Grandma blogs. Your neighbor blogs. A cat blogs. But why should someone blog?
To be hip? Perhaps. To tell wisdoms? Maybe. To make money? Sometimes.
Firstly, there are various kinds of blogs. I distinguish them approximately in private and cooperate blogs. I want to talk about private blogs.
People talk about their pets, work, private life or hobby. But why should they blog about it?
If you go to your local bookshop (or an online one) you’ll find always one book for nearly every topic imaginable.
OK, books aren’t that topical as blogs. But books offers mostly more information.
If it’s not about raw information then it’s maybe about personal stories. Maybe you’re interested in the life of a Second Officer or an marketing specialist. Is this the key to the why?
So, I asked me: “Sure some people are interested in the life of an marketing specialist but not in this of Average Joe.”. Would you buy a book titled “My Life As A Normal Guy“? Maybe not. People want something special, they want things they don’t have or they dreaming about. Remember Hollywood?
Thus, should you blog? Yes, you haven’t to become one a pro bloggers with 250k readers. Tell your story. Even if nobody will read it, it’s your own small biography.
