Recently I’ve been asked to write a post on creating a blog and Instagram feed that follows a theme; it was extremely flattering and mind-boggling. With some imposter syndrome and doubt, I purchased my first ever blogging bundle [Genius Blogger Toolkit 2020] for a better way to explain the process and all. (If you want to hear more about this, you should tune in to this month’s newsletter…) Looking for credibility and wisdom, I searched to find the right words for it all; how do you create.
All the free trials and eCourses could make you dizzy, but the most important thing to keep in mind is your why. The reason why you want to start a blog is unique to you and one of the most important elements of beginning a blog. One of the most helpful tools for helping me find my why is Ubersuggest; a keyword search tool. Neil Patel’s newsletters are extremely helpful to bloggers of any expertise and his website is filled with tools to help bloggers flourish.
Here’s what you really need to know to start a blog:
Write about what you care about.
Do what feels right to you.
Follow accounts who post content you enjoy and post content you enjoy.
Create when you are inspired. Feeling writers/creators block? There’s inspiration all around us!
That’s it. No big paragraphs, separated by fancy headings to further analyze those words. As with many things in life; it truly is that simple. If you discover after a while that writing isn’t your thing or you have other tools you’d like to explore creating with, that’s okay! Quitting your blog to do something more fun for you is part of the process. Maybe you enjoy filming videos or painting more; maybe your blog is simply a compilation of all the things you create: art, music, videos, podcasts, etc.
