We didn't plan on writing anything else about blogging after releasing Who The Hell Reads Your Blog Anyway? We don't enjoy blogging about blogging, because, well, normally blogs about blogging are banal and vapid and they simply don't interest us (Corbett Barr's Think Traffic being the exception that shows the guideline). Heck, we don't even review numerous blogs, but ...
Reasons You Should Blog
Today we were motivated to research and write this essay after checking out Joshua Becker's 15 Reasons I Think You Should Blog, in which essay he talks about 15 wonderful reasons you ought to begin a blog site. "Why" being the key word here. In shorts, he talks about the function of blogging, not just the "how to" facets. That's exactly what all these various other blogs about blogging seem to miss out on, they miss out on the function-- the why.
How to create a blog
So Becker provided you 15 reasons why you need to begin a blog site, and we're visiting show you ways to start one, step-by-step, based upon our personal experience, however prior to we give you that sort of in-depth instruction-- which could literally conserve you the hundreds of hours of wasted time-- we wish to give you some excellent reasons you must not start a blog. (Keep in mind that these reasons are simply our viewpoints and we do not pretend to provide them up as some sort of collection of empirical blogging maxims.).
Money. You should not start a blog site to earn money. We should get that out of the way initially. If your primary objective is to change your full-time earnings from blogging, ignore it. It does not work that way. Do you think that Jimi Hendrix got his first guitar so he could "support his income"? No, he didn't. Rather, he did it for the love of it, for the happiness and fulfillment he received, and the earnings came afterwards, much later really.
Now you have a lot of assistance and a bunch of homework (i.e., links to check out), and you understand exactly what you wish to write, you're ready to get started. But you do not have any idea where to start, right? Guess what, neither did we. At all. Literally. We were unaware. We could hardly spell HTML when we started our internet site in 2012.
