Blogging Helps You Express Yourself

The thing that I love most about blogging is that I get to express myself and share my opinions about topics that are important to me. I can also vent if I want. I love having the freedom to just be me.

Get Noticed By People

Blogging is one of the best ways to get your topic, product or business in front of people because search engines, like Google, love to share pages that are full of quality information that give real value to its readers.


Website Traffic

Blogging is cheaper than advertising and is a great way to get readers to your website.

Get More Customers

The reason that every good business has a blog, is because blogs bring more customers to their business website. And this gives them more customers. No doubt about it!

Blogging Helps You Get Connected

I have made so many new friends through blogging. It is fun realizing that there are many people out there who are very similar to me and share some of the same ideas and values that I do. I love the way blogging helps me to connect with other like minded people.

Be Yourself! You Don't Have To Be Perfect To Blog

The thing I love most about blogging is that you don't have to be the best writer who has perfect grammar. Sure, it helps, but reader care more about what you have to say rather than how you say it. And if they don't like what your have to say, they can simply click it off.

Blogging is an Easy Hobby

If you have a passion for writing, then you should be blogging. It is fun and easy to get started.

There are many different platforms that you can use, many of which are free. For example you can join Hubpages right now and start sharing some of your knowledge or simply express yourself. But keep in mind, when you write at a free platform you have to abide by any rules created by the site. Otherwise your work may be unpublished or even removed.

If you prefer to have total control over all of your content, then you may want to create your own website hosted on your own domain. It is easier and cheaper to do then you may realize.


Make Money With Affiliate Marketing

There are many different ways you can make money blogging online. One of the ways I earn money with my Wordpress Blogs is through affiliate marketing.

Affiliate Marketing is when you recommend a company to a reader that your are affiliated with. If and when that reader buys a product through your link, you make money. But more importantly, you were responsible for helping someone find a solution to a problem.

Many people are apprehensive in doing affiliate marketing because they are not comfortable selling products on their site. But if you think about it, you sell all the time. Every time to talk to someone about a movie you just saw and loved or a product you use, you are selling.

Why not write about the products your love and make money?

Share Your Knowledge Through Blogging

If you are an expert in something, blogging is a great way to share your knowledge and expertise. And you will be helping others.

Journal Through Blogging

Blogging is a great way to journal some of your life experiences which is great therapy. Journaling is good for your overall mindset and well being.
