Get Templates – I uses wordpress and the number of different templates associated with this blogging software is amazing.

I want an auto responder, but don’t know how to set one up. An autoresponder is a list building service which people will use to opt in to receive emails from you. There are lots of providers out there. Aweber is one of the largest out there and again I would recommend using them as they have step by step video’s on how to do everything. It is surprisingly easy to get this setup and will probably take around half an hour from start to finish for the first time.

Once your blog is all set up, you need to do some things to ensure that you will succeed in blogging. For instance, you need to reply on the comments that readers will leave on your blog. Make sure that the email notifications for comments are turned on so you can know, moderate and approve each comment as soon as possible.
