I just passed my six month milestone of blogging. To tell you the truth it snuck right up on me. I’m the first to admit that I had (and still have) zero clue about what I’m doing, but for fellow guys and gals looking to start their own place on the web here’s a few things I’ve learnt about how to start a blog, when you really have no idea.
Up Is Better Than Perfect
A lot of the time people can get so stuck on their blog looking perfect they never launch. I launched TdM on a Saturday night, a bottle of Verdelho in and I’m pretty sure some of the pages didn’t even work. Point is, your blog is always going to be a work in progress.
I do admit to having the advantage of being a web designer and developer so getting a blog up for me was the easier part, but with so many amazing themes for WordPress around I swear it will be quicker for you to get an amazing blog up than it was for me!

The Secret Bloggers Business course comes in two formats, the BootCamp, an intensive 8 week program that will teach you everything there is to know about how to start a blog, gain readership and work with brands and the Mastermind, a monthly lesson plan that focuses on one key area of blogging and tells you how to nail it!
I signed up for the SBB course just before starting TdM and have turned to it time and time again as the blog has grown. If you’re wanting to start a blog, or wanting more from your current blog, you can find all the answers here.
