I have alot of people that ask where do I begin with my blogging strategy?
Here are some things to keep in mind when beginning your blog :
- What will you blog about? – usually the hardest for most people
- Where do you want your blog to be hosted at? ( I suggest wordpress web hosting options) Wordpress is the most popular and the most customizeable in my opinion. So that is why I suggest doing some research on wordpress web hosting options before beginning.
- How often will you blog? You don’t have to blog everyday to have a successful blog but I would say at least once a week.
- What do you want to get out of blogging? Do you just want to vent, are you looking to make money?, do you just want exposure?
I have been blogging since 2006 and began on a blogging platform Active Rain because I was in the real estate industry. Now I have since started using WordPress since 2008 and still learning everyday. I manage multiple blogs for several people and businesses and unfortunately my personal one seems to be last on the list of priorities. My wordpress web hosting blogs are all on BlueHost which seems to work for me. I know there are several options though to choose from.
