Writing A Good Blog
Note from Jon: This is a guest post by Dries Cronje from Productive Entrepreneur If you’re like me, you often turn your nose up to guest posts on popular blogs, because most of them are by beginning bloggers who are still learning their chops, and so the posts kind of suck. You’ve heard of WordPress before— it is the most popular blogging platform in the world WordPress offers two different blogging platforms: and The main difference between the two is that the sites are hosted on WordPress’ server while sites are hosted on an external server.
Secondly, my blog displays a passion and dedication, as well as knowledge of the industry, which helped me land a gig working at ‘Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.’ Thirdly, as my blog grows, I am inevitably making contacts with various brands, other bloggers and designers and with that comes a plethora of knowledge, advice and opportunities within the industry.

My friend Shannon from For the Mommas is one of the most business-minded people I know, and she’s a huge proponent of putting together a business plan, no matter how big or small your blog is. Although I’ve thought through each of these items individually, I’ve never taken the time to put them in writing in one place, and so I’ve put together this printable business plan for you as well as myself.
It is not because I don’t think I’ll get value but it’s because I find paying that much money is just too much for what it is.
