Hey! I hope you are feeling okay! I have a question. Why are you blogging? This is an important question to ask yourself before you start blogging and after. You need to ask this to know what direction you’re going in and what are your future goals. None of my blogging tips will work for you unless you have a clear idea of what direction you’re going in.
Ask yourself is your blog for others or yourself ? Is it a blog that you use as a personal journal just for yourself, or a blog that is catered towards inspiring or teaching others? Is it a business blog? Do you want to monetize it one day? Knowing the answers to these questions will make Your blogging experience much better for you and your readers.
If people are merely eavesdropping on an personal journal blog that’s fine. With this you don’t have to worry about if people follow, like, or comment. So my tips really aren’t for you because you are dancing to the beat of your own drum. And if you teach or inspire someone along the way, then great!
If you are trying to have a blog catered towards teaching, helping, or inspiring others, then my tips are more for you. This can be considered a hobby blog.
Because if you are trying to inspire, help, or teach anyone, you have to take into consideration how the readers feel somewhat. You have to care if they are engaged or not. You have to care if you are reaching your targeted crowd. You don’t have to be unauthentic and write just for them. But you have to learn to balance out your needs as well as your readers needs. Because don’t forget, you are trying to reach out to help. Don’t forget that your readers are supposed to be your friends, and not just readers. And you would care about how your friends feel, right? 🤷🏾
And lastly, if you are working towards a business blog, and you want to eventually monetize your blog, then my tips are definitely for you.
With this choice of blogging your readers feelings are of up most importance. Their feelings are even more important than your own feelings, actually. Because not only are they your friends, but now they are your clientele. You want them to have the best user experience on your blog as possible. You want it to be as informing as possible. You are providing a service. You want to have a constant readership. So yes, monetization does contain some sacrifice of your own personal blogging enjoyment. It’s not totally ruined, but indeed reduced. So if the personal integrity of your blog is important to you, monetization is not for you!
So I really want you guys to think about this. What category are you in? I really want my tips to go to those who can use them the most. I want them to be beneficial to you, not a nuisance or discouragement. But, if my tips are not for you, I would love for you to join me for my whatever Weekend! That’s where I talk about numerous subjects that I and hopefully you will enjoy. This is on Saturday and Sunday. Hope this tip helped.
Just tips and stuff!🤷🏾
