If The Pandemic Has Forced You To Start A Blog, Here’s What To Do Next

how to start a blog earn money blogging side hustle

The pandemic has forced a lot of people to become entrepreneurs. It is not that those people didn’t have a business idea in the back of their mind. It is just that life has been ticking along just fine until the last couple of years for a lot of people. No one wants to make a big change when things are going well enough. We have an aversion to rocking the boat. Or to put it another way, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. 

But of course, it is broken. And no good fix is in the works. We didn’t cause the problem. But we have to become the solution. The problem is that most of those businesses you were noodling cost a lot of money to get started. Right now, no one has a lot of money. And banks are not in the mood to lend it. 

Thank goodness for blogging. Maybe you weren’t the best student in school. But you always did well in grammar. You developed an appreciation for literature. And you had a knack for creative writing. Blogging can take advantage of all that. But you need a little more than a way with words and a gift for gab. If you want to beat the pandemic by blogging, here’s what you need: 

A Good Desk 

When you are purchasing a desk chair, it is useful to know the average desk height. It is even more useful not to have to worry about it. You are not the average person going into the average career under average circumstances. Since you will be writing several hours a day, you are going to want to be able to get out of that chair several times a day, preferably, without having to take time away from work. 

A sit/stand desk can do all that with the press of a button. One moment, you are sitting. Realizing how unhealthy sitting for long periods of time can be, you press the button to raise the desk. The next moment, you’re standing. But at no moment did you have to break the flow of your work to do it. The powered desks can usually be programmed to accommodate different heights in the event more than one person uses the desk. It also provides flexibility if you decide to get a chair that sits a little higher or a little lower, your desk will be able to accommodate you. If you are looking to go into the word-making business, you are going to need a desk that works with you. 

Play To Your Strengths 

If you are an introvert, business-minded kind of person, then become an introverted business blogger. Don’t think of your aversion to social situations as a weakness. Embrace it as a strength. Love who you are and write what you know. If you know all the ins and outs about skateboarding, you can build a totally rad blog with a highly engaged niche following. 

If you like to keep things light and funny, use your wit to make serious things more digestible. If you are a pop culture expert, sprinkle your writings with pop culture references. There is almost no topic that doesn’t have a natural audience. You don’t have to worry about a topic being oversaturated. With over 7 billion people on the planet, you can find a couple hundred who really like your style. Develop an audience and advertisers will follow. Just be yourself and play to your strengths. 

Get A Laptop 

If you only have a desktop computer, get a laptop. The best laptops of 2021 include Macs and PC’s for a broad spectrum of budgets. As a blog writer, you don’t need a high-end machine. You just need something that you can take with you every time you leave the house. The worst thing you can do as a blogging writer is to be without your tools when inspiration strikes. 


It is possible to supplement your income with blogging. But you have to have the right mindset and tools to make it happen as a blogger. Get the kind of desk that keeps you healthy while you work on your blog. Use your natural abilities and strengths and don’t try to be someone you aren’t. Authenticity is key online. And get a mobile device you can use for writing on the go because inspiration waits for no one.
