Yet another long overdue blog meme I’ve been tagged on. After a week of mugging (supposedly), I’ve decided to de-stress by blogging! Haha.. guess I just revealed one of the reasons why I blog.
This time round, Ive been tagged by my friend Alex over at his Insights of Self Help & Personal Development Blog. The topic: 5 Reasons Why I Blog.
Honestly, I’ve never given much thought about this. Though in the past, when blogs were fast gaining popularity, I could easily produce 10 reasons why I didn’t blog. I’ve always thought that I sucked at writing, noone would bother to read my blog, my life was too boring.. etc etc..
But now, ever since I’ve started blogging in late last year, I simply can’t stop. (dun be mistaken by the lack of sincerity due to the lack of posts.) I’ve grown to love blogging. in fact, even if noone is reading my blog, I don’t mind! And I will still blog on as I enjoy reading my blog posts personally.
So having to think of the 5 reasons of why I blog shouldn’t be too big a problem. So here goes!
Well, I must admit the reason why I started a blog was for internet marketing purposes. I first got to know of internet marketing after reading Adam Khoo’s Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires back in August last year. Thereafter, researched rather intensively on that topic and got myself really involved and enthusiastic about it.
Coincidentally, blogs were being mentioned by many of the gurus as one of the best traffic generation techniques. In fact, blogs are slowly taking over the normal websites and its not surprising. A blog has its advantages in terms of SEO and the level of interactivity it allows. In terms of layout and structure, its also much easier to manage as compared to a normal website.
Hence, after reading Gobala Krishnan’s Wordpress Adsense System and witnessing the potential of blogging, I decided to start my own blog in a bid to further enhance my internet marketing efforts.
2. Sharing of my Insights, Learnings & Knowledge.
However, after blogging for awhile, I realized that it was this reason that really drives me. I honestly feel a sense of satisfaction at being able to share my insights, learnings and knowledge. Though I certainly not claiming to be an extremely knowledgeable person, but I do take pride at being able to share whatever little knowledge I may seem to have.
And it feels good to know when people enjoy what I’m blogging. Hence, I truly strive to provide the best value to my readers. Most importantly, my blog provides a platform for me to record my learnings as I grow. Hence, its really vital for me personally as well as I get to track my learning process and I’m able to revisit them constantly.
3. Network and make friends
Blogging also allows me to network and make friends. As people from all over the world visit my blog, I get to make friends with them. Though this kind of ‘friendship’ may seem superficial to some, I truly believe that meaningful friendships can indeed be forged in this manner. The high level of interaction of blogs also helps in this aspect.
I sincerely hope to make more friends through blogging and also reading other blogs. I feel its a great platform for me to know people of similar interests. So feel free to email me or leave a comment somewhere!
As blogging also kinda displays one’s character through his/her thoughts, it also allow people to understand one another better. Hence, its also able to strengthen friendships due to this increased understanding.
4. Stimulates my mind and encourages thinking
Whenever I sit down and decide on what to blog, it forces my mind to really think and reflect on various issues. As I do not wish to be someone who simply replicates others’ content (which many bloggers do), I try to be as opinionated as possible.
Hence, this truly stimulates my brain and encourages thinking on my part. And whenever there are comments and opinons raised by readers, it also exposes my mind to new & fresh perspectives and adds a whole new dimension to my thinking.
Blogging also enables me to more effectively communicate my thoughts which can be quite challenging at times.
5. I simply love it. And I’m proud to be a blogger!
Yes simple as that! I actually find huge enjoyment in blogging, likewise for this post. Though I’ve not been blogging often, I will definitely do so after my exams! Which ends on 28th April. Can’t wait!
So for those of you who do not own a blog or have not been updating often, start blogging now! Just sit down and start typing. Just let your thoughts flow. It can be addictive and you might get carried away sometimes. But the key thing is you’ve got to learn to enjoy it - and this applies to everything you do!
Alright. That’s all for now.
What are your reasons? Passing it on to my friends…
1. Desmond (alex tagged you too!)
4. And anyone else who’s reading my blog. Just leave a link to this post to let me know you’ve been tagged!
God bless and have a great weekend while I continue mugging!
