Having a blog should be a priority in the world we live today, and if there is anything I will recommend that everybody become, it will be a blogger. Before I started my medifast and nutrisystem diet blog I knew close to nothing about blogging, but when I started to see my friends improve and achieve better results as a result of their blogging efforts I decided to give it a try. It’s been only 3 years of me blogging and I have experienced quite a lot. My skills have improved tremendously over the years, and I have even built a sustainable business that doesn’t rely on me to sustain my income. In this article, I will be sharing with you 3 reasons why I think you should own a blog.
It Helps Improve Your Skills
Having a blog can help you increase your skills significantly, especially considering the fact that you have a lot of people looking up to you. If you decide to be doing what you do alone at the comfort of your home there will hardly be any disturbance or anyone to hold you accountable, but when you know that there are hundreds, or thousands, of people waiting for each and every article you publish and each and every move you make, you will be able to develop yourself to a stage where others can start to look up to you.
Accountability is very important if you really want to succeed, and by being a blogger you will find it easy to improve your skills because you have your readers waiting to see your skills in action.
It Helps You Build Confidence
Another thing about blogging is that it helps you build confidence. I have been blogging for years now, and I have never been as confident as I am in my life within my years of blogging. The reason for this is quite simple, I get to meet a lot of people from different cultures and locations from around the world, and I’ve also been a subject of criticism of a lot of people. While it wasn’t easy to deal with all these in the beginning, over time, it became clear that they are obstacles I have to deal with, and that the only way to overcome them is to learn to embrace them. I am now more bold and confident than ever, and I now find it easy to make the right decision every time. Without blogging, this surely wouldn’t be possible.
It Can be a Source of Side Income
Another thing blogging helped me achieve is that it served as a source of income for me. Even though I was hardly making anything when I started blogging, time has paid off, and I now make thousands of dollars from my efforts every month.
Blogging can be a great source of income for you if you can leverage it, and the great thing about it is that it makes it easy for you to build an audience always ready to listen to you, and that you can create a product for at any time.
