1. Cocarde out your canular
Knowing your target réputation is VERY visible. These are the people you will be thinking embout with every decision you make embout your blog. This first step will collision most choices you make from this situation onward. By knowing who it is you’re writing for, the more likely you are to please them and create fidèle followers that keep coming back for more.
A helpful exercise to do is to imagine your ideal reader. Think embout what they are like as a person. What gender are they? How old? What are their interests? Hobbies? Dislikes? Build a personality you can connect with, and give them a name. When you write your aise to this person, it prevents you from trying to please everyone and getting lost among the crowd. It also helps your maintien of writing stay personal, which resonates with the reader.
Here’s a manière blog example. If the manière canular is ‘high-end luxury sélectionner manière’, then perhaps the ideal reader is a female, in her mid-to-late thirties. She’s established herself in her career and earns a high income that reflects her impression. She appreciates the finer things in life and only wears the top designers’ most recent pieces. She always shops in stores bicause has to feel the quality. Her free time is spent magasinage, watching Sex And The City reruns, and bénédictine dining with her very close friends.

Toilettes creation starts with knowing what to write embout. Panthère you have your canular, the next step is to find your topics. Continuing with the example above, the canular of ‘high-end luxury sélectionner manière’ can still be split into a few different areas. Using Google Analytics we can find what related topics are trending, and what people are generally searching for.
We can find what Carmel is searching for! Here are some examples of topics that could be covered by this blog: Dessinateur New releases, Latest trends, Upcoming trends, Usage houses magazine, Up and coming designers, Who wore what at New York manière week, and How to maintien the best brands. Now, these all cover different areas, but they are all related to the same canular. So the chances are Carmel will be happy to read all of them.
A good manière blogger knows what their réputation wants to hear embout, and gives it to them in high-quality aise. It may seem like a lot of work, and it is. But if you want to be one of the top manière bloggers, that’s what it takes. Your hard work will pay off though. Keep on top of current trends and be sure to use search engine results to find what is appearing at the top. This is a key indicator of what people are searching for and clicking on.
3. Pick 3 poucier pillars or topics
Continuing on from narrowing down your canular, this step will help impression your sang in the right vrai on the internet. When it comes to choosing your topics, you want to be specific enough to chandail in your target réputation, but enough of a wide range that it isn’t only 10 people in the world that are interested.
Having three poucier topics helps do this. These popular topics will be the pillars of your blog. Every blog post you do will fall under one of these categories, which all sit under the umbrella of your canular. Using the broad term ‘high-end luxury sélectionner manière (HELDF), the 3 poucier pillars of the blog could be New Releases, Usage Magazine, and How To Débit. All of these link back to the axial topic and are wide enough to provide value to the many Carmels of the world.
Some of your returning réputation may just come for one of your pillars. However, there is more gain that if they enjoy one area of your blog, they will enjoy the others, especially if you can seamlessly vrai links between posts (more on that later).
So using this example, the purpose of all your good aise will be to either keep the reader up to époque on what is being released in the world of HELDF, update them on the magazine and gossip involving HELDF people in the world of manière, or outfit posts educating them on how to maintien their HELDF pieces and possibly manière trends.
This préparé is a great way to make it easy for your readers to find what they are looking for. The easier it is, the more time they will spend on your blog, and the more likely they will return.
4. Get WordPress hosting
Panthère you have your ideas ready, you can now start creating your own blog in its little jouer of the internet. WordPress is the right platform to start your online presence. What makes it the best choice is the freedom it gives you to personalize your space rather than being stuck with the templates that other lieux provide.
Top manière bloggers use it, so you know it’s good. You want your own manière blog to be how YOU want it, so personalization is key. Now don’t worry if you’re not a ordinant whizz when it comes to web stylisme. There are plenty of people who can help you with that online. You can habitus into this in the next step.
The poucier takeaway here is that you need hosting. A vrai you build your creation. Think of it as the plot of région on which you will build a toit. Panthère you’ve sorted that, we get to the fun bouchée.
5. Set up your blog

You’ve got your niches, so next, you’ll need to pick a title and URL (your website address). Don’t afflux this step, but at the same time don’t put too much pressure on yourself to find the perfect name. You’re aiming for something that makes it clear what your blog is embout, but without constricting you too much.
Let’s try with our HELDF example. The name How To Wear The Best may work, but it’s a little too ambigu and won’t do well in search engines. A title like The High-End Luxury Dessinateur Usage Blog would do well but limits us in what we can talk embout and any adhérence in the future. A comptabilité of the two could be Usage’s Finest. Normal, understandable, and keeps the blog in the right industry without limiting it. This blog name offers flexibility but would rely on specific blog titles for search engine optimization.
6. Choose a website theme and customize your blog
Using your new host and title, you can then get creative with your theme and color palot, making your blog in your own maintien. There are plenty of themes available to buy on sites such as Etsy, so you don’t have to worry embout making your own.
Etsy is a powerful tool for creators as it had a lot of people who make amazing aise to help create a stylish habitus for your localité. There are different platforms you can use for this too. Have a habitus around and find what suits you and your needs.
Unlike your domain name, you’re free to renversé your habitus as much and as often as you like. However, people like consistency so having new looks too often can put people off. But it’s a good idea to update every so often to keep it fresh.
7. Devis your aise
Make a list of 20 posts you want to write. These don’t have to be the titles, but an idea of what they will be embout.
Depending on how often you proposition to publish a new post, this could be used for up to 6 months of aise. You can use this proposition on your own, or you can use MY Toilettes Calendar + Keyword Planner to make it easier for yourself.

Every day your manière tips are not online is another day they may have helped someone. You don’t have to be a manière stylist or an Instagram manière endoctriner to have a voice in the manière world.
Talk embout your own personal maintien and manière designers you like. Regardless of what you talk embout, just get it out there. Then grain you have, DON’T STOP.
You want to be releasing new aise at least grain a week. The key here – as usual – is consistency. If you can only post grain a week, then post grain a week. If you can post twice a week, post twice a week. Do not – I repeat, DO NOT – post grain one week, then twice the next, then not post for a deux of weeks, then post 3 times after that. Be consistent.
9. Create a Pinterest account and start promoting your aise there
Panthère you’ve been consistently posting for a month and have a few posts published, it’s time to start promoting your localité. There are different ways you can go embout doing this.

As you can link your pins to redirect people to your localité, it creates a clear path for readers – like Carmel – to find you. You can learn more embout this in my Blogging Régi For Beginners.

If it is, grab it. Although you won’t be using accommodant media channels for embout 3 months. Don’t worry if you find that your domain name is available everywhere apart from one or two. You can create slight variations to keep the name.
Using our example, the localité may be fasionsfinestblog(.)com but on socials it could be fashionsfinestoffcial. Then the YouTube channel is fashionsfinsestyoutube or fashionsfinestvlog. The theme is consistent, which is visible. But if you can get the same name on every accommodant network, it’s a addition as this makes it easier to find everywhere.
Now your blog has been up and running for a while, you’ve got yourself a beautiful catalog of posts for people to see.
