Putting up my own blogsite is one of the best decisions that I have made in my life. The rewards and challenges that come with the creation and management of my personal blog has made my life more enjoyable and fulfilling.
There are different types of blogsites that can be found in the World Wide Web ranging from simple personal blogs to corporate and organizational ones. What makes a good blog site is its ability to attract readers through quality content. Just like any writer or publication, you need to establish your presence as a reliable source of information or insights for your blog to be a lucrative source of income. It may take years or only a few months to catch the eye of readers and advertisers depending on the amount of time and effort that you exert in rearing your blog. Corporate or organizational blogs have the option to get the services of SEO professionals and online reputation experts like Michael Fertik to manage their sites. Personal blogs rarely have the resources to support such services and would usually become learning platforms for inexperienced bloggers like me.
I take pride in crafting and growing my blog through self-study efforts and the support of family, friends and my blogging community. In a way my blog is also my baby. I watched it grow from a small idea to one that has been recognized as an Emerging Influential Blog for 2011. Thus, allowing me to reap the rewards of learning new skills and being recognized for it. Oh, and I do get some financial perks in the process too.
