Here I shall list five reasons why you should start blogging.
1. Great way to vent your feelings: Do you face a situation when you are confused about something and would want to share with someone but are also worried about being judged? If you start to blog, you can connect with like- minded people and share your feelings. It is a great outlet to write to share your frustrations. I know as a mom most of your time goes away in tending to every small need of your child and at the end of the day you wait for that one moment you can have time for yourself. I would suggest from my personal experience to write about your day and relax. I am sure it’ll help. It did help me tremendously.
2. Make friends: Take my word for it. I am an introvert person and do not make friends easily. I am shy to approach people and wait for others to make the first move. But blogging changed me. As I started to write and read more personal stories, I connected with other mothers in some way which was so different. Imagine you haven’t met them but know so much about them. Seems like some karmic connection.
3.Develop your network: Also you can develop a network for yourself. And it doesn’t matter what you choose to blog about. It could be parenting, food or travel, once you start sharing your stories and promoting on social media you shall build your network with people who share your interests and enthusiasm.
4. Make money: Yes, initially you will need to give time to build your network, learn to promote and develop your blogging skills but you will make money eventually. You won’t get rich but if you have decided to be a stay at home mom then it’s an ideal way to make some extra cash. It shall give you the pleasure of using your time productively and some financial independence.
5. Develop your hobbies: You love to read, blog about your favourite books. Start a community. You are good at craft, share DIY activities on your blog or You Tube. You love to travel, share pictures of places you visited, share everything about your adventures. I believe the maximum satisfaction a person gets if one can make one’s hobby their profession or source of earning. And the satisfaction is incomparable to anything else when someone comments on your blogs and appreciates it.
I bet when you go back and read your articles and the comments you will feel an amazing sense of enjoyment and contentment. Today when I read my blogs I wrote a year ago, I feel I have learnt so much about myself, how I have changed positively as a human being and the skills I have developed.
I have always been writing a journal since a very young age and I didn’t want anyone to read it. You know, secret journal but see how times have changed. Now I want more people to read my articles and my musings. I want them to follow my blog.
So do keep coming back to Aesha’s Musings and dont forget to comment.
Happy Reading And Writing!
