Blogging, is your way to be heard

Start blogging for the first time is an amazing, yet intimidating experience.

I guarantee that employers and many other people you meet will be checking up on you. So why not make them think you are some super huge internet celebrity? 

As Blogs are becoming the new resumes, Blogging about a topic you would like to be viewed as an expert in, can illustrate to readers, employers, and your network, that you are skilled and knowledgeable.

Having a blog will surely make you a better person. Why? Well, blogging obviously improves your writing skills as well as communication skills. 

You will start thinking more intentionally about who you are and who you want to become. One of the most important keys to successful blogging is having a passion for your blog’s topic so that you can write prolifically about it.

Blogging is the shy person’s stage. You can be the center of attention, meeting new people by gaining follows and likes, all within the safety of your own limits.

Blogging is another form of Freedom

 Your blog is your own, whatever you want it to be, and it’s a great way of gaining confidence whether it’s in the field you’re writing in or the personal expression. 

Anyway, the good news about blogging IIIIIIIIS >>>> Introverts now has a voice YOHOOOOO!!

Writing might be the single most important skill you can learn if you want to be successful with any online lifestyle business. A blog actually gives you a way to practice these skills.

“The first draft is just you telling yourself the story.”

Chances are if you do this long enough, someone will be thankful for the value you have added to their life. Toss up a donation link and give them a nice sob story about how you’re broke. You never know what will happen!

You must have heard or seen people who are making a lot of money by just blogging. Yes, it’s possible to monetize your blog. It takes time, but once you have enough readers you will start making some small, yet passive income. When time goes by, your traffic numbers will increase as well as income.

What to do exactly when starting a blog

Okay, so when it comes to the technical side of things, starting a blog is actually really straightforward. All you do is:

  1. Find a nice blog domain name and register it.
  2. Pick a blogging platform – most likely WordPress.
  3. Sign up for a blog hosting account – Siteground is what we recommend.
  4. Have WordPress installed.
  5. Pick a blogging WordPress theme.
  6. Install a set of must-have WordPress plugins for blogs.
  7. Customize your site and fine-tune the blog settings.
  8. Write and publish your first blog post.

While it might be early to jump into buying your hosting, when you’re ready to do it, make sure you use the above for Siteground. It is an affiliate link (meaning that we’ll get a small commission), however, it will also unlock a $2.95 vs $3.95 discounted price for you. You won’t get this discount if you visit the Siteground site in any other way than via the link above.

If you’re interested in implementing a cohesive blog strategy or looking to improve your current blog strategy, we invite you to schedule an inbound marketing consultation with our team. 

We will discuss the important metrics to track, and how to make sure your current and future blog strategy is successful. So what are you waiting for? Go out there and create your own little space on the Internet—you won’t regret it.
