Thinking of starting a blog? Here are four reasons why you totally should.
Blogging is one of the most underrated jobs and hobbies out there.
Many people do not realise how much their life changes until they actually start their own blog. As you write more, you tend to become more creative and much more productive.
Here are four reasons why everyone should start a blog.
1. You will become more confident
As you start working on your blog, you might feel more confident with every article you post.
CONFIDENCE IS ALWAYS GOOD.
Sharing information with your readers and interacting with them might make you feel more comfortable with trying new things and meeting new people.
2. It will help you develop positive habits
Maintaining a blog requires you to be consistent and disciplined. Personally, I always remind myself to sit down and write a post at least twice every week. This is an awesome way for you to make the most of your day, especially during those pockets of free time during school holidays.
BLOGGING FORCES YOU TO START LIVING BETTER.
In addition, being in the blogging community will force you to walk the talk. For example, if you are constantly telling your readers to drink water, it's quite strange if you are not doing that. It's a win-win!
3. It enhances your resume
WELL, WE DON'T GUARANTEE IT, BUT YOU CAN TRY.
Maintaining a blog can be a big deal, and many companies are starting to acknowledge that. Blogs let them view your writing samples, get to know you better, and see how committed you are.
If you can keep a blog and post consistently, it shows that you are a creative and capable person. These are traits most prospective employers look for.
4. It helps you make friends with people of similar interests
This is one of my favourite reasons for keeping a blog. By just blogging, you will be introduced to a community of people that share similar interests.
YOU COULD SHARE A COOL BOOK YOU JUST READ WITH YOUR NEW FRIENDS.
Here's how you can capitalise on this opportunity. Say your blog has a niche. If you love to blog about books, you may be introduced to other people who love books and blog about it too.
That immediately opens up a world of conversations for you to have with these new people. You could even end up building solid friendships with them!
So, go on and create your own blog based on your interests or even just on your everyday life. You might be surprised with how blogging can transform your life for the better.
