20 Things you can gain from blogging 2018

62

According to Wikipedia, A blog (a truncation of the expression “weblog“) is a discussion or informational website published on the internet consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (“posts”). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page.

The rate of blogging on the internet is now on the increase because so many

people have now been motivated to start blogging simply because, it
is very easy and mostly free to setup. This act of writing this content
you are reading is simply referred to as blogging.

There are many ways you can be a blogger you can start blogging on your own, or
you can join some blogging company and join their team of bloggers.Here I’m outlining newbies about what they’ll gain from blogging .
Most of my point is basically meant for those that are new to  blogging, but if you
are a pro blogger, you can easily connect yourself to these
points.

What you will gain from blogging

1.From blogging You can Earn decent income

If you’re passionate about a particular niche  and you have decent writing skills,
blogging definitely could be an alternative career path for you and the chance of earning decent income is high.

2.It can enable you to help great causes

Whether
it’s bringing drinkable water to more people, supporting the education
of orphans or building schools for poor communities, blogging can help
you lend a helping hand to great causes you believe in.

3. It helps you build an audience

People
are attracted towards things and places they get value from. When you
start a blog, you can start creating value and building an audience.

4. It lets you help other people

You
want to inspire young people to discover and explore their true
potentials? Start a blog. You want to spread the virtues of your faith?
Start a blog. You wish people would make better choices in relationships
and want to help them achieve that? Start a blog.

5. It disciplines you

Showing up at regular intervals is hard. Blogging helps you cultivate that discipline.

6. It helps you build credibility

Certificates
are fast losing their standing as the acceptable way to prove you have
skills or knowledge on a subject. Whether you’re a job seeker, an
entrepreneur seeking investors, an NGO representative seeking
connections, or a professional seeking clients, starting and running a
blog is the best way to build credibility.
By
regularly sharing helpful information about a subject, and openly
sharing bits about your life, your struggles and glories, you build
trust and position yourself as an expert, and reaching your other goals
becomes much easier.

7. It helps you get published

If
you’re still waiting for a publisher to come pick you – who have no
readers yet – you might wait till… forever. The way out? Pick yourself.
The easiest way to get published today is to first get a blog and build a
loyal readership.

8. It can land you speaking engagements

Your
blog opens you up to a world of opportunities, including speaking
engagements. The feeling is amazing. I know this because it’s happened
to me. I’ve been invited to speak at events and keynote at conferences,
thanks to thoughts I’ve shared on my blog.

9. It can promote your art or hobby

We
all have things that make us tick. Whether yours is writing, bead
making, drawing, painting or singing, a blog can help you promote it.

10. It sharpens your observation

Blogging
challenges you to look beyond the obvious, to ask questions where
everyone else simply nods, and to set the status quo on its head. The
more you blog, the better you see and appreciate tiny details others
take for granted. This translates to a better memory and improved
performance in other stuff you do.

11. It helps you stay in touch with distant friends and family

One
of the most important concerns everyone should have in life are his
family and friends… Family members who love and care. And true friends
always ready to help and support your dreams.
But
sometimes, dear people aren’t near. When the adventures and challenges
of life come calling, we get too far, too busy or too distracted and
forget these important people in our lives.
Having
a blog where you document your life adventures, ideas and struggles
(and maybe even receive comments) is a great way to stay connected with
family and friends who might be thousands of kilometers away.

12. It boosts your creativity

Blogging
pushes you to be resourceful, to envision and try to create the
beautiful things you want to see in the world. You imagine better,
create ideas that challenge norms and share your genius with others.
That’s how to become an idea machine. And you can go ahead to give the world something essential it doesn’t know it lacks.

 

13.  It helps you make better choices

Many
things happen in your life, relationships and environment every day.
You read, see, feel and hear many things every day. You won’t be able to
blog about them all. That means you’ll develop an eye for meaningful
things.
By
selectively blogging on only the most important things to you and your
blog readers, you’ll improve your filter, and become more skilled at
making better choices in your life.

 

14. It brings you joy

Personally,
I’ve found that the feeling of having inspired, helped or saved someone
is what gives me the greatest joy. I’ve heard many other people say the
same thing.
And
since I’ve embraced blogging, it has helped me become more generous
with my knowledge. There’s an amazing bliss I feel with every positive
comment, email, tweet and Facebook share I get from readers whose worlds
my words have impacted.
It’s a great feeling and money cannot buy it.

15. It gives you freedom

Blogging
can give you the freedom to work from anywhere, at any time of the day
and on things you actually enjoy doing. It can give you the freedom to
finally have ample time for your family and your hobbies.
And it can afford you the freedom to travel the world as you please while making a modest living from your blog.

16. It helps you acquire new valuable skills

When
I started blogging, I didn’t know a thing about domain names, hosting
servers, HTML, social media, link building, SEO, blog design, etc. Now I
do.
With
your blog, you instinctively start learning about these stuff and more.
Within a short time, you’ll have amassed a ton of valuable new skills
that you’ll be proud of. These skills alone can make you thousands of
dollars. I know it because that has been the case for me.

17. It eases your personal problems

Everyone
has problems. Whether it’s your health, family or finances you have
challenges with, blogging can be an avenue to get listening ears and
maybe seek help for your personal problems. And isn’t a problem shared
halved?

18. It helps you learn new things

Blogging
is about sharing what you see, or want to see, in the world. It’s about
teaching or sharing what you know and what you, too, are learning. When
you start a blog, you’ll find yourself always learning new things about
your areas of interest so you can keep sharing without running dry of
ideas.
Think
of it this way: when you set out to wash clothes, your objective is to
clean the clothes, not your hands, but it’s your hands which become
clean first.

19. It makes you think clearer

The
ability to think clearly and generate ideas is one of life’s most
critical skills, yet one of the things you don’t get taught in school.
Blogging fills that void, helping you grow your thinking muscles
exponentially.
You’ll
learn to reflect deeply on your life, your relationships and your
society; engage with others intellectually, appreciate the strengths in
arguments and point out the flaws in them; appreciate the tiny
distinctions between what, why and how; the nexus and disparity between
excuses and justifications, and so on.

20. It helps you write better

Many
things have boosted my writing proficiency over the years: essay
contests, tapping from mentors, reading books, etc. But none of them has
challenged me so consistently as blogging.
I’m sure you can’t wait anymore  to run your own blog.
Now all you need to know is How To Choose The Best Platform For Your Blog.
