So you’re interested in starting a blog, huh? Wanna learn how it can help you break into the career that you dream about? Maybe you want to find out how it can build your business? Or you want to become the next great food, style, fitness or DIY blogger? Well, I’m not a genie with a crystal ball so I can’t predict your future. But I can tell you all of the wonderful and amazing things that have happened to me since starting a blog.
When I Started Blogging, Great Things Happened
Like me, I’m sure you are very busy and juggle many things in your professional and personal lives. I have been blogging off and on for about 5 years. When I started blogging, I wasn’t committed to it because I was still in grad school and having babies. Honestly, I really didn’t have time to focus on it. I was kinda doing it just because I thought it was fun. But then I had some life changes which prompted me to start blogging seriously. I began blogging with a purpose about 3 years ago. Once I got serious about blogging, amazing things began happening to me. Here are just a few of the wonderful opportunities I have experienced because of blogging:
- Appeared on several local news stations discussing technology
- Featured and quoted in Redbook magazine numerous times
- Quoted by major news outlets for my expertise (Fox News, The Today Show Tech)
- Participated in high fashion photo shoots in New York City
- Got paid speaker and panelist gigs for conferences and workshops
Starting a Blog in 2 Quick Steps
If you are reading this blog post, I am going to assume that you are starting a blog for a specific purpose. Maybe you want to attract more business to your physical store. Or maybe you want to be a mommy blogger who earns thousands of dollars per month via your blog. Whatever the case, it is important to know why you want to blog. But, how to set up your blog and get it started? Well, that’s a whole different story. Many folks out there want to start a blog but they don’t know how to set one up or write a blog post. Well, that’s where I come in. It is my passion to help people start a blog and use it to build their business. Starting a blog doesn’t have to be a chore or something to dread. Let me help you.

Step 2 – Figure Out What to Blog About
Next, let’s figure out the topic of your blog. If you already know what topic your blog cover, that’s great. But if you are not exactly sure what to blog about, below is a list of the most popular blog topics on the Internet.
Now that list is great, but blogging will be hard for you if you write about health or relationships. The topics in the above list are too broad. Therefore, you must narrow down your topic and find a niche or aspect of your topic to write about on your blog. Remember, I’m here to help so I’ve written tutorials to help you find your niche.
