Why I Started Blogging

I have been blogging now for three years. I really enjoy it.

I love to write and get my thoughts out there.

I love it when people comment back because I know they are reading it.

I started blogging during a hard point in my life.

It was hard to take.

I decided to start a blog just to have a place to write about what I was feeling.

I never thought it would gain a lot of readers or even make me money.

I would usually blog once a week to start.

The more I poured out my heart, the more people started to read it and comment.

I heard from a lot of people that they had gone through the same thing.

I got a lot of encouragement.

I hope I can keep blogging and grow to earn a full-time income.

Right now I work for an advertising agency but would love to be able to quit my job and just be a blogger.

It would be like a dream come true for me.

A lot of people ask me why I started blogging and what I like about it.

I usually tell them that I started blogging to begin the healing process but I enjoy blogging because it helps me meet other people.

It helps them realize they are not alone.

From blogging I have been able to meet so many other bloggers.

I really believe writing things out is the best way to heal when you go through something like a loss or a breakup.

You can really get your feelings out and it makes you feel better.

I know it works that way for me.

These days I spend a lot of time on it.

I try to write 3-4 posts a week. Sometimes it is a lot of work.

I want to keep at it because I really think I am helping people. If I just stopped blogging people would notice.

Sometimes I like to go to the library and write.

Other times I just do it at home.

I go where I feel I will be able to write. That is different depending on my mood.

If I had not started my blog I would have just written in my personal page.

I would have been able to heal but I would not have had the encouragement of others.

That is why I am so thankful I started the blog.

Why Blogging Is Good For You

Blogging is the latest craze of the online world. More and more people of all ages write blogs about their personal life or about various topics they are passionate about. We are going to see now why blogging is good for you by discussing a few of the benefits of this social interaction form.

First of all, many humans have a strong need to express themselves. As not all of us can be artists, blogging will help even the less gifted to benefit from putting their thoughts and feelings in a shape that can be shared with others. Psychologists advise lonely and introvert persons to try to open up by keeping a diary. If we were to push the diary a step forward, we could keep it online, in a blog. The entry barrier in blogging is very low, as anybody can open a free blog and have it up and running in as little as five minutes.

There’s another benefit to blogging, which is earning money. If your writing is interesting, readers will be tempted to subscribe to your RSS feed, in order to be able to read your new articles just as you publish them. After you manage to build a bigger audience, you can simply display advertising on your blog and get paid for it. You could sign up with Google AdSense, for instance, a free advertising network which is excellent because it serves targeted ads. This means that if your blog is about pets, your readers will see pet-related ads.

Another way to make money from a blog is to use affiliate offers. For example, if you just bought yourself a juicer, you can write a thorough review of it and publish it on your blog. You can take photos, or even make little videos to demonstrate the benefits of your juicer. Then you’ll want to give your readers a place where they can go and buy the product for themselves. This place can be either Amazon or another online store which comes with an affiliate program attached. When you join an affiliate program, you’ll be given some links to put on blog, links leading to products of your choice and which will bear your personal affiliate ID with them. Each time somebody makes a purchase via your affiliate link, the software will tell that to the vendor, who then will give you the agreed commission for making that sale.

Making money from a blog is not rocket science. However, it might take time and effort before being able to generate enough revenue to quit your day job, so you shouldn’t rely on this too much. Nonetheless, even if you make no money, blogging is good for you because it helps you build a community of people sharing the same passions. Your readers will be able to interact with you by leaving comments on your blog or by sending you email messages. You might even end up by making new friends for life. This in itself is an awesome thing because friendships are among the most important things we have on this planet.
