When starting a blog, there aren’t any right answers or perfect formulas. It’s okay to follow your intuition and even experiment.
Don’t get bogged down by comparing your blog to other blogs. Someone else will always get more attention and more retweets. Learn from others but stay true to your own unique strengths.
Your blog might take off in 3 weeks, 3 months or 3 years. In the meantime, keep blogging. Blogging is a learn-as-you-go process, and if you’re tenacious, you will find your audience and they will find you.
It’s difficult to blog for years about a topic that bores you to death. Write about what you love and the passion will show.
You might think your blog is about one thing, and 3 months in you realize it’s about something entirely different. That’s okay. Most new bloggers don’t find their footing right away because it takes time
Blog at least once a week or more often. Blogging once a month won’t get you the search engine traffic, brand awareness or customer connections you’re looking for.
Know your ‘WHY.’
Focus more on ‘why’ you’re blogging than ‘how’ to blog. Don’t get so bogged down in technical details that you forget why you’re blogging.
Why Are You Blogging?
Facebook and Twitter might be less intimidating, but blogging offers much greater potential to your business. If content is the fuel that runs the social web, then blogs are the engine. Benefits of blogging include:
Creating brand awareness.
Keep in mind that you might very well be your own brand, depending on your business.
Becoming an authority.
It doesn’t matter how much you know if others don’t know that you know it. Share your expertise with the world and let them know you can help them.
A blog is an excellent platform to show people how to do things and the best tools to get those things done.
Catching the attention of leaders in your field.
Create round-up posts where you ask the movers and shakers in your niche to answer a question or two. It’s a great way to introduce yourself to others in your field. Don’t forget to link to their sites, too.
Do you want to partner with other marketers? A blog showcases your talents and point of view, making it easier to create connections that lead to profitable joint ventures and partnerships.
Search engine traffic.
Google loves blogs because they are updated regularly with new information that is helpful to searchers.
Social media traffic.
Share your new posts on social media and ask others to share them as well.
Building your list.
This might be the biggest one of all since a good email list allows you to sell products at the touch of a send button.
