Blogging Tips For Beginners: Advice From Bloggers
Maureen Gaspari's blogging tips for beginners:
My top blogging tips for beginners are to get to know what your audience wants by engaging with them on social media. Starting a Facebook group for your niche audience is an excellent way to engage with them and receive feedback regarding what they are struggling with.

Janelle Robinson's blogging tips for beginners:
Take your own photos when ever possible. If you are just starting out your blog will come across more authentic when there are less “stock images” on your blog. You don't need a fancy camera either, your phone camera will work just fine. With proper lighting and natural backgrounds you can capture great images for your blog.

Christine Gaudreau's blogging tips for beginners
Keep a schedule and time when you will dedicate only to focusing on your blog. First thing in the morning jot down a plan for the day and try to stick to it as much as possible while fighting the daily distraction we have throughout the day.

Holly Weidman's blogging tips for beginners
Blogging has a learning curve to it. When you start blogging join FB groups for the purpose of learning and getting to know some of the active bloggers. Then ask them to join a small group that you create. 10-15 others is great size for encouraging each other, asking questions, challenging each other and accountability. You will create a very close connection with that group and you will all move ahead faster, together!

Sarah Hunt's blogging tips for beginners
My first tip would be not to overthink things too much — it's okay to just jump in and get started and you can always change things or switch gears later. I spent a lot of time worrying about the best niche/domain/host/theme and now I wish I would have just jumped right in and started gaining real experience sooner. Another tip is to learn how to use Pinterest effectively because it will start bringing traffic to your blog right away if you have a good strategy!

Crystal Lynn's blogging tips for beginners
My #1 Tip for New Bloggers. Content Content Content. A blog is nothing without content. Readers need something to read. Give them lots to read and the readers will show up. The biggest mistake new bloggers make is putting 10-20 blog posts up and expecting thousands of pageviews. I'm not saying it can't happen but it's unlikely. Set a goal of 100 posts and write and post as often as you can until you reach that number then worry about getting on a posting schedule or focusing more time on marketing.
