Do you blog for yourself?
Do you blog to share your information, i.e. the targetted group?
Do you blog for your friends?
Do you blog for fame?
Or do you blog for the search engines?
If you are thinking of making money from blogging, the last option is what you should focus on.
Blogging for self will not make you rich.
Blog for the targeted group is not only full of pressure because they expect you to keep out performÂ your previous post but they also ignore your ads.
Blogging for friends is such a waste of time because 10 may like it and suddenly one will break you.
Blogging for fame is downright foolish because you have to make a complete fool of yourself before you get famous, usually. Either post a naked photo of yourself, make yourself look like an idiot or portray yourself to be a total bitch (think Perez).
So, folks, one good tip you should keep chanting to yourself. Blog for the search engines. It doesn’t matter which niche topic. Know what the search engines, i.e. the million of internet users, are looking for. And you will soon see traffic and money trickling in. Bit by bit but you will get there eventually.
However, that said, you need to achieve a balance by having friends, touch base with your own needs and feelings and have the desire to be a little famous, at least. And of course, you need good contents too.
And the only way I can achieve the balance is of course, create several niche blogs and compartmentalize my thoughts. Now when I look at my own blogs aggregator, I see a pattern there. It is a whole potpourri of my thoughts, broken down into different blogs.
