Are you a medical professional that’s interested
in blogging? Well, here’s a little introduction for you to get you starrted.
To my subscribers, I need to apologize for not being able to post for the past 2 months,
I have been focusing on a lot of very important stuffs.
One of which is my blog which is publichealthresources.blogspot.com PHR is actually a monetization experiment
wherein I tried to make money out of things or information that I really really know as
a public health officer. If you might remember from my previous videos,
I did mention another blog called ZeroMD.wordpress.com I started the blog ZeroMD way back 2009 and
Iwas able to achieve moderate success in terms of viewership.
However, I wasn’t able to make a single cent out of it.
So with the help of google Adsense, I decided to make a new blog and forcus on a specific
medical niche, which is public health information and thus PHR was born.
And it is here that I have been focusing my attention on for the past 2 months.
A blog is a website that has more of a personal touch.
The posts are made by you and you write your views about a certain topic or you want to
teach other people things that you really really know and that they are really interested
in doing. It doesn’t matter what you write on your blog.
Somebody, somewhere on this planet will read what you wrote on that post.
And the best part is, they will interact with it.
They will either like it, not like it, or be undecided.
Now, if you’re a doctor like me and you want to start blogging. Well, I suggest go right
ahead. Just remember 3 things:
1. It takes time to get viewership. Don’t worry about SEO.
Or a way to trick Google to promote your new blog instantly.
You just need to write great content day after day and eventually that great content will
be the drive to invite other people to read your blog.
Number 2 is to make sure you share your posts. Nowadays, there’s a big probability that you
are in a social network like Facebook, Google+, or Twitter.
Your followers there are your base of followers. It is through them that your posts will be
spread through word of mouth. And it is through them that your first success
as a blogger can be found. Number 3 is Do not write bad stuff about a
certain person or a certain brand out of anger. The repercussions of a rant can be devastating
for you and your blog. You have to remember that the rules in print
media, in publishing, and also in the web are also the same.
You have to respect the boundaries. You have to respect the responsibility
You can write about anything, about anyone. However, you need to take a certain precaution
before you etch those words in stone in what you call as a blog.
Because once you write it, you can have haters. And haters, once they are planted in your
portfolio, they just keep on growing because of things you wish you hadn’t said in your
blog. However, a lot of viral blogs out there actually
started out doing this: writing out bad stuff and they even keep their names anonymous so
they can play safe. However, you have to remember that this is
a form of cyber-bullying and it has to stop. If you want more great adive about beginner
