I love being a blogger. Blogging is an amazing activity. It is a very productive and rewarding way of spending your free time. It is a continuous learning experience in everything from design, writing, networking to marketing. It has given me many opportunities and that is why I am always encouraging others to start and give their ideas and dreams a chance to come alive and thrive. Here are 13 reasons why being a blogger rocks:
Why I love blogging
- Low start up costs
It costs about $50 to get your domain name and hosting for an entire year. Such low start up costs to give yourself a full year to work on that idea you have. Cannot beat that in any other line of business.
- No experience needed
It is one of those “no experience required” jobs. It is pretty simple to start and then it is all down to your creativity, dedication and hard work.
- Wide range of resources for learning
There are so many resources that will help you with most of the aspects of running a site. There are videos resources, there are text resources. Most of them are free.
- Continuous education
You never stop learning. There are always some new technology advancements and you can always find ways to improve everything from design to the way you present your content.
- You are your own boss
You decide everything so there are no excuses. You pick the design of your site, you pick what you write about, you pick how long time you spend on it… you are the boss.
You can work from anywhere at anytime as long as you have a device with internet connection. This gives you freedom to design your own lifestyle any way you wish and also allows you to be flexible and change things along the way.
- Create your own schedule
Some people are night owls, some are early birds, some are night owls and early birds simultaneously. You are free to create your own schedule any way you wish.
- Passive income opportunities
If you work hard and your site becomes successful it can turn into a source of passive income where you no longer have to work as hard on creating new content but you are still able to reap the benefits. This is difficult to achieve in other lines of work.
Having a site allows you to network on many different levels. It spreads the word about you and allows you to meet different people be it just for hanging out or for working together.
It is all about community, be it in the comments area, be it in forums or on social media platforms. You are a part of community with other people from all over the world that are interested in the same things and have same passions as you do.
- Having your own audience
Back in the day it was impossible to build your own platform, it was all about mass media. Now with a good idea, hard work and some luck anyone can build an audience and have thousands of people listening to whatever is that you have on your mind.
- Career opportunities
It can be a career itself, but it can also give you new career opportunities. Many writers have been discovered and offered jobs in because of the knowledge and skills they have shown on their own sites.
- Instant feedback
Whatever idea you may have it no longer takes a lot of time and money to test it in the real life. Having a site and an audience allows you to test ideas and get feedback instantly.
