Like every profession, blogging has its few tricks you need to know before you venture into it, I started my journey about four years ago about my final year in the university and I wasn’t so consistent as I was now because as much as I loved what I was doing, I had to learn a few tricks before I got to the point I am now.
so I’ll share a few tips on what you need to know before you start a blog of your own.
Have an Idea on What your Blog would be about:
Do you want to talk about fashion, food, inspirational post.. this is the basis of a successful blog before you land in deep waters half way
Have a means to blog: Laptop, Phone etc.
You need a means of communication, I do advise
I find people in professional courses like Medicine less prone to having a blog, but hey I know a blogger Cassie Daves who does an amazing job mixing both.
Have a Blog you can use as an example:
you have to have a blog model,
Get the necessary Equipment needed for your Kind of Blogging:
for my kind of blogging a camera is needed for some who would want to go into the inspirational post, a journal would be necessary, but don’t we all need these things, but you would need some kind of equipment relevant to what you do, you just need basic information about it
There are other bloggers who have been there before you, and what you need to know for further clarification, you can get from them. you know the cliche “been there done that” yea it will apply
great advices especially the ask other blogger one. I have learned a lot just be asking others and sometimes people are afriad to ask. I have had my fair share of bloggers not responding to my emails with fair questions but it is all good.
Hey, great advice and very simple. I'm less than a year into my own journey and I keep finding that I have a lot to learn other than a simple 'love for writing'.
Thanks for making yourself accessible. I'll be sure to contact you with some questions asap.
