You have an idea and now you decide that it's time to have a blog. But how to start? What should I write about? And most importantly, you have a question: "How to have a successful blog?"
That's exactly what I was thinking when I created Blonde & Cupcakes exactly two months ago. You're an important part of this blog, so Happy Birthday to you too! What I really wanted to say is that since starting a blog, I've browsed around the web to find some useful information about the blogging world. I've read hundreds and hundreds of articles, but I still know that I understand only 2% of the whole blogging business.
For today I decided to list down all the most useful articles that have helped me to become better at blogging. Besides, what could be a better mini-birthday present than sharing these articles with you to help you improve your blog too? (Your blogs are amazing and I have a look at every link you leave in the comments!)
And I also wanted to say A HUGE MASSIVE thank you to every single one of you. Your comments really make me smile and I truly appreciate everything you do for me. I even got some amazing letters from two of my super-duper incredible readers and this almost brought me to tears.
