Some misconceptions about blogging you must be aware of

  • Blogging belongs to the jobless: A big lie. Do you know that even the world’s richest and most popular blog? See this https://www.incomediary.com/top-20-bloggers/. But I also want to let you know that Bill Gates blogs (Gatesnotes.com), Barack Obama blogs (like here https://barackobama.tumblr.com/), Mark Zuckerberg blogs. You should also know that almost all successful companies have and make huge money from blogging.
  • Blogging is unprofitable. Nope. Blogging is a very profitable venture although many people don’t know this. And there are many ways you can make money blogging including starting new blogs, developing them, and later selling them (at MotionInvest, Flippa etc) for some big profits. If you didn’t know, let me tell you that a blog can cost up to thousands if not billions of dollars. Go to huffpost.com and check it current value. The only challenge is to transform your blog into a profitable business.
  • In order to blog, you have to be good at writing/publishing. False. You don’t have to be perfect. As long as you have the content, you can craft your ideas and have people organize them for you in a manner suitable for your readers/audiences. Thanks to platforms like Upwork and Fiverr.
  • Blogging is hard: There has never been a time when blogging is so easy. You see, with Google Analytics, you can even tell what kinds of content your clients are looking for, the demographic characteristics of your readers/audiences –I mean everything. So, that helps you to create relevant content and target the right people. Blogs are also easy to start and run.
  • Blogging is all about writing and publishing content
  • Results will come overnight –Never. Your blog will demand your time and dedication to build and grow it. If you want to run a blog as a business (not a hobby), you have to spend on it.
  • A blog is too expensive or too cheap to run –Not true. The amount of money to spend starting a blog largely depends on the strategy to you take. You can start a blog with as low as $0. At the same time, you can start a blog with over $1000.
