Blogs are still one of the best ways to build an audience of real people.

Your first 365 days of blogging will be critical to your success.

Blogging will give you a reason to spend too much time on social media. You can use Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or Pinterest, all of them can be assets that will allow you to grow your blog. While it used to be that successful bloggers would then need to expand into social media, now it's the opposite.

Writing might be the single most important skill you can learn if you want to be successful with any online business. A blog actually gives you a way to practice these skills. You will learn how to get people really interested, engaged, and entertained.

Single biggest key to success with an online business is CONSISTENCY. Sometimes it can be tough to know what to work on. But, when you have a blog, and you set a posting schedule, it provides much needed structure to get things done on a regular basis.

Think about creating an online asset for yourself.

Learn to edit photos. Let's face it. In these days, and Instagram, you need to know how to make your photos a step above everyone else'.

Stop having a boring life. When you are forced to write on a regular basis, you want to keep it interesting. And, a blog can help push you out of your comfort zone and try new things.

Attract job offers. When you start a blog, you're able to prove you're someone who takes action and has a certain level of expertise.

A successful blog is more valuable than any resume will ever be. Period.

Keep in touch with old friends. You know all of those people from your past you don't really want to talk to anymore? Start a blog and let them follow you there, so you can finally unfriend them on Facebook. It's also great for letting friends and family know you're still alive if you're not the best at keeping in touch :)

Support your friends and family. Give them a shot at fame by letting them post on your site, or by promoting your siste's new business venture.

Start living the life you really want. The whole reason I started this site, to begin with, was to hold myself accountable for doing the things I really wanted to do in life. My bucket list was the very first post I ever wrote, and I would never have done many of the dozens of things I’ve checked off, were it not for starting a blog.

The first step toward making drastic changes to improve your life is starting a blog. It allows you to sort out your priorities and then meet like-minded people who will support you every step of the way.

Hold yourself accountable for just about anything. No matter what hard thing you want to do in life, declaring your intentions publicly is one of the most powerful positive motivators out there.

Meet other like-minded individuals. Stop searching for likeminded people, and create a magnet for them to be able to find you. There's nice out there for absolutely everything and you can create something that thousands of people would love to talk about.

Get opinions! Add a poll to the blog, and ask people about anything.

Get donations. Changes are, if you do this long enough, someone will be thankful for the value you have added to their life. Toss up a donation link, and give them a nice sob story about how you're broke. You never know what will happen!

Note: I’m broke please feel free to donate here. Second Note: That was a joke, I’m not broke. But the link actually does work :)

Have a platform to make money in a more meaningful way. When you have a blog, you now have a platform you can monetize by creating your own products or marketing your services.

Get constructive criticism.

Stress relief. If you're one of those people who hasn't started a blog because "you don't know what to write about", then just treat it as a personal diary or journal. You don't even have to make it public. Just write things down and get them off your chest. Chances are you're going to go back and read them later, and find a few nuggest of wisdom or other good ideas. Building a writing habit is one of the single best things you can do for your business.

Become a source of influence. Start a blog, and begin influencing others in any way you see fit. You can share your advice, recommend products, promote living a healthier lifestyle, help people build businesses, the sky's the limit.

Share your hobbies. Maybe other people haven't caught on to the wonderment that your hoby brings. This is your opportunity to show them how cool it really is. No matter what niche you're in, there will be others who share your passion.

Be different! How many people do you personally know that have a legitimate blog? Dare to be different, and start doing things your own way!

Feeling depressed? Millions of other people are too. Use the writing as an outlet, and then start getting help from others who have been there.

Give back. Look at where you are today, how much you've learned and all the people that have helped you. Starting a blog gives you a forum to share your knowledge, and give back the community that helped you, whatever that community is.

Become an expert yourself. The more time you spend writing about something, the more knowledge you gain. Thus, the more likely you are to be perceived as an expert in your field.

Create an email list. Regardless of what you're trying to sell or promote (even if it's just your ideas), a blog gives you the power to start creating an email list of people interested in what you have to say.

Document your quest. If thre's one thing I've learned it's that having a "quest" of some sort, can be one of the best ways to make your travel more meaningful.

Truly work from anywhere. Unlike most traditional forms of work or many hobbies, you can truly do it from anywhere.

Makes you take action. The nature of a blog means it needs to be updated, and you need to create new posts on a regular basis. So, if you've struggled actually following through on a project, a blog is the perfect starting place. You'll have something that you have to do every week, so it can help you ge t focused and actually take action. Get in the habit of taking action.
