Why Exactly Do People Blog

We have heard of Empower Network , Wordpress Blog, Squidoo, and many other blog sites that are equipped with content ready to get ranked.

My question is why exactly do people blog?

1.Social networking.

Blogging is one way to meet other people around the world through the cyberspace. You may share your ideas with them on certain issues and ask them to give their opinions too and even let them share significant events in their lives. You may get in touch to people that you share something in common through your blogs.


Without a doubt, blogging is another way of promoting yourself. Through the blogs you post, you can present yourself in such a way that will highlight your skills to entice potential employers. It's a make or break for you depending on how you present your blogs. As you can see, many bloggers are exerting efforts to give ideas in a scholarly manner.

3.Freedom of expression.

People write blogs for them to express themselves. Sometimes, you may have something to say on a certain current event but you don't know how to say it verbally, then the best way for you to express your opinion is through a blog post. Never mind what other people might say. At least you were able to present your point of views in a dignified manner and you're responsible with it.


Most companies post blogs to promote their products and advertise their company. Through their blogs, they invite readers to give their reviews of their products thus enabling them to determine what to focus and the areas that need improvement. They also post a blog in launching a new product line.

5. Record purposes(History).

Some people are into blogging to have a record of their personal transactions. This is their way of keeping their calendar activities updated. Through this, they can easily remember what they have done previously and what must be done for the better in the future.

Mode of communication. Sometimes people write blogs to inform their family and friends abroad of the latest happenings in their lives. This is their way of letting them know and feel that they are special to them. No matter what happens, they keep in touch with them through their blogs.

These are reason why people blog.

  • This is a great blog, Devin. I remember saying years ago "No Way!"when it was suggested I blog to brand myself and promote my business.  It just seemed like the most impossible thing I could do.  Things have certainly changed for a lot of people who also felt that way :)
