As with any self-employed business, the work itself is very demanding, but the rewards you get (not just the money) are definitely worth it. Best of all, you don't need a bachelor's degree, a web designer, or any other fancy credentials to prove yourself, and you can share your information with the world in a minute.

  2. Affordable

You can start blogging for free using WordPress.com, which provides you with a completely free solution for sharing ideas, uploading images, or writing guides, as many people do every day.

However, we prefer the self-hosted WordPress.org, which offers you more powerful features than WordPress.com. If you have started a blog at WordPress.com, it is easy to transfer it to WordPress.org.

  2. To create a self-hosted blog, you just need to buy a managed hosting, and many free themes and plugins are great to add various styles and features to your website. You can get web hosting from Hostinger for ¥8.55/month (most of the time there are promotions, the actual price is less than ¥5/month), and if you don't like hosting providers, you can also choose the domestic favorite Aliyun.

  4. improve your writing skills

Anyone can benefit from writing, it is an art and skill worth having. Since you need 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert in any industry, how can bloggers improve your writing skills?

Just like muscle strengthening during exercise, writing a blog regularly will allow you to slowly improve your writing in an invisible way, and you will learn how to translate your ideas into statements faster and make them fit your style.

Many people prefer to draft their articles on paper, but this doesn't actually save much time because WordPress provides the best writing tools.

  1. Learn new knowledge and skills every day

To write valuable content, you must invest time and resources in research, and this work involves writing a variety of content around a niche (Niche). Writing something different every day will make you smarter, which will definitely benefit you later in life. When you first start writing for an unfamiliar field, don't be afraid.

You can spend time learning about programming languages, tourist attractions, exotic cuisines, super cars, historical events and local cultures around the world. There are many online sites that offer this content and we strongly encourage you to visit sites like Treehouse, Lynda and Udemy to learn writing and marketing skills.

  1. Become an authority

It's impossible to explain how this happens, but when you publish consistently on a topic, readers will begin to see you as an expert in the field. Who knows what opportunities this position of authority will open up for you?

There are many self-taught experts on any subject offering a variety of products and services, all thanks to their authority in their respective fields. A columnist in any niche is a well-paid and respected position, an authority in any subject area opens the door to a wide range of possibilities, and blogging is the easiest way to build authority in any field.

So how do you build your authority? Start by finding your niche, then blog about it and engage in social media with other experts related to your field.

  1. How to find the perfect Niche
  2. meet new people

We are social animals and always want to form groups and find those who share the same ambition, and blogging can achieve this.

You'll meet a lot of influencers, motivators who keep you going, bosses who hire you, and even investors who want to work with you. You'll meet all kinds of different people, and none of that would happen without an online blog.
