Why Blogging Is Easier Than You Think*



*This is a collaborative post*

You are obviously a fan of blogs, or else you wouldn’t be reading this one right now. But have you ever thought about running your own? The great thing about the internet is that it is egalitarian. Anyone with a computer and a Wi-Fi connection can join in the fun. You do not need to have any previous writing experience or any formal academic training at all. As long as you want to write and you want to share your knowledge and passion with the world, you are just about as ready as you’ll ever need to be.


Starting something new is always difficult and making the decision to put yourself out there and hope that people enjoy it is a big one. You might also be worried about the technical side of running a website. Do you need to know about coding? How do you ensure that your website remains safe? Does it cost money to run a blog? These are all good questions. Luckily, the answers all point in the same direction. Blogging is a lot easier than you may think it is and here is why:


First, in terms of the technical side, it is happily quite easy. All of the infrastructure for a website has already been developed for you. The only thing left to do is to take advantage of it. Something like PAC Web Hosting is a great place to start. It costs less than a cup of coffee each month, and most people drink more than one cup a day so it is almost nothing when you look at it like that. Also, you can get started right away with all the technical support that you could ever need. In return, you get a place to be yourself and express who you are.


Next, and this bit is the easiest of all, you need to fill up your brand new blog with the things that you love. You can become part of a niche community (and there are a lot of them out there). Writing articles is just like talking with your friends. Imagine that you are out and you strike upon a topic that you are really interested in. Do you find that you are stuck for words? Perhaps you can’t quite find the right angle? Of course not! Talking about something you’re passionate about is the easiest thing ever, and a lot of fun besides. When running a blog, the little extras are not too difficult either: finding gorgeous photos and informative links. If you are a pro at surfing the web, making the jump to contributing to it is not difficult at all.


Finally, writing and publishing your own blog is easy because once you start, you’ll find out how much fun it is and it will not feel like work at all. You will be hooked and won’t want to do anything else. Your friends will end up having to read your blog to find out how you’re doing. Besides, running a blog is a great way to meet new people: the internet is so big that finding like minded-people is easier than in real life sometimes.


So what are you waiting for?
