Before I lay out all of the reasons why blogging is great for you to let’s discuss all of the myths about why you can’t start blogging.
1- You don’t have the time!
Stop worrying – you don’t need to post every day! Now you can smile 🙂
2- You don’t have the money or technical skills.
Don’t worry there are several platforms on the market where you can create and publish your blog. including blogger.com, WordPress.com or set up your own blog on wordpress.org.
3- You are not a writer.
Trust me anyone can be a writer, If you can think, if you can speak – you can write also. When you are writing a blog, no one expects you to be Shakespeare! 🙂
1- TO EXPRESS YOUR THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS
Blogging will help you if you have ideas. a solution of the problem, and want to say something to the world. The blog is the perfect medium to express your thoughts.
Every person has own views on each topic but people don’t express because they hesitate to express their thoughts and those feelings, suggestions, solutions never comes out.
Don’t bind yourself to the limits, express yourself and trust me, it’ll give you a pleasure.
When I’ve started my blogging career, Many people were laughing at me and said that how this boy will write?
Yes! they were right, the Same question was also disrupting me. Because I was thinking about the society and my friends that they will laugh at me but I killed my negative thoughts with positive thoughts and started writing.
Now people read my blogs, like my blogs and share my blogs. Now I have a worldwide audience and it makes me happy.
2- TO MARKET AND PROMOTE A PRODUCT
Many case studies have proven that blogging is an excellent way to help market or promote yourself or your business, product or service without spamming social media websites.
Take a look at this case study:
Digital photography school, the blog that became a business
Darren Rowse started his blog Digital Photography School (DPS) in April 2006, writing all the posts himself. You might like to take a look at his initial goals for the DPS blog, posted in August 2006 on ProBlogger. At that point, he wrote:
“This week [dPS is] averaging around 3000 RSS readers (this number goes up and down significantly)
My [dPS] newsletter subscriber list has grown to around 1800 subscribers”
Those are some great stats for a blog that was less than two months old … though keep in mind that Darren already had a strong blogging presence with ProBlogger, and was able to bring in readers from some of his earlier photography-related sites.
It wasn’t until 2009 that Darren launched his first ebook for DPS; until that point, he’d been monetizing the blog through other methods like advertising and affiliate links. In $72,000 in E-Books in a Week – 8 Lessons I Learned, he wrote:
“Both with this Portrait e-book and the development of 31 Days to Build a Better Blog workbook I’ve discovered that having a product of your own is something quite powerful. Not only is it an income stream – but it’s something that has a real impact upon both your readers and your standing in your niche/industry.”
Now, in 2013, Digital Photography School is a huge site – and a full business. The blog has over a million RSS / email subscribers. It sells ten photography-related e-books, by a number of different authors, and also runs some advertising.
