    I've just recently wanted to get into blogging and heard that bluehost is a good hosting site so i went with that. I also have a domain with them. I've got the basic WordPress set up but don't really know what kind of direction i should i go about designing the blog itself. Any tips for a new starter that just wants to blog and hopefully become an affiliate in the future? Thanks for your guy's help :)

    just concentrate on the content, "content is the king", the design is less important, also you must be patient because it takes months until you will rank on google

    i agree with mexela. you should concentrate on creating quality content at this stage. design at this is not as important until you build your audience. then you will know what kind of design will sit well with this audience.

    if you search online for ways to create quality content you will get loads of ideas to make your content quality. when you share this content people will like to read it and share it for you.

    good luck

    I up vote for quality content. Do not use spinned context. Even for Tier1 content should be original.

    Just like everybody here, I'm also going to rant on the importance of focusing on quality content above anything else. If you want to get a good reputation in the blogging world and has a desire to be an affiliate in the future then it's important that you build up your reputation by deciding on how to create engaging content. Depending on your topic, make sure that your content is original to avoid plagiarism warning, realistic (achievable), interesting enough to be shared through social media and actually adds value to your reader. The rest will follow.

    Thank you guys so much for the replies and all the help. I understand quality content is key and that ranking on any site will take time and hard work. Thank you for all the ideas. And especially to refexpert
    Blogging first and seeing your audience for design ideas is great input

    Choose a niche you're interested in, and don't forget to include pictures with the articles to keep the readers engaged. As mentioned above, content and thus user experience are the most important things.
