Why Do You Blog?

There is absolutely no doubt that the benefits of blogging are virtually unlimited, but we all have days when we ask ourselves why we do it. This is likely to happen during moments when we have trouble coming up with blog topics. Sometimes we just need to be reminded that there really is a purpose to it all.

So tell me, why do you blog?

V7N Member Kev says . . . 
My blog is a portal to my forum. It acts as a gateway collecting keywords, Google results pages and traffic. Its also the 5th highest source of traffic to my forum, referring several thousand people every month. It also provides me with an outlet for my post besides on my forum. When I make a post on my forum, it might get buried with the other thousands of post. But a post on my blog is more visible to people and to search engines.

Blogging is part of my job. But I think if ever I will change my career, I’ll still do it because it’s already part of my special interest which I truly enjoy. And what’s more? It’s also my good way of earning extra income through AdSense.

I’m a hopelessly addicted blogoholic. I have more than a dozen blogs of my own and do ghostblogging for clients as well. It’s a great way to establish yourself as a subject matter expert which can make you money through affiliate marketing, there’s AdSense and link income and I also get freelance writing jobs as a result of some of my blogging efforts. It’s amazingly powerful for SEO! Plus I think it’s fun. I have made some great online friends in the blogosphere.

    You got the motive that why you want to blog. If you do not have motive then you will become more and more lazy to continue write yourself a blog.
    I blog because i would like to share my lifestyle with others.
    I blog for company because i would like to improve company website conversion rate and improve in SEO.

  3. I blog as a way to give back. Of course, there’s the other side of me that’s also looking for a small side income, but making really good money on a blog takes a lot of work and a lot of time. Expecting to make a full time salary is very ambitious and requires a lot of business know-how and planning. Right now I blog because I’ve learned so much from other blogs and wanted to give back in my own way. I also find so much cool stuff around the internet and learn something new everyday, so I want a way to share that, beyond just social networking.
