This is a question that most everyone that wants to start a blog, wonders about. Unless you already have something you are determined to blog about, you get to pick anything that makes you want to share. Blogging is a way of keeping a diary, but at the same time it is like publishing a magazine. It is a mix of passion and business in one.
Ideally, your blog should be about a topic that you know a lot about, passionate about, or want to learn more about. The reason I say this is because when you are in one of those categories, you will not have a hard time coming up with new ideas for content. It will be easy for you to stay on track and publish new posts on regular basis. This is a general rule, but there are exceptions to it, so don't let it be a stumbling block for you.
As I said before, you can blog about anything, everyone has a story. This is why, you should not concern your self about what to write, but rather make sure that you write on regular basis. Write about your day, about situations at work, crazy people you encounter, something exciting happening in your life. Humans are an interesting creation... they are very curious about other people's lives. If they can watch them on TV, they will, if they can read about them in a book, they will, and if they can read about it on a blog, they definitely will. The only requirement is don't make them wait for the next post, publish regularly, so they know when they need to come read your new post.
There are so many Momy-blogs on the Internet, and they have huge following and the owners are raking in good money with it. There are also daddy-blogs and fishing blogs, car blogs, baby blogs, marketing blogs, and blogging blogs. Anything you can imagine, there is a blog about it.
Here are the steps you need to concern your self with:
- Write the blog posts REGULARLY (every other day, on Wednesdays, every day, or whatever works for you)
- Share them on Social sites, like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest
- Comment on other popular related blogs
- Find a related forum and be active on it. Answer questions and write posts on there.
- Once you are a familiar face on the popular related blogs, you can ask the owner if you can write a guest article for them and get a link back to your site.
This is all it takes to grow a powerful organic blog, that Google will love to sent traffic to. There are other things you can do to grow the blog faster, and we will get into this in later posts. it is not important at this point.
"What to write?", is not important, as long as it is quality content, just make sure you write regularly.
If you have any questions, please write them in the comments and I will do my best to answer as promptly as I can.
