It allows you to express yourself.
Writing is the simplest and rawest form of art. Before any editing or proofreading is done on your write-ups, and even by then, your writing is a piece of your emotions shared with your audience.

It boosts your confidence in speaking your thoughts.
It’s true that not everyone is gifted with the confidence to voice out their thoughts. What’s also true is that this kind of confidence is something you can learn, which means it is a gift that is yours for the taking if you are willing.
Confidence in speaking comes naturally when you know how to express your thoughts and emotions. Writing does that for you.
When you write and you post it in your own blog, it gives you a sense of individuality and responsibility in voicing out your deepest thoughts. Thus, you give yourself a confidence boost and you are motivated to write more.
Learn more about yourself and gain new knowledge.
One important thing that you should learn about writing and blogging is that – although you are sharing your knowledge and thoughts with your audience.
You are actually also learning more yourself. We all know that when you blog, especially factual write-ups, you will need to have resources for your facts.
This is done through research. When you research, you can definitely learn more knowledge than just the subject you want to tackle and that is always a good thing.
You see, not all blogging means money, boosting business popularity and networking. Once in a while, write something that you feel highly interested in without the objective of money or gaining more followers. It is the essence of writing in the first place. Write from the heart.
