I am not a writer neither a pro-blogger. When I started blogging, I was curious about it, just because someone told me that I can make money from blogging and it all started just as an experiment.
At that time I had no reason to start a blog other than making money, but when I published my first blog post and got good responses from my readers, I discovered many more valuable reasons to keep blogging.
Reasons to Start a Blog in 2018
Following are some of the reasons to start a blog today
It helps you express yourself
Whether you are an extrovert who loves to share his thoughts, connect to new people, make new friends or an introvert who has millions of thoughts in his mind but doesn’t feel comfortable to share them directly with others; blogging makes it easier for both of you to express yourself.
Growing your business with a blog
Business websites are static contents which don’t help your customers to stay up to date about your product or services. Starting a blog about your business lets people know more about you and your product. As I heard somewhere&url=https://www.techapogee.com/why-start-a-blog/" data-link="https://twitter.com/share?text=People+buy+people%21+Not+products.&via=">&url=https://www.techapogee.com/why-start-a-blog/" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">People buy people!
