Build A Beautiful Blog Week | The Blog Cafe Giveaway

A sample from the portfolio of The Blog Cafe:

Jen, of The Blog Cafe, began as a web designer over 11 years ago. “In 2007, my husband and I decided to adopt our son from Guatemala (we have one bio daughter that is now 16 years old) and I began a blog to share with family all the details of the adoption journey. It began as a website first and then I discovered blogging, and I was hooked. Then I ‘decorated’ my blog and then friends started asking me if I could do that for theirs. I was having so much fun, my husband and I decided it would be a great fundraiser to pay for the adoption fees and the rest is history!”

Q: Do you have any advice for someone who is starting a new blog?

Blogger is the best for just starting out with a new blog. Blogger is very user-friendly for new users and doesn’t overwhelm you.Start simple when you begin, write about you and what you like. Chances are there are a lot of people that are going to love the same things you do. Join some blog communities to help people find you and follow other favorite blogs! Most important, get a blog button with grab me code. People find you super quick on other people’s blogs by their blog button, what it says, and how it looks!
