Blogging Tip – 10 Things Bloggers Should Consider

1) You need a great laptop or desktop. You will be on your computer all the time. I use a Mac for everyday and my Chrome book when I travel.

2) You need a fast internet speed

3) You obviously need a domain name. My blogging tip is for you to buy it through Go Daddy.

4) You will need hosting iPage



iPage is cheap and the service is awesome. You can also host multiple sites on the same host.  is fine until your blog gets bigger than I would transfer your blog to Liquid Web. This statement was made prior to me trying iPage until you get several thousand posts you should be fine on iPage.

5) You will need an email service. We use Mad Mimi and love it. You can sign up for FREE. Then it cost money if you have a certain number of subscribers. I never ever pay because I sell space in mine so I make money with every email I send out. I actually make Thousands a year using my email service. I sell ads, eblast, my products and services, and I make connections. You can sign up free by clicking on the link that says mad mimi I would do this TODAY if you have any business at all.  <—— SUPER IMPORTANT and it is EASY to use

6) I would suggest getting a data back up service Carbonite is $5 a month. It’s a secure online backup, where in you can access your files anytime, anywhere.

7) If you are going to be online I would get Lifelock. I can’t tell you how many times people have tried to assume our identity and take our credit! I love life lock it is worth the less than $10 a month.

8) A good camera. I am a Canon girl and I suggest the Canon Rebel with the addition of this lens.  The canon 50mm 1.8 lens it will handle most of your image shooting.

I used it for this picture.

9) Another favorite blogging tip that I want to share is that I am also in love with light box  for taking pictures and this background you can buy the 2×2 vinyl

10) I would also invest in your education I am a huge fan of I love their videos on html, photography, and lightroom. Which reminds me picmonkey is great for free editing but if you are serious you should buy lightroom.

    I’m personally not interested in starting a blog but these are some great tips for someone who is. I also love the pic of the cookies, what a great pic. I recently purchased a new camera and was debating over a Nikon and a Canon. It looks like I should have purchased the Canon cause my pics don’t look that good.

  17. Jody Arbogast says

    I always wanted to be a blogger. I think to be a blogger you got to love people and to learn how to communicate. It’s like your the editor of a newspaper. You have to search, be a speaker . By reading this review, I know it takes time, patience and a lot of heart.

  18. Julie Simpson says

    I want to start a blog but the work attention and dedication it takes is why I think some blogs are not so great. Yours is very thorough and attended to and if I am going to invest the money and time I love that you have a formula to consider before you do.

  19. Janette Polivka says

    The camera you have seems awesome!!! I’m telling you, you’re pics looks so crisp! Would be great for the kiddos or scenery!
