About the Author:

I’m Annabel Candy, a web designer and copywriter with a background in teaching and journalism. In 1996 I got an MA in Design for Interactive Media and have 17 years of experience designing and writing for the Internet.

When I started blogging four years ago I got confused because one blogging expert recommended one thing and another something else. Successful Blogging in 12 Simple Steps is the guide I wish I’d had when I set up my blog. It contains the essential information you need to succeed. After following the steps you’ll have:

  • a clear plan on why you’re setting up a blog and the results you want to get from blogging
  • a strong foundation for your blog
  • a good design that appeals to readers, either created by you or your web designer
  • well written content that people want to read.

I wrote Successful Blogging in 12 Simple Steps to:

  • help new bloggers get off to a flying start.
  • help intermediate bloggers improve their blogs.

If you do it well blogging’s a brilliant way to spread your ideas, set up a new business, position yourself as an expert or launch a new career. But at the moment many people who want to start a blog don’t because they think it’s too hard or too technical. It’s not. Successful Blogging in 12 Simple Steps makes blogging accessible to everyone.
