Gosh, I love blogging but you are right to be wondering if you should start a blog. There is more to it than you know.
Take this “Should I Start a Blog Quiz” below:
Answer the questions with a Yes or a No. Then add up all the “Yeses” and all the “Noes.”
- Can you write well enough? If not, do you know someone that will regularly edit your articles for you?
- Are you passionate about your blog topic?
- Do you think that you can write about that topic a lot?
- If you are just blogging as a hobby or casually, are you Ok with possibly not making any money?
- If you are blogging for money, do you have the patience to keep going when initially you might see no results? (Now if it’s unsuccessful for a very long time I’ve given up on some blogs. But that’s just me. It’s a personal choice how long you want to wait for it to be successful. No one should tell you that one. Sometimes initially you just need to be patient with it. That’s all I’m trying to say. Don’t give up too easy.)
- Are you willing to learn more about your topic?
- Are you willing to learn the process of blogging? It’s more than just writing. It’s not hard. You just have to be willing to keep learning something new in order to take your blog to the next level.
- Do you have enough time to maintain your blog with articles, updates and other blog related tasks? You just need to find some time each week to do it, but that’s up to you.
- If you are using a free account to blog, are you willing to research if using a free account is the best option for you? For example, because it’s free you don’t own it and it’s possible for it to be deleted or restricted in how you earn money.
- If you don’t want to use a free account to blog, are you willing to spend some money to get your own blog?
Think about any other questions that you might have and add it up as well. Now add up all the “Yeses” and all the “Noes.” The yeses are the positives to blog and the noes are the negative on if you should blog.
Ultimately it’s up to you, but some research is always helpful. This is just a quiz and not meant to turn you off or on. It’s more to make you aware of blogging.
Or maybe you are just wondering “What kind of blog should I start?”
The answer is always chose a topic that you like and never one that’s only there to earn money. I did this once and it became very difficult to write about a topic that I didn’t like. Plus it showed and I didn’t earn money! LOL! 🙂
So it’s very important to choose a blog topic that you really like to write about, because you will be doing it a lot.
In conclusion, I wish you all the best in your blogging journey! So have you decided if you are going to start a blog? Let me know in the comments below.
