22 Reasons for You to Blog

I have been blogging for over a year now. Oh yeah, and guess what?

This post is the 100th post on Gloson Blog! So I thought I better make it grand.

I’d like to share 22 reasons for you to blog here (or 22 benefits of blogging). Pretty cool for the 100th post, huh?

By the way, one of the most common reason people stop blogging is because they don’t have a reason to do it. They don’t have a source of motivation. So, here is the list of reasons for you to blog. 😉

You Should Blog Because... (Picture by Gloson/me)

Blogging will improve your…

1. Writing skills Photo by athena.

One thing blogging has improved a lot in my life is my writing skills.

I have noticed that my writing skills started to improve rapidly during the first few months I started blogging. And soon, I realized that my writing was becoming more professional.

My writing skills improves because when I blog, I write. Writing is the best way to improve your writing skills, right? Obviously. And when I write, I need information and I go to read other blogs too. And reading is another essential for improving your writing skills.

2. Communication skills

When you blog, you get feedbacks. And when it comes to feeding back the feedbacks, you have to communicate. And when you learn to communicate, you improve your communication skills and learn to communicate better.

3. Tech skills

When I was 8, I started creating websites using simple HTML and created www.wholebrainlearning.net. I haven’t updated it since two years ago.

Photo by Laughing Squid Now, I know basic PHP, CSS, and coding, and more HTML. It is because I have had to tweak my blog design to make it more unique, and also add more features to my blog’s theme.

Do you know that my other website, Poetry Talents, is using the same theme as Gloson Blog (this blog)? It’s only a matter of modification.

4. Thinking skills and creativity

Blogging can give your mind some good exercise. A good blog post takes effort to write, right? Right. And you can get creative with your blog posts too.

Blogging gives you the opportunity to…

5. Make mistakes and learn from it (experience)Photo by Sybren A. Stüvel

You will make some mistakes as you blog, and that’s cool 8) , because if you make mistakes, you will learn and will not repeat the same mistakes in life.

And even cooler 8) 8) 8) , you can turn your mistakes into killer blog posts 😉 . Mwahahaha…

6. Make friends

Blogging is a great place to meet people and make friends with them. As you meet and interact other bloggers, you make friends with them and help each other. But be careful who you make friends with!

7. Make money

I also got the chance to put Google Adsense to my blog and make a little money through it. Photo by Jeff Belmonte Although I don’t focus on making money, some other bloggers do.

They make money though Google Adsense, advertising, affiliates, and even writing blog posts for other people. Some of them even make a living out of blogging! However, you need to use the right tactics and strategies.

8. Help others

By writing useful articles, you help other people solve their problems or discover something. Helping people gives you happiness. At the same time, you make friends.

9. Inspire people and make a difference

Blog posts also sometimes inspire people to do better. You could write an inspirational, motivational, or a thought-provoking blog post. When people see that I started blogging at 10, they might get inspired to start a blog too. Hee hee…

10. Build name/brand

If you write a lot of good articles and help a lot of people, you build your name/brand on the web. Blogging might even make you famous one day.

Photo by stacya11. Listen and learn from feedbacks

You can find out your readers’ thoughts and suggestions about your stories or ideas by looking in the comments section. Sometimes, there might even be quality comments like constructive criticism, that teaches us to become better.

You can also post question posts too. I’ve made a post asking why my readers unsubscribe from blogs and received some interesting replies.

12. Experiment and research

Blogging gives you to opportunity to experiment and research. For example you could see which type blog post is more popular and why that is so.

13. Learn about what life really is

Sometimes, blogging gives you a perspective of life. For example, sometimes you get hate comments and there are people who will become jealous of you. Well, that is what real life is like too. In fact, I think most of the things in blogging apply to real life. Blogging also teaches you how to deal with that situation.

14. Become a leader

When you write useful articles and get lots of blog readers/followers, you are being a leader. With that, you can accomplish more and help others grow.

15. Create something new and valuable

By blogging, you can create something new, original, and valuable and share it in your blog with your friends.

Blogging is a place to…

16. ExplorePhoto by Kapungo and learn

As you blog, you will learn more things. Usually people blog about a certain topic that they are passionate about. Blogging will expand your knowledge about that topic very much. Since I’ve started blogging, my knowledge about technology and blogging increased a lot.

17. Express and share

Let’s say you are passionate about something. And blogging is a great place to express and share your passions, and be heard.

18. Keep in touch

Personal blogs are a terrific way to keep in touch with your friends or family from different parts of the world, by posting stories, videos, pictures, etc.

Blogging is

Photo by bogenfreund19. A better use of time

Instead of using your free time for playing that favorite computer game of yours, why not write a new blog post?

20. A journey

When you post articles, you are like writing a diary or a journal. After some time, when you look back at your oldest posts to your newest posts, you can understand more about yourself and learn to improve.

21. FunPhoto by kaibara87

You know, it’s fun writing articles on topics you are passionate about, helping people solve problems, and doing blogging stuff!

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

22. Discipline

When you are blogging, you discipline yourself by finding the time to blog or sticking to a posting schedule.

It’s a good challenge to take up. It raises your self-esteem and gives you the ability to do more difficult tasks. (Yes, I’m not perfect in my blogging consistency. But I’ll try and try again to stick to posting at least once a week 😉 )

_______

Update (26 Aug 09) Bonus Reason:

Blogging teaches you to be patient

When I first started blogging, there were not much visitors, comments, or subscribers on my blog. But now, after a year already, I have a good number of visitors, comments, and subscribers. Blogging teaches us to be patient and tells us not to give up.

_______

So there you go, 22 reasons (or benefits) of blogging. If you think I have missed out some more points, please share it in your comments. I hope this post motivated or inspired you to blog! Happy blogging!

      I made a huge mistake when I quit writing on my blog a year ago. I had about 1,500 daily hits, I started up again after 6 months, but now after writing for another 6 months I have about half of my former following.

      I got burned out and tired of insulting and negative comment. I realized a lot of it was my fault because of the subject matter I chose to write about.

      I now just delete the real vicious comments. It is like you are invited to my house, if you can’t be nice you must leave.
      I agree pretty much with all the points you make. Good post.

      Yep, some affiliates are sure “make a living out of blogging”. With proper targeting, an affiliate ad on a blog can yield considerably better income than Adsense. There are several pitfalls though, and before anyone starts doing it, they should (as you’re pointing out) think up the right strategy, and carefully decide on the tactics to use (with the end user experience in mind).

      Good post, Gloson.

      All of these are of course great reasons to blog. The one that sticks out the most for me is #1 but you really have 2 reasons mixed into #1. It improves your writing skills of course however, since you are going to be reading more blogs at the same time it increases your knowledge. that to me is one of the biggest benefits. Also #6 making friends (networking with other bloggers) is a huge benefit.

        I’d also go with number 6. Although I have never run a blog. I used to do a lot of commenting and built a number of useful contact through this.

        Well, actually, I’ve explained about learning new stuff through blogging at reason #16 and I completely agree that it is a very huge benefit. So I guess I’ve already separated the two points. Thanks for notifying me anyway 😉 .

      I agree with Gerald. Exposing yourself to other people’s blogs will increase your understanding of what works and what doesn’t work. You can then take these ideas back and integrate the best of them into your efforts thereby increasing your skills and of course the quality of the content for your readership.

      Interesting points, most of which apply to me. I would also like to add that blogging is also a good outlet during transitional periods in life – such as moving between countries, moving between schools/companies, moving form the student to the corporate world, or from work to retirement. It is a good way to get tips on how to deal with the “new world”, to express your thoughts and also to gain friends while adjusting to the new circumstances. Good post!

      Blogging indeed has several advantages. When you blog, you make your mind work. You think of ideas, and how to somehow improve it. When you blog, you say what you want to say, what you want others to know. Therefore your blog must have content. When you blog you teach and learn at the same time. You communicate, you reach out. The article made me realize of how far a blog can go.

      Hi Gloson,

      This is an amazing post from an 11 yr old kid -that’s you. Very sensible and informative. I also enjoyed the humor..lol…I followed this link from my friend Jan Geronimo and I’m happy I did.

      In my recent post I have also introduced a new, young blogger – Ryzen who is only 9 yrs. old. She is still very new -barely with 5 short posts but if she would be able to connect with young bloggers like yourself, then she would be motivated to blog more. I hope you could visit her site and encourage her too. Cheers and all the best.

      Hi Gloson, this was actually the first time I visit your site. I was actually amazed how a 12 year old kid can manage to do this. I can also say that the way you share your thought was not obvious a 12 year old kid because mostly, kids at your age are most interested playing games, but you are different. I’m planning to visit you again because you truly caught my interest. Anyway, nice post. I have seen some reasons for about 5 or up to 8 lists only, but you have a nice list of tips, reason and ideas. Very cool!

      Glosson, my man…
      You have no idea how right you are (well, you probably do have an idea :P), especially on the writing skills improvement issue. I’ve been blogging for about a year now, and not only did y writing skills improve, I now actually enjoy written expression (I’m the talkative type…).

      Don’t pay attention to the hater commenters. They will always be there for you to look down upon 🙂

        Hi Dan!

        Thank you very much Dan! Yeah I agree on the haters’ comments. If they are constructive criticism, you can consider it, but if they are insults, just ignore them. 🙂

      Hi Gloson,
      You did a really great job highlighting some of the biggest benefits of blogging. Regardless of your age, location, or interests…blogging always seems beneficial in one way or another. I know many people who blog simply as a stress releaser. A personal outlet for venting frustrations and concerns. For others it’s a public diary to help people understand who they really are. My main reason was to share tips and experiences. It’s hard not to see the many benefits all along the blogging journey.

        Hi Brian,

        Thank you very much. I really appreciate your kind words 🙂

        Stress releaser? I’ve never thought of that! LOL, but that’s a nice reason. Not only you can release your stress but also you can make new friends and build your name on the internet, which makes you happier 😛 . Yup, one of my main reasons is to share interesting stuff 🙂 .

        Happy Blogging!
        Gloson

    46. I’ll give you another reason…

      As a photographer a blog gives you a platform to display your work and at the same time give a bit of written info about how and why the photographs turned out the way they did.

      This gives your reader a nice bit of insight into your work…and hopefully convinces them to hire you st some stage as well.

      Very inspiring post Gloson. I enjoyed reading your post here and your poem. You open the door of blogging to the kids. Kids must not just use computer for gaming but even more useful way.

      Thank you google for driving me here in your site.

      { This is Luana @ n0t.info here, but plugging in my personal blog URL this time ^-^ Still me though }

      I loved this post. Most of your reasons to blog are mine too, and I agree with the remainder of the list. Blogging is a blessing, it enhances creativity and makes you feel closer to the rest of the world. I wish I had a chance to blog when I was 12-13 too; too bad there were no personal computers around on 1996. I used to have fun on my writing machine though, writing down short stories and novels. 🙂 I enjoyed keeping paper diaries too. Blogging is all that and much more.

      You know, Gloson… I have to come to your blog more often. ^_^

      So many reasons to blog… sometimes it’s only tough making the right time for all the writing. I’ve gotten slower and slower at blogging since I had my youngest, but getting back on track there.

      Thank you for being so inspirational to me! ^_^

      I’m impressed by your talent. And, honestly, most of the kids I know wouldn’t care enough to create something like this for themselves. It truly is fantastic! I read your recent blog about the spike in traffi and then browsed around a little bit. I know of one 12 year old in particular who has been mentioning he would like to start a blog. Seeing yours might be good inspiration for him.

      Making money should never be a reason why to start blogging. It’s just a small benefit for those passionate (and talented) enough to sustain a good rhythm of quality posting (although quality posts alone don’t necessarily guarantee that you’ll get enough traffic to monetize).

      Cheers !

      Great post Gloson. I think the my favorite part about blogging is the ability to express yourself. Most people are really receptive especially when you are being genuine. We all love people that are being true and it really resonates. If it weren’t for blogging I do not know what I would do for fun.

      Greetings Gloson, I don’t know if English is your first language but your grammar puts many of my countrymen to shame (let alone adults).

      To your post – all of the reasons you listed there I agree with: I have what would be termed as a non commerical blog that is very basic (Blogger) and is really more of a diary than anything else. You seem to have quite a few posts directed at bloggers like me that are doing it for fun or have just started out, so pleased to meet you! And I look forward to reading more on another day.

      Very impressive post Gloson! In my case, I blog to express myself. Its kind of a releasing your thoughts and opinions on everything. I can say what I want to say, and what I want others to know.

      Personally for me I blog to make money. I am a Realtor and my blogs are very well indexed because of the quality of the content combined with my knowledge of SEO. While other Realtors in my area are struggling I have remained very busy. This is due to all of my blogs and websites.

      Hi Gloson,

      It is impressive to see someone so young and talented. But I guess it is more than that, as indicated by your many reasons to blog up above. Great list for other people to think through!
