8 Reasons To Love Blogging

Wondering If You Should Start A Blog? Here’s Why I Love Blogging!

You’re always on my mind. Sometimes I forget to eat because I’m so wrapped up in you. And I often choose you, over Netflix. No, I’m not talking about my husband (though I’m head over heels for him too). I am talking about my blog! Maybe it sounds silly, but I love blogging. Like really, really love blogging!

Most nights I stay up way past my bedtime, creating graphics, reading other blogs and working on my website! It’s the first thing I check when I wake up, looking up my stats, comments, emails, etc and the last thing I look at before I go to sleep. So why am I so obsessed?

I started this blog last year as a way to help teach others about content creation and marketing, but I never expected that I would get so much out of it! So what do I love so much about blogging that I’m willing to give up binge TV and sleep? Here are 8 reasons I love blogging!

Reasons To Love Blogging!

It’s given me a sense of pride. Not that I don’t have a lot of other things to be proud of, but my blog is something I created all on my own. With next to no web design experience. And it’s really grown well beyond what I ever imagined! I’m immensely proud and fiercely protective of it! That’s why I (still) haven’t shared it with my friends or family (besides my husband). It’s my baby and I protect it as such. If someone so much as whispers a bad word about my blog, I would be crushed!

I get to be super creative. I have a creative side that needs to be expressed or I feel like I’m a rut! Blogging allows me to be creative on many levels from web design, to graphics, photography and of course- writing! You definitely get your creative fix!

I’ve learned so much.I love to learn and think it should be a lifetime thing. Never stop learning because learning is growth! I have learned a lot in school, but nothing compares to action! Blogging has taught me so many skills, like how to build a website from the ground up, how to market on social media, branding, logo design, networking, blog writing and so much more! Most importantly, I’ve learned that I can create a successful blog. And that is something I would have never imagined 5 years ago!

The blogging community is amazing! I love the blogging community. I wasn’t expecting this. There are a ton of bloggers out there who are supportive and helpful! And there are many that have become fast (virtual) friends! I think this is one of my favourite parts about blogging.

I get free stuff! I’ve been lucky enough to get free beauty and blogging products to review and try out. I always love trying new things and free is always awesome!

I get paid. Making money doing something I love so much is just the sweetest icing on the cake! I make money through advertising, paid sponsored posts, and affiliate sales. I’m getting better and better at this as I go along and am thankful for every dollar I make.

I get to help others. This is why I created the blog! To help teach others what I’ve learned as a writer, publisher and marketer. It feels good to help others and nothing beats an email or comment from a reader saying they love your content! This is what it’s all about! So keep them coming!

I’ve found my passion. Before blogging I was in a rut. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with myself. I was a writer in my 20s but took a few years off and never really thought about it. But once I started writing again, something happened and I couldn’t stop! I guess that’s how you know you found what you’re meant to do! Blogging is my thing. Without it, something’s missing!
