Got A Website? It’s A Business??
Personal blogging is still in fact happening all over the world. However, most people are on the internet to look up a specific question or chain of information. They’re not interested in Sally down the street who likes icecream.
People are looking up questions on Google and YouTube trying to solve whatever problem they have:
“What Is Investing?”
“How To Bake A Cake?”
“What Are These Spots On My Feet?”
These are all examples of questions people are searching for everyday. In fact, when creating a blog, it is a huge help when you do research on what people are actually searching online! This could help you down the road with organic traffic and such! More in another article!!
Choose your blog platform wisely. My go to platform will always be WordPress, or until told otherwise.
Do diligent and TRUE research on blog topics. I hate false information just like everyone else. So why bother making up information when there is real information out there?
Advertise your writings on social media and questionaires like Quora and Reddit.
