When I started blogging on Three Li’l Princesses, I was a daily blogger. Seven days a week, without fail. Eventually, life took over and I had to cut back in a bid to find some balance. Oh, and the fact I started a second blog – this one. This month, I’ve taken on the 30 days of blogging to see if I can, once again, blog every day. There’s nothing like having someone to motivate you.
So, as part of the #blogfor30 challenge (follow #blogfor30 on Twitter or join us) and on the back of the Mum Blogging Masterclass, I’m going to share what I know about blogging over the next few weeks (until I run out of things to write, anyway).
So, enough of the brackets. Let’s start at the very beginning; a very good place to start. Sorry, we watched The Sound of Music yesterday. Moving on…
What is a blog, you ask? It’s a page on a website that is updated regularly with content (or blog posts). These blog posts are generally shown in chronological order. The content is different for different types of blogs – from personal journals or diaries(aka“brain dumps’’), photography tutorials, recipe collections, craft inspiration, industry knowledge…
There are endless reasons people start blogs:
• as a creative outlet,
• to share knowledge and information,
• to gain feedback on ideas,
• to make money,
• to launch, build, publicise or show the human side of a business, or
• as a form of therapy.
However, one of the overarching reasons people start a blog is to form and build relationships with like-minded people or existing/potential customers.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re starting a personal blog, business blog or hobby blog, I hope you’ll gain something from following the series. So, are you ready to go on this blogging journey with me?
