5 Reasons Why You Should Start A Blog

When I first discovered blogging, it was a whole new world to me. The whole concept of blogging about anything you love or have an interest in, had definitely driven me to start my very own and who better to start a blog with than my sister! Reading and seeing so many different types of blogs had given me the inspiration and a sort of stepping stone to guide me through the blogging journey and I'm enjoying every minute of it. Yes, there are millions of blogs out there but there's always room for more! So here's 5 reasons why you should start your own.

1. You can share your thoughts on anything you are passionate about

Your blog is like your own little platform where you can voice your own opinions, share your own thoughts and advice on something you love or have a general passion for. For example we love all things beauty, hence why this blog is mainly beauty related, well the name kind of gives it away lol. Whether it be travel, food, fashion, beauty etc, you can go in whichever direction you want and theres no rules to what is right or wrong, its all down to you!

2. Blogging is a great hobby 

Blogging is a great way to pass some free time and you don't even have to move from your sofa, which is an added perk! For me its like a hobby, I like to blog whenever I'm free as I can't usually blog regularly due to education and other commitments. So don't feel pressurised in having to put up a blog post up regularly, if you can't then thats completely fine because theres no rules to when and how you blog, just treat it like its your hobby.

3. You could earn money from your blog

There are are so many bloggers out there who are earning a living from their blog and you could be one of those people too. For most people blogging is their job and they treat their blog like a business. The great thing about it is you can work any hours you like because you are your own boss. However just a side note, it does take a lot of time and effort before earning money off your blog so just take it slow you know...theres no rush! 

4. Blogging can help to build your confidence

You're able to communicate with so many different people, whether it be people who leave you comments on your blog or communicate with you via social media accounts, its a great way to talk to new people and build up your confidence. You'll come across people who share the same interests as you and its always great when bloggers support one another on their content. Blogging has definitely contributed to building my confidence as I was always slightly hesitant in starting a blog, always worrying about people judging my opinion, but I've learnt that it is your blog at the end of the day and there are people out there who will love to read your content. 

5. You can help inspire others

The reason we started the THEBEAUTYSPOT was because of reading so many other related beauty blogs which inspired us to start our very own. Its your platform where you can share your advice and interests which could have a positive impact on someones life - that seems pretty rewarding if you ask me. So it may be your blog that could inspire someone out there in the world (pretty deep stuff)....

So those are just 5 reasons why we think you should start your own blog. There are endless reasons why you should start blogging but this post would probably get a tad too long so I think I'll stop there. If any of you guys have a blog make sure to leave your blogs in the comments below and also your twitter or instagram names as we would love to follow some new bloggers! :) xx
