3 Essentials Steps to Start BLOGGING and Not Know You're Doing It.

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Group Pittsford, NY

It only yesterday it came to me after the 5 month and on day 11 of my 30 Day- Hyper Local Challenge

This newbie blogger struggled with content and information to share that was both meaningful to me and of interest to my readers. 

You need 3 Essential Steps to Start Blogging:

           1.  CO2                plus sign               2.  Sunlight             plus sign3.  Water

   co2 sign           sunlight in sky                    Water droplet into water

From 3 Essential Steps to Start BLOGGING, all else flourishes

Lets start with CO2.  We as humans give this off when we exhale going through our daily activities, now feeding the earth vital gases.  Through this exhalation trees give back life in the form of oxygen, for re-use by humans.  It's experience through others without realizing it- that reminds me I have never seen CO2.  My interaction with customers/clients/co-workers/counter parts via phone, face-to-face meetings, emails, blogs and others.  

Sunlight- wonderful blessing in the sky...although a little less of that in the Rochester NY area.  It provides the inspiration for some people to wake up in the morning.  It feeds our vital crops, flowers, energy levels and can easily take it away when hiding behind clouds.  Somewhere in your day you a have a ray of sunlight shining through.  An inspiration or bright idea from your experiences meaningful to you- do not write about it if you do not believe in it.  This will be your start BLOGGING and Not Knowing You're Doing it concept to get across to your readers.

Water, none less important than the other two.  Nothing grows without it's life blood-water.  For me that's the Active Rain Community and my outside BLOG- GreaterRochesterArea.com , again generated through Active Rain (ie:Word Press).  There are other forms of water out there and most of you have those other water sources, which is great.  If we all used the save water source, it would soon run dry.  An avenue to feed your thoughts daily- for me AR!  Without active rain I do not think I would  have generated an avenue to get my name and valuable content out to the public. 

A example is my previous Blog "10 Summer Safety Tips For Your Family Pet".  While cleaning out the doggy pool I thought about all the wonderful pets and wondered what poor four legged family member was suffering?  Did an owner forget about them in the heat?  This was my inspiration.

I am just looking to write enjoyable content to educate and entertain the public.  I put in a link here or there to outside content,writers block with typewriter give credit where credit is due and throw in a few meaningful pictures for my readers to enjoy. 

Give it a try.  Take a challenge.  Commit to it like nothing else.  This for me has created a routine, forced me to set a goal and see it through.  Every day it gets a a little bit easier.  I can already see my progress...Don't just be blowing CO2.

So Take the 3 Essentials Steps to Start BLOGGING

It's funny what little things can become blog fodder.  Lately I'm not short on ideas so much as short on time to pull it together.
