Blogging Tips from 7 Girlboss Entrepreneurs
I love celebrating women and their accomplishments! Quoting Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: “Females are strong as hell.” ?
Women have taken the blogging world by storm. Which is awesome. We have worked hard and intelligently to get to where we are! There are multiple awesome, successful female bloggers who I’m thankful to call friends.
As a blogger, it’s important to build relationships with other bloggers and support each other. We should build and learn from their achievements!
These 7 female entrepreneurs offered their advice for new bloggers:

Growing your social media following and blog readership is harder than it used to be, but keeping your numbers authentic and not dabbling in buying likes and followers are key to your success. PR firms and brands can tell when you’ve bought them because your engagement will be off the charts compared to authentic bloggers. So stay strong! Being authentic pays off.

Blogging is such a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, try something new, and it may lead you in a whole new career or personal direction. My advice would be to just start. It’s easy to want to find the perfect name, best domain, and craft the most beautiful logo and design. In my experience, all of that is great, but it can take a long time to be 100% satisfied, and you’ll learn so much about what you want (and don’t want!) in the process. Just start, and see where it takes you. There’s always time to hone the design or your focus.

My advice would be to never underestimate yourself and aim high! I used to be so scared to reach out to bigger brands, bigger bloggers, etc. But then I finally gathered up the courage to send out a couple emails and go to some coffee meetings. Although, I did get a lot of rejections (which we all will, its okay!) I also got a good amount of positive responses, projects, and collaborations as well! Don’t waste your time waiting around for someone to discover you. You have to put yourself in front of them.

It took me some time to realize it, but in blogging, you’re truly never alone. There are countless other bloggers going through the same thing you’re going through, ready to celebrate your successes with you, and also relate to all of your frustrations. The blogging community is an incredible one, and one that should not be taken for granted. Reach out to others, give genuine compliments, and form your own support system, because it makes every day of blogging that much more worth it. I’ve gained such amazing real life friends from blogging, and I never stop looking for more.

Advice for new bloggers; pick a great hosting provider & domain, have a clean bright layout, make sure you take your time with editing your photos and lastly be you! Write the things you want to write about not what others expect you to write. Don’t focus on the numbers. It takes time to grow.

My advice would be to find a group of bloggers in your city or online. I live in Nashville, and the blogging community here is so supportive and tight knit. We celebrate each other on our accomplishments and it’s great having a group there to ask questions and help you figure out the blogging world!
