Have you ever thought about starting a blog?
Do you have a lot of philosophies on how the world works?
Want to keep yourself inspired, while inspiring others in the process?
One of the best things you can do to kick start your spiritual growth and your spiritual business is to begin to share your thoughts, your stories and your insights with others through a blog.
Blogs are a great way to show the world who you are and what you believe, to share with potential clients your personality (so they'll know if they click with you) and to finally clear out those throat chakra muscles and express yourself.
You can start a spiritual blog - in fact, I encourage you to do so.
I’ve been blogging on spiritual topics for the past several years, and every day I hear from my own readers that there are not other spiritual blogs out there. Not enough, anyway.
There aren’t enough places to find helpful information about intuition, chakras, developing abilities, connecting with spirit, energy healing, reiki, shamanism . . .whatever!
I hear time and time again, that there is simply not enough information on the psychic, intuition and spiritual realms out there on the internet for people to explore.
And you can change that.
With your unique voice, your stories and sharing with the world what has helped YOU on your journey, you can become a go-to source for information with a spiritual blog.
So, how do you begin?
7 Step to Begin A Spiritual Blog
1. Get a website
My personal website host is Squarespace - I love their hosting platform and customer service.
The most popular platform for website blog hosting is Wordpress. Since Squarespace has 24 hour technical support and easily designable templates, I chose against Wordpress simply for ease of setup, though many people love Wordpress for is customizable, flexible platform. If neither of these two website platforms work for you, there are hundreds of other website hosting platforms to choose from - many of my friends use Wix.
Already have a website? Skip to step 4.
2. Choose a domain name
When you register for a website hosting platform in Step 1, they’ll often give you a temporary domain name. But, eventually, you'll want a permanent one. The domain name is what is after the “www.” For example, my domain name is 'amandalinettemeder.com.'
Domain names cost money and are available for purchase on a variety of websites, including eNom and GoDaddy.
Once you buy your domain, you follow the steps provide by your website hosting platform (chosen in step 1) to connect your domain name to the website.
3. Design your website
Many website hosting platforms have design templates you can install and customize.
To begin your site, simply choose a template and install it. Then start to build your website pages. At the very least, you’ll need to have a Blog page (where you can post articles), an About Me page (where people can learn about you), and a Home page (where people land when they first come to your site).
Overtime, as your blog grows, you’ll want to include a page describing how people can work with you, and a page for anything that you may want to sell to visitors of your blog.
4. Come up with topic ideas
Think about what you want to write about. Most of writing is actually thinking.
Write down a variety of potential topic ideas until you have at least 10 ideas to choose from.
Your ideas can include anything that inspires you, inspires others and offers value to the reader. In many cases, there is great value in sharing your personal story and what've you learned from experience.
5. Start writing
Begin writing on those topics as though you were telling a story - you want to have a introduction, a main point and a conclusion. Many blog articles include a take-away message for the reader - a ‘point’ of each article.
After you’ve written your article, set it down for 1-3 days and come back to it for editing with a clear head.
6. Begin posting
After you’re written and edited several articles, start posting those articles live on your website and remember to include a photo. A single photo can help provide context for the article, can draw a reader to click on the link and can provide a hint of the overall energy or theme of the writing.
Do not use photographs from anywhere on the internet. Many photographs are copyrighted and you can be sued (I’ve had friends where this has happened). You can find royalty-free in many locations. Find your photos on a royalty free website such as pixabay.com.
7. Spread the word
After you’ve begun your blog, it can take up to 8 months for the search engines to begin crawling and indexing your website so they come up in internet searches. This can feel like a long time. The good news is you can use Google Webmaster Tools to submit a URL for indexing to get traffic to your website quicker.
As your site is being indexed, the best thing you can do to gain traffic is to share your articles via social media via your personal Facebook page, Pinterest or Twitter. Install free share buttons on your website. Tell your friends and other intuitive people.
From there, word will spread.
And soon, your articles, your knowledge and your insights will be out there for people to find.
Your voice will be heard.
It’s about time.
