I got a nugget about blogging from The Darius Foroux Show podcast, episode titled Diversifying Income: Starting A Profitable Blog. This episode was published on June 26, 2018, about four years ago from the day I listened to this podcast. In this podcast, Foroux said he thinks he’s going to start a blog or a website about blogging. And it’s funny because I have seen his name before and read some of his articles. I did not intentionally seek out this podcast of his. I just wonder if this was the beginning of that career, which is interesting to see.
Foroux’s advice on starting your profitable blog though, was, basically, to insert your own personality and/or backstory into your content. His view is that you can probably find plenty of people writing about the same topic that you are, but what’s going to set you apart is a piece of you. That’s writing something that’s in your voice or has your perspective or literally your own personal story in it, I don’t think we need the backstories for recipes though. Just get straight to how to make the dish. At the very least, put it after all of the instructions, but that’s just my personal opinion.
Hopefully, people connect with what you have to offer and you’ll build an audience from there.
