Have you been thinking about starting your own blog? Maybe you see posts being shared around on Facebook and think “I could do that,” or maybe you are interested in learning how so many bloggers always seem to get free stuff. To help you out, I’ve created this super awesome and completely non-scientific quiz to help you answer, once and for all, that age old question: Should I be a blogger?
Please choose one answer for each of the following questions.
If you got 3 or more A's:
You have a voice and you want to be heard! Self-publishing online seems like a great fit for you. It sounds like you could be a blogger that enjoys storytelling. Read as many blogs as you can and take notes on what you like and don’t like about them, this will help you find your voice. Remember, if you do start a blog, send me a Tweet so I can read it! ;)
If you got 3 or more B's:
It sounds like you are a creative person who would resonate well with readers online. If you think you’d like blogging, you might want to hone your photography skills for doing projects or sharing your creations. We have a sense we’ll be seeing you around here more often! (And don’t forget to share your content in the YMC community, you never know when a post will hit it big!)
If you got 3 or more C's:
You like your family and your me-time, and would probably do just fine to keep being a blog reader instead of a blog writer; however, if blogging is something you’d really like to try, just remember to be consistent with your approach. Blogging is a great way to connect with people online, but you can only connect with people when you’re there.
If you got 3 or more D’s:
You’ve got a lot of stuff going on, and that’s okay. Not everyone in this world was meant to be a blogger. After all, if we all blogged there would be nobody left to read them. If blogging isn’t your passion, or even really an interest, then its probably not worth pursuing. But who am I to tell you what to do? If you seriously think you could be the next Bloggess, then buy yourself a domain name and get writing!
