5 Reasons Why You Should Start A Blog


I have embraced numerous hobbies throughout my life, such as; dance, performing arts, singing, cello, guitar, football and most recently photography - just to name a few. But despite these hobbies bringing me great satisfaction, I have found myself partaking more often than not in blogging these days, which means that although I thoroughly enjoy my other hobbies and interests, I haven't been giving them quite as much of my undivided attention as I should be and you're probably wondering why is this?

Blogging is a hobby I regularly recommend to others. I started She In The Know on January 2nd 2017 as a personal tool - to journal, to work on my writing and to give myself something else to focus on besides working or exercising; however somewhere along the line, it became less about writing and more about the story of me and who I am as a person. Blogging changes you; as a writer, as a creator, as a friend, as a sibling and as an individual - you become passionate, you become confident and you become more open-minded in day-to-day life, without even noticing it at times.

Thus, here are '5 Reasons Why You Should Start A Blog':

1. YOU WILL BECOME A BETTER WRITER -
At its core, writing is a form of communication. It's all about recording thoughts and compelling others to agree with them and to that end, writing (just like all other forms of communication) can be improved upon, with practice. Blogging will not by any means force you to become a better writer, it'll just happen and becoming a better writer will hold important benefits for the rest of your life - whether you're writing a book, creating a presentation, updating your curriculum vitae or perhaps writing something personal, like your wedding vows. Blogging has made me much more conscious of how I write on a whole, for instance; what words I should incorporate and how my posts should be played out to you, my reader. 

2. IT WILL LEAD TO HEALTHIER LIFE HABITS - 
Blogging requires time, patience, devotion, commitment and most importantly discipline - just to be clear these are all things you should try to embrace, if you hope to take your writing and/or blog to the next level. Since starting my blog, I have become a runner, a cyclist and someone who thoroughly enjoys lifting weights. I spend much more time looking after myself than I've ever done before, despite pulling many a late night to work on my content.

3. YOU WILL INSPIRE OTHERS - 
Blogging not only changes your life, but it changes the life of your reader and because blogs are free for the audience and open to the public, on many levels, this would be seen as an act of giving. It is a selfless act of service to invest your time, energy and worldview into a piece of writing, only then to offer it for free to anyone whom wants to read it. You will find yourself more often than not, inspiring those around you and it's a wonderful feeling - never be embarrassed by this.

4. YOU WILL BECOME MORE CONFIDENT - 
Quite surprisingly blogging will help you discover more confidence in you and your day-to-day life. You will quickly realize that you do live an important life, with a very unique view - you will realize that you have something to offer others and thus it should be shared. I find that my own self-worth has improved since starting my blog, despite getting butterflies each time I press publish (clearly, I have a lot of work to do).

5. YOU WILL MEET NEW PEOPLE - 
Whether it's through comments, emails or even social media itself, you would be surprised how quickly you can meet people online and by people I mean legitimately form relationships that seek to serve one another. From experience the blogging community is friendly, encouraging and genuinely cheering for you to succeed - the only thing missing now, is you.
