Why would you start a blog in 2021?
The past 12 months have shown us how important human connection is. Particularly when people have become physically isolated, blogging has brought people together, providing a space for ideas, conversations and community.
In the new Covid-19 world, amidst crisis and fast changes in society, blogging is an established platform which has adapted and helped people in their time of need providing hope and creative solutions to emerging problems.
I am very proud of how bloggers have stepped up to help their local and online communities. I spoke more about this as the virus was hitting in March, in my podcast episode: COVID19 – How to Approach Blogging Through This Crisis.
And amidst the chaos, upheaval and overwhelm of the previous, I am immensely proud of the individuals who have stepped up and decided that they too want to contribute to making the world a better place by creating new blogs. Now, more than even we need to encourage and nurture people who are willing to put themselves out there and do something positive to address the needs of their readers – both current and future.
These new bloggers have made their first steps in the journey toward a profitable blog:
Not yet Launched?
We’d also like to recognise those pre-bloggers who are currently working through the course and taking steps to launch their blogs. We’ll be bringing you updates on them in the coming weeks. So if you’re still working to launch your blog, make sure you update your student profile in our members section (you need to be logged in) with all your blog details, when you’re ready.
New bloggers, if you’ve got something out of doing the course, we’d love you to leave us a testimonial (you need to be logged in) recommending us to other new bloggers.
As a new blogger, your horizons are broad and choice of direction is completely up to you. At ProBlogger we’ve developed some key resources to help you choose the right path for you and one that leads to a successful and profitable blog.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021!
Finally and most importantly I would like to introduce and congratulate the class of 2021 who are launching their blogs today on the 4th Annual International Start a Blog Day, 7 February 2021. These new bloggers will inform, entertain, connect and help people. They will enrich and even change their readers lives.
Please support these new bloggers by visiting their blogs, reading their posts, leaving them an encouraging comment and following their progress via email and/or social media. They’ve taken action by completing ProBlogger’s Ultimate Guide to Starting a Blog course and following through on a commitment they’ve made to themselves and their future readership.

Note: If you don’t see your new blog in the list (and it is launched and you have completed your student profile in our members section) it may be because you missed the cutoff please email [email protected] so we can include it in updates to the list in the coming days and in next week’s newsletter.
