Why Would You Start A Blog? – Because it’s FUN.
It also challenges you to be creative. We believe that everyone who has access to the internet should research more about their creative interests.
To dig deep into Google, researching your interests will surprise you about the possibilities you have at your fingertips to blog about.
We went overboard on photos to show you how much fun we had with this blog post
If you’re really doubtful about blogging, think of it as starting a hobby then you won’t feel any self-imposed pressure.
We understand how you might feel because we didn’t believe we could blog and look at us now… We’re Blogging! 🙂 🙂
The best part about blogging is that it’s easy to do and is very cost effective. It doesn’t cost a lot of money to set up a blog. In fact, the majority of work will involve your time – not your dollars.
All you need to do is make sure every piece of content has your voice, carries your message and represents your interests or business in the best possible way.
CREATING CONTENT FOR YOUR BLOG
The type of content you create will depend on your target audience. Think of who you want to talk to. Every piece of content should always be informative and the juiciest, most relevant topic you can come up with.
Your content will be what drives in traffic and keeps visitors returning to your blog. People follow when you stay consistent in delivering good information they find useful and that’s referred to as “giving value”.
Content Is King!
Simplicity rules now with blog layouts so you don’t have to worry about your blog looking extravagent. People come for the content and they will read your post.
Focus on the quality of content throughout the year. A schedule with ideas and references will help to keep a creative flow.
Remember the reason why you are blogging and why someone should read your blog.
A word of advice is do not reproduce information.
Focus on originality. Use your own voice. The personality of a blogger is the best weapon to make any content unique.
We Already Know Your Next Question!
What If I Don’t Have Enough Ideas For Blogging?
With so much information online you’ll find more than enough research for your projects. Your own experiences as well as blogging about others can captivate an audience.
The point is that once you start down this path of expression your awareness builds and ideas, along with creative juices, flow.
Sometimes we feel like this photo below with ideas shooting everywhere! 😉 😉
Blogging will become second nature as you progress and find out more of what your audience wants to read.
Are You Worried About Your Writing Skills?
Don’t be. Writing for the web is different!
People don’t care about textbook-perfect grammar, or following some recondite essay writing formula.
All they care about is if your writing is entertaining, and whether or not your writing provides value.
YOU can make a difference to inspire someone and that’s a rewarding feeling that can be very addicting… which will inspire you to blog more! – See how it works?
Remember this: As with anything else in life, the first steps are baby steps. Some of the cutest videos on You Tube are baby ducks fumbling and tumbling around as they gain a firm grasp on walking.
This is how we all started blogging. Baby steps.
Anything that has to do with the internet is still relatively new. However, you can rest assured that there’s been a learning curve for everyone.
The question is: Are You Willing?
Our guess is you are willing and just need a bit more guidance. We’re going to continue this with a Part 2.
