I know what you’re thinking. You’re like:
“Just because you’re a blogger doesn’t mean I should blog too. It’s not by force.”
And to be honest, it’s not by force. I’m not here to argue with you and tell you the various reasons why you should blog.
This post is not for everyone and not everyone is for this post.
This post is for those who are considering blogging but are afraid that they might get ridiculed by peers or that they have poor writing skills and don’t have what it takes to write a blog.
Actually, you do. I started this blog when I was ten years young (or old, however it seems fit to you) and I didn’t think that I had what it took to start a blog. But I started any way.
So, today, I am going to give you reasons (and hopefully convince you in the process) on why you should start a blog.
1. You have content
Everyone has content. Don’t think that you don’t have content. You don’t have to be a lifestyle blogger or blog about makeup or fashion or music or entertainment. You can blog about anything.
If you are being bullied at school, you could start a blog, anonymously, on the life of a victim of bullying. It could be a fictional character with your story or it could be your name with your story. It’s your choice.
If you suffer from depression or you are awfully shy and an extreme introvert, blog about what you love the most.
There’s always an audience out there waiting for you.
2. You’ll inspire others
I cannot tell you how many people are amazed that I have a blog and feel like starting a blog too. Even though most of them don’t start a blog, inspiring them is enough. It’s something.
So, if you start a blog, people will be inspired by your content and/or you.
3. You’ll find a platform to recommend
If someone comes up to you and tells you that they want to start a blog but have little to no coding experience and they don’t know what platform to use, you can recommend your platform to them.
After all, sharing is caring.
4. You’ll meet people
Through blogging, you can make new friends. People who share the same beliefs as you. For example, take Zoella’s YouTube video, Draw My Life. She said that she started blogging and in the process she made a friend who is her BFF as of now.
5. You’ll become a better writer
For those of you who think that you can’t write well, blogging will help you write better because you will proofread your post and other people will proofread for you and you’ll become better at writing. It doesn’t force you to write better instead you become a better writer naturally.

If you already blog or write but you’re having a hard time thinking of what to blog/write about, then check out my previous post.
And if this post convinced you to start blogging, then let me know in the comments below.
Remember this though: You don’t blog because you want to be popular or Internet-famous, you blog because you have content that you want the world to know about.
