Is there anything unique about writing your first blog entry as a musician? In many ways no.
When you’re starting you need a good model to follow.
Let me suggest this blog post as a helpful starting place.
Find Your Passion
Identifying passion can sound a little mysterious, but it’s not really that difficult. Just ask yourself a few questions.
If money was not an issue, how would you spend your days?
What activity keeps you awake past your normal bedtime without you becoming tired or even noticing?
What are people always telling you you’re good at? Maybe they’re suggesting you start something along that topic.
Solve A Problem
Passion identified? Great! Now, how in the world does it relate to a problem to be solved?
Do you hear people complaining about and imagining “if only”? Is it a problem you can solve?
Take music – what is something people have a problem with it comes to music? What do they have a hard time understanding?
Music theory? Reading music? Beginning guitar lessons?
Or maybe it’s their favorite band.
Here’s one way I’ve found to solve a problem. For memorizing Bible verses I write songs using verses for lyrics.
Do Keyword Research
Keywords are the topics covered in your blog post. SEO uses keywords to help people searching for you content to find your article.
The reason to do research before you write your first blog post is to get an idea of what people are interested in.
Knowing this helps you write content that people are looking for. It also improves the amount of traffic you are getting to your website.
Some ideas to consider would include the making of your album, the history of your band, or respond to an opinion article.
These topics form the keywords of your blog posts. Just write about one at a time.
There you have it – enough to write your first blog entry as a musician. Write from your passion. Solve a problem. Do keyword research.
