5 Reasons You Should Write A Blog Post

There are myriad reasons why you should write a blog post. Consider this: At any time of the day I have so many thoughts rolling around in my head that if I didn’t stop and capture them, they would disappear like a wisp of smoke. I do make a practice to capture them all in my Evernote app. When I go back and look at them later, they may be viable or they may leave me scratching my head as to why I even wrote them down.

Here, though are my reasons why you should get your thoughts out of your head and into a blog post.

5 Reasons You Should Write A Blog Post

Inspire Someone

You just never know if what you write will inspire someone or make a difference in their life. You don’t know what your reads are facing and what you write today just might offer them hope or perspective. Your personal struggles and the way in which you face them could be the impetus to pull someone out of a funk and motivate them.

Voice An Opinion

I am very opinionated, but I rarely voice what I really feel in my blog posts. I keep my political views to myself. I am honest about being a Christian, and having a higher spiritual belief, but I don’t want to debate theology with you. If, however, you’re willing to put yourself out there and let the chips fall where they may, your blog is your platform to do just that.

The More You Write, The Better Writer You Will Become

It just makes sense. The more you practice at something, the better you will become. If you have always wanted to write, then begin writing. You should also be an avid reader if you want to be a great writer. Play with words. Have fun with them. Delve into them so you understand their nuances and how to put them into a grammatically correct sentence.

Confront Your Fears

Every day I am scared of something. Breast cancer thoughts rear their heads on a regular basis. I worry about growing my business. Are my children all right? Will Henrietta start limping again? Is it my turn to cook dinner? Etc. Etc. When I sit down to write a blog post I can confront my fears and work them out on the page. Many times when I have written my fears down, I can work through them and find they weren’t nearly as big as I’d originally imagined.

Share Your Experience

You may be experiencing something that can help your reader. If you’re a writer, you may be writing about how to put together an editorial calendar and that could help another writer or a business owner.  Perhaps you’re a dog walker who has come up with an ideal way to walk multiple dogs without having an issue with tangled leashes – share that!

What are your best reasons for writing a blog post? I’d love to hear them! I’d also love to hear the reasons you’re not blogging.
