Are You a Wannabe Blogger? We’ve all been there!
Maybe you want to quit your boring 9-5 job and work from home, make your own hours, come and go as you please and just hopefully enjoy your life and freedom a bit more. I need to warn you it’s certainly not easy being a blogger, particularly if you want to earn a good income from it. It’s not going to be something that just happens overnight. If you want to do this, don’t quit your day job until you’re making sufficient from it to allow you to do so.
Anyone can put together their own cyber stage, called a blog, and share their opinions with the world through it. There is nothing to stop you starting out.
Blogging may start as a hobby…but it’s a hobby that requires a tremendous amount of work. Are you ready to put in work? Blogging is fun, yes. It’s an avenue for personal expression, definitely. But it requires a tremendous amount of work.
Everyone’s doing it. Companies blog about their products and services; Celebrities, such as actors, musicians and politicians have blogs and many of Joe Public also have a blog.
In the beginning the most important thing is the topic of your blog. The topic should be something that you are not only passionate about but it should be something that you know very well.
You’ll need to be unique and certainly differentiate yourself from others out there. Because there’s such an overwhelming number of blogs out there now, it’s even MORE important to make yourself stand out.
There is a vast amount of information that as a newbie blogger you have to absorb. Blogging is not just putting a few words together and publishing them. Blogging is much more than just writing.
When you first start out blogging you’ll do it and enjoy it. You’ll want to do it every day and update your blog on a frequent basis.
To build a blog where you get a decent sized readership, is going take a while and necessitates creation of a lot of content. So if you want to build a blog you have to start writing and writing and writing and then see where it leads you personally.
There are no shortcuts these days – especially with so many people blogging. But there is always room for good, interesting, valuable content.
