In the first part of this resource post, I provided some great links to help with writing better headlines, better posts, and some link building strategies.
In this part, I am going to just share some useful links on what to do if you’re just starting and then advice on what to do when blog growth slows or plateaus.
Posts On Starting A Blog
When you start a blog you want to make sure of one thing: that you are doing it for the right reasons. You want to be writing in order to make a difference in someone’s life, not to become famous. Your art (what you write) is only good art if you can change someone in a positive way, otherwise it is just more noise.
Spend some time up front, before you launch that new blog or before you hit the publish button, and you will be thankful you did. Here are some great links to help beginner bloggers start right:

Posts On Growing Your Blog
It’s the problem all bloggers face. They have put so much hard work and effort and suddenly things slow down. And usually what happens next is we get insecure and the fear of failure sets in. We think, am I wasting my time? Is all this hard work going to ever amount to anything?
It’s what you do next, however, that will make all the difference. The blogger that has determined to be successful will refine themselves and their posts, they will think strategically, and press on. Here are some great ways to keep the momentum going:
