You might want to consider writing a blog because it can make you a better thinker. The process of writing can cause you to think far more deeply about important things. It can help force you to think through the implications of current events, changes in the law, or something else that you’ve noticed. Thinking these things through to the point at which you write a good article can solidify and improve your knowledge and understanding.
If your blog offers valuable advice. That’s a wonderful thing for the world and can be good for your business. People are searching for answers. You almost certainly have something “uniquely you” that may connect with someone. Write about something that you have figured out or are actively working to figure out.
I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like recently because I started out writing an article that kept on growing and has turned into a full-length book. The book should be published by the time that this article goes to print. Creating an entire book was unexpected, but it speaks to the process. In this case, the book is about Blockchain. I started out with a fairly limited understanding of the subject, which required me to do substantial further research to be able to produce my article. Writing is one of the best ways there is to improve your knowledge.
For most people, the most difficult part about blogging is getting started, but this doesn’t have to be hard. Pick a topic that you think is important. Ideally, this is something that you believe people need to know and might be searching for. Then write from your experience and write from your heart. You just might find the words pouring out of you. Sometimes my articles take a while to write. I wrote this article in well under an hour.

Your blog doesn’t need to be perfect. Focus on getting your thoughts written down, then share with some friends to review. You can get valuable feedback that will improve your article and can improve the knowledge and understanding of you and your reviewers. I commend you to write and see what it will do for you and your business. As I write this article for my blog and for a magazine article, I hope that my words of encouragement connect with you and inspire you to blog today.
Now that I’ve completed my first book, I find myself asking if you should write a book. If you have something to say that needs an entire book to say it, go for it, but realize that it may be harder to finish than you expected. Finishing this book was far more difficult than I expected. Though, in my case, I picked a doozy of a topic for my first book and had to perform considerable research. It was also incredibly difficult to explain a complicated subject in a way that hopefully anybody could understand it. It was a ton of work, though I am very happy with the result.
If you think you might ever write a book, absolutely blog first. Writing shorter blog articles for many years has really helped me become a far better writer. It helped me find my voice and improve my writing skill. I am sure that it will do the same for you. I look forward to reading your blogs soon!

Lastly, my blog article that grew into a book is called “The Blockchain Code” and is available on Amazon. Dave Kinsey
