If there’s one thing we wish someone, anyone, would have told us 10 years ago when we started trying to blog to make a little additional money, it’s this:
Do NOT start a passion project. The problem is, conventional wisdom has always been the following when it comes to learning how to start a blog:
Start a blog on a subject you’re passionate about. After all, you’re going to be blogging on that subject multiple times, every day, for years so you’d better love it! It’s all about consistency, being organized, organically growing your audience (at a snail’s pace, mind you) and eventually it will all pay off! It’s a slog, and you have to learn the love the slog, to get to where you want to go. Would the hard work even be worth it if it wasn’t difficult?
This is the WRONG mindset to have when learning how to start a blog in 2019, and beyond.
I bet you’re asking: Where do I start? It’s a step-by-step process we’re here to help you conquer.
