Why do I blog? Hmmm! Good question.
You would think its because it is something I love doing, but far from the truth. I don’t hate blogging, but I wouldn’t do it as much as I did if the reward from it wasn’t so huge. I blog because it is a means for me to make money — if not a immediate direct sale or lead, it pays off in the long run.
Blogging gives me my own voice in a little small corner of the web, so that is always a good reason to blog it out! But the rewards of networking, audience reach, search rankings, industry spotlight, and independent expression is far greater reasons to blog.
I run numerous other blogs for affiliate programs and I’ve seen great rewards time and time again through the efforts of blogging. Plus it is a cost-effective way to traffic, leads, and sales generation.
If you are not blogging then you are missing out on the world wide web experience. Blogs are free and easy so there is no reason not to have one. I’d recommend WordPress.com as the free blog host of choice (or WordPress.org if you want to download/install on your server).
Even if you don’t have much to say, just speak your mind. If you don’t speak English then write a blog in your native tongue, the worse thing is you will just get less traffic — but the reward is the traffic will be more targeted, because anyone reading your language is a potential sale! If you can’t write everyday then write every other day, every week, every other week, every month — just write when you can. The point is you should have a active blog no matter what! Even if it’s just a microblog, like Twitter.
