5 Reasons You Should Start Blogging Right Away

Blogs today have become a fundamental part of this generation worldwide and is gradually turning into a passion for most. These days, It’s raining blogs as life was never so tech savvy until today. Ink is replaced by the keyboard, foster a global reach for readers across the globe.
Whether one needs information or needs to share a personal experience, all you need is to gear up and punch in a few keys on the keyboard and start writing your own blog.

A blog refers to an online journal or informational website displaying information in reverse chronological order, with latest posts appearing first. It is a platform where a writer or even a group of writers share their views on an individual subject. Here are the top 5 reasons I think you should start blogging right away:

It’s free:
Your blog can begin today without a penny. With an initial investment of time and Rs.0, this is a great deal, where you can kick start your blogathon on a free platform like WordPress. For a reader sitting in some corner of the world, a blog is accessible as well as editable. This makes sharing experiences and recommendations available world wide with just internet cost. The best things in life come for free, here it’s knowledge.

You become a master of your subject:
Before you write the first sentence of your new blog, you are expected to Read, read and read more. You can brainstorm on the internet, take references from books, other blogs and articles to design your initial blog architecture. It is but obvious if you read weather on the net or black and white books, you are sure to give your writing piece a kick. You will definitely become a master in your subject as you wouldn’t restrict yourself to just one aspect of the topic. Example: If you are a travel enthusiast and wish to start a travel blog, you would have a plethora of topics to share your views on. Like, Do’s and Don’ts in Paris, How the Euro rail pass helps, best attractions in Austria, etc. After writing some 40-50 blogs, you are almost an influencer in your industry. You are then capable and knowledgeable enough to even recommend as per your experience while readers ask for it live.

Tell your story:
A blog platform gives you the opportunity to tell your story. It could be as vague as writing about your experience in a local train in Mumbai to a train journey to Singapore via Singapore airlines. As you write more and more you build your fan following/ follower list who like reading your articles. An interesting topic is not the only reason that attracts a reader to come back for more, it also depends on the style of writing a writer adapts to. Some writers write your experience in the form of a story, where as some write it like a journal. The ultimate aim here is to reach a stage where people find value/meaning over your recommendations which indirectly influences actions of the reader for their own good.

You’ll become more well-rounded in your mindset:
Writing a great piece requires more than just you begin with brainstorming for a trending topic to write on for which you need to go through trends online. You also tend to pick up topics which are most questioned or topics which answer some worldwide queries. Example: If you are a cricket fan and write about cricketers and share your opinion on matches you definitely would write about the NZ V/S England world cup final match. After your finalise a topic you brainstorm for some great references to back your writing. After your blog is live and readers share their comments in the comments box, the author needs to respond to each one of them. This gives him a well-rounded mindset which goes like this: Brainstorm for topics – Brainstorm for content – Get it up live – revert to each reader comment. Sometimes a reader comment can also ignite your new blog topic. This process gets you to develop an eye for meaningful things making you a better thinker and hence a better writer.

Networking at its optimum:
Once your writing is regarded as a solution to various online queries shot by your readers, your blog gains popularity as a solution provider in your respective domain. You may get ample opportunities to network with readers all around the world who have queries/recommendations or even ask for more details. Example: Yoga was a subject which was a very Indian and India’s were the target audience. It picked up pace only when people in India started blogging about its benefits and cures which got great response abroad. The ultimate aim of a successful blogger is that his blog page serves the readers and helps them find answers to their questions.

Blogging has come a long way since its first appearance in the late 1990’s and was used as a unique platform to share a person’s thoughts, feelings, opinions or experiences, It was considered to be an online journal or personal diary with a minimal following. Today, it has grown into a platform used by millions, making it a mass information sharing platform without boundaries. The simplicity of a blog makes it an effortless task for anyone to launch his/her blog and become a self-proclaimed “expert.”

Writing good content is as stimulating as Black Coffee, it makes you ask for more. So what are you waiting for? Start hitting the keys and your words will soon become an addiction for many readers.
