We are in the Internet world, and we can blog whatever we want, as long as, it's not gonna hurt or disrespect anyone. Even in Social Networking; we follow certain rules according to what we think it's right, and as long as it's not against the norms of society. But, some people are just being disrespectful or judgmental in so many ways. We have to clarify first our main purpose why we write articles for our blog. Otherwise, it would be non-sense...
WHY DO YOU BLOG?!
To earn Money -If you blog, just solely for the money, without you, putting yourself into what you are doing. Then, time will come, people will leave your blog site. People do visit blog sites, because, they want new and fresh ideas, not just about the things that they can see on the news. They want to see your honest opinion, about certain products, services, technology or current affairs. If you are the type of blogger who just copy and paste (which is very easy to notice to most blogs nowadays), then, you might just be wasting your time. Since, this is not all about the traffic or money. But, who can blame you? It pays the bill, right?! My only point here is, your website is not like CNN or BBC, it's a blog site. So, people will visit you If you can give out your personal thoughts about everything. You can't separate yourself from what you are doing. Remember this, you are writing blogs for your readers, and not for yourself!
To Share your life, rants and thoughts -Who cares about your life? What you ate and where you went, or what you bought, right? You are not even a celebrity. But, this is the main reason, why people visit your site. Because, you are transparent, and you give fresh ideas that we do not get from other blog sites. You inspire people, so, forget about the opinions of others! Do what you love, blog about your life, thoughts and rants, If people hate your blog, they won't visit you in the first place. So, do what you love to do. But, remember this, do not judge those bloggers because, they blog for money. You can't blame them, and you don't have the right. Since, you are not the one who are paying their bills. Just keep your mouth shut. I've heard some bloggers saying, "I want people to comeback on my site because of the original articles that I write about my self and the reality of life, and not just about the things that they can see on the news." I get your point, but, don't forget, If someone is blogging to earn money, Keywords and Niche play an important role. They need more traffic to earn more money. If you do not like their blogs, then, just simply don't visit them anymore. Just don't despise your fellow bloggers, because, just like you, they have their own goals and reasons why they keep on blogging.
To vent-out -I know that you wanna release the pain, the sarcasms and hassles in life. But, try not to spread too much negativity on the blogosphere. It is your blog, I agree. But, people visit your blog, not because, they are thirsty for wrath or hatred. People want inspiration, and not discouragements. Carefully choose your words, and make it worth reading. Remember this, life nowadays is really difficult. People with limited time, will not waste time on your blog, If all they can get is hate, rejection, and any other forms of negativity. In life, we also need, "peace".
These are just the things I have noticed, some people do not know the word RESPECT. Blogs are different from one another. So, please stop comparing your blog from one to another. Blogs are not created equal, Blogs are created for different purposes or reasons. So, to my fellow bloggers, let's support and encourage each other. And, be thankful, that others can write what we can't write. Other bloggers, see what we can't see. We need a fresh outlook in life,as a blogger and as a person... To answer the question above, I blog because, I love to share my knowledge and opinions in life, and I am now earning money from it. Thank you for reading! But, how about you, Why do you blog?!
