How do you respond to blogging sell?

Demystifying blogging

If you are pretty busy on the net, especially on social media like I am, depending on who you’re connected with you’ll probably be bombarded with lots of messages saying you need to have a blog, # number of reasons why to have a blog, what a blog has done for XYZ business, what happens if you don’t have a blog, etc, etc.

Then there are two ways of looking at these messages. If you already have a blog, you might be tempted to fill in the gaps within your knowledge to see if you can make your blog better (I certainly fall into that camp). If you don’t have a blog, the constant pressure of starting a blog when you don’t know how or are a bit wary of new technology can be very daunting.

If the first party respond, they may gain some more information and if they put it into practice may benefit from it. But the second party will only get more confused when they receive an e-book full of jargon and digital marketing practices they’ve never heard of before. If they manage to plough their way through it all, it may well put them off ever attempting blogging.

Not everybody has the know-how or determination to self-learn. Certainly when I first started I was dazzled by the tech stuff, it seemed so way out and complicated. But I wanted to do it myself, and certainly I made lots of mistakes alongside all the successes, but there was enough of the latter to encourage me to continue.

And now I want to share those successes (and mistakes so you don’t make them) to prevent you from going through the same angst and stress. Even so, I hope you will have different problems, notwithstanding that you will come to me to sort them out, but that it’s important to have difficulties in our lives to improve them and appreciate the better times.

So if you aren’t someone who has the time or inclination to stumble through the blogging maze, or is bamboozled by the technical talk found in most blogging guides, take a look at my tuition packages. The Fairy Blog Mother was formed to help non-technical folk start up a blog, and gain the confidence to continue with it. And of course I will benefit further if you tell me what you want so I can create new courses, or let me know if anything continues to be confusing so I can correct and improve it.
