How to Start a Blog — Do you have any questions?

Quick question for YOU! :) Have you ever wondered how to start a blog or have any blogging questions (technical, design, growing your audience, writing, anything?) I’m working on a future post and would LOVE your input! If you have any questions, PLEASE leave them in the comments here or email me (Melanie at Thank you!

    I have design questions. How do you make the cute menu bars with links for facebook, twitter, pinterest, email, etc? How do you create such fabulous stuff?

    I have wanted to know how to get those grab code things for ages… Yours is the first site that mentioned photo bucket – most helpful.

    Growing an audience is a key question, what to do if your theme doesn’t work with all the new WordPress features that they bring out, blog hops and link ups, how often you should post. Thanks!

    The questions Cyndi asks and:

    How do you have a private conversation with someone? Is there a way someone can email you without your email being seen by public?

    What is the difference between Blogger and WordPress?

    How do you grab someone’s button?

    I’m sure I have more, but that’s all I can come up with for now. Thanks for addressing this topic. I’m very ignorant when it comes to these things.

    I’ve often thought that might be something I would be interested in, but no clue how to do it. I’m not exactly tech-savvy, but have lots of interests and would love to know where to start.

    Hi! I have lots of questions.. I’d love input on: growing my audience, adding sidebar icons that link to other sites, and scheduling my posts. For example, i thought i had scheduled a few posts to post later, but they never showed up. I know what i did wrong now, but what’s your method for keeping up with and monitoring things like that?

    Like Cyndi – design questions instead of using a template. Also, I don’t always know what to write about.

  • Tracey Beers

    I have a few Pinterest / blog questions:
    – Do you know how to direct people to you website through Pinterest?
    – Do you know how to put those ‘pin it’ buttons below pictures posted on a blog?


  • Tracey Beers

    OH! and how do you design a ‘button’ for others to grab?

  • Chandra

    My blog is not really full of “tips and tricks”, it is more of my journey in my walk with God. But, I would like to make it more pleasing to the eye. I’d also love to add tabs for different topics so it is easier to find for my friends who ask. I’d also love to have links to other sites that I rely on for faith building, too. I’ve been blogging for two years and still no NOTHING! LOL!

    I wonder how you go about getting sponsors! Thanks!
