Throughout the pandemic, home gardening has been a huge part of the lifestyle changes that we’ve all experienced together—even while remaining separate from many of those we love. Gardening is on the rise in the present moment of lockdowns and vaccine rollouts, and the benefits that this brings are multi-faceted and widely rewarding. For many, a newfound passion for gardening has translated into a desire to share these experiences with the world. Launching a gardening blog is the perfect way to share your experiences while providing the larger community of like-minded people with an outlet to learn a thing or two from your example and create a vibrant digital community of avid, novice gardeners just like you.
Starting a blog is simple and fun, and with these great tips, you can get started on your new gardening content in no time.
One of the key features of a great blog, in any arena, is the utility of the information provided. A great gardening blog is one that focuses on how to cultivate outdoor and indoor plants with a variety of types, settings, and needs, such as hanging planters, houseplants, low light, air plants, ivy, indirect light needs, and small planters or pots. These are often the conditions that renters and those in cities are working with, and you may have struggled through these pitfalls and setbacks in your own gardening journey. Hanging plants are a particularly interesting addition to any home, but they can be tricky to grow for inexperienced gardeners. With tailored advice that focuses on the things that many people in your situation might benefit the most from, you can be sure that you’ll generate the traffic and interest that you are looking for with your content.
By providing genuine assistance to other novice gardeners that may be a few months—or even years—behind you in the journey to growing vegetables for use in cooking, beautifying the interior of the home with a spider plant or succulent garden, and more, you can really make an impact. People who are searching for blog articles are those who want an interactive experience with others who share the same passions and interests as them. This is a fantastic way to grow more than just a following.
One thing that a blog site can provide is a steady stream of dividend income. Advertising and link building can help you connect with other home gardeners, but it can also supplement your income with pay-per-click (PPC) advertising revenue and much more. Learning how to monetize Facebook page, website content, and even video content that you are producing can generate significant income for you and your family. These additional dollars can go a long way to expanding your hobby as well. Most people who start a blog do it because they want to share their passions and interests with the wider world; generating income through your content can help you focus an even greater share of your attention on the things that you love doing.
Indeed, there are over 600 million blogs on the internet, and they deal with every topic you could imagine. With this much content out there, carving out a niche might seem daunting, but the truth is that building a loyal following of people who want to come back time and again to read what you have to say is as simple as showing up for your audience.
Providing people with the kinds of advice that you’d want to learn—and in the gardening niche that you’ve developed as a passion—is the fastest way to generate interest, and by extension income from your hobby.
With these tips, getting your blog off the ground is simple.
