Well, because it’s fun, really.
Blogging is a great hobby for anyone enthusiastic about writing. It allows you almost-instant content creation ability, and thus increases your creativity. It’s a great way to develop your writing skill, and gain feedback from a plethora of fellow bloggers and readers across the interwebs.
I’ve been blogging for many years now, and in that time, having the knowledge that I have this facility out there in cyberspace – my blog – gives me the inspiration to constantly think of ideas for what to write next. Of course, using a strong blogging platform such as WordPress helps augment the enjoyment of the whole blogging experience.
Blogging shouldn’t be seen as a stressful pursuit, but rather an enjoyable escape. I always encourage creatives to keep a blog. If anything, it can serve as a digital portfolio of your work, and a rapid-fire way to interact with like-minded people; people who care about the work you produce.
So, go forth and blog. And if you have any questions about blogging, feel free to post them in the comments below; I’ll be glad to help.
