I am so happy to return to blogging after such a long time. I started my MBA so was fully occupied and was just not able to manage my time as it’s a full-time course. But, seriously I missed writing so much. I missed cooking. I missed working on my blog. It is clearly not just a hobby but also a source of recreation for me. I do feel accomplished, happy when I write. And it’s just not the writing part, but also the digital marketing, SEO stuff I do it. All of these are so challenging. I really do think that people who love doing creative kinds of stuff or people who love writing and sharing things and knowledge with others or people who want to earn out of their hobbies start blogging. These are the very few reasons to start. In fact, there are a lot of reasons which I have and I will share them to motivate you to start blogging.
1. Explore your creativity and knowledge
Blogging is about sharing what you see, what you hear, what you do, what you learn with the world. It’s about learning new things ongoing with the process, exploring your creativity and then telling people about it.
2. Share your skills and knowledge with others
Well If you have it showcase it. And you know that knowledge gets increased the more you share. So, get an audience for yourself and let people know what you have to offer to this world.
3. Meet new people
With blogging, you will meet many new people and new connections with your older contacts as well. Soon, your followers will become your friends and family. You will interact with your audience and make new relationships.
4. You love writing and blogging make you a pro in that
You will definitely improve your writing skills over the time. Because it comes with constant practice and blogging just helps you to do that. The more the better.
5. You love helping other people
If you want your voice to reach to a lot of people, this is one of the best ways. Any issue or matter you want to talk about or any trick or tips you want people to know, use blogging. People will read it.
6. A blogger has got a voice
Every one of us has something to say, even if we don’t think of ourselves as writers or speakers. A blog gives you a platform, to say what’s on your mind and heart. And then you find other people who connect with what you believe.
7. It makes you think better
You will grow the ability to think clearly and generate ideas. You’ll learn to reflect deeply on your life, your relationships. You will start to engage with others on a more intellectual level.
8. It can help you earn and make a career out of it
This reason is motivating enough. Isn’t it? You can make blogging your parttime or fulltime earning option. And if you are good at it, you have the ability to put enough hard work, determination, time, patience after it then you can earn a lot from it. If you write well then eventually you will get a lot of freelancing blogging opportunities as well. But anything needs time and perseverance. So remember that 🙂
9. It challenges your potential
It helps you out to try more and push yourself. Blogging isn’t easy. There are a lot of challenges along the way to be an experienced and skilled blogger from a newbie who just starts writing.
10. It gives you a sense of accomplishment
You are blogging. You are doing something. You are working on something fruitful which can open doors of tremendous opportunities to you. The possibilities are limitless. I am sure that it will give you a sense of accomplishment.
11. It can make you famous and well-known
Blogging will introduce yourself to the world. If you will work hard enough with pure determination and patience, it will eventually make you an expert well-known person in your particular niche. And who doesn’t love recognition?
12. You get an audience for your blog
When you are blogging you are creating value for yourself and others. With time your expertise will increase and so your readers. Your audience will grow and be diversified with time. And many of them will be your loyal audience who will come back to your blog, again and again, to see and read your creations.
13. You will be an inspiration to others
It will change your life as well as the life of your readers. You will be able to impact their lives on so many levels. Your words, your work, your passion will inspire them too. And that’s great. Right?
14. Blogging will help you to validate your expertise
Suppose that you are a digital marketing specialist who works on digital marketing. Now if you will write about digital marketing, it will tell the world that you really know about it. It will showcase and validate your expertise which you will be able to utilize when you will have a chance to grow in your professional career.
15. It will help you to make a circle of people having the same interest
As I am a food blogger, I want to have a circle of foodie people and bloggers who write about food and simple food and restaurant enthusiasts. Blogging will help me to have that circle in so many different ways and we will be able to help each other on our loving food journey.
16. Blogging makes you a better and a disciplined person
You need to be really consistent and persistent at the same time to get success in blogging. You need to be regular with quality writing and content updating and with the other works those come after writing. You will have to show yourself up at regular intervals to keep your audience engaged and to gather new ones.
17. It helps you to grow and acquire new skills
When I started blogging, I didn’t know anything. As needs I started reading and learning about domain names, hosting, WordPress, HTML, codings, social media channels, link building, SEO, blog design, digital marketing etc. If you are truly serious about blogging you start learning and eventually acquired a lot of skills for yourself which help you professionally achieve a great success.
18. It will help you stand out from the others
Everyone is using the internet these days. But how many of them are creating something of their own rather than just being a viewer of others’ contents? So it’s upon you to choose what you wanna be. Ask yourself: Do you wanna do something different and stand out from the others?
19. It will make you more confident
If you are an introvert or often get scared to voice your opinion, start blogging. It will definitely make you confident and be daring with time. You will be able to share things and talk about various subjects with people. Nonetheless, you will be able to criticize others, take criticism too if needed, learn to take risks and you may make mistakes in the process but you will be able to gracefully accept those to grow in future.
20. It can boost your already existing offline business
As people are getting so habituated with laptops, smartphones, internet if you will not utilize this opportunity you will lose the market and your competitors will win eventually. Getting online is easy, cheap, comes with great ROI and boost your overall offline business in a fast and sustainable way.
21. It can create scopes for starting new ventures in future
Yes definitely. Suppose as a food blogger one day I will become too successful. People will start loving my recipes, cooking style, and presentations. Then I may get opportunity and inspiration to write my cookbooks or open a cafe of my own in future 😉
