Podcast: Connie Leon shares how to make a successful blog
When Connie Leon started her blog she just felt a need to connect with other people. She didn’t know that her hobby could potentially be very lucrative.
“I’m pretty sure there are people that just try to do (blogging) for the money, but I’m also pretty sure that if you’re not doing it for the right reasons it’ll fall apart,” said Leon.
With blogging, vlogging or any social media channel content creators have to be consistent in producing content to build a sizable following. According to Leon, If you don’t love what you do, you won’t be as consistent.
“You have to love what you do in order to grow it, and then create revenue from it,” said Leon.
Leon hasn’t had a lot of negativity from her blog. She attributes this to the versatility in her parental style and personal life. Leon wants to attract people to her website that want to be there. They don’t necessarily have to agree with her.
For younger bloggers, Leon advises to have a clear focus and figure out what your purpose is first. Don’t worry about how many views, readers or listeners you have at first. Thanks to the internet, you will always have an audience.
