6 Reasons to Start a Blog TodayHi Friends! There are so many reasons as to why we started our blog. This has been something that we have wanted to do for a while, just never had the courage to go for it, until now. After learning more about the benefits of becoming a blogger, we decided to give it a chance and we are so happy that we did. While there are many different reasons as to why one would want to start a blog, below are six top reasons as to why we started ours.
Become Our Own BossIt has been our dream to one day become our own boss. The thought of being able to choose our own work schedule and be able to work remotely is our ultimate goal. Being able to be our own boss, making our own business decisions, and having the ability to work from anywhere would be so nice, wouldn’t it? We have heard so many success stories about bloggers being able turn their blog from a hobby to a full-time business, which has been so inspiring to us.
Bonding with Each OtherIn addition, we wanted to have a career where we could work together. In the past, we have had the pleasure of being able to work together at three previous employers. It was wonderful being able to drive to work together, go to lunch together, and so forth. We are very close and we share very similar visions and goals. So what better way to continue our bond. Learn New Skills Since starting our blog, we are continuously learning new skills, which are valuable in so many ways. For starters, we have perfected our time management and organizational skills. There is a lot that goes into a blog, from creating a business plan, designing our blog’s layout, marketing our blog, attracting an audience, mastering social media and marketing online, to learning about the tech side of things when it comes to our blog. We have been able to perfect our photography as well. When we started, some of our pictures were not that great, however, with practice and experience, we were able to perfect our photos. We are still learning and with time, we will continue to improve on new and old skills.
Improved WritingWith practice, comes improvement. We have always enjoyed writing. Combined with our joy for writing and our passion for helping others resulted in the creation of our blog, My Horse Barn, which has been an amazing decision. Since starting this blog, our writing has improved, which helps for us to better communicate with our readers. Make Some Money Since our goal is to turn our hobby blog into a full-time business, being able to monetize our blog is also another great benefit to starting a blog. Whether you want to make a little money or a lot of money, it seems the opportunities are endless. Whether it is through affiliate marketing, sponsored posts, or selling our own products, there are options that provide a blog to generate an income.
Help & Inspire OthersBeing able to help and inspire others is another great reason to start a blog. We all have been new to something and being able to help others that share a similar passion has been a joy for us. We decided to create My Horse Barn to help and inspire others that are new to owning horses and that are also new to starting a blog. By no means are we experts, however, we are able to share our tips and knowledge of both of these topics that will help our readers in their journey as well. By creating a community, we are able to help, inspire, and support one another.
