to find the information enjoyable to read as well as helpful and/or insightful.

    I think it was one of your articles that mentioned an E-book written by Kristi(from Kikolani) and it was great(!) so I’m interested in looking into the book you highlight here…your recommendation is all I need.

  8. thanks a lot, very important, this will assist beginning bloggers on what to do after they have gotten their site online.

  9. Believe it or not I just started a new microsite a few days ago and am trying my hand at affiliate marketing. I am taking what I learned from my own blogging experiences over 2 years to see if I can hasten it’s visibility and growth.

  10. I guess starting is the most difficult thing – if you’ve started your blog, you are half way to your success. planning and choosing the right strategy is very essential and obligatory for being successful.

  11. I already read it, anyway good suggestion for new beginner .

  12. you should explain more but it was pretty helpful i liked it and please do visit my blog it is below

    my blog: saraslog.tumblr.com please visit bye

    • Another very important thing is to be consistent. It may be hard to get traffic in the beginning which should not make one give up and slowly, as time passes, the traffic will surely rise. For example, this is my blog, http://www.techmonk.co.in/. I wasn’t getting many visitors in the beginning. But now it’s going up in traffic count.

  13. Besides the tasks given above, A newbie blogger should start link building. which will help in increasing pagerank. Goolgle gives a much importance to pagerank. This will help in getting high position on search engines like Google. Best of luck.

  14. Respected Sir

    Regards

  15. Thanks for the information, Yes my company has only recently began a blog and I must admit the constant ‘stat-checking’ is tedious!
