9 Top Reasons Why Writers Should Blog + Contest

freelance writing blogsYou know I believe you should have your own website or blog as a self-promotion tool – reason #1 below – but there are some darn good reasons why you might want to create a blog about something else.

  1. Using blog software you can create a website promoting yourself without a designer and that’s easy to change.
  2. A blog can bring great discipline to writing – something every successful writer needs
  3. Blogging can give you a way to talk to the world about things that are important. My WhenGrandMotherSpeaks is a classic example of this.
  4. You can establish yourself as an expert with a blog – on just about anything.
  5. Blogs are ideal for writers building a marketing platform.
  6. Blogs can occasionally lead to book publishing – it’s worked for both Jonathan Fields and for Darren Rowse (ProBlogger.net) and others.
  7. Clients who want your expertise are likely to find your blog in that niche if you’re there.
  8. You’ll get to meet other writers – I’ve got some very cool friends I met via my blogs.
  9. A blog can create a revenue stream.

Write well and often,
