5 Reasons to Start Blogging

5 Reasons to Start Blogging | Dominique D Wilson

Start a blog to build your personal brand, and you'll experience a new level personal development and spiritual growth—no doubt about it!

Though your reasons for blogging may vary—your unique voice is a powerful asset to the world regardless of the type of content you choose to write about.

Not only is blogging a means of sharing and contributing to the vast pool of knowledge we have access to—it also provides individual perspectives on just about ANY subject, which is both a refreshing and necessary alternative to dogma and canonical information.

Perhaps you have an untold story of personal transformation that you know the world needs to hear, 

Perhaps you want to create a space to freely express your ideas and opinions, 

Perhaps you're suffering from too many ideas syndrome, and you want clarity so you can launch your creative business,

OR, Perhaps you have a BIG vision of helping others, and although you can see the end goal, you're not sure how to get started.

Whether you're a spiritual entrepreneur, creative entrepreneur, solopreneur, stay-at-home-mompreneur, lightworker, healer, holistic practitioner, small business owner, or multipassionate individual who hasn't yet settled on a concrete idea for the conscious business you've always wanted to start...

Starting a blog is a safe way to take inspired action towards your purpose. My journey has revealed 5 Reasons to Start Blogging, which are to empower your 5 M's: Mindset, Message, Mission, Mastery, and Magnetism.

Now, let's dive right into it!

Reason #1: Empower Your Mindset

Lack of clarity is the #1 reason I hear given by brilliant women who know what they want to achieve, but haven't yet taken action to build the business, mission, or movement they're always talking about.

BUT, I disagree that confusion is the culprit being feeling stuck.

Regardless of your achievements, qualifications, finances, relationships, etc.—your mindset is what determines the extent to which you experience happiness, personal success, and fulfillment in this life.

Even if you haven't settled on a solid business idea yet, starting a blog can actually bring forth much of the clarity you seek, and build a strong foundation for your personal brand.

The key is to stay focused on writing about what most inspires you.

Inspiration is evidence of a core value, which is fundamental in building an authentic brand based using your unique voice.

We all have fears, concerns, and even uncertainty from time to time.

BUT,

I can assure you that the answers WILL NOT come if you keep standing stillyou must take action by creating something and putting it out there!

You can read more books, take more classes, watch more videos...and still feel the same level of confusion you started with (or may even more).

If you want to get off the hamster wheel of ideas—take action by picking a topic that's inspiring to you, and use it to launch your blog!

Blogging on topics that you’re passionate about will help you to find your voice, get clearer on your purpose, and identify your ideal client or audience.

Always remember: Thought creates options, action increases clarity, and consistency products results.

 

Reason #2: Empower Your Message

Whatever it is that you'd like to tell the world—blogging can empower your message.

Each of us has a story of a turning point—some defining moment in our past that permanently changed our perception of the world.

Perhaps you’ve overcome some form of adversity or challenge, or someone influenced you along your journey.

The act of communicating your story—whether verbal or written—sparks a creative process that enables you to develop new insights, and gain a better understanding of your values, beliefs, and purpose while sharing them with others simultaneously.

It's one thing to be aware of how you're story has impacted you, but demonstrating what you've learned it through the art of self-expression is where the real shift happens!

Telling your story throughout your blogging journey will strengthen your sense of purpose and fulfillment, and enhance your ability to communicate your values in such a way that connects with the hearts and mind of your ideal audience.

You'll relate to others' experiences, develop your confidence, and continue to evolve as a powerful agent of positive change in the world!

 

Reason #3: Empower Your Mission

If you’re launching a personal brand, blogging will empower your mission by give people an incentive to engage with you again and again.

According to Content Plus, "60% of consumers feel more positive about a company after reading custom content on its site."

Blogging increases your overall brand awareness, and can by leveraged to drive more traffic to your website—not just any traffic, but your tribe!

ThinkCreative reports that, "Small businesses that blog get 126% more lead growth than small businesses that do not blog."

By using relevant keywords in every post, you can boost the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) rankings of your website, which helps your ideal clients to find you when they type their questions into search engines.

Having a blog will also strengthen the impact of your brand message because there's only so much you can fit into your brand mission statement! 

 

Reason #4: Empower Your Mastery

With consistence and persistence, blogging can empower your mastery by establishing you as an authority in your industry or niche.

By creating high-value content on a consistent bases, you will become the 'go-to' person for issues related to your main topic.

Don't hold back the good stuff when writing articles.

Many people do this based on the limiting belief in scarcity or fear of competition.

But, if you hoard your knowledge, you will miss out on the infinite flow of abundance that you could experience if only you choose to participate.

Give and receive equally. Don't be afraid to share your ideas, wisdom, knowledge, perspective in a way that is complete and as thorough as possible.

Be conversational, but solution-based in your approach to blogging so that you can help people get results.

This shows them that you actually know your stuff, that you are approved, and they will trust you because of it!

Every time you provide valuable content that educates, inspires, and addresses the main problems or concerns of your intended audience—you position yourself as an expert in your niche.

 

Reason #5: Empower Your Magnetism

Blogging can empower your magnetism—drawing in support from kindred spirits (clients, fans, other influencers, etc.) that are aligned with your mission.

Did you know that the About page is the most visited page for almost any website?

It’s important to develop a genuine connection with your audience by giving them a real sense of who you are—the person behind the brand.

Does your About page contain your bio, your story, and at least one photo It should.

Since technology has replaced much of the live our human interaction—a website without a human personality just won't cut it these days!

People want more of YOU because it's in your reflections they can catch a glimpse of themselves—it's familiar, it's comforting, and yes it's narcissistic!

But, it's the nature of the game, and it's how you're going to make a real connection.

People buy from those they know, like, and trust—whether that's buying into products, programs, services, or ideas.

Blogging can also be a tool to help you form strategic partnerships with other other people in your niche for mutual growth.

Seek out guest posting opportunities, or link to other influences in your articles and tell them about it.

You'll be amazed at the support and growth that results from partnering with like minds.

Happy blogging :)

In Peace & Beauty,
