Not all of us took blogging seriously when we first started. For me, I just needed a platform where I could share my hair journey and review beauty products that I was interested in. I remember having only 14 followers after months of blogging. Nothing serious, right? It was very discouraging, but I kept going. Along the way, I fell in love with photography. I also fell in love with the support that I got from many, many fashion bloggers. So, I started sharing my personal style on the blog. I also shared my weight loss journey, which included some fitness tips and food recipes. Well, let's just say I was all over the place. What I failed to realize was that I was not focusing on the things that really mattered to me. I lost my focus down the road. I was not even interested in some of the things that I blogged about in the past. I struggle with knowing who my audience was. I knew that I was blogging for myself. But who else was I blogging for? I wish somebody had told me to blog about my passion before I started blogging. That would've saved me a lot of time and energy.
See, it doesn't matter what you blog about. What matters is how much you love what it is that you blog about. When you write about something that you are passionate about, you do not get discouraged. You have a topic to focus on, even if you share other random posts on the blog once in a while. You write more meaningful articles because you know who your audience is and what they expect from you on a regular basis. Your audience may not be the bloggers who stop by your blog and comment. But they are as interested as these bloggers are. They are passionate about the same things that you are passionate about. They want answers to the same questions that you have. Now that I know who my audience is, my goal is to write more related posts so I can stay on that journey with them.
Are you blogging about your passion? Do you know who your audience is? Please share with us!
