Secrets of Successful Blogging

First Know, Why did You Start Blogging


People blog for many reasons. Originally, I started my blog at the end of 2017 as an author platform.
But as time passed, I realized my blog provided much more than an author platform and it wasn't all about the numbers. Blogging served a different and more profound purpose. I would even say that it's changed the way I look at and live my life.

That's why if you're thinking about starting a blog, I'd highly recommend it. That is if you're blogging for the right reasons.

Secrets of Successful Blogging


If you're starting a blog to get rich or even to eke out a living, well, don't count on it. Monetizing a blog is super hard these days. In fact, after three years, I'm still not making money from my blog. By the way, don't believe all the hype from people selling online courses that try to convince you blogging is a great way to make passive income. Make no mistake, writing and promoting a blog is a ton of work. There is nothing passive about it.

In fact, it's so easy to get frustrated when you first start a blog. As a technically-challenged person, I had to learn WordPress. Then, I spent a lot of time promoting my blog and trying to find an audience. Something else I knew little about. As with most bloggers, I quickly became obsessed - and depressed - with the numbers and how many visitors, subscribers, and Facebook followers I had on any given day. Turns out building up readership for a blog takes a LOT of time, effort, and patience.

So Why Blog?

Some people may disagree with me, but I think blogging shouldn't just be about making money, drumming up business, gathering a huge following, chasing fame, or trying to sell books.

Blogging can serve as a creative channel to voice ideas, thoughts, opinions, beliefs, and feelings. On top of that, writing a blog provides a wonderful opportunity to inspire and touch the lives of other people in a positive way.

How Blogging Changed My Life


My blog has certainly seen me through many ups and downs these past few years.

Yes, I love reading, which provides a welcome respite from my troubles, but writing is my real escape, outlet, and passion. When I write, I become so focused, my problems fade away for a while, giving me a much-needed break. In fact, if you're truly a writer, believe me, it is a life-long addiction!

The process of putting my thoughts and feelings into writing has brought me comfort as well as help me relive happy moments.writer

As I've written about my life, my blog helped me think about what's important to me and determine if my life is headed in the right direction.

Since I can't write about every event, idea, thought, and feeling, blogging provides a sort of filter, clarifying my life. My blogs have helped me understand what is most meaningful to me. I've discovered along the way that sometimes it's the simplest moments that make me the happiest.

Embracing Creativity


Secrets of Successful Blogging

As a professional writer, my blog gives me wonderful creative freedom to express myself. Not to pop anyone's balloon, but writing sounds more glamorous than it is in reality. For most of the past 2 years, I've written articles on subjects that magazines, newspapers, publishers, and clients choose for me.

The point is, my blog is my passion. I write on subjects I'm interested in and feel passionate about and hope my audience will enjoy as well. My blog allows me to stretch as a writer, explore, experiment, and try new things

So, those are some of the ways blogging has changed my life. But, as I mentioned earlier
