5 Reasons to Start Blogging


5 Reasons to Start Blogging by Dominique Wilson

 

Do you dream of making a positive impact on the world?

Are you pretty clear how your big vision will finally look once it all comes together, but unsure of how to actually get started?

Whether you're a creative, solopreneur, stay-at-home-mompreneur (like me), holistic practitioner, small business owner, or a multipassionate individual who hasn't yet settled on a concrete idea for the heart-centered business you've always wanted to start...

 

Starting a blog is an underestimated, but powerful was to take inspired action that will move you from where you are now, to where you want to go on your personal or professional journey.

...Maybe you want to empower women by leading workshops and retreats,

...Maybe you want to speak or write a book to inspire others through telling your story, 

...Maybe you want to teach, travel, sing, create art, or start a holistic business...

If this sound like you, then I've got 5 ways you can benefit by starting a blog right away!

 

 

Reason #1: To Get Clarity

Lack of clarity is the #1 reason given by brilliant people who haven't yet gotten started on building their dream.

Even if you don't have a solid business concept yet, starting a blog can actually bring forth the clarity you need to build a strong foundation for your business, mission, or cause.

You can simply write about what inspires you.

Remember, inspiration is evidence of a core value, which is fundamental in building a brand based on your authentic 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 still—you must take action.

 

...And by action, I mean create something and put it out there!

 

You can read books, take classes, watch videos...and you will always have questions.

 

If you don’t get started, you will get stuck on a hamster wheel of ideas waiting for clarity that just won’t come.

 

Action brings clarity.

 

Starting a blog is a super safe way to take action, and grow your business, your mission, or your movement.

 

So if you've been trying to figure out what's the first step—Boom! There it is! ;)

 

Even if you’re not sure of what your business is, you can simply start writing about what's most inspiring to you.

 

Blogging on topics that you’re passionate about will help you to find your voice, get clearer on your purpose, and identify who you intend to help.

 

If you think you don't know what to write about—always go back to what inspires you. Write about what you're most passionate about.

 

You may be surprised at what opens up for you!

 

Reason #2: To Tell Your Story Powerfully

Each of us has a story of a turning point—a defining moment that permanently changed the way that we see the world.

...Perhaps you’ve overcome some form of adversity or challenge

...Perhaps someone influenced you growing up.

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.

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

Telling your story throughout your blogging journey will strengthen your sense of purpose and fulfillment, enhance your ability to connect and relate to others, develop your confidence, and who knows...

Maybe you'll be the that inspires someone else to take one small action that changes their life and everyone they touch, forever!

 

Reason #3: To Grow Your Business

If you’ve already started your business, it's no secret that having a website is essential in today’s world.

But, having a blog will give people a reason to keep coming back to your website over, and over again.

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

Blogging can also increase the visibility of your brand online, and drive more potential clients to your website.

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

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

Having a blog will also strengthen the impact of your brand message.

 

Reason #4: To Establish Authority

With consistence and persistence, blogging can establish you as an authority in your industry and/or niche.

 

By making your content constantly visible to your audience, you will become the 'go-to' person for issues related to your niche.

 

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

 

Reason #5: To Build Trust & Form Strategic Partnerships

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 voice to who you are—the person behind the brand.

 

Does your About page contain your bio, your story, and at least one photo?  ;)

 

Because technology has replaced much of the live interaction we had as humans several years ago—having a website without a human personality just doesn’t work anymore!

 

...You can have a beautiful theme, a nice logo, and tons of great content but people want more of YOU!

 

They want to know who you are, what you believe, what inspires you, what irks you, and why you do what you do—they want to know your story, so let them see you!

 

Remember, people buy from those they know, like, and trust.

 

Blogging can be a tool to help you form strategic partnerships with other other people in your niche for mutual growth. For instance, you can exchange support by guest posting on each others blogs.
