10 Reasons Why You Should Blog | 6 comments:



1.) Writing is Good for You - It's no secret that having a creative outlet such as writing can be therapeutic. I can't tell you how good it feels to come home after a bad day and just sit and write for the blog. I've done some of my best writing on bad days!

2.) Meeting Amazing People - With so many bloggers out there and events like bloggers conferences, there's just so many new people that you can meet with the same interests as yours! This was actually one of the reasons why I started blogging, I felt that no one in my hometown was into fashion so I wanted to connect with others that understood my passion for it!

3.) Free Stuff -It really depends on what type of blog you have but if you work hard enough, you could get free stuff like gift cards. Although this shouldn't be the only reason that you blog, I'll admit it is a nice perk!

4.) Documenting Your Life - It's great to look back on old posts and see the way you've changed as a person whether it's through your writing, photos, or even the thoughts that you've had back then.

5.) You'll Learn About Business - I think there's some sort of irony in the fact that I've learned more about business through blogging than I have in my business classes. Real life experience is just so much better than sitting in a classroom. I've learned how to network, market products, and develop my "brand" through blogging.

6.) You'll Learn to Not Quit -  I can't tell you how important perseverance is and how it relates to all aspects of your life. There's so many times where I've wanted to quit blogging because I thought it was "pointless" yet I still kept going. All because of blogging, I began to develop an attitude where no matters how hard things get, quitting is no longer an option.

7.) Having an Impact on Others - Your opinion matters and sharing that opinion with others from all over the world, can make a huge difference. You could just be an inspiration for someone and you don't even know it.

8.) Opportunities - There's so many opportunities out there that I never thought was possible until I started blogging. There are some people out there that have full-time jobs because of blogging! The possibilities are endless...

9.) Gaining Confidence - I really wouldn't describe myself as a confident person, but doing what I love seemed to have changed that. Sharing my opinion on the internet, writing posts endlessly, and promoting my work seems to bring out confidence that I didn't even know I had.

10.) You Will Improve As a Person - Blogging is hard and to anyone who says it isn't, well they just haven't blogged before. If you're a serious blogger, then you probably already know about the many challenges that it comes with. You might have a tough time promoting your blog or you might work really hard on a post and your readers didn't like it. Whatever challenge you're facing, keep going because in the end you'll improve dramatically. If it was easy, anyone could do it.



Hope you enjoyed this post!

  2. I agree with most of them too! Writing's actually kept me sane after finding out that I have cancer. It's definitely one way to express your way of thought and keep track like a diary too (:
