Blog posts can touch on ideas we have. Blog posts can be very general and blog posts can be very technical. These are all relative though and depending on the magnitude of how deep you want to dig in will determine if you are becoming an expert in your topic. As you do more research you slowly gain more expertise. Others then view you as an authority on the topic and start to share your content. Once this happens you are establishing yourself as an authority or expert on the topic … the GoTo for advise. This is the ideal place where many bloggers want to be.

Learn Useful Technical Skills And Become A Better Writer
With having a blog and posting you will become a better writer. The more you write the better you will get. As you post you will learn that quality content is a key to getting indexed, recognized by Google. This is a whole other topic that some day I will have a post on this blog about it. Your writing will get fine tuned and you will write in a fashion that is SEO friendly. It will naturally happen. Hey this is all about learning a new skill. I am doing this right now.
Also, outside of writing skills, are the technical skills of maintaining your blog. The back office of the blog has a whole array items. While maintaining the blog, you will learn new technical skill. This will either be trial and error or by doing research. Blog writing itself is more than just writing … you tend to acquire a whole new stage of information. Knowledge is awesome to have and it is something and no one can take away from you.
You’ll Inspire And Teach Others
By you posting your content, you will inspire others. You will also teach others, through your content. The recipient will learn from what you are posting and then hopefully, apply it to their own actions. Actually, by teaching others you solidify your knowledge. If you are able to teach others, you have found a way to assure your learned knowledge is legitimate. Blogging helps other people and actually gives back. Keep sharing your knowledge and give your ideas and thoughts to others. Give something without expecting anything in return. If return is what you desire, it will take care of itself over time.
The network of followers you create are an incredible resource. If you are in it to make money, the value of this is astronomical. Never leave a bad impression with anyone and these “anyone contacts” will be in your ballpark some day.
It’ll Serve as A Personal Journal And Resume
I have found by me posting about topics, I maintain my own notes on specific topics. I am merely documenting what I am doing, but taking it to the next step and sharing with others. My thought process is that others can benefit by my notes … so why not share my content. I can go back and use it for reference, but so can everyone else. You can see what happens here … the base of knowledge will be shared by many … what is the return? People will be coming to this site to read it … if I desire I can monetize it. That is not my intent, as this is a .org site, but there are many other positive spinoffs.
Build A Network And Connect With Like Minded People
You just may think that … “Who would want to read what I am talking about?” I will tell you there are many, many like minded people like you. There are many people that are looking for the same solutions you are. If you have found a solution to a challenge … document it in a blog. This will connect you to like minded people. This will build a whole new network of contacts, that you can share ideas with. Sharing is paying it forward.
… I just encourage you to get out and get it done.
