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.
