How To Write A Blog- English Is My Second Language.
Yes, I commit grammar errors while writing but this does not stop me from writing. I have to write reports & emails too, I don’t stop.
Don’t panic. I have wasted my 7 years. I thought to start writing blogs back in the year 2012 and now it’s 2019. I got inspired by my own fear of not doing this. Someone challenged me to work on my life and face my fears and I was like hell yea!
Stop me if you can!
I am like this.
Also, if someone challenges me then it’s do-or-die. And especially, it’s happening for a cause than why shouldn’t I write and share this with people. I know there will be many people in the world like me, who stopped to take action because they worry about what society will think about them. Let the society think, who cares.
And if I can be the inspirational source for people out there then why not?
I have given you a reason why should you write a blog? What’s holding you back?
Come on. Find your Why?
Face your fear and fight back.
Fear is in your mind and the mind is controlled by you. Don’t let anyone(people) else control your mind.
You have it, what it takes to begin writing.
You are much better than you think.
Don’t judge yourself based on what happened back in the past. Give it a fresh start now.
How To Write A Blog?
I am not going to be teaching you how to write a blog as in writing a blog. Referring to English here- since English is my second language and I guess many people around the globe struggle writing a blog even though their first language is English.
There is nothing to fear!
I remember joining a community where people were complaining about writing, I know that sometimes it can be terrifying and there are going to be people who might criticize you for any reasons, don’t take them seriously.
But your mission has to be share & spreading the knowledge in the World.
There are going to be many reasons for not doing something but find that one reason that can not only change your life but others too.
There will be millions of people who will be reading your blog and might find some inspiration from that. What’s holding you back is your fear?
How To Start
I am going to share 6 key points with you all before you plan to write a Blog and explain the reasons why I have chosen these in detail. Are you ready?
1. How To Choose A Blog Topic- Website name
It’s an important aspect before you begin writing. You should be focusing on your strengths and not the weakness. You must be good with something and that could be anything- starting from your day’s activity to how you finish your day. Believe me, you will be amazed to see that there are people like you sharing similar habits and they want to improve their habits, it could be the way you have improved. Go and help them.
Alright, let me give you an example here. What is the name of my website- www.learn2earnmoneyonline.com
And what ideas do I share with you?
You have an option to either choose a website under your name to begin with or simply you can choose a URL name that people can easily relate with. Remember- easy to find.
If you are a home-maker and you would like to share your experience with people about how you manage your day- it could be like, from the time you wake up –> sending kids to schools –> what you do for the rest of the day and you can share your thoughts with people.
An example for the URL could be- HOMEHUSTLE.COM
You can check the availability right here with Jaaxy.
You can search for the best SEO (search engine optimization) results here. And you can also check the website names too.
2. Where Can I Find a Domain Name From
I hope you must have figured out the name that you would like to keep for your blog. I would recommend something unique and unforgettable. And once you have decided the name, check the availability of the domain, there could be a possibility of .com not available, you can look for .org or .net.
I would highly recommend a .com domain.
And look if you are still unsure and just want to give this a try first, you have the option of going ahead with a free website.
Once you get yourself familiarize with the blog writing and promoting your blogs online then you can buy a registered domain.
I am providing you 2 options here-
What would I recommend?
I would highly recommend HostGator when you are starting up. Trying to keep the things simple for yourself. Simple as in less technical. (You can find the domain name & Webhosting at the same place).
3. What Is Webhosting & Where Can I Get That From
A Webhosting service is a type of Internet hosting service. It allows people and companies to make their website available on the World Wide Web (www.). Web Hosts are companies which provide space on a server which is owned or leased for use by clients. These clients store their website on the server. The server feeds the webpages on the Internet.
Many web hosting service also provided other services including file hosting service.
This definition is taken from Wikipedia.
When you start with the Siterubix, your web hosting is included.
4. What Free Themes Should I Choose
Themes are the pre-tailored or pre-designed website designs that are very easy to install and work with. Back in the past, there used be codes and languages with which programmers used to develop these themes. Nowadays, it has become really easy to install and work with the themes.
There are millions of themes out there.
For a better definition- you can visit- Wikipedia.
5. How To Write A Blog
I have defined the steps here for you all and that’s exactly how I started writing a Blog. And it’s really easy. Within a month, I have become like a Pro.
I never thought that I would be able to achieve this much within a month now you are going to ask whether if I am having any technical knowledge with me. The honest answer is “NO”. I didn’t know anything about creating my own website. I actually got a website earlier and that was back in the year 2015 and just to build that website, I paid $400 + other costs on the top.
Today, I have built this super amazing website of my own which I am feeling really proud of. With no web-building skills, I have achieved this much for myself. The sky is the limit by the way.
I have not only saved those $400 that I paid back in the past but I am impressed with the quality that I have produced. You know what you want.
Yes, I agree that I have spent time on my website. Look, I started enjoying it. And when you do something with passion & enjoyment, it’s not the time that you care, it’s the quality you really get worried about and that requires patience. (Creativity requires space)
I have got my first blog to show you and that was really poor content. I am not ashamed to say that it is really poor but that shows my efforts & dedication that what I have achieved within a month, it’s amazing.
Many people say that it’s impossible but the word Impossible itself says that- I Am Possible.
Read your content twice-thrice, before you publish.
I want to share a good habit with you that my friend shared with me and it’s working, In fact, it’s working great. This has improved my quality and I am sure over a period of time, my writing quality will get better.
Take your time, don’t just publish something when you are done.
I am going to be sharing some tools & resources with you for your business, again that’s for free. You must be thinking that this guy is amazing, he is getting us so much of freebies. That’s right. I love sharing.
If I am getting it, what’s the harm in sharing and helping people in need. After all, sharing is caring.
Write in the comment section, how you go with that, just to start with. And if you know something better, do share this with me and other people.
6. How To Make Money While Blogging
Oh! Come on.
Now don’t tell me that you don’t know that, you can make money when people read your blogs.
Yes, that is true!
After all, you are sharing your experience and if people can learn from your experience and you can keep them engaged with your content then surely, you can make money.
And frankly speaking, it’s your choice. This is indeed the best point out of the above 5 points but it does take time.
Your creativity gets killed when it comes to money matters.
Again go back and check your why.
What was the main reason why you started, if that was for money, that’s ok then and if this is just to share your knowledge with the World and connect with some cool people around the world then that’s a great platform?
I have shared the 6-key points with you all. Why you should begin today and start writing a blog?
No matter what, even if English isn’t your first language that doesn’t matter. I am encouraging you to begin this now. All the tools are available today. And it’s your mind that stops you from achieving your goals, don’t let your mind play with you.
The remote control of your mind has to be in your hands.
Till then, you all take care, stay motivated and blessed.
Remember- Knowledge Is Power & Learning Helps You Achieve Greatness.
The Choice Is Yours.
All the best!
