This is the Day 1 of the e-mail course How To Start a Blog. If you are reading this is because you want to learn more about blogging and know how to build an authority blog. But first of all, you should have an idea and decide what to blog about. Some people do it as a hobby to to share their knowledge about a certain topic. Others do it because they want to create a business.
However, the 2 most important things about starting a blog are:
- Choosing a topic or niche that you feel comfortable with and you know very well or having passion for it.
- The content you create should provide value to your reader and thus help them.
Now, one of the biggest motivations about having a blog is the chance of being financially independent and having more time to do the things you love. Being a professional blogger can change your life! The nomadic lifestyle is a new trend and lots of people quit their jobs to travel full-time and make a great income online.
Here I will share a list of popular and profitable niches that you can use to blog about:
- Small business
- Fitness and health
- Inspiration and advice
- Dating & Relationships
What are the reasons to start a blog?
1. To Grow: One of the benefits of having a blog is that you can grow as a person, learn new things about the topic you write about and become more passionate and interested in it.
2. To have your own business: If you want a serious blog then you need to treat it like as a real business. A blog can give you financial freedom and time to enjoy as you wish.
Should you be an expert on the topic?
Many people ask this question because they are afraid not to be good enough, they think they need to be an expert in order to teach others. Well, the fact is this is not true. YOU DON’T need to be an expert when you start. In fact, there are endless successful case studies of people who started with almost no knowledge and they grew so much till they became experts. You can start by sharing the best of you and then progressively learning and giving better value. And I always say, the best moment to start is NOW.
Many people are afraid to start new things or don’t like changes. The truth is that the status quo will not let your dreams become true. I encourage you to start a new path, and I’d like to help you with that.
