Blogging has been one of my commitments since last year with the support of my boyfriend. Time flies. Before I only have him as my reader in every post I wrote, now I am gaining more. This is now the 7th month that I am engaging myself in writing a bit of everything that sparks my interest. It’s the reason I want to share in today’s blog post 5 reasons to fall in love with blogging.
Here we go.
Reasons to Fall in Love with Blogging
- It improves your reading and writing skills
As you go on your blogging journey, you are going to meet many opportunities for improvement in the long run. One of them is writing. Writing is a skill which means that it takes the time to develop. And no one can improve on his or her writing skills without a consistent practice of it. It does not happen overnight.
This always reminds me of my professor in Philippine Normal University. When my classmates and I were doing our research, he kept on telling us that we could not write anything if we did not read anything. He imparted to us the importance of reading to our Research Course. Since then, it became my number 1 advice to my students whenever our topic will move to writing.
As a blogger, visiting and reading other blogs help you to get an idea about what you wanted to do on your own blog. The more you read, the more you become expose on other’s writing styles. That gives you a hint on how you should write your own topics. You also improve your word’s usage because of reading that leads to writing better articles.
“Just write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens. Most of my friends who are put on that diet have very pleasant careers.”
—Ray Bradbury, WD
- It brings out the creativity in you.
Starting up a blog is easy but when it comes to organizing its content, adding plug-ins, customizing the themes, it takes a lot of work. It might cause you frustrations but through patience and continuous research, you will be able to overcome those headaches.
I don’t have any strands of creativity in me. But because of collaborating with other bloggers, I got an idea on how can I make my blog more presentable. I owe all this information from a lot of generous bloggers online and I will be forever thankful to the different blogging communities I am involved in.
- It gives you the freedom to express yourself and to voice out your opinions.
Not everyone is given the opportunity to be heard. Everyone is busy with another thing. Blogging gives a chance for people to share their opinion on a variety of topics. It can be of business, technology, education, economics, history, politics, and others. Having your own blog means having your online space. This is where you can connect with other people who have the same ideas, opinions, and interest.
- It can generate online earnings.
Earning online has been rampant today. We can earn by publishing videos in youtube.com, chatting with other people in mylot.com, or writing blog entries, submitting quality photos or videos in bitlanders.com. Those are just a few of those many sites online where I see some people flock to receive monetary awards directly to their PayPal. There are also other legitimate sites to earn online.
When it comes to blogging, you can also earn from advertisements, guest postings, and affiliate marketing. Aside from that, a blog is a great tool to offer your services. In fact, your blog can be your online business too.
Blogging can offer huge benefits once we discovered the secrets of getting a high traffic and when we found the right people to connect with. Isn’t it a good idea earning while doing what you love?
- It can make a change in someone’s life
Blogging is sharing information not only to a limited number of people. There is always a possibility that your content will reach many web surfers from all around the world. You don’t know who you are going to inspire and you will just be surprised when people send you messages on how you touch their lives. It is vital that you don’t limit yourself on your ability. Each one of us is unique and you never know how great you are until someone come to you and appreciates what you have.
