The Best Things About Blogging

There are so many posts online talking about the pitfalls and dark side of blogging right now. Of course, these are not things we should ignore. While like everything else, it's not all sunshine and rainbows, it's not all terrible either. Here are some of the positive benefits of blogging.

You can talk about important issues
One of the most significant advantages of blogging is having a platform that allows you to talk about important issues that really matter to you. This is important in modern society because the way we get information about issues has really changed with the vast majority of people getting a most their news and our information online. Therefore being part of this and by supplying accurate information and insightful opinions on a platform inundated with false news has a great significance. In fact, by doing so, you can actually play a part in helping to make a real positive difference in the world.

You can make some money
Another fantastic benefit of blogging is they you can actually get paid to do it. Yes, that's right, you can reach your very own little corner of the internet and use that as a source of income. Now, not everyone can make megabucks and give up their day job immediately. However through sponsorships, paid content, affiliate links and advertising, you can still bring in a significant amount from your blog.

You get to work with and meet some fantastic people
One of the best things about starting a blog is all of the wonderful people that you get to meet, speak with and collaborate with. In fact, the blogosphere is quite a unique community that can also be a fantastic source of support and encouragement when things get tough as well. Of course, you won't see eye to eye with everyone, and that is OK. However, you are likely to find people that see the world in a very similar way to you, and that have a real passion for the same things that you do. Something that makes them a great choice to collaborate with, while simultaneously expanding your audience.

You get to have an awesome experience and then talk about them online
Facebook and other social media platforms are OK, but blogging is where it's at! Yes, you can post a photo or two of the fun experiences you are having on social media. However, if you really want to go into in-depth detail, and provide a helpful, balanced and nuanced opinion on the places you're visiting, writing a blog post is the way to go.

If all of this sounds good to you, it may be worthwhile for you to consider starting a blog. And if you are already rocking one, keep on blogging! Even if you are in a bit of a lull at the moment. It really is all worth it in the end.
