I love blogging. I love sharing inspiration, new ideas, what I’m up to and my outlook on life with you. My blog has become almost like my weekly diary where I document things from different phases of my life. It’s actually very interesting to read back, especially the posts from the few years back, and see what I’ve been through and how I perceived life. And I’m glad you are enjoying reading these posts.
I blog to inspire you. It’s a great and a satisfying feeling when people find your posts helpful and inspiring. Making a difference in people’s lives is definitely the number one priority why I do this. But, there are also many other wonderful benefits about blogging, which can enrich one’s life in so many ways.
Why am I talking about this? To inspire you again. I know quite a few people in my community would love to start a blog. So if you are one of them and are considering starting a blog in 2021, here are some benefits, beside inspiring others, you could expect from a regular blogging:
You improve your writing skills
Ever since I started blogging, on a regular basis, my writing skills have improved. I feel very comfortable expressing myself in a written form and sharing my ideas. Regular blogging can definitely improve your writing skills and it all starts with the first rough draft.
You connect with so many people around the world
You not only connect with people who are looking for inspiration and like what you write about, but you also connect with so many like-minded people (fellow writers, bloggers, authors, coaches). And you can learn so much from each other and also make new friends. I love my writing/blogging and reading community. They are the reason why I do what I do and I appreciate them very much.
You become more disciplined
I’ve always had so much self-discipline when it comes to my work, but blogging weekly for a number of years now, has improved it even more. My subscribers know that they will get an email from me every Tuesday and I keep that promise. The only time I take time off is over Christmas and also in the summer. Except for those two occasions, I write weekly.
And it’s so much FUN!
After all, blogging is so much fun. No, you don’t always feel motivated and the inspiration is not always there. But, here is the magic part: when inspiration does arrive, it’s amazing what you can do with just one simple idea. You can play with the words, edit, tweak and create something absolutely incredible. Blogging is one of the best things I’ve ever decided to start.
The bottom line is, if you are considering starting a blog in 2021, I suggest you go for it. This idea came to you for a reason and you have the opportunity to test it out. If you don’t, how will you know that you won’t like it or it’s too hard? Try it. You have nothing to lose.
