It wouldn’t be an overstatement if I say that eight out of ten blogs being launched these days are meant primarily for money making, and why not? Everybody has the right to make hay when the sun shines, similarly all of these bloggers are entitled to try and cash in when they see an opportunity, and there’s nothing wrong with the approach.
But money making is certainly not all a blog has in the offing, there are some very real, and even more long lasting benefits than some bucks coming your way.
In this article, I’ll be sharing at least five benefits of blogging that carry more weight than the monetary gains coming from a blog. And the best part is, you don’t need to let go of the monetary benefits, instead you can avail all of these benefits while making money at the same time.
Of course all of these benefits wouldn’t apply on everybody, but each one of them is worthy of going for.
#1 Stress Relief
Writing is a form of catharsis, for years; people have used the practice of “writing diaries” as a way to let out things which are destroying their peace of mind.
People suffering with high level of stress must give blogging a try, while it might not prove to be a cure, it will certainly help you take your mind away from the stressful thoughts, at least for a short period, and these short breaks will go a long way in breaking the monotonous chain of thoughts that results in stress.
#2 Weight Control
I’ve gone through the results of at least two studies suggesting that writing on meaningful topics will help you shed some extra pounds, or at least keeping your weight in check, and while doing so, you might be able to earn some extra bucks that you can spend on getting exercise equipment to help you maintain fitness.
Not only that, writing on these topics will let you learn a thing or two about the right diet or exercise plan to go for.
#3 Fame & Recognition
Blogging is a great way to gain some fame and recognition in your respective field. Some months of regular blogging will give you the recognition that would have taken years otherwise.
Having a blog is a great addition to your job resume, and a definite plus for your business card. From doctors to architect engineers, and from weight loss experts to fitness trainers, anybody can work on a blog to add another feather to their hat.
#4 Learning & Education
Blogging on a topic will encourage you to stay in touch with the latest developments and new studies, not only that, but you get some really insightful comments from your visitors every now and then, in short, blogging can be a very fulfilling experience as far as learning is concerned.
For example, when you are blogging on weight loss, you will have to read about the pros and cons of various weight loss methods, exercise programs, diet plans, and all, and after some time, you will be having a lot more information on the topic.
Do you agree with these four points ?
