Just recently I published a blog post on my other blog, MonetizePros, titled how to create a blog. In that, I talk about a ton of different reasons, why you should start your own blog, the 7 reasons you haven’t done so and then I go ahead and show you how to actually do it. Why? Because I believe it’s super important.
I’ll get into the exact reasons in a little bit, but first of all – how did this blog change my life? In so many ways.
Although I never really wrote much on this blog publicly, I did a lot of writing. This helped me get into the habit of writing my thoughts down daily and eventually made me into a much better writer. When I first started out, I hated the process and was super uncomfortable with any form of writing. Now when you look at the article I published on MonetizePros, it’s over 7,000 words long!
Writing is now natural to me and I’m not afraid to share my thoughts with the world. Actually, I’m excited to do so. Before starting IM Livin’, I was afraid of what people were going to think. The negative comments would make me feel like crap and that’s part of the reason I have hundreds of unpublished blog posts for this site.
That’s not the case anymore. You’ll see that my Facebook is full of random thoughts, you’ll see super-genuine posts on MonetizePros, my twitter and other channels, even though some of these subjects are super controversial.
IM Livin’ wasn’t only good for my writing though. It worked wonders on my network. This little blog has led to so many amazing relationships, it’s unbelievable. I cannot imagine what would’ve happened, if I actually took this thing seriously when starting it. I’ve barely published anything, the website looks horrible and I’ve never edited a single article.
I’ve met amazing friends thanks to this, gotten once-in-a-lifetime business opportunities (that I’ve taken), been offered a book-deal (that I declined) and simply had a good time. Not many people read this particular blog, but some of the posts I’ve published here have been serious breakthroughs for me. They’ve changed my mindset and made me into who I am today.
At the same time, I know it’s changed many people’s lives as well. People who have been inspired by my story and have taken action on it. That’s one of the most amazing feelings for me and that’s why I spent the last two months teaching people how to create a blog at MonetizePros. I want to show people that it’s not that difficult, it’s not that expensive and you CAN do it.
For a tiny-tiny investment, you can become a much better person, a better thinker, expand your network, start making money online, have the opportunity to learn so many new things and change other people’s lives.
That’s the power of blogging.
