Lately, I have received many questions about blogging by quite a bit of people! Therefore, I thought that it might be beneficial to post my top four most frequently asked questions to help you find out if a blog is right for you… I just want to note that I have answered these questions based off of MY experience and MY opinions; not everyone will agree with my responses, and that is okay!! If you are a blogger or have experience with blogging, feel welcome to place your personal opinions/ answers in the comment section.
1- I really want to begin a blog, but I just don’t have much time to post.
This is a common misconception that stops a lot of people from starting a blog. Let me just get straight to the point, YOU DON’T HAVE TO POST EVERYDAY! In fact, I know some great bloggers that only post once a week, only on weekends, or even just once a month! It is your blog and your schedule, so you can do whatever works best for you!! 🙂
2-I am new to blogging, but I can’t ever seem to come up with some good post ideas…
To be honest, I sometimes have trouble coming up with interesting things to write about too! Luckily, the internet has saved me from this blank phase many times, and there are multiple websites that list 100+ great blog post ideas… My secret is out, can you keep it?
3-I am not good at writing, so I feel like I would be a terrible blogger…
Well, I have to admit that I was not (and still am not) very good at writing. No one expects you to be 100% flawless; it isn’t reality. Secondly, writing and practicing regularly can actually help you improve your writing skills! So, why wouldn’t you want to start a blog?
4- What is the best advice that you have for new bloggers?
The best advice that I can give is to just always be aware of the publicity of your blog and always be very cautious about what you post; you never know who may be on the other side of the screen… This isn’t to discourage you, but it is important to always keep this in mind! Lastly, don’t become overly obsessed with the number of followers and likes that you receive. It is true that you will go through a constant cycle of followers, and you may not get a lot of likes on some posts. However, you are initially blogging for YOU! Don’t let the number of likes that you receive dictate what you post about! Enjoy blogging and post about what you want to, whether it is interesting or not! 🙂 Remember to HAVE FUN!!
I hope that this Q & A post helped cleared up some confusion about blogging, and maybe even inspired you to start your own! Let me know if you have any other questions that I have not answered. Thanks for reading!
