Blogger's Corner 101: The Pro's of Blogging

November 3, 2014

Welcome to the Blogger's Corner; a new series about the awesomeness of blogs and how to get started.  I've been blogging since 2006. Vulcan Sugar and Spice has gone through quite a transformation in the last eight years, and so have I as a blogger. Blogging can be a great hobby and sometimes with enough work it can even become a profession. Here are three positive reasons that I love blogging, and hopefully after reading this, you will want to start blogging as well.

   Podium for your thoughts: One of the coolest things about blogging, is that it gives you a place to speak. Whether you are an outgoing person, or rather shy, the internet provides a forum for you, and your blog is your ticket in. Everyone has something to say. Either they write it in a diary, they put it on note cards and speak to the people, or they face a camera and hit record. Either way, Everyone has a voice, and the world has about 850 ways for you to express it. It allows you one way to show the world what you are made of, and why they should perhaps take a listen.

   A chance for your hobby to shine:  A well put together, and often-updated blog not only  allows for a steady following but can also double as a portfolio. It gives you the chance to show everyone exactly what makes you so magical. Blogs have been the foundation to many a successful indie Business. Since practically everyone is and everything is done online, having a positive online presence could lead you to many a great opportunity. Having a positive area for people to find will lead you to many a great opportunity.

   The ability to network: My favorite thing about blogging is the people that you meet. Not only are you able to meet people that you normally wouldn't know exist, but it gives you the ability to network and to meet people that share the same interests as you! For the longest time, I thought I was the only person into Professor Layton Video Games, but there are lovers of this game all over, some of my early gaming posts about Layton still get props from people all over the world. As much as I want to say that success is all about the hard work that you put into your: blog, business, youtube what have you, knowing the right people, does put a foot in the right direction. Networking through blogging allows you to open doors that possibly weren't there before. 

   To recap, To Blog is to create, and no matter how many of us say "oh I'm not that creative" What's more creative then the freedom to express yourself in a space that is all yours? Blogging allows you a safe forum for your thoughts, creates a pedestal for your favorite hobby, and gives you the ability to network, with people and countries, that you otherwise, would never come across before.
