6 Questions Which You Should Ask Yourself Before Starting a Blog

Share on Pinterest

Nowadays, writing a blog has become very well-known among a large group of web users. Blogging is a Social Platform which joins many Internet users together with a large block of info. Blogging is known as the father of Social networking media, which is very well-known these days. Blogging is not only done to discuss details, but also to promote business & services among web users.

Blog writers all over the globe are writing blogs adequately to provide all kind of information on news, and up-dates to the users all over the world. There are many individual blogs that are intended to discuss personal information, like for instance a celebrity blog is intended to connect with fans across the globe. Creating blog is so simple nowadays and everyone has a blog. Just because everyone has a blog does not mean everyone should have a blog.

Managing an effective blog can be very difficult, traumatic, and tedious, but it can also generate many advantages. Before starting a blog I think you should ask yourself some questions.


What are your Goals or Objectives for Your Blog?

It is important to ask yourself the purpose for starting a blog. Many people begin writing a weblog because everyone is writing a blog or because they think by starting a blog and writing two-posts they are going to become a popular blog writer instantaneously. Those are not the factors to begin blogging!

You must have an obvious purpose that what exactly will be the objective of writing a blog. If you fall short in identifying the objective or purpose for your Blog, you will never become an effective blog writer. Establishing the right objectives will help you to observe the improvement of your Blog. The objectives are determined by the topic that your Blog will be based on.

Do I have Time to Manage My Blog?

A perfect blog writer must have the plan for publishing content in his/her blog. It relies on the topic about which you are publishing in your Blog. As soon as you have the newest up-dates on the topic, publish it and make it available for your viewers. You must take care of the point that you will only publish material which is exclusive, clean and not duplicated from any other resource. Search engines are  very tight in their plan of prohibiting those Blogs which have duplicated material from other resources. If you embrace such methods you may get your Blog prohibited completely by Google.

ReadBlogging needs Time: Do you have it ?

Writing a blog and keeping a blog is not as simple as it looks. It is a big liability especially if you have strategy on having an effective blog. It is essential to have enough a time to set aside for your Blog. I have seen way too many times blogs that are set up and are soon discontinued. It needs a time to create an excellent and original post. If you do not have time to blog it may be in your best attention to just not start a blog.

Keep in mind; you do not have to publish daily. It is your website and you have the right to set your routine. But being constant is very essential in the blogosphere. It does not occur instantaneously.

Whom do you want to reach with your blog?

Now, this should be fairly obvious; for example, if you have a company that offers Barbie items, then your prospective viewers are Barbie toy lovers, right? However, I’ve seen a ton of sites out there that obviously believe search engines are mind readers: they should know that when you say one factor, you actually mean another.

Search engines are not mind readers, they’re generally robots or like computer applications, and Google need a bit of help to discover your blog or website and link your related customers/audience to your Blog.

That’s where targeting your audience comes in. To make a retrievable/search able Blog, you must know who you are writing for. Your viewers know what they want and what they are looking for, and you must know what that is before you can provide what they want.

What platform (If a platform at all) do I want to use for my blog?

There are so many excellent platforms out there that create it simple to set up a blog such as WordPress, Joomla as well as many more. But determining on which one to use is very much an individual option. It may be an amazing concept to try to check out all of them and see which one performs best for you. You do not want to be like me and be on a foundation that you are disappointed with and have to shift all your material later.

If you are acquainted with a certain platform it may be best to keep with that. It is very personal decision on which you select but you should do some analysis before determining what is best for you and your Blog. Beginning on a platform that is the first result that you discover on a search engine may not perform for you later on and you may repent the negligence later on.

Can I afford to blog?

Creating blog can have a price. Remember charges such as buying a Host and renewing it yearly as well as per month may be too much for your pocket-money. These are not essential to begin a blog but are suggested. Before beginning a blog make sure you and your pocket-money can manage it.

How will I manage my blog’s progress?

After getting through all such specialized stuff, finally your website is ready to Publish. But, releasing blog does not mean that you have done it all. You need to have a right set of plan for the marketing of your blog by various methods. You can have high quality back links for your blog by posting it in internet article directories and social bookmarking sites. You can also use social media promotion programs like Facebook, twitter etc for the promotion of your blog in order to increase visitors and traffic.

ReadManaging More than one Blog is Really Very Hard

Writing a blog is an incredibly fulfilling encounter and I am excited that I am still blogging these days but just like anything it is not for everyone. The key aspect is to blog about something you are enthusiastic about and for me I am doing just that. And that is what is so excellent about the blogging.

Finally I would like to say that you should have a clear picture in mind about each and every aspect before starting a blog. If you will be able to collect and manage all the mentioned things then you need to worry about much.

Blogging is a complete research of mind as well market. If you have done all the things perfectly then you are going to see shining future in blogging ahead.
