In our last post we spoke about setting up your blog, so if you haven’t read that go back and read that before going through this post.
Once you have your blog attached to your website, you’re ready to start optimizing it and customizing it for your own liking. The first part you’ll be focusing on is the look and the feel of your website.
If your website is built in WordPress, Weebly, or one of the other big website platforms, you can easily get a nice professional look to your site.
If you’re on a platform like that you can purchase a “theme” for your website. A theme is pretty much you purchasing a “done for you” customization and them personalizing it from there.
Themes Are The Way To Go
There are literally thousands of themes you can choose from, so it’s a matter of finding one that you like. There are even themes for specific niches where it comes with features that are good for you business.

Don’t let that be you. Are you going to have challenges? Heck yea! But if you stick it out and learn a few new skills, this could change the entire appearance of your business. Ask yourself if that’s worth it. Is it worth it to learn some new skill and have to jump a few hurdles along the way to increase the results in your business?
I don’t think I need to answer that for you if you’re still reading up to this point. So get out some paper and a pencil, roll up your sleeves and lets start learning.
Let’s assume that you already have a website at this point. If not you can set one up in minutes at sites like WordPress, GoDaddy, etc.
If you already have a website, do you have a blog?
A what? Did someone sneeze?! A blog is just a platform that allows you to write articles, known as blog post. You can easily attach one to your current website. The guys over at TimeAndFreedom.com are doing a great job of this… have a peek.
