Blogging Tips and Advice
Below you'll find the posts at Sugarrae from the blogging category. I highly recommend you read each of them if you're serious about making an income or developing a personal brand as a blogger.
If you're brand new to blogging, I'd recommend reading the following resources relating to making your blog search engine friendly to help you get your blog in "ship-shape" before working on implementing any of the promotional, branding and monetization strategies we recommend:
- Get Genesis and migrate your blog to it
- The bloggers guide to SEO (non platform specific)
- The basics of WordPress SEO
- Preventing duplicate content with WordPress
Additionally, while not aimed specifically at blogging, I'd highly recommend reading my post about unique content before working to gain readership to ensure you make a solid first impression.
If you have suggestions for posts you'd like to see me do or information you'd like to see provided, please feel free to contact me and let me know.
