Are you trying to find out how to write a great blog post? Great, then grab a cuppa and let’s get started.
First of all a blog post is just an article which appears on a blog. Like this one that you’re reading right now.
It is designed to inform, inspire, educate or entertain it’s readers, or to promote a product or service that you may have or want to recommend.
This particular post is going to be educating you. It is going to be teaching you exactly how to write a great blog post from scratch. You will learn something from it and so I consider it to be educational. I hope it is a little inspirational too though.
A lot of my clients ask me are blogging courses worth it. They tell me that there is a wealth of information for free on YouTube and Google, so why pay for courses.
This is what I tell them…
You get what you pay for. If something is free then it’s very unlikely to provide as much value as something you have to pay for, that’s just common sense really isn’t it?
There will be parts of it, or steps missing, or it won’t tell you the whole method but ask you to upgrade to get the rest of the “necessary” information. Of course, this isn’t true of every free thing you come across on the internet, but I just wanted you to bear it in mind.
Are you wondering how you can include Halloween in your non-Halloween blog and still remain credible?
It’s important for bloggers to keep up with what’s trending on social media and right now people are gearing up for Halloween.
I know it’s not even the end of August yet, but honestly, you have to start promoting your content at least a month before the actual event to give it time to gain traction.
So in a couple of weeks you are going to need something in your blog, Pinterest boards, Facebook page or Instagram posts that talks about Halloween.
Are you drawing a blank as to what to blog about once the Grand-kids go back to school?
I’m not yet a Gran, although many of my blogging friends are, and they have had their blogging activities somewhat curtailed this last 6 weeks or so; because of the school holidays and having to look after the Grand-kids.
Quite a few of them have been saying that they have got out of the swing of it, or that they can’t think what to blog about now that they are about to get their days back.
Wow, can you believe that we are on lesson 6 already? You have done amazingly well keeping up with all the challenges and doing all the hard work that is going to get your blog off to a flying start.

Hello and welcome back for lesson 5 where we are going to be looking at adding those other 5 posts and then telling the world that you exist.

I also need to point out that this blog contains some affiliate links which means that if you click on them and then go on to make a purchase, I will receive a small commission at no cost to you. This is one of the ways that I monetise my blog and I will be showing you how to do this in a later lesson.
Okay, let’s get going with lesson 5
Phew, are you still with me? That was a bit of a task wasn’t it? I’m very impressed with your efforts though, and glad you are still with me after all of that technical stuff.
It gets easier form here so relax and enjoy the ride.
If you missed lessons 1 – 3 you can catch up here:
Hello and welcome back to lesson 3 for new bloggers. It’s nice to have you back and I hope you are ready to start getting serious about your blog now that you have already done so much of the hard work.
As usual, I remind you that this blog contains affiliate links which means that if you click on any of them and then go on to make a purchase i will get paid a small commission at no cost to you. This is one way that I monetise my blog and I will be showing you how to do this in future lessons 🙂
Are you itching to start a blog but don’t know where to begin?
That’s okay, we have all been there. We all had to start somewhere and it’s a bit daunting isn’t it?
This blog is all about helping those over a certain age, to overcome the obstacles associated with technology so that you can share in the fun of blogging and help others along the way too.
I’ll bet you have been reading blogs for years. You have been following bloggers who travel, or those who cook, or those who are bringing up their families.
I’ll bet you have even come across one or two that are by older people. People like you, and me, who have something to say and want to share it with the world.
I hope so. I like to think that we haven’t got to our age and have nothing to say or share with others.
Surely our experiences are worth something? Well I choose to believe so and that is why, about 2 years ago, I decided to start blogging.
I helped people to start new online businesses, and I still do. I shared the benefit of my experiences and offered them tips and hints to make the process much smoother and get them making money quicker.
My most favorite part was writing the blog posts. I loved sharing what I had learned and the tools that I had discovered that would help others achieve their goals quicker, and save them money too.
It was because of this that I decided to make blogging my full time Job. And that is what I now do. I blog for a living. WOW!!! I still can’t quite believe it. It’s the best thing I have ever done, for me and my family.
But enough about me, you can go and find out more about me if you want to by reading the blurb on the right (if you’re on a desktop or at the bottom of this page if you are on a mobile). This is about you. How do you get started blogging?
To make it as simple as possible, I have created “The Ultimate Starter Kit for Bloggers” catchy title eh?
You can get your copy here:
It gives step by step instructions on exactly how to get your blog started, from buying your domain name and hosting service, right through to creating and publishing your first post.
I will be around to answer any questions you might have or help you with anything you get stuck with, you can contact me here.
Good luck and have massive amounts of fun.
