Blogging 101 Tips & Tools
Why do you want to start a blog?
Some people just start a blog for fun…that’s okay but this site’s not for you. Simply Hatch is about helping people with blogging 101 guides to start a blog and make money. If you want to post for your friends, use a blog to talk about yourself or promote your favorite cause, that’s fine but I can’t help you.
Starting a blog is a serious business. It’s one of the fastest businesses to start, you can run it as a side hustle, but not everyone is successful. You have to be focused on the goal of making money.
Your blog needs to be helpful. It needs to be targeted at the questions your readers or potential readers are asking. You need to write posts that will pop up in search results.
It’s no good thinking “I’ll just write about a topic that interests me, I’m sure my readers will like it”. You need to know your readers are actively searching for a post just like the one you’re writing.
Many bloggers find this hard to get their head round. They write great posts but no-one’s searching for the topics they’re writing about. A blog has to have an audience.
Fulfil a need, solve a problem or provide information. Target your post at your audience. That way you’ll get results.
