We have tons of people who ask us how we got started blogging. So here is a formula, of sorts, for what we did.
Our Formula For Blogging
- Start out by observing what other blogs are doing. Read other great blogs in an area that you are interested in. Check out our resources page for some of the blogs we read.
- Set a goal to learn about blogging. Our goal was to take three months to learn all we could about blogging. This included reading articles, watching YouTube videos, listening to Podcasts and buying courses. Decide if you really want to Blog. Once you spend a few months learning about blogging you will learn a lot about what it takes to be a successful blogger. You will also begin to realize what you don’t know and what you need to learn. For us, learning a new skill that closely relates to sharing our RV experiences seemed like a perfect fit. But blogging requires discipline, knowledge, and vision to be successful. It’s a long term endeavor.
- Get your website up and running. You’re really not blogging until your site is ready for you to begin creating and posting your articles. We took over a month to get our site designed and up and running. We use WordPress as our blogging platform. There are tons of great learning materials on this subject alone.
- Begin writing content and populating your blog site with articles. Take your time and create great content that is detailed and in depth.
Look at blogging as a marathon and you will enjoy the journey. If you are more of a sprinter who likes to try new things and then move on, then blogging probably isn’t for you.
Most of all have fun sharing your knowledge and experience to add value to other peoples’ lives.
