WHAT INSPIRED ME TO BECOMING A BLOGGER

Becoming a blogger it all started with a simple question: What am I passionate about? For me, the answer was clear: writing. So, armed with nothing more than a laptop and a dream, I set out to create my own blog.

It wasn’t easy at first. I had no idea how to start or what to write about. But I kept at it, posting new articles. And slowly but surely my blog began to take shape. Today, it has been about 7 months since I started my little online project, and I couldn’t be happier.

My blog has become a source of joy and inspiration for me, and I’m so grateful I have found my niche.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CREATING A SPACE FOR SHARING MY THOUGHTS

To be honest with you guys I had no idea! When I first started blogging, it was to be an artist of my craft and create the best work. To also make money online from home while achieving success as a writer.

According to Glassdoor, bloggers in the United States on average earn $52,000 per year.https://firstsiteguide.com/start-blog/

My mission from the start was to be heard so that I could be given a platform to what truly speaks to people around me and they can read or experience thoughts or issues they may have been struggling with on a daily basis.

Additionally, I really enjoy the creative process of writing posts and coming up with ideas for new content. It’s always exciting to see how my readers respond to what i’ve written. It’s gratifying to know that I’m able to provide value for them. Finally, I think blogging is a great way to express myself and document my and thoughts for future reference. It’s nice to know I can go back and read what I’ve written in the past. And see how I have grown as a writer.

All in all, these are the things that keep me coming back to blogging. It’s a great community, it’s creatively fulfilling. And it’s a way for me to connect with others and document my life.

Share my thoughts and ideas. Connect with people from all over the world. Sometime, things can be challenging and it can be hard to stay on track.

But I try to simplify my life by keeping a schedule and staying organized. I also try to make things easier by writing down ideas and thoughts. That can refer back to at a later date. By keeping things simple and organized, I’m able to stay focused on why I started blogging in the first place. And that helps me to keep going, even when things gets tough.
