Common Questions and Answers
From its early beginnings until today, blogging has become an essential medium of interaction, whether for commercial or social purposes. You can share your thoughts and feelings, market your company’s products and services and discuss matters relevant to your business, both casually and formally, through blogs. However, before you can start blogging, there are several things that you need to consider.
First, you have to choose the right topic for your blog at the right time. When you write a blog, you need to do it because you love what you write. You need to choose a topic that you like to spend your time on. Don’t lose sight of your interest just because you want to make bucks. Follow Pete Cashmore of Mashable. He founded Mashable in 2005, but of course it wasn’t that easy at first for him. When social media has exploded in the early 2000s, he was there to ride the wave. He knew that it’s not going to be easy, but he blogged anyway because he love what he is doing- blogging. And he became successful because of his passion to blog and gained his popularity in the online industry.
Second, you have to be creative. While it is important to have an interesting and fresh content, you also need to know how to present it. Be visually attractive. Consider your blog’s design and aesthetic factor. Present your blog in a way that your audience would not ignore it and would not click on that “x” button to leave your page. Business blogs can benefit in having fresh content regularly and it can be a good channel to generate business prospects or business leads. Fresh and unique content will keep people coming back to your blog.
Third, be passionate. Without a doubt, the one that pointed successful bloggers in the right direction was their passion about what they’re blogging. Turning their blogs into a source of income was not easy. It took them their time, patience, effort and of course passion. It took them a long time to find their voice and decided to dream big and take risks. Like them, you can become successful in your blogging career too. Just know who you are, what you love and be not afraid to go public with it.
