Five Reasons Why You Need To Start A Blog!

Last Update: July 21, 2017

I just want to share my blog post with you about five reasons why you need to start a blog. Let me tell you a little story why I first started my blog.

My Story...

In 2011, I worked with my disabled adults and trained them to improve their independent skills at home; I was very tired of commuting so far away from my son within one hour and 30 minutes from my hometown. My job was extremely stressed and overwhelmed. So, I did not know what to do if I could become a stay-at-mother and work at home or not. I wanted to spend more time with my son; he was only ten years old. His father (my former husband) walked out on us when he was five years old. My budget was terribly tight since I had O-N-E income; I had no choice. I had to work full-time to earn money to support my son and myself. The worst thing was that my former husband did not pay for the child support. My 14-year-old son lived in my friend's house, located in Arizona for some reasons. My 10-year-old son and I lived in California; we felt an emptiness at home with our limited budget.

How I started my blog...

I had to figure out how to be the stay-at-home mother working at home. I had to do my research on the Internet. Here, I found some women and men started a blog to build the financial freedom and to spend more time with the family. I had a few reasons why I needed to start my blog: 1) spend more time with my family; 2) love writing what I share; 3) enjoy my free time; 4) growing my financial freedom. In March 2012, I first started my lifestyle blog, Live Laugh Love Post. (You can find my blogs listed on the sidebar from my WA profile). I was very excited to make money so I could stay home with my son. So I quit my full-time job. Today, I am a full-time blogger, writer, and Etsy shop seller. I have three blogs and Etsy shop to make extra money; my budget is pretty stable. I am happily staying at home with my husband, two sons, and five dogs!

5 Reasons Why You Need To Start A Blog

  1. Sharing your inspiration.
  2. Grow your financial freedom.
  3. Love what you write.
  4. Help your readers what you teach, write, or - share.
  5. No more 9-5 working shifts!

If you decide to start a blog right now, I want to let you know that "get-rich-quickly" blogging never happen! Blogging MUST take a lot of work and even more patience. It takes more time to grow your blog successful. If you love writing and want to start a blog, that’s good time to start a blog right now!
