Get Started Blogging- Week #2 Do Your Research

If you have just joined in on how to start a blog series, you can go HERE to catch up.

So you decided to start a blog. The first and most important decision after making this commitment is what are you going to write about? You don’t have to be an expert on the subject you just have to have passion for it.  You need to enjoy reading about your subject and have the desire to write about it regularly. I would also suggest that you check out the article “The Importance of Choosing a Niche Topic for a Money Making Blog“.

Once you decide on a topic or niche, start researching it. Do a search for blogs with your same topic. If you enjoy what they are writing then add it to your Google Reader. If you don’t have a Google alert yet, you can set up a free account. If you subscribe to blogs through your Google Reader then as they post new content it will go directly there.

I would add at least 50 different blogs to your Reader. This will help give you an idea of what other bloggers are writing about, give you more knowledge on your subject and also give you lots of ideas to write about.

You obviously will not copy what another blogger has written, but you can always link back to another site in your article as an example or an article for them to read. Make sure to always give credit to other bloggers work. You never want to just copy and paste another bloggers work either unless you have direct permission from them.

The one thing you don’t want to do while reading other blogs is to compare yourself to them. Especially if they have been around for a while and are very successful. This would always discourage me. Instead look at them for inspiration.
