Blogging Is So Old! (That’s Exactly Why You Need To Do It!)

By Paul Santiago

I know what you’re thinking, “blogging is old news and it’s too much work!”

You’re right, it’s old but it doesn’t mean it’s not effective and yes, it’s work but you’re running a business, right?

Your business needs a blog and here’s why…

How blogging works

Blogging can be described as an online journal in which you share your thoughts about specific topics for others to read online. You can write posts as often as you want and at any time of the day. Blog posts are displayed in reverse chronological order with the latest blog post displaying first.

Blogs can be written from a personal perspective such as what you do on a daily basis. Many popular blogs are written like a magazine informing readers of the latest trends. There is a blog for almost any topic you can imagine as well as a variety of authors. You can find blogs written by stay-at-home moms to blogs maintained by large corporations.

Benefits of blogging

There are several benefits of blogging, one of the most popular being monetary benefits. Many personal bloggers find it is very therapeutic while others blog specifically to earn income. If you are the latter, there are several ways to earn income from blogging. It isn’t as easy as it seems or else everyone would be doing it, however, with a little guidance, everyone has the opportunity to earn a study income from blogging.

You can have a blog up and running within minutes thanks to free blogging services such as WordPress and Blogger. It is wise to purchase your own domain name and host your blog with a web hosting provider. This way you will have full control over your blog and aren’t under the restrictions of the free services. However, if you are just starting out, the free blogging services will work just fine until you learn the ropes. You can still earn income with those types of blogs until you can set-up a blog on your own.

Quick blogging tips

It is fine to have a personal blog where you write about your own personal experiences. In order to earn a decent income, you should definitely look into running multiple blogs on various topics. I, for one, am running multiple blogs namely “Karaoke Hacks” and of course, this one. It is difficult to earn income from a personal blog unless your writing and topics are really compelling. As noted earlier, try to set-up your own blog with a web hosting provider as well as using your own domain name.

Don't leave money on the table

There are many bloggers earning a full-time income from their blogs, some in the thousands of dollars per month! You can learn how they do it by researching their techniques.
