“Winners are people with definite purpose in life.” – Denis Waitley
Purpose means that you have a reason for which something exists or is done, made or used.
By now you are probably thinking to yourself, “I know my purpose and my purpose is making money.” Well, making money is good, but money can’t be the sole driving force behind why you blog. I think money is a great incentive for you to work hard at doing your best (who doesn‘t like money), but money can sometimes get in the way of your purpose.
Step back and ask yourself this, “Why does my blog exist and what is my blog’s purpose?”
Here are three (3) ways you can blog with purpose.
- Always keep your eyes on your purpose. Whenever you sit down to write an article keep the purpose of your blog in mind. This will help you stay focused on producing relevant content for your blog.
- Write with your readers in mind. If you don’t know what your readers want, ask them. The only way you will know is to ask. You can also look through your comments and get an idea of what people chime in on the most. Don’t forget to check your stats for what people are searching for too.
- Decide what you want to accomplish. Your articles must be written in such a way that your readers know your purpose. Don’t make them wonder about the message you are trying to convey. Make your readers know and see what your blog is all about.
If you always keep your purpose in mind, then you should have no problems producing beneficial, useful and helpful content. Be consistent with producing meaningful content and you will see that your readers will support you even more. Not only that, the money will roll in, but you must always keep the purpose of your blog in the forefront.
