Many of you have probably thought about running a blog / channel on social media or YouTube, doing 'something' in general. When I talk to people, on average every 2 person wanted to start a blog at least once. How many of these people are starting a blog? A handful, maybe even less.
Unfortunately, it is often the case that people who want to start a blog are not aware of how to go about it. I hope this post will help you gather and act.
How to start a blog?
Many people have a passion, something they are interested in, something they like. However, not everyone can talk about it, and even less can write about it. I have always approached my blog not as an unpleasant obligation, but as an investment in the future. Of course, you can delete a blog, but some trace of it will always be on the web. Today, blog is our place, which we create every day - by writing posts or social media activity. There are days like today that I sit down at the computer and just write. There are days that I have nothing interesting to write.
When one of my friends mentioned that she had the idea of starting a blog, we immediately started to help. We love talking about blogging, our mistakes we've made, and warning others not to make them. I also talked about this in February on Insta live on our Instagram profile (see our profile if you don't know it yet: click
If you want to start blogging, write 30 posts. This is a good foundation that will allow you to move and not lose enthusiasm. The beginnings are difficult, let's face it. If you don't have someone to help you with all this, you will probably be overwhelmed by technical issues such as finding / modifying a template or setting widgets. Not to mention the newsletter or subscription configuration. If you have no idea what I'm talking about - better read Blogger's guide
before you publish your first post.
In one of Tomek Tomczyk's books (known as Kominek or Jason Hunt) I read very wise words about the fact that many blogs end their activity on the first post. It's true, although I won't say - it's good for us, because we know ... less competition (joke).
Running a blog by force - you can feel it!
Do you think that every blogger runs a blog with passion? There are various reasons - Janusze blogging count on a freelance, others are blogging, because they started and regret to end them, although they have nothing interesting to say anymore, and others run a blog because they like it. We are in the last group, although it is not always colorful. Sometimes there is no strength, sometimes there is no motivation, and sometimes there is simply no inspiration.
Several times I came across a girl's blog (a few months apart), which was run by force. What was the reason? I don't know, that would have to ask the author. Unfortunately, the blog is not run with the heart just to feel. It is difficult to determine, but if you come across such a blog, you will immediately understand what I meant.
What did the blog give us and why will we keep blogging for many years?
The blog has been our bargaining chip more than once. Whether it's looking for a job, in college, or in contact with other people. A blog is something that we manage to interest most people we've ever spoken to. People are just curious about why we blog and very often also how it brings benefits (unfortunately, people still think about bloggers as people who lie and smell, get #darylosu from companies and wonder how to get alcohol from a reunion of bloggers).
We never talk about the amounts we earn from blogging. If someone delves into the subject, then we operate the range, because it's easier this way. People like to be interested in other people's lives and enter their wallet. I will never understand it because I don't look into my wallet, but if you prefer.
Nevertheless, a blog is a way of life for us. We like what we do and others appreciate it
which for us is a great motivation to continue. And most importantly - we are not standing still, we are constantly looking for ways to attract new readers - whether through interesting topics on the blog or social media activities (for just 4 months our Instagram profile
has grown at an extraordinary pace!).
