Vital Questions To Ask Before Starting A Blog

So, you are thinking about starting a blog. Congratulations! It’s a great way of earning a few extra pounds - and it might even turn into a full-time business. However, before you get started, there are a few things you need to ask yourself.

In today’s guide, I’m going to reveal five of the most important questions you should ask, as creating a blog from scratch. I'll also go through some suggestions on how to get the right answers. Read on to find out more - and start your blogging experience with a bang.

What’s it all about?

Think about your favourite blogs for a moment. There’s a good chance you will be able to tell people what it is about in a single, simple sentence. It’s important to be able to do this with your blog, too. You want people to know instantly what you are about, and what they can expect. You don’t want to blog about ‘anything and everything’, as your audience will be too mixed to focus on. Stick with a few simple subjects around the main thrust of an idea. So, if you want to create a mom blog and love cooking, you could make your blog about recipes for busy moms or something similar.

Who am I talking to?

The most successful blogs know exactly who their primary audience is. They communicate with them in terms they understand, and speak the same language. Knowing who your ideal target is will help you with everything from the design to the content of your site. This guide from quicksprout.com might help.

What are my targets?

Goals are vital in any business, and blogging is no different. If you just build a website and mess around all the time with no structure in place, your chances of success will be limited. Set definite goals and split them up into shorter, simpler tasks that you can complete in less time. Take things one step at a time, too. Yes, it'd be good to have a million followers on your blog every day. But, it’s going to take a time to get there. Try planning to reach 100 subscribers in your first month, then 500 the next. Growing things this way will help you work out your voice and who your audience is.

How do I build it?

Anyone can build a blog these days - but few can build a good one. If you have no experience, there are templates available online that can work for you at the early stages. However, as this reviewby makeawebsitehub.com suggests, it can still be a tricky experience. If you don’t have the time - or skills - then it is also worth hiring a web developer or designer to create your site. It will look much more professional, and can often be worth the money.

How much time can I afford on this?

Finally, blogging will take up a lot of your time - particularly in the early stages. You are goi9ng to spend a lot of hours filling it up with content, ironing out kinks, and finding out where your audience is. If you can’t commit, then blogging can still be fun - but you won’t enjoy a lot of success.

  1. Passion, dedication and perseverance - the crucial things needed. So many nice blogs, so many did not last very long. Sad.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
