A Jig a Jog, Wanna Start a Blog?

07 Jun

O.K., the title is somewhat corny for sure, but have you ever considered starting a blog? Maybe you do not think you have what it takes. Age does not matter, where you live does not matter, money is not a factor, gender is not important…so what is a factor? What does it take? It takes passion and consistency. Many folks really want to write a blog, but they complain they do not know what to blog about. You should blog about your passion. What do you love? What are good at doing? What is your expertise? What is something you have a good handle on? Brainstorm a little to help you answer this question and begin to lay the groundwork for your blog. Consistency simply means you should post at least once or twice a week if you expect to have any type of following, and you know you want readers. You want readers who not only read your blog, but leave comments for you as well. It is so fun to read the comments that are left.

BlogWriting.Com offers a free blogging pre-course that is well worth your time. You work at your own pace, so you can go as fast or as slow as you want. Now you might be thinking you do not have time for a blogging course, or that you do not need one. You would be wrong. You can always make time for a 10 or 20 minute lesson, and everyone can use a little help improving their blog. After all, there is so much more to blogging that just posting!

Perhaps you have a home business that would benefit from a blog. Blogging is a great way to drive a little business traffic your way. If you want a top-notch blog with many readers and lots of action, you must learn how to create one.

Blogging is also a super way to encourage students to practice their writing skills. Having your own blog is all the rage these days. Knowing others will read what you have written encourages blog writers to give more thought to their writing. It is also a fun way to improve writing skills.

Maybe you have a friend or two that can help you with your blog, if you can actually get them to sit down with you and show the ropes. Friends mean well, but most simply do not have time to teach blogging skills because it takes more than one lesson to learn the ropes. Invest in yourself if you want to reap a great reward.

    I have taken both of their courses, and I highly recommend them! Anyone wanting to blog, or any beginning bloggers should take both courses. The benefits are endless, and working at your own pace is wonderful. Most folks think they can either wing it, or ask friends for help. Winging it is barely getting by. Friends mean well, but they usually don’t follow through in teaching how to blog–mostly because learning to blog takes more than one lesson. If you want to take a “so-so” or “good” blog to a great blog, Blogging 101 is just the ticket.

    So, have you taken the courses?
