Why You Should Start A Blog

Blogging is a very powerful and effective tools to reach out to million of reader all about the world. It has reached such a high popularity that you see people from all walks of life, be it politicians, businessmen, students, professionals, started blogging.

And, if you are still wondering if you should follow the latest trend and start a blog, here are some of the reasons why you should:-

  1. Express Your Thoughts and Opinions

    In the past, when you have something to say, the only places you can go to is newspaper or magazine and even then, your letter might not be published or are subject to moderation.

    With a blog, you are free to write whatever thing you want to, nobody can stop you from doing so. Of course, you might want to be careful of what you write that may cause any legal issue out of it.

    Take this blog Asia'h Epperson as an example. Most articles that I wrote is all about personal rambling, I get the freedom to write whatever that I want, nobody can stop me from doing so.

  2. To Help People

    If you feel that you have great knowledge about a particular topic or field, then, you should start to blog about that. It will help people who are looking for such information.

    For example, you might have fall into debt and after years of struggling, manage to clear all debts and becomes a millionaire. Now, go ahead and write about your experience, from falling into debt, clearing them and how you finally get rich.

    Or if you are an experience parent, people will be interested to read about all the encounters and experience you go through from having baby, born, nursing to raising them.

  3. Stay Connected

    It is very common nowadays for friends or family member to live in different part of the world. You might have moved to another part of the world due to work commitment, study or maybe backpacking. Blog provide another alternative to keep them update about you. All you need is a internet connection and you can upload your photos, videos or stories and they are able to see them.

  4. Make Money

    Yes, there is money to be made from blogging, but, it really depends on the kinds of topics and blogs you have. Let’s take the example of point 2 where you blogs about getting out of debt. Once your blog gets readers and traffic, you can put up advertisement or affiliate products that can enable you to make some money out of it.

    It is important to note that to make money out of blogging, it takes times and patience. Don’t expect to make big bucks from it in the beginning, it is not going to happens.

    Again, we look at this blog Asia'h Epperson. This kind of personal blog is not going to make any money, so it is important that if you decided to make money online through blogging, you start on a right topic.

So, anything else that is holding you back from starting a blog?
