How To Start A Successful Blog: What Tools Are Necessary For Your Blog?

You want to create a successful blog that inspires and influences a ton of people, right? You may know what topic you want to blog about. You may even have a content schedule in place and already know what your first 50 blog posts are going to be about. But, do you know exactly what tools are necessary to start a successful blog? If not, keep reading.

Just like everything else, blogging requires tools to help you get your blog up and running smoothly. It requires tools to help you reach an audience, make a good impression, and then keep that audience coming back to your blog so that you can build a relationship with them that helps you not only create a successful blog but earn a huge income as well.

The 10 Big Necessary Tools That Will Push Your Blog Towards Success

Don’t get me wrong, YOU are the key to your blog’s success. Your willingness to learn, adapt, and create a valuable blog that people will flock to are all things that contribute to your blog’s success. Moreover, your ability to keep your blog fresh with new content will help you stay relevant in the search engines, and in your visitor’s eyes.

But without the right blogging tools, it’s going to take a really long time to reach the audience you want to reach and convert them into loyal followers that help your blog find the success you want for it. In fact, without the right blogging tools, you will have to put a lot more effort and time into your blog, which can make blogging more stressful than it needs to be.

What tools do you need and why? Let’s talk about 10 necessary tools.

1. Bluehost

The biggest blogging tool you need is a good hosting company. They are where you will host and create your blog. In short, they will give you your own little piece of real estate on the Internet to build your blog.

A good hosting company should help you get your blog up quickly, have a control panel that helps you access applications that you want quickly, and give you plenty of uptime (meaning your blog stays up and visible to visitors as often as possible).

I suggest finding a hosting company that allows you to create a WordPress blog. I’ve tried the other blogging platforms before, and I can say with complete certainty that WordPress is the only platform that can help you easily build a successful blog. Not only is it user-friendly, but there is a forum dedicated to helping you answer any questions that you may have throughout your blogging career in terms of WordPress. I can’t tell you how many times that forum has helped me create a better-looking blog or fix an issue that was causing my blog to be down or broken in some way.

As far as hosting companies go, Bluehost offers the speed, security, functionality, customer service, and uptime that you need. You can get unlimited domain hosting, email accounts, and file transfer. You can also upgrade later on to a more dedicated type of hosting, which means that as your blog grows, you won’t have to worry about not having enough space to accommodate the additional files you add to it and traffic you receive.

In other words, as your blog grows in success, you can stay with Bluehost for all your blogging needs. This will save you a lot of time and headache in the future.

2. Thrive Themes or StudioPress Themes

Your blog’s theme is what creates the design and layout of your blog. The theme is what determines how your header looks, how your font looks, how your colors look, and how everything else looks!

It also determines the first impression your blog’s visitors get, and as we all know, the first impression is everything. If they see a disorganized and unattractive blog, they can easily get the idea that the blog is unprofessional and unable to help them get the information they need and want.

I spent years using free themes, and I regret every minute of it. Free themes are often ugly and they don’t allow you to create the type of look for your website that you want to create. They have limited options for changing your blog’s font, colors, widgets, headers, and footers, so your blog ends up looking like everyone else’s blog that is using that same free theme.

Blending in is not how to start a successful blog. You want to stand out and create a blog that leaves a unique, positive, and lasting impression on people so that they remember your blog and come back for more. There are two themes that I recommend to help you stand out.

Thrive Themes is perfect for beginners or busy people who want a professional and elegant looking blog, but who don’t want to have to do a lot of work on their blog. It offers you a drag-and-drop method of building a website, and offers a ton of different designs that are ready to use.

Also, Thrive Themes include a ton of built-in components to help you improve your blog on different levels, including speed, social sharing, style, and capturing leads. You don’t need to get a ton of extra plugins because Thrive Themes will take care of a lot for you.

StudioPress offers premium themes that can help you build a professional looking website on WordPress and make sure that it is SEO-friendly. You will find that many popular bloggers are using StudioPress themes because they have a clean and professional look that is easily tailored to fit the blog’s unique look and needs.

The themes on StudioPress don’t include a lot of excess built-in features, which means you will have to add some plugins, but that’s the beauty of it! You can choose your own plugins based on your needs and configure your blog exactly the way you want to.

3. AWeber or Get Response

Next, you need to have blogging tools to help you stay connected to your visitors. If you are not using an email marketing service, you are prolonging the time it takes for you to have success with your blog. It’s a simple as that.

The people who sign up to receive emails from you are your key to success. They help promote your blog and they are the people who return to your blog over and over again, which helps you show search engines like Google that you are a blog worthy of their attention.

As your email subscribers start to trust you, they start to buy stuff that you recommend, which is where the financial success comes in. The more loyal subscribers you can get, the more sales you will make in the long run. In fact, just one good email out to your loyal subscribers could earn you a huge paycheck for the month.

Your subscribers also give you ideas for your blog and help you understand your audience better so that you can appeal to more people and get even more subscribers. In short, without them, success isn’t going to happen.

There are two places I recommend for email marketing. The first is AWeber and the second is Get Response.

AWeber is a user-friendly email marketing service that helps you get up and running quickly. It helps you build opt-in forms, build your list, automate your emails, understand how to use email marketing to your advantage, and send stylish emails to your list that they will enjoy looking at. They offer a free trial so you can check out their service.

Get Response offers a lot of things that AWeber offers, but is a little bit cheaper. It gives you the ability to create automatic emails that go out in a sequential order to your list. This is a great way to funnel people into a sale that you know they will like down the road. It also offers analytics to see how your emails are doing and split-testing to help you see which emails do better with your list.

Get Response offers all the features that you can find at AWeber. Unlike AWeber, though, Get Response doesn’t offer a ton of stylish email templates. Many people think Get Response’s templates are a little outdated, but depending on your niche, that may be alright.

No matter which email marketing platform you use, you will need to dedicate some time to learning how to create opt-in forms for your blog (where people sign up to your email list), and how to create campaigns, split-test, and create autoresponders. But, as I said, email marketing is one of the big tools you need for a successful blog, so the time spent is worth it.

Insulin Resistance

Medical researchers and physicians are paying more attention to the metabolic disorder called insulin resistance. The very early detection of insulin resistance could halt or even reverse the onset of diabetes for millions of individuals. It has been predicted that by the year 2020 there will be approximately 250 million people worldwide affected by type 2 diabetes mellitus. It is now accepted by clinicians and public health specialist that insulin resistance is playing a major role in this epidemic.

The Critical Role of Insulin

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder which if not diagnosed early and managed properly can be life-threatening. The organ which produces insulin is the pancreas and it is insulin which allows the body to metabolize and utilize sugar efficiently. Insulin acts on the cell membrane to facilitate sugar crossing the barrier to provide energy. In the diabetic child or adult, there is either little production of insulin or poor utilization of insulin by cells and tissue. The three (3) types of Diabetes are Type 1, Type 2 and gestational Diabetes. Diabetes if not controlled causes damage to blood vessels and tissues of major target organs (kidney failure, heart failure, impaired vision and neuropathy of the lower limbs).

Most individuals are insulin sensitive and so insulin keeps the blood sugar level from hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) or hypoglycemia (too low). The cells in our bodies must have sugar for energy. However, sugar cannot pass through the cell membrane directly into the cell. When we eat the blood sugar rises and the beta cells in the pancreas release insulin into the bloodstream. Insulin attaches to the cells to facilitate the absorption of the sugar molecules from the bloodstream. Some have referred to insulin as the “key,” which unlocks the cell membrane to allow sugar to enter the cell to provide the energy needed for cell functions.

Insulin helps store excess sugar in the liver and releases it when your blood sugar level is low or if you need more sugar, such as in between meals or during physical activity. Therefore, insulin helps balance out blood sugar levels and keeps them in a normal range. As blood sugar levels rise, the pancreas secretes more insulin.

When the body does not produce adequate amounts of insulin or your cells are resistant to the effects of insulin, we may develop high blood sugar. Sustained high blood sugar over time can cause long-term complications.

Persons with type 1 diabetes cannot make insulin because the beta cells in their pancreas are damaged or destroyed. These individuals are insulin dependent and will need daily insulin injections to allow their body to metabolize and utilize sugar.

Review Of Language Of Desire By Felicity Keith

Women, do you wish you had more passion and intimacy in your relationship? Do you wish you could access a part of the man’s brain that turns on his primal instinct for passion? Do you wish you could say and do things with your man and not worry about being judged or rejected by him? If yes, then you need to read this review of The Language of Desire. Felicity Keith has written an instruction manual on how to get your man’s mind focused on you and intimacy. It’s a manual that could change your entire relationship, which could change your entire life.

What Is The Language of Desire About?

photo22

In part, it’s about dirty talk, but it’s also about so much more. It’s about understanding how men work and what they want. It’s about learning techniques that help you give your man what he desires most. It’s about learning techniques that help you get what you desire most from your man! It’s about increasing the desire in your relationship.

It was created when Felicity Keith knew that she had to do something to create more desire in her marriage, and she thought that learning dirty talk was the answer. But her research led her to something more than just things to say in person, through text, or on the phone. It led her to techniques that tapped into the sexual psychology of men and turn her into a fantasy woman that he dreamed about.

That’s why The Language of Desire is in demand. It’s not about being bad or being dirty. It’s about being super sexy to your man. It’s about tuning into your man’s mind and giving him the messages that he is dying to hear from you.

It’s broken up into 10 Modules.

1. Introduction: Learn about Felicity Keith and the program.

2. Become a Sexual Superwoman: Get out of your comfort zone that tells you that you need to behave in a certain way in order to be proper. For instance, remove the fear of being called a slut because you are a sexual woman. And, learn how to be dirty with dignity!

3. Loving Man’s Best Friend: Learn the secrets of his sexual drive and what he really holds near and dear to him. You will also learn what pornography means to men. With this information, you can stop hating it or labeling your man as something bad if he watches it and, instead, start understanding what he gets from it. This section will be a heavy topic for many women, but it’s worth the read. Plus, you will learn how to use the reason he watches porn to your advantage!

4. Brain Chemistry and Sex: Learn more about the primitive brain and how desire works with it. You will also learn a couple techniques that will increase your intimacy. And you will learn a phrase that every man wants to hear, but very few women say.

5. Create an Erotic Action Movie: This takes role-playing to an exciting level for you and your partner. When he feels like the star of his own sexy script, he won’t need to pretend to be in any other scripts! You will learn how to write and deliver your own sexy movie.

6. Desire Intensifiers: Turn up the heat in your relationship with these intensifiers. This includes a ‘Verbal Viagra’ intensifier that helps snap ‘him’ to attention. And a ‘tease’ intensifier that helps feel the thrill of the chase, even though he already has you.

7. For The Single Lades: If you are single, then this module will help you use the right kind of talk while dating and teach you something to help you get your next guy to commit to you! You will also learn what to do if you have been friend zoned by a man you want to date.

8. Getting Your Fantasies Met: You will learn some techniques to help him become the type of man in bed that you want. You will also learn how to read his mind with what Felicity Keith calls ‘Erotic Telepathy’.

9. When Sex Isn’t Possible: If you are in a long distance relationship or if you are unable to get intimate, this module will help you keep things hot anyway. You will need to be comfortable being verbal with your partner, but it’s worth it!

10. Dirty Talk Mastery: This is where it all comes together and you get your plan in action. Moreover, you will learn how to overcome his objections and deal with a guy who is just not willing to be intimate at all. Lastly, you will learn how to fine tune your techniques.

There is also bonus content that includes:

– The Silent Seduction: Learn how to use your body language to seduce your man.

– Done For Your Texts: I’m sure you text your man, so this will come in handy! There are over 200 text messages, including conversation starters that you can use as is or tweak for your own unique flare.

– Unstoppable Confidence: This is a 48-page PDF and a 95 minute mp3 of a conversation between Michael Fiore and Michael Griswold. So, you can either listen to it or read it. They discuss how the lack of confidence is a problem for so many women and give some insight into men that will boost your understanding and confidence even more.

How It Works

Each section in each module has a PDF file and a mp3 file included. For instance, there are three sections in the first module, and each one has its own PDF file and mp3 file. You can download the PDFs and create a little eBook that you can read wherever you are or put the mp3s on your phone and listen them as you go to and from work.

Each module has worksheets included to help you learn more about yourself and implement what you learn into your relationship. For instance, the first module – Become a Sexual Superwoman, has three worksheets titled:

1. What do you find sexy worksheet
2. Sexploration worksheet
3. What to do if you’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’ worksheet

There is a lot of information in The Language of Desire, so Felicity Keith wants you to keep a journal. This is where you are going to make notes and brainstorm. This is really a place where you can come up with ideas for your own relationship and build a plan.

You can print everything out and put it in a binder. While the program is organized in an easy to use manner, it just helps to have everything in a binder to follow along with or read at your own time. Plus the worksheets need to be printed off, so you can put them behind the appropriate module to keep things in order and work on them when the time comes.

Why Listen To Felicity Keith?

She makes it very clear that she’s not a professional and she doesn’t have experience in an industry that might qualify her to be an expert in dirty talk. But, instead, she is a wife who figured out how to dirty talk to her man in an erotic way that changed their relationship.

She created the Language of Desire as a result of her research into men and what turns them on. The research turned into a blueprint that worked for her. Her friends wanted to use that blueprint and found success with it. And soon she realized that the Language of Desire was something that every woman would love to have because so many women are dying to have the connection with their man that they once had and lost.

The bottom line is that she created a blueprint that works, and that’s why you will want to listen to her. Her blueprint is the key to changing your relationship.

Who Is This For?

You may be thinking that this blueprint won’t work for you because you’ve been together for too long. Or maybe you are worried that you haven’t been together long enough, and your man will think that you are too risque for him. Either way, I’m telling you that there is nothing to worry about because this blueprint is for you. It is for any woman in a relationship with a man.

Even if you just met a guy, the information found inside will teach you how to get his focus on you and keep it on you! You won’t have to worry about any other women turning his head because he will be so drawn to you. And, his focus will always be on you when you understand this stuff.

Who Is This Not For?

This might not be for you if you are unwilling to try something new in your love life. Therefore, if you don’t want to be the one who takes action in your relationship, and you want to wait until you man decides to become more attracted to you – for whatever reason, then don’t get this program. Also, expect your relationship to stay exactly like it is now because if you are not willing to change how you talk and what you do, then nothing is going to change.

What I Loved About The Program

product-group-1

The way they set up the program, with a membership area, allows them to put a comment section under each topic, and you will see that plenty of women are taking advantage of the comment section. The insights and concerns give even more value to the program, so I recommend reading them and sharing your own comments! You can even help other women understand things that you picked up in the program.

Each technique is covered thoroughly so you are not left with more questions than answers. For instance, The Romance Rotator is a technique that puts your desire for romance and desire in the spotlight so that he actually knows what to do to romance you. You learn what ‘need’ you are going to activate in your man. And, you learn how to do it through a step-by-step system.

Lastly, I love the worksheets. Most of them are a few pages long and they make you think about you, your man, and your relationship. They give you actionable tips to increase the intimacy in the relationship and they help you discover things about you, your man, and your relationship in relation to the topic. In other words, you are not just listening to her talk about what worked for her. You are brainstorming how to make what worked for her work for you! You are learning how to take control of your relationship and make your man and you happy again.

The Only Con I Found In The Program

The format of this program is different. You are not going to be delivered a book, which was upsetting to some women who thought they were getting more of a book to download than a bunch of modules to go through. What this means is you have to go through each module (and each section in each module) and download it all separately. I don’t know why they don’t have an option to download all the information with one click. I guess they figure women will learn better the way that they have it.

That said, it’s pretty easy to move through the program the way they have it set up. You sign in with your membership details and you can access the information from anywhere at any time.

Should You Buy The Language of Desire?

Only if you want a better relationship. How’s that for an answer?

The reality is that relationships that lose the passion and fun that they once had can easily go downhill. When one or both people are not satisfied, then one or both people can start to either look for satisfaction in other places or just settle with a mediocre relationship. Neither of those options should be what you want for you or your man.

It can be hard to move out of your comfort zone on your own. You may not want to talk dirty to your man. You may not feel like being intimate with him because, in the past, it’s been so bad. You may not want to come across as too sexual to a new man. But, if you want to change the way your man or men in general interact with you, the techniques and tricks in this program need to be used. In other words, you may need to push yourself out of your comfort zone at first, but once the passion ignites in your relationship, it will be easier and easier to do the things that Felicity Keith recommends doing.

In the end, this program gives you techniques, tips, and tricks to win over your man and make him want you more than he ever has before. That, in my books, is something worth buying. Plus you get a 60-day money back guarantee with the program, which means you can email them for a refund if you are not satisfied. That means you have nothing to lose (besides some time working through the program) and everything to gain.
