I am so happy you have found your way to this site. It’s safe to say, since you are reading this, you are interested in starting a blog. If so, that’s fantastic. Blogs are a great way to get your voice heard, share you latest creations, and start movements. Many of the websites you see across the internet, are in fact, blogs.
On this blog, you will find all of the information you will need to start a successful and rewarding blog of your own. I have laid out the process one step at a time to ensure that even a novice can Begin 2 Blog.
Why should you start a blog?
For every person the answer to this question could be different. But, for everyone interested in starting a blog, there is one common thing. YOU have something to share with the world. No matter what you are interested in, there are more of you out there who are just waiting for a different perspective on a given subject. Have you been through something, taken the the time to learn a new skill or talent, or have you just figured out an easier way of doing things? The best thing about reading other blogs, is gaining new knowledge. You could have a way of doing something as simple as cooking a dish that might save a single mom hours of work each week, or another way of writing a budget that could lead to a family getting to take their dream vacation. No two people are the same, so why not share your take on things with the world.
What is your niche?
You might have found your way to this sight because you already know what you want to write about, but others may have no idea. This is something many bloggers struggle with on a daily basis. This is especially true for those just starting out.
There is no rule saying you have to blog about just one thing. Many bloggers choose to blog about several interests, while others choose just one. This is totally up to you. For those of you still trying to decide what your specific niche is, start out writing about many things, and narrow it down when you find your true passion. Take mom bloggers for instance, some blog strictly about the everyday struggles they face, while others blog about kid activities, recipes, finance, and crafts. It just depends on what works for you. More than likely, once you have a couple of posts done, you will know for sure how specific you want to be about a subject.
How easy can it be?
To put it simply, very easy. The days of having to go to school and learn how to write computer code are gone. Starting a blog is much more user friendly now. Many programs, such as WordPress are so simple to use, a novice can use it from the start.
WordPress is the platform many bloggers choose to use because of the simplicity. Posts are written in a back office much like writing a word document. Adding pictures and links to your posts are done by the click of a button. Some people choose not to start a blog because of the “techy” stuff, but don’t let that stop you. YOU can do this.
Now that you are starting to think about why you want to start a blog, what you want to write about, and how easy it can be, let’s begin!
