Do you have a knack for writing? Do you love to share your insightful stories with the rest of the world? If so, then it’s time for you to showcase your talent with a self help blog!
Your blog will allow you to express your thoughts and feelings. Best of all? You can inspire millions of people with your guidance.
Let’s get to it!
Write Down All Your Ideas
The brainstorming part can be the most fun part! This is where you jot down everything that comes to mind. No filter, no judgment – just your thoughts.
Spend some time thinking about what you would like to write. If you’re uncertain where to begin, consider the following questions:
- What kind of articles do you enjoy reading best?
- What are your favorite bloggers writing about?
- What kind of information is missing that you would love to share?
Don’t get too hung up on exact topics or keywords at this point. If you need to overcome fear of perfectionism, now is the time to focus on that.
Allow yourself 1-2 weeks to brainstorm and write down as many blog topics and ideas that come to mind. This will help you create a plan for writing and posting.
Deliver Valuable Content
A Google search on “how to write a blog post” will yield you millions of results in a nanosecond. And it’s true. There are many tips for structuring, organizing, and optimizing your blog posts.
But at the end of the day, quality is king. You need to provide content people want to read. If you can do that, the rest will fall into place.
Focus on your value first. After a while, you can focus on all the other nuances (marketing, SEO basics, etc.)
Commit to Consistency
If you want to create a dynamic blog, you need to devote time and attention to it. By 2020, research suggests there will be nearly 32 million bloggers in the United States. That said, most of those blogs will never get read.
To rise to the top, you need to be consistent with your blogging. This means setting aside designated time every day to focus on your writing, marketing, and web design.
There isn’t a perfect answer to “how much” you need to do. More isn’t always better, but consistency is always best.
Connect With Other Bloggers
Although it may seem counterintuitive, networking with other like-minded bloggers can improve your blog – and your reputation.
Building relationships with other bloggers can open valuable opportunities including:
- guest posting
- collaboration posts
- referrals for services/products
- interpersonal connection
Moreover, many bloggers are eager to share their ideas with new bloggers. Send out a friendly email and introduce yourself.
