Morgan Lintons' pro tips on blogging

Now, twelve years later, blogging has become so ingrained in my daily routine that I can’t imagine what life would be like without this daily practice.

Over the years I’ve had a number of people ask me how they can get started in the blogging world. When I was traveling in Japan over the last ten days my Dad saw how much time I put into blogging during our trip and got a bit inspired, now he wants to make blogging a part of his life.

I gave him three tips to get his blog off the ground and thought I’d share them with you in case you’ve been thinking about starting a blog one of these days. If you like this article, I have plenty more to share about blogging so let me know in the comment section below if this is a topic you’d like to see me cover more regularly. Now let’s get to the tips!

3 tips to get your blog started
  1. Write a post every day – blogging is all about consistency, and writing a post every single day might sound like a lot, but it really is the bare minimum cadence you need to keep if you really want your blog to grow. Think about the publications you read? Most of them have multiple posts a day, some, like newspapers have dozens of new articles every day. If you want to build an audience, you’re going to need to get content out there on a daily basis. In the beginning, don’t worry about perfect, just worry about consistency.
  2. Know your audience – okay, so in the beginning, you won’t have an audience because nobody will be reading your blog. That being said, you should have a good idea of who you think your ideal reader would be. Stay laser-focused on content that is interesting to your specific reader. My blog is about domain names and domain investing, while I can occasionally write posts like this one, 90% or more of my articles need to be about domains and domain investing to make sure I’m providing content that my audience wants to read about.
  3. Don’t be afraid of negative comments – as many of you know, I don’t censor my comments and I don’t moderate them either. Now I’m not saying you have to do exactly what I do, but I do think you should be okay with people writing negative comments about you, or the topic you wrote about, on your blog. If you only allow positive comments you will end up losing a key component of your audience and you will limit the ability for people to have a real conversation through your blog’s comments.
