How to Write a Blog

One of the most frequent questions I hear is “How do I start a blog?”

There are many places online to start up a blog, but that’s not where you need to start.

The real question you should be asking is, “How do I start a blog that people want to read?”

The most authentic (and popular) blogs are started for personal reasons.  What they grow into organically is the result of the blog author’s ability to be vulnerable and share themselves freely.

Listen to this TED talk from Neil Pasicha, the creator of 1000 Awesome Things and you will understand what I mean.

Today’s TweetableThe most popular blogs grow from the author’s authenticity and ability to make themselves vulnerable

What part of you do you share on your blog?  Leave me a note below.

    Thank you, Melissa for the post – you hit the nail on the head!

    I’ve been blogging for several years (WordPress) and my ‘Brand’ “Your Humble Farmer” has undergone a number of transformations. Although still ‘Your Humble Farmer’, I’ve re-branded to a more relevant, local name as depicted in my site.

    Missing from my current site is the plethora of articles I’ve written over the years, but most notable of what I’ve ‘written’ about is more in the form of videos. I really prefer Vblogging as opposed to simple print and pics. I find the message, regardless the topic packs a powerful punch. As referenced in my site the staggering statistic that the average person can read 250-300 WPM while within the same minute a person can retain roughly 1.8 Million words in a video.

    So….to answer your question….

    I shoot video’s whenever possible to convey the heart-felt feelings that words alone fall significantly short in conveying. In the last year alone, I’ve shot, edited, produced, and published (YouTube) well over 50 videos – 23 of them for a marketing campaign done for a local Farmers Market featuring local farmers/vendors. No surprise, but the results of that campaign netted each vendor an average increase in revenue of 30% their weekly featured “Meet the Farmer” video.

    Video blogging is my first choice solution!

    Thanks again for the article – I never miss the opportunity to absorb your knowledge and experience.
