22 Resources to Help You Launch Your Blog

Nick Foy’s Resource Guide to Launching Your Blog

22 resources for new bloggers free online course

Yo, what’s up friend? I’m super thankful for you being here today on the Ask Nick Foy Blog.

We’ve been talking a lot lately in the previous posts about how to start and grow a successful blog that eventually becomes an online business, earning you passive income while you travel the world!

Woah, slow down there. Don’t get too excited.

In these past few articles we’ve been making sure you are well aware that blogging is hard work and making money online won’t come easy. There is no such thing as a get quick rich scheme. Building a profitable blog & online business takes lots of effort, lots of hours, and lots of failures along the way.

But don’t let this discourage you from getting started. The time will pass anyway and a year from now you will look back and wish you had started your blog today.

Let’s help you get started with your blog today by laying out all the resources, helpful articles, and tutorials that you’ll need. This is the first time we’ve written a blog post in this style except for when we created our 20 step guide to starting an online business, which you should download if you haven’t yet.

Enter: The Resource Library for New Bloggers

Section 1: The Pre-Blog Basic Concepts

Before you get started creating your website, setting up your blog, and writing articles, you first need to get in touch with blogger lingo and learn the basic concepts. This first section is all the important stuff to read BEFORE starting your blog. Trust me:

First: What is Website Hosting

Second: What is a Domain Name

Third: What is WordPress

Fourth: What is the Hardest Part About Blogging

Fifth: Why Blogging is the Best Business You Can Start as an Entrepreneur

Sixth: 34 Profitable Niche Ideas to Start a Blog

Section 2: The How To Phase

In section two, you’ve got four articles to read walking you through the steps of setting up a WordPress website and email newsletter. Starting your email list is a very important part of building a successful online business. You need to capture the reader’s who stop by your blog and keep them around, reading more and more of your content. The best way to do this is to start an email list the same day you get your blog set up.

Finally, section three dives into monetizing your blog through product creation. If you don’t feel comfortable building your own products or don’t have time, then sign up to be an affiliate for other businesses and help them sell their products.
