  1. Bonsoir, je viens juste de découvrir votre blog, certes, que je trouve très intéressant surtout pour un débutant. Enfin, bonne continuation. Merci.

  2. Hi Eb,

    Thank you so much for your step-by-step guide to starting a blog. Since I’m already running 2 websites with squarespace, I sticked to it for my blog as well. But your guide helped me a lot to figure out how to start. I know it will take massive commitment and work to get successful but I’m glad that my blog minimalray.com is up and running (week 5) Hope you’ll get the chance to check it out 🙂

    Thank you again for offering such great help! Love the design of your site! 🙂

    Cya, Ray!

    1. Hi Ray, thank you for this lovely message 😀 Your blog looks great – I am so pleased that this guide has helped you! Eb 🙂

  3. Hey!
    Loving your blog, Ive probably read 20 posts so far. It’s a lot but they are all so useful.
    I was wondering where i can see the next 5 weeks? It says to “sign up for my FREE #ProfitableBlog2020 challenge!” but idk where.
    Really hoping it is hard to find right now so I didn’t waste ur time with a stupid question… haha

    1. Hi Thomas! Aw, I am so happy to hear you are enjoying my blog so much and finding it so useful. To sign up for the challenge and get the next 5 weeks, simply type your first name and email address into the light blue form above where it says FREE PROFITABLE BLOG 2020 CHALLENGE, hit the gold download button and I will send it to you via email. No such thing as a stupid question – that gold button does not make it clear that you will get the challenge via email. This post is due for an update in a few weeks (to make it ready for 2021) and I’ll be sure to try and make how to get the rest of the challenge clearer when I do that. Eb 🙂

  4. Thank you for a very informative blog. I think this is going to be super helpful to me. My blog is only 5 weeks old. At least I feel reassured that I have done the first things right to get started by myself- ie self hosted site with SiteGround and I have purchased the Foodie Pro theme on the Genesis Framework. I have set up my email news letter, social media accounts and icons, installed Yoast, Google Analytics but I am struggling to publish my first post. I have two posts and my about page which have been in draft form for four weeks and I know I am procrastinating but now you have inspired me. I am going to get them finished and posted on New Years Day. Yikes. Only two days away. Thank you for being an inspiration. I am really looking forward to working hard on my blog in 2021 ?

    1. Aw, good to hear you have found this helpful and that it has given you confidence that you have started off on the right foot. I would definitely encourage you to post your new blog posts ASAP! The sooner you publish them, the sooner Google will start to notice you and rank you. New Year’s Day sounds a great day to start! Don’t worry about your posts not being ‘perfect’ – they almost certainly won’t be. But that’s the joy of blogging… you can go back to your early posts later on and improve on them when you have more experience. Blogging is something you definitely learn by doing! Good luck and let me know how you get on. Eb 🙂

  5. I started my blogging journey since 2021 and I’m still facing some tough challenges. However, reading your blog post has given more hope and excitement to continue my journey as a blogger.

    Even though I’ve gain some experience in blogging, your free guide is rich of helpful tips.

    Honestly, I was not consistent working on improving my blog. Now, I don’t have any excuse not to.

    Thanks for your hard work.
