Seven months ago I wrote something about me writing blog entries – not as consistent as other moms out there, and my posts are not as well written as other blog sites that I follow. Nonetheless, I still am writing from time to time because it is my form of self-expression and I want to share some thoughts to those people who have time to read what I wrote (Thanks and hugs!)
Initially, blogging involved a personal web log, in which a person would journal about their day. From “web log” came the term “blog.” As a teen, I kept a diary about my thoughts and experiences in life and that is another reason why I’ve decided to have my own blog.
So why do people blog?
What’s on and what’s up?
If you’re maintaining a blog, a fresh post is a need. What’s good about this is since it is a personal blog there’s always something happening and a blog is a perfect way to voice ideas and feelings. Through blogging, people became connected to the same people sharing the same thoughts and passion. Ever since I became a mom, I followed different mommy bloggers all over the world and from time to time, sharing motherhood/parenting ideas is an advantage for me too.
Writing skills improvements.
Organizing your thoughts. Wide vocabulary. Proofreading. The more you write the better you will be. Sometimes, readers will even share some tips and tricks on how to improve your entries and it helps.
Although I write for personal reasons, a blog can also mean business. There are lots of professional bloggers who are earning a good amount of money from creating reviews and featuring a certain product that they were able to try. Like the quotation says, “Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life.”
Blogging is community building and networking is one reason people engage in it. Whether you are a mompreneur or blogging to market your business, building relationships will facilitate your blog’s growth. Although it may sound like everything is rainbows and butterflies in the blogging world there’s still a downside to it depending on what kind of blog you have. Building a niche online meant that you’re opening up yourself to strangers who share the same wavelength that you got. It’s building an online hood. Blogging equates to marketing. Marketing is a business. Business means money. Earning money through writing blogs is time-consuming with little payoff in the beginning. It takes time to build up a readership and momentum but trust me if you focused on it eventually you’ll get there and that is if you want your blog to be a money-making business.
For moms like me, who are just writing for expression and outlet of emotions we are still gaining from our posts don’t we? :) Blogging is a tool that we can utilize for our own benefit.
