Starting a blog might seem like a lot of work. You might have a lot of doubts and questions like:

  • What am I going to write about?
  • What content will I put up?
  • Nobody is going to read my work.
  • I am not a writer.
  • I don’t know anything about setting up a website.

Initially, I had these doubts too. I had started a blog about music four years ago. I wrote a few articles on the blog. Nobody really read them. Eventually, the website collapsed due to security issues, and I didn’t bother getting it back.

Even though my first blog was a massive failure, I learned a lot from it. It taught me how to set up a WordPress website, write articles, market them, and other blog-related stuff.

Had I not started and failed at my first blog, I would have never been able to start a new one and write on platforms like Medium.

Common Myths About Blogging

Before getting into the reasons to start a blog, let us first look into some of the most common myths about starting a blog.

Myth #1: You Have to Be a Writer To Start a Blog

Most people think they must know how to write great articles to start a blog. I used to feel the same way. But that’s not entirely true.

What is a blog? Simply, it is a website where you share information, ideas, and thoughts with others. However, it is essential to share genuine and helpful information with people. Your content must provide some value to them. And, to do so, you don’t have to be a professional writer.

But why blogging? That’s a good question.

We are living in the age of information. With the help of the internet, sharing information is easier than ever. The simple answer to the “Why blog?” is sharing information. Everybody has things to share. Every single individual is unique. He or she has skills, interests, thoughts, feelings, and ideas that can be shared with others and that could even help others.
