I just want to share some personal truth with you, yes, you.
Two people email yesterday and told me that they wanted to start blogging and needed my advice.
First I was curious to know why they wanted to go into blogging but on a second thought, I realized that they were too determine, too passionate and too serious to succeed
Let me share the summary of our discussion with them, because I believe this will be of great benefit to many people, since this is a user generated content platform, I know many people will see it.
Blogging is a good way to share your thoughts and ideas to the World. If you are into blogging to make a difference and you concentrate in building a niche for yourself, you will not only have a positive impact on the World, you will also create a name for yourself.
But one major problem I see new bloggers get is not traffic, it’s good and original content, if you have good and engaging content and you build on it, over time you will have constant stream of readers.
Most bloggers believe in quick fix to success, that’s while they just cut and paste stories, most time without even referencing the author which is very sad and expect over night success.
If you take a look closely at the cover photo, that’s how my desk look like every day, I read, write, drink my green tea and continue writing.
If you are into blogging or planning to go into it, please write on what you know very well and concentrate on developing yourself in that aspect, the ROI will be massive in the long run.
Don’t limit yourself to just your blog, look for open platform like Trendiee and share your thoughts, write for other experience blogger in your niche to get backlinks, engage with your audience both on social media and your blog.
Promote your writing judiciously, once you have good quality content, hit websites like Reddit.com, voat.co, etc read their guidelines first then start sharing your stories there.. Post on open forum like trendiee.com but make sure you also put a backlink to your blog.
