How To Become a Blogger


Remember those social media diagrams that say - what people think and what it actually is?

My exact thoughts when I wanted to start my blog and eventually got it off the ground. A lot of people called me Barbsie back then cos that was what I called it. 

While I'd love to tell you it was pretty straightforward, it wasn't and isn't. But there were some questions I needed myself to answer first before I could call myself a blogger.

  1. Why did I want to write my thoughts on a random space on the internet? Was there something wrong with me
  2. What did I want to achieve? World fame or just freebies
  3. Was there a particular person I wanted to target with what I was writing? My friends perhaps
  4. Why was it my business to target that person? Maybe because I felt invested in their failure or success
  5. How were these people going to read these things I wrote? Typing the URL directly into their browser maybe.
  6. Is there a science to back up these things I wrote? Based on experience there is
  7. How much do I know about what I want to write? A little. But, you learn when you teach so I'll be learning right along with everyone else too.

The last question is the reason why I went to makeup school - I wanted to know more about what I was going to be writing about. 

So, in answer to the question - How To Become A Blogger; first, answer these questions and you'll be on the right road to becoming a blogger.
