Best tools for setting up and writing your first blog post
There are many tools that can help you start your blog, from small hosting services like HostGator to huge blogging platforms like WordPress.
Depending on your budget and experience level, there is a range of what will work for you. I have found that once I had a domain name, it was very easy to set up my site on WordPress.

Writing your first blog post
As a new blogger, it can be challenging to figure out how to write your first blog post.
But don’t worry- today I’m going to break down how you can create a successful blog and how you should start writing about it.
The first thing that you need for blogging is a topic of interest- something that YOU want to talk about.
Think about what topics might be interesting or relevant in your niche so that the content on your blog will appeal more specifically to your target audience.
Once you have settled on a topic, it’s time to get started! It’s best not to obsess over word count when you are starting out because any number will do; whether it’s 200 words or 500 words, if it is well written and contains pertinent information then it doesn’t matter.
Formatting your blog article
Posting about your product on your blog for the first time can be a little nerve-wracking, but these tips should help you get started.
Posting about your product on your blog can be a little nerve-wracking, but if you follow these tips, hopefully, it’ll go smoothly.
The most important thing is to have a topic in mind. Having this will help you come up with specific ideas that are relevant and interesting.
Try not to just focus on the benefits of the product – give some background so readers can better understand why they might want the product too.
Keep it concise, and punchy and always try your best to bring new visitors who may not know about your company’s blog – and therefore not aware of what you sell!
