Before you begin your own blog, remind yourself of the following things and prepare yourself accordingly.
- Clear Vision
You need to have a clear vision about what your blog attempts to deliver to your audience. Is there a gap that you are trying to fill in the society through your blog? Is it a personal or public space? Narrow down your focus to make it sharper and more accurate.
It is very important to be consistent with your posts. Stay active and keep posting. However, that must not make you compromise the quality of your content. Strike a balance. There is no real way of doing it. It is a decision you make for your own space.
- You will not grow popular instantly
If you think you will gain a following very soon or go viral, hold your horses! It doesn’t happen like that. Viral things go out of attention as quickly as they get into it. It will take time to build a loyal fan base and that should not make you question the worth of your blog. It is the general nature of the internet.
- You will meet people who disagree
Your blog promotes an idea. Every idea faces two reactions. One of them is supportive, and other is opposing or maybe even that of indifference. Therefore, even your blog will attract a crowd that does not agree or resonate with your ideas. Remember that it is fine and it does not put your blog into question because this difficulty is not unique to your blog. Every blog has it.
- Practice is the key
You will not understand it in one go. You won’t event understand it after reading long posts on its strategies. But, if your practice posting and keep at it, then you’ll get better at it and understand it. You will learn only by working on your blog. First-hand knowledge and practicality are what blogs are all about. They cannot be theorized.
Best of luck. More power to you!
