5 Things to Do Before Launching Your Blog

Taking that big leap of publishing your blog can be terrifying. Is it ready for the world to see? Have you done the right things to make it successful? While there is certainly room to tweak it as you go establishing some basics will ensure your blog gets starts on the right foot.

Here are five things you should do before launching your blog:

  • Establish a stellar theme. Whether you pay for a premium theme or establish your own, you want to make sure it\’s a good one. It should be eye-catching, beautiful, and designed to showcase your work
  • Preload your site with posts. Take time to publish a handful of good posts. Also have a couple in standby for the near future. Make these some of your best so you can get a head start during those early days.
  • Setup your email. Others need a way to easily receive your most current posts. A solid email list will help you accomplish this.
  • Cover your social media platforms. Your blog might be ready to launch but have you established social media profiles to go along with it? Having a presence on these sites offers more opportunities for engagement. They also present a way for you to direct people to your blog.
  • Create a Routine. Knowing when and how often you will post is essential. You don\’t want to start out strong only to see your efforts fizzle out. Establish when you will write your posts, what day you will post, and how you will manage day-to-day tasks like email and social media.
