Step 4: Design Your Blog

One of the easiest ways to design your blog is by picking a theme.

What is a theme?

Think of your theme as the decorations in a house. A theme makes your blog look professional and aesthetically pleasing! There are many free themes out there but purchasing a paid theme is one way that will make your blog look professional right off the bat. 

We strongly recommend Divi by Elegant Themes. It is the theme we use on all of our sites. It is also our number one recommendation to clients.

Step 6: Market Your Content

One important thing to get straight right from the beginning is this: if you do not market your content no one will see it. Like ever.  The internet is a huge wormhole of content.

Why Spark Your Blog?

We have been where you are! We got married, overspent, had a baby, and felt like we were drowning in student loan debt, bills, and every day expenses. Starting our first blog changed everything! With my little mommy blog, I was bringing in over 1k a month in less than a year with pretty minimal effort and maintenance  (after I got the blog off the ground that is!)

That could be you too! If you have a few extra hours to spare each week think about what that extra income can do for you! And if you work really hard you can turn blogging from a side hustle into a full-time gig! It's possible!

So stop dreaming and start doing!
