3 Easy Steps: How To Start A Successful Blog

1. Decide on your niche: Everyone talks about this but it is very important. How can you write content if you don’t know who you are writing for?

Some people may do this, but then they are writing something that represents more of a “Journal” rather than a “Blog“. A Blog should provide value for a niche of people (as well as the author).

Think of who they are, and what sort of content they would like. Consider doing some surveys. This will help you find out the kind of questions that they have, and your Blog posts can answer those questions.
A lot of the time, people ask me whether a Blog can switch into different topics and areas covering a lot of ground. Of course it can! I would recommend that it has some kind of “focus point” though. For example, this Blog covers a few areas: Make Money Online, Home Business, Network Marketing, Internet Marketing – All of these niches are covered but there are actually a lot of topical links between them.

Easy!

2. Think Long Term: Blogging is a long term pursuit and should be treated as such. You shouldn’t be writing content for a few weeks, build up a following and then drop the Blog a month later. That would be pointless. You need to think long term and put some kind of plan and schedule in place. This could include things like deciding “how often you will be posting”. See my post here on that topic.

From the start of your Blogging career/hobby/pursuit (or even job and income source!), make sure to get into a long term mindset and you are more likely to succeed.

3. Have Fun: This is an obvious one but you should be having a great time with your Blogging! When you write posts and press “publish”, you should be enjoying yourself and the process of putting your content out there.

Now, I am not saying that everything will be enjoyable. You might find the technical challenges frustrating! Or, you might find it frustrating when your web traffic is low (in the early days). On that note, see my post here that should help you get your posts visible to get your traffic. There will be frustrations, but the actual “Blogging” part should be Fun! Even if it is challenging.

Remember: It’s a long term thing and you need to put yourself into that mindset from the start. There are lots of Bloggers who abandon their Blog after a few months and it definitely shows to the readers.
