Do you ever read all these lifestyle, fashion, parenting blogs and think it’s something you could never do? I hear ya! I felt the exact same way at one time! In fact, I still do at times! But you have a unique story to share or a talent to display! Are bloggers wanted? Yes! Are they needed? Definitely!
Bloggers Wanted – Benefits of Starting a Blog
I would see all these incredible bloggers and think “Wow, I just don’t think I have the talent for it like they do!”
Or maybe you think blogging is just a waste of time! Maybe you think your story has no value and no one wants to read what you have to share!
Or maybe when you think of blogging, the images you dream up are probably similar to a teenager writing in a diary or someone writing some sort of family newsletter.
The reality, however, is that blogging is an incredibly dynamic hobby/business, that can yield tremendous benefits (and income) for both your personal and your work life.
Of course, blogging can even become a full-time career path in and of itself!
Here are just a few of the ways in which blogging can change your life, your business or your ministry!
Bloggers Wanted – Developing Your Brand
When it comes to your professional life, the “brand” that you cultivate for yourself is so important!
You want people to easily identify you, your product, business or service!
Blogging gives you a platform with which you can address topics important to your niche market for your business, engage with your audience, share your know-how, and do what you can in order to craft your brand via your own words.
Bloggers want to be identified as a subject matter expert! You can be that go-to person for problem solving! Customers want a business that can help them solve a problem or meet a need! Identifying your avatar (your ideal audience) can help you meet those needs!
You can attract more people to your business when you publish articles that answer questions or meet needs they might have.
For example, if I am looking online for information about curb appeal and you have a landscaping company with a blog that has great articles about curb appeal, you have met my need for information. So next time I need to hire a landscaper, guess who is going to come to mind first because you have established yourself as a subject matter expert? You go from meeting my need for information to meeting my need for services.
Benefits of Starting a Personal Blog
One of the major benefits of blogging as it relates strictly to your personal life is it enables you to share your experiences with others who may be going through the same things. At the same time, you can find support and camaraderie with people who have their own experiences to share as they engage with your posts.
Perhaps you’ve had some ups and downs in your personal fitness journey, and you aren’t really sure of what’s gone wrong. So you decide to write a blog post sharing your struggle and mulling over your experiences. It is a great way to explore and find your niche, while sharing aspects from various parts of life!
Blogging also allows your audience to comment on your posts and maybe share some wisdom with you when they have gone through similar struggles or had similar experiences.
Blogging can be a great tool for consolidating your thoughts and discovering more about people and yourself!
Creating a Sense of Community
Say what you like, but we are social creatures, and we basically want to participate in groups that reflect our interests.
These days, some of the biggest platforms for discussion exist on the internet and bloggers wanted to take advantage of those platforms and use them to connect with people!
Blogging on a topic that interests you can, therefore, be an effective way of exploring those interests, joining in with a wider discussion, and connecting with others who are engaged with the same topics.
Many times people are isolated for one reason or another and don’t have a community around them they can connect to. Christian blogs, parenting blogs, women’s blogs, etc., can provide that community for them!
Blogging breaks down walls and bridges the miles to help bring people together! That, to me, is the most important and most compelling reason to start a lifestyle blogging journey! Are bloggers wanted? Oh yes! So why not start writing and share your experiences, talents, vision with others?
