Welcome to our 4th session in the So You Want to Blog series! Just joining us? No worries. Let’s get you caught up. This series is mainly for the newbie blogger, and everyone who has been wanting to start a blog, but doesn’t know how to go about it. In this series, my aim is to ginger you to get started, and sharing the things I’ve learned that I think you should know at this point. Sure, you may be already savvy in these things, but I’m sure you could still learn a thing or two!
In Week 1, you got the extra ginger you needed to get started. In Week 2, we talked about choosing the best blogging platform for you. I believe we are ready to move on to the main, the main, blogging itself.
You know what you want to blog about- pick anything, how does the spirit lead? My first post on this blog was so creatively titled ‘First Post’, haha, so no pressure. I’m going to leave that bit to you. It’s your blog remember?

For the next couple Wednesdays, we are here to demystify the process with the inspiration, encouragement, and information you need to start your very own blog. If you’ve been thinking about starting, if you’re a newbie to blogging, you’ll learn more than a thing or two if you stick around 🙂
I’ve been a lazy blogger, I hope y’all didn’t notice. *crickets*
I’m very grateful to Ms. Cherese of Afrophire, and Zeena of LifeofThecollegeGraduate for nominating me on their blogs for the Sunshine and Shine On Awards respectively! Zeena is a fashion & lifestyle blogger, and Cherese blogs about hair, food, DIY, travel and more importantly, living on the sunny positive side of life 🙂 Thanks a lot ladies, this means a lot to me! I’ve been really lazy about blogging lately, I’m so sorry I couldn’t get to this sooner. Thank you 🙂 🙂
