09 Sep What Does Your Personal Blog Say About You?
A blog is, by definition, all about you. At least it is if it’s a personal blog. But that doesn’t mean you should put any less work or effort into it than you should with a blog designed to promote your company or business.
A lot of people want to earn money from their blog, and why not? If you could earn an income stream from writing about something you love, wouldn’t you want to do it?
The problem is that your personal blog represents you. This means that if you opt for a free design or template to build your blog around, you might not give the right impression to people who find you online. Designing your own blog is far from easy, and if you want to make money with it you need a design that will tell people you’re serious and you believe in quality.
Using a free blogging service tells people you’re not interested in investing in your blog for the benefit of yourself and others. Let’s face it, which blog are you going to like the most – the free one or the one that has clearly been designed to appeal to its visitors?
It’s always going to be the latter. So even if you want to make money from your blog in the future and not necessarily straightaway, it’s still worth thinking about getting a proper and unique design done on your behalf. Your blog should be as individual as you are, so it makes sense to get an individual and unique design doesn’t it?
Blogs are definitely taken more seriously now than they used to be in the past. They provide a window onto your life that other people are allowed to look through. If you’re going to allow people into your life in this way, make sure they get the best possible view. You never know what it might lead to in the future, so it makes sense to make a great start. Your blog is all about you, so make the right impression from the off.
