So you’ve decided to jump start your blogging journey. Welcome again.
Blogging is a full of opportunity to earn money if you have enthusiasm, willing to do hard work and have some ability to communicate with real people.
Writing first blog post is little bit scary. Isn’t it?
For many it is just like chatting with friends.
This is my first blog post in this blog. I’m scared too. If this is your situation take a deep breath. If needed drink some fresh water. I did.
After making the blog ready to publish post most of us just start writing about the topic which we decided blogging about.
I request you not to do so. Because I want you to be successful in blogging. Instead you discuss the following 7 points in your first blog post
7 Must Have Points in Your First Blog Post and How to Write Them
1. Who you are?
In your first blog post you should write everything what your reader may want to know about you.
You are nobody in blogging world at this moment. If you want me to make friendship, at least some connection with you then I would like to know the following about you…
- Who are you?
- How are you as a person, as a family man?
- What do you do in real life?
- What is your nature, are you friendly or moody.
Not necessary you share your personal secret life. You just share what requires to make a good relationship. You want to make good relationship with your readers. Don’t you?
If you think it’ll be long enough to write in a post then you can create a separate About me page and link back it here.
Mine: As this is my first blog post I should also write about me.
I’m Liton Biswas, live in Chittagong, Bangladesh. Professionally I’m a civil engineer, working as a project manager in building construction sector.
I’m a quick learner and eager to learn new things. I read books everyday to meet this hunger of learning.
I don’t talk too much but listen everyone attentively.”

Mine: Mine is little bit long. In short, one of my high school friend, who is now a professor of a university in Michigan, is helping poor student to complete their higher study by donating money.
He is doing so by collecting fund from various sources. I wish I could donate some money to his fund.
But I couldn’t due to lack of money. I also have some credit card debt I’m struggling to pay. It frustrated me.
In the meantime I got a message from my bank account that google inc deposited about 200 US dollar in my bank account. That was happened due to my previous blog.
Although that blog isn’t created professionally yet paid me. Thus I realised anyone can make money blogging.
This incident happened during my frustrating day and it helps me to take decision that how I can help students to complete their study.
