start a blog and make money

There are literally thousands of blogs online nowadays and in order for you to stand out from the masses, you will need to start a blog that people will actually be interested in and want to read.

If you want to stand out from the millions of blogs online today, then it is absolutely essential and important that you think hard before you launch your blog online.

If you start a blog only because you think that it is the ‘cool’ thing to do or because your chosen blog topic is within a ‘sizzling hot niche’, chances are you can expect to find yourself faced with a few challenges in the future.

It is important to know that being a follower is the quickest way to fail online.

Why? Because by following what someone else is doing you may fail to be true to yourself -hence why you are more likely to experience more writers block, a decrease in motivation and an overall sense of apathy after the rush and excitement of starting a new blog has long gone.

So what are some of the ways to which you can start blogging without putting your readers to sleep or having them lose interest?

Be True to Yourself

If you are planning to start a blog, remember to always be honest, open and transparent – Whatever you do remember to ALWAYS BE YOURSELF. If you try to hide behind a facade that you’ve created (because you think that it is the only way you will succeed online), you risk failing in the long run because you can only play someone that you are not for a very limited amount of time That is of course before people start to call you out on your ”act’ or you tire and exhaust yourself entirely from having to putting up a show!

Find a Topic People Are Interested In and Others Will Be Too

Do not just start blogging about a topic that only very few  select people are interested in. Just because you are interested in writing about the prairie Red Tail Fox, it does not mean that others will be. Find the proper balance between the things people want to read about and what they are actually searching for each and every month, – after all, you do want people to find your blog and read what you have to say! There are a number of tools you can use such as Market Samurai and the free Google Analytics tool in order to find and analyze hot keywords and their corresponding competition levels.

Be Consistent!

Are you one of those people who posts your

blog content once in a blue moon? Do you post every 2 weeks- or worse, do you post your content just once a month? If are inconsistent when it comes to updating your blog on a regular basis, then expect inconsistent results. It is really just that simple. Do not expect to succeed online if you are not willing to work hard towards what you want.  Most people who are unsuccessful online are usually not willing to put in the work required but instead choose to have their heads in the clouds wishing for an overnight success and other ‘set it and forget it’ shenanigans.

Provide Quality

Remember, people love quality and they are more likely to appreciate a well written and structured blog post than a poorly written mess that you may have slapped together in just 10 short minutes. Remember to always structure your blog posts in a way that makes it easy for your readers to navigate and read through your articles. Also remember to spell check and structure your sentences in the proper way. Many successful blogs deliver quality with every written post and with any content produced.

Provide Value

When people feel as if you are offering them something that they can use and they feel as if it is something that will help them to better themselves or their craft, you are more likely to gain a loyal readership and your content more likely to be shared in social media websites. If anybody who stumbles across your blog feels as if you are just regurgitating unoriginal, useless information that they can easily find elsewhere, -well then, your blog risks losing its credibility and your content can tank in value.


Develop and Edge and Voice

What are you known for? Is it your controversial voice? your satirical humor? sly sarcasm? free guides ? etc. When you start a blog, it is important to find something to offer your readers that will help you to distinguish and set yourself apart from other bloggers in your area of expertise/niche. Again, do not be afraid to be who you are and then some!

These are just some of the main important things to work on for anybody who want to start a blog and  find success in the already crowded online blogosphere in 2013 and beyond. Starting a blog is easy but creating a successful blog takes hard work, long hours and has its ups and downs just like anything else, relying on overnight success is definitely not realistic and is a quick way to hinder any future success. So get ready to put in work if you have the desire, optimism, drive and determination, you will eventually see your online blogging dreams come true!

    This is an excellent post packed with information that it vital for all bloggers. It’s especially important to be yourself rather than trying to be someone who you think you should be. It’s important to be able to connect with your audience and the easiest way to do that is by being yourself. After all, why make things more difficult than they need be?

  7. Hello Jedith,
    Yaa I’m also satisfy with your points. Today most of people wants to earn money but don’t want to work hard. They just want to get rich in a single night. Obviously consistency is very important, I too have such friends who starts their own blog and post once in a week and then end up complaining about the visits. Plus only Consistency is not enough, your blog should provide the quality content to attract the visitors.
    BTW, Very nice post, cover all the necessary points.
    Thanks for sharing

  8. Hi Jedith,

    Sharing your personal path with all your failures and successes is a great way to succeed online. If you do that “in your own voice” it is even better and faster.
    However, I do think that the most important part is choosing your niche. If you like the niche and it is profitable you will succeed no matter how many mistakes you make.

    Have a nice day

  11. I figure the best way to start a blog is to pick a topic that you’re really passionate about and want to know more about. As you learn your topic you can create content for your website, and you will grow and mature as your blog does. That way, it doesn’t matter the size of your audience/conversion rates etc., you still win.

  16. I just started to write myself truly on common fact of society & environment. Hope to enrich my blog by my own thinking power & write them as well as I find some new topic. You may comment about my blog to tell me that I am on the right path.

  17. Great post Mia! You nailed it! Writing from a place of passion and being yourself is always easier than forcing yourself to produce boring content. Personally I like to mix business with pleasure :-) I like to take boring subjects and zap em’ with some sci-fi ninja comic book mojo LOL!

    Thanks for the suggestions!

  18. To find interest of the people Google’s adword Keyword tool was the best as it it used to tell us clearly what is being search over the internet right now. Unfortunately Google’s keyword tool is no more in use but you can fine its alternative like Mergewords, Wordstream etc to take the find the taste of the people. When you find the topic, start writing unique & quality content about the topic. Great post Mia.

  19. great post here Jedith with some very valid points to implement. Sometimes though people just have to get started, get going, because doing something worthwile is worth doing poorly until you can do it better. It’s all a process, finding your voice, quality and content. Consistency is the key to everything though.

    Great post. Thanks Jedith!

  25. I think this is the perfect guideline for them who all are new to blogging or who all have just started a blog.

    In my opinion when we start a blog the most things are to keep in mind is:

    1. Always write interested things
    2. It needs to be unique and quality
    3. You need to be consistant
    Johnw recently posted…How to communicate and connect with the key decision makers?My Profile

  26. Hi Jedith,

    Nice points, One should first find the topic on which your targeted audience is interested. Then write honest post by researching all essential aspects and publish it. Then do some marketing on social media especially on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ so that your post can get more exposure.

  27. To start a new blog that people will be interested to red, we must first find out the topics in which people are interested. Reading news papers, magazines etc can assist us to find the topics which interests the people more and thus we can start a new blog on that topic.

    Very right words jedith. Its always easy to start something but to maintain the pace
    you have to work in it.
    In Blogging you should be unique and smart.

  53. From own experience: the unique blogs that had success were the ones that i have natural trend to write. You should write about what you know and about what you love. Otherwise you will never be able to gain the trust of your readers.
