I wanted to start a blog, because I wanted an outlet where I could create and share content I thought like minded people may find valuable, and could trust. All the reasons above stopped me, until now. Instead of thinking about the negatives, I started thinking about the positives, and that is what gave me the push I needed to take the leap.
It’s never been easier to start a blog. I had no idea where to start, but it isn’t as difficult as you might think. A quick google search and an endless list of how to guides will appear, my favourite being theminimalists.com. Help is out there.
Starting a blog could lead somewhere exciting. It isn’t guaranteed to, but it’s existence creates the possibility. Think about your favourite blogger, and how their lives have changed because they decided to start a blog, for a little inspiration. It’s only by never starting, that you can guarantee your blog won’t lead anywhere at all.
Writing for an audience, will encourage you to process thoughts more deeply and this will make you a better thinker. As an over thinker, who often gets lost in their own thoughts, I’d definitely benefit from this. You will also become a better writer. Imagine, being able to communicate and express yourself more effectively with just your words. Even if nobody reads it, you’ll have a beautiful scrapbook you can look back on.
A blog is a great way to engage with like minded people, who share a hobby, passion or interest. As an introvert and a rare personality type, this idea appeals to me. Social media platforms are bringing in more and more algorithms, that dictate what we see and when. This makes it harder to engage with people we want to, because we are missing each other’s posts. A blog’s content is always available.
Money is a possibility when it comes to blogging but I didn’t start for money. I’m not against making money, I need it to live and travel etc, but its not the purpose of this blog.
