Blogging has changed my life in many ways. A few weeks ago, I was part of a blog series that asked this question: Why did I wait until midlife to start writing a blog? I answered that question here, but that question sparked the concept for this post. How has blogging changed my life?
Here are the seven ways blogging changed my life:
#1. Blogging introduced me to people from all over the world.
#2. Blogging allows me to follow and read impeccable writing and interesting topics.
#3. Blogging honed and sharpened my writing skills.
#4. Blogging ignited the fire of creativity in my life and motivated me to take writing more seriously.
#5. Blogging introduced me to a vast number of resources available to writers and bloggers.
#6. Blogging opened up social media channels, allowing me to connect and maintain valuable relationships. I first used Facebook to engage with family and friends (and even met my future hubby there—read this post). I am becoming more proficient at these social networking sites:
#7. Blogging gave me self-confidence to start an online business focused on writing and consulting.
I have been at this blogging journey consistently since 2014. These two questions keep coming up:
What is in store for my future in blogging? The simple answer is, I love to write. I enjoy creating blog posts that are informative and share my love of photography and leisure.
Will I make money as a result of blogging? Who knows? I wouldn’t mind making a few bucks, but I don’t want to work that hard! My preference is to continue the writing journey for fun rather than for profit on the blog.
Coincidentally, Suzie, the well-known blogger of Suzie Speaks, published the following post the day before mine. Take a look at “What I’ve Learned About Blogging.” This is a perfect example of how bloggers work together and demonstrates our similar journeys into writing.
