Back in the day, for you to be able to express yourself online, you’d have to go to social
media to do so. The problem there is that not a lot of people (at least, at that time) have
social media accounts so you are vastly limiting your potential audience.
Blogging has created a platform for many people to express their views and opinions
about certain topics. This is why creating a blog right now makes sense, especially in
the new year.
In today’s article, I will go over some of the good reasons why you should start creating
your own blog this year. And oh, it is also vital that you get a great web hosting provider
in case you go ahead and create your own blog.
A Means to Gain Profit
Blogging can actually be a great means for you to gain some profit. Without bragging, I’ve actually earned more than $3 million using this platform- either directly or indirectly.
There are so many ways to monetize your blog. One of the first things that I did was to
use Google Adsense. This allowed me to earn millions through ad revenue but do keep
in mind that your mileage here will vary.
Another thing that I’ve done is to engage in affiliate marketing. One of my main affiliates
is Amazon as it is the largest online retailer on the planet, but there are also others
worth considering as well.
My point being, if you have a blog and you create high-quality content, you can
definitely monetize your blog so that you can gain some money from doing the thing that
you love the most- blogging.
One of the major benefits of having your own blog is that you now have a platform
where you can express your thoughts, views, and opinions to a much wider audience.
I’ve known a lot of people who have made themselves so much better by expressing
themselves through writing and creating content.
Keep in mind that blogging is a process. Unless you are an exceptional writer right off
the bat, you will have to improve the way you do things in order for you to be successful
in this medium for a long time.
My advice for you is to have the discipline to push through, especially when you feel like
quitting; always learn new things and improve the way you convey your thoughts.
Make New Relationships
When you establish your online presence and you get good at it, Google and other
people will start to take notice. By ‘Google’, I meant that its search engine will find you in
a much faster way since you are climbing up the ranks.
Blogging is a great opportunity for you to make new relationships. As you improve your
reputation, more and more people will start messaging you for collaborations, tips, and
I don’t know about you, but I derive so much pleasure in being able to help other people
