In short, blogging can influence consumers in their buying decisions. Having a blog that builds your authority about your business will influence your target market to entertain what you have to offer.

“The idea is not to live forever, but to create something that will.” -Andy Warhol. As you blog, your content stays in the space forever and can be read by generations even centuries after your death. No one needs to be physically present in order to live forever, you can build a legacy or name based on the number of people you were able to help or influence, if not art or science, you can start with blogging.

I, myself, have started from scratch. I looked for an online course that would teach me how to get started the right way and learn not only the basics but more importantly, can let me stand on my own in the future. Learn more by clicking the below button.

 

Have You Found Ways To Use Your Time Efficiently?

All great things take time to build. It’s better to use your time now and start doing something rather than letting days pass Should I Write Or Notthinking what to do without actually getting started on anything. You don’t have to be an expert to get started. All experts were once a beginner. What’s important is you’ve already taken a step. As you move forward, you will be amazed at getting to know a better version of you growing inside and out.

 

Is it for me?

If your primary reason for blogging is to make money NOW, then you won’t get it from getting started now. You will have to seek for other online opportunities that pay right away such as surveys, tasks completion, ad clicking, among others. Just make sure that time spent is worth the pennies earned.

However, since tapping and attracting audience take time, the best time to get started blogging is always right NOW, and then, you can monetize it later.

  4. I wanted to start a blog years ago but didn’t because I didn’t know how to get started or even if my voice would be heard. I could have used an article like this back then. Anyone who puts the time in to blog can be successful if they keep at it. Thats what is so great about it.

  5. I find that my primary reason for writing is sharing my knowledge and expertise with other people out there looking to improve themselves. All of these points hit the nail on the head when it comes to writing good content and educating the world. Not many people understand that you can become an affiliate marketer and start your own website essentially with zero knowledge.

    Thanks for the getting started link, I can’t wait to see what the platform you use has to offer.
    Great article, keep up the good work as I thoroughly enjoy reading.

    1. That’s true Philip. It’s amazing how technology has advanced not only our way of living but also the way we express ourselves and relate to each other. At the same time, use this to earn extra cash if not for a living.

  7. This is something I wish I had seen years ago. I can remember a time before the internet or at least before it hit the mainstream. I can remember hearing the blog and thinking who wants to hear what I have to say.
    Now, I am trying to play catch-up. I use the site you recommend in your article and have to say I have not found a better community or network of people. I have looked at many opportunities to make money on the internet and found that no matter what you get involved in it takes time to make any real money. You must put in the work. Blogging may take more time to see returns but in the end you are building a real business.

    1. Couldn’t have said it any better Corey. But that’s the beauty of life, we learn from the past. What matters is we never stop. Good luck on your future endeavors and cheers for more blessings and success!

  8. Thanks for sharing a list of good reasons why taking up blogging can be beneficial. You really came up with a few thoughts that did not cross my mind in the past. Thanks for sharing a great post and all the best to you on your blogging experience.
    Cheers 🙂

  10. Hey this site can really help someone decide not only to blog but get a purpose. Your step by step walk leaves nothing out. You will have success for sure!

  11. Yes, Finally a blog post about Blogging the right way! Blogging is not only fun it makes me money from my efforts. The truest fact mentioned in your post. Is that blogging if done properly will boost your authority in your niche. making you that more popular in that niches community. Nice Post on Blogging

  12. Thanks for sharing the benefits of blogging. I am just getting into it myself and I love speaking my mind being creative. I love making content that will be here for years to come.All the best

  13. I started writing blog posts about a year ago now, specifically targeting a narrow niche to which I have an interest in. My aim was to eventually join a few affiliate marketing companies to accomplish earning commissions through affiliate links which I have recently done. Okay, these are early days but I have slowly started to earn money through conversions however my aim like you suggest is to replace my current income through this affiliate marketing venture.

    I was quite shy about blogging in the beginning, however, the role merely regards placing your own spin on things and being helpful to visitors. My best advice for anyone wishing to make money online this way is not to try and sell anything, people hate being sold to – just provide honest & helpful information.
    How long have you been blogging? You’ve written this post like a seasoned blogger – Well done!
    Simon.

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Simon, I started blogging just recently. However, I love reading, speaking my mind, and writing journals. I may have subconsciously pick up how words should be put together in writing through reading, not to mention, bloggers always do research as well. I agree with you, people hate being sold to. Thank you for sharing your experience and advice. I’m on the process of learning when it comes to monetizing blogs. But what’s important now is, I’m enjoying the process, especially blogging itself. More success to you.

  14. There are so many great reasons to start a blog and you broke them down nicely. I just love writing about things I am passionate about and helping to educate others in the process. It puts a smile on my face when a reader that shares my interests comments on my post with the same level of enthusiasm as I have. It’s just great to connect with people that have similar interests. It’s just a bonus that you can also build a business around what you truly love. I will keep on blogging!

    1. I agree with you, Tabitha, I feel great too when someone leaves a comment and I can connect with them. It’s just so amazing to know other people’s perspectives on things you enjoy talking about. Same here, I will keep on blogging no matter what. All the best to you.

  15. I started keeping a diary of things I was doing, and decided to blog about them. It should be easy enough I am writing about it anyway.

    But not so easy you need to make your content interesting (as yours is), but my posts were boring even to me, so I stopped and decided to blog about something I am interested in instead.

    Keep up the good work

    1. Hi Bill, we learn in two ways: Our own mistakes and others’. Life is a set of trial and error. So long as you’re not giving up, and continue doing it until you’re satisfied with your result, then you’re already a winner. I also have moved from relationship to positivity and mindset blogs. Just like you, I now am more comfortable blogging because this is what I’m really interested in. So just keep going, keep making mistakes and trying things, you’ll get it soon or late. Thank you for the kind words. Blessings to you!
