What’s the usual career path for a blog writer?
Becoming a paid writer, blogger – working online and from anywhere is a dream thats rapidly becoming a reality. People without any online experience but real world skills and knowledge are in demand. But there is a right and a wrong way to make this happen – and it breaks our hearts to see SO MANY people doing it the completely wrong way.
Make a ‘free website’.
Lots of people save themselves a few dollars by skipping the small investment to buy a domain and setup a proper website. Go back to any of these websites and look carefully at the wording.
You create the website for free. Who owns it?
Web developers get paid to build websites for clients… but you just built a website for a multi-million dollar corporation … for free. Wow.
How generous of these companies to let you build their website for them!
If you want to actually own the domain or use any professional features (you will) that’s no problem because they will let you connect your domain to the site.
It will cost you about $150 USD per year + domain.
Think it’s Easy.
Just like the idea that you can build a valuable website for free – it’s ridiculous to think you are going to shoot to fame instantly. With no partnerships, no technical support, a free website and no training – you’re hardly a valuable asset. You thought being a blogger was about writing – that people just pay you to write – isn’t that how it works?
Here’s how most people think the process is going to go...
Step 1 – Build a Website
Step 2 – ???
Step 3 – Make Money!
Let me fill you in on the missing step… an AUDIENCE. If nobody is reading – you are wasting your time.
Being a writer your most valuable assets are your readers… not your words.
Get disappointed. Quit.
Most people who make the first two blunders we mentioned above have already lost most of their enthusiasm. So many hopes dashed and so much time wasted. They write a few posts and find that its difficult getting anyone to read what you have written without an established audience network or any real idea how to build one. As time goes on, and their blog posts continue to be largely ignored – they resort to writing on facebook, giving up on the dream of making any actual money from blogging before they even really started.
