How do I know this blog will work?
Simple: Use a layout design that I loved and helped our readers get awesome content fast at the Dear Blogger Community.
Blogging is hard work every day and ultimately content is king — what you write ultimately determine your success.
But what good is your finest visual content if readers can’t find or if things look off on your blog?
That’s why I wanted to give you a complete blog design — a total homepage content scheme from logo to footer — so you can just focus your blogging endeavors on creating content people will read.
We’ll create a WordPress blog (#1 blogging software) from scratch then use the Dear Blogger theme that helped me blog for a living successfully (4000+ email subscribers, not massive but an engaged community) for that past 5 years since I quit my full-time desk job.
(Story here: http://www.dearblogger.org/blog-forever)
Side Note: You of course don’t have to use the Dear Blogger design. You can use this WordPress tutorial to create a WordPress blog from scratch then get your own look with a free WordPress theme. But you’ll at least know some great strategies for long-term blogging success. If after 3 hrs I’ve taught you a little of what you need to make a WordPress blog then my work is done 🙂
Ultimately the goal is that you will never sweat the small stuff again and always have a community here to answer your questions.

p.s. I know there are 1000s of ways to make a blog that works and do great things blogging so this is JUST ONE way. I think too many youtube tutorials on how to make a blog show you how to make something pretty but don’t actually help you blog or do the day-to-day blogging tasks at all really, they kinda of leave you with a cute blog, so this is meant to provide all that extra info for you because we’ve actually done it for real! 🙂
