45 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting a Blog: How to Start a Blog for Free in 2022

21. Don’t try to please every single person when starting a blog

If you’re starting a blog, you probably want people to actually…read your blog. I think that’s a safe assumption, right?

That pull to be “liked” can cause you to try to make your blog appeal to as many different people as possible. And while that can work, it usually doesn’t. By trying to appeal to everybody, you really just end up appealing to nobody (OK, nobody is a bit hyperbolic…but you get the point).

I’m not talking about choosing a tiny niche, but more creating a specific brand and voice for your blog.

Are swear words part of your personality? Then swear on your blog! Sure, you might drive some people away, but you don’t have to please every single person. Everyone who isn’t driven away will like you even more.

Don’t believe me? Look at Mark Manson:

Can you imagine if Mark tried to be some straight-laced personal help blogger? He never would’ve grown to where he is (which is a New York Times Best Selling Author, if you’re not familiar).

Don’t try to please every single person – just try to make a group of people really happy.
