It doesn’t take a genius to make or start a blog. But if you are looking for ways to make money out of it, then you need to consider some things. Blogs are one of the greatest ways to market products or sets. But it may not be good for you if your credibility is questioned, especially when you advertise or post good reviews about some products which turn out to be of poor quality. So make sure you are credible and honest in your opinions about certain products so your followers can keep their respect towards you. So what can you expect when you start blogging?
1. Blogging is all about you. Yes, you can cite your opinion or already put your personal thoughts on it. You just become the master of your blog! You decide what to put and what not to put there and you can already edit the template to suit your taste. Or if you know how to edit templates using HTML or CSS, then that is already a thousand times better because then, you can personalize the whole page.
2. Blogging gives you freedom of expression. Yes, you can talk about almost anything. You can already talk about your personal life, or about what book you are reading or products you are using. You may already want to include photos of you or your clothes or things that you have bought and recommend to your followers. Blogging allows you to exhale and relax by writing down the things that are in your mind and heart.
3. Blogging is sometimes used to discredit people. While there is an upside to it, the downside is so much greater. Freedom of expression is good since most of the countries are democratic, but the downside to it is, it can cause people to abuse this freedom. People post rumors or already lies about others just to get attention from those who read their blogs. You should always remember that blogging is based personal opinion and experiences. Hence, sometimes, the things that people say in a blog are untrue.
4. Blogging, when used for product endorsements, can look too structured and unappealing. It’s like reading an advertisement or reading straight from a product commercial script. This can be the reason why some blogs become boring and impersonal. This can cause people to stop reading these blogs, so avoid sounding too rehearsed. If you want to endorse a product, make sure that you are nevertheless being yourself.
