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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
