What Are My Top Five Tips For WebBlog Creation?
1.Purchase a domain name that you Love from GoDaddy.com – GoDaddy is a great domain name provider, I use them for all of our domain names. They have great prices, great support and great technology. Choose a name that you Love and that reflects what your WebBlog essence will be about.
2.Host your domain with DigitalBusinessLounge.com – The Digital Business Lounge (DBL) has a whole range of valuable tools on offer for you to use in creating a successful, beautiful and functional WebBlog online. Some of the awesome stuff includes:
Countless world class themes (Including this one we use on our website called Divi theme by Elegant Themes which I recommend wholeheartedly. It’s easy drag’n’drop style with high creative flexibility.)

Awesome plugins and software including YourTube Player and Graphix Creator
Simple Lead Capture so that you can create your own fantastic advertising and landing pages with a few clicks from highly proven templates.
Simple Trakk so that you can monitor your efforts.
Caring, knowledgeable and tech savvy support team.
3.Use Canva.com to create your awesome images and banners – This site is a great tool for your creative workspace. The core system is free and it is a really useful and fantastic way of designing and producing images, banners and promotions easily and quickly. Select your images, adjust your text, save to your computer and use however you wish, easy!
4.Outsource the professional stuff you need from Fiverr.com (Yes for $5) – This is one of my favorite sites and can really boost how professional your WebBlog, brand and business comes across to your visitors. You can find a wide range of services on offer from graphic design, video, audio, writing, translation, programming, advertising and much much more. You pay $5 for a basic gig for predominantly world class results.
5.Use other Websites and Blogs out there for inspiration – This is more of a general tip bit, but highly highly valuable. Before you begin creating content, go out onto the web and absorb all that you love. See what you like the look of, the way other sites communicate, what they offer and what resonates with you. Bookmark the pages and sites you find appealing for reference as you start to create your own incredible WebBlog platform for creativity and success.
Just go out there and do it with enthusiasm and a ‘no matter what’ attitude. You can. You hold all the power within you.
So there you have it, an overview guide to the practical steps and valuable tools you need to bring your professional WebBlog to life.
As promised I’d like to share with you just a few do’s and don’ts you might want to think about when setting up your website or blog.
DO Back up your content and your site regularly. – No one enjoys loosing work that they have spent a lot of time, energy and resources creating. It’s even worse if you can’t replicate it and it’s lost for good. So invest some time to back up and keep organized the content you create and your WebBlog you are building.
DO Invest in research. – Now ‘research’ may sound a little dry to some. But what I really mean is Get out there and learn some skills! Skills and knowledge will help you in all areas of life and they will also help you create better content and know how to make that content work for you. Start at YouTube and the dive into then World Wide Web to find the answers to what you’re looking for.
DON’T Put limits on what you can do. – People, with far less than you have right now, have achieved miraculous things in life. You have greatness within you, but you have to believe in yourself to make things happen. Work on yourself first, unblock your limiting beliefs and develop your mindset and values in life. You will find that you are then able to help those around you better, offer more to the world and what you do offer will be of greater value.
