Hello friends, I want to tell you the importance of blogging.
I first heard the term in 2019. I did not understand what is blogging? It took me 2 months of search all over the internet to understand what does blogging mean? Then I figured out that whatever we read in Google or Wikipedia, someone must have written it in the first place. The people who write the content in some form or the other are called bloggers and the process of writing and publishing content on various websites is called blogging. It is then organized properly on the internet, and depending on the search queries, the data props up.
In layman terms blogging is what we used to write in English essays in high school, the same content written for various business as content on their websites and optimized according to search queries on Google is called blogging. But why is blogging important in the first place?
Today I will list 7 reasons why blogging is important.
Firstly, it helps in organizing your thoughts. Human mind is such that except while watching movies it is always in some thought process. So many things keep tinkering around in our mind. If we keep writing articles on the topics on which we have command on a regular basis, it will help in organizing our thoughts and we can read it after some time interval. We can of course, share it with other people and include them in the discussion but the point is, it should be in written form. Otherwise, everything remains in our mind and we keep on getting confused. There is no clarity about anything.
Instead, if you start blogging on our specific niche, it will become a habit and after some time, let’s say 1 or 2 years, it will become very easy. There will also be a lot of content on our website because if we publish 1 article in a week also, then in 2 years there will be more than 100 articles on the blog. And if you research properly with various tools available in the market for keyword planning like ahrefs https://ahrefs.com/and SEMrush,https://www.semrush.com/ you will be able to publish quality content and it might start getting ranked in google.
The second reason of blogging is to learn digital marketing. The first time I heard this from a person in a YouTube videohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8rN3JKqUc8, I was totally surprised. How could you learn digital marketing by only blogging? Then after following some courses on digital marketing and learning in detail, I figured out why he said so. Actually, everything is connected through web. And he meant that if you make a website by purchasing a domain and hosting of our own, you will have idea and a first-hand experience of how digital marketing actually works. After purchasing the domain and hosting, it has various options like making an e-commerce store or a simple website where you only publish blogs regularly.
These blogs if written regularly for 2 to 3 years will become very valuable provided certain conditions are met. The conditions may be like blogs should be relevant to the topic chosen and meet all the requirements of the search engines.
Before the evolution of digital marketing, offline marketing was followed for acquiring customers for any business. But traditional marketing was very expensive and less efficient. Through digital marketing, customers can be acquired for business at a lower cost. It is for this reason that every business wants to focus on digital marketing. And for job seekers it is very important to learn digital marketing. And the most efficient way of learning digital marketing is through doing yourself. The easiest way of learning is making a website and start blogging.
And when you start blogging, WordPress website, different types of plug-inshttps://rankmath.com/, payment gatewayshttps://www.instamojo.com, seo and everything else will be included which is also part of digital marketing. The deeper you get, the more information you get. You can make your website https://digitalness.in/according to your interests and needs.
If there are good articles on your website and the articles are google friendly, it means your content is very good. So, you might get a job of content writer in a good firm. But to reach that position you will need to learn about many tools available in the market. And you will end up learning a lot of things about digital marketing. And if your website has a lot of traffic, you might earn from display ads also.
The third reason is that one can easily become an author by blogging. Becoming an author has its own benefits. Take the example of Chetan Bhagat.
He has written only 6 books and a Bollywood movie has been made on each of his book. And his books have become bestsellers and his details can found on Wikipedia also. Now, since 2009, he has stopped searching for jobs and has become a writer full time.
For becoming an author, you need to write 50000 words approx. If one writes 50 articles of 1000 words or 25 articles of 2000 words, it can be easily organized in 20 or 25 chapters in a sequence in such a way that it takes the form of a book. Of course, before writing you, yourself have to read a lot of books and then decide the topic on which you will write your book. Publishing has become easier than 20 years ago. Now you don’t need a publishing house to endorse you and it can be self-published. It also helps in developing a personal brand in your niche.
The personal brand can be used later to sell your products or services and you can choose to do a job. Finding job will become easier because you can prove that you have authority on the topic or niche on which you have written the book.
The fourth reason of doing blogging is that it is a very important component for organic traffic. Whether you want to start a business or join an organization, marketing will still be needed. And there is no alternative to digital marketing. And in digital marketing, apart from paid traffic you will need organic traffic also which is impossible without great content. And for great content which is Google friendly, you need to write good content for your organization depending on its needs. It will only be achieved by writing continuously over long period. It will only become better by practice and over time.
If you still have any doubts, whether to start blogging or not, you need to stop thinking and just start blogging because I was able to convince myself that blogging is so important, after remaining in dilemma for 2 years. If I had started this 2 years ago, and only written 1 article in 1 week, my website would have 100 blogs. And maybe a small book would have been published which would be a great value addition for my career. If you don’t to make this mistake yourself, start blogging today.
The fifth reason of starting a blog is that Google ranks websites if the website has good content and many backlinks. Backlinks in digital world means someone is referring you for good content without any payment just because you wrote good quality content. Good quality content with many backlinks can be written only by practice and there are many tools and websites which will tell your how your article is performing on the web. And how can it be optimized for search engines.To know more about search engines you can visit this website.https://sanjayshenoy.com/
Because once you start blogging, you will start learning how to write and modify content so that, it ranks well in the search engines. The quality of your content will only increase with time and you can also modify your previous content if you feel it can be made better.
The sixth reason for starting blogging is that there is a lot of demand supply mismatch for good content writers in the market. There are more than 50000 jobs for just SEO in India. The salary ranges from Rs1.2 lacs per annum for a fresher to Rs.10 lacs for an experienced professional. If there is good content on your blog, you can showcase it to your employer that you have written so many articles and they are also performing on the search engines. Then you will be able to negotiate better. It will also achieve in achieving financial freedom if you have money problems.
