Are you one of those people that wants to start a blog but you are too afraid to do so? Maybe you get uneasy about putting yourself out there. Are you afraid to share it with people you know? Things about blogging could make you uncomfortable. These are some fears bloggers face and how to overcome them.
What if nobody likes reading my blog?
Honestly, your family and friends may not be in your niche. Most of the people I know aren’t interested in freelance writing or starting a blog. There are people I know online that want to learn more about making money from home. I share my blog with them and hope they learn from it. However, the majority of my audience doesn’t know me and typically finds me after a Google search or on Pinterest.
What if I’m not good at writing good content?
In the beginning, you might not write the best content. But the only way to get better is practice. The more you write the better you’ll get. You should get started on your blog today.
If you are interested in starting a blog of your own, I created a tutorial that will help you, How to Start a Blog. If you are asking yourself “Can you seriously make money blogging?” My main tip is to be self-hosted. This is essential if you want to monetize your blog. It also makes you look more professional to companies you will partner with. Blogging income won’t happen unless you are self-hosted. You can pick from these links: Bluehost, or HostGator.
What if my niche is saturated?
There’s a ton of blogs about blogging but that hasn’t stopped me. Most things have already been done before. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel. Your blog is written by you and will have YOUR perspective on the topics you write about. You can read blogs in your niche and attempt to write the posts better than they do. There’s nothing wrong with taking and sharing ideas as long as you aren’t plagiarizing.
How would I network?
A good way to meet other bloggers is through Facebook groups. There are a ton. Just pick one and join it and start networking as long as it is allowed in the rules of the group. You might not be able to share your posts until certain days of the week, but you can probably through yourself out there and try to make some new friends.
What if I fail with blogging?
You might fail. But if you don’t try you’ll never know. (So cliche but true.) A good idea is to pick a niche that will do well on Pinterest and solve people’s problems. Write your posts sharing the knowledge you wish you knew when you got into your topic of choice.
What would I do if someone doesn’t like what I write?
If you make it, you’re going to get comments from people who might not agree with you. That’s okay. They aren’t your target audience and you can always delete the comment. I think a good example of the comments you see on Youtube. Have you SEEN some of the stuff those people say? The Youtuber usually will just not engage. I think that’s pretty much the best thing to do.
