Is blogging for you?

Blogging is more like a diary, a daily journal, to write an article or a post daily or every other day. You can basically write about anything, your stories, your knowledge, your business, your skills, your experiences, your expertise to name a few. But blogging takes time, a time to write and post something in your blog to keep your audience up-to-date with the topic related to your blog. The question is, do you have time? Are you willing to spend several minutes or an hour or two of your time almost everyday to blog? This is what blogging is all about, taking time to gather your brain and write something for anyone to read and be willing to share that information to almost anyone!

When you blog, you need to be current, up-to-date, and post as much postings every month to encourage your readers to come back. To help you get motivated to write as frequent as you can, you need to have some good knowledge and some skills related to the topic that you are focusing on your blog. Some peoples motivation for blogging is making extra cash, other is to help change the world, others want to promote themselves and/or their business, while others just want to share their life stories, their life.

So the answer to the question: Is blogging for you? Relies solely in each one of us, whether you have time to write, whether you are willing to share your knowledge and stories with your readers, or whether you are motivated enought to try to make money out of blogging, or just you have plenty of time to enjoy writing about your passions.

Anyone can blog, its just a questions of what to blog and if you have the time to write posts for your blog everyday or twice a week?
