What I discovered is that blogging or writing is not as hard as you think, it’ll become easier if you change your perspective towards it and enjoy.

Who Can Become a Blogger?

So, how to become a blogger?

Build Passion towards Writing

Being a blogger, you can’t write whatever you want. Your writing has to make sense; it should help your readers. So, if you’re genuinely not passionate about writing, then your readers might have to face a tough time grasping your thoughts.

Writing Blogs isn’t a rocket science, anyone can write blog posts without any age reference. But you have to build a passion towards writing and you shouldn’t consider writing as work; otherwise you might lose your enthusiasm in blogging.

Tips for writing

  • Write at least 500 words daily
  • Have a notepad
  • Improve your writing till you reach perfection (I’m still trying)

Adopt Creativity

Having a good set of writing skills alone can’t make you a good blogger or writer; you need another major ingredient – creativity.

As a blogger, I continuously look for creative ideas to write on. Sometimes being creative at work is hard, but we had to figure it out. You can’t steal other people’s creative ideas in blogosphere, but you can follow other people’s path to get inspire. Creative writing is very important in blogging and others can’t teach you, you have to learn it yourself.

Tips to build creativity

  • Don’t copy-paste your social network statuses from others; instead share your own thoughts or jokes
  • Use Twitter, which will help you to play with words and fuel your creativity
  • Read creative books

Adopt Patience and Persistence

Bloggers are usually cool people who don’t like to get into the corporate world, or doesn’t want to work for others. But it isn’t easy as it sounds, as we need tons of patience and persistence. If you want to be a blogger, make sure you have a hard degree of patience and persistence. If not, try to build these qualities. Everyone has their own personalities and different DNA’s from birth, but it is possible to change your personalities to a certain extent.

Tips to build Patience

  • Don’t get stressed, or quit doing stressed work
  • Always stay in the right mindset; slow down your thinking process

Build Passion for Reading

There is no way you could be a blogger without reading. It is no-brainer that blogging requires continues ideas and thoughts. By reading, you get a lot of inspiring ideas and creative thoughts to write on. It is utterly necessary to read other blogs and books on a daily basis. As you know blogging is all about sharing information and if you stop reading, you can’t stay updated.

Tips for reading

  • List out the top blogs from your niche and subscribe to their RSS feeds
  • If you’re using a smartphone, download Apps like feedly which is very smooth for reading
  • Read eBooks related to your niche

Conclusion

You don’t have to be an engineer or scientist to be a blogger, anyone without a qualification or degree can become blogger and blogging is not a rocket-science; all you need is a passion for writing and reading. It is never too late to become a blogger, you can start your Blogging journey from now.              [Image credit: Jon_Tucker]

    Hi Adithya,

    All of the reasons you shared why people should blog is definitely correct. I think it really depends on what you want to do with it that can change things.

    Like if you just want to blog to share your views or opinions then you can definitely just sign up for a free blogging platform if you don’t care anything about owning your own content or worry about setting it up.

    If you want to make a business out of it though then you definitely need to invest and get a self-hosted blog and I wrote about this recently as to why. But blogging isn’t just about writing. I only wish it were.

    You definitely do have to be passionate about your subject but you have to also know how to get people to your content, how to get them interested in what you share, how to get them to contribute by voicing their opinions and how to get them to spread the word about your content. Without any of those things no one will ever visit and you’ll go nowhere.

    We can write the best content in the world but if no one sees it then it’s just for our viewing pleasure.

    I do love blogging and I encourage everyone to do it but they do need to be forewarned that there is a lot more to it then just writing posts.
