How To Start a Blog and Focus on Long-Term Strategy
Now we are going to decide how to start a blog. When you are building a successful blog, it should be something for the long-term strategy. So you usually wouldn’t be creating a blog to sell again in a few months time. Although, it’s possible to do this and there’s nothing wrong with that. However, when you are going to be putting some time and effort into this, then you will get much more out of it if you do a long-term project. It can bring you an income for years and years into the future.
Find Your Burning Desire
Therefore, your work should be your play. What do I mean by that? Well, imagine that whatever you do to earn money is also the thing that you enjoy doing the most or one of the things you enjoy doing the most. So, the first thing you need to do before starting a blog is to identify your passions. Think about what you would stay awake reading at night. What types of genres interests you? Is it fiction, non-fiction, crime, mystery, science-fiction, travel or is it natural. What is it?
Early Bird Catches the Warm
We all have something that we are interested. Even if you don’t read about it what would keep you awake at night reading, what would you stay awake for? Way past your regular time that you would go to sleep and what would you happily get out of bed at 4 a.m. So I’m not talking about getting up because you have to get up. I’m talking about getting up because you want to get up.
What will you get up at 4:00 a.m. what would you leap out of bed for at four o’clock? Now it needs to be something pretty good. Wouldn’t you need to do it to be enthusiastic enough to jump out of bed at 4 o’clock? Not to set that snooze button on your alarm to get another 10 minutes but get out of bed and start your day? What would that be? Which activities do you get a ‘buzz’ out of and what you look forward to doing? You need to consider these issues before starting a blog.
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Now it doesn’t have to be something physical like riding a quad bike. It could be something very passive, and it could be some art or craft. However, whatever it is and what you love doing and what you look forward to doing. What are you expert at and enjoy doing? There are things that we are expert. We don’t necessarily enjoy doing them.
Learn How To Make Money
Now here’s the big one. What would you like to be doing, if you had more free time? So, if there were no limits on your resources and no restrictions on your time. So, in other words, you didn’t have to worry, you had enough money to be able to do anything you wanted to do. Because the subject we choose for our blog does not have to be something that we are already doing or something we have done in the past. It could be something that we wish we could be doing and we’d love to be doing so think about these things. What would you like to be doing?
Explore Your Potential and Learn How to Write a Blog
So, before starting a blog, we are trying to identify your passions here something that is going to make you want to keep going on your blog because you love doing it. Now what this means is that you can have, you have the potential here to be doing what everybody wishes they could do, which is making a living from something he or she loves doing. That’s what everyone would like to be doing, but very few people are doing it. Now with blogging and with a successful blog, you can do precisely that.
