The main reason to start a blog is not only to improve your writing, but to document your improvements. In a few months you can read your beginner posts, have a good laugh, and say, “OMG! What a rookie!” It’s a good way to gain experience. If you are in the learning phase of developing your voice and style as a writer, then what better way to experiment and get feedback from readers? See what generates the most views, what keeps them coming back? Maybe a certain post received several likes. Perhaps you don’t know what you want to blog about. Start with something you’re passionate about. If you aren’t excited about it, you won’t fool your readers. If you love to write and can’t imagine doing anything else, then start with that! Do you want to begin work as a freelance writer? Blogging is a great way to network and get your name out there. I can’t think of a more exceptional sounding board for ideas, practice, and feedback. You can’t listen to the little voice that nags, “No one cares about what you write.” How will you ever find out if your to scared to try?
