Five Real-Life Benefits of Being A Blogger

As I was doing some reflecting the other day, I came to the realization that blogging has had a tremendous impact on my daily life. Today I have decided to piece together a list of ways that blogging has unconsciously influenced me. Hopefully you may be able to relate to several of these as well.

1. Improve time management skills.

As a blogger, it is important to set aside time to write up new posts and take photos. Consequently, you end up developing your time management skills. In the seven months that I’ve been blogging, I’ve become much better at managing my free time. I don’t waste much time sitting around, because they is always something I could be doing for my blog.

2. Add to your resume. 

Maintaining a blog takes a plethora of time and dedication. Therefore, it’s a great project to help expand your work resume, especially if you blog about a field you’re interested in. Blogging showcases your innovation and strong work ethic.

3. Foster your interests. 

Blogging allows you to not only share your interests with like-minded people, but allows for them to grow as well. By partaking in a community that encourages you to explore your ambitions, you are able to improve yourself.

4. Engage with new people. 

Starting up a blog opens you up to a vast world of people. From blogging, I’ve spoken with so many different individuals, who often share the same interests as me.

5. Gain technological skills. 

With the fast past at which technology is growing, having technological skills is extremely important. Being a blogger has helped me navigate social media better, as well as understand web design.

What real-life benefits has blogging had on you? 

Sincerely,

Paige

  1. I so agree! Especially time management! I feel way more organised when I’m blogging regularly (last year i wasn’t a very good blogger! opps!) And I also find it so nice to set time aside to read others blogs, I learn things rather than mindlessly searching through Facebook/social medias! Love it! x

  2. Definitely agree with time management! It feels so good to be on top of all your posts as well! I’ve found blogging has added that little bit of pressure on to me in a positive way. If I don’t have a little bit of pressure to do something, I do it less, like reading. And it’s just really nice to be able to express your feelings and your interests and everything that makes up yourself! 😊

  3. I do this for a volunteer organization and it has refined my writing a bit. I just want as many people to read my stuff and if possible give feedback. Although the technological stuff has yet to come to me.

  4. I haven’t been blogging that long but I am getting a great response to my humorous take on life. I enjoy making people laugh. Writing comes easy to me and there is certainly no lack of material! I am looking forward to perfecting my blog and growing my audience.

  5. Such a great post! I couldn’t agree more. I haven’t “been” a blogger for a long time.. it’s been a month or so… but I can already see the benefits. I’ve come in touch with so many people, who I probably wouldn’t otherwise. I learn new things about my interests every day and I’m only sorry that I hesitated for so long. Feels good to be a part of something that helps you grow and develop your potentials. Again, great post & keep up the good work 😀

Its constantly on my mind! The other day I was driving 🚗 and actually stopped to take a photo of the view for my blogs instagram. The photo came out pretty good I think

  7. I’m so happy that Chrissey introduced me to your blog through our new collective! I’d have to say one of the biggest unexpected benefits of being a blogger has been the need to learn more about front end web development. It’s an awesome skill to learn!
