So why go through all these efforts just to maintain a blog? Well let me share to all of you how being a blogger can be an advantage to anyone.
FIRST: BLOGGING HELPS YOU IMPROVE YOUR GRAMMAR.
Having a good grammar is important especially with your professional career. I don’t think it should be perfect but it is a must to learn the basics. Blogging is a great medium for you to practice and at the same time improve your writing skill.
SECOND: BEING A BLOGGER HELPS YOU REFRESH YOUR MIND.
This is actually the primary reason why I started blogging. I wanted to make sure that I won’t forget the things I’ve learned regarding advertising. Blogging is a great medium to actually refresh your mind from time to time regarding a topic or field of interest that you feel is important to you as a person.
THIRD: YOUR BLOG CAN BE YOUR ONLINE PORTFOLIO.
Employers are now more active seeking online for their possible candidates to work in their company. Sharing your blog URL on your online account like LinkedIn, Jobstreet and etc. can give its viewer a clearer grasp on who you are professionally. Also, you can put a page in your blog dedicated to showcase your previous work materials.
FOURTH: BLOGGING CAN HELP YOU EARN EXTRA BUCKS
I actually know some people that I’ve worked with who had earned a lot of cash from blogging. Mostly they are SEO professionals who are well equipped with the technical skills to actually generate revenue through their blogs. Also, well known bloggers with a good number of online followers may attract advertisers to invest in their blog.
FIFTH: BLOGGING HELPS YOU TAP THE CREATIVES SIDE IN YOU.
One of the biggest challenge of being a blogger is to actually make sure that people find the interest to read your post. This will tap the creative side in you that you never knew existed. (Well at least for me, that’s how it works.) It feels nice to actually challenge yourself to create a more creative and insightful post to share in your blog site. It should be a constant goal for any blogger to give their page variety to keep it interesting and informative. Eventually you’ll see yourself channeling creative and timely ideas that are perfect for your blog.
