As a blogger for many years, I have been gathering experience and I was testing all kinds of things just to see how people would react. One of the things I have learned during my blogging career is that people like reading the truth, or your real-life stories. If you try to make up a story just because nothing interesting has happened, then people will see that, and they won’t like it as much as your real stories. At first, I was trying to paint a picture of some perfect life that I was always chasing, but later I realized that the life I am living right now I far more interesting, especially for people who are reading.
Also, I have realized that combining your ultimate passion with blogging is really great because you get closer to your readers. If you try and focus on one thing in particular such as photography in my case, then you will have readers who are all interested in that. I believe that all the visitors on my blog have a passion towards photography. Here is how and why you should combine your passion with blogging.
A very unique thing about blogging is that you get to meet a lot of your visitors through the comment section of your posts. That’s why it is crucial that you always leave the comments open even if you get some hate comments from time to time. You can actually have some really adult and nice conversations with the readers of your blog. The first time I started combining photography with my blog, people were confused because they were used to reading different posts. It didn’t take long for them to realize this is the path that I choose and some left, but luckily for me, I gained a lot of new visitors since then.
BY combining the passion with your blog, you are creating a unique community that will grow much faster because you have a theme that you follow the entire time. In my case, photography helped me out a lot because I was able to not only talk about my experiences but also to show people some images of what I was talking about.
Be Brave and Patient
Being patient and brave enough to start a blog where you implement your passion is the key to success. If you are into sports, then talk about sports and make your posts interesting with the latest updates and your stance on some news. After some time, people will start to follow you and they will start to like the content that you put out. You just have to keep in mind to post quality content over quantity.
