This is a question I don’t have the answer to. I’m new to blogging and am very much testing the waters, but I’m sure you already know that if you’ve read the “about me” page. But I think, like with many things in life, starting a blog is a leap of faith. You don’t know quite what you’re going to get out of it. Some do it for fame, others for fun, but at the end of the day it’s all one big roller coaster ride. Like a roller coaster, it’s an exhilarating experience. An escape from the everyday, a way to voice your thoughts free of restriction, free of judgment. So maybe I do have a little to say, so here’s a few tips that got me started (I’ve been blogging for a few years now, but my other blog was relatively simple).
1. Don’t be afraid to start:
If you have something you want to say, just write.
2. The nice thing about a blog is people choose to follow you:
You attract the audience, no need to worry about finding the right topics to talk about, just speak what’s on your mind, what interests you.
3. A blog is ever growing, it does not live in a vacuum:
Your first post may be lame, may get no likes, but that’s not a sign to give up, that’s a sign to keep trying.
4. Keep it positive:
I know I said write whatever, but try to put a positive spin on it, nobody wants to read about how depressing the world is. Optimists go far in this world.
5. Have fun:
If you’re not having fun while writing your blog, then what’s the point? It has no benefit for you and most likely will not have any benefit for those reading.
So there you have it, five tips for writing a blog. Have a great Tuesday and thanks for reading!
