  1. There’s so many useful tips and advice here, I know I could have done with hearing a lot of these when I was just starting out. Thank you for the opportunity to get involved with the post lovely!x

  2. There are some fantastic pieces of advice in here! I agree with pretty much all of them – the amount of blood, sweat and tears, as well as time, is something you never are ready for when you start out. Hopefully this will help inspire a few people to know what they are getting into so it’s not a shock that makes them stop! I love the idea for this post.

  3. I agree with some many of these points from other bloggers. When I first started I really thought it was going to be much easier than it is. I also wish I knew more about the technical side! X

  4. Such a great variety of advice here perfect for new bloggers! I think itโ€™s nice to see too that none of us are experts when we start and blogging is a learning process, no one is going to be a genius at it straight away!x

  5. Ahh, what a great post! It’s so cool that you got all these different perspectives. I loved every piece of advice in this post. I think it’s all really valuable. And the fact that it’s taken from their own experiences is really special as well. It definitely gives it a more personal feel. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I think because I’d had a website before, all be it was digital fan art not a blog, I was aware of various things that needed doing before setting up a blog. I used to code my sites from scratch back then, so using a template & WordPress was new to me. I’ve been blogging 3yrs now but I am still constantly learning things & looking at ways I can improve and learn more. So much good advice from everyone though! ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Fantastic post! It’s so interesting to read everyone’s thoughts and advice! I would have loved to read a post like this when I was a new blogger, it’s so helpful to hear other’s opinions. I think mine would be: Just have fun! Blog about whatever interests you and don’t worry if you don’t follow the crowd or the latest trends, be yourself, that is what makes blogging interesting ๐Ÿ™‚ Wonderful post, thanks for putting this together Megan <3 xx

  8. I can certainly commiserate with a lot of these! Blogging has a pretty steep learning curve, itโ€™s not hard so much as just overwhelming at times! However, despite not knowing a lot of these beforehand I still wouldnโ€™t change the journey itโ€™s taken me on for anything!

    • Relate to this so much! While all the resources now are great it’s been so much fun learning everything as I go along. There’s so much to think about though and you’re right it’s overwhelming. If you break it down into little steps it’s not too bad though xx

  9. I can relate to a lot of this. There’s so much to know before starting a blog, yet it feels almost impossible to know it all ahead of time. That’s why posts like this are very helpful. Also found some new to me bloggers to check out thanks to this.

  10. Loved these thoughts from the bloggers and I agree I wish I had known about a lot more things when I started!!

  11. Some really lovely advice! As a new blogger, I’m glad I came across this post early on to make sure I’m doing everything the best I could before I regret them sometime in the future. Thank you for sharing!
