    This is just a quick question for those who plan to start a blog but haven't been able to start yet
    SEMrush
    1) What is stopping you? What is delaying you?
    2) Which tasks do you find difficult about starting a blog?

    By the way …

    If you've already launched your blog, would you share your blog start-up experience (Just to help us gain some insights).

    3) Personally, what did you find difficult or time-consuming when you were launching your blog?
    4) How long did it take you to start making some income?

    I've worked with friends and family who have wanted to start a blog - a proper blog, not MFA. The only one who did so successfully was a retired journalist.

    Here's my take on it:
    1. the steps to getting a "minimal viable product" are overwhelming. Finding images that are royalty free, or getting them taken is harder work than you'd imagine. Getting the right starting content is hard. Even picking a theme is hard when the demos show a swathe of options and you have to envisage how it will look with your content in it.

    The hardest part is the steep learning curve, from getting traffic to writing the best SEO compliant articles. You might be lost at first but you’ll get the hang of it after awhile.

    I started writing about two years ago. Starting, it was tough to find my voice. I look back on early posts and cringe a bit. Over time, I think we find the right tone and style, and it all falls into place.
