1.1.2. What is a blog

1.1.2.1. Informational

1.1.2.1.1. Your goal is to transfer life-enhancing understanding from your expert brain to a reader. That means it can’t just be content on a page or even knowledge in their heads. That means it has to stick and it has to change behavior for the better.

1.1.2.2. Educational

1.1.2.2.1. More Stories. Fewer “tips, tricks or steps.”

1.1.2.3. Inspirational

1.1.2.3.1. Inspire people Don't Tell

1.1.2.4. Entertainment

1.1.3. How to get off to a great start!

1.1.3.1. Focus a target Audience.

1.1.3.1.1. You've heard it before but it is ALWAYS better to focus on quality over quantity.

1.1.3.2. Focus a target SMALL Niche

1.1.3.2.1. We all have things that we know about or are passionate about it. Focus your energy for that! We want to be real and sincere and what better way to do that then share about something you love?

1.1.3.3. GET INVOLVED AND BE CONSISTENT

1.1.3.3.1. Read other blogs in your niche and get relevant information!

1.1.3.3.2. You could even meet up at local events or gatherings if you would like and share your experiences either there or the experience of the meet up on your blog!

1.1.3.4. Always Answer Questions on your blog!

1.1.3.4.1. Take the time to talk with your followers!

1.1.3.5. Create a goal of some sort!

1.1.3.5.1. Take the time and do something! Write about it! Your first quest will require a significant effort for little or no reward, which is why it is helpful to love and be passionate about it, but the end result will be a dedicated audience, which is the foundation of any sustainable profitable business.

1.1.3.6. Be authentic, Vulnerable and Different!

1.1.3.6.1. Always do this as it shows you are real! Get outside of your comfortable zone! The more you do this the more you will not be uncomfortable anymore and people will look up to you!

1.1.3.7. Don't wait for Inspiration!

1.1.3.7.1. If you wait around for the Eureka moment, it will not happen. Write anyway and it WILL come to you

1.1.3.8. Don't wait to "figure it out"

1.1.3.8.1. Don’t wait to “figure it all out” before you start your first blog. That notion kills most high-potential blogs before they ever start. What a waste! Instead find someone to shadow or a mentor, do what they do and do what they say!

1.1.3.9. Don't wait for perfection!

1.1.3.9.1. get used to the fact that your blog will never be “good enough.” This is a good thing. If your blog is “good enough,” then it’s dead.

1.1.3.10. Your content WILL suck. Publish it ANYWAY!

1.1.3.10.1. This may be the most under appreciated blogging commandment out there. All those great blogs that have changed your life used to suck. What makes them great is that they didn’t suck for very long because they learned from their experience.

1.1.3.11. Know Your Expertise!

1.1.3.11.1. YOU have something that NO ONE else does. Your goal is to find what that is and TEACH other people about it!

1.1.3.12. Schedule a regular time daily to write and refine!

1.1.3.12.1. Write or refine for that whole time scheduled, then publish no matter what. This is the #1 habit of bloggers with an impact. Have at least 1 hour a week where you look over your content, select something that could use improvement and update it.

1.1.4.3.1. It's not always about getting visitors to your site, but about getting the right kind of visitors.

1.1.4.3.2. How much is a keyword worth to your website? If you own an online shoe store, do you make more sales from visitors searching for "brown shoes" or "black boots?" The keywords visitors type into search engines are often available to webmasters, and keyword research tools allow us to find this information. However, those tools cannot show us directly how valuable it is to receive traffic from those searches. To understand the value of a keyword, we need to understand our own websites, make some hypotheses, test, and repeat - the classic web marketing formula.
