There's never been a better time to start blogging and I truly believe that! I'm continuing my blogging series that I started last week. Today I'm sharing my thoughts on the job climate in general and why I think there's never been a better time to start blogging.
If you didn't read last week's blog post, be sure to check it out here. I am sharing how blogging changed my life. I walk you through 4 of my top reasons. I'm also sharing some personal stories in hopes that you might realize I'm just an ordinary girl who decided to go for it.
Before you keep reading I wanted to let you know that my friend Kate just opened her Six Figure Blogging Academy! It's only open until Tuesday January 19th. I took Kate's course and it completely changed my business!
I couldn’t think of a better person to share with my audience than Kate. She created a six-figure blog herself and then created a course that shares all of her knowledge. I took the course and my blog has never been the same! Even as a seasoned blogger I learned so much. I wish I would have had it in the beginning of my blogging journey.
Kate only opens up her course once in a while, so don't miss out!
Ok, let's dive into why there's never been a better time to start blogging!
2020 Made It Clear-
I don't know about you but 2020 taught me a handful of life lessons. One of them I realized is that nothing is for sure. Things can change from minute to minute. It also made me realize how being online had never been such a great thing! I say this lightly because I'm not trying to brag or sound arrogant but nothing changed for me when it came to my job as a blogger in 2020. I didn't have to wear a mask at work- I work at home. I didn't have to follow some new protocol, because I work at home. My audience is made of amazing people that found me online and they were still there, if not more present because of everything being online once COVID hit. It made me realize how convenient it was for people if I was online.
What if my business was based on presenting the information in person, or traveling all the time? My career would have been affected much more but since I was already online or should I say “virtual” my blog didn't miss a beat. I was still doing the same thing, but had more of an engaged audience because people were more online than they had ever been.
There's never been a better time to start blogging, because there's never been a better time to be online as a business! It's made this transition seem, dare I say seamless in a lot of ways. While I feel for so many who have been struggling with their job, having to learn new protocols and so on or lost their job all together, I haven't felt it because I had already positioned my business online as a blogger. I'm telling you this again not to brag but to encourage you to start the blog you've always thought about starting- to create a business that will stand the test of time and where the future is going. I'm telling you this because blogging has been a game changer for my family and I wouldn't be where I am today without it.
Create The Life You Want-
Another thing 2020 taught me is that life can be short and if you're not loving the life you're living than what's the point? I see so many people keep working jobs that they aren't passionate about. I get it, you have to put food on the table, but what if you could have both? Work at something you're so passionate about, while earning a living. It's possible and I'm living proof. We live in a country where you can literally be and do whatever you want and you have the freedom to pursue your dreams! It's pretty awesome.
Instead of wasting away working a job you don't love, why not create the life you want with a job you're passionate about? What if you woke up each day excited to start your day? To learn more about something, to share your knowledge with others? Your whole outlook on life would change.
There's never been a better time to start creating the life you want through blogging. To have more flexibility, to enjoy your life to the fullest, to see your family more, be your own boss and love your life- you deserve all these things. If you're not excited about the life you created, maybe it's time to build a new one. To do something you can feel good about and that makes you have a skip in your step. 2020 taught me that a lot can be stripped away but if I still have my job and love what I do, it makes life so much more enjoyable!
Being Virtual Is The Way To Go-
It's never been more apparent that being virtual as a business has a lot of perks. This last year really proved to be the year that made being virtual the best thing ever. Most people that were virtual were still able to run their business as usual and not miss a beat. It makes business so easy and convenient when you're virtual. You're able to be wherever you want and still run your business. You can still operate even when there's a pandemic happening. It's also perfect because that's where the future seems to be headed.
With everything virtual already, people are used to living their life online. From grocery shopping online, clothes shopping online, ordering food online, you name it, the online world has taken over and it's not going anywhere. People have never been more online than they are right now!
There's never been a better time to start creating the life you want through blogging, because it's a career that has only grown over the last 10 years. Blogging will continue to grow as more people seek out information online. It's the perfect time to start creating a job that can be virtual and is online. You will be creating a job that is on the up and up.
Blogging in 2021 Is SO Much Easier-
When I started blogging 7 years ago the blogging landscape looked a lot different than it does today! There wasn't tutorials everywhere on how to do things, there wasn't videos and blogs on how to blog. It was a lot of trial and error. Thankfully things have changed and today in 2021 you can find endless resources on blogging! If you want information for it, it's available to you. So many companies have created the easiest websites to set up, created countless guides, offer support and so on. Your blog could be up and running right away if you wanted. With technology advancements, new plugins, blogging in 2021 is streamlined and so much better. It's the cheapest it's ever been to start a blog! You can literally have a blog up and not spend tons of money out of pocket. You can't say that for most businesses!
There's never been a better time to start blogging than today because you're going to save yourself so many headaches compared to years ago. You'll be able to get the help you need and bypass so many things that newbie bloggers faced back in the day. You'll be able to plug and play from the very beginning.
As you can see there has never been a better time to start blogging! From getting all the help you need, to virtual being the wave of the future, to creating the life you want and loving it. Blogging hits all the marks and more.
