Writing brings out a sense of liberation, expression, and passion. The best way to self-express is by writing blogs. Many seniors might be concerned with the technology aspect that goes into writing blogs. However, it has never been easier to master the technology. It’s very simple and older adults are still the fastest growing demographic online and in social media.
The first thing to remember is to start out small and stay focused on your passions. Write something that you care about and try to get as specific as possible. Broad and non-focused blog topics are harder to grow. So stick to something you care about such as, “cars” and “baking”, well then narrow that down to what type of cars and what sort of desserts? Even if you write every day, it could take up to six months or more to grow a significant audience. Your goal should be to build a small, passionate following since it’s better to have a small audience who actually is engaged with your content than thousands who just skim and leave your blog.
To start a blog you can use one of the automated services like wordpress.com for free or create your own website from scratch. Regardless of what you pick, get started on your blog right away. Don’t wait for the right time and don’t worry about getting it right the first time. Content focus can change over time but it’s necessary to get used to sharing your thoughts with the world. Keep practicing it and keep writing every day. It can be about what’s going on in your life and how you are feeling about a certain subject. Many seniors like to blog about their daily life and their feelings and thoughts, while others like to focus on certain topics like senior care, aging support, politics, cooking, aging in place etc. You don’t always have to post what you write about as long as you go with a passionate topic and stick with it.
