I have answered a few Quora questions recently about starting a blog.
People wanted to know if it’s too late to begin blogging in 2019 or 2020.
I alerted these folks; now is the time so it is never too late to start blogging. It is never too late to begin anything, especially this in-demand, helpful medium for connecting with and serving people.
74 year olds have emailed me as new bloggers. 14 year olds have emailed me as new bloggers. I began blogging in my early 30’s after working a few jobs I did not like. Blogging has been fun, freeing and sometimes challenging for me. What a delicious mix.
Why It’s Not too Late to Start Blogging
Until you take your last breath on planet earth, it is not too late to begin any endeavor because any meaningful effort benefits yourself and humanity. Think about that for one moment. Any effort you put toward any end benefits all of us because you will be happier and more fulfilled by learning, expressing yourself and serving other people through any medium.
I recall a 70 year old who commented on one of my guest posts. He purchased 3 of my eBooks and noted how he’d been following my advice from the post as a new blogger. Was 70 years old too late for him to begin blogging? Nope. No time like the present. The key is to love the process and not outcomes. Bloggers fear it’s too late because they fear they will not get money and traffic because they did not dive into blogging 5 or 10 years ago. The 70 year old saw infinite possibility and had a genuine joy for blogging. No grass grows green under his feet.
Is Blogging Dead?
Morons like to spread the idiotic advice that blogging has died, at least every few months. Putzes from well-read publications write and publish such posts for a quick, easy, click bait worthy boost. Do you want to know when blogging will likely die? When people become officially dead, and extinct, will likely be the time blogging dies. Until then, blogging will probably be the medium through which you:
- have fun
- help people
- fulfill yourself
- build a cyber resume
- build an online business
Hundreds of years ago, people kept diaries to record their thoughts in private and for a long, long time, people wrote books to inspire humanity. Thousands of years ago, people wrote on cave walls as one of the first forms of prehistoric blogging.
The current day medium of blogging will certainly last for a while because it is such an easy, convenient, trusted medium for publishing:
- eye-popping images
in addition to being the ultimate digital store front. Selling online courses, teleseminars, eBooks, paperbacks, audio books and various services through blogging is simple and becomes easy the more generously you help people.
Does this medium sound like it’s going anywhere soon? Nope.
It’s definitely not too late to begin blogging but you need to start blogging now. Nobody waits around for your blogging debut because people greedily gobble up my 10 posts daily between guest posting and publishing content to my blog. The established pros are only becoming more successful so it’s time for you to carve out your own blogging niche.
NOW is the time to begin blogging, to dive in, to cut your learning curve, to begin learning how to blog properly and to lay the foundation for a successful blogging career.
