Start Blogging: That’s it !
If you are thinking that now I will start to give you the same old definition of “what blogging is?” then you are wrong. Because It has already been discussed thousand times in different blogs. So no more information overflow !
Here, the main objective behind this post is to bring out the blogger inside you. Yes the blogger inside you. From its evolution to this day, the entire scope & prospect of blogging has been increased a lot. In the very beginning blogging was just a form to express your thoughts in web.
But today blogging is not only a form to express your feelings or thoughts but it’s an entire industry a profitable business if anyone really is passionate about.
And you know, what the biggest advantage of blogging is ? Anyone from any background with their domain knowledge can start their own blog.
But there is still some misconception that blogging is mostly for Techies. It’s not completely wrong because as there are lots of technical things that you need to look after, so some sought of technical knowledge is always an added advantage. But that’s not all.
So it’s the main point of discussion in this post. Suppose you are not from technical background, then can you start and run your blog successfully?
Read this article to know more.
Blogging has mainly two sides. One is Technical and the other is Non Technical.
Your Blog’s design, development, SEO and managing each and every process fall in technical side. But nowadays all these services are available from different companies or professional individuals.
So you need to spend some amount of money to avail those services. Here I am discussing all scopes that you can consider.
If you are just starting then obviously your budget is not so high, I can understand that. Even if I assume that you have a huge money to spend. Then also I will ask you why? Start small grow gradually, then climbing up the ladder will be more meaningful. Isn’t it?
So if you are concerned about budget, then don’t worry in these days there are many great On-line Marketplaces or Crowd Sourcing sites are available. From your blog’s logo, to theme design to entire blog setup all services you can get according to your budget.
There is one more option if you have any friend who has knowledge on these like web design, development, seo etc. then you can ask him/ her for a help and in exchange you can offer a credit for his/ her awesome work in your blog’s footer.
If you think that at first you want to sharp your blogging skills then want to take professional approaches that’s also perfectly all right. There are popular free services for blogging like WordPress.com, Google Blogger etc. are available, using any of these great service you can start blogging from today. Give a try.
So do you still think that setting up your blog is a big problem?
Now I am coming to another vital side, which is Non Technical. Means the Editorial aspect.
Non Technical side:
It is the next most important thing for which your blog will be recognised in the future. If you can carry it properly.
Because everything is important like your blog’s design, seo etc. But who will visit your blog if there is hardly any content. People generally visit blogs to get valuable information not only to see the blog’s design.
Design gives a great visual pleasure and lot’s of other advantages from User Experience’s perspective but only based on design you can’t get regular readers. Because do you visit any blog everyday just to see its design? I don’t think so.
So why the others will? So put one thing in your mind clearly whatever it is but ultimately it is your writing/ blogging for which your blog is.
And writing regularly need a great practice and discipline.
Most of the blogs dried out after some weeks or months for scarcity of content. Let me give you an example, a river looks beautiful, until water is flowing but the day flow of water in the river stops gradually oneday the river dried out.
The same thing occurs for a blog if you stop writing content on a regular basis.
You can check one of my previous post, on getting fresh ideas for blogging. There you will find different ways of getting regular ideas.
One more vital point I want to add in this post.
If you have that well established conception that you need to be a great writer for blogging. Then immediately change your conception.
Here I am telling you why. It’s true that, the way you write matters a lot but writing is a craft which will be improved as much as you write. There is no extraordinary way to become a writer. It’s all about how simply you convey you thoughts to your readers. We all love simplicity.
So remember people will start to love your blog if they find that simplicity and friendliness in your approach of writing.
Forget that you are writing. Just take your blogging as another conversation. When you chat or discuss with your friends do you always talk in serious tone? Then why are you self creating pressure when you are writing.
Simply convert your random thoughts in the form of writing. Then see the magic.
In web all of your readers are your friends so open up and just start the conversation and it will automatically roll on.
So these are the two most vital aspect of blogging. So just start it without much thinking.
Happy Blogging 🙂
Note: These are my personal opinion.
