Why Start a Blog?

There are so many new blogs being started every day that you have to wonder why. They originally started out as a way for people to keep an online journal. Now they're so much more.

Some blogs try to provide good information about a specific niche. Others are just miscellaneous ramblings about anything and everything. It's also becoming a good way for friends to keep up with each other.

There's also a lot of blogs out there that are completely focused on trying to make money. If this is the reason you plan on starting a blog, then you're almost surely going to fail.

You've got to have good content that people will want to read. You can't just throw crappy content up and expect to have hundreds of visitors. People can also tell if you're in it just for the money.

You should enjoy what you're blogging about and also be prepared to keep fresh content on your site. You're site traffic will be terrible if you update your blog sporadically.

Is a blog right for you? Only you will know, but don't expect people to read mindless drivel.
