If you are reading this post, you probably want to start a blog but there is something stopping you from doing it. So first of all, congratulations! You’ve already taken the first step. You know you want to start a blog and that is a very important step. In this post I will try to go over all the obstacles that actually prevent you from starting your blog and going from the stage where you are just thinking about it and actually get to the point where you overcome your fears and open that blog you so desire.
You must realize that fear is not real. It is only thoughts you create. Fear is only a choice.
I don’t know what to write about
If you have the desire to start a blog, then you have something to write about. There are so many blogs that exist today and everyone is on a different topic. Everyone has that voice that only they can put out there and only they can tell this story their own way. Think to yourself, what do you want to write about? What is your passion? It can be fashion, it can be about your life, it can be about childrens, or any other topic.
I’m scared nobody will read my blog
True, at first no one is going to read it. Especially today, when blogs exist on a private sites and not on a blogging network, the difficulty of reaching people is more big. First of all, start, open your blog and start writing. the next step? to share. it’s so easy. Share your blog on Facebook, Instagram or any other social network. Once you become more involved with other bloggers, they will get to know you and over time more and more people will read your blog.
I don’t know where to start
The beauty of the internet is that you don’t have to be an expert in computers or website building to start a blog. I had no prior knowledge and yet I wanted to start a blog on a site of my own. So I read, researched, searched Google, saw video tutorials and did it. It wasn’t the easiest thing in the world, but when you want something and have a passion for it, you’ll find the way to do it.
Why would anyone care about what I have to say?
Because. Why not? Just like you are interested in reading other blogs, watch other videos, so other people may want to read what you write. Always remember that what you are going to write about, only you can write it your own way. No one else can do it better than you.
I’m afraid of what people will say
Most people have this fear. You are probably worried about what your friends at school or work will say, or the reviews you will receive from friends and family. I have no other way to say it, so I’ll say it like this: Who cares? Seriously, who cares? So people at work will tell you it’s pathetic you’ve started writing what you think and feel online. Okay, and? And some of your friends will find a way to make a fun of you and mention parts from your posts. You really shouldn’t mind that. Throughout my years as a blogger, I have received so many stupid reviews and statements from people, ever since I was in high school. Guess what? I never let it get to me. I just didn’t care. Some people just can’t contain the fact that there are people who are confident enough to start a website that is their own and write their opinions there. Their problem. Just know that people will always have something to say about you, so you should just do what you want to do.
I’m afraid to fail
Yes, you may fail. It’s part of life, to fail. The question is what is success for you? What is your goal in starting a blog? Are you just interested in putting your thoughts online? Do you want to make money from it? Do you want to reach lots of people? Set your goals and know how to work. If you fail, the question is how much do you want it to try again. Will you give up after the first failure, or will you draw conclusions and try again?
I hope this post helped you overcome the fear of starting a blog. If you have this desire to start a blog and share the world with the special things only you can offer, just do it. Imagine that if you will not do it, a year or two from now, you’ll think it’s a shame you didn’t start now. I encourage you to put all the fears and negative thoughts aside and just open this blog you so much want.
