Starting a blog is easy but sustaining it by producing high-quality blog post is where the real work begins. Your post is like a movie that can take over a year of practice to become a reality.
That same movie took years, but someone else will take two hours to watch it and give his or her review, whether positive or negative. Nevertheless, you have the advantage because you can reinvent your blog post, unlike the movie.
In building a successful business, your blog is your library to your customers. It is where you exhibit your expertise as it relates to that industry
Great business blogs come in various varieties and shapes – from CEO blogs to expert blogs, from inspirational blogs to technical blogs. Each blog has a unique style and tone with different objectives to achieve.
However, what defines them all is the passion of the individual writing them. The best blogs are those written by those who know and understand most things about that industry or topic. Additionally, they know how to communicate to their audience in such a manner that can resonate with the topic.
The mistake most people make is to measure the success of their blog based on the number of followers and likes they have. It is one of the worst mistakes to make because I did the same in my first blog. Eventually, that blog didn’t see the light of the day because I was impatience. My impatience led to discouragement, which eventually resulted in the “death” of my blog.
Having a passion for starting your blog isn’t enough. You have to be patient. You have to keep at it even when there are no followers or likes. However, you have to design your blog with the mindset to help your readers or audience to find the information that needs to help build and grow their business.
