There are many reasons to start a blog. They could be to improve writing, make some extra money, have a creative outlet, meet new people, etc.
I started my blog because I wanted to tell my story and help people. I’ve been wanting to start a blog for years and it was finally the right time. To me, blogging is a way to express myself.
I recommend you start a blog as soon as you can. For help with starting your blog, you should check out this post. Make sure you grab your FREE checklist as well. Here are some of the big reasons why I think you should start a blog ASAP.
Helps You Gain Confidence
Because of my social anxiety blogging has really helped me get outside my comfort zone. I don’t have to worry about talking to someone face to face or worrying about what they will think of me. This helps me to feel more confident in myself. For more help with growing your confidence check out this post.
It’s a great feeling knowing that someone is out there reading my content. It helps boost me up when I know I helped someone or put a smile on their face. You have to give to get.
Provides Great Opportunities
Having a blog creates many great opportunities. These include collaborating with other bloggers, financial gain, and self-growth. If you have a business it’s also a great idea to have a blog as well.
Typically when you start blogging you are doing it alone. Being able to network with other bloggers is huge because you can get more eyes on your content as well as build relationships. I’ve made some blogger friends since I started which would have been hard before with my social anxiety.
Allows You To Help People
I’ve always loved to help people and it was no different when I started my blog. Sharing my experiences while on this blogging journey has helped people in their lives. Getting those comments or messages from my readers really makes my day.
Someone could stumble across your blog and it’s exactly what they need. Whether it be recipes, tips for losing weight, fashion ideas, parenting tips, etc. You never know what someone needs. Just get your content out there.
Make Some Extra Money
When it comes to making money with your blog there are many ways to do it. There’s affiliate marketing, guest posts, products/services, ads, etc. There are many bloggers who were able to quit their 9-5 jobs because of their blog.
It’s definitely possible to make a bunch of money with your blog. It takes hard work and a lot of planning. Nail down your strategy and you will be making money in no time.
Those are some of the reasons why I think you should start a blog. Blogging is hard and time-consuming but I really feel like it’s worth it. I have something that’s mine. I can put myself out in the world from the comfort of my home. This is essential to me because of my social anxiety.
Everyone has their own reasons for starting a blog. Find yours and go get started today!
