    Started a blog. Seeing I got quite the experience on the subject I feel like I could make something out of it. www.fitnessandbodyblog.wordpress.com is the url. I might have over exaggerated a little to be honest.

    Just trying to find the way to get some readers, and was wondering what ways you guys found works best. If you find any mistakes in my setup just tell me I'm not too sensitive. All I'm trying is to set up something succesfull online and critizism is better then people telling you something is great while it sucks, waste of time.

    Thanks for reading :)

    Good start. Tough niche but hopefully you can make a success out of it. Just don't give up

    why not your own domain instead of wordpress.

    The design is not good and you still have your "first post" on there. Try to find a better theme and remove that post.

    Thanks all for your quick replies. Thanks for the compliments.

    Thanks for the critizism and your right, I do have to delete that post and get a better layout. Got an idea which one looks professional?

    I was thinking about buying a domain for it after I got a decent amount of visitors.

    Anyhow thanks for being this positive! :)

    Many thanks for your kind words.

    I feel that somehow sticking to blackhat really motivates. Maybe I might eventually even turn this into a turn your blog succesfull topic.

    here is my detail review of your so called blog, dont take me wrong , really i think you have to put a lot, means a lot of work in u r blog , articles are ok
    but u you have make them click bait along with pics and videos so that u will getting traffic and rebounce rates

    it's better to watch a proffesional blogger video in yt and do the same, change with your content vola ... u r up and running , i think you can do better than this

    i suggest you to watch " wpbegginer" channel in you tube she would tell each and every thing intoto ,

    note she is not an affiliate

    You should buy a domain name right now before having to much organic/direct trafic to your website. Improve it with social sharing buttons + develop your SMO strategy, create communities around fitness, it's a good niche.

    Maybe you can allow a guest comment column there too.

    Good start. I think you could better to buy new domain. Blog looks normal only.
    the domain also little bigger, the blog name will be short mean then that will be more easier to remember.
    So, please try to make better standard, definitely you will succeed.
    All the best.

    Hi! Congrats on starting your blog! Go on youtube and check out the Divi 3.0 theme it costs $60 but once you see what you are capable after watching a few hours of videos you will deff make the investment! I am not affiliated with Elegant Themes whatsoever

    "No boring science crap" seems to be a good approach in the world where everyone is fucking tired of unproven methods that some dude pulled out of this ass. /s

    Getting serious now, dude. It's awesome that you started but your blog seems to be lacking in every area. I would suggest you making a copycat of some popular blog, filling it with your own content and moving from there onwards.

    Choosing from fitness blogs, I like this one https://shockingfit.com/
