How to Become a Blogger and Discover Your Passion

What can you get out of learning how to become a blogger? Well, did you ever want to have a reason to wake up in the morning besides just getting ready to go to the old JOB, only to come home, sleep, and do it all over again? That’s what learning how to become a blogger can do for you! Imagine waking up to email notifications that you’ve received leads opting into your blog site for more information because they’re interested in what you have to say!

And blogging will help you discover your passion because you will write about what inspires you… Most of us who live hum-drum lives are unaware of what we rant out of life. I once heard that if you want to determine your passion – what do you Rant about – then think about what you don’t like and take the opposite. If you’re unsure how to discover your love, you’re not alone…



When you spend the day in and day out just going to work and centering your entire life around what other people want, it’s all too easy to lose sight of what YOU want out of life. What are the basics of becoming a blogger, and how do bloggers make money? How to Become a Blogger Step 1: Get your blog setup.

This could entail paying a software specialist to create it for you or just going the easy way out and taking advantage of a team blog site. FYI, if you decide to pay someone, you’ll want to create detailed pages ahead of time to fill in the information on tabs created for “about you,” “work with you,” “what you recommend,” and “contact you.”

The blog will be all about YOU…

This was a difficult concept for me to grasp initially, as my life generally was never “all about me.” But keep in mind that your posts will not be so much about you as about what you can do to help other people. The more you can help others, the more people will want to read about you!

On the other hand, a team blog site has everything already set up for you, and the benefit of being a highly trafficked site with a low Alexa score (popular on Google), so your posts will be more likely to rank highly in the Google search engines. You can also get started within minutes after obtaining your team site and customize it by loading your picture and bio.

How to Become a Blogger Step 2: Determine your target market.

Use keyword research techniques to find out how many people are searching for a particular keyword phrase, and then decide to formulate your blog post around that keyword phrase. This will ensure future readers return to your site repeatedly as people search for a particular solution to a problem (for a while, you have the solution!).

How to Become a Blogger Step 3: Create posts with value.

Blog posts are short articles you write about something you’re passionate about. Whether you’re posting to sell or not, writing about your passions is advantageous because you will attract readers who tend to agree with your ideas.

Ultimately, people will buy from those they know, like, and trust (people like themselves!). You will build rapport with your readers as they identify with your problems.

“But I don’t know how to write blogs,” you might say…

Many famous bloggers never write – they create videos and insert them into their posts. That’s the “post.” You can even grab the HTML code from someone else’s YouTube video and use it for your own. If you link back and reference the source, the video creator will like you for it.

The point here is to make your material interesting to whoever might land on your page... Try to capture attention asking a question to which someone might relate emotionally, such as how to Bbecomea Blogger. Step 4: Learn how to promote Blog

Some people think they must keep blogging, and their pages will “go viral” automatically. It’s not that easy. (Although, as my mother used to say, “aAnything’seasy if you know how to do it.”) You must take the permalink from your blog page and promote it through social media, Facebook, and Twitter. When you can get a lot of likes on your page, you know it’s something worth promoting further, and it’s time to start building backlinks to help your blog post rank on Google.
