There are almost 32 million bloggers in the United States and as of 2020 I proudly became one myself. To be honest, I never saw the importance of blogging about events that were going on in my life. It wasn't until I started my own business that I saw the big picture which was being able to share my passion and experiences digitally with the world.
Anyone can grab their laptop, start typing and publish content as a blogger. That part is easy. The challenge comes in creating quality content that will be able to stand up against time. Will the articles you write in 2021 still be relevant, inspiring and helpful to people years down the road? With the right research, topic interest and quality in your writing that can be achieved. You will be successful and your work will reach your target crowd. You don't have to have a master degree in journalism but you do need to have a master degree in drive, creativity and determination.
Digital Treasures That Last A Lifetime
I love the fact that by creating content and publishing it online your kids, grand kids and other family members will be able to view your work forever. Not only will they have all of the memories of you'll spending time with each other they will also be able to go back and view all of the digital work you created.
Blogging also gives you the opportunity to be able to reach audiences across the globe. Got a passion for reviewing deodorants? There is a crowd for that! Want to share the recipe for your world famous neckbone stew? Unfortunately there is a crowd for that lol. If you can show that you have an expertise and passion for the subject you are writing about you will have people who will check out your work.
Highlight Your Niche
Movie Critic Real Estate Investment News Sports Enthusiast Book Reviews Music
The above subjects along with thousands of other topics can be selected as niches that you can start a successful blog about. I love visiting sites like Pinterest or Medium and discovering new blogs that catch my attention and possibly teach me something new.
In order to be able to stand the time you have to put in the time. Posting one article every 6 months isn't blogging that's jotting. A collage consists of several different pieces in order for it to start taking shape and have meaning. The same goes with blogging. It will take many entries to start framing the picture that you want to present to the world. Once you've found what you want to write about pick a consistent schedule that you will publish new content.
The stop watch has been set to zero. Find your interest, gather those thoughts and start laying the foundation for your digital empire. There are 8,760 hours in a year so that gives you plenty of time to go out there and create great content. I look forward to discovering and reading your blog posts in 2021.
Until next time wash those hands, be safe and get to typing! I'm Out...................
