Have you ever been asked why do you blog? Or why do you enjoy blogging so much? When I first started thinking about blogging and when I first started writing on my blog, I did it because I love writing. As I have continued to blog I have found more reasons why I love blogging.
Blogging has become a big part of my life and a great creative outlet for me. The more I blog, work with brands and network with people, the more I learn about myself and the blogosphere.
I am sharing 5 popular reasons I have seen as to why bloggers love blogging. See if you can relate to any of these.
#1 The opportunity to be creative
I have always loved being creative with colouring, drawing and crafting. So blogging gives me that creative outlet, whether its the writing, designing and taking photographs. I love taking photographs and sharing them.
#2 Helping others by their writing
There are some bloggers who’s niche is advocating for mental health, nutrition or sport. Posting this information can really help others. I have had a few people reach out to me and tell me the post I shared help them. It is a great feeling to know people are not only enjoying your writing but it is having a positive impact on their lives. Has someone reached out to you before after you shared a post?
#3 Working with brands they love
A huge benefit of blogging is working with brands you have loved for years and building those pr contacts. I love writing and being able to represent brands I have loved and enjoy using is such a wonderful thing. I have been fortunate enough to work with some great brands, it has helped me build my confidence and learned a lot about PR and business. One post I really proud of is working with Say Nice Things Stationery.
#4 Making new friends online
Being able to connect with other like minded people is a great perk of blogging. It can be such a supportive community. I have made some great friends through my blog and they are kind and supportive.
#5 Learning new skills
Setting up a blog there is technical information to learn as well as SEO and analytics. When working with brands for example, I have learned a lot more about pitching, contracts and invoices. I am sure I still have so much to learn and I am excited for me and my blog to grow.
Blogging is growing as a profession as a hobby. With so much creative content out there and so many talented writers. These are just a few reasons I have learned about why bloggers love blogging and why I love it so much.
