Have you been thinking of starting up a blog?

If you’re wanting a little more information about starting a blog and why you should do so you’re at the right place.

Here are 6 reasons why you should start a blog:

IT DOESN’T COST ANYTHING

Yes, it’s totally FREE and it will only take you the best of 30 minuites to totally set up! That’s including choosing your blog name, your theme for your blog, your colour scheme, and any other details. You can set your blog up from the comfort of your sofa on hosting sites such as WordPress and Blogger.

YOU HAVE THE CREATIVE FREEDOM

You are able to write about whatever topic you would like to from fashion to lifestyle, home decor, parenting, music etc. If you want to upload posts on several topics then you can, this is your personal online space that you have total control over.

IT’S A PLACE TO SHARE YOUR WRITING 

It’s your online outlet and a space which you should be proud of, it’s a way to get others to read what you have to say. If writing is your passion, this is a way to get others to read what you’ve created.

IT’S A WAY TO MEET NEW PEOPLE

When you start off blogging you will follow other bloggers on Twitter; you’ll be added into Twitter chats, Facebook and Pinterest groups. This will allow you to get chatting to others that have a blog and maybe even spark a new friendship.

YOU CAN EARN MONEY FROM BLOGGING

Honestly, you’re not going to earn money from blogging from the get-go or maybe not even for a whole year but it’s something to work towards. With hard work, dedication, and passion you can create a good amount of traffic to your blog and this is when you can start earning a little.

IT’S SOMETHING TO ADD TO YOUR CV

There are many new skills you will learn from blogging such as writing, social media, photography, photo editing, time management, planning, emails etc.

If you’re looking for a career in social media then your blog is perfect to add to your CV.

Are you tempted to start your own blog?

    Love this post, as it was straight to the point! I love blogging and started because it offered creative freedom with other benefits like meeting new people and possibly making an income!

    I opted to pay for really cheap hosting for my first year rather than opting for a free option because I thought I’d ve more likely to stick with it if I’d invested something in it, best decision ever x

    It took me a long time to actually start my blog but I am glad I did so. I find the whole process quite enjoyable actually – the writing, editing, and taking pictures.

    Great post also! These reasons would definitely push someone whos interested in blogging to actually begin!

    All of these are amazing points, especially the last one! When I went for interviews, I used my blogging to talk about skills and dedication towards work and I believe it gave me an edge over my peers who also interviewed for the positions (for a job right out of college). Blogging is quite useful above just writing and “fame”.

    I have a blog already. I’ve always liked writing. But, I’ve never gotten anything published. Blogging is an easy, free way to let the world see my writing.

      I agree, it’s a good way to write without any pressure and deadlines

    This post is SO true. I honestly had no idea how much blogging would change my life but it absolutely has – from bringing me great opportunities to introducing me to some of my best friends in the world! I think it’s so cool that anyone who wants a creative space on the internet can have one. It’s so much fun!
