I know success is subjective, but these tips are the foundation for any kind of success you want with your blog.

I just passed my third blogging birthday, and I couldn’t be more proud. When I started my blog, I imagined I would use it as a creative outlet and a way of connecting with others. Over the past three years it’s grown into so much more.

Maybe that’s why you’re here: you’ve started or are planning on starting a blog and you want to see where it could possibly take you. The answer: anywhere.

Being clear about this will also help your reader find you — and hopefully fall in love with your information and the way you share it!

If you’ve found your purpose and you’re passionate about it: awesome — you’ve got step one nailed down. If…
