I blog every day I can, because admittedly there are days that I miss. I generally get out 5-6 articles a week though, and some people may think that it’s a waist of time. Well its actually very fun, and let me tell you why people do it in the first place.
Blogging, keeping a diary, writing in general is an acquired taste. There was something motivating that person to start writing, and at first most people think that what they wrote was garbage. Everyone writes a diary, blog post, or story at least once in their life. What we first write almost everyone considers garbage within the next 48 hours, and those who go back and try again after they have failed are the ones who will probably become writers.
You may notice that I said “probably”, and this is because after you try again there are other so-called “tests”. Do you find it boring, do you find it useless, and do you find it stupid. If your answer to all of those is no then your probably a writer.
The reason why people blog though after all the tests is the source. Whatever first motivated you, or encouraged you to write is the reason we started in the first place. The most common reason is: money. It’s a very common thing for people to see bloggers, and youtubers that have money, and for the viewers to think that they can then start a blog, or YouTube channel and make all that same money easily.
NOTE: The easiness level is kind of weird though. Some people are Great on YouTube, and have great blogs, though they may never get discovered. While some of the more crappy ones may become famous overnight. It really isn’t as fair as some think.
If they didn’t do it for money then they may have wanted to impress someone, or possibly fame. Lots of people think fame, and fortune is easier than it is with a blog, but don’t continue writing after their blog doesn’t get all the traffic they thought it would.
So long story short: A reason people blog is because we were encouraged, or motivated into it in the first place. Then after we started we liked it, and continued.
