Reason Why I Am Blogging

Why blog?

I don’t know if you ask this question when you were starting your own blog but I do. The reason why I start my blog is to have a site that I can call my own. Funny as it is but when I was in college I have this certain domain written in my books and notebooks. But until now I haven’t bought this domain simply because I don’t think it’s a good domain name. Go back to question. As of this typing I have practical reasons why I am still blogging.

There is Money in Blogging

At first I didn’t know nor believe that there is money in blogging. But after getting my first payment through blogging I could not help but smile from ear to ear. I was encourage to make another blog and when I discover that a blog with own domain attract advertisers I decided to give it a try and good thing I did as I start receiving emails from DA’s. There are actually lots of money making strategies related to blogging such putting the Google Adsense and Amazon in your blog sidebar but for some technicalities that I didn’t know the two mentioned strategies didn’t work out in any of my blogs.

With a lots of business owner who opt to market their businesses through the word-of-mouth marketing I don’t see any reason to stop blogging.

There is Freebie in Blogging

Just recently I received a box full of goodies. Nothing beats the excitement when you get to received good quality and expensive products without paying any penny. Joining contest is another way in getting freebies in blogging. Unfortunately I am not lucky when it comes to raffles and contest so one day I feel tired joining the contest hosted by fellow bloggers.

A box full of goodies for free 🙂

Blogging Enhance Writing Skill

Honestly, I didn’t imagine that will have the opportunity to air my thoughts and rants in the World Wide Web more so if it is in English. I admit, I am not confident with my grammar and writing skill but it didn’t stop me from having my own site/blog. When I have time and re-read my previous post during the first year of my blogging journey I would say that I am improving little by little.

Blogging Opens a Lot of Opportunity

Through blogging I’ve meet a lot of mommies from different part of the world. I meet new online friends. I can share my thoughts and rants to the whole world.


  1. blogging will certainly widen one’s world. in fact, i am trying to also monetize my blog. welcome to bc bloggers by the way 🙂

  2. You said them all .I earn a little but not enough and happy with it. I am happy to have money in my pp account and freebies once in a while.

  3. I totally agree with you. But, in my case, I haven’t earned yet from blogging. Would you mind sharing how can I earn thru my blog aside from direct advertisers?

  4. The main reason I started blogging is to earn a little money while I stay at home and take care of my kids. I did not know back then that it would be one of my loved hobby. Now it is more about personal satisfaction than earning money.

  5. blogging is indeed fun. we not only get paid to what we do, we get freebies and meet a lot of people online worldwide. Especially if you live in America, you will get a lot of freebies like i do 😀

  6. I too was very skeptical about blogging…but now I’m enjoying it and lov’n it specially when I get product reviews and other opportunities.

  7. I also agree with you in blogging you can gain many things…..I already 5 yrs old blogger and I got a lot of stuffs out of blogging…I even bought a land in the Philippines hehehe.

  8. Blogging certainly opens up many opportunities whether financially or self-fulfillment. I’m glad I am blogging as well.

  9. I consider myself as newbie on blogging.I am excited on what blessings awaits me.I want to explore and learn so much from blogging.

  10. very true and i’m proof. i’ve been blogging for almost 6 years now and i’ll never get tired of blogging.

  11. I have questioned myself the same before. And yes, blogging enhaces writing skill. I have also met new cyber friends & readers who inspire you to become a better blogger because they’re actually following your posts. 🙂 And oh, freebies are the highlight of blogging!


  12. I do not know if I do not blog 🙁 The money helps my family especially in the Philippines. I do not need to ask my husband about it plus I can buy stuff for my kids as well 🙂 Blogging rocks!!!

  13. I started blogging because I was a frustrated novelist. LOL. 😀 And I did not know that I can make money off it until 4 years ago when my aunt, who also blogs told me. 😀 I don’t earn a lot from blogging but I still do it because like I said, I’m a frustrated novelist, hahaha and earning extra from it is also awesome. 😀

    And you’re right, blogging helps to improve writing as well as grammar. 🙂

  14. joining giveaways is one of the best part of blogging! i am too fond of them that i turned my oldest blog into a giveaway blog. i just wish i can update it sooner. my main blog, as well as the other new ones are taking most of my time now.

    blogging is also therapeutic + since I am with a toddler 24/7, it provides me my daily dose of grown-up conversation, even when i am just talking to myself most of the time! 😉

    hooray for blogging! 😀

  15. when i started blogging 8years ago, I never ask myself that question. i was kinda tired of writing in a journal, so I thought i would start writing online. I used to blog in xanga, but its not for everybody to read. its kind of a private online journal like a diary where i can say anything i want, =D i learned about paid blogging after 2years since i started. =)
