To start a new online business, we always need to go through several stages. Whether it is a blog or another type of web resource, we always do several things in order to have our online enterprise built. Building a business on The Internet is similar to building a house. Usually, a house consists of thousands of bricks. We connect these brick together, and in the result, we get a ready building. The same thing happens in the online industry. Online blogs do not consist of thousands of bricks. Nevertheless, a serious blog might consist of thousands of good articles. Connecting one brick to another is much simpler than writing a single blog post. Usually, it might take a single minute to connect two bricks. A professional post requires at least two hours of hard work. Writing and editing your texts is a very hard job. When you visit a blog, you already see some ready materials. That is why you have no idea how difficult it is to write a single post.
As I have mentioned before, to start your personal blog, you need to go through several stages. Let us return back, and start comparing with a building. When a building is finished, usually, a company gives it a particular name. Something like Trump building, Hilton, and etc. Often, businessmen associate the buildings with their names. In blogging, choosing a name for your blog comes in first. If you are planning to start blogging, firs of all, you should choose an appropriate domain name for your blog. In my next post, I will teach you how to choose the best domain name for your blog. Today, I will insist and try to prove that associating your blog with your real name is your key to successful blogging. I will prove my statement by giving you some real evidence.
As you know, my name is Bahtiyar, and my blog is associated with my real name. I do not regret about the choice I made. If I was back in past, I would do the same thing. Here are some of the reasons why you should associate your blog with your real name.
1) YOU START TREATING YOUR BLOG MORE SERIOUSLY
Since your blog is associated with your real name, your web resource represents your personality. Things we write show people our souls. Whilst speaking with a person is the best way to identify his character, today, you do not need to do it anymore. Serious people already have personal blogs. If a person independently writes his posts, it is very easy to analyze his personality through the things he publishes on his blog. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you already know everything about my values, priorities, intentions, and plans. Thus, our blogs represent our souls.
When your blog is associated with your real name, you start caring about your personal reputation. Your real name associated with your blog does not let you be anonymous anymore. It is like organizing a press conference and speaking to a large public of people. I bet you will never say something silly or dangerous for your reputation during such serious events. The same thing happens when your personal blog is associated with your real name. In this situation, you must do your best. Your blog is your face. If you write and publish rubbish, the world will think that you are rubbish. On the other hand, profound, wise, and detailed posts will deserve you a high professional reputation. When you blog is associated with your real name, you cannot let yourself produce low-quality content. Your online blog is your reputation and representation in the real world.
Associating your personal blog with your real name makes your more productive, effective, and professional. You will definitely do your best if your blog is associated with your name.
2) YOUR BLOG BECOMES MORE RECOGNIZABLE
A blog’s domain name makes the first impression on a visitor. If your domain name is silly, people will treat your blog playfully. What is more, a domain name with personal credentials is more memorizable than other types of domain names. If you are an expert in a particular field, associating your blog’s domain name with your real name would be a great idea. This will make a very positive impact on your online and offline professional activities. Blogs that are associated with someone’s personalities are more recognizable. People love associating a website with a particular person. This makes it easy for them to remember a website and its owner.
If your blog’s name is not set yet, think about associating its domain name with your real name. These types of domain names have several advantages. I have already mentioned some of them. Associating your blog with your name will let you build a personal brand. As a professional, you will become more famous on the Internet and in the real world. In addition, people tend to treat their blogs more seriously when they are associated with their real names. This helps people achieve more effective and productive results in their daily blogging activity.
