Top 7 Reasons Why You Need to Start a Blog

Are you thinking to take that first step towards starting your own blog but still hesitant?

In this article, I will share some reasons to start blogging now.

7 reasons to start a blog

You may have seen a lot of people posting and sharing about their life journeys, personal experiences or spreading knowledge and educating about various topics online. People choose various mediums to share their thoughts, views or ideas such as videos, podcasts, blogs or images.

I picked blogging.

Over the years I have had various hobbies like playing video games, creating videos and photography to name a few.

But never in a thousand years, I thought blogging will be a part of this list.

When I started blogging it just brought tons of satisfaction. It changed my thought process completely. I could see the side of things which I never imagined to see before.

It made my life change for the better.

Blogging started as a part-time hobby has now become an inseparable part of my life.

Often I have been reached out and people have asked me “Do you have to be a writer to become a blogger”.

The answer is simple, No. Trust me when I say this.

Once you start writing about something or document a personal journal. You will acquire the necessary skills.

Think about a young kid who is learning to walk and one day takes the first step and as time goes by learns how to walk. And in this process of learning to walk the young kid might have tumbled a few times. But he wins over his failure.

And I m sure you can relate to this.

But the end result is he eventually overcomes the obstacles.

Similarly, when you will start writing you will face many hurdles in your path but with time and having patience you’ll conquer the odds.

With that said, I have a question in mind when a huge number of people blog on a daily basis, then

The 7 Benefits of Blogging

1. Improved Writing and Thinking skills

Blogging is your self-expression. Getting your point across to the readers and connecting with them is the goal. I consider blogging as an art form. You have to paint a beautiful picture using words.

And I can understand this is not an easy task. But once you start writing, it will improve your skills gradually over time.

In order to write on a certain subject matter for thousands of people online, you will have to dive deep into the ocean of knowledge.

With the help of this, you will gain a better understanding of different philosophies or point of views. This will make you a better thinker and communicator.

Believe me when I say this

Blogging is a journey and self-improvement is the result Click To Tweet

You will be living a healthy lifestyle which will boost the mental and physical health making you a better thinker and a writer.

2. Creating a Platform for voicing your thoughts

One of the many benefits of having a blog is the freedom to write on any subject matter.

Be it technology, movies, art, politics, sports, health, fitness or any other subject, you can express your opinions through your blog.

With the help of blogging, you can share the ideas and thoughts with a wider audience and you will be definitely heard.

3. Meeting new people and building a community

When you start your own blog, you’ll slowly and steadily build readership and it will create a community around it.

People will comment on your blog, social media or some may even email you. You will also notice visitors interacting with other visitors. This creates a big community around your blog.

With regular collaborations, interactions and engagements, you will notice you have met some people and built strong and long-term relationships with them.

Also, you may get a chance to meet some successful people. In the future, you may even get the opportunity to work with them. This is one of the most benefiting and life-changing experience.

Blogging as a community is very supportive. With that said, you will be able to learn tons of new things and make everlasting friendships.

4. Financial Independence

Financial independence may seem lucrative but it is challenging. I started blogging as a passion. Do not mix satisfaction of blogging with financial independence.

But you can make a passive income.

Once you start getting enough traffic to your blog, make it a source of passive income.

And keep in mind do not let the shiny syndrome distract you from your goal.

5. Amazing platform to Educate and Inspire

Blogging offers a great platform to spread knowledge and inspire others. You can find information related to anything and everything you need.

Also, these are free to resources accessible to anyone and everyone.

Be it you are sharing your knowledge, ideas or thoughts you are in some way inspiring or educating someone. By sharing the knowledge you are helping somebody who needs a solution to a problem.

And now that is making a difference in someone’s life.

It is a great feeling to see positive comments on blogs, social media or email.

Keep in mind your voice can make a difference and it can positively impact someone’s life.
