How To Master Blogging From The Comfort Of Your Home

    By now, you know that creating a blog is a great way for parents to earn a little extra on the side and give them a modest but reliable stream of additional income. If you finally feel you’re ready to start a blog, you might feel a little overwhelmed by the task at hand. Newcomers quickly realise how difficult it can be to write 500, 1000, or even 1500 words of valuable and original copy, but this doesn’t mean it’s impossible. If you’re looking for the best ways to master blogging, consider these tips.

Get Into a Routine

Routines are crucial for maintaining momentum and ensuring that you get things done. Like any new habit, it can take time to develop a routine for your blog, yet this makes consistency even more important. 

 

Dedicate some time in the day – whether first thing in the morning, over lunch or whenever you can find the time – to write something. It doesn’t need to be published right now, but it will give you something to work with.

But Don’t Force Anything

Anyone who has worked in a creative industry knows how frustrating it can be when the ideas simply do not materialise. When working on your blog, you may think that anything is better than nothing, so you end up forcing something that isn’t valuable and not even worth posting. 


Forcing things can affect the quality of your content and make readers wonder why they have visited your site. Instead of forcing it, find the time where you’re most productive and develop the discipline to capture this motivation and use it for good.

Design a Space For Working

You’ll quickly discover that working from the kitchen table or sofa is not going to last. This area is too full of distractions; you are constantly bombarded by requests for food or lifts to friends’ houses. You love your family for sure, but they don’t seem to grasp that you’re working


A dedicated space for working is the best way to overcome this. A spare bedroom or even building Garden Rooms can give you the home office you need to work on your craft. Establish rules within the household that everyone is to leave you in peace if the door is closed.

Write About Things That Excite You

You will never engage your readers if you do not feel passionate about whatever topics you cover. Your lack of passion will shine through your writing, so try to write about things that excite you. 

 

If you’re a travel blogger, discuss places you’ve been or places you want to go. If you offer advice on parenthood, share stories that fill you with joy. These are just some examples, and there are sure to be a variety of exciting topics you can write about.

Mastered

Blogging isn’t easy, especially not at first and while you strive to write something no one else has covered before (which is impossible, by the way). However, even if you lightly brush around similar topics and themes, your content will still be unique because it is your experience. By remembering this and setting up a working space that suits you, you’re well on your way towards mastering the art of blogging.
