I want to start a blog. Great! What do I do? Where do I start?
I am pretty new to all this but I know I want to do it! this is why I’ve started. In the book “Linchpin” by Seth Godin it says to “Start Blogging.” So I found WordPress.com and designed a simple page and here you are as the reader. As far as content goes since I have started right out of reading a book that I really enjoyed I find that the ideas for new content comes pretty quickly. I am actually impressed
I think that staying curious and always learning is key to this.
What is Blogging?
Blogging is not writing. Wikipedia gives this definition “A blog (a truncation of the expression “weblog“) is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (“posts”).”
If this is true you can write about what you want you don’t have to be specific. That probably wont be very profitable, unless you are really exciting like someone who travel’s a lot, like some of these peoples:
I am not a very interesting person (That is just me you are probably much more interesting than I am), so people like me have to talk about something that we love and that we know a lot about. I am reading about success and starting a businesses, and at the moment I love this topic and I want to write about that. This may change.
But I am not doing this for money, at the moment. I want to do this to be something that I love. A gift to the world something that is genuine.
If you want to be profitable, you attitude will need to a second job trying to drive traffic to your blog, to create revenue. Please check out this video:
have fun blogging.
