Why You Should Blog

It’s a wonderful age that we live in, this era when we can publish ourselves and share our best thoughts with the world: when we can step onstage at a TedX event and reach a million people or post a video on YouTube that gets shared on another continent or write a blog post that touches just one other soul.

Here’s why I think anyone can and should start a blog:

  1. Blogging gives you a voice.  A blog gives you a place, free from censorship and criticism, to say what’s on your heart and find other people who connect with what you believe.
  2. Blogging teaches you discipline. Having to sit down once a day or once week and write is an important skill.
  3. Blogging teaches you introspection.  Sitting down to write made me realize what was important.
