Most of us start a Blog to express our views and to feel a sense of achievement on being popular. But Blogging can lead to Side Effects (positive, of course), some of which you never might have expected.
Your Writing Skills improve like Magic
Blogging frequently will help you notice a substantial improvement in your writing skills. You will start learning the art of organized writing, paraphrasing content and summarizing ideas. You never know – might end up writing a “Best Seller” some day!
Develop a Network of like minded People
You know where I find the most of like minded people on the Social Web? Not on Twitter or Facebook, but on the comments section of my Blog. Your Blog will ultimately be the channel to earn you the acquaintance of like minded folks and the prospective relationships there after.
New Business Opportunities
The content that you write and the information you share, exposes the innate talent and skills in you. This has the harmful(!) benefit of some new Business opportunities knocking your door. Especially good for freelancers and another reason why should they start a Blog.
Source of Passive Income
Once your Blog gets popular and has the necessary ingredients for money making, then it slowly turns out to be a source of Passive Income. You write what you like and get good money in return. Sounds ideal, isn’t it?
Brand Name Association
Your Blog Name (or Brand Name) becomes an identifier for yourself. You are innately associated with the Brand Name and become inseparable! So, if you start a Business with this Brand Name then marketing costs come down to earth!
There are many such hidden benefits that your Blog can bring you. Anything missing? No problems and that is why the comments section is for.
