The Digital Minute

Blogging is a really enjoyable hobby, a fun way to express yourself creatively and, if you put the work in, could even generate some income or become a whole new career.

 

It’s easy to start, using a free platform such as blogger.com or wordpress.com and you can write about anything you like.

 

There are successful blogs on almost any niche you can think of - from hillwalking to board games from the 1980s, personal fitness, health and wellbeing, pop culture and much, much more.

 

I believe everyone has a blog in them,

 

The posts you write don’t need to be long and it’s best if they do include some pictures and video where possible.

 

Business owners often blog because it can improve where their website appears in Google search results and if your blog is seen by someone who shares your passion for a particular topic, and they contact you, it could be the start of a new relationship and collaboration opportunities. 

 

Around the world there are almost 600 million blogs - with some updated every day, some weekly, monthly or just whenever the blogger has something they want to say.

 

You don’t need much in the way of computer literacy to maintain a blog - you can even set things up so that you publish your posts simply by emailing a special address and you don’t need an existing website to have a blog.

 

medium.com, blogger.com, wordpress.com are all good places to start and if you blog or there’s one you enjoy reading - get in touch and let me know. You’ll find me at colinkelly.net
