Creating your own blog and making it grow is very simple and quite fascinating! It can be one of the greatest opportunities for anyone with an open mind, Blogging has so many benefits! My goal for this article is to convince you that you need to create your own blog! I’ll also later explain how simple it is, not to mention: It’s also free! 😉
Benefits of Having your own blog
1. You Learn By Blogging!
According to Work-Learning Research, Inc. (2006) studies reveal convincing evidence that two weeks after reading something, people are only likely to remember 10% of what they read! On the bright side, these studies indicate that people are generally apt to remember: 90% of the material in which they SAY and DO; and 70% of what they SAY . So, in that case, you can read something and tell someone else about it to remember it better, or study the material, give a presentation, or you can write about it in your Blog to aide your memory! Writing something in your Blog is synonymous teaching, or speaking. If you ever want to know something, you can have the chance to read about it, then blog about it to retain your memory and live up to your words for a life changing experience!
Also, when you start a blog yourself, other blogs’ interface seem more familiar and simple because you have a better understanding of how the content is normally structured.
2. Blogging is the New Way to Have a Journal!
It used to be really popular to have a journal or a diary to express your thoughts and opinions. Today it is much more exciting because you can have your own page online for publicizing your thoughts and opinions on the web for international access!
3. Blogging is Way Beyond Easy!
WordPress.com might seem a tad bit intimidating when first attempted; however, once you set up your page and understand the interface, it is so easy to write posts and pages. You can be on any computer with internet to update/edit your pages as easy as writing a Microsoft Word document!
4. A Mindful of Opportunities!
Blogging gives you the sense of hope and opportunity. How far can you go with it? Some people blog just for fun, other’s blog for money! You also can have the chance to help others out by sharing your thoughts and teaching others what you know. Blogging gives you a chance to have something to look forward to, as well as a sense of self-importance.
5. It’s Free!
WordPress.com does not charge for having a blog…no start up fees, no hidden surprises, and no need to understand HTML code or other Web Developing Skills (although HTML and other Web Development information can be used for your benefit!) The only things money can buy with WordPress.com blogs is: a nice domain (example: “http://www.myblog.com” instead of “http://www.myblog.wordpress.com“) or a few extra styling options. The fully custom domain names are just $18.00 per year (prepaid) and styling options vary; however, the styling options are really unnecessary.
6. Become an Official Individual!
“Blogs are wonderful tools to help bloggers establish themselves as experts in a field or topic. For example, if you’re trying to get a job in a specific field or hoping to publish a book on a specific topic, blogging can help legitimize your expertise and expand your online presence and platform” (Susan Gunelius, About.com Guide.)
7. Blogging is Permanent!
When you start a blog, it’s on the internet for however long you allow it to be! The longer you leave it on and update it the more traffic you will get! Compliment your blog so it can compliment you! It is also nice to know that WordPress.com offers a stat counter for your blog, that way you can track how many people viewed your pages, along with how many clicks your page got and which days you got most viewers.
