Free Ebook: How to Design & Launch Your Blog in 7 Days

Lesley Yarbrough May 25, 2021 · 3 min read

Blogging allows us to express our unique point of view with a seemingly infinite audience. Whether you’re passionate about traveling, fashion, sports, politics, cooking or any other subject, launching a blog can help both release and grow that interest. On one hand, as you share stories online, thousands of readers all around the world get the chance to connect with your message. On the other hand, documenting and presenting the topics that genuinely interest you can trigger even greater personal fascination for what you already love.
To help you turn your blog idea into a reality, we’ve partnered up with GoDaddy to compile an amazing toolkit designed to set you up for success. You’ll find:

  • a 77-page eBook with detailed instructions to design and launch your blog
  • templates for social media graphics in three styles: DIY, illustrated, and lifestyle
  • a customizable press kit in .psd and .docx formats
  • a printable 7-day challenge calendar (tabloid)
  • an editable template for your blog’s logo in .ai format
  • a 20% discount to buy any creative assets you need
  • a link to deals and discounts for WordPress hosting plans

In short, everything you need to get this project going!

  • Ok I would like to cry, now. THIS is exactly why I struggle - I cant even open the file. I have no idea what programme to use to open it, or for that matter, if I actually have the required program on my PC. I do not use apple. for anything. So its sitting there, now, in my document files not even useful as an ornament. :( 3 years ago
