Here are the 10 Top reasons why you should start a blog.
1. It’s NOT too late to start a blog!
Trust me, the time is now. It is not too late to start your own blog. Blogging is only in its infancy and the online world is still fresh.
There is still so much room online to create your own presence and the best way to do that is through a blog. I know many people who were scared to start a blog because they think they are getting into the game too late.
I also know many people who didn’t care about that and started a blog anyways. Who do you think succeeded with their goals?
The ones who started, of course! The people who finally started their blogs are the people who became successful.
I know a lot of people who start their blogs and become super successful in a really short amount of time. It’s all about how much effort you put into it.
How much work you put into your blog will ultimately determine how successful you will be. So if you’re thinking about starting a blog, now is the right time.
After all, you won’t know unless you try!
I will never forget the day I started Fire and A Beer. I had no idea what I was doing and was completely clueless. Blogging seemed like such a random thing and I couldn’t really understand what it was.
I couldn’t understand how it all worked let alone how people made money from it. But I decided to go ahead and start my own!
And I’m so glad I did! It paid off ten-fold in so many ways. My reason to start a blog was simply to have a place to track my success and personal growth.
My weight loss, finances, and personal development were the main three reasons why I started my blog.
As your blog grows, you will most likely have more goals that accompany your blog. You will have bigger plans for your blogging business and that will overflow into the goals of your personal life.
I also started my blog to make money from it. I couldn’t understand how to make money from a blog when I first started but I knew it was possible.
I was ready to figure it out along the way. Plus, so many people in the world were making a great living through their blogs, so what was stopping me?
Now my question is, what’s stopping you? It’s not too late.
Right now is a great time to start a blog. There is plenty of room for new bloggers to make money, create content, attract their own audience, and find their own voice.
Having your own blog is having your own slice of the internet that is yours and only yours.
Plus you will attract, encourage and empower like-minded people. You will build a community of people who want the same things in life as you do.
Blogging is very powerful and whatever your vision is, you can attain it through your blog.
2. To make money blogging
One of the best ways to make passive income is through blogging. Passive income is money that you can make while you sleep.
It’s putting in the work now and reaping the rewards later, over and over and over again. The formula is actually quite simple to make money blogging, it’s just a matter of putting in the effort.
There are so many ways you can earn from your blog such as:
- affiliate marketing – (making money from someone else’s products)
- sponsorships – (companies pay you to try and talk about their products)
- advertising – (ad agencies “buy” space from your blog)
- creating your own products – (digital or physical)
- consulting – (creating a coaching program to help people with a problem)
Being able to make an income through blogging is a great reason to start a blog. There are so many blogs out there that are making a lot of money per month.
It is doable and you can do it too! In today’s day and age, there are so many ways to monetize every part of your blog.

3. Blogging is fun
Blogging is enjoyable work. I love each and every part of blogging.
When you are starting off, it’s very exciting. It can also be very confusing because you might not know where to start.
However, the exciting feeling out does outweigh the confused feeling. Don’t get me wrong though, blogging is a ton of work.
There is so much to do when it comes to blogging such as content planning, social media managing, email marketing, replying to comments, learning new things on WordPress, meeting new friends through your blog, and much more!
There is a lot to do but I find it super fun. You just have to stick with it.
Blogging is a challenge and challenges are good. If you’re not challenging yourself, you won’t be growing as a person or individual.
You are always learning something new and you are in competition with yourself. Always trying to reach the next level with yourself is extremely motivating.
Also, blogging about your passion is fun and blogging will help further develop your passions. It will help you dive deeper into different topics about your passions.
4. Blogging gives you freedom
When you have your own blog, not only does it give you the opportunity to earn money from it, but also gives you the time and freedom to work when you want to.
Blogging gives you the freedom to do whatever you want. If you think about it, you can always make more of everything, except more time.
Time is the most important thing because once you lose it, you can never get it back.
You can always make more money, get a better house, have a better partner, but you can never have more time.
What you have is all you have. So why waste it?
Blogging gives you the freedom to live your life the way it’s meant to live…YOUR WAY!
It also gives you the freedom to express who you are. We as humans are conditioned by society to live a certain way.
We are taught to go to school, get a job, get married, buy a house, have kids, have more kids,..then what? still, be paying off debt. Why though? Why do we have to live like that?
You are a unique and amazing soul. And you have something about you that no one else has and through your blog, you have the power to influence others for the better.
5. Your blog is yours
Your blog is yours and yours alone. It’s a piece of the internet that is JUST yours. Your thoughts and beliefs are all projected onto the world through your blog.
Your blog is your voice and your voice will make a difference in the lives of others.
This is something you might not realize in the beginning when you’re starting out, but you will make a change in the lives of others.
This is great because, in order to be successful, you’re going to have to help other people.
You will also become a better thinker and writer. It’s easy to have a bunch of thoughts in your mind but it’s much harder to condense them and condense them in a way where you are teaching somebody something else.
And by that process, you are going to become a better thinker, and writer and you are going to become an expert in your niche.
It will also give you confidence. Publishing your thoughts and feelings to the world is a little scary.
Don’t be afraid of what people will say. When you publish your thoughts through your blog, you will get positive feedback from people.
And that positive feedback is what will give you confidence. Blogging will help you grow as a person and become more confident in the person you are meant to be.
6. Blogging is affordable
I know lots of people who have started their blogs recently and already have had great success with them.
Starting your blog and how much effort you’re putting into it will ultimately determine how fast you are successful with your blog.
Starting a blog is very affordable! You can start your own blog for super cheap. It’s less than 4 dollars a month! (through my link only).
you can even start a blog on the side to see if you like it. The commitment is very small in the beginning. This is why I recommend starting one if it’s been on your mind.

7. There is lots of room for new blogs!
The internet is a massive place. So there is plenty of room to start a new blog. You may be thinking that there are lots of new blogs as well.
You’re right, there are.
However, there is only one blog that is like yours. It’s all about finding your voice and attracting your audience.
What kind of energy are you going to give through your blog?
Everyone is different and has a unique way of sharing their own experiences. I am still finding new blogs that fascinate me and that are different from my own blog.
The blogging world is so large, that every blogger you will meet along the way will introduce you to a new idea.
Don’t let the number of blogs scare you away from starting your own. Once you start your own blog, you will see that no one has what you have to offer the world.
8. You don’t need experience to start a blog
Starting a blog doesn’t require experience. You don’t have to be an expert in your field to blog about it. You just need to enjoy what you are writing about.
Most successful bloggers actually had no idea what they were doing when they started their blogs.
You learn to blog as you go along. With blogging, you will always be learning something new through lots of trial and error.
I am proof that blogging for beginners is possible! Starting a blog and learning all the ins and outs of it is what makes it fun.
You will gain lots of experience along the way.
Plus, there are so many topics you can write about. You can literally write about anything and make money from it too.
Here is a list of some of the things you could blog about:
- Small business;
- Road Trips;
- Fitness and health;
- Inspiration and advice;
- Electronics; and much more!
These are just a few of the topics you can talk about and make money from blogging about them.
9. You get to be your own boss
Another great reason to start your own blog is you can become your own boss. Blogging lets you have the freedom to set your own schedules and plan what your day and work will look like.
You get to decide what kind of business you want to run, the hours you will work, your business goals, how much money you want to make, and more.
Being in charge of your own business brings a sense of control and accomplishment.
Deciding what you do every day, handling big and small tasks, dealing with the nitty-gritty and behind the scenes, and more.
Running your own business and being your own boss is definitely not for everyone, but it comes with HUGE rewards if you put the effort in.
Plus having a flexible schedule and being able to travel whenever you want is pretty awesome in my opinion.
10. Be a leader in your industry
In the blogging world, becoming an industry leader is something you should aspire to do.
I made it a goal when I first started blogging and it’s something I will always aspire to do because it will help me keep challenging myself and keep learning how to blog better. As well as help my readers grow.
When you are a leader or expert in your field, people trust you more.
Doing so, you will be more influential which can lead to more opportunities for your blogging business.
It could lead you to making more money, signing more brand deals, meeting more amazing people from all over the world, creating new products to help your readers, and much more.
As you have read above, there are so many reasons to start your own blog. Your blog is an investment in your life and ultimately your happiness. Use them all to motivate you into finally starting your own.
