You have an idea or hobby and think you want to share it with more than just your friends and family who could really careless about your interest. You decide that the place to share your hobby should be online. When sharing online you reach more than just those people you see face to face. After starting a blog audience becomes world wide.
Blogs are created for many reasons. I created my first blog in 2009. The topic of my blog at the time was one of my hobbies; couponing. Fast forward to now, I have a pretty successful blog about a totally different topic. But my blog now reflects me as a whole person, all of my interests and hobbies. I love to share my life with others online across the United States and around the world.
You can start a blog about whatever topic you would like. Some people start a bog to share their hobbies with the world. Others start a blog to help market their brand or product. If they are trying to brand themselves, they start a blog to prove their knowledge and skill level and to stand as an expert in their field. Another reason someone starts a blog is simply a way to connect with their family members and loved ones. Their immediate family may live across the country or even on the other side of the world. A blog helps them stay connected even though many miles keep them apart.
If you are ready to start a blog there are many properties online that you can create content on depending on the type of information you want to share or blog about. You can start a traditional blog like I did where you are creating content to share in a dedicated website. To help make the setup easier you can utilize Blogspot or WordPress to start your blog. If you want to post something with less actual words you can micro or insta blog. For this fast pace blogging you can use Instagram, Vine, Twitter or even Facebook. Maybe you just want to be in front of the camera and create vlogs. You may thing it is simple to ust sit in front of the camera and record, but its not that easy and you will also have to edit the video before uploading it to YouTube.
The decision to start a blog can be an easy one. Actually starting the blog can be the hurdle.
