Why You Should Blog or 15 Benefits of Blogging

blog-bloggingThere are million of blogs on the Internet these days. They are all different. Some of them are very popular. The others are not read at all.

Blogs have become a new media channels and we all are looking for our own audience.

So why all those people blog? (many will immediately say to make money, but nope that’s not what I meant). Why is blogging so popular?

Blogging has many benefits. I came up with my list but I am sure that there are still many benefits I have forgotten to mention.

Let’s see…

1. Blogging develops writing skills

We all know that more we write better the writing becomes. Blogging is about writing on regular basis and the regular writing sessions make you a skillful writer.

2. Increases your knowledge base

The blogosphere is a very dynamic place and it develops in a very fast pace. In order to keep up you will learn new things all the time – be that the different technical tricks or a new social media channel to use.

3. Visibility

If you start a blog and do everything right after a while people will know you. People from virtually anywhere in the world will be reading your blog and you will become visible to them.

4. Develops research skills

You don’t know everything and as a blogger you will often be writing about a topics that need research.

5. Networking

You can’t even imagine how many new people you will know along the blogging journey. You will network with people from different cultures, different age groups and professions. But the most important point is: those will be the people, who will share with you the same passion.

6. Provides self-fulfillment

Your blog something that you have creating from scratch. Watching it grow and succeed provides a self-fulfillment indeed.

7. Makes you understand yourself better

Before writing a blog post you think about the topic in more details than you would otherwise do. Your thoughts eventually lead you to new discoveries and as a result you start understanding yourself better.

8. May help you earn income

Please note that the two key words here are “may” and “help”.

9. Helps you pursue your passion

The most successful blogs are those, which are created around blogger’s passion.

10. Engages conversations

Your blog is not a diary or a monologue. Blogging presumes interaction and dialogue. Blog post comment threads are precious. The conversations of your readers and yourself create the gratifying sense of community. The community that was created by you!

11. Great place to test ideas

Your blog is the best place where you can try new things and get feedback. You can test ideas, new approaches and different projects.

12. Helps you reach out far countries

Let’s take me for example. I am from Armenia and it is not easy being far away from all the places, where great things are happening. Knowing people from far countries is a challenge too. So the Internet, the social networks and of course my blog are the tools I use to reach out.

13. Improves communications skills

No matter what kind of blog do you have and what do you write about it all comes down to one essential thing at the end – communication. If you want to become a successful blogger you have to communicate with your readers.

14. Great personal branding tool

We all have different roles play in life. Many of those roles dictate certain behavioral. Your blog is a place where you can be yourself. You represent your own individual brand here and should work on your branding.

15. Can assist in getting new job, publishing contract, etc.

Many well-known bloggers have been approached by publishing houses and offered a contract. New career opportunities, such as consulting, coaching, etc. may also come your way. You never know what will be waiting for you once you make your blog successful.

Sounds great right? The thing is I did not mention that this was  only the bright side of the story. Unfortunately starting and growing a successful blog is not easy. It requires discipline, dedication and patience. You will have to be serious about it. But at the same time, if you blog about the things you are passionate about it you will have fun along the way.

Please feel free to share your blogs in the comments and let us know what made you start blogging. It would be great to hear real life blog stories.
