Chrissey’s Guide to Blogging

My friend David posts really cool photographs on Instagram of his, he posts outfit details and posts, especially relevant to raw denim. It has grown exponentially and it’s really evident that he’s really passionate and that he loves raw denim!

Anyways, because he has tons of potential, I casually mentioned that he should start a blog and share all of this photos there!

PS- I have Instagram too! My pictures are definitely more casual and informal.

Anyways, here is Chrissey’s guide to blogging, and exactly how I started my blog. Since David asked.

Chrissey’s Guide to Blogging

STEP ONE: Think of a blog name.

Something catchy, clever, which suits your personality. Don’t overthink it! The best blog names are the ones just kinda come to you.

But don’t pick something stupid. You don’t want to tell people your write for a blog called Staph Infection or something.

STEP TWO: Choose a blog platform. Make a WordPress account. 

I am biased, but WordPress is the best blogging platform. It’s easy to use, the community is great, and super customizable. It is SO user-friendly, and makes registering for a domain super simple! Use WordPress.

STEP THREE: Choose a theme, and customize it.

You will probably do this ten million billion times before you find one you like. And then you’ll change it again.

Add widgets, photos, change the color scheme…make this blog YOURS.

STEP FOUR: Click on the write button, and literally write something.

I am a firm believer that if you write about what you are passionate about, then you have a subject for your blog. I write about different things, and I feel like my blog is spontaneous and a surprise sometimes–but I always write about things I love. Food, beauty, fashion, humor…

People worry about branding, but I think the best brand is yourself. So literally, don’t stress and don’t freak out…just type something up or stick a few photos in.

That is it.

That is how you start a blog.

It is really that simple.
