Should I Start a Blog? Yes. Here’s Why.

Why Everyone Should Start a Blog – EVERYONE.

Why Should I Blog?

You might ask yourself, “Why Should I Blog?”
Every entrepreneur should start a blog.
Yes, you there.
I’m talking to you!

Because you can put your ideas on paper (electronic paper).
Because it’s a great entry into learning online business.
Because you can build your future client base.
Because it can help keep you accountable and on task.

But you may object with the following:
I don’t know what I would write about.
I don’t know anyone that would listen.
I don’t want people to know what I’m writing.
I don’t know how to get started.
I don’t have the time.
I don’t know anything about a blog.

All of these are super valid and are exactly why you need to blog.
To get over all of these.
All of these are brick walls.
Just getting over these walls are huge accomplishments.
And this is before anyone actually reads your blog and cares about what you say.

That’s why I admire anyone that has a blog – high trafficked or not, beautiful design or not.
Because showing up is 90% of the game.
Simply getting a blog started is a large hurdle to be jumped.
People like to make fun of the crappy baseball players in the pros.
“Yeah, this guy I know played for the White Sox but he wasn’t all that good.”
You Chump.
He Played For The Pros – The PROS!
He was better than 90% of other ball players out there that thought they were pro material.

So just get started.

You can google and find out 100% of what you need to know on how to start a blog.
There is a ton of free content online.
Or you can just hop on my article showing how much it costs to start a blog.

[And of course you’ll need a domain name, theme, hosting service, etc.
Feel free to use my recommendations (who I use) on my Resources Page.]

“But I don’t have a niche, what will I write about?”
Your aspirations.
Your goals.
What you want to accomplish.
Your fears.
What you’ve learned.
What you’re going to learn.
What you’re in the process of learning.

“But I don’t have the time to get started.”
I agree.
I don’t either.
I didn’t have the time to write this post (I was on vacation in Guatemala when I originally wrote this article).
But I made it a priority
I did it for you.
To show you that you can make the time.
Am I busy like you?

“But I just want to learn how to create an online business.”
That’s great!
Create a blog in the process.
You’ll discover that a blog is an online business.
You’ll learn incredible skills – SEO, website building knowledge, affiliate knowledge, information product knowledge, writing skills, etc.
All of these will help you in building your online business platform.
Guess who will be the first in line to buy your product in your online business?
The folks that read your blog (as long as you are targeting the same audience).
Heck, you can even blog about the process of starting your online business.
You’ll have content for a year.

“But if I blog I want to keep it a secret”
Don’t tell anyone.
Blog anonymously.
Build a huge following incognito.
Make up a pen name Mr. Mark Twain.
Create a secret personality Ms. Betty Crocker.
A following will crave what you have to say.

They will also buy what you have to offer because they trust you.
Whether products of your own, products of others, your knowledge, etc.
They will happily pay for it.

So start a blog.
Start small.
And then go big.
Change the world.
