The first thing I always ask new grads when they’re first starting out is, “Do you have any dreams?”
When I told them I had a passion for blogging, they were quick to point out that they were probably not the only ones in the world who had dreamed about it.
It was an incredible awakening, but as a new graduate, you’re bound to wonder what you have to get to be a successful blogger.
And you don’t even have to work there to find out.
If you want to make it big, it’s easy to get burned out.
You can’t just start blogging, and if you’re an avid reader, you know that a good chunk of your readership will be coming from outside your niche.
It’s just a matter of finding a niche you can thrive in and then figuring out how to grow that audience.
For most of my life, I’ve struggled with finding the right niche.
After spending a decade or so trying to find my niche, I have a pretty good idea what I have and it doesn’t feel like a huge gap to me anymore.
But as a graduate, I think that’s a good thing.
When you’re looking for something, you don-t just have to look at a resume or a portfolio and think, “This is going to be good for me.”
You also need to think about what your audience is like, and how to reach them.
If your audience isn’t big enough, you won’t have the traffic you need to reach your goals.
For me, I like to think of my niche as being one of those little niches I could have if I focused on it enough.
I want to be able to write about a certain type of product, or a particular genre, or just write about something that I’m passionate about.
My first few months in grad school were filled with this mindset of wanting to get into that niche, but the reality is that most of the time, it wasn’t going to happen.
In fact, most of what I wrote about in my classes and the content I shared on my blog were really about topics I had already written about in other places.
This meant that I struggled a lot to find that niche.
Now, I can see why people don’t always think big when it comes to their niche.
But in the end, when I look back on what I did wrong and what I learned from my mistakes, I want everyone to be proud of the work they put in to get there.
The first step to getting a successful blog is to understand that it’s not about creating a niche; it’s about getting your readers to like it.
So before you start, take a deep breath and get some feedback.
I’ve written several pieces for the Daily Dot about the best ways to make a blog.
In particular, I wrote a piece on why it’s better to do a blog than to create one.
But there are other things you can do, too.
I have two books out now: The Complete Book of Business Writing, and The New Year’s Resume: The Definitive Guide to Writing a Business Plan.
Both of these books focus on how to make writing your first job as a writer an enjoyable experience, so don’t let your experience be limited to writing about the stuff you read on your favorite site.
Make sure that you have a solid structure, clear goals, and a solid strategy.
You’re not going to make money blogging if you can’t sell your product.
It’ll be a tough road, but I can tell you this: Your goal should be to have a blog that your readers will like.
That means building an audience that likes your content.
And I’ve found that if you do this right, your blog can help you sell your products and services faster and more efficiently than other options.
You’ll also find that a lot of people have a lot more fun when they create content for their own blog than they do for a big company.
If they’ve got a website that’s getting tons of traffic, it will help them create better content for that audience as well.
So, if you want a blog to be your first gig, then get it right the first time.
You don’t have to do anything fancy.
Just start writing.
I’ll be covering how to write a blog post on The Daily Dot soon.
