This is my very first blog and I’d like to share the reason for me starting my own blog.
I have always been a huge fan of bloggers and the fact that they’re able to use their platform to influence people. I have been following several bloggers and I have seen them grow, going from 500 followers to 15 000 if not more.
Not only have I seen them grow in numbers, but they have been growing as people and it’s absolutely beautiful. The way they motivate people and influence them in a positive way… Like me perhaps. I’m starting my own blog as many young people are doing lately.
The only thing is, you don’t realise how much effort and time go into creating a blog. There is so many things you have to consider, and you even have to plan. As you would when starting a small business.
Starting your Blog is more than a page where you share your points of views or pictures you took in a 5 star hotel with your bathing suit looking all delicious. Because let’s face it, not all of us has the body to go all out. This is why you have to know what it is you wish to achieve with your Blog, find your niche, be creative and being able to hold your audience and keep them loyal.
So I’ve decided to share how I started and what I considered to be important questions in my opinion.
Let’s get started;
You have to ask yourself;
>What is it that I want to achieve with my blog?
>Will I be able to follow through? Since growing your audience takes quite some time. Alot of people tend to start a blog, bet end up forgetting, quitting and losing interest.
> What genre will my Blog be? Lifestyle, Beauty, Health and fitness, photography, etc
There is so many other things to consider, like how often will I be able to post in order to keep your followers attention.
What are you willing to do to Gain more followers. This can be having competitions, collaborating with other bloggers, advertising your Blog.
Yes, you have to spend money if you’re going to be serious about your Blog
I hope this blog has been some help to some of you future bloggers.
Try reaching out to more experienced bloggers should you need advice or assistance with something. They won’t turn you down.
