Today is your day.
You’re off to start blogging
All the great things you will say.
You have fingers on your keyboard.
You have words in your head.
Great posts abound you
They will like what they read.
You are a blogger. And you know what to write.
And you are the one who will word it just right.
Have you been sitting on the fence thinking about starting a blog? Maybe you think it’s not worth your time, or you are not a good enough writer to write a weekly blog. Me too, but give me a minute, and let me tell you what I’ve experienced as a blogger.
The Path to Better Writing
My background is in engineering, not writing. I am that odd engineer who enjoys writing. And that desire has kept me at the keyboard, honing my craft. Every week and every day has made me a better writer. It all goes back to that saying we all learned as kids, “Practice Makes Perfect.”
The Path to Happy Readers
Writing a blog post every week will give your returning readers something new to read. Think about it: how often do you go to a site to read the same thing repeatedly, not very often. Your website visitors need something new to read, too.
The Path to More Traffic
Search engines love updated websites. A website that is consistently updated will rank higher in a Google search.
It’s not about what it is – it’s about what it can become.Dr. Seuss
The Path to Guest Blogging
Guest blogging is fun! I have had the privilege to write posts for a few other websites. I only sent an email to the website owner asking to be considered for a guest post. It’s that’s easy. The only stipulation is that they wanted to see some of my blog posts. So, keep writing and posting to your blog. I have also had people come to me asking me to write on their site. So, it goes both ways. Keep generating excellent content on a consistent basis.
The Path to Other Job Opportunities
Suppose you are looking to establish yourself as a professional blogger. In that case, you will need to keep your blog updated on a regular schedule. Baseball players play ball, chefs cook, and bloggers blog. Think of your blog as a second part of your resume. It is a great place to point to so potential employers can review your work. Look at it as your portfolio. Keeping your website up-to-date and professional-looking will eventually lead to paying assignments.
The Path to Places Unknown
All I can talk to you about are the roads I’ve been down. When you start your blog or blogging/writing career, other opportunities will come your way. The one thing that we will both have in common is that we started our blog and did something with it.
I know you can do it.
And you will succeed.
One hundred and ten percent guaranteed.
Now fingers on the keyboard
Start typing instead
To get those great thoughts
Out of your head. You are a blogger
This I do know
That once you start blogging
Oh the (Blogging) places You’ll Go!!!
