Whenever I meet people and they would ask me, “What keeps you busy these days Jonan?”
I would smile and reply, “I blog about my life.”
Then my answer would spark a conversation on blogging, what I blog about, why blogs are important and how I do it.
This post answers some of the basic questions about blogs.
What are blogs and why are they important?
The word “blog” is a combination of the word “web log”, which is simply similar to your journal or diary, except that it is written and published through the web.
In today’s era of the World Wide Web, it is important that you are able to establish your online presence through a blog.
Having a blog allows you to freely express your opinion about your expertise, politics, or current events. Your blog will enable you to feature your hobbies and interests, such as travels, food, pets and collections through online writing.
Isn’t it wonderful that besides your office-to-home routine and weekend activities, you have your own home in the web where you can blog about your life?
Also, having your own blog opens you to many opportunities in the web to connect with other people, oftentimes, with similar interests or topics that you are blogging about.
Furthermore, when you are blogging about your expertise and experiences, you will become source of authority in the World Wide Web. You will be surprised that soon you find yourself getting invitations for consultancy about your expertise, guest blogging, online writing, and blog mentoring.
From just a simple blog about your life, you are able to touch and influence other peoples’ lives. With this and the possible monetary benefits, you add great meaning to your life when you have a blog.
