I have a friend who we always push to start blogging whenever we meet. It is not because we are a bunch of bullies who like to pick on people. It is more because this friend often talks about what she will do differently with her website if she has a blog.
Hearing that once can make it effortless to venture into a long conversation about blogging. However, if the topic often pops up, and you hear a friend mention it every time, that is a bit worrying. It is best to start a blog because:
You Cannot Sit On A Brilliant Idea Forever
The idea of blogging is undoubtedly not something that you have thought of last night. It is no small feat to launch a website and write the content for it. More likely than not, you have been sitting on a plan for some time now.
If I guessed correctly, you should bring this brilliant idea to fruition before someone else comes up with it. It is not uncommon for two or more individuals to have similar blogging plans, after all. What matters is that you execute what you have in mind before others do it.
Your Blog May Gain More Following Now Than Ever
Even though the pandemic has brought misfortune to a lot of companies worldwide, it has indirectly blessed virtual platforms. Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and other video-sharing apps have had a soaring number of subscribers over the last couple of months. More people check out various websites every day, considering they may be staying at home all the time.
What this information signifies is that you may be able to obtain many followers now more than ever. That is especially true if your content relates to things that everyone seems most interested in these days. E.g., baking, online gaming, cooking, home decorating, etc.
People Need To Take Their Minds Off The Pandemic
Many folks who have all the bearings required to start a blog but still have not done it worry that no one will care about their articles. They tend to ask, “Who am I to share these tips?” or “Am I as good as the other experts out there?” Their confidence level drops whenever they think about blogging.
However, it will help if you remember that the entire world is dealing with a pandemic. No one is honestly safe from the coronavirus, and such a fact makes people worry. If you can provide fresh content that can help them forget COVID-19, albeit momentarily, then you have already succeeded.
When Will You Be Free Again?
A typical mistake that even brilliant individuals commit is waiting for the perfect time to act on their ideas. They insist that launching something like a blog calls for months of planning and that jumping into action at once will be suicide. But I beg to disagree—you should start making your blogging dream come true today!
The reason is that there may be a massive pile of work that waits for you in the office when the quarantine is over. You need to offer your undivided attention to them; otherwise, your bosses may not like the idea and decide to fire you. So, if you put it off again, there may not be another chance.
A blog is meant to inform, entertain, and uplift your readers. It is perhaps more in-demand now than you can ever imagine, especially since people may be tired of hard-hitting news.
Do not wait for too long before you start blogging. Let this new blog become one of your best contributions to the world. Cheers!
