What Blogging Can (and Cannot) Do for You

When people come to my blog, they have a lot of questions for me.
Things like:

  • How do I blog?
  • What should I blog about?
  • Why should I blog?
  • Who should I blog for?
  • When should I start blogging?
  • So many questions, so little time…

    Im sure a lot of the nice ladies and gentlemen that ask me these questions think that blogs can do stuff for them. They think blogging can bring them money, power, and other nice things like fame, fortune, book deals, and speaking engagements.

    In this post, I’m going to tell you what blogging can do for you and what blogging cannot do for you.

    Yes – you can make money from blogging but blogging cannot be your business model. You can make cash, but you still need a plan.

    Yes – blogging can bring you things like popularity but it cannot give you a message. You can have people following you everywhere and reading your blog. But you have to have something to say to them.

    Yes – Blogging can get you book deals, it has been done time and time again.
    Blogging can get you speaking engagements – that’s easy.
    Blogging can get you media exposure on TV and radio.

    But, no, none of these things happen automatically just because you’ve set up a blog. Think about it. Even if you drove a Lexus, you’d still need to understand how it works. In the same way, you still need to press the right buttons in order for blogging to work for you.
