It seems that everyone in the online business world today is out to make money and this even extends to the blogosphere.
Blogging has quickly become the ultimate publishing platform for anyone who wants to express themselves. The closest relative to blogging in the real world would be magazines. The only difference is rather than multiple writers and being released monthly a blog is written by one write and published as often as the blogger would like to publish their work.
A problem has quickly risen in the blogosphere as I see it. Those who want to make it big online whether fame or monetarily are doing so by following their ideals such as Darren R. and Jeremy S. These bloggers paved the road for millions like them, but the way they created their online business cannot be done over and over.
If you write on the exact topics as these bloggers and present your information in the same way you will look like a copy cat something already seen and left in the wave of unseen and unread bloggers. If you would like to separate yourself from the crowd rather than following all the tips these guys give start finding what works for you.
In the blogging world there seems to by many basic rules all must follow if they plan to start making money online. Everyone thinks you need lists or you need to break your long articles up into smaller pieces. I have heard rules explaining the proper length of an article and what to say in the post.
These rules are fine for whoever they worked for, but for you they will probably not work. You need to focus on creating content and measuring the success. You know everyone says to stay on niche when blogging so you don’t scare away your audience who has come to read about a specific topic. The problem with this is it restricts your ability to express yourself and really become a unique blogger.
When you create your blog it is important to choose a title and URL which will probably reflect the content you will be publishing on your blog. If you want to post topic on whatever you want then perhaps rather than creating a super specific blog you could generalize the blog as well as personalize.
Focus less on the business aspect of your publishing platform and begin diving into the expression aspect. This blog is a collection of your thoughts, ideas, and views so do not let other bloggers or the blogosphere as a whole decide how or what you will write about.
The freedom that blogging gives is tremendous, but if you listen to all the people out on the web spouting exactly how to make money online then you will restrict your ability to truly express yourself. When you restrict this ability you miss out on what is most important and will quickly lose interest in your blog. Being able to write about any topic I want to is what satisfies me when blogging and hopefully you to.
