What is a blog and why should I care about them?
A blog is a place where people can write, video, draw and post images to help connect, explain and share an idea. It’s a place where a community of people can get information and share their knowledge on specific topics. It’s a helpful way for business owners to express what their business is and who they are as a person. It’s a layer of marketing and communication that allows people to learn about a product or service and about those who are supplying these products and services.
A blog is a great way to connect with an audience you may not otherwise get a chance to connect with.
I blog because I love writing (although I understand that I am not the best at it and that my grammar and spelling sometimes suck) but I like the therapeutic qualities of blogging. I have ideas just running a mile a minute in my head and I have learned that setting aside a few minutes a day to jot some of these ideas down, helps me organize my thoughts, move onto other more productive work and lets me keep a running list of all things I think I might want to write about and share. So that is a blog from my perspective.
Now, why should you care about them? Well, if you are looking for inspiration, knowledge, ideas, maybe even just looking for something joyful to read, blogs can be the perfect thing for you to invest some time searching through and find the ones that are right for you. I have a few blogs I like to follow on a regular bases because I like the personality of those who invest the time to write and share in them. I have some that I follow a little less frequently because, their style isn’t a perfect match to mine but they sometimes share some cool stuff so I tune in once in a while.
Think about it this way….perhaps, you are planning a wedding and you want some information on trends, venues, vendors etc. You could log onto Calgary Bridal Guide for tips and trends. Maybe you are an aspiring entrepreneur and you are looking for support and stories about how others made their mark, you might check out Jasmine Star’s Blog and follow along on her journey. Maybe you are a wedding photographer and you are just looking for a connection or a fresh pose and you log onto your favourite photographers blog and sweep through their blog portfolio.
Blogging is a great way to connect with likeminded people and people who share the same passions you do. It opens up doors to a community of friends who might inspire you and help you be all you can be. So Blogging is important, not just from the Blogger perspective but from a readers perspective too.
