How To Become A Blogger: Part 1 #bloggingtips
The first thing I want you to ask yourself is WHY? Why do you want to become a blogger. Is it to make money? Get some writing experience? Share a passion?
If it is just to make money or get free products - then blogging is probably not the best hobby for you.
Blogging takes up time. It is time consuming to write original content. Each post you see from me can take anywhere from 20 minutes to several hours to perfect.
There is lots of background stuff you don't see. You need a basic internet knowledge.
I've made almost no money blogging - there I've admitted it! I've spent some! It cost me a yearly fee to own my domain name. I also pay for a premium membership to PicMonkey to help create great images.
So this week I want you to ask yourself - what are your passions? Do you like to cook? Talk about homeschooling? Are you a crafty-queen?
Are you willing to commit a few hours a week to get the blogging hobby going? This is the minimum time commitment you will need to start a blog that will receive some following.
If your willing to set aside some time each week then your homework is to think of a theme for your blog. Mine is family. I share our life on these pages. Whether it is with a new product we are using or a craft we did.
See you next week for the next installment!
