why I should start blogging ?
Halo, I know everyone is surprised especially my friend’s zone buddies why I have created this page as a blogger because I have so many reasons. I would like to share it with all of you must read it.
Blogging is about sharing what you see, or want to see, in the world. It’s about teaching or sharing what you know and what you, too, are learning. Literally when you start a blog, you’ll find yourself always learning new things about your areas of interest so you can keep sharing without running dry of ideas.
Think of it this way: when you set out to wash clothes, your objective is to clean the clothes, not your hands, but it’s your hands which become clean first.
The ability to think clearly and generate ideas is one of life’s most critical skills, yet one of the things you don’t get taught in school. Blogging fills that void, helping you grow your thinking muscles exponentially.
You’ll learn to reflect deeply on your life, your relationships and your society; engage with others intellectually, appreciate the strengths in arguments and point out the flaws in them; appreciate the tiny distinctions between what, why and how; the nexus and disparity between excuses and justifications, and so on.
Many things have boosted my writing proficiency over the six months: essay contests, tapping from mentors, reading books, etc. But none of them has challenged me so consistently as blogging.
Here’s why: writing mastery comes with constant practice and blogging is just about that. In his epic book, “On Writing”, Stephen King discusses how once he didn’t write for several weeks due to an accident, and how when he started to write again, his words weren’t flowing well.
That’s how inconsistency weakens your writing muscle, and that’s why blogging, which keeps you writing regularly, helps you write better. Moreover
It builds your confidence; it helps you to speak more coherently also it sharpens your mind and observation; it boosts your thinking capabilities and enhances creativity. It builds your network and it can help you build a legacy that would outlive you.
The best words of Oprah Winfrey:
Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
