If you are new to the internet and wondering what an earth this blogging craze is all about, or if you already have your own website and you’re wondering why everyone keeps advising you to start your own blog, read on. I’m going to explain to you what a blog is, why you need one, how to set it up, promote it and of course, make money from it.
Blogging can really be done in 3 simple steps. So to get you started we’ll look at what these steps are and give you enough information to get you started blogging.
Your posts don’t have to be long, but they have got to be interesting. Give valuable content. Be different. Be fun. Be yourself. It isn’t a writing contest…the “grade” you will get is the number of readers you have…and believe me, they are way more interested in the content than the grammar!
Not being able to get readers is one thing, but if you want to know how to blogger the right way what you really will need to do is try and establish yourself in your chosen niche. The people who are not able to attract readers are probably having a hard time because they are not seen as an authority in a particular niche. So it would be a good idea for you to think of some ways to build trust. One such way would be to do some research on the wants and needs of a given niche. If you are just talking about random information make sure it comes from good verifiable sources that people respect.
Tips on how to start a blog to write a blog would not be complete without telling you to keep the articles you write about focused and short. Probably you should write no more than 300 words and be sure to proof read to correct any spelling and grammatical errors. Readers will continue to return to your site if you post informative articles that interest them and the feedback remains positive.
If you’re doing it the right way, email marketing can allow you to build a list of interested and responsive readers who look forward to getting your email every time.
Goals. No matter if the blog is for personal use or for business use, it is always helpful to write down a list of goals that you want to achieve for the first 6 months or year that your blog is up and running.
Armed with a dream, and a determination to be different from the pack, you can do anything you set your mind to. Dare to be different with a relentless passion, so that you can live a larger life.
