I hear this a lot. Why even attempt to start a blog in 2019? Everyone is blogging so you can’t make it big anymore. There is no point.
I’m here to tell you, you can start a successful blog in 2019! Blogging is still so new and it’s growing all the time! Brands and marketing teams are getting even more familiar with working with influencers, and there is a ton of room to grow as your own blogging business! 2019 is the perfect time to start a blog, and to grow it as slow or as fast as you want it to grow!
Here are my reasons why it’s a great time to start a blog in 2019.
- The industry is still so new, and nothing is set and concrete as far as industry standard. There are so many bloggers out there that break new glass ceilings everyday, so why can’t you do something like that!
- Creativity on social media will always be popular. Being creative and sharing what you love will always attract people on the internet. People love to read, learn, and connect with others, so a blog is a great way to do that.
- Social media lacks authenticity, so being authentic on your own space in the internet will show growth. A blog is a great way to share your thoughts, hobbies, passions, and what you stand for. It’s also a place where people are fake. In 2019, people are seeing past the influencer BS and sticking with the authentic and real people. By starting a blog that’s real and authentic, you will find that people LOVE what you share!
- Brands are seeing the value of working with influencers, which means that you can start a legitimate business building a blog and working with brands! One of my favorite things about blogging is getting to work with brands I love! And also getting paid to do it! Brands more than ever are using this as one of their market strategies, and are also working with micro-influencers even more than ever! But remember to work with brands you stand by!
- There are many ways to share what you love online, but the most authentic and easy way to do it is through a website! You own this space and you can make it whatever you want! Other social platforms don’t offer that level of complete control.
I hope you have seen some great reasons to start a blog in 2019! Blogging is an exciting industry to be in, and it’s fun to grow with the industry! I challenge you to avoid listening to the negative people out there saying you couldn’t ever make it in the industry. The fact of the matter is, there is only one you, so you will always be unique! So share that and make a business you are proud of!
