There are many different reasons why you may want to start a blog. I started my blog purely as a hobby, and it all grew from there! There are others who start their blog as a way to make money right from the very beginning.
There is no right or wrong answer for why you should start a blog, and many people start blogs for all kinds of reasons.
Below are reasons you may want to think about starting a blog.
5 Reasons to start blogging
1. To Have Fun
Before I started blogging, I never gave it a single thought.
Now that I’ve been blogging for almost a years; I can’t imagine a life without blogging.
I like reading the posts on other blogs, finding new people to talk to, and especially writing.
Blogging is a fun hobby and business to have, regardless of the subject that you are writing about.
2. To Blog For Others
No matter what type of blog you have, you are helping others.
Someone may be motivated by your blog posts, they may learn something new, they may find enjoyment from reading your writing, and so on.
3. To Be a Part of an Awesome Community
I’ve made a lot of good friends through my blog.
And, I love receiving emails from readers and blog friends that I’ve made. Being able to connect and learn from others is one of the biggest positives of blogging.
4. To Grow
A blog can help you grow in so many ways.
You will most likely become even more passionate about the topics that you love, you will constantly learn new things, you will meet many new people, and more.
5. To Create A Side Income
A blog can produce a side income for people. I know a lot of bloggers who make $50 to $500 a month from their blogs, which is a really useful monthly addition to their day job wages. These small amounts make a huge difference to peoples' bank balance at the end of the month. It can provide you with extra money to help improve you and your family's quality of life.
5. To Build a Business
Of course, I have to include this as a reason to start a blog.
Blogging can be a great way to improve the business you already have, or to create a business all on its own.
I know several successful bloggers and they all say the same thing, that blogging is the best thing that has ever happened to them. I agree!
