Are you an IT person?
Yes! Have you ever thought to start a blog?
Most probably yes; you might have also started a blog before, but end up losing the energy to continue with this idea.
Many people started a blog, chose the type of their interest and are enjoying success now.
The above one is seriously a proven fact.
If you think that blogging is not what you’re capable of doing, still you should have to try this being an IT person.
And believe me…
In future, you’ll look back and say this is the one best thing you’ve ever done for yourself.
Blogging is the easiest way of getting yourself started with the online business. But you may have not considered the benefits associated with it.
Here we’re discussing the 12 reasons starting a blog is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.
1) It Helps You to Make Extra Money
Being unemployed, tried to get a job but didn’t find any, most of the people decide to start a blog so that they can earn money from it.
Ofcourse, this is the best option to go for, while searching for a job.
Some people do this just for fun or as leisure time activity, but they manage pretty good that even they start earning.
So why not you??
Think of what you’re interested in?
And get started with your blog to do something useful.
2) It Can Be Enough to be Your Only Source of Income
This is the powerful point that persuades people to start a blog.
Full Time Income
Yes sounds exciting??
It really is – if you do it seriously
Well, full time income is much better than average. Isn’t it?
There are lot of examples to mention, but it would take way too much time. So, I am just summing up in one example:
Jeremy Schoemaker – founder of ShoeMonay.com – once revealed that he made about $132K in just one month from AdSense.
He is now earning more than $100k per year from his website.
Well this is what is called motivation.
Jeremy – and others like him – work for themselves enjoying what they do.
They’re doing so much just through a blog. Otherwise, their life might not be the way it is today.
3) You Will Be the Only One to Order Yourself
Everyone is sick of typical nine to five hard dull work and want to get relaxed. How would it be if you’re your own boss?
Surprisingly awesome, right?
Many people dream of it, but only a few become able to achieve their dreams.
All the popular bloggers once were in the same place where you’re today. They dreamt and worked hard to attain it.
Don’t hesitate, give it a try, start your blog and getting ready to jump from an employee to your own boss – where there will be no restrictions.
Keep the example of Melyssa, founder of MelyssaGriffin:
She was fed up of her job and decided to start her own blog, back in 2013. She worked so hard that within 8 months, she left her job and turned her blog the main source of income.
Creating a blog only doesn’t means that you’ve got everything done.
You have to do a lot of hard work that will eventually make your blog successful.
Well, yes, it is a reward in itself. As you are working for yourself not under anyone else.
4) It Can Make You An Expert of a Specific Topic
Have you ever listened that a blog can make you a go-to person, instead of just being a blogger?
Let us tell you, that hard work would not only give you earning but can also makes you an Authority.
What does that mean?
For example, you might hear that someone is one of the best conversion copywriter or someone is great photographer so they started to teach others about photography business.
It means they’re actually a go-to person, instead of sticking to only the blog they became go-to persons.
So if you think that you’re a specialist in a field, start a blog now, create good content and provide your services to others. Let your voice shine through and become an authoritative voice in your field.
5) It Provides You the New Career Opportunities

Making a first step is always easy, but to keep it going the way we decided is difficult.
Creating a blog is easy – hardly takes 10 to 15 minutes to set.
But building a community from your blog is difficult and challenging task.
You will always hear the word “challenge” when you’ve your competitor. We always try to avoid this word and don’t want to do hard things.
But the challenge is an major factor in shaping one‘s own personality. When we challenge ourselves, face problems and remove obstacles that’re blocking our way, we undoubtedly grow into a better person.
