How To Do It and Blogging Resources I Recommend

Here are the people and resources that I highly recommend if you are a blogger or want to start a blog, with a little more explanation about how to do it and the resources.

Blog Hosting

You will want to design your blog, get a theme, etc., but getting hosting is the first thing to do: I recommend BlueHost. If you are serious about blogging, I recommend you start with a WordPress (.org) and self-hosted blog.

I recommend you pick a domain name (you can name it your name, or a keyword-rich name related to your topic, or something clever that resonates with your ideal reader) but, whatever you name it, purchase all the variables of that name (e.g. I have yourhomeforgod.com, as well as .net and .org). This is insurance, since then, no one can steal your name–it’s yours! And, your content is yours, as well.

ConvertKit

As a blogger, you need to grow your email listConvertKit is my number one recommendation for an email service provider! Read my testimonial of what ConvertKit did for me here! I am so impressed with their professionalism and their customer service is second to none, which is something you don’t see anymore, so I’ll sing the praises of ConvertKitThey’re the best.

I love how easy it is to make high-converting, beautiful Landing pages on ConvertKit! I love being able to tag and keep track of the interests of individual subscribers, so they get information on what they’re specifically interested in. You won’t be disappointed with ConvertKit

If you’re serious about blogging and planning on making money and growing, start right out with ConvertKit. As with most things, there is a little learning curve, so be prepared. But, they have great documentation and training and help you all the way.

Ivory Mix Images for Your Blog

We live in a visual world! We often don’t even bother to read what’s written, but we remember the images! This is part of your branding! You want to be instantly identifiable and recognizable just by looking at your images! And, you want to stay out of copyright infringement! 

My recommendation, if you want a blog that’s beautiful, up-to-date and classy, is to go to Ivory Mix for professional, beautiful images! I use Ivory Mix for virtually all the images on my blog! There are free options at the beginning. Kayla Butler does amazing work! Check out Ivory Mix!

Katie Hornor, Blogging Successfully, and The Blog Connection 

Katie Hornor at Blogging Successfully, has been the biggest help to me in learning and taking it to the next level! She gives 300%! God used her to focus my message more than anyone. I highly recommend you take her courses, listen to her advice and join The Blog Connection, if you’re a Christian blogger with a message you feel called by God to get out.

Watch her videos, learn from her courses, and apply her advice. That has benefited me enormously, and it was the best decision I made in blogging. Katie combines spiritual wisdom and a heart for God with blogging and business savvy. The Blog Connection has been instrumental in teaching me the specific nuts and bolts of how to build a blog that is both ministry-minded and business minded.
