    It's so important not to compare yourself and your blog to others. Youre right, we should always just strive to better ourselves! 🙂

    This is a handy list! Your suggestions are definitely essential. For the longest time, I convinced myself that I don't need a planner for my blog because I only run it part-time, but now that I've started using one, my posting schedule is much more regular and smooth, and most importantly, it has made blogging much less stressful!Sockwun | ExtraExtravagant.com

    yes a blog specific email is a must! It makes me feel professional and I love that it is separate from my persona email.

    Having a cheerleader and person to provide advice is so essential. And scheduling!

    These are all great! If i would have had this list when I first started out, I feel like I would have been so much farther ahead from the get-go!

    Totally agree with all of your suggestions here! I would also suggest finding blogging communities on facebook, like Blog Passion Project or Show Your Blog Love! It's a great way to connect with like-minded bloggers and make connections!xo,Chelsie @ Hey There, Chelsie
