Why are you blogging? Answer this question before you begin to blog and you will avoid wasting your valuable time.

There are many questions you should ask before you start your blogging journey but the answer to this question: “Why are you blogging?” Is one of the most important questions. The answer to this question is the foundation of your blog, upon which everything else is going to be built.

When I started my blogging journey, I did not realize the importance of knowing why I was starting a blog. I added content as if my blog was a personal diary … when in reality, I wanted to use my blog to attract visitors who would see the value of becoming my client. Unfortunately, it took months for me to figure this out.

Why do you want to start a blog?

Here are some reasons why others blog. You may find your reason listed. If it’s not, please share your reason in the comment section.

  • Sharing their personal life story
  • Sharing business
  • Journaling a hobby
  • Sharing family life
  • Affiliate marketing.
  • Network marketing
  • The love of writing
  • Helping others with their business growth
  • Helping others with their personal development
  • Building your list
  • Writing content for a book, articles, or a program?
  • Creating a product to sell to your subscribers
  • Promoting your book, product, or coaching service
  • Review products/services
  • A combination of topics

Even though you may change course along your blogging journey, some bloggers do, it’s important to have a focused intention when you begin. You will know the audience you’re addressing and the content you need to post for them.
