In my opinion, Yes!
Anyone can start a blog.
If you've read any of my other articles or know me personally, you can probably predict what I'm about to say: "Anyone can do anything - you just have to believe you can."
So to answer the question, "Can anyone start a blog?" is simple.
Whether you are rich or poor, you can start a blog.
Young? Old? - you can start a blog.
If you know how to write and read, you can start a blog. Well, actually, you do not even know how to write because you can hire someone to do the writing for you at places such as Fiverr.
Whether you want to start a blog as a hobby or a profession, it is rewarding to have a blog. The mere fact that blogs, all blogs, help others - in one way or another. Blogs help provide the information that an individual is looking for when they are looking for it.
It depends on who you ask, I guess.
You've probably heard some people claim that it is easy but I (kinda) disagree.
I thought it was super easy when I first started but the more involved I got into the 'having my own blog' world, the more I noticed how many other things I needed to learn.
Starting a blog is not just getting a domain, putting together a site, and writing some articles. It's way more than that.
But do know that anything can be difficult if you let it, even starting a blog.
So when I said that I kinda disagree with those who say starting a blog is easy, I only say that because there is so much more to starting a blog than just creating a few pages on a site.
Like with any business, you have to put in the work.
If you are willing to put in the work, than you might find that it is not very difficult at all.
You have to be willing to invest your time, be dedicated, be consistent, and be patient.
There's a lot your going to have to do, when you start a blog. I'll list a few here so that you can get a good idea as to what type of things you will be doing or have to learn about but keep in mind that this is not an all inclusive list.
Like I said earlier, this is not an all inclusive list. There is much more to consider when starting a blog if you want it to be successful. You just have to put in the work.
So to answer the question on whether starting a blog is difficult ... you be the judge.
You tell me!
Only you can tell whether starting a blog is a good idea for you or not.
I can tell you that it was a great idea for me. I enjoy it, I love writing, reading, learning, creating, and helping others. Blogging allows me to do all that and more.
I'm not saying that if you do not like or enjoy doing those things then it would be a bad idea. I am merely showing you how I found that it was a good idea for me.
So, know yourself!
There are a lot of questions you should answer before starting a blog - about yourself.
You can not (or should not) start a blog one day just because you think it's a good idea and would make you some money.
You will soon discover that it does not work that way and then you would have wasted your time.
And your time is valuable so be sure you invest your time wisely.
