The Secret Society of Blogging
May 3, 2016
To outsiders, the blogging world may seem vast, confusing, and at times, pointless. But to those that have made the plunge and taken on the task of blogging for whatever purpose – business, social, personal, the benefits are tremendous.
First, the community, both bloggers and readers, is HUGE and constantly growing. According to WordPress, over 409 million people view more than 22.6 billion pages each month. So obviously if there are that many readers, there has to be just as many readers, right? Right! Stats also show that bloggers produce about 58.6 million new posts and 49.9 million new comments each month. These numbers are just beginning proof as to why you need to hop on board.
Businesses have started blogging about relevant niche content (just like us), for four primary paybacks (via Hubspot).
- Help drive traffic to your website
- Help convert that traffic into leads
- Help establish social media authority
- To drive long-term results
While there isn’t any guarantee that the above benefits are bound to result from blogging, it’s a relatively easy and cost effective opportunity. Why not take a stab at it?
In addition to business benefits, there are vast personal benefits. Have you ever been so passionate about a topic that you’re just itching for an opportunity to tell the next person that is willing to listen? That’s what’s so great about blogging; you have a permanent audience, a group that is genuinely interested in your thoughts. Writing is an escape from the real world, a chance to voice opinions, feelings or even crazy ideas. We all deserve an outlet – let blogging be yours!
So we welcome you to our journey, stick with us as we navigate through this world and become permanent members of the secret society that is known as blogging!
