Starting your own blog is something that can be a great form of self-expression. You can share with people and exchange ideas in a way that is unique from talking face to face.
Some people find that they have such great success with their blog that they even end up making a career out of it and monetizing advertising.
If this is enough to get you excited about starting a blog, the next step is deciding what you want to write about. Since blogging is all about individual expression, the possibilities are limitless when it comes to choosing your subject matter.
Not sure what your first post should be about? Here are some ideas to get you started.
Review a Product
One of the most popular things you can find on blogs is people buying technology or other products and reviewing them. This is useful for people who come across their blog and want to find out the scoop on something without buying it themselves.
Once you start building a big enough audience, you might find that companies will actually start to send you their products for free in hopes of you reviewing them for your blog.
If you want to connect with your readers personally, you may want to write a blog post about a personal experience that is meaningful to you. The more personal you make it, the more inspiring it will be to the people who read it.
Try to think of something unique in your life or something that formed you as a person. You may want to end the post with a question like “What personal experiences have you had which have also shaped you as a person?” You’ll find that encouraging interaction with your readers will invoke more reader participation and ultimately more of a following.
