Why blogging is good for you (by Seth Godin)
When you start blogging you’ll have small numbers of people reading it – especially in the early stages.
In this video Seth Godin says: don’t worry! He argues what matters is the humility that comes from writing your blog.
What Seth means is the process of writing forces you to make your topic clear and simple for others to understand. You’re going to have to think it through and get it straight in your own head first. (In fact it’ll also help to do a little research before you start writing – so you understand the topic a bit better.)
By going through this process you’re actually learning more about your field. And pretty much training yourself to become more of an expert.
How good is that then? You learn more about your field and you get the side benefit of being seen as a thought leader by potential customers.
It doesn’t matter if you’re not the “expert” you’d like to be now. Don’t worry if you’re just starting out and you feel like a fake. Just be humble and start.
Starting the process is an important change in how you think about yourself.
And as Seth says: “if you stick with it and you may even get good at it.” (This beast called blogging.)
