5 Reasons Why You Should Blog!

I think this list is long overdue... So without further ado, here are 5 reasons why you should blog (or if you already do, 5 reasons why it's awesome!)...

1) It passes your time in a productive way: Yes, that sounds like something parents would totally dig, but hey, it's the truth! Blogging is quite beneficial, unlike updating your Instagram status every 30 seconds, which brings you to nowhere. (Yes, I am guilty of that)

2) It helps improve your writing skills: Now that's a big plus. When I first starting blogging, I was just an average writer with lots of things to work on. Of course, I still have loads to work on, but now I definitely think I'm a better writer. I choose better wording, and I have found a style that represents me.

3) You learn a little more about yourself: Since I've started blogging, I've learned a lot as a writer, but also as person. Through writing, I've developed a better understanding of myself, of my weaknesses and strengths. And I think that has made me more aware of how life affects me, and how I affect the people around me.

4) You can steal your own ideas!: Have you ever been given a writing assignment, and found yourself stuck, with no ideas in mind to write about (a.k.a writer's block)? Well, every time I'm stuck in that position, I just go to my blog, look through my past posts, and pick out a subject I had already written about and try to develop it more. I've used this method three times now, and it works like a charm! (We should name this Self-Plagiarization)

5) You make new friends: The blogging community is a vast one, but after a while, you find your place in it, and that's when you start making new friends. Friends who share the same interests as you, who never fail to inspire you. And you can always count on them to start up a great conversation that is always fuelled on passion!

Do you have more reasons of why one should blog? If so, feel free to leave them in the comment section below!


  1. Sorry if this comment is long but I can relate so much to this post.

    I confess, i am guilty of that on Tumblr I post like every few seconds. And when I just finish something good and find all these fan bases, posting mega-fast. So guilty. =___= I use to suck at writing reviews, now I get a structure going on with the format in which i write reviews. And I've learned that i suck...at explaining...and what's better than a reviewer who sucks at explaining right? *sarcasm*

    And making friends.<3 Without you and so many other people, I would never have continued.

    Oh yeah, and cause it's SUPER FUN! Love this post, Grace! <3

    1. Thanks Delaney! And I think you're great at explaining things! Everybody's writing style is different, and that's what makes blogging (and exploring other blogs) so much fun!

      Thanks for the (long but great) comment Delaney!
      Blogging buddies forever! XD

  2. Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes! Love this post, Grace! I am so with you on all of these :) Blogging is such of a productive thing to do and making new friends in the blogosphere is an absolute joy to do! Plus, it's fun, sooo :P

    1. Haha, exactly, exactly, and exactly! I'm glad you enjoyed this post, Lottie!
