I want to start a blog!
Here I am going to talk about blogging. Blogging can be so rewarding. both financially and personally. You can write a blog about literally anything you fancy! Are you passionate about pigeons? Write a pigeon racing blog! People searching for the best way to breed pigeons WILL come across your blog! You want to start a blog? Lets go!
Do you love cooking? Why not document your recipes and meals, taking pictures and uploading them? More and more people will gradually start to use your recipes. There is no better feeling than knowing you have helped someone in some way.
Not all bloggers are in it to make money. Some people just like to use their blog as a journal. Some blogs are private and are basically just a way of documenting feelings. These are very valid reasons to have a blog.
However, if you would like to build up to a second (or even only!) income, then you will need to think a bit more about your blog posts. Not that many people care about my mouldy bread, for example. BUT if I turn it into a post about how to prevent mouldy bread, and what to do with it without wasting food – someone somewhere will absolutely search for that at some point.
If you want to make money from blogging, you need to make sure you have an idea of what you want to write about. If you’re not really sure, then a lifestyle niche would be the best. You can write about lots of things – food, travel, home, children, music – pretty much anything goes. Just make sure you don’t over saturate just one category, if that’s the way you are heading. You can learn more here.
Some examples of blog posts can be found here. You should never copy any one else’s work, but definitely take inspiration from them. Some bloggers will also write guest posts for your website if you provide a link back to theirs. If you want to start a blog, check out some other posts to learn how. Why not learn some other new skills too?
