The Most Important Benefits of Blogging in 2019

Blogging has many benefits, from making you become a better writer to it becoming a great source of income. Here you'll find over twenty benefits of blogging.

Before I start letting you know about what I found to be the most important benefits of blogging, I want to give you a short introduction about what blogging is and a short story of mine. What is blogging? Why is it so important?

In the beginning, blogging was actually a personal web log, in which a person would write about their day or simply write about a story. Hence, the term of “web log” was converted into “blog”.

Just like most new creations on the Internet, many enterprises saw that having a blog is a great marketing potential, and that's how blogging took off. The reason it is so important is because a blog can both be used for marketing and also for a home business in.

The Most Important Benefits of Blogging

To be honest with you, I've never been much of a writer or a reader for that matter. Even though I liked writing and reading in English, I never thought about actually writing for a group of people and creating a blog.

While writing, I have realized that blogging has many benefits that are not as obvious for an outsider. This is what I have discovered to be the most important benefits to blogging that you may find interesting and maybe enlightening.


1. Become a Better Writer

I've noticed that writing day by day, articles after articles my writing skills started to improve and words came to me faster then they used to in the beginning.
Therefor, I came to the conclusion that the more you blog or write, the better writer you become.


2. Learn

In order to write an article, you have to read about the topic you are interested in writing about. Hence, this will give you a great opportunity to learn a lot about many topics.


3. Express Your Thoughts and Ideas

This is probably the best way to express yourself and let others know about your thoughts and ideas. A blog can contain words, images, and sounds.

Therefor, whether your blog is intended for, a formal business affair or just a personal “How I lost weight in 14 days” diary, blogging is an excellent form of self-expression.


4. Exposure

Writing articles will give you the opportunity of being discovered online by many people. Moreover, if you are interested to expose yourself and become a visible expert then blogging and social media is the best way to do that.

In addition, Google search is now the option everyone uses when they're trying to find people and information about a certain matter or subject.


5. A Better Job

Nowadays, most employers prefer to hire people with a good online influence and I believe blogging is the best way to achieve that. Not to mention there are many ways you can actually get a job just by blogging.


6. Increase Your Creativity

Improving your creativity through passion is the best way to go. You will notice that your brain will start thinking more creatively as you advance from conscious skills to unconscious and automatic activity, that frees up the thinking for out of the box thinking.


7. Improve Your Memory

Putting your brain to work through writing and learning will provide the needed exercise for the neurons. Furthermore, keeping the body fit requires physical exercise. Hence, the same goes for the mind! It needs to be stimulated and active as well to achieve mind fit.

You will be astonished by what you will remember from reading about the topics and writing or simply doing blogging activities.


8. Become an Expert

Publishing online through blogging will actually give you the possibility of transforming yourself from an amateur to an expert.

Therefore, if you keep doing this with a lot of passion, purpose and concentration, you will become an expert on your chosen topic. You just need to prevail!

If you wish to gain influence and become an important person, blogging is one of the best, easiest ways to do so.

A successful blogger can acquire a wide audience of people who follows, likes, trusts and respects him/her.


11. Become a Published Author

Becoming a published author these days can be quite difficult. Publishers are more reserved then they used to be and they don't like taking a chance with an unknown writer unless they know they can make profit.

Moreover, they would rather hire an author with an inherited audience of readers so that they can make profit easier and faster. Hence, this is why having a blog is perfect for you.

Therefore, having a blog isn't just a good way to become a better writer, it can also be your fastest option to becoming a published writer.


12. Start a Business

Even though blogging is usually used for sharing thoughts and ideas as a hobby, it can often grow into a full-time business.

There have been many bloggers that started their blog just to share their insights and ended up growing a powerful, successful business that gave them a solid income.

Therefor, if you wish to start a business that will give you a solid income to sustain your lifestyle, blogging is a perfect way to do it.


13. Obtain More Customers to Your Existing Business

Having a blog is not enough if you're not investing a lot of time and effort into it. Hence, if you have a static website/blog, you won't have many customers or clients.

As opposed to being a static blogger, if you regularly update your blog, you will notice a constant flow of good hints from all around the world.

Moreover, publishing blog posts that aid potential customers/clients work out their issues, they come to rely on you, trust you and respect you as an expert in the field.

In addition, if they are interested in getting more help than a blog post can offer, then they're likely to be thinking of hiring your business.


14. Acquire More Information About a Group of People

Blogging gives you a great opportunity to acquire more information about a group of people. As we all know bloggers spend most of their time expressing their ideas and thoughts to their readers. Therefor, by doing so, you will see that your readers will start sharing with you as well.

Knowing about your audience is the key to success, and that is why companies invest so much money and time testing out their products using focus groups. As a blogger, achieving this type of information is a natural daily routine.


15. Build a Network

Posting valuable and helpful blog posts draws readers that will then leave you comments on the site and send you personal messages through your contact page. In general many readers are usually asking for help, although there will also be some that will try to help you instead.

Blogging is also a good way to reach out to others, so starting a blog is a guaranteed way to boost your network.


16. Improve Your SEO

Blogging and SEO both are linked or connected with each other to get the fruitful results in terms of getting ranking, traffic and user engagement. Having a blog page allows to share new information that is useful and also increases the high possibilities to rank with the long tail keywords.

Whenever you write a number of valuable articles about a topic, Google takes notice. Therefore, every high-quality blog post that you publish is another chance to get traffic from search.


17. Gather Emails

Nowadays, social media is the most common way of getting an audience, but email is still the most reliable manner to communicate online. Email has almost three times the user base of any social media. Moreover, people check their email regularly and they're used to receiving the latest information.

Therefor, having a blog can really help you a lot gathering emails.

Convincing someone to give you their primary email is not easy, but once you do, you have a direct connection with that person. Furthermore, you will have the possibility of capturing their attention whenever you have something that you think will benefit them or if there's something important regarding your business or blog that you want to inform them about.

Focusing your energy on gathering lists of emails is a long-term strategy that will pay off quite well for your business in the future.


18. Learn Technical Skills

I know there are easy to use blogging platforms that do not require any technical skills. But believe it or not, through blogging, most people learn some HTML and CSS simply because it's easier to make minor improvements to your site by yourself than it is to hire someone to do it every time.

Furthermore, that's something that can really help you because fluency in web design, HTML, and CSS are highly valuable skills these days.

In addition, the same goes for various other blog skills like, content marketing, social media marketing, search engine optimization and graphic design.


19. How to Make Money Online

Once you have created a successful blog and have achieved large audience that supports you, making money blogging online comes natural.

Furthermore, the things you learn from your blog, marketing strategies that are effective, how to make money blogging, etc. will definitely help you speed up the growth of future embarks.


20. Advertise and sell a product or products

Advertising and selling products through blogging is from my perspective the best way to do it. Especially if you are an author or a producer, your blog will be a great platform to advertise and sell your own products.


21. Build Online Trust

Building trust online is by far one of the most challenging task. Trust is not something you can buy, or something you can get easily. It is actually quite rare and valuable online

Furthermore, it has to be earned by showing commitment to your audience, again and again. A never ending loop, regularly posting important, honest articles on the blog.

Therefor, in order to accomplish your goals online, you need to earn people's trust first.

The reason blogging is such a great way to help people is because of its power to educate, inspire and bring people together.
