DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU…
Are you trying to figure out what to blog about?
Want to start a blog but don’t know where to begin?
Afraid that a blog will be too complicated or too techy to set up?
Do you have a blog but have no idea how to turn it into a business?
At my blog, marcellawilson.com, I write about blogging, which includes setting up a blog, figuring out what to blog about, writing blog posts, using social media to get more traffic and customers to your blog, and so much more. I’ve found that many moms want to start a blog so they can stay at home with their kids and provide for things like vacays to Disney, private schooling and lessons. However, many moms feel like they don’t have enough time to start a blog. Or they are intimidated by tech and fear setting up a blog will be difficult. My passion is helping busy moms create profitable blogs so they can fulfill their dreams and provide a better life for their family.
One thing my readers love is that I’m a Computer Science professor and that they’re getting the best training and information about blogging. I’m not just someone who created a successful blog and decided to show other people how I did it. Because of my education and past work experience, I teach moms behind the scenes information on how the Internet and blogs really work. So they in turn can take that secret information and reap the benefits of more readers and traffic to their blog. I teach about blogging in an uncomplicated and easy to understand, conversational manner. I think you’d really enjoy my eCourses which teach you step-by-step how to start and run a blog. I’d love for you to check them out and sign up for one of my courses!
If you’re a wanna-be mommy blogger and don’t know where or how to start, I got you. Or if you’re trying to grow your blog or take it to the next level, I’ve got the tools you need.
Here’s some of my most popular content and it follows the logical progression of how to start a blog and begin blogging on a regular basis.

An overview of Blogs
I firmly believe that you can’t start something if you really have no idea what it is. Many people want to start a blog but are not exactly sure what it is and how it differs from a regular web site. You’d be surprised how many people ask me on a daily basis what a blog is and if they really need web hosting. So before you begin, get informed.
what to blog about
In these blog posts, I take you through a series of exercises that help you narrow down your blog topic. Now, you may know what you are already gonna blog about. But I suggest you complete these exercises anyway because you’ll do some other cool exercises that will help you clarify your focus, come up with income opportunities and more.

You need to set up a WordPress blog asap. I can help you do it quickly and cheaply. I have created a step-by-step tutorial on how to set up a WordPress blog in about 5 minutes. And for a limited time, you can get web hosting service from Blue Host for as low as $3.95 a month, which is ridiculously cheap.

Write blog posts
Don’t get it twisted, great content will keep your readers coming back to your blog over and over again. So it’s imperative that you perfect the process of writing a blog post.
Next, I will walk you through with simple step-by-step instructions on how to enter a blog post in WordPress and publish it.

set your blog up as a business
There are some important things you need to do before your blog can start operating as a business. For example, you need a business bank account and a way to accept money online. And please don’t be ghetto and skip this. It’s better to get your business set up legally at the beginning than to later get sued or shut down because you didn’t follow proper procedures.
Make Money Blogging
Everybody wants to make money blogging. But I don’t recommend that you even start thinking about making money unless you’ve been blogging consistently for at least 6 months to a year. That’s right! When you blog consistently, you build a relationship with your readers and they will trust you. If you haven’t put in the time and work blogging or speaking to your readers, then your efforts at selling to them will probably fail.
I believe that in order to make money blogging you must have 2 things:
- A strong relationship with your readers and/or email subscriber list
- A skill or trade that you’re selling like you’re a certified fitness trainer or you make handcrafted jewelry. Or be able to show some type of proof that you can do what you say you can do.
So, if you just started blogging or have been blogging erratically, do not start here because you are not ready. For everyone else…
