Thinking About Starting A Personal Blog? Here Are Five Reasons Why You Should!

Thinking About Starting A Personal Blog? Here Are Five Reasons Why You Should!
Many people ask me why I like blogging so much and if they themselves should start a personal blog. I definitely love blogging, and for that reason it is really easy for me to convince them why personal blogs are such a great addition to a person's life. Here are five reasons off the top of my head of why everyone should start a personal blog.

First: Blogging is a great way to express yourself. It gives you a chance to put your thoughts out into the universe about your life, about things going on around you, as well as express your opinions. The fun part of it is that it is out there in internet space for others to read including friends, family, and even strangers! There's something quite romantic about that.

Second: Having the opportunity and platform to write will greatly improve your communication and writing skills. As it is your personal blog, you can write about whatever you choose. You can even use your blog to practice various essay formats such as the five paragraph persuasive essay or the personal narrative essay. Or simply use your blog to write about a variety of topics to improve not just your communication skills but to also widen the topics you can communicate about. That's a great addition to your skillset!

Third: When you start writing blog posts, you will find not only your communication skills improving but also your critical thinking skills. When you think about it, you cannot always just sit and write (well, maybe not just yet). It takes some thought to put together a blog post or article and have it mean something and make sense. And just imagine the workout your brain gets when you choose to write about a variety of topics! Blogging definitely is great exercise for the brain.

Fourth: Blogging can actually bring the world closer. Sure some people talk about how with email and the internet people don't call or write letters anymore, but with such a personal platform out there in the world you would be surprised at how blogging can actually bring people closer to you. It gives people a chance to hear from you in a one-way fashion and consider your viewpoints.

Fifth: in many ways, starting a blog can also help you meet new people. Remember, virtually anybody with access to the Internet can view your blog. Therefore, there is a reasonable chance you might get an opportunity to interact with some people whom you have never really met before.

And there you have it: five reasons to start a personal blog right off the top of my head. There are many more reasons, and as you develop your blog you will find those. Blogging certainly has enriched my life and I hope you find it enriches yours as well. So have fun starting a personal blog!
