Running a blog is one of the things in trend these days. But as that may be, it doesn’t mean that everyone knows the benefits of running a blog. You might even find it awkward to find out that most people with blogs hardly know why they have one. While for most of them, it’s just because their new neighbor has one and while for others it’s to keep themselves busy.
If you’re on a tour to find out concrete reasons you should be running a bog, I doubt any of the two reasons above will convince you to do so. While there are many benefits in running a blog, these benefits are far more substantial than those two reasons and I’ll be sharing a few of them with you in this article.
Gives You a Voice
One of the most valuable benefits of running a blog is that it stands as your mouthpiece. Blogging has made many unknown youths to become internet celebrities and bestsellers. If you think becoming a bestselling author is a day’s job, then you definitely won’t appreciate blogging.
Research has shown that ads on blogs and micro-sites are far more converting than on big media and the Super Bowl. This research was actually conducted using an online business that spent millions just to place an ad on the Super Bowl. While that resulted in 90% increase in traffic, there was actually no sale.
Helps You Create Opportunities
You can find boundless opportunities by running a blog. Unemployment is on the rise always and youths are increasingly relying on the government and big companies for employment opportunities, but blogging has been revealed to help youths create jobs for themselves and also create opportunity to work in places only experienced workers are accepted – such as media houses.
With a blog on your side, you don’t have to start trolling or visiting every company you see its job offer before you gain employment. Bloggers are called to come and work for companies – creating opportunity for them to state their financial worth and salary expectations.
Makes You Socialized
Finally on the list, blogging helps you become social. If you’re the socially inept type and you find it a tough job mixing up with people, blogging can equally help you out. Bloggers meet a lot of people and share a lot of things with different people, making them more social and fashionable.
There are many things you need to do on a blog that will quickly help you become social and shape your experience in public speaking. For example, the blogging world expo is a gathering of professional bloggers who share their experiences and thoughts with each other. Going to occasions similar to this will definitely help you amass a lot of knowledge about the open world.
Blogging is a good thing and can help you put your talent to a profitable use. By running a blog, you can also create an income opportunity for you and those that depend on you.
