4 Reasons Why I Started This Blog

I don’t like writing and I never blogged in my whole life.  So why I decided to start a blog all of sudden?  I thought about this for while now and I came up with 4 reasons why I started the blog.

1. I need to learn to write

I suck at writing.  But I realized if I want to get serious about online business, I need to learn to write.  When I was growing up, I avoided writing much as I can.  When I was in school, I did barely enough writing to get by on all of my classes.  Soon as I finished school, my writing stopped.  I feel like writing is so tedious. I get bored right away.  I am a creative person but writing is not my way to express myself.

But as I continue to learn about online business, I realized that I cannot run away from writing any longer.  In order to setup a website, you need to write contents, and lots of it. Sure, you can pay people to do it, but when you starting out, you just can’t spend the money. Just thought about doing lots of writing scared me because I know I am not good at it and it takes long time to do it.  But I learned that only way to overcome this problem is keep doing it over and over again.  Just like anything else, if you do it over and over again, you’ll get better. I really want to get better at writing. So this is one of the main reason why I started the blog.

2. Document the process

Not only I want to get better at writing, I want to document the process as I take on long untested journey of online business.  I don’t know what is going to happen and not sure if I am going to be successful or not.  But I want to write down all the things I tried and tested.  So I can continue to tweak and try to make it work.  It is also good accountability for me to continue to push forward with online business.

3. Maybe I can help others later on

I don’t know what is going to happen at the end.  But if I do see some success, I want to tell others about it.  I would like to encourage others to do the same. I would like to see other success also. Because if I can do it, others can do it too.  It is my way of making internet a better place.

4. Monetize it

Lastly, I would love to somehow monetize the blog later.  Only way to monetize the blog is when you start getting traffic to your blog.  That is not going to happen when you first starting out.  Only way to bring traffic to the blog is by adding new contents consistency and bring value to the readers.  This will take time. I know that is how Pat Flynn got it started.

Why you should start a blog?

So, are you thinking about starting a blog?  You can always do it for fun, but why not take the blogging bit more seriously and think bigger.  I really recommend you to think about why you want start a blog before you start your blog.  If you can, you should make a list.  This will give you a rough idea where you want to take your blog.  It will give you some kind of path and direction as you blog. Most importantly, it will help you to push forward when things are getting stagnant.

Next blog, i’ll be write about to start a blog and most importantly, how to promote it.

  1. Hello,
    I too am working in the IT sector but more like technical support. I always had the feeling that I chose IT simply because it was the safe route that offers many jobs but ultimately I know in my heart that I do not have the passion for it. I am 24 and I am still planning to work but I will also be simultaneously working on another method to obtain passive income.

    I am honestly motivated by this blog, and the reasons why you started it are similar to mine. I think it is a great idea and would like you to keep it updated with your progress if you kindly don’t mind. I am doing one for myself too sort of like a diary on WordPress free blog. I will be following your road, hopefully we both are able to express our passion into success and passive income.

    1. Thanks for the comments. I’ve been finding out there are many ways to make money online. I am also finding out that this is very doable and many people are already doing it. I hope you also find this blog very encouraging and that you’ll also investigate and see if you can also make money online. Also when you blog is up, let us know.
