Blogging, more than just writing

Writing will only be a small part of blogging. You have to do research before you start blogging. What is your target group & what is your ambition? How do you attract the right people? Your opinion should, of course, be well-founded and the facts you mention should be correct.

You need to know how to attract traffic to your website

  • Place comments on other blogs in your niche.
  • Do the necessary SEO (Search engine optimization).
  • Be active on multiple Social Media platforms.

Start affiliations with multiple companies.

When you want to make money with your blog, you need to apply for affiliation with companies. They often are connected with a network. To figure out how this all is working will cost you time. Also implementing the ads to your website will take up some amount of your time.

Analyse your traffic and results

When you start a website to blog, you do need to keep track of what’s happening. Google Analytics is the best way to follow this. You can see where your traffic comes from, which gender, which age. How long people stay on your website. And much more.

Email and advertising campaigns

When you take your blogging seriously, you will also spend time on email campaigns, you need to write a newsletter to send monthly to your subscribers. There comes also a time, you want to advertise on your website on Facebook or Adwords. You have to create your own advertisements.

Images and picture

You have to assume that every image is protected under the copyright law. You can not just pick any image from Google for your blog. So you have to investigate whether an image is free to use. There can be a lot of time involved in this too.

Other time involved in blogging

So besides writing, you’ll be spending time on Social Media, on analyzing, on website development, and your affiliate companies.

Shortly said, you have to realize that creating an awesome website which people will bookmark, cost time, effort and perseverance.

Don’t sweat, you can get help!

When I started, almost 4 years ago, I didn’t know anything about blogging, website development or affiliations. As a total nitwit, without any IT background, I came in contact with the Wealthy Affiliate University, a Canadian online training platform. I took the training step-by-step and developed 8 websites. This is one of them. And I can tell you, I have learned so much during this years, I am totally surprised about myself, and to be honest, also very proud! I couldn’t have accomplished this without the amazing community help. When you decide to join our community, I will be there to help you, as I help many others in the community.

Slowly, but steadily my income is increasing

I don’t know what your reason will be to start a website for blogging, my reason is to create an additional income for my retirement. I have not accrued pension. I have still some time left 🙂 My retirement will be in 2028. I work daily a couple of hours on one of my websites to increase my visibility on the internet and my monthly income.
