Blogging Tip: Teach a SkillπŸ‘· πŸŽ¨

Hello. I want to give a blogging Tip. Some of you may be blogging, but not sure what to blog about. Teaching a skill is a great idea if you just want to help people, or you want to start a business blog. We all have some sort of skill or knowledge about something. Whether it be painting, knitting, sculpting, fixing cars, cooking, repairs, and so on.

These days so many people are looking into entrepreneurship ever since the economy has fallen. But, the problem is that learning a trade and going to school has gotten more expensive. So starting a business in the trade that you desire has gotten slimmer. Let me give you an example.

Say that someone has always wanted to sell handmade crafts online. But they are not that educated on this topic. Not everyone has access to free classes, so they are looking for someone that can teach them the skill of crafts. This is where you can come in. You can create a blog on teaching crafts! Don’t be afraid of the oversaturation of YouTube channels and blogs with your same niche. We all have something unique that we can bring to the table. Despite the fact that there’s other people giving out blogging tips, I still get readers who care to read what I have to say.🀷🏾 So why not create your own little online school!? I hope this tip helped!πŸ˜„

Blogging Tip: Religion and Politics πŸŒŽ

Hello! We’re riding smoothly into Tuesday. And I’ve got more tips for you! When blogging, we want to be able to reach as many readers as possible, and of course, we what them to agree with what we have to say. We want our readers to understand our view points. And this is very hard to do when you have chosen controversial blog topics. One of the two most controversial blog topics is anything concerning politics or religion. If you have chosen one of these to be your niche, you can be sure that your blog audience will be growing slow, but hopefully steady. But really slow for sure!

Why? Because think about how much politics and religion divide the world. We have so many religions to choose from, and so many names for God. We have Christian, Muslim, Catholic, Buddhist and the list goes on. Then God is called Jehovah, universe, Allah, and so on. There are also many denominations!

Quora and Google images

With politics you have Republican and Democratic. We fight over who are good presidents and not. We argue over political view points. And it becomes a great big mess! We have been trained to be very tribal and grouped up in sections.

So, I say again, be prepared to not please everyone. Be prepared to only gather like-minded people. Your readers will be very small at first. When it comes to religion and politics, we are very strict and passionate about our beliefs. Saying just one thing that a lot of your readers don’t agree with can lose you readers. Let me give you an example.

Say you have gathered a lot of Christian readers that share your beliefs. Everything is going well until you voice that you agree with same sex marriage. We know very well that this is a hot topic😳! You have 6,000 readers. 2,000 of them just gasped and became angry. Now you have a lot of people unsubscribing, and leaving hateful comments.

Now you have the choice to apologize and take it back, or stand your ground. Either way you’ve lost a bunch of readers.

Or, say you have a strong opinion on gun laws! Perhaps you suggest guns Should be taken away. Now you have a strong debate going on in the comments section, and readers are disappearing! Some readers are mad at you now, and feel like you let them down. Now you feel like politics is something you are afraid to talk about!

You guys notice my disclaimer! πŸ˜‚ You guys are not about to come at me. I just thought this photo showed the true example of the passion of politics. Anyway, so yeah, you can see some blog topics are only for the brave. You have to be willing to have a small crowd, and a strong heart. But that comes with blogging. Don’t take it personal. Well, I hope this tip helped.

Stand strong!🀰🏾

Blogging Tip: πŸ—£οΈSpeaking Your Mind

Happy Motivation Monday! Let’s get going!

The run to our dreams continue! πŸƒπŸƒπŸΎπŸƒπŸƒπŸΎπŸƒπŸƒπŸƒπŸΎ πŸšΆπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸšΆKeep up keep up! πŸ˜‚ Here is a motivational quote for you:

Now that I motivated you some, let’s get back to blogging tips. I want to talk about speaking your mind. When blogging, speaking your mind can be tough. You are giving your honest opinion, and releasing your feelings and experiences. And your readers will take this as being a good thing, or a bad thing. Telling how you really feel can gain you some readers, or run some of them away. When you are in the industry of communicating with the masses, you have to decide if you can handle the backlash and controversy that come with speaking your mind, or keep quiet to satisfy everyone.

So many times I’ve seen politicians, public figures, YouTubers, and celebrities apologize for something they’ve said that some people didn’t agree with, and then take back what they’ve said. If your money comes from the masses liking you, or popularity is important to you, then it’s best to go with the most popular opinion of the masses. Me personally, I’d rather speak my mind, and not be imprisoned by money or popularity. But, being that way isn’t a total loss, because you will still get support from those who are like-minded. So, when blogging, or in any industry where your support comes from the people, it’s important to draw your crowd, and stick with them. Don’t try to please everyone; because you can’t!

When you say something, stick to it. Don’t apologize for how you feel. You can apologize that you may have hurt someone’s feelings along the way, but what you said still stand. And I believe your audience that is like-minded will appreciate you standing your ground and standing in your truth. We all have the right to our own opinion. And we all have the right to accept or reject someone’s opinion or feelings.

Despite the fact of not caring about money or popularity, I still won’t just say anything, though. I do care about people feelings. Some things are just better left unsaid. I’m not going to speak against anybody else’s religion, sexual orientation, race, gender, or lifestyle unless I think it’s harming others. So we should still speak our opinions and truth wisely. Other than that, tell your story and release information that you think will help others.😊 This is what makes a great person no matter what your job is. 😁

Enjoy the week!πŸ˜ƒ

Blogging Tip: WordPress Doesn’t Have to be Your Final Stop πŸ›‘πŸƒπŸ½

Hello! I’m glad a few people left their link in my meet and greet! The rest of you just stopped by and said you like it. You stood me up at my social!😑😭 I thought you were my friends😧. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Just joking, but it was weird🀷🏾. I guess that’s why nobody really does them anymore. I’ve actually had people ask me to check out their blog, or share their info, but then when I put that up, they were nowhere to be found. Boy things get strange!πŸ€”πŸ˜†

Anyway, I want to give this tip that WordPress doesn’t have to be your final stop. Gaining a lot of readership actually can increase faster if you spread yourself out to different platforms. I’ve heard so many people say that their blogging platform actually took off when they created a YouTube channel. That’s where a lot of their readers started to come from.

We are in such a visual world. People love the convenience of being able to just sit back and watch a video, or put headphones on and listen as they work. I know this because I’m guilty of this. I’ve also heard numerous others do this. In such a busy world we live in now, sitting back to read a good story take more time.

We no longer live in these days!

This is our lives now.

A lot of us want quick and convenient. Luckily, I try to still make time to read because I’m really old school. But people like me are not the majority, we are the minority. But it’s not just about convince, it’s also about the up close and personal feel that we get from a video. You really get to feel like you’re getting to know the author.

The process I’ve noticed people doing is creating a blog first, and then creating a YouTube channel. They ask their blogger friends to follow them on YouTube. And the new YouTube viewers they get, they ask them to check out their blog. Since the YouTube viewers have formed a relationship with them, they are more than happy to sacrifice time out their day to read your blog. Do you get it?

I personally wish I had more time to do YouTube videos. I’m also camera shy, but I’m still willing to give it a try. Perhaps in the future I’ll get it done. But, it doesn’t have to stop at YouTube. If you have a following on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and so on, you can direct them to your blog as well. So yeah, this tip can be helpful if you want to speed things up a bit. But you still have to put the work in. The biggest step in all of this is to network, socialize, and form friendships. Because friends are the ones who will be long lasting and willing to commit time to you regardless of your platform. Hope this tip helped.

Good day!.😸
