Finally got around to make a much requested blogging 101 post. Here are five tips I came up with to (hopefully) help those who have been wanting to start their own blog but have been hesitant in doing so.

FIND YOUR NICHE.

Before anything, you need to find your niche. Knowing what you love helps you set some parameters for your blog and you can just start climbing your way up from there. Finding your voice becomes much easier too. Once you’ve got that covered, think of ways you can up your blogging game with the thousands of bloggers that we have today in the world wide web.

MAKE A BLOG.

Now that you’ve found your niche, you can finally make your blog! Pick a blogging platform that would suit you best. There are many to choose from such as WordPress, Blogspot, Tumblr, and Typepad. After that, you can now brainstorm unique titles for your blog so let those creative juices flowing! Make your blog visually pleasing as well since it helps attract readers.

WRITE ABOUT YOUR INTERESTS.

It’s not uncommon for bloggers to have a writer’s block so whenever you’re stuck in a rut just think about anything that tickles your fancy and write about that. Let your readers know what you’re interested in. By doing so, you’re letting them know a bit more about you through your writing.

BE ACTIVE IN SOCIAL MEDIA.

Getting your blog out there can be pretty tough but thanks to social media, gaining exposure for your blog will be a piece of cake. Not only does it gain you exposure but it also helps you interact with your readers.

LOVE WHAT YOU DO.

Never start a blog just for the freebies. Blog because you’re passionate about it and you love doing it. Freebies are just little rewards for you because you did a dang well job at blogging but nothing beats meeting fellow bloggers and experiencing great opportunities. THAT is the real reward.

Good luck and happy blogging! x
