A close friend of mine and a college classmate provided me the following questions when starting a blog. I had a chat with her in Google Hangout. We talked about our blog and how we could make it better and attract more traffic. As we went on, she provided me list of things to consider when starting a blog . If you answer them with ease, then you have a clear goal in mind on what niche and plan you should take. 1. Why you're excited about your blog? If you're excited and eager to share what you know through blogging, despite the situation you may face, whether you have a bad or awesome day, still you'll write. Maybe you have something unique and useful to say that you want the world knows.
