I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years now and, while I don’t have a Justin Bieber-sized following (more like his second cousin, twice removed on his mother’s side, Esteban Bieber) it’s been a pretty cool thing.
Going in to it I was pretty nervous. Nervous my writing wouldn’t be good enough. Worried nobody would read it. Worried I’d run out of things to say after the first three posts I had already pre-written. But here we are, almost two years later.
So blogging’s been good for me but why should you, or anyone else for that matter, blog? Here’s 6 reasons why we, the occupants of the interweb, need YOU to blog:
1. Everyone is a 10 in some area
Don’t laugh at that. It’s true! Regardless of what you’re not good at, I can say without a doubt (having never even met) I KNOW you are a 10 in a least 1 area of your life. It may seem frivolous to some but it’s not. It’s important and has value. And we need you to share it with us. We, the collective participants of the human race, need what you have to offer. There is a pocket of our collective being that can benefit from what you have to offer, if only you will make the time to give.
2. You have something to share
Besides what you’re good at, you also have unique experiences and insights people need to hear. You’ve seen things I’ll never be able to see. You’ve done things I may never have the opportunity to do. And you’ve seen and done them all with your unique personality and history. You’re life experience add to the substance of the grander human design. You help us see what we otherwise might have missed and need to see.
3. You know something I don’t
Through your experiences, using your particular outlook and set of skills, you’ve learned. Oh sure, we all have useless stuff in our head’s like how much a stamp costs, why radio shack asks for your phone number when you buy a set of batteries, and how many licks it takes to get to the Tootsie roll center of a Tootsie pop (3). But you also have other factoids just floating around, waiting to be applied. Somebody out there needs to know what you know.
I’ll share the other three reasons in my next post. Stay tuned!
They are out there. And it’s easier than ever to find them.
