Blogging is Good For You


Have you heard that blogging is good for you? Also, reading blogs can be just as good as writing blogs.

Regarding writing a blog: Scientific American suggests that writing a blog is like a diary, sharing thoughts, feelings and experiences, and actually improves memory and sleep. There are also many celebrities that blog. Check them out here.

Blogs are also a great marketing tool. Its your ideas, your products and your services. Its free advertising/publicity with a personal touch. You can promote yourself and make connections with other like minded people. Feed back is generally encouraged on blogs where other people can comment. 

When we write a blog we hope to connect with receptive readers and like minded people in similar situations. We are social creatures and want to feel engaged with trends in our field. Some other examples of different blog groups include new mums, saving money and craft blogs. The subject matter is endless. Sometimes all bloggers want is support and to share ideas, or to put a concept or idea "out there" to see if there is a reaction. Sort of like a forum entry but with more content. Blogs read almost like essays except they don't have to be so technical. I love the creative aspect of blogging. It's a freedom of expression that gets me thinking.

Regarding reading a blog: It helps us realize we are not alone. Its almost like sneaking into someones life through curiosity when they aren't looking to check in and see what they are up to. Blogs are informative in their own right . We can share similar experiences, get advice, learn along the way, become aware of new programs we weren't aware of, or learn about totally new subject.

I wish I had discovered reading and learning about blogs when I first began online in he early 2000s. Its a quick and engaging way to learn something and questions can be asked in the comments section. I cannot emphasise enough about the connections that I have made through blogging. 

If you are in the net marketing/ earning online field etc, please feel free to read some of the blogs mentioned to the right of this post. They are located just under the page views. If anyone who wants to put the FreeRewards4u blog on their blog roll I would be honored and will also do the same for your blog. Just contact me.

Don't forget that I have put together a Face Blog Group. "Calling all Net Marketing Bloggers!! This is a Group you can place your links to your new blog posts for others to read. All in one place! I guess I call it FreeBlogAdverts4U!!!" If any of you are blog writers or blog readers you are welcome to join.

Until next time....

Great post, Kris! I certainly know that reading and writing blogs has certainly been good for me.

Scientific American is right on, too. I don't remember the last time I had trouble sleeping:)

Keep up the great work, Kris!

Good morning Kris and came here because of Ken Wolff's recommendation.
Blogging is a great way to share opinions, news and even impact on issues and in terms of business, blogging has been shown to help boost the SEO of a given business, build authority in whatever you are doing and a great way to engage with your customers/clients.
On a personal level I have found that blogging can be a great way to work through problems and for some, getting support from others is a boost to relieving stress.

A good post Kris and nice to see people share good information
