I truly love blogging. Every part of it.
I can truthfully say, blogging is more than a job, it’s a passion.
It’s a big advantage to me, because Passionate bloggers have advantages over non-passionate bloggers not only in that we love what we do, but our passion shines through in every word we write.
So, how do you become a more passionate blogger?
First of all, enjoy your niche. Blog about something you love.
The key to being passionate is to figure out what excites you. Consider the topic you gravitate towards. What do you spend your money on? What occupies much of your time? What do you like to think about?
As a blogger I feel nothing is more important than blogging your passion. It is one of the core fundamentals of growing a successful blog. You will write more content, be more engaged, and stay with the process longer, when you blog about your passion.
If you’ve been blogging for any amount of time, you’ve heard that content is king, and that design, SEO, in and outbound links are also important to your success. But there is something far more important.
Something that only you can bring to the table, something that only you have to offer that will really make your blog shine.
You are the magic ingredient that will make your blog unforgettable.
It is your voice that matters.
There is only one thing that will keep your readers coming back to your blog, when they could go elsewhere for the same information, and that’s you.
Your voice, your take, your opinion —those are the things that make you memorable. Those are the things that make you stand out in an ocean of blogs.
You have a gift!
You have something priceless, a gift that you were born with, a gift often taken for granted: no one can think or speak or write the way you do. The way you put words on the page, how you interpret things—these are treasures that can’t be taken away from you, treasures you should cherish.
There’s only one you.
When you find your voice, you will know it and it will come naturally. It will feel real… and people love “real” and it will feel really good to you.
It is your voice that brings the human element to your blog, it demonstrates your personality and it makes your blog come alive.
If you don’t think your voice is coming across through your blog, maybe you’re not letting your passion resonate through it.
So ask yourself:
What are you deeply passionate about?
What are your natural talents, your skills & abilities?
What can you be the best in the world at?
Where does the Magic happen?
Don’t be just another blogger. You have something incredible and special and entirely unique to offer, just make sure you find it. When you do you’ll enjoy what you’re doing, then you’re going to do it well, which means you’ll add value to your readers and you’ll experience a very s rewarding and satisfying role as a blogger.
