There was a time when writers had to be on the look out for publishers to sell their write ups or at least a newspaper or magazine that could acknowledge and approve of their articles. Today, technology has grown in such a way that you dont have to satisfy one specific person to prove your writing talent. You could create your own space and tell the world whatever you want to and gain their confidence.
Among all the social media platforms, blogging is one place exclusively for content writing.
There is no educational qualification required to become a blogger. You could either have it as a hobby, a practice platform or a portfolio.
Why should a writer take to blogging?
- Blogging is the best way to have a tab on your worthy write ups that could be used as a portfolio
- Blog is like a book where you could direct anyone from the world to your website
What is the monetary benefit in blogging?
As it has already become your passion for writing and posting on your blog, you could build your profile and get a good number of followers. A good number of followers means that the site has good traffic, sufficient enough for advertisers to make use of.
Google Adsense is a means of paid advertisement from google. Google pays you based on the number of clicks that a particular ad gets. A small disadvantage with this is that the money per click will be very less and that you could acquire it only after you have accumulated a good sum.
How can blogging be a profession?
As you have built traffic to your website, it acquires credibility since the audience start recognising your articles worthy to read. Meanwhile, you too would have acquired a style of writing that is pleasing to read. This is when you can start writing promotional articles for brands. Bloggers with good traffic are paid for promoting brands. This is how you could build your career in blogging.
Blogging creates avenue for you to connect with more people who could offer you writing assignments based on their impression on your writing skills.
And, as your popularity increases, so does your experience and payment per article. By now, you get to figure out how exactly the content writing business works and how you could handle clients and make money.
