To learn new skills
Here I would like to tell the truth that when I started blogging, I started it for entertainment. I could never imagine that the work I am doing for fun will turn into a full time career

The above skill you can not only learn through creating a blog and publishing content on it, the content you create also generates knowledge in you.

To document your life
Let us remember the early days of blogging. A blog where we used to write about our daily routine can be like a livejournal which may have been hidden somewhere now.
Now maybe it’s unfashionable but that doesn’t mean you can’t start a blog
Blogging is the best way to make the details of your entire life. We learn a lot from our past happiness and past mistakes. Your blog stores your memories. It helps you to know how long you have traveled. And how much you have taught so far
Note: If you write an online journal, make changes to it. You should not share anything private like you and about you because if you do this, you can be a target of hacking and you may get into trouble.
To land your dream job
Getting a dream job is every human’s dream, blogging is the only means through which you can live your dream life, it can change your working life completely.
When I started blogging, I never thought in my life that I would do content writing and content marketing in my life, but what I taught during the blogging period played a very important role in turning my dream job into reality is
I also know, from here it can lead to even greater things
Reasons to not start a blog
As I have already told you why you should start a blog
But there are some disadvantages of blogging here and you should also know why you should not start a blog
This is not a direct way to achieve success, if you are not ready for it, then it can bother you a lot further.
This is really hard work
If you think blogging and starting a blog is a child’s game then you think wrong because blogging is a very hard work
You may have seen many successful bloggers, it seems very easy to see, but it is not so that a blogger tries very hard to make a blog successful.
A blogger does more work on his blog than his day job to make his blog successful
Being in blogging requires dedication, and patience through which a blogger gets many awards one day.
This is not a solution for making fast cash
Today there are many bloggers who are blogging for money, but not blogging is not the way to make money fast if it is the reason to start your blog.
So you’re going to failure
There is no fixed income
If you start blogging then I would like to tell you that there is no fixed income in blogging
If you think that blogs can manage your life, then things will be difficult for you
You should not leave your day job during blogging because you may see many ups and downs in the income of your blog. Some months you can earn well while sometimes you will be lucky to earn a very small amount.
In fact, some pro bloggers are doing well, many a times, after giving full time to their blog, they are not able to interest their month’s target as they expect.
Blogging is a very difficult part of life. If you are ready for ups and downs, then you are probably in favor of blogging and stay in blogging.
Blogging is a lonely pursuit
If you come to the field of blogging to work from home, then you have to prepare yourself for loneliness unless you are looking for a rental place or coffee to do blogging. Do not spend your day at home unless working from home can make you feel incredibly lonely as a blogger.
The blogging landscape is constantly changing
This is a very important part. If you are blogging, then blogging is a changing process. Things in the world of blogging change very fast, no one can prepare you for this. You have to be ready as soon as you learn one thing in blogging, you have to be ready to re-learn that thing.
Google algorithm is a prime example, guest posts are always on the move.
If we talk about change, not only Google but Facebook and other social networks are also changing to keep their business intact, it may not sit in your sentiment
If you are serious about blogging, then make sure that you are ready to keep yourself with the changes.
Overuse of social media can affect mental health
Blogging and overuse of social media affects your mental health. If you use more social media, you may be at risk of your health in future. While connecting with people using social media is a positive aspect, it also has some downsides.
Eat long hours in family time
Blogging is a long journey. In the early days of blogging you can eat the time you spend with your family or you use that time for your comfort like someone At the resort!
If you go on holiday with your family, then you have to be ready to do your blogging work there, during family dinner, your attention can also go on your mobile.
If you walk in the park with your children, there may be difficulty.
You will not be able to enjoy your family and your rest time until you create a system to manage your workflow.
The real reason for getting into blogging
Blog has its own rules and disadvantages. No one size fits all
So consider starting and not starting a blog, you should weigh and consider your personality, lifestyle and ambitions.
What’s right for you what fits on you be honest to yourself what you want from your experience
