Learn To Start A Blog For Free – 10 Reasons You’ll Never Do it

You’re probably here because you want to learn to start a blog and I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it’s most likely not going to happen, even if it’s free.

So many people are making a good living from just one blog these days and it’s creating a lot of buzz around this new found career path.

Most people consider starting a blog or dream about making money from a blog but never even get past the research stage.

There are numerous barriers between you and your first profitable blog but if you read on, you’ll see that these barriers are easily surpassed.

Below are the 10 Reasons You’ll Never Start A Blog……

 

1. Don’t Know How

The number one reason people never learn to start a blog is simply because they don’t know how.

Even people with decent computer skills and knowledge will tell you that they don’t know how to start a blog or website.

This is a really amusing answer because it really isn’t very hard at all. When someone says they don’t know how to do it, they’re just assuming that they don’t know how.

There are so many awesome and simple step-by-step guides nowadays that will walk anyone through the process.

You could have a blog up and running within a day.

 

2. You Don’t Think It’s Profitable

I’m sure you’ve heard of bloggers making a great living and working from anywhere in the world. Sounds wonderful.

So we all know that bloggers can make great money but that’s not enough to convince us.

The problem is that although we know blogging can be profitable for some people, most of us think that we aren’t capable of making it work for ourselves.

Most people assume that only the experts that have been blogging for decades can make a go of it.

This is such a strong assumption that it will deter most of you from even giving it a try. Even if someone tells you that there’s a way for beginners to do it.

 

3. You Aren’t A Writer

You have no idea how many people have used this excuse on me.

So many people think that you need to be a writer with an English degree in order to be a blogger but that’s so misguided.

This was actually one of the reasons I took so long to start my first blog. I didn’t think my writing skills were good enough.

I have no university education not to mention computer skills so I assumed that I had no hope of having a successful blog.

Boy was I wrong and I’m sure glad I did enough internet research to find a good training program.

What I learned is that you only need basic writing skills.

As long as you stay true to yourself and provide useful or interesting content then people will enjoy reading it even if there are some typos or grammar problems.

You just have to write as though you’re talking to a friend. Just communicate the same way you do everyday and you’ll be fine.

 

4. You Don’t Have Time

Most of us are busy trying to make ends meet while also spending time with loved ones.

Life can be a tough balancing act and finding time to start a new endeavor might seem like a major stretch.

This barrier is more than enough to prevent some of you from starting a blog.

There is a way around this.

What most people don’t know is that you don’t need to commit a huge amount of time to this. Especially at the beginning.

And you certainly don’t need to quit your job.

What I did and what most people do is they start very small and slow.

You spend an hour here and there just tinkering and learning about it. There are free courses you can take that will walk you through the early steps and you don’t need to rush.

You’ll see that it starts to make progress and most likely you’ll love the time you spend on it.

Before you know it you’ll be working on it instead of watching tv because you enjoy it more.

Once the money starts coming in you’ll no doubt find the time to work on it more.

 

5. Too Shy

Some of you out there will be too shy or even embarrassed to start your own blog.

This is a real thing. Some people are very concerned with what others think and they don’t want to be deemed as foolish for thinking that they can learn how to start a blog for profit.

There are ways around this too.

You can use a ghost writer name. You don’t need to use your real name on the blog and then nobody will know it’s you, then you just don’t have to tell people about it.

Once it’s successful you’ll probably get over this fear and most likely tell people about it out of pride.

 

6. Fear Of Failure

I think we’ve all felt this at one time or another. Nobody likes to fail but it’s one of the best ways to learn something or improve ourselves.

Lots of you will never attempt to start a blog because you don’t want to fail.

If you avoid trying something new than you’ll never fail. (or so you think)

This is not a good way to go through life. We all know that failure is just a part of life but sometimes even knowing this we allow that fear to get in the way of our dreams.

I only have one thing to say about this…….

If you use the same training program that I used your chance at success is very very high.

 

7. You Don’t Know What Your Topic Should Be

Choosing a topic or “Niche” can be very challenging. If you’re not one of the lucky ones who has a passion for something then you might find this a real barrier.

The fact of the matter is that there are a lot of really great techniques for coming up with an idea for a blog.

I actually wrote an article all about niche selection and it outlines many different ways of figuring this out.

Even if you think you aren’t passionate enough about one single topic, you can still find a profitable blog topic.

 

8. Too Overwhelming

overwhelmed

 

Starting a blog can seem a little bit overwhelming at first. This can me more than enough of an excuse for many of you to opt out of this endeavor.

It’s true that there are a lot of decisions to make…..

  • blog topic
  • domain name
  • blog name
  • choosing a training program
  • technical jargon
  • monetization

The most important factor for getting through all of this is the training.

The right training program will walk you through all of the steps in exactly the right order taking out all the guess work.

 

9. You Aren’t Good With Computers

Lots of people think that you need to be a computer whizz in order to start a blog and this hurdle is all that stands in the way of their dreams.

I’m here to tell you that this is not true. You really just need very basic computer skills.

If you can search on Google, Facebook or write an email then you have the skills it requires to succeed.

I’m not saying that you’ll be able to just hop onto WordPress and start building your website without help.

You’ll need help and lots of it.

You won’t just need a list of directions either, you’ll need 1-on-1 support, live chat, over the shoulder video training and lots of it.

This is again why I keep getting back to the training program. If you choose the wrong training program you’ll really struggle with this stuff.

The good news is that with the right training program you won’t have to worry about these things.

 

10. Worried About Scams

Online scams are rampant and they truly are something to worry about if you’re looking for some training.

Lots of people get scammed every single day and that’s a huge reason why a lot of you might shy away from learning to start a blog.

If you Google, “learn to start a blog” you’ll probably come across a lot of scams.

So many websites out there are preying on people who want to make some extra cash online and they’ll lie to you in order to get your money.

There are some easy ways to avoid falling victim to these scams.

First, lookout for websites that make huge promises. Promises like, “You’ll make $5000 per day within a week”.

These are always lies because no program out there can make that much money that fast. No blogger on earth has ever done it.

You need to find respectable training programs and preferably one that will let you try out the training for free before you pay anything.

 

 

Final Thoughts

I’m sure that you can find at least one of these 10 reasons that you’ve thought about before.

If you really want to learn to start a blog or a website for profit then hopefully this list has helped you get over one or some of your fears.

The fact is that it’s way easier than most people think and the only way to figure that out is to start today.

Blogging has become a huge part of my life in just a couple years and it really has made my life better.

If you told me 3 years ago that I’d be making a living with my own blog I’d say you’re crazy.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions or leave me comments using the box below.

I love to interact with my readers especially if it gives me a chance to help you.
