Start Your Own Family Blog With Blogger


Do you want to start a new family blog?


Today big families are more fragmented than ever and for some, it is important to know what other family members are up to. We are very fortunate to have access to the world wide web where we can get information about other family members in different parts of the world instantly.



It is therefore important to know how to set up a Blog with family news for everybody to see. This will keep all members of the family informed of what is happening in their family circle.

How can I start a family blog?


Blogger is a platform that offers a simple solution to those who do not want to become too technical with such a venture.

Before starting your family blog you must know that this type of blogging is not hard work and you know that your audience will benefit from the information. You must ask yourself why will I start a blog like this and there are many reasons such as:
  • Just being able to know what is happening on a daily basis with other family members in different parts of the world.
  • Follow family members on their travel trips and join the experience.
  • Keep up to date with birthdays, births and other celebrations in life. 
  • Enjoy and experience their achievements in life as if you were there.
Just sign up for your Blogger account, pick a theme and set up your preferences under the account settings. This takes minutes and you will be ready to share.

What is wrong with Social Media sharing?


I know there are social platforms that can be used for sharing family news which is probably an easier option but it lacks the personality and the feeling of a real family.

Often it is also shared with other people who are not direct family and have no interest in what your family is up to.

At times you are also restricted in the content that you share but on Blogger it is only your creativity that will limit you.

Making use of Blogger you can set up a Blog that is dedicated to only you and your family members.

Blogger offers the ability to remove your blog from the public eye by setting it as private and only accessible by those who the family chooses to share the information with.

Blogger can also provide permission for more than one person to contribute to the blog. This will enable you to share content from all parts of the world where ever your family is situated.

What can I share on Blogger? 


The possibilities of sharing your content are unlimited whether it be pictures, video or sound files all members can now enjoy this experience.

Blogger is a free platform and once your account is created you can set up the basics of what it will look like. All other family members can then join in and contribute content to make the blog an enjoyable family newsletter.

You do not need to be Tech Savvy to attempt this Venture as Blogger has made it as simple as possible to enjoy writing your blogs.

Summary


Become the News Editor you always wanted to be. Starting a family blog will ensure that your family stay in touch and share experiences as if no one has ever left.

Best Blogging Secrets Revealed

blogging tips and advice

Is there a secret for making a blog successful?



This is a question that most bloggers will ask themselves whether they are newbies or long-time bloggers. After a few months of blogging with no success and a low visit count, it is normal that you will start doubting your blogging ability.
It can be disheartening if you are putting a lot of work into your blog and you feel you are not achieving the results you initially thought is possible with your niche.
Right from the start, I can tell you that there is no secret in blogging but there are a few pointers that will help you to become successful.

So what makes you a successful Blogger? 


If you have been blogging for a while you will come to realize that people are not successful by chance and that it took a lot of hard work to get there.
I had a look at my process through my blogging career and can only share what I have learned over a long period of time by giving you a few pointers in the right direction.
We are looking at how successful or perceived to be successful bloggers have made it and from there we can only learn new lessons.

Here are some facts about blogging success



Fact 1: 


Successful bloggers spent a lot of hard work and time on creating content that will engage their audiences through their blogs. It is therefore not incorrect to say that the quality and usefulness of your content are the most important part of blogging.
Content creation takes a lot of time and they use other resources such as ghostwriters and part-time blogger assist in maintaining a constant stream of new content. It is possible for a blogger to create own content but we all know that this is hard work.

Fact 2: 

Creativity also plays a big role in how successful your blog is. A blogger needs to be very creative when it comes to creating content and it also plays a major role in the visual aspects of your blog.
The overload of information on the web has made the competition tougher and visitors to your site will only stick if they feel there is value to be found.

Fact 3: 

Consistency in putting your content out there also plays a major role in how quickly your blog will grow. Once you start providing content to your audience they will expect more and will expect it on a regular basis to keep them coming back.
Caution must be taken that you do not overload or annoy your audience with too much information. There is a thinking that daily posts will attract a bigger audience but I have found that less frequent works better for me as this builds up a following of return visitors. 

If you are aiming at just building up visits then it will work for you to post up to 3 times a day but does your content really make a difference to your audience?

Fact 4:

Persistency is also key to how you will achieve results over a period of time. If you are not successful at first it is not a problem as long as you keep providing content that is useful it will pay off in the long run.
The web today consist of an overload of information but people browsing the web will always look for another opinion only because it is available and by being persistent you will very shortly be found and followed.
There is just too much hard work going into blogging for you to give up after only a few months of trying. Give it a chance and carry on for as long as you must because one day it will pay off. 

It is a fact that you will pick up from successful bloggers and that is that they have been going for over 10 years or longer before being recognized. It can also be partially contributed to the fact that there have been many positive developments in how the web operates through the years and by being there when it happened these bloggers could make use of it.

Fact 5: 

Marketing your blog is probably the second most important factor of your success rate. You will see that all the successful Bloggers on the web are people who spend most of their time marketing their blog and content on different platforms.
Only you will know which platform is the best for you and the only advice I can give is to stick to one or two platforms for your marketing purposes. 

This is how you will get noticed and start building a following because you will be perceived as knowledgeable in your niche. By following all the platforms you will drown in a sea of competition.

Summary


So we can see now there is no secret in becoming a successful Blogger but what we know is that it takes hard work and good content over a period of time. Believe me, it does not happen overnight.
