Learn to blog
Here’s a few reasons why you should have a Blog
HELPS TO ESTABLISH YOURSELF AS AN AUTHORITY
Most people online return to the same websites all the time. The ones that are interesting to them and that give them what they want. When you have a blog, you can create value for your readers and establish yourself as an authority in your topic.
GIVES YOU A PLATFORM TO EXPRESS YOURSELF
Having a blog gives you a great platform for you to share your knowledge and what you are passionate about.
When you start to discuss the things that you are passionate about, and when done in the right way, it can be both emotionally and financially rewarding.
YOU WILL MAKE NEW FRIENDS
You’ll meet people via blog commenting or maybe through social media and email.
On the whole the Blogging community is a very friendly place and most bloggers will be happy to help you and wish you well and the relationships that can be made, last for ages.
GIVES YOU POTENTIAL TO EARN AN INCOME
Earning an income from your blog is definitely possible, especially once you have created great content and grown your readership around your blog. I’m sure you know of at least one big blog that make thousands of dollars every year.
IT CAN BE USED AS YOUR ONLINE HUB
You can use your blog to be the centre point of everything that you do online. It can become the focal point of everything that you do, which then makes it easy for your customers to know where to go and makes it easy for you to let them know your latest news.
YOU WILL BE ABLE TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE
You have a chance to help and inspire other people.
By sharing your knowledge and expertise, you’ll be able to help other people move forward on their path – Personally, this is the biggest reason I blog. I think this is by far the most rewarding part of blogging.
That seems like enough reasons to start with, but before we get started with the details, let me ask you a question…
How Many Successful Marketers Do you Know That Don’t Have A Blog?
It’s a fact that most of the successful marketers you know own a blog.
Starting a blog of your own can be one of the best decisions you make in your online Marketing career. It’s a given that a quality blog can provide you with an opportunity to make an income for yourself!
So Let’s get started
I’ve tried to structure the coaching in a logical order but I am sure that I will be adding to this list as things change in the Blogging World.
It’s Your Blog and it’s OK to be Personal
Many times new bloggers are really not sure what to write about. They know that their blog is a personal space, but they are afraid to make their posts personal in any way.
The best bloggers put themselves out there via their posts. They post what’s on their mind and their views or opinions on pressing issues. They may do so in a humorous manner or be quite serious.
Sometimes new bloggers are afraid to post their true thoughts because their blog can be commented upon. The fact is however that not everyone will agree with your thoughts and posts, but you should not let that hold you back. Don’t be afraid to let your true feelings show on your blog, after all, that it what an online journal is all about.
Keep It Fresh
One of the best things you can do as a blogger is to keep your blog content fresh. People who will become fans of your site will want to read as much as possible on your blog.
Updating your blog regularly will allow them to be entertained. If you only post once a month, the chances are no one will remember to keep checking your blog and your traffic will not be that impressive.
There’s obviously a lot more to take in to consideration when you run a blog, but the best tip is to get started and in the famous words of Nike ‘Just do it‘
I hope you enjoy the journey and I’m really looking forward to seeing what you come up with, so don’t be shy, come and say hi and tell me all about your new blog.
Best wishes on your Blogging and WordPress adventure
