Ah...a new year is upon us, and with it, resolutions like polishing up your website or finally starting that blog.
Whatever you do, don’t start that blog.
Don’t get me wrong, there are many wonderful reasons to start a blog. There’s the promise of making money (just Google the phrase “how to make money blogging” to see what I’m talking about), but there’s also self-expression, organizing your ideas, building a “community,” and, obviously, content marketing.
But the world has changed. What was once the best way to start a website around a unique idea, interest, or take on the world in a few minutes for free just can’t compete with our new realities. Starting a blog is like bringing a knife to a gunfight––you simply can’t compete in 2018.
Now, I may seem like a blog hater at this point, but I’m not. Rather, I’m someone who has dedicated the past decade to creating powerful products for entrepreneurs and online businesses to succeed—controlling their own destiny along the way.
