Are you interested in starting a blog?
Are you interesting in blogging as a business?
Or even as a hobby?
If you are interested in blogging – but are scared to give it a try – read this article before you make a decision.
After you read this article you will see how easy, fun, and profitable it can be to start a blog.
Think about this.
You do the work once. Say you create an ebook or a video course. ONCE.
You sell this course forever. This course or ebook is delivered automatically so there is nothing extra you have to do.
After you create the product, the business is completely hands off.
The best part? You keep nearly all of the profit.
When you create physical products and sell them, you have big costs. A product that sells for $40 might cost you $20 or $30 in materials, shipping, and manpower.
On the contrary, an ebook that you sell for $40 costs you nothing but the small processing fees charged by PayPal and others. If you sell a $40 ebook, you might keep $37 or more.
You don't have to do any work when the product gets sold. Automation takes care of everything.
Running a real business is a hassle (trust me, I know) and running a blog business is a breeze.
2) New year, new you
So many people start the new year wanting a new change in their life.
But they don't often know what that change could be.
Some people want to get into shape, some people want to get an education, some people want to get a better job.
But what always happens?
You forget about whatever it is after one or two weeks.
Nothing is holding your feet to the fire so you stop caring.
When you blog about your efforts you develop one thing that can help keep you on track – an audience.
Yes, it is people – real people like you and I – who will read your blog and follow your story.
It is these people who will ask you about your progress if you disappear.
It is these real people who become interested in you, so much so that you never want to let them down.
So in a crazy way, writing a blog gives you a support network.
3) Building a blog gives you pride of accomplishment
The great thing about a blog is that you can see the rewards of your work and the fruits of your labor.
When a blog article is done, nobody else will get the credit – only you.
Unlike in an office environment where you have to share the credit with the sociopathic manager or the idiot who did none of the work, on a blog all of the credit goes directly to the blog creator/author.
4) A blog business can give you freedom
Many people dream of one day quitting their job to travel the world or just be a beach bum.
That's exactly what I dreamt of many years ago.
I'd drive to my job hating life, dreaming of being free on some beach somewhere sipping a coconut and loving life.
I took my dreams a step further and I made them become a reality.
The blog allowed me the freedom to travel the world for nearly 8 years.
5) Blogs can help you find friends
I never dreamed that one of the biggest benefits of starting a blog would be finding lifelong friends.
But that's exactly what happened.
I've now got friends in many different countries in the world.
They found the blog, they liked it, they emailed me, we met and became fast friends.
This has happened to me countless times.
Finding friends was never on my to do list – I only wanted to escape the rat race – but knowing have friends everywhere has been a great blessing.
6) Blogs continue to pay you, even when you don't work
Want to take a day off from your office job?
You better pretend to be sick so your boss will buy it when you call in “sick.”
But let's pretend you're in the blog business and want to take a day off.
What do you do?
You take the day off.
There is nobody to answer to.
And in fact, you will find that time spent away from your blog only builds more interest in you and your work.
I found this out by accident.
For many years I was a perfectionist and would only release perfect articles.
Sometimes this meant I released only one article per month.
Can you guess what happened?
My readership grew and grew and grew.
It is not true that you have to always be publishing to make money and make your mark.
Really. That's it.
7) Blogs let you express your creativity
In the working world, your creativity is usually stifled.
If you have an idea that is “outside of the box” people do not appreciate it.
Often, they actually scold you for thinking outside of the box.
As if to say, “How dare you think of new ways to accomplish our goals!”
But with a blog you are rewarded for creative thinking.
Because when people are online they are not confined to the same rigid social codes they are confined to in “the real world.”
Online, people appreciate new and creative modes of thought and ways to do things.
In fact, where creativity does not pay in the real world, creativity pays big in the blog world.
8) Blog are the easiest and cheapest business to start
To start a blog only costs a hosting fee.
This is usually $5-10 per month.
The hosting fee is the same as paying rent in the real world.
Rent for your blog is way cheaper than rent for a storefront business.
The hosting cost is the ONLY startup fee to start a professional blog.
Not only is starting a blog cheap, it is fun.
When you start a new blog you get to learn new things. Things you were never taught in school.
It is a grand experience learning the ins and out of the blog business.
Not only is starting a blog cheap and fun, it is EASY.
Literally anybody with a computer can start a blog. Even you.
