1. Its your portfolio


If you are going to submit your application to future employers, always include your blog together with your e-mail and contact details. That way they will know what you have been up to besides the details you have input on your resume. A blog is a great way to show your actual skills to get a job. Lets say you blog about Search Engine Marketing, then you apply to an advertising company, chances of getting hired is higher than those who have no blogs.

2. It shows your determination


If you have been reading from my past articles, I always say that blogging is not easy and tough. To be successful online there a lot of requirements like, consistent posting, writing quality articles, the willingness to learn everyday, networking to other people etc... all of that requires a lot of determination. 

Having a successful blog is a plus point for your future career because you learn to be patient and persistent. Veteran bloggers always know that blogging is a marathon, not a sprint.

3. You create your own network


Blogging attracts readers, and it creates your own network. Sometimes you will encounter professionals related to your field,  and you should build a  solid relationship them, because you will learn a lot from it and will gain you exposure.

Use social networking sites like Twitter to promote your blog and start gaining attention to them by:

  • Guest post to their blog
  • Offer guest posting to your blog
  • Write a review about their books or e-books
  • Mention them in a blog post with a link.
  • Collaborate with them on future projects

I would like to inspire young students to start their own presence online. Instead of playing DoTA a lot I suggest blogging because it opens new opportunities and of course makes money. I know a lot of bloggers as young as 14 years old already earns more money than I am.

But keep in mind that you blog not for money but to help people and that should be your main goal as a blogger.
