Here’s why you should blog regularly
You may find lots to like if you decide to blog regularly. To understand why, I’d like to first share some insights into how I first began blogging.
Let’s get real — creating Self-Employable was never my goal. When I started my writing career, I jumped from job to job, searching for the perfect opportunity. But I wasn’t happy — and that’s ok. Because once I accepted the circumstances for what they were, I was able to move toward a better life.
Blogging is a HUGE part of my life, and I’ve found that writing for Self-Employable makes me feel energized. I’ve learned a lot as a self-employed writer, editor, copywriter, reporter and blogger, and I want to share my knowledge with others. In doing so, my goal is to help you survive — and thrive — in self-employment.
Ultimately, there are lots of statistics that highlight the benefits of blogging from a professional standpoint. What I want to focus on right now, however, are the personal benefits of blogging, which include:
1. You can show people the true you.
It’s terrifying to put yourself out there. There is no telling how people will respond when you share your personal feelings and thoughts, and there is always the risk of criticism and insults. With a blog, you can share as much or as little as you’d like about yourself. And if you feel comfortable with it, you can share the true you.
2. You can reduce stress.
Personally, I find that writing for Self-Employable is relaxing. I feel like much of my work day is spent taking care of my son or working with clients; as much as I enjoy these activities, they can be stressful at times. So, if you enjoy writing, set up a free blog on WordPress or Blogger. It only takes a few minutes to create a blog, and once you start blogging, you may find that it helps you reduce stress.
3. You can boost your confidence.
Anxiety, stress and depression are problems for millions of people globally. If you’re self-employed, these problems can make it tough to work and damage your self-confidence. Thanks to blogging, you can meet like-minded individuals who believe in what you write and want to hear what you have to say. And in the long run, your blog can help you become more confident than ever before.
Finally, remember this: a blog is whatever you make it. If you publish blog posts regularly, you can make your blog something remarkable. 🙂
