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.
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
