Blogging isn't just about generating income, promoting a cause and providing information. Most people on the blogosphere mainly do it for the fun of it! These bloggers enjoy blogging simply because they want to express themselves and also keep in touch with their friends and family.
You can have fun in blogging too!
In this article, we are going to discuss the ways you can make blogging fun, rather than a chore.
For most people, staying in touch with their friends and family is what drives them to blog and update their blog regularly. For those who stay far away from their friends and family, getting in touch by phone or regular visits, or even email may not be enough to keep them updated of their daily lives.
It is also difficult to communicate with different people at once. By having a blog, a person can still stay in touch with many people without having to make repeated emails or phone calls.
Blogging allows you to express yourself freely. You can choose to put anything on your blog, be it photos, music, videos, or daily happenings in your live. Your friends can then enjoy it at their own time and interact with your other friends too, through tag boards or comments posted on blog posts. It is indeed a great way to keep in touch with many people at the same time.
Blogging also allows you to keep track of important events in your life. Examples of such events you may wish to document include a pregnancy, weddings, vacations, sporting events, birthdays, graduations or school plays. The list could go on, but you get the idea!
Your blog could also be used as a scrapbook
As I have said earlier, blogging gives you the space to express yourself. Some people write poetry, songs, short stories or give commentaries of political events etc. You can virtually write anything that you want on your blog.
What's more, is that you can choose to keep your blog private if you are not comfortable with strangers reading your stuff. By keeping your blog private, you can also allow only your close family or friends to view it and this is sort of like keeping a diary or journal. It puts you at ease to know that you can put down your innermost thoughts and feelings or frustrations without letting anyone know.
Making your blog public is not a bad thing too. Sharing your opinions and thoughts, allows you to reach out to other people on who may have the same interests or problems.
It is important too to make sure that while your blog is your personal space to express yourself, writing certain things may offend other people and may result in more potential problems. Hence, be cautious of what you are writing or putting on your blog and discern for yourself, what may be offensive to others and what's not.
