Are you a beginner blogger?

Would you like a safe haven where you can learn and ask questions about blogging?

Welcome to Beginner Bloggers, the sister blog of Fairy Blog Mother, specially created to house blogging tutorials to help you at the beginning of your blogging careers.

The kind of people we aim to help are:

Midlife bloggers

Non-techie bloggers

Slower paced bloggers

Nervous bloggers

Can you relate yourself to any of the above?

Then you’re in the right place. We specialise in creating tutorials and courses for real beginners, those who need help right from the start.

There’s no need to feel self-conscious, no question is ever stupid, you don’t need to understand everything immediately, and you can do your learning at your own pace.

That’s why we’ve created the kind of learning that is well known for being “explained really simply”:

Easy to understand

Step by step learning

Using everyday, ordinary language

Explaining through visual examples

Browse through this site to find what you need

Use the search box at the top of the sidebar. If you can’t find a tutorial on a particular subject, please let us know. This blog is still relatively young, so new stuff is being uploaded all the time.

And we would certainly value suggestions and requests, so we can provide the content you really want and need.
