Here are three very common blogging myths that I hear all the time that are just not true.
Myth #1 – You Have To Be a Good Writer to Blog
One of the most common excuses I hear from people about starting a Blog is that they say that they’re not good at writing.
Yet, the very same people text 5,000 words of text to all their friends throughout the day, and post dozens of facebook updates.
You don’t have to be a great writer to be a great blogger. Blogging is about making a connection with your audience and communicating with them in a comfortable, conversational style.
It is NOT about winning an English literary prize for best writer.
Also, nobody even said you have to write. If you prefer you could make videos, and then outsource the process of transcribing your videos into blog posts.
Or just record videos, upload them to YouTube, and then write a short blog post of just a few sentences introducing the video and then embed the video in your post.
Myth #2 – To Start a Blog I Need to Pick One Niche Topic and Know Exactly What I’m Going to Blog About
This is another common myth.
Most people think that they need to pick just ONE ultra-targeted niche topic for their Blog and then do nothing but write content related to that topic.
You don’t have to do that.
You can Blog about various different subjects that interest you, and you don’t have to be an expert in any field to Blog about it.
With proper training you can train your mind to start generating Blog post content ideas as you’re living your life.
You can turn almost anything that you experience throughout the day into an interesting Blog post piece.

Myth #3 – Starting a Blog is Complicated
Another common thing I hear people say about Blogging is that starting a Blog is complicated and requires technical knowledge.
Until fairly recently, I would somewhat agree with this statement because Blogging used to be complicated.
As a techie / former computer programmer, I found the technology required to setup a Blog fairly easy to understand, but not everyone has a programming / techie background like I do, so it used to be pretty difficult to get starting with Blogging without being a techie or hiring one to help you out.
Luckily today with the Kalatu Brand Station platform, all of that is virtually eliminated.
Kalatu allows anyone to setup a Blog in just a few simple steps without any prior technical knowledge.
Also, the other benefit of using the Kalatu platform is that it is based on the WordPress platform, but unlike using WordPress on your own hosted platform, Kalatu offers you training and support for using their software.
