Have you ever wondered why you should start a blog?
Starting a blog is one of the best side hustles that you can start!
When we tell people that we make money online, people often look sideways at us and ask ‘are they porn websites?’ – which is pretty hilarious!
We have the last laugh though, because blogging has had a massive impact on our lives – financially and personally.
We highly recommend starting a blog to anyone that wants to try a new hobby or wants to increase their income.
Here are some of the reasons that we think YOU should start blogging today.

5 Reasons Why You Should Start a Blog
1. To Make Extra Money
Blogging is an amazing way for you to make extra money. A blog can help you create a business that has very low overhead and almost no startup costs! Your blog can be used to help improve your ‘real world’ business or it can be a new source of income.
Blogging earns us thousands of dollars extra every month and our income is steadily growing. We have been able to leave our day jobs and live wherever we want to. The flexible schedule that blogging has allowed us is invaluable and we feel very blessed that we can live where we want to. We get to spend all our time together and truly enjoy life.
Most bloggers make anywhere from $1000 per month to $200,000 per month. We learned our strategy from a very successful blogger who makes over $1,000,000 every year from her successful financial blog.
2. Learn New Things
Blogging about different topics can help you rapidly become an expert in almost any subject. Even about subjects that you had no interest in! For example, we learned about the different causes of hair loss when we bought a hair loss remedy website. You will often become even more passionate about your blog topic than ever before!
3. Be Part Of The Blogging Community
The online blogging community is amazing! I have made so many friends since I started interacting on Facebook with other bloggers.
You can interact with other people like yourself, or even reach out to the famous bloggers that are already very successful. We highly recommend joining some Facebook blogging groups to start discussing blogging with other people.
4. Tell Your Own Story
Blogging allows you to communicate your own story to the world. We all have a story to tell and there are millions of people out there that want to hear yours.
It doesn’t really matter what your blog is about – the information you send out into the world will likely help people in some way. People may just enjoy reading your posts or learn something that changes their life forever.
We discuss financial topics like how to make more money. Hopefully the posts that we put out help and motivate other people to take control of their finances as well.
We like to talk about personal finance so that we can help others. For us, we have learned a lot (and still learning!) about blogging, extra income, personal finance and everything else – all from other bloggers.
5. Be In The One Percent
You can be in the 1%. No, not the financial 1% ! You can be in the 1% of people who use the internet who actually create new content and publish it on the internet.
This can add a very interesting dimension to your life as you immediately become part of a minority group. The vast majority of internet users never regularly create content.
This is an amazing opportunity to add your own creative content to the internet that will survive potentially for ever!
It is amazing that you can write your story, promote it and literally millions of people all over the world can read it, interact with it or even purchase something from your page.
