Over the years, blogging has developed into greater heights than I ever thought were possible. Blogging has opened up so many opportunities for me. It has completely changed my live. I can’t imagine not blogging.
I know a lot of people who have also embraced blogging and their lives changed. People go into blogging for so many different reasons. If you’re considering to go into blogging but you’re not so sure whether you should then here are some reasons that may push you to just go ahead and do it.
Helps you find your voice and share your opinions
Have you ever been bottled up with thoughts that you wanted to let out? Blogging is a great way to articulate your thoughts and voice your views. Blogging acts as an outlet where you can freely express yourself. As you blog more consistently you start to discover your voice and develop the boldness to be open with your own opinions.
You’ll become a better communicator
As I became more consistent in my blogging, I noticed how much my communication skills improved. Blogging gives you a platform to talk with a large audience. As you share your opinions, thoughts, or tips, you start developing your ability to articulate your content in a way that will attract people’s attention.
You can earn money from your blog
There are thousands of bloggers who have been able to successfully monetize their blogs. There are so many opportunities to earn money through your blog. Sponsored posts, ads and selling online courses are just some of the numerous ways to turn your blog into a money-making venture.
Makes you known as an expert
When you blog about a particular niche, you grow to be very knowledgeable in that niche. As more people follow your blog, you become the go-to person in that niche. People start to recognize you as an expert.
You build an brand
Blogging is one of the ways to create brand awareness. It gives you an opportunity to let people know about who you are, what you do and what you believe in. If you’re running a business, a blog will raise more brand awareness for your business.
Stay connected with people
Blogging helped me connect with people from all over the world. I would get emails from people who read my blog and wanted to get to know me. In the same way, blogging can connect you with people who are interested in what you do and what you write about.
You get to help people with their problems
Do you go through blogs to find a solution to your problem or a nifty trick to help you with something? There are many people looking for solutions in blogs. Blogging will give you the opportunity to help people by sharing the tips and tricks that you know.
You begin to develop positive habits
Blogging is not just about writing about topics that interest you. Blogging takes time and in the process you learn how to be disciplined, committed, responsible and devoted to what you set your mind on doing. There will be times when you won’t feel like blogging but if you stick to it, the positive habits you cultivate from blogging will change your life forever.
It allows you to make an impact
Blogging can act as a tool to impact millions of people. It can act a great medium to reach out to people and motivate them in life. You can inspire people with the stories you share and your views to life. You can make people’s lives more meaningful.
Blogging helps you know more about yourself and keep memories
Most people go through life not knowing who they are or what their purpose is. Blogging helps you get your life in perspective. When you blog, you find yourself unleashing what you have kept within you. You start to discover what means the most to you. You find your true self. Blogging also helps you keep memories.
Do you blog? How are you finding it? Are you thinking of setting up a blog? What is stopping you?
Very true.. But I haven’t fully exploited the advantages of blogging as you have explained in these points. I need to think more and find out what all I can do. Thank you
I am sure you will get there. Thanks for reading.
Great post! It’s so easy to loose sight of why you started blogging but these tips definitely make you realise your love for it 🙂
Thanks Holly x
I was continually told I had far too much to say for myself as I was growing up. Turns out that was going to become very useful as a blogger! But, I agree, it’s easy to lose sight of why you started, however I do think that any blog evolves over time and as long as you are still passionate about what you do and you are giving your readers what they want you’re doing a good job.
Yea blogs do evolve over time. Thanks David.
Thank you for this. This is an extremely positive blog. As a new blogger, this was just the positive read I needed to keep going with my own blogging.
Glad you love the post. Keep at it.
Blogging has definitely changed my life in more ways than one and I can not imagine myself not blogging. These are all great reasons to blog and I concur with all of them.
Yea. Thanks for reading.
I have noticed such a difference in myself since I began blogging. I have become more confident, I think I have become a better communicator, and it has helped me find the perfect career path as well! I am on my second blog now, and I still love it just as much as I did when I first began! Great post!
Oh great. Thanks for stopping by.
I hope blogging will change my life as it has yours. I just found your blog today and all your blogging tip posts are so helpful!
Thanks Zoe. Glad you found the posts helpful.
I agree! Not only does blogging make you a better writer but it also allows you to make connections with others x
Yes it does x
I love blogging & couldn’t imagine stopping. I love the memories it records x
Yea me too x
It is great for all these reasons but it is also important to remember that it is a competitive market these days and your blog can get lost in a sea of similar ones and it can take time to start making a living
I love blogging too Stella. I can not imagine not blogging now. I love adding memories to my blog to, hopefully creating my thought that my children might look back on and read.
Yes me too Claire.
all of these are very true. The reason I started a blog was to break out of my introvertness and to gather my thoughts and opinions in one place, since I felt like I couldn’t express myself in a way that made sense. Now, my blog has turned into a business and while my main goal is still finding my own voice, I also want to be a help and inspiration to others who were or are like me, quite, shy, and timid when meeting and talking to other people.
Oh good Brianna. Happy to hear your blog has turned into a business.
So very true Stella! Blogging has opened so many doors for me and my family. I just couldn’t imagine a life without it now x
Yea same here Jayne x
I love blogging and I am so glad I started. I love that it helps me record days out and special memories in my families life x
Yea same here x
I have met so many new and lovely people since blogging, i did it for an outlet, and it has been such a good thing for me and my daughter.
This is all so true. Blogging has been one of the best things I have ever done!!
Yea same here.
I started blogging so I could have a positive creative outlet when feeling like I’d lost my identity during my first maternity leave. Now three years on one rebranded and am actually making some money! It’s such a wonderful thing to do and really improves my mood and day to day.
Yea it is amazing outlet.
Excellent reasons to blog! I I started blogging to have a creative outlet, but it’s grown to so much more than that! I make money, I’ve met new people, and I get to write every day!
Oh good. I would be lost without my blog.
Great list. For me, it has given me more confidence and makes me do things outside of my comfort zone
Glad you like the list. Good you do things outside your comfort zone now.
I’ve been blogging for about 18 months now and really agree with all your points here, especially the last one. It’s been such a great way to record experience and have a sort of journal I can look back on. As you say it’s not talked about as much I don’t think but it is a way of therapy I guess to share your thoughts and feelings and realise there’s others out there feeling the same. Great post, thanks for sharing!
Thank you for reading.
Nice and perfect looking outfit..
I enjoyed this post. Never knew i could gain that much from blogging.
Glad you like the post. Blogging can open a lot of doors.
