September 24, 2010 , , ,

starting a blogOne day you woke up and suddenly you decided to start blogging, why? Just because you have read and heard so much about blogging and bloggers alike should not be the main reason to start a blog. Well you are wrong, that is not the reason to start a blog, if that is your reason to start blogging then you have failed before you have started. Blogging should be something you have a passion for it is hard work, it is not a simple walk in the park you need to be committed, dedicated and have the desire to learn new things, new ways to blog and succeed. Starting a blog is like starting a business and to succeed this must be backed up by a brilliant plan. Here are the only three Kick Ass reasons to start a blog.

Making Money – Blogging is a good way to make money online, yes you can become an internet millionaire by blogging. But this simple don’t happens over night or by the three clicks as you have read about in many sales pitches. The idea of making money from your blog is the number one reason why you should start blogging and become a blogger. Making a passive income is very much possible and this is also achievable, but you need a well thought out plan.

Owning A Business – Another reason why you should start a blog. Business owners should start blogging as this is a means by which they the business owners can interact with their customers and potential customers alike. This has its advantages and disadvantages, however, the advantages out weight the disadvantages. If you have an established business or about to start one then this is a perfect reasons to start blogging.

Having a Voice – By this i meant having something to offer. There is no doubt that the internet is the internet information highway, people use the internet for everything from dog walking to finding the love of your life. Believe it or not even doctors allegedly use the web to Google information about how to diagnose their patient’s problems. Having a voice is simple the sharing of information with others. If you are an Internet Marketer then you can have a voice by blogging about How to become an Internet Marketer.

Three Kick Ass reasons to start a blog, you may list many others but if you look closely they both fall under one of the above mentioned headlines i just mentioned. I challenged you to share with us the reason why you started blogging, is it Making Money, You own a Business or you Simple have a voice. Feel free to share your thoughts on this post and remember sharing is caring.

  1. Hi Gary,

    I agree with all the reasons you gave as to why people blog and those would be the top 3 reasons. I also think there are many people who blog just for the fun of it. 🙂

    As usual, another excellent post!

    1. That is true Robert however blogging for fun is another reason but i believe that blogging for fun could fit under the heading having a voice. Thanks Robert for your input in this conversation.

    1. Thanks for your comment and i am glad to have you here we do hope to have you here more often. and that is so true blogging is a great way for anyone who has something to offer.

  2. I guess my reasons fall under number 2 and number 3, but all of that is closely related to number one. I mean I own a business, so that means I want to make money, I want my business voice to be heard in order to make money, when you think about it, it almost always revolves around number 1, they are all closely related!

    1. That is true Shabnam blogging to maitain on online diary and personal experience is another reason but i think we could slip that under the headline having a voice. Thanks for your comment

  3. A must read for non-bloggers. Making money online..Yes, it was one of the primary reasons behind my blogging. And I think we all think the same way. Money making online has never be so easy before. Blogging does make it look like a joyride but the truth is also opposite. It can be a pain in the ass at times. I have been through the same experience. But then I am to be blamed for it 🙁

    The other two reasons including owning a business and having a voice does fit well with this blogging thing. Business blogging or corporate blogging is getting very common these days. Blogging has become an indispensable tool for business owners. It is truly one of the best marketing weapons online. Also, having a voice…well, I am personally not much into this. But we have some business blogs where we are working on the same and to be very honest, it is paying us some good results if not the best.

    1. Thanks Aswani for your thoughtful comments and great insight into this topics your comments here at i always find it very helpful and well thought out and it also adds value to the article.

  4. Great point Gary. I switched from blog for fun to blog for business. Now, my three main reasons because I blog are: 1) Make money 2) Share quality information 3) I’m free to do what I want.

    1. That is good Nicola i guess it is fair to say i was right your third reason falls in my third category Having a voice now these are the three reasons to start a blog.

  5. All of your points are excellent reasons to get out and blog. Blogging may not be for everyone but if you enjoy writing it is a wonderful way to express yourself.

    If you have a business, it is also almost mandatory, because of all of the minor benefits that it can bring to the table.

    1. Thanks Steve glad you find the post useful and yes if any one have a voice it is good that they start a blog it is a medium from which one can start a life long journey

  6. Thanks for sharing your useful thoughts. Blog is a online business tool which boost up the promotion of a business. nice contribution dude!

  7. This was so true. Making money was one great thing other bloggers considered as it was also their way to make a living especially those who take this job full time and with all sincerity. Being in a community was also important to make your voice be heard. They can help you also promote your business and make it grow more.

  8. These 3 things made me think of blogging, actually I have a blog before but it has not been updated since, and with this you make me decide to own a blog again.

  9. Every business should have a blog. It is your chance to get your voice across and gain authority in your area of business. I see too many business blogs though, that are set up but then hardly ever updated. Really you should write a new post at least once a week.

  10. Hi lawmacs:

    Thanks for dropping by at my blog. This gave me the opportunity to read your blog post. Your reasons are just perfect and every one agrees with them. Bloging is a great outlet for online presence. Simply keep doing what you are doing. Net work and write outstanding posts on the topics people are interested in. Apply as much traffic to your blog. You are in a win win situation.

    If you have certain goals, work on them along with your related blog posts and share.

    Have a great weekend
    Fran Aslam

    1. Thanks to you too Fran for been here your visit and participation here is much appreciated and you are totally right in saying blogging is a great outlet for online presence

  11. Blogging can also make you popular and it’s also a great way to deal with stress (usually for non-bloggers or bloggers who never intended to earn from it). My reasons, well, I just want to do more experiments about SEO, and without a blog, it’ll be hard.

    By the way, Gail just sent me that anti-spam plugin as well last weekend, but I haven’t installed it yet, been very busy this past few days. So how was it compared to Akismet?


  12. Blogging is also a way to share some of your knowledge. Everyone is good at something, and few have the chance to teach and share the knowledge.
    Blogs, even the free ones at and blogspot, give you this chance! You can share,teach and of course the most basic..learn too!

    Nice article 🙂

  13. Nice post to read through and i really like the reason that you have told about starting up a blog and it seems that i am looking to start up a blog and i will keep these useful advices in my mind so that i would be appreciated like the way you have been…. Thank you very much…..

  14. Great article and helpful tips. It’s nice to see that people still take the time to teach others by offering free advice and information. That’s what keeps ’em coming back! 🙂

  15. Well Blogging is the great art that help to increase your site popularity through writing effective posts on different blogs.Very useful reasons and advices of why you should start blogging.

  16. “Having a Voice – By this i meant having something to offer.”
    I very much agree on this point. This also regulates it self – if you don’t have anything to offer, your blog post will probably never motivate people to read and comment, and thus blog will die out 🙂

  17. I’ve been actively blogging to not only tell readers about interesting technologies and such, but to also try and gain a substantial readership for future installments. I like that you pointed out that businesses need to try and actively maintain a blog, because it not only looks good for traffic results, but it shows that you have an active interest in consumer feedback.

  18. For businesses, it’s important to start and maintain a blog for the sole purpose of engaging consumer feedback. Plus, having fresh, interesting topics can possibly invite a good following for future installments.

  19. Hey lawmacs,

    Well after reading this article , i am looking forward to make a personal blog .There is currently quite a lot of information around this subject on the net and some are most defintely better than others. You have caught the detail here just right which makes for a refreshing change – thanks.
