1. share your ideas

Your blog can be about whatever you desire, it allows you to share your ideas and talk about your interests to anyone who stumbles across your posts and articles. The sky is the limit, so make your blog as creative and unique as possible!

2. express your opinion

Sometimes we don't always feel comfortable expressing our opinion in reality to other people in fear of being judged or rejected, so letting it flow freely through your own personal blog is a great way to talk about topics which you feel strongly for or feel a certain way about.

3. make yourself known

Allow others to get to know you and recognise your own personal style of writing, as well as the topics you're interested in talking about. Make yourself known by regularly writing a new post or article so that others know you're an active user when they stumble across your blog.

4. create an identity for yourself

You can be whoever you want to be on your blog, there are no rules or regulations! Use this to your advantage by creating your own special identity, give yourself an interesting yet memorable username and possibly your favourite quote or motto which you live by. This will give your blog personality!

5. inspire others

Use your writing to express your opinion on certain topics but in the process, allow your words to truly inspire your readers. Give them ideas, tips and encourage them to explore different possibilities. Use your blog to give others that extra bit of motivation and act as an inspiration to your readers!

6. discover like-minded people

Discover like minded people by searching for similar blog topics as the ones you're interested in writing about. Have a read of their blogs and check out their main page to find other articles which you may also like to read while you're there!

7. outlet for thoughts, feelings & emotions

Starting your own blog is similar to writing in a journal or diary every so often, it allows you to disclose your thoughts, feelings and emotions and gives them a healthy release. This is much better than keeping it all bottled up inside!

8. develop your writing skills

Practise makes perfect! Write about anything and everything whenever you have the time or a moment to spare. You will get better at writing over time, the more you write and the more you post. Just as an author increases their writing skills when they create a novel, you will increase your own writing skills through your blog.

9. give helpful advice

Any kind of advice you have is worth sharing to the hundreds of people which will find and read your blog. Blogs are great for picking up tips and small pieces of advice, which can be incredibly helpful in a variety of common situations which we all go through at some stage or another.

10. share your experiences

It doesn't matter what kind of experiences you have had so far, big or small, just that you use your blog to share these with others and it's a good idea to wrap up each post by saying what you learned from that particular experience, what it taught you and why it was an important learning curve in your life.
