31 Actionable Steps You Need To Take In Your First Month Blogging

Blog Traffic Bonus Guide (prequel to Traffic Transformation: 21 Strategies I Used to Go from 17K to 400K+ Page Views in 10 Months)


Hosting – SiteGround

This blog is hosted with SiteGround and I got my domain name from them as well. I really recommend them.

*Want to learn how to start a professional blog for profit, then check out my tutorial here!

Theme – Extra from Elegant Themes 

I love the themes from Elegant Themes . I started with Divi and now use Extra, but really you cannot go wrong with either of them. They have fantastic drag-and-drop functionality, loads of different personalization options and technical support, which is invaluable.

Site Graphics – Canva

All my site graphics are made on Canva. It’s crazy easy to use and they have templates for all the different social media platforms! Plus it’s FREE!

Blog Photos – Haute Stock

I’ve actually done a post reviewing Haute Stock which explains exactly why I love their images, well worth a read if you are umming and ahhing over whether you should get a membership or not. The photos are just stunning and crisp, so if you’re an awful photographer like me, your blog photos can still look professional!

Email Service Provider: Mailerlite  and ConvertKit

I only recommend two email service providers Mailerlite  and ConvertKit.

I have used both of them and they both have extremely similar features. I would suggest using Mailerlite until your blog is making a regular $1,000+ per month because it’s free up to 1,000 subscribers. Then consider ConvertKit once you have a regular income as ConvertKit cost $29 per month up to 1,000 subscribers.

Pinterest Scheduling: Tailwind and BoardBooster

I know everyone’s always asking whether they should get Tailwind or Boardbooster for Pinterest scheduling. Personally I use BoardBooster to schedule my group board stuff and Tailwind to schedule repins of other people’s content. If I could only use one I would choose BoardBooster, it’s tricky to set up but well worth it once you’ve done that!

If your not sure which one would be best for you then, luckily, if you sign up with one of my links you get a free trial:

Instagram Scheduling: Later 

Later is free for up to 30 posts per social media account per month, I can schedule an Instagram post for every day of the month in one sitting. Saving me loads of time for other blogging tasks!

Top tip, make sure you get the email bundle as well because that is invaluable!
