Some of the most successful bloggers started blogging as a hobby. Some of them wanted to document an important phase of their lives. Others wanted to share adventures from travel to business to major life events.
Success demands you have your own products as a blogger
Many started simply to teach others. The point is that most successful bloggers didn’t get into blogging for money. It’s hard to believe that some multi-million dollar revenue blogs started out as small side projects.

It doesn’t happen overnight. I have interviewed many very successful bloggers and several of them shared that the first couple of years were a lot of work with little reward. Their sites have received few visitors if any during the first few months, but they kept writing and churning out content.

Amazing Benefits Of Blogging

Blogging has established itself as the center of all online marketing where even big brands are paying a lot of attention to it.

Yet, I see so many people puzzled about blogging and its potential. Some are afraid that they are not good at this or that or something along those lines (just like fear of public speaking) while many others do not see it as a viable option.

But what concerns me the most is when smart people, who are successful at what they do, don’t see the point. They outrageously reject blogging as a viable marketing tool, thinking it is for people who have nothing better going on in their lives. Continue Reading…

The rewards of blogging are awesome. However, your blogging challenge begins as soon as you get engaged in choosing the best suited platform for your blogging needs. It is an important point to think about if you are just starting out on the journey and it also confuses many aspiring bloggers, naturally.

We discussed earlier, why blogging is important for your personal branding, and now, having established the need for blogging, let’s discuss what is the best platform for your blogging needs.

Today, there are several blogging platforms to choose from as you get ready to start. However, the best thing is, you aren’t stuck for life with the platform you choose today.
