Why you should blog instead of clean your house
Another guest blog for you, this time by Stella Benett
As our lives have developed, some of us have been finding new hobbies, new ways we can deal with our growing range of activities.
Blogging is one of those excellent activities and it has much to offer, especially if you’re willing to give it all you’ve got. House cleaning, carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, oven cleaning, home chores of all kinds and so many other things can be put on hold. Let someone else do the heavy lifting, a cleaning company or something would do.
Why should you do that? Well there is a very good reason why blogging trumps many other activities you can do around your home. Don’t believe us? Let’s shed some light on the subject matter:
It makes you a better writer
One thing people often forget is that writing is communication at its core.
It happens to be one of the most excellent ways of putting ideas to a written medium and having others experience, process and share them and your skill will improve with practice, up to a point where you will have confidence and skill you can count on.
Becoming a better writer will also make you a better communicator, so it’s a win-win scenario all the way.
It promotes rational and logical analysis
You will become better at processing ideas, whether it is by pure thought or on paper, blogging will encourage you to be more creative, to scout for information and apply it in new ways. It will stimulate your analytical side, allowing you to view your world in new ways and shapes.
A lot of people tend to shy away from blogging because they think they have nothing to say or the world won’t care what they have to share. Wrong. Try it, expand your worldview and find new ways you can grow as a person. Surprise yourself with how much you don’t know about the world and you will see things anew.
You will be more vigilant
As anyone who had to deal with ideas, processing them requires a certain state of mind and mental focus if you want to succeed. Blogging allows you to filter out a lot of the chatter around you and to shape your ideas into a finer point, nailing things you want to express or share with the world.
This is a completely different medium from writing a novel or short stories, so you would do well to keep that in mind.
It will focus your attention and problem-solving skills
It will also lead to getting time, commitment and discipline figured out into your daily routines. These are things you will learn to embrace if you want to be a successful blogger, as they will be what makes or breaks your blog.
This will give you a chance to be more focused on your tasks and to learn how to keep at them without losing heart and letting it all go. Remember: No one can destroy your dream but you.
