BE YOUR OWN BOSS
Are time and flexibility important to you? With an established blog, you are your own boss. It’s your business. Want to work from home? Set your own daily schedule/times or deadlines? Have weekends off? More time for hobbies, family and friends? Take a vacation? You decide.
More time, flexibility and income means you can work (or take time off) from anywhere, anytime. Want to travel more often (when the pandemic is over)? Part of the year? The entire year? Move across the country? You can.
THE SKY IS THE LIMIT
As a blogger, you have limitless income potential. You can work (and earn) as much or as little as you want. You are not bound by an employer’s hourly wage or salary cap. As your own boss, it’s your business that you can take to the heights you choose. With several possible income streams, the sky is the limit for the dedicated blogger when it comes to making money.

Blogging is more than business. It’s also creative work. Do you have the heart of a creator? A writer? Are you an artist at heart? If you’re not able to express yourself creatively in your daily 9-to-5, starting a blog can be a side hustle that also serves as an expressive, creative outlet. It’s representation of yourself and your creativity, online and in words.
A blog can also be a passion project. Passion equals drive, and purpose. It’s an expressive, creative outlet yes, but also even more. A passion project has meaning (more than just a creative outlet). It’s hopes, dreams and inspiration. Are you inspired to share your passion or interests with others? A blog on your passion can do that. Or are you passionate about writing or blogging itself? Then blogging is definitely right for you.
FRIENDSHIP & COMMUNITY
The blogosphere is a community. A network of supportive creatives and writers. Here, you can make friends, form connections, and be a part of something important. A group of like-minded, passionate people reaching out and sharing their ideas with others, helping and promoting each other along the way.
It’s possible to make life-long friendships in the online world, getting to know interesting, kind people who otherwise would have never crossed your path. And when the pandemic is over, consider attending a blogging conference (there are many options) to meet your new community in person.
IMPROVE YOUR SKILLS
Blogging is skilled work. If you’re looking to learn something new or improve your skill set, starting a blog is a great option. Become a better writer, improve your photography and graphic design skills, learn search engine optimization and social media marketing, and master business skills such as sales, branding and more. In other words? Valuable skill sets that can serve you now (in your new blogging venture) and in the future.
HAVE A VOICE
A blog is a platform. It has a readership, an audience. And an audience has value. If you have something important to say, a blog gives you a place to share your thoughts (or sell your products), to discuss and grow. Have your voice heard by creating your own platform, by starting a blog.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Have a voice, make a difference. A blog can be used for good in many ways. Discuss important issues. Build a community. Raise awareness (or funds) for a worthy cause. Give yourself and others a voice, the opportunity to be heard. Improve someone’s life with your product or advice. Make someone smile.
Starting a blog also makes a difference in your life. As a business with the potential for limitless income (and so much more), starting a blog can absolutely make a difference in your life (and bank account) for the better, in countless ways.
