A lot of you are asking me about how I became a Blogger/Influencer/Content Creator and how to become one. Another interesting question is how to start a Blog and how to earn from it. Is it worth it and can you really choose this over a corporate job? I’m so excited to share this topic with you today so sit back, relax and read until the end of this post.
I’ve been blogging for more than ten years now. I get to write and share things about fashion, beauty, lifestyle, trending stuff online, how to’s, business topics and a lot more! I did not know that it will change my life, I can work anywhere and anytime I want. Yes, there are ups and downs but writing and sharing interesting ideas are my passion so I enjoy every part of this journey. Starting a blog was one of my best decision I made.
I started writing about my daily life, no intention of making money out of it or have a huge following. I just upload things that I like; makeup, recent buy clothes, cute items that I found online, nice places that I discovered, delicious foods that I eat, latest news, beauty tips and so on and so forth. I shared these blog posts to an all girls forum and from there I met and found new online friends who also share about the things they are passionate about. Some shares food recipes, some are writing about how to do makeup, nail arts, different hairstyles, some are showing their school achievements, life values etc. Everyday, we visit and update each other by reading our blogs, we built connection and learn from each other as well, I’m happy and so excited everytime I read new blogs, commented on their posts discovering new stuff and learn new things from Influencers that I look up to.
Blogging has been my creative outlet to share my stories. It was a great way to connect with people I never thought possible. Fast forward today, Blogging and sharing contents online has evolved with the rise of social media. When content creators share their passion, viewers/audience can benefit from it. They can learn from the how to’s, be inspire with the posts and look forward to your next posts.
These people who has the same interest will start to like and follow you. When you share quality contents, different local and international brands (small or big) will start to recognize you and contact you to work with them. Brands prefer to work with Bloggers/ Content Creators, Influencers because it has personal touch. Content creators have an extraordinary skills when it comes to this kind of ‘work’. It is not an easy job; we do everything – the photography/videography, editing, thinking of great ideas to post in our different platforms that could help our market. We just don’t post, we make sure that it is the best and we only share honest opinions and values.
What we, content creators always share is something people can relate to. We are happy everytime we receive comments like ‘what you share helped me a lot!’, ‘you’re my inspiration to pursue my dream’, etc. These are some of the reasons why we continue doing what we do. I also thought of investing in my blog because audience is growing and it is priceless when you know you can help people while you’re doing what you love to do.
