Growing Your Platform: Finding Your Blogging Passion

By Kathryn

There are as many reasons to blog as there are blogs on the internet today. Growing a successful blog means finding your niche and then developing around that niche. The best way to choose the direction of your blog is to find out where your passion lies and then pursue that passion.

    1. What are you talents? Make a list of all those things that you are good at doing. Ask your family and friends to make a list as well. You may be surprised at all of the things that you have the ability to do.

    2. What are your gifts? These are the things that really can’t be learned like making friends easily or being extremely giving.

    3. What are your titles? You are looking for potential readers and you speak best to those that are in the same position as you are in. Do you work at home? You will be in a position to help other WAH individuals. Are you a mother? Your posts could be a breath of fresh air to other mothers. Write out a list of all your different titles.

Put each list in order of those things that are most important to you. By looking at the talents, gifts and titles that you consider to be important you will begin to unlock your passion and discover the best niche for your blogging endeavor.

Kathryn's reason for blogging is to help others fulfill their passions and dreams as she has been able to do by being a freelance writer. She has written an E-book called "Make Money Writing" to help achieve this goal. She is also a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling mom of boys.
