Why Everybody Should Start a Lifestyle Blog
As we all get caught up in this cold commercial age of the digital world and entrepreneurs, bloggers and entrepreneurs alike are creating blogs to sell themselves. The best Digital Marketing Agency Liverpool has to offer will undeniably revel in the subsequent spike in business, but more clients means more opportunities to showcase just why they’re considered the best in the business. Not that kind of blogging, but the kind where they give you an insight into what they’ve got or what they’re thinking about.
I know I’m guilty of this. I’ve started my own lifestyle blog where I sell my advice and tips as a weight loss trainer and nutritionist. I’ve taken that to the next level and built a custom shop where I sell fitness clothing, sports nutrition supplements, and workout tools.
In short, I’ve built my own lifestyle brand and just yesterday I was talking to a friend and he told me he wanted to start a blog where he gave more information on how he lost 50 pounds. When I asked why he said “because everyone has a lifestyle blog. I want mine to be better.”
Here are a few reasons everyone should start a lifestyle blog:
You know more than a million other people. When you’re starting out, you may think “I’m just a regular guy, nobody’s going to listen to me. They won’t listen to me at all.” But that’s wrong. You don’t need a business degree or the weight of the world to have something valuable to say. Your opinion is worthy because you know things about people, people know things about you, and your readers want to learn more. Your blog is not just the occasional update on your diet or some fashion advice, it’s your lifestyle, the thing you’re trying to get into other people’s minds and living it, whether it’s through entertaining your friends or advising them on the best car to buy, spending money on or buying into.
Who you’re telling about what you know is the life’s work of many great entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs over the past fifty years. You’re not trying to sell anyone a product, you’re trying to tell the world about the things that are important in your life.
You’ll have more exposure to your friends and family. Some people like to write things for themselves and have nobody else read them. They’re like the men and women in the “The Hills” TV series, who can be seen walking around in their favourite outfit all the time. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. When I’m starting out in the blog business I like to write about things that make me feel good. I like to focus on things that can help other people. If I spend more time telling my friends and family about my successes and less time trying to sell them a product, my life’s work has been easier to manage and I’ll have more of an impact on my friends and family, which is usually the most important part of starting a new business anyway.
You’ll become more personal. Of course, many people will start a blog to talk to people. But blogging can also help you to become more personal, both in your lifestyle blog and your business blog. When you write about the things that you’re doing in your life you’re going to have more experiences and chances to find other people who are doing the same.
You won’t be exposed to bad influences. Bad influences may say things about you or maybe they don’t tell you the truth when they talk about something. This is particularly true in business, where everyone has influence and no one has to back their opinions up. Sometimes we start businesses because someone told us we can do it and it’s not until later we learn we’ve made a horrible mistake.
In business there are many bad influences as well as many good influences. When you write a blog or start a business that you are totally committed to, that’s the one you’ll rely on. If you decide to keep your blog anonymous to protect your reputation you will inevitably get more negative influences. If you want to keep your business entirely private you will suffer even more of a reduction in exposure to the “bad influences.” Either way, you will have a better attitude toward the things you’re trying to learn.
