Recently I received a comment from a newbie who is considering starting a blog, but doesn’t know what to blog about. The commenter posed the familiar question “What should I blog about?”
I started to compose a post in which I was going to give the same advice that has no doubt been addressed several times over on the internet. I was about to offer the advice that you should blog about what you enjoy, what you’re passionate about, yadda, yadda yadda.
I was going to share my rather limited blogging experience when I checked my ProBlogger RSS feed. The title of the article that caught my attention was “Million Dollar Blogger Interviewed.” As fate would have it, that post saved me the time and effort of having to share my experience. Why listen to me when there’s a perfectly informative interview with someone who obviously knows what he’s doing.
Alborz Fallah, The Million Dollar Blogger, started three blogs a couple of years ago. After building the blogs he soon realized that he was passionate about cars and poured his efforts into his CarAdvice.com.au blog. He spent his time and effort building it and now he’s making more than $20,000 to $30,000 each month.
I strongly suggest that anyone who is wrestling with the question of “What should I blog about?” to check out the Alborz Fallah interview. After listening to the interview, download the transcripts and study them. He offers more in the 49 minute interview than I can offer here in this post.
Learn from the experts. After studying the information, decide what you want to blog about and get to it!
