If you are looking to start a blog, I have a few resources that I use that have really helped me. I have actually read and done more, but these are by far my favorite resources for new bloggers.

Building a Framework
The very first blogging book I ever bought was Building a Framework by Abby Lawson. This is a great book for beginning bloggers, or for bloggers who want to move up to turning their passion into a profitable business. It came so highly recommended by EVERY single blogger I knew and respected. And they were right, totally worth it. Abby does a great job laying out in step-by-step format how to set up your blog and it’s a great general overview on everything blog-related.
Another book I recommend is Standing Out by Jenna LaFevor. I actually won this book at her online launch party another blogger was hosting. It is also a great overview on how to start a blog.
Affiliate Marketing for Bloggers
After I had been blogging a bit, I kept hearing about Affiliate Marketing for Bloggers by Tasha Agruso of Designer Trapped int a Lawyers Body. She’s been a longtime favorite of mine, and this book is key if you want to start making money off affiliate sells. I am still working through this book but can already see a huge difference in click rate. This is a great book for beginners too, it will save you a lot of time later to go ahead and implement these strategies from the get-go. Believe me, haha.
Restore 316 Designs
My lovely new theme is courtesy of Restore 316 Designs. They are another company that came highly recommend by other bloggers. I finally made the switch and my blog looks so much more professional now. I am running “Divine” theme, but they have a great gallery if you want to browse their themes.
So, are you thinking of starting a blog? I’d love to help you get started, just reach out and ask.
Thanks so much for reading and let me know if you have any questions!
