Like most bloggers, I started a blog to make money and grow a business. The appeal of earning an income while working at home (for yourself!) is what lured me into this world of blogging. But as I threw myself into this new pursuit… it ended up becoming more than that… with all the benefits of blogging that changed my life.
The benefits of blogging
Blogging gave me a hobby
Blogging let me be creative
Blogging gives me an outlet
Blogging forced me out of my comfort zone
Blogging built my confidence
Blogging made me discover new passions
Blogging bonded me with my daughter
Blogging bonded me with my boyfriend
Blogging made me a better writer
Blogging made me meet new people
Have you thought about becoming a blogger? What’s holding you back?
My future blogging plans include expanding my travel section and getting to see places around this great country with my family. I’ve been lucky in that this blog has started to produce an income, but the benefits of blogging I’ve experienced so far are well worth it. And who knows where future blogging opportunities will take us… Paris perhaps? (my daughters dream, ha!)
You can easily start a blog of your own!
