How familiar are you with the King of Social Media? Before attending social media class, I don’t even know what a blog is and how does it work? Just little idea, it is an article. Thanks to Bill Belew, who help us realize the real power of blogging. I wish I had started writing a little earlier, but it is better late than never.
Few questions I wish I had answered before I started blogging for business.
Does it really work?
After my first social media class, I started exploring about blogs. Bill told us blog has a potential of generating enough income to pay off your monthly bills. He was wrong, it’s pretty much more than, Huffinton pos. I started it as a part time hobby, but now I try to take it more seriously.
What should I write?
The biggest challenge for me is finding a topic to write about or will people read what will I write? I know this question comes to your mind too if you are thinking about writing blog. The best answer to this is to write every day. The more you write, the more it will be perfect as days go on. Don’t worry about the communication, vocabulary and grammar. In the beginning, it is really hard to get anyone come to your blog site and by the time your blog starts receiving traffic, you will soon be perfect. Write what you like, don’t worry about the others, as long as you are not hurting anyone, yo’re still good to go.
It is really important. No one can help you in this, except you. You have to be the self-starter and remain motivated. We write because it’s a part of our assignment, but not any more. It is equally an important part of my life like others’ daily activities like going to office every day. Initially, it seems very hard handling a full time job and writing blogs daily. When Bill asked us to write 600 words of post every day, everyone started thinking on how to do it. Though he might be joking, but now, every blog is beyond 600 threshold.
Bill told us, to be a good blogger you need to read every day, that’s true. The more you research about the topic, the more good your blog will be. Don’t just write for the sake of writing, but try to put your feet in reader’s shoe. I am sure you will be the best with respect to time.
Will I be in the spotlight with the blog? once I started writing I just pay my best in writing. I don’t care if some like or not. You cannot make everyone happy. Things looks good to you is enough. Blog is just an idea and the way you think it.
Do I have a patience of writing and waiting for traffic coming to my blog. When Bill post the top 10 website, I felt I am the biggest loser after writing 9 blogs, but now I just try to figure out what I missed in my blogs. It takes some time for your blog to be popular and achieve new milestones. But I am sure, one day it will be a big hit.
Is it affordable? Yes indeed, you just need a domain, hosting & that’s it. No need for web developers or software engineers. WordPress will do everything for you. Not more than your semester textbooks.
