If you are thinking about writing a blog then it can be difficult to know where to start. You could think that it is impossible to find something new to deliver to the world. But you’d be wrong. I’ll show you via a series of blog examples how you can write a successful blog. If you are unsure about anything then please drop me a line. I’m here to help. Let’s take a look at the blog examples that could fire your imagination.
This site is one of the blog examples I regularly quote. Mystery Shopping Tips is a site that has gone completely niche. The competition out there is all talking about making and saving money in general. Mystery Shopping Tips has taken one element of this and delivers content that is immediately actionable.

This is one of the blog examples that will carry you a long way –

Thinking about these will help you develop a blog that works for you. Ignoring these could end up with a blog that takes up a lot of time but delivers very little.
