If my first love is finance, precisely personal finance, then you can say that my second love is writing. I love to write in order to express my ideas; that’s why I started this blog! I feel that there’s a writer in each one of you. I have seen many people having financial knowledge and wanting to write, but hesitate whether or not they would be able to express their ideas clearly. If you’re one of them, you can go through these points, which will help you organize your ideas and put them in writing. Reading your personal finance blog will help others manage their financial life in a better way.
Here are 5 tips to start writing for your financial blog:
Decide on a topic or pen down your experience –
At first, decide on what topic you want to write. You should choose a subject which you’re comfortable to write. After selecting a topic, you might need to select a sub-topic for your first financial blog post. For example, you may choose to write on “How to save money”; you may choose a sub-topic “How to save money on a vacation”. You can pen down your own experience as well, like, how you enjoyed your last vacation on a budget.
Never compromise with quality –
Being a blogger, your most important job is to make your readers interested towards your posts. Therefore, always write good quality informative content. It is your duty to satisfy your readers by providing useful information.
Upload posts in regular intervals –
When your readers will get good information, they’ll wait for your new posts. So, it is better to be consistent with your blog posts. Initially, you can post one article per week, but it’s better if you select a particular day on which you’ll post your new article. However, it may not be mandatory to post on that day itself. The idea is to have updates on regular intervals.
If possible, write on current topics –
You need to update yourself regularly on news and current happenings, so that you can inform your readers about the same. If you do this, your readers will be hooked towards your blog.
Read and comment on other personal finance blogs –
When you read other blogs, leave a comment regarding what you felt about a post. They will come and check your blog posts, too. You can also give links to other blogs, which you like, and there are chances that they will also give a link to your blog. This way, you can have a number of readers directed to your write-up.
