Being a blogger has many benefits, from opening the doors to potential press opportunities to being able to earn a side income and potentially become full time. Although blogging takes up a lot of time if you are blogging about a passion it is enjoyable and something that you will want to do every day. Especially as your viewers increase and more people want to read about the subject you are blogging about. No matter your current career whether that be a business that sells fuel tanks, to being a sports teacher, you can start a blog on anything on the side. Below are four benefits of becoming a blogger.
The more viewers you have on your blog, the more income you are likely to earn. As your viewership increases, brands will want to know more about you and see if there is a way for them to work with you, to tap into your readers. These brands will often be in a similar area as the subject of your blog so the fit will be perfect. As with anything, running a blog takes time so don’t expect a jump in income straight away, the process is slow but worth it in the long run.
Sharing Your Knowledge With Others
One of the most rewarding things about running a blog is knowing that others are interested in what you are writing about, and want to come back and read more. Sharing your knowledge is a powerful thing and one that is extremely rewarding when you see your articles being shared across social media. If you write about something you are passionate about you will find that it is a lot easier to come up with article ideas and you have more motivation to consistently post, instead of the odd day.
Once you have been running a blog for a few years, your viewership may be big enough that you earn enough money to go full time. It may be that you are not interested in this, but for some, a career change is what they were looking for and blogging became the job they changed into. Blogging can open the door so many different careers from a fashion influencer to a Youtuber to journalism. There are many opportunities that can come from running a blog but the most important thing to remember is that everything takes time, nothing happens overnight.
Make A Difference
Some blogs are purely there to make a difference to someone’s life, which is amazing. Mental health blogs, money blogs, charity blogs, and many others, they are all there to help people. They are there to raise awareness and support people through a hard time that they are going through. If you are starting a blog to help others it can be extremely rewarding and allow you to do your bit to help a community. Sometimes it’s not about the money are going full time, it’s all about making a difference and helping people.
