Blogmas: 5 Reasons To Start A Blog In 2018

Happy Tuesday.

I pray you’re all feeling well and doing fine.

Let’s talk blogging.

I started my first official blog (outside of xanga, lol) in 2009. I have loved it ever since. I think there are great reasons to be blogging, so let me share 5 reasons you should start blogging in the new year.

  • You’re Building A Platform. Are you a writer or an artist? Do you have a business or brand? A blog is a great way to do add to your platform. You can let your readers, customers, and/or social media followers get to know you and your content a little better by posting 1-2x a week. It’s not as overwhelming as it may seem. Blogs are fun and you can really use your writing voice to make a deeper impact.
  • Get Your Thoughts Out. Blogs don’t have to be these crazy professional things that you invest in. You can use it as a public dairy. Do you ever feel like FB status’ just limit your thoughts? A blog would be a great place to write and then still share with those same friends and family.
  • Document A Journey Or Your Year. If you’ve got goals or are tackling a new adventure, maybe you’re moving or starting a workout program…Document it by keeping a blog. It makes the process fun and then others can be encouraged by your journey. It’s also great accountability.
  • Inspire And Encourage Others. Do you get asked questions a lot on a certain subject by others? Maybe your home decor or marriage advice? If you get asked questions about something, chances are you already have an audience who wants to know more…FROM YOU! Using a blog to encourage and inspire others is an amazing thing to do. Share your wisdom or tips/tricks. Have fun with it and get excited about motivating people.
  • You’re Looking For A New Hobby. Blogging is so much fun. The community is great. You can take things you already like doing and then blog about it. It’ll be a new hobby for you but still won’t take up much time.

Blogging is awesome. And I can’t emphasize no.1 enough.

If you want to have an online presence, then start that blog my friend. 😉
