Top 8 Things I LOVE About Blogging! :-)

I've been blogging full-time for more than 8 years now, and I have to say... I absolutely love it! :D I recently shared 8 Things I Hate About Blogging (but it's no secret I'd rather be blogging than anything else, lol).

What do I LOVE so much about blogging?! Here you go...

1. It fits in nicely with my lifestyle. Being my own target market in all of the niches where I blog, there's a natural flow between what I'm doing and what I'm talking about online. I simply take pictures as I go or discuss things I'm doing, reading, buying, eating, etc every day anyway.

"Work" really doesn't get much easier than that!

2. I can blog from anywhere! I've been known to blog from planes, cars, parks, coffee shops, home of course, airports, other countries, beaches - you name it. All I need are a few portable gadgets and I'm good to go. Namely my video camera, 13" laptop and Droid Razr. I love the freedom & flexibility of working online, and the fact that I'm not "stuck" in an office somewhere.

3. It never gets boring. There are so many things to teach, share and discuss - across all of my niches and blogs. Between ClickNewz, my low carb blog and my video blog, I'm pretty much always involved in some interesting discussion with like-minded people. It's like socializing on topics I love for a living - how great is that?!

4. I have an opportunity to make a difference. From helping people start an online business or achieve financial freedom, to losing weight and getting healthier - and lots of fun stuff in between - blogging gives me a platform to inspire, motivate and educate. Being even a small part in people achieving something awesome in their lives is an incredible feeling!

5. I get to meet super cool people. Whether it's online in communities and networks, or at live events and meet-ups, I've had the opportunity to meet some of the coolest people from all over the world. Having the freedom to travel and attend events, and "networking" online being part of my business, gives me a huge social advantage. I've made powerful connections that really helped my career, but more importantly - I've made some wonderful friends. :D

6. I'm good at it! This actually came from years of practice. I've always enjoyed writing, but I wasn't a very polished writer - and really had to "learn as I go" on how to communicate effectively and market my work, among other things.

I jumped in with both feet (like almost everything else I've done) and simply figured things out as I went along, until I got in a groove and came up with a "blogging workflow" that suited me.

7. I get to work from home. I mentioned above that I can work from anywhere, but as a single parent it has been a real blessing to have a successful career and also get to be a full time mother. I quit my last real job almost 16 years ago, and have been working from home since my two kids were five months and five years old. They are now 16 and 21 years old, and I am deeply grateful I had the opportunity to spend so much quality time with them while they were growing up.

8. It's extremely profitable. There's a lot of money to be made from blogging, and a variety of income sources to explore. I focus mainly on Affiliate Marketing but also work with Brands & Sponsors. You can create simple info-products to sell, offer services, sell advertising, etc.

The possibilities are endless once you build an engaged audience!

I absolutely love my career and lifestyle as a professional blogger! :D

  2. Hi Lynn, my favorite topic. ;) Blogging allows us to show off a little on whatever we're good at and feel like we are making a difference at the same time, which you mentioned. I like that you included you are good at it. You are and it's nice you hear; we like things we are good at and that's a great way to like what we do - master it.

    I loved the video and I'm glad to see you're still passing on the bread. I'm still down 40 lbs. from staying away from most carbs.

    • But of course! She was new and a bit nervous - it happens. All of the staff at Jo's are super friendly and go out of their way to serve. And they always get a really nice tip out of me. ;-)

  4. Yeah I love blogging, I can say what I want, when I want. I hate it when people come on my blog and start telling me how to do things, I shut them down really fast!

    Love that!

  5. Blogging is fun and suits our convenience because yes we can work from anywhere we want to. We can write on different topics and there is a vast variety available for that. It is fun to share our experience, write about tips required to be applied during blogging and so much more that suits our intrest. I can simply say I love blogging too.

  6. When a person possesses good writing skills and has lots of things to share with their readers, blogging can turn very intresting and effective. I love to blog because I can write matter irrespective of any particular fixed niche. I can write anything and everything that
    I like to discuss about with my readers and get their views over it.

  9. Hi Lynn you rocks...... Your concentration and working capabilities is appreciable.
    But how can we avoid noise, peoples who are watching the notebook and waiter who came with a plate of sandwich. By the way i am also trying to these in buses and train but not ever in a coffee shop or else anywhere.
    Thanks for your excellent appreciation for us.

  10. Blogging helps us learn a lot. I love blogging because I can speak my mind and write down everything I want to share on my blog. It aids in solving the people's problems and answers their queries. I get satisfaction when I help them and exchange views with them. This job is the best as it can be conveniently done from home.

  11. I agree that there is a lot of money making in blogging. We can earn high profits from home just by delivering some worthy content that attracts more and more readers. The best part is we do not need to travel to the office for long hours and come back home exhausted. It saves the travelling expenses. Altogether we save a lot on these small expenses that delivers a bigger profit.
