|5 Reasons You Should Start Your Blog This New Year by TFhostNigeria: 5:24pm On Jan 14|
The holidays always provide downtime for people to rest and recharge before heading into the new year. With all the free time you’ll have during this season, this is the perfect time to set goals and plot the next steps in your website journey.
Have you been itching to start a blog? Here are the 5 reasons you should get off the couch and start your blog this holiday season.
You can save a ton with our awesome sale
For most bloggers, January is the month where traffic starts to nose dive, which is why you have to capitalize on the awesome Black Friday sales headed your way. Why stockpile on clothes and tech devices when you can invest in your blog by purchasing a web hosting plan for your site. TFhost is giving new customers the gift of a basic shared hosting plan for
₦2200/yearly. If you are just beginning your web building journey, a micro shared hosting plan is perfect for launching a blog site. Your plan includes 1GB of storage, 20 email accounts, and free .com.ng domain and SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to keep your site protected. With a sale this great, there’s nothing stopping you from starting your blog.
2. The new year spirit will fill you with inspiration
Every great writer thrives off of inspiration that helps them create innovative content. The holidays provide countless options for the types of content you can create for a wide range of audiences. Use this new spirit to your advantage by creating content that will be timely and resonate with people who are actively seeking posts, pictures, or media that is festive and fun. Blogs can be an interactive experience that reflects your personality and introduces visitors to what you are passionate about.
Here are a few examples of blog content people will enjoy:
Stocking stuffer ideas
New year gift guides
Favorite seasonal recipes
How to shop on a budget
Your favorite in-store sales
If your think tank is running on low, reflect on what excites or interests you during the holidays and get creative.
3. You can work ahead and start on your New Year’s resolutions
You are already setting yourself up for success by launching your website as 2019 begins. Look at the new year as an opportunity to create an plan to meet your goals for your blog. Time is of the essence when you are in the business of blogging, and you should get ahead of the curve by starting now rather than later. You can create plans for your blog based on how your blogs have performed during the holidays. Maybe you were experimenting with a certain theme or style for the holiday season and want to transition into a different format. You can use this time to lay the foundation for your site by creating blogs you enjoy and planning for your future content.
4. You can create your content calendar at the beginning of the new year
Nothing is better for your blog than preparedness. You can start by evaluating the content you enjoyed writing the most. Before writing your content calendar, you should evaluate how much time you can devote to posting over the next year. By starting your blog now, you can set realistic goals for 2019. Writing out a detailed content calendar will help you develop a timely posting schedule and decide what type of content you plan to create. As you continue to build an audience over the holiday season, how often you post your content will be vital to your site’s success. Whether you enjoy an old-fashioned planner—like me— or a spreadsheet, there are various resources you can use to help keep you organized. Online management tools like Trello and Coschedule offer different prices and monthly plans to keep you consistent and on track with your goals.
5. You’re off work and maybe have time to start writing
However, in your spare time you can start putting your pen to paper and get some writing done. Blogs don’t have a set format, so you can practice different types of writing styles you may want for your site. A daily writing regime will help you get comfortable with your tone and assist in identifying who your blogs’ target audience will be. Your target audience is a major factor in how you write, therefore you should create content that will resonate with them and keep them coming back for more. Even if you end up with a handful of drafts, you are making a great first step in the direction of launching a successful blog.
Take a walk and get inspired by the magic of the holiday season. Whether you are a new TFhost customer purchasing a basic shared hosting plan for Black Friday or Cyber Monday or a current user who is ready to take their site to the next level with different deals, the time to start is now. Your blog is ready to be launched, what are you waiting for?
