Blogging and design don’t have to be intimidating.
My name is Caitlin and not long ago, I was in your shoes. I wanted to blog, but I had no idea how. I’d started a few different blogs on WordPress.com and Blogspot, but they all failed. Not to mention, they had ugly URLs like “caitlincheevers.blogspot.com.” I wanted my own domain name.
So, I figured out how to do it. I found people who could help me and did a lot of research on my own. It took a lot of work—I’ve changed my entire brand, crashed my site more times than I care to admit, and stayed up many nights into the wee hours trying to figure out how to change a small bit of coding.
But now I’ve got a successful blog that I enjoy updating every week.
And I want to help you do the same thing.
I started And Possibly Dinosaurs in 2014 as a way to help women start their own blogs and businesses by making the intimidating aspects easy to comprehend. Each week, you’ll find new tutorials on blogging and design to help walk you through the process of starting your own blog.
Can’t figure out how to change the color of a particular bit of text? I can help with that.
Not sure if Photoshop is worth the investment? I’ll show you the pros and cons.
Running a blog doesn’t have to cost you a ton of money.
It took a lot of time and money for me to get to this point. But as I’ve learned, I’ve discovered new ways of doing things. I’ve cut back on a lot of blog expenses, and now I want to help you do the same.
Some bloggers will tell you that you need to have expensive software like Leadpages or ConvertKit to have a successful blog.
I’m here to tell you that that’s bullshit. You can do most of it for free.
Because it’s fine totally if you don’t want to turn your blog into a full-time business. Or, if you do, it’s okay that you don’t have thousands of dollars to dish out on software and courses that make empty promises.
I’m in the same boat as you. I work for a nonprofit organization, I love spoiling my puppy with toys and treats, and I’m trying to save up for my wedding. This means there isn’t much money left for my blog.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t still be successful.
Come with me and I’ll show you how.
