Yes, I’m still here. It’s been a while, but nothing has changed. At least I think so. There wasn’t one single article since January. Dear God. That is a pity. That’s why I’m getting back in the blog game today. Today I’m sharing with you the myths that exist to become a successful blogger. Because to be honest, I have read many times that you have to be a journalist (-student) to know success. Happy reading!
Choose a Niche
I really stumbled over the fact that beauty didn’t quite suit me. I started beauty, lifestyle and personal. After these niches, came fashion and travel. But hey, whatever! When I’m happy with what I write, it’s good, right? Anyway, I promised myself that I was going to write what whatever the hell I want. And if you want statistics: I have noticed a huge difference in my unique visitors.
Be an extravert
You know those prejudices like: “bloggers are lazy,” “bloggers get everything for free”, “bloggers are all extroverted people,” etc. I’m personally not a fan of those types of phrases. But an extrovert? Why do you have to be an extravert to become a successful blogger? I can understand that you can achieve much more if you dare to come out of your shell, but there are plenty of well-known bloggers who are introverts. And I believe blogging is just a good way of writing that can let you write down your opinions and feelings.
Be a rich one
Even though you will hear many outsiders say we get everything for free, we must certainly pay something that has to do with blogging. Think of a good laptop with an amazingly good keyboard (which can handle our fast typing hands), a professional camera, etc. And I’ve not even told you about the hosting of your blog and maintaining your blog. Yet there is a way to do it for free or for as little money as possible: namely, a free platform to blog on. Like Blogger from Google. I’ve only done this way because I don’t really looked beyond one month.
Be a journalist
Spelling mistakes, we make them sometimes. Even with a diploma. That having been said, we start blogging from 0. We build a relationship with readers, hoping to get a bond with these readers, build trust and so on. So if you have a degree in journalism, for example, does not mean that you don’t have to maintain this or do this. It can help you to write better and more focused, but you must go through the same process as any other blogger.
What’s your opinion, do you think we have to have a diploma?
