Well hello there! I’m Kristine.
So you want to start blogging. You want to share your expertise, hobbies, or know-how and, hopefully, make a living doing this blogging thing.
But you have no clue where to start.
You are overwhelmed and feeling defeated before you even begin.
I get it. I was right there with you when I first started years ago!
There’s a crap-load of information out there, some good and some not-so-good (or downright terrible).
But you are in the right place to get no-fluff blogging tutorials, WordPress walkthroughs, and methods to be organized and efficient as a blogger to reach your blogging goals (whatever they may be).
Every website or “blogging guru” has an opinion on how you will succeed as a blogger.
The secret is that while some methods work for many, you won’t know what works for you, your blog, or your audience until you DO IT!
That’s why this is on our homepage:
Don’t let fear or lack of knowledge stop you from creating and launching your blog!
I cringe (and you may as well) at the first blog I created over 5 years ago. All I knew was that I was a stay-at-home-mom trying to find fulfillment outside of motherhood AND support my family at the same time (which includes 2 house rabbits and an elderly cat).
With no clue, no help, and no money, the entire experience was littered with what I now know to be terrible advice, horrid blog post writing, and spending time on things that didn’t actually propel me toward my goals.
As a mom of (now) 2, former project manager, and organization nerd, my desire to help people actually get off on the right foot blogging has lead to what you see here today: Kit Blogs.
This website has evolved over the years (and was rebranded in 2020), as will your website!
Any and all recommendations made on this site are made with transparency and honesty after researching and vetting blogging products, services, tools, and courses (most I personally use or have taken) – I was burned BAD as a new blogger by poor recommendations.
I live, love, and breath the nitty gritty details of blogging so you don’t have to.
Let’s get your blog launched and growing.
The best and most important bits of advice I will give you are:
- Launch that dang website ASAP!
- Your blog is not about YOU, it’s about your reader (100% the biggest mindset shift you must make to succeed)
- Focus on writing amazing content and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) from day 1
- Don’t lose site of your blogging goals by getting tunnel vision about making your website “perfect” (hint: it never will be)
- Don’t focus on wordcount – just be the absolute BEST resource on the internet for whatever you write about
- Be YOU, not a copycat of someone else. Being unique is what will have readers follow you and your voice.
You got this. And I’m here to help.
