Do you feel a bit lost as a newbie blogger with zero experience?
I have been there.
10 years ago, I did not know what blogging was, or, meant. I had no clue how to blog. My mentor seemed as evasive as Bigfoot. Bad news. So I had to learn on my own how to blog with zero experience. Not too fun at first but eventually I discovered how learning from others and from my own experience put me on the blogging straight and narrow. Sweet journey. A bit bumpy at times.
Let’s dive in.
Buy Your Domain and Hosting
One thing you need to do is to buy your domain and hosting. Own your online real estate. Own your blog. Own your brand. Monetize effectively. Access a global support community of WordPress dot org users. Never go the free platform route unless you plan to be an amateur blogger for your career. If you have any desire to blog pro, down the road, or to reach a decent-sized audience, blog on your own blog. Buy your domain and hosting.

Ample fears arise for newbie bloggers. Nobody immunizes themselves from these energies. We all need to face, feel and release fears in order to become successful.
