I’m assuming that if you’re reading this, you’ve thought of starting a blog at some point. Maybe you haven’t, but I’m here to tell you. You absolutely should! Now, I know what you’re thinking. Why should I start a blog? Why would people want to hear me? Trust me. I get it, but I promise they do! I know it can be a scary thing to put yourself out there in such a vulnerable way, but oh my is it worth it.
You will meet some freaking amazing people.
Hands down the number one reason I love blogging. I have made wonderful friends and connections for life. The blogging community is filled with so many amazing people; people who will love you for you, have your back 100%, and support you all the way.
You have an entire platform waiting for your story.
Everyone has a story to tell. We’re waiting to hear yours, whatever it is. The best thing is that you decide how much or little you let the world in on. You can dig deep and let loose those emotions you’ve been in holding in like I did here when I told the world my miscarriage story (my most viewed post to date by the way) or you can keep it all in and talk about your love for beauty products, photography, or whatever it is that gets your heart jumping.
You can make a little money or a lot.
If you’re looking to toss that day job, blogging can be the way to do it. It won’t happen over night though. In fact, it will take a lot of work. There are tons of ways to monetize your blog, like affiliate links, sponsorships, and more. What’s great about it though is that you can choose exactly what avenues to take here and how much or how little you want to make.
You can show off those badass writing skills.
Have you always loved to write? Have you been dreaming of letting the world hear your voice? Blogging is such a great way to do it and is filled with so many opportunities to really set off your writing career.
It’s all yours and you can do whatever you want.
Have fun with it! Blogging is one hell of a creative outlet and can turn into so much more. You can write about anything you want. You truly have an open door to let the world see the real you and it’s so much fun. Ahh, I love it!
Have you already took that leap into the blogging world? I’d love to hear your reasons for starting a blog.
