I recently reached 1200+followers (Thank you everyone) on WordPress and many of you asked me to do a post on how did I do that ??. I tried to figure that out. I can’t pinpoint anything and I soon realised I can’t. I am no expert nor experienced. I am still new to blogging and still learning new things everyday. My blog is just 2 months old. Instead I wanted to share why I started a blog and why you should too.
Start a blog
Choosing to start a blog is a fun and creative way to spend your free time!! It’s also a great way to discover other blog you enjoy and connect with others. I will give you some other reason if you are not convinced yet.
Share you ideas
Your blog can be about whatever you desire, it allows you to share your ideas and share your interests to anyone who stumbles across your blog or your posts and articles.
Sky is the limit, so make your blog creative and unique as possible.
Share your experiences. It doesn’t matter what kind of experiences you had so far, big or small. Just that use your blog to share it with others. It could be a good idea to wrap that post with lesson you learn from that experiences, what it taught you and why it is important learning curve of your life.
Express your opinions
Sometimes we don’t always feel comfortable to expressing your opinion in reality to other people with fear of being judged or rejected, so letting it freely flow to your own personal blog is great way to talk about topic you feel strongly for or feel in certain way.
Inspire others with your words.
Use your writing to express your opinions on certain topics, but in the process, allow your words to truly inspires your readers. Give them ideas,tips and encourage them to explore different possibilities.
Any kind of advice you have is worth sharing to hundreds of people who will find and read your blog.
Blogs are great for picking up tips and small pieces of advice, which can be incredibly helpful to someone in certain situation which we all go through at some stage or another.
Create your own identity
You can be whoever you want to be on your blog, there are no rules and regulation. Use this for your advantage by creating your own special identity. Give your interesting yet memorable username, possibly your favourite quote or motto which you live by. This will give your blog a personality. Allow others to know you and your personal style of writing and topics you are interested in talking about
Strengthen your writing skills.
Practice makes perfect !!
Write about anything and everything whenever you had the time or moment to spare. You will get better at writing over time, the more you write the more you post.
Just as authors increase their writing skills when they create a novel, you will increase your own writing skill through your blog.
