Quick History

Blogging is popularized decades ago when people decided to make an online diary of themselves, to log things, brag about almost everything they have, teach and assist people online, sell digital stuffs like e-books and creatives, offer digital services and solutions, as well as utilizing blogging itself to promote people, products, organizations and causes. But there is this most important thing that we can benefit from blogging; that is to exercise our brain. From the time the internet has been made public, until now, blogging is pushing itself to evolve relentlessly. Starting from digital personal logs and personal write-ups to professional articles, micro-blogging, tweeting and now vlogging, blogging remains the perfect way for publishers to express their thoughts and feelings online.

Mental and Emotional Enhancer

Yes, blogging is a good mental and emotional exercise! Unnoticeably, it enhances our brain-eye-hand coordination. If my analysis is precise, I can assure that it improves our language skills, research skills, writing skills, editing skills, software skills, social skills and even our emotional skills. It teaches us to be patient, to evaluate, to focus and eventually to concentrate on topics we blog about. Blogging challenges our brain. It pushes us to be aware of something we are not fond of. It keeps track of our thoughts and ideas. It makes our writing improve by considering criticisms from readers. It extracts both creative juices and logical sense out of our brains. It contributes to the balance use of our mind and emotion.

Realization

Benefits of blogging becomes obvious as we try to list all of its positive effects to people. As the list of beneficial effects goes on, I asked myself, "Why am I not doing it? If it is known to improve both my mind and emotion then why am I not blogging?". I had this realization and it quickly convinced me to write about anything sensible that comes out of my head. I told myself that I should write and pursue blogging from now on. I am encouraging anyone who reads this to do the same. I am sure most of you wants to have a healthy mind and to have a good grasp of your emotions. Who knows if someday we might be one of the best writers and bloggers around? I hope this realization of mine makes sense to you and that it serves to convince you to blog as well.

Conclusion

Blogging is already mainstream unless it continues to evolve splitting into specific actions concerning different areas and industries. To sum it up, it is vital to consider that blogging improves our language skills, research skills, writing skills, software and related skills. It teaches us to be patient, to evaluate, to focus, and eventually, to concentrate on topics we blog about. There is absolutely no reason not to try blogging. Like writing, blogging is not hard to do. Anyone who blogs can also be consistent of doing it without any problems. The only real challenge is for you to start doing it. There are lots of resources and tutorials available online that can help you kickstart on this chosen path.
