I have been a blogger for two years now and I have fallen in love with blogging ever since then. The best thing about this is that you can express yourself and share your opinions regarding anything as frequently as you like. There is no strict time duration of when and how often you should update your own website. You write on your own blog or website daily, weekly or even, monthly, if you want to. It gives you a sense of freedom and freedom to decide your path of the journey with your own website.
Journey of Blogging Since the Invention of the First Blog
It has come a long way since the first blog was started and it has emerged from being a personal blog to many types of blogs now. Initially, blogging was linked to writing about a person’s life as a web log or website log. It was a platform for sharing personal point of views that was available to only a few people earlier but now everyone can make their own website. It was just a way through people shared the story about their life. Gradually, it shaped up into a variety of blogs, fashion, lifestyle, beauty, finance and nature blogs to name a few.
Blogging as a Hobby or as a Career
When you finally decide that you want to have your own website, you will also have to decide whether it is a hobby or a career for you. As a hobby it gives you more feeling of independence to make a decision as per you like. As a career, it is altogether a different thing from a hobby, for making a career from your own website is a little bit complex than just simply blogging as a hobby. There are a few things required to call a career as a career. A career should help you make a living, pay your bills and allow yourself to buy a house. If your goal is to make a career from it then you will have to update your website more frequently and with planning each and every aspect related to it. You will have to go through the technical aspects of your website too apart from updating it.
Technical Aspects of Professional Blogging
If you have decided to be a professional blogger then you will have to know regarding a few technical aspects of it, for example, affiliate marketing, digital marketing (social media marketing and SEO) and web hosting.
