When you start to blog you have a sense of excitement that you are going to do something continuously to not only help others but also to help yourself grow. Having a blog helps refine and improve what you are already passionate about. This passion is what helps you grow from good to great. When you curate (aka share) others people's content you are helping them grow but not yourself. Having a blog allows you to grow yourself and at the same time your company. In today's article we'll discuss why it's not only important but imperative to blog to make your business stronger.
Whether you are an English major, grammar Nazi, or a regular person like I am you will improve your writing skills as you continue to write. This improvement will allow you to feel more confident as you write more. When we started three years ago writing to today we are much more confident having over 150 blogs behind us. This confidence has allowed us to improve our core focus and help others grow.
Your brain becomes more active
Like reading writing activates parts of your mind. After writing I find that I am more creative and productive during the day. I am able to stay more focused and when I look back at the days I blog I feel a lot more accomplishment. Is this because of these blog articles? Possibly. Even if it is a placebo it is a positive one that cannot be ignored.
You will become an expert in your field
The more your practice the better you get. A small improvement here and there will create a solid lasting improvement that cannot be denied. Along with becoming an expert in your field you are gaining an authority with the search engines. They see you write on a continuous subject, that others continue to go to, and support your growth.
You may just inspire others to greatness
As you write your articles and your audience grows from one (yourself) to dozens and then hundreds you just may inspire others to write and grow. Some may even just share your content as they don't have the desire to write (yet – they just might!).
Being we are a business we know the importance of the search engines. We also understand that positive and well written content means a lot to the search engines. With quality content that is added often the search engines will come back to your site more often than if you rarely or never change your website.
Writing a blog article over sharing we know will make you a more well-rounded person. We know this as we see it in ourselves every day. Writing articles have helped us improve ourselves, build our confidence, and we feel better knowing we are helping others.
