If you are an advocate of a worth cause and you want to spread the word about it to gain more support, blogging is an effective way to do it. Being personal platforms, a blog allows anybody to share his views and opinions on any topic he or she is passionate about.
Blogging for a cause helps in raising awareness on an issue or a non-profit organization dedicated to contributing to human development and environmental preservation. It’s also a way to hone your writing skills and let your voice be known on a global level.
Decide on a Topic
To get started, it’s important that you plan first about the blog that you’re going to create. Decide on whether you want to focus on a particular issue or you want to cover various issues close to your heart.
Up to this day, the issue of comfort women is still alive in the Asian region and even in the U.S. Various groups strongly supporting the campaign of surviving victims of the Japanese Imperial Army during the Second World War continue to fight for the rights of these women to be recognized and justly compensated.
If you prefer to have a blog covering different topics on women, you can dedicate your blog to a specific cause for one day, for an entire week or month. This is a good idea and more special when you publish your posts during a special occasion such as a commemoration of an event related to that issue.
Help Raise Funds
On the other hand, if you wish to raise funds for a cause, you may get sponsors for your blog posts. There are companies who also support worthy causes and do not mind donating cash.
You can get a sole sponsor for your blog posts for a particular timeframe. For this purpose, you can use a company’s banner or logo on your blog and then tag the sponsor in your posts.
Share on Social Media
Complement your blogging for a cause with social media sharing. Create a separate Facebook page or Twitter account for your blog and share your posts there. Then make sure to provide links back to your blog or blog posts so your followers can find out more about what you do.
Additionally, you can find out who among your followers have their own blogs or websites. From there, you can then ask them to help promote your cause. It’s a give and take when it comes to blogging on something valuable to society.
These days, nonprofits are using blogs and bloggers to gain support for their cause. If you’re still unsure about doing a blog for a cause on your own, you can always partner with an organization or other bloggers who share your passion on a particular campaign. Take note that there are bloggers willing to help raise money for various causes.
