If you hate writing, don’t start a blog. But if you enjoy writing in any form or have a service product or business to promote you can’t ignore blogging. When I started blogging I had no clue. I knew nothing about writing ,Wordpress, SEO, image optimization ,nothing.
But then one day something happened and things fell into place .That something was Indiblogger followed soon after by Blogchatter, their contests and challenges, helped me get the much needed push. I believe it’s my moral duty to help all sleeping blogger wake up too .
Once people said newspapers were over .They said paperbacks were over because eBooks are here
People regularly predict the end of television. Let me tell you a secret ,nothing went away .
Things evolved and become different .Just like that, if someone tells you blogging is so over believe it at your own peril. If you have a story to share you must start a blog. If you are passionate about a cause start a blog.If you love kitchen gardening, cooking, sewing ,organizing,decorating ,crafting ,DIY , just about anything can be promoted with a blog.
Five reason you must start your own Blog in 2018
It’s your online diary, memories ,workbook, portfolio, secret keeper, book-to- be. Your blog is your pensieve (almost like the one Dumbledore had)It’s your way to create something .It’s your chance to live a creative life, because that’s the best kind of living.
It’s your chance to give back to Google .The world wide Web and Internet thrives on the Go Giver policy .The more you share the richer you become. If you have lived a little and loved a little and learned something, you are in a perfect position to start your own digital nook. If not anything else daily inspirations can be what your blog gives.
In this day and age of social isolation, loneliness ,emotional ill health, writing is therapeutic .Since it’s not easy, it makes your brain work a little harder and keeps those old age brain plaques away. Challenge your brain and keep dementia away. If it’s easy ,it’s not exercising the brain.
Blogging will pay its own course.In India Blogging is an unorganized sector. But the good news is, if you are hardworking you can make your blog pay its own way .But it will not be quick or easy .The journey is uphill but fun. It’s like finding an ice cream shop at the top of a hill. As more and more brands discover the power of unique content, blogging in India will only get bigger and better.
Blogging is powerful. It’s your voice .It’s your media house and your chance to lend your support to things bigger than the individual. Wherever you are if after reading this ,you say hi to me on twitter @misra_amita ,I will always reply .Happy blogging.
