I blog therefore I am.

For many bloggers, whether they’re using their online presence as a hobby or as a way to build a professional career, the art of writing regularly to an audience – and also to yourself – demands a lot of work. Indeed, composing an article that will share your opinion or your experience with your readers requires planning, thinking, and creativity. A blogger is, ultimately, a writer with whom the reader can develop a close connection. The blogger shares real-life insights and anecdotes, taking followers on a tour at the heart of their personality. Where the writer can invent, embellish, build a fantasy world behind which they can hide; the blogger invites readers to discover their most intimate thoughts and worries. The writer tells the story they wanted to read. But the blogger tells their own story because they want to help others. And that precisely for all of these reasons that a blogger can experience lifestyle improvements that no writer can know. When you blog, you can affect the life of your readers for the better, but you can also change yours significantly. While there is no denying that many successful writers can relate anecdotes of the day they first noticed changes – someone such as J.K. Rowling who struggled financially at the beginning of her career is a remarkable example of success, for instance — but the lack of direct feedback for published authors makes it more difficult to measure improvements that go beyond financial matters.

You become better at dealing with what life throws at you
LIfe is full of adventures, and not all of them have a happy end. In fact, it’s not uncommon to feel overwhelmed and confused by everything life throws in your direction. You know the saying, when life gives you lemons, make a lemonade. The truth is that it takes a lot of time to be mentally and emotionally able to acknowledge the change and to seek help where you can. But blogging about what is currently happening in your life can help you to de-stress and write your thoughts down. As you put in words the situation you are going through, you begin to demystify it. Because it gets a name, it’s not an impossible crisis anymore; it’s a thing you can manage. There’s an ancient force that is often mentioned in fantasy stories about magic, namely if you know the name, you have power over the thing. Even in the real world, the power of naming puts you back in charge.

You can make money from it
One of the most valuable advantages of blogging is that you can turn your online presence into a money-making machine. Of course, it doesn’t mean that you can become a millionaire overnight. For a lot of bloggers, their online income acts as a side hustle revenue that comes on top of a regular source of income. Nevertheless, showcasing products or services can get you a decent contribution – after all, who are you to refuse money? There is a variety of strategy to generate income, from promoting direct items that your readers can buy – you can use Stylinity to add a buy now button to your online platforms – to offering paid services to your readers. Some bloggers also use their platform to advertise their activities, such as encouraging users to buy your book or to register with your lifestyle community.

You get to meet new people
Blogging is often wrongly depicted as a solitary activity. In reality, when you start blogging, you don’t have to do everything yourself. You will find more support in the blogging community than anywhere else! For a start, you can join an online community that can promote your blog and put you in touch with like-minded individuals. Most communities offer a free membership that you don’t have a pay anything to grow your social circle. Additionally, blogging lets you interact with new people – you can be invited to events and conferences – where you get to meet potential partners, clients or even friends.

You can discover trends before they’re big
Do you know when people know that something is trendy? Because it’s being mentioned by bloggers. As a blogger, you get to see products before they make it big on the market. Indeed, many brands are interested in working with bloggers to launch their promotional campaign. As a result, you might be among the first to hear about something new even before it’s coming to the shops! More importantly, you get to test it – whether it’s beauty products, clothes, new hotel, etc. – before everyone else and write about it. If you always want to feel ahead of your audience, blogging is the way to go.

You are a role model for your audience
Your online presence provides you with the opportunity to make a significant difference in other people’s life. You’re not just a digital voice. You become a person your reader trusts. You are the advisor they turn to when they’re lost. You’re the role model who inspires them. British vlogger Zoella, for instance, is one of those bloggers who act as a big sister for young girls. In reality, Zoella has been around for around 10 years, during which she’s made a name for herself. Through her tips on how to control anxiety to her outfit ideas that don’t break the bank, there is a lot of positivity to her content. And that’s precisely what blogging is about; you want to make the world a better place for your audience. And your tips can achieve just that.

You gain in self-confidence
There is a sense of exhibition when you blog about your life. But blogging is a little more than opening a window onto your private life. Blogging nurtures you, helps you during your darkest hours and creates enriching opportunities that you’ll never find anywhere else. Blogging makes you whole. And the more you blog, the better you get at being yourself and accepting who you are.

For everyone who is considering a blogging side hustle – as a hobby or as a career –, be prepared to experience life changes. You might be able to make money out of it. But you’ll undoubtedly grow emotionally during the process.
