Launching a blog is a very exciting proposition for beginners and experienced entrepreneurs alike. Whether your goal is to make money or to just publish your ideas and opinions, a new blog gives you the space to build something based on your own vision.
I have launched my fair share of blogs with varying degrees of success and I know how easy it is to get caught up in the excitement about starting a new project and forget to think through all the hard work it actually takes to make it successful. Setting up a new blog is very easy. but customizing it to your own specs and creating a healthy amount of high quality content takes a lot of time and energy.
So before you even buy a domain name, make sure you are diving into a project that you are passionate about and that will keep you motivated through the highs and lows.
I have personally bought a ton of domain names thinking I was about to develop the next great business idea, but soon realized I didn’t have the time and in most cases, the passion to follow through on it. Granted, domain names typically cost less than $10, so the financial loss is minimal. But you can save yourself a lot of time, by thinking through and focusing on the projects that will mean the most to you.
