As we talked about in a previous post about reasons to start blogging now, a blog is an invaluable resource for the creative entrepreneur.

It’s your platform, your virtual home, the place where you welcome your audience, followers, clients, and offer them a little more of you.

As a creative, you might have come up with “creative” excuses not start a blog.

Let’s play true or false:

1. I don’t have the know-how

False: Creative entrepreneurs are people with mastery over ideas. You might be skilled at writing, painting, composing, but your true talent is putting things together in a unique package. Maybe you outsource, you crowd-source, you collaborate. You can benefit from all of these to build that web and curate that blog.

2. I don’t have the time

False: Creative entrepreneurs have by default more control over their time. If time is an issue, time-management skills are in need. One solution is to delegate and automate. The time factor flies out a window once we restructure and realize, as per excuse #1, we don’t have to do it all.

3. I don’t have the budget

True: Creative entrepreneurs are mostly bootstrapping their business ventures. As part of a start-up or as any solo-preneur. Money is limited, but thankfully not the resources available. A tiny bit of digging will uncover ways to get a web and blog started with little or no money upfront, just your creative juices, passion and will to give it a shot.

As you have seen in this very simplified 3 step break down, the main factor is the one that you have the most control over; time. Very little money and zero expertise is the way we began years ago, learning as we went, re-inventing more than a few times along the way.

Stay tuned for an upcoming post on our blogging journey and basic tools.
