So, Do You Want to Write a Blog?

Have you ever thought about writing a blog?

Do you own an online business that you want to promote?

If you do, you can write blog posts about specific topics in your niche/industry. For example, if you are in “fitness” industry, you could write blog posts about exercises, healthy eating, and nutrition tips twice a week.

Want to write books and short stories?

Do you wish to write books and short stories?

There are a lot of frustrated authors who are very skillful in their crafts but find it difficult to find a publisher to publish their work.

Maybe, you could share your stories on your blog – i.e. stories about how you write, what have you done in the past as a writer, how to find an agent, and stories of other writers you have met.

You could include sample of your work online and invite readers to comment on it.

Want to Write about Daily Routine?

Or, maybe you just want to write about your daily life/routine.

While a lot of people really do not care about where you had lunch or what time you got home, many others would be interested to hear stories about best places to visit in your country, best foods to try, and shopping malls that offer great products, among others.

Include a lot of local flavor into your blog posts.

Do not forget to post photos that you took yourself.

It is not only about one person.

So, make sure you invite your readers to comment at the end of each post. Moreover, when someone takes time to comment, please respond them back promptly. This is vital to gain a huge fan following.

Okay, now that you have a blog up.

How Will You Promote Your Blog?
