What Do You Need To Start A Successful Blog?

You can get a blog up and running in no time at all. In fact, you could have one in operation within twenty minutes if you were so inclined. But there’s a difference between setting up a blog and creating a successful blog. And if you’re going to make an effort to register a domain name and create a website, then you may as well take the additional steps required to ensure that it’s successful. 

But what exactly does that entail? While there’s no magic recipe for creating a successful blog, there are some characteristics and traits that most successful blog owners share. In this blog, we’ll run through just five. Take them on board, and you’ll be on the right path towards success!

Something to Share

There are plenty of good writers out there. But the number of good writers who have something valuable to say is much smaller. When you’re coming up with the idea for your blog, think about what you have to offer the world. Every blog has its own unique selling point. It’ll be up to you to find what that exactly is. You’ll likely find that it’s something that you can write about confidently, either because you have relevant life experience or because you’re something of an expert on the topic. 

A Good Website

No one would read a blog if it was just a wall of black text on a white page. When it comes to blogs, the aesthetics of the website is arguably just as important as the content and quality of the blogs themselves. So make sure that your website looks the part. If you don’t know how to do this, then look at hiring an agency to do the job for you; tonimarino.co.uk is a good place to get started. As well as the design, the website should be fast, clean, and without annoying features (such as autoplay videos, multiple pop ups, etc.). 

Time to Work 

Creating a successful blog can take a lot of work. And for that, you’ll need time. If you don’t have much time to dedicate to your blog, then you’ll find it difficult. One way to get around this is to make your blog a priority. Can you give up something else (say, socialising with friends) in order to spend time working on your website?

Optimism and Motivation

Finally, remember that you’ll need to have plenty of optimism and motivation to create a successful blog. If you don’t have those things, then it won’t be long before the difficulties of running a blog begin to weigh you down, and you give up. It’s the people who stick with it that end up successful! 


There are no guarantees in this world. All you can do is do your best, give yourself the best chance of being successful, and hope that luck is on your side. If you take the above words of wisdom on board, then you’ll be putting yourself on the right path towards success. Best of luck!


3 Reasons Why You Should Book a Professional Photoshoot as a Blogger

Hey my loves, so sorry for the absence on here but I have been spending some time on fine tuning all of my offerings. As you should be aware of now, I run a female empowerment brand called Women Who Slay and I have recently launched a new Instagram page for bloggers and content creators called Blogging 101 where I share tips and advice to grow as an Influencer. As a result of this, I have been pulled here, there and everywhere. On top of that, I started a new role recently so I have been overloaded. Nonetheless, I really wanted to utilise the Blogging 101 section on SashaShantel.com and not only drive traffic to my fabulous home on the web but also share some epic photographs I shot with the talent photographer and graphic designer Katie Ryan Creations.

5 Reasons Why Employers Conduct Pre-Employment Physicals

There’s one thing that every employer needs to do, especially if they were a small online business that now wants to expand and have a physical location (like a storefront), that would be engaging in employee help. This even goes as far as applicants and their health. When it comes to applicants, qualifications matter, but physical/ health matters just as much.
