Reasons You Should Start A Blog

  1. Exposure: If you want people to read your work, it needs to be accessible. Getting published by a traditional publisher is no easy task. Publishing your own work is easier than ever. By starting a blog, you’ll be creating a platform where others can see what you’re all about.
  2. Competition: Your competitors already have a blog. Most every writer who wants their work to be seen has a blog. Whether you’re already published or just starting your journey, a blog is essential in the current market. If you want to be seen and heard, you should start a blog today.
  3. Practice: A blog is a great place to practice your craft. You should have some basic writing skills first. Remember, when people visit your blog, they are getting a first impression. You need to make sure that you publish quality work. That said, posting a few times a week will help you improve as a writer. Practice creates success.
  4. Connections: When you have a blog, you’re bound to meet new people. You’ll get emails from readers. You’ll want to share your work via social networks. You’ll meet other writers. You may even make connections to literary agents and publishers. Blogging is essential to networking. 
  5. Future: Blogging and self publishing are the new standard. If you want a future as a writer, you’d better get with the program. In fact, most blogs are moving toward multi-media formats. That means you’ll need to consider podcasting and video, too. But first you need to start a blog. If you’re a writer, don’t hesitate.
