Jane started a personal blog 5 years ago. When she began, it was more or less a hobby, trying to showcase her hobby to the world.

When she began, friends and family members, including her spouse, did not give a chance nor any form of encouragement. To them, she was merely wasting her time. The result? Today, her blogging has turned into a full time business, taking her across many lands.

Are you still in doubt as to why you should have your own personal blog?

Then read on. First off, starting your personal blog is easy, not as difficult as some do think.

1. Build Your Brand.
With a blog, you have the wonderful opportunity of promoting yourself. It is similar to having a personal channel like CNN and BBC where you broadcast any and all forms of information that catches your fancy without restrictions as long as it is within the ambit of the law.

It offers you the opportunity of becoming an expert in your chosen niche. More importantly, you are able to offer your

expertise to your audience. This also opens vast opportunities for you.

You can now be identified online like the big fish on the internet space. This gives you instant recognition. It is a wonderful experience.

2. Multiple Streams of Income.
Having your personal blog gives you the opportunity of establishing and pursuing your goal of having multiple streams of income. The opportunity is limitless but let me list a few of them.

{a} advertisement

{b} coaching

{c} services

{d} affiliate product/marketing

{e} ebooks

{f} your personal products

{g} your mlm company.

3. Build an Asset.

Having your personal blog is like building a house. Just as your house can generate passive income for you, similarly, your blog is an asset, capable of generating passive income for you.

4. Make You a Better Person.

One of the greatest benefit of having your personal blog is that blogging will make you a better person. If you love writing, it will make you a better writer and if you do not like writing, you will fall in love with writing.
You will also improve your writing skills. You will go on to develop yourself in many other areas of life.

5. You Will Be Helping People.

Blogging offers you the opportunity to have your personal voice. Through this, you will begin to spread information and your knowledge. Whatever you teach will definitely resonate with your audience and thus be able to help them to solve their problem. For instance, I write and teach passive income using network marketing as my vehicle. No doubt, there are certainly many people looking for ways and means of making extra income while keeping their day jobs.

The reality is more people want more money. As a result, they want to start their own business. Writing about how to start your personal business through network marketing resonates with many of my audiences and this has helped them start their own business. Nothing can be more satisfying than helping people begin their own personal business with little investment.

6. You Make Money with Blogging.

As visitors begin to visit your blog Google will begin to send you more traffic so also advertisement will be sent to your blog. This means more money for you as you begin to get a slice of the money paid to Google by advertisers. This begins the process of monetisation of your blog.

I recall the first time I heard that word “monetization” from my blogger friend from Australia, Yaro. That was when I realized the vast potential the blogging business has.

However, make no mistake, don’t be deceived, making money through blogging takes time, perseverance and real hard work. It is obviously a long term investment.

The goodnews, however, is that once you gain traction, your income will increase. It begins with a tricle, grows into a small river and gradually into an ocean.

Can you begin to get the picture?

Well…

Guess what? Some persons have been known to flip their blogs thousands of dollars; like my friend, Yaro. Infact, many bloggers are basically into blog flipping.

7. Use Your Blog to Stay in Touch.

Your blog offers you the unique opportunity of staying in touch friends, colleagues and family members. They can easily read about your activities, ideas and success.

I recall in 2015 when I got a call from one of my old friends at the university when he read my blog. He wanted to confirm and make sure that it my blog he was reading. I was thrilled, as he appreciated my writing and I was greatly encouraged.

8. Makes You Learn New Things.

Since blogging is all about sharing and teaching what you know, you must first learn in order to teach. With a blog, you are compelled to learn new things, particularly about your chosen niche and even more. This is also what establishes you as an expert.

Personally, I have learnt so much. For example, I have learnt to be:

1. Focused

2. Perseverance

3. Disciplined

4. Self-development.

9. Work Smart.

With a blog, you work smart. Initially, you must invest time, money and other resources to build a community of followers. Thereafter, your blog will begin to work for you 24/7. This is particularly true when you eventually automate your process.

For example, a blog can take time and energy to write but once written can continue provide value to your audience for years.

10. Blogging is a Business.

Blogging is of itself a business. Just imagine Jane mentioned at the outset who began blogging as a hobby, but gradually has grown the blog into a full time business.

If she did it and I am doing it, you too can do it.

11. Generate Lead 24/7.

When you begin to blog and grow your audience and traffic, Google will visit and crawl your pages. You will be listed on Google search engine and others such as Yahoo and Bing. It can be likened to opening a shop everyday of the week, non-stop. It is amazing.

That simply means that you will be exposed in the internet space. This will bring people to visit your blog 24/7. What this means in effect is that these people in turn will become your friends and possibly future partners. And you have every opportunity to promote your business to them. The possibilities are endless and amazing.

So that’s it. You now have 11 amazing benefits why you need a personal blog. So what are you waiting for?

Go get yourself a blog. Need assistance? Give me a call, I am here to help you.
