Are you thinking of starting a blog?

Then this post is for you.

There’s a lot of noise on the internet. If you type in Google ‘How to Blog’, you will get millions of articles, which is frankly overwhelming.

So I wrote this article to show you the 5 most important things you need to consider before you start blogging.

Here are 5 things to consider:

  1. Your niche (your topic)
  2. Your tribe (your target person/audience)
  3. Blogging platform (WordPress or Blogger?)
  4. Your end goal (what does success mean to you?)
  5. Your networks (your mentor/peers)
  1. Your Niche (your topic)

The Urban Dictionary (lol) defines your niche as a “position or activity that particularly suits somebody’s talents and personality or that somebody can make his or her own”. For example, she carved out her own niche in the industry”.

I love this definition because your niche is really about you at the end of the day. Why would you want to start a blog about something you don’t care about?
