Let’s be honest for a moment. There’s no substitute for hard work, dedication, time, energy, and passion, and those of you who want a shortcut will be disappointed by this guide.
Of course, there are some things that you must do in order to be successful as a blogger.
So, yeah, let’s get down to business.
What To Blog About?
This question comes up quite often. Someone wants to blog because they believe it’s cool or it’s going to earn them an extra dollar, or maybe because they enjoy writing. So… what do you blog about?
A lot of people will advise you to find a niche. Do a bit of research and try to figure out what are the trending topics, and try to find one that is relatively new so there isn’t much competition.
I do not like this idea. Not that it’s not artistic, but it lacks any soul. If you write about stuff you couldn’t care less about, then you’re not doing a much better job than a robot.
Blog about something that sets your soul on fire. Write this down. Print it out. Put it up on your wall or fridge or on your desk. Find the thing that sets your soul on fire, in a good or in a bad way, something that you are terribly passionate about, something that makes your heart beat faster.
Maybe it’s a topic that makes you angry or bitter or scared, maybe it’s something you love. It doesn’t matter. If it makes you feel something, you should write about it.
Blog about the stuff you’d like to read about. Would you follow a blog like yours? If no, then it’s back to the drawing board.
