Website For Blogging

Website For Blogging

Website is important for your business. Today I’m going to address the topic website for blogging. Some people try to convince you that website is dead and useless. Especially for business. And to make money. But did you know that some affiliate programs out there require you to have a website? Amazon affiliate program is the first that comes to my mind. Some business don’t even take you seriously if you don't have your own website. A website gives you authority, a place to collect information from potential customers and clients, and a place to run your business.

How Blogging Works

A blog is a shortened version of the word "weblog" an online journal or informational website displaying information in reverse chronological order, with the latest posts appearing first, at the top. It is a platform where a writer or a group of writers share their views on an individual subject. When first appeared it served as a digital personal diary. Today it serves both as informational text as well as a personal diary. It could be everything between an incident that had an impact on your daily life to a technical article about how to build a water filtering system. The blog can be text only, step by step guide and contain photos and even videos. It can even be a video only also known as vlog.

Why Blogging Is Important

Why is blogging important? Why blogging is important for business? I mentioned in the beginning of this blog that a website gives you authority. One of the most effective ways to build brand awareness, while providing relevant and useful content to your target audience is through consistent blogging. And building your website. If you have a website or operating your own blog, you probably do some sort of advertising or affiliate marketing. That means that you play an important role to advertise products and services to buyers, consumers and clients.

Why Blogging Is So Popular?

Blogging is easy to do when you first getting used to it. First is very hard. Finding out what to write about, writing enough words to have a good content, and make it interesting. But it easy to learn. All you have to do is to start. When I first started out blogging for the first time I struggled to write even 100 words.

But now I find it easier to do. The best part everyone can do it. If you don’t like to write, you can just shoot a video, or even make yourself a podcast. Your job as a blogger is simply to draw traffic to a service or a product and provide helpful information. That's it.

Many bloggers are making serious money at it. Mom blogs started gaining popularity because it was something they could do while staying at home. Writing content about daily struggles and accomplishments about parenting, what washing detergent to use, how to get over birth depression and such resonated with many other moms out there, which brought on a large and loyal audience.

And like any other shiny new thing on the internet, many of the bloggers found themselves with huge potential in marketing to their readers and earning from it. Big companies started paying bloggers to write about their products because it gave them opportunities to get their products in front of blog readers.

Thank you for sharing this well written post on blogging. A few years ago I would never have dreamed I'd enjoy writing so much. Yes, I certainly think there will always be a demand for written posts. I often prefer to save a page as a pdf then read it offline as opposed to watching a video on how to do something.

I know what you mean. To be honest, I don’t know if I hate to write or love it. I hate how long it takes me, the fact that I know my grammar isn’t perfect and get stuck in the middle of the content.

But I love to provide good information to my readers and giving useful information.

I like to absorb information in pdf, audio as well as video. But it depends on how in depth the information is and how long it is. Is it a whole book I prefer audio.

Is it a technical review I prefer video. I also enjoy podcasts.
