the 2 advantages of blogging

17 replies
I think that a lot of people arent happy with blogging because it requires writing skills and efforts but there are 2 advantages that ive notived. First is monetization. You can monetize a blog not just with banners but dozens of things such as text links ads, affiliate marketing, review posts etc, etc.

the second thing is that you can generate a huge amount of traffic because each time you post, it indexes on google = more traffic (organic)

  • Blogging is a good way to make quality backlinks and drive a targeted traffic but most of the high page ranked blogs often delete the posts thus blogging remain unsuccessful.

    Blogging is a monstrous amount of work, especially if you are going to write everything yourself, design your site, etc. If you love it, it's a rush. If you don't, you will be miserable very quickly...

    Also, if you think you might be int'd in blogging, get your site right away. The longer you have your site, the extra Google Juice you get. Domains are cheap, so just buy, put a little on it and hold.

      I agree with the writing everything yourself part, but once i learnt the in's and out of wordpress it really didn't take long to pick my theme and configure it with all the bells and whistles. I am thinking about buying "the best spinner" to do my articles for me.

    I use blogging all the time to tell people about what my company has done that day, week or month. It is an extremely useful tool for my company.

    I like blogging because of the cool connection you get to make with your readers. I do blogging and niche sites, and the niche sites are more profitable use of time, but I definitely enjoy the blog more.

    The problem is to write a unique contents which are interesting. I believe anyone can write an article but will it be interesting? I doubt anyone would wanna read a boring blog..

      I think, the benefits over to their own satisfaction or a challenge. Means what is the reason you create a blog?, doing blogging?, goal of the activity?. So, if your goal was achieved, then what do you feel? (applicable to blog or web).

      Most people could be allergic to writing, but we can hire ghostwriter through Elance or Odesk as so many webmasters do.

      If we treat our business seriously, then investing few hundred dollars would be no doubt.

    Totally agreed that blogging is the easiest way for monetization. Besides, you can start without any upfront cost or only need to fork out minimal costs for domain name or hosting...

    Cheers!

    I think that people are "afraid" of writing content because they analyze it way too much. Sure, you gotta be interesting but,, damn,, look at some of the stuff out there that's terrible but people listen to it,, watch it,, or read it,,. Jersey Shore,, The Hills,, basically any reality tv show. Mostly CRAP! But,, I think if you just get to it and post your opinion with some backing it up,, you'll do ok. I mean, look how interesting I am here. I know you wanna keep reading to see what else I have to say. Have a little faith in yourself when it comes to writing things. It doesn't have to be a masterpiece. ( I did have a guy tell me on one of my sites that all he does is read blogs and that I wrote some of the best stuff he ever read in cyberspace) And I was just writing what I thought. Just do it!! Go for IT!! Rock And Roll baby!!!
