Importance of Blogging for Individual (Personal)

In one of the previous post, we talked about the reason why Companies and Businesses should take blogging as a major part of their business process.

Create a Business

Blogging has changed over the years into becoming another way through which a business can come into existence all from the imagination of an individual or group of people. A typical example is iTheme, which focuses on creating themes and plugins for WordPress users and also resourceful materials in WordPress. Evanto Market too is another business model which is also selling CMS tools (Plugins, Themes, Templates, Module etc.)

Find New Job

Blogging is another way through which you can leverage on to find the new job, especially for magazines and journal companies. It’s a way to show the world your resumé of what you are capable of. Be it Photography, Content Writing and Marketing, Graphics and infographics, even video production and illustration etc. Blogging is wide to all spheres of career.

Get More Clients

Blogging also gives you the opportunity to showcase your portfolio for the world to see which can, in turn, get you, new clients. You will agree that getting new client can be a headache, Why? Because they don’t trust you…you need to have a track record of the successful project done by you, and if you have, hurray…blogging gives you the opportunity to show your potential client what you are capable of doing what you’ve done in the past. Major web design firms even have a portfolio page and a typical example is CMSFolks (us)

Build New Skills

Do you want to build more skills to add to the one you already have, then trust us, blogging has a way to add more skills to your archive of talents. A lot of people think blogging is just about writing, that’s a lie. And if blogging is just about writing, kindly tell them writing too is a skill that’s not a food for the lazy. But blogging is more than writing, you must have the art of communication in order to pass out your idea to your readers. With blogging, you will be exposed to other aspects. Every successful blog is a product of several things put in place. From security to SEO, blogging is more than what you thought. Ask every blogger both successful one and yet to be successful, they will tell you the ocean of energy they put into it.

Improve Personal Attitude

Ask a new or old blogger what makes a successful blog, and you will hear are tons of “MUST DO” but the common thing you will always find out about all that they will say it “TIME”. It takes time to build a successful blog. In fact, the more time you give to your blog, the more successful your blog has the potential to become. As Donal Trump and Robert Kiyosaki will say in their book titled “MIDAS TOUCH” the number one point is “STRENGTH OF CHARACTER” you easily have this through the bowels of TIME. Also, to have a successful blog, you must be addicted to reading which is another self-improvement method.

Become a Better Writer

If you are not used to traditional writing, then you will agree that writing is one of the most difficult things to do, especially when you are writing fresh content. And again, most people find it easy to do other kinds of stuff on the PC like a Video game, Surfing the internet, Watch home videos either on YouTube or downloaded on their computer, but when it comes to writing…you will definitely agree that writing is not just difficult but also time-consuming. But the moment you put on the challenge, roll your sleeve, then you can be rest assure that little by little, you will be a better writer.

Become an Online Published Author

Blogging gives you the opportunity to be a published author digitally at little or no cost depending on the platform you choose. To publish a traditional book, you will need to have some extra bucks available for spending, yet you will need to convince quite a lot of individuals before you can make a sale, but blogging takes away all of this giving you a better wide range of audience to target either through social media or search engine. The type of audience you get via the internet you can never compare to the traditional audience you get through library or bookstore.

Write about New Ideas

The primary purpose of a blog is to write about new ideas flooding your thoughts and mind. Blogging gives you a way to spread your opinions to the world. Be it politics, religion, tribe. Region. Career, relationship…with blogging, you have all it takes to reach the whole wide world about your awesome ideas

Get immediate feedback

The more you write, the better you become at it. Most professional bloggers write on a regular basis and therefore analyze and proofread their writing constantly. You may even get feedback from readers to help you become a better writer.

An author has to wait months between finishing his/her book and reading the reviews, but bloggers get to read their readers’ comments the same day they click ‘publish’.

This makes blogging a great way to get feedback on an idea that you want to develop further. Having an outside perspective and a little bit of constructive criticism is invaluable.

Learn More About People

Bloggers spend most of their time sharing their ideas and insights with their readers. But if you listen, you’ll find that your readers share a lot with you too.

I learn a lot about the readers on Income Diary from your comments, your tweets, and your posts on the forums. That information helps me to know what type of posts to write and I know that it also helps Michael determine what products to develop that will help his readers the most.

Gain Influence and Authority

What’s the best way to change the world? You could become a politician, activist, or volunteer.

Or you could become a blogger. A successful blogger gains a wide audience of people who trust and respect them.

Establish Yourself as an Expert in Your Field

Anybody can start a blog on any subject they like. So, you don’t get a lot of respect just for saying, “I have a website about that.”

But over time, as you write more posts and share more of your expertise, your website will change from ‘just another blog’ into a powerful demonstration of your knowledge in a field. When somebody visits your site and sees the insights you’ve shared on a subject, along with the community of people who respect and seek that insight, it will be clear that you’re genuinely an expert in the field.

Being an expert is a good thing. You may get consideration for careers, awards, or consulting opportunities.

Build a Network

Starting a blog is a guaranteed way to expand your network. First of all, valuable and interesting blog posts attract readers who will then comment on your site and send you personal messages through your contact page. Many of your readers will be asking for help, but others will be looking to help you. A blog is also a good platform for reaching out to others. Many of the first posts on Income Diary were interviews with experts in the ‘make money online’ community. With every interview, Michael gained a personal relationship with an influential person.

Help Others

Every good blog helps its readers. Income Diary does this by offering free information about how to make money online. Other blogs help people lose weight, raise their kids, and come to terms with the life-threatening disease. Yet others mobilize groups of people to take action and raise money for important causes. The power of a blog to educate, inspire, and bring like-minded people together makes blogging a great way to help people.

Build Trust Online

Trust is a rare and valuable commodity online. You can’t buy trust. It has to be earned by demonstrating your commitment to your readers, time and time again. As it turns out, that’s exactly what good bloggers do by regularly posting valuable, honest articles on their blogs. The more people whose trust you’ve earned, the easier it will be to accomplish your goals online.
