Blogging can be fun, but a lot of “wanna be bloggers” have pre-conceived notions about blogging. These notions or myths restrict us from starting a blog and missing out on the fun of blogging 🙂
Below are 6 common blogging myths
Blogging is expensive
With the availability of open source blogging platforms such as WordPress, Tumblr, and Blogger, you can start and enjoy an income-generating blog without spending a dollar for it. Even plugins and performance booster tools for blogs are free! However, if you want to upgrade your blogs, you may have to spend some cash on site upgrades to adhere major search engines’ demands in crawling and indexing.
Blogging is only for computer geeks
You can be a computer geek by devoting your entire life to blogging, but you don’t need to be a computer geek to blog. I know a lot of bloggers who use only Microsoft Word and basic Web knowledge to achieve promising site rank and ROI for their blogs.
Blogging is only for introverts
This is completely wrong. Blogging can be used to create networks and connect to people outside the realms of your home. It is actually a method that can transform introverts to extroverts.
Blogging is a boring job
Blogging only becomes boring if you blog about mundane topics. However, if you make use of its power to reach other countries and people outside your life and network, you can actually find blogging as a very enjoyable lifestyle.
Blogging is only for degree holders and academically gifted people
This is a fallacy. There are popular blogs on the Web that are owned by college dropouts, jobless individuals, and has-been superstars. Blogging requires creativity and knowledge, not impressive resumes.
Blogging is only for popular people
The truth is that there are few popular people who blog. Famous people are often too busy with their schedules to spend some time just writing a sensible post. The more beautiful truth is that blogging has brought fame to many ordinary people. In fact, many people put up blogs in the hopes of becoming a celebrity on the Web.
