7 Reasons To Start A Blog For Yourself


One of the most common questions I get asked is, “Why should I start a blog?”

When I was a blogging beginner, I was clueless and blank too.

At that time, I often thought why people run blogs?

I mean, why people would be interested in reading my stories?

Who am I?

Just an unknown human. A common girl who has her own dreams and goals to live a life of her own. It’s just so normal.

In the busiest phase of life, no one has time to go deep into other’s life.

Then, what is the purpose of starting a blog?

But, blogging is beyond benefits and gains. It is an activity that improves ourselves.

To sum up all the above questions – I’ve written below 7 reasons you should blog for yourself.

Top notch benefits of blogging


If I imagine an online presence on the internet world without a blog, it would be a big NO NO! Whether you are an entrepreneur, a digital marketer, a social media expert or an individual you will need to have a blog to survive in the online world.

Blogging

Blog is the pathway to raise your opinions and gain interaction (Image:Google)

 

Nowadays it is impossible to flourish a business without a persuasive blog that delivers to its readers. A high-quality content that sells and brings traffic to the site is the essential requirement for a start-up or a large company.

Generally, what are the benefits of creating a blog?

I consider blogging is the other word for ‘expressions’. Under the term blog, you are allowed to exhibit your thoughts, ideas, content, and everything that pop up in your mind without any restriction.

Employment chances are higher: Oh yes! You have a strong inspirational blog, chances are high that you’ll get a job. Employers give preference to those candidates who have a compelling online presence.

Enhances interaction: Blog is an online forum that allows you to interact with plenty of individuals around the globe. It speeds up your communication skills and an easy way to know people.

Get influence: Who doesn’t want to enjoy the power of people? Forget about the famous Celebs, be a promising blogger.

Freedom of voice: No one gets a better platform than blogging in view to share thoughts about anything. A blogger is free to write what he thinks.

Brings traffic to your website: A blog post that is written accurately according to the SEO requirements can bring an impressive amount of client to your business. More traffic, more deals.

You can be a writer: Blogging helps you to become a better writer day by day. It improves your writing skills and arouse your interest to learn more about it.

Become knowledgeable: A blogger is a person who always have a handful of information to share with the readers. It helps you to become an expert in the field of study.

Receive instant feedback: Gone are those times when business owners or individuals had to wait for the responses. Now, the time is about immediate results and instant feedback. You can be praised within no time or you can also have the poor feedback of your products. Everything is quick!

The above-discussed benefits are just a few, however if I keep on writing the amazing benefits of blogging it’s strenuous to stop typing. But, I will definitely write more!

A small white city in Pakistan

Murree covered in snow

February became the blessing month for the residents and tourists of Murree. I was lucky enough to land on the green hills in the season of thundery snowfall and captured the breathtaking view of Murree Mall Road.

Keep visiting this blog, I will be posting some scenic views of Pakistan.

Sunset on the silky satin

It isn’t what are you thinking?

The eccentric scenery is the wavy, unsteady portrait, I captured, the day before when I viewed Karachi’s beach known as the Arabian Sea. If you keep your eyes on the picture for a minute, you will capture the sight of drowning sun, few fishing boats and the purplish satin fabric scattered on the sea.

Sometimes, the calm portraits of sunsets give you enough motivation and the hope of awakening moon strengthens your tomorrow’s vision.

Exploring Murree – City in between mountains, trees and clouds

Murree, where people live in between the icy clouds, oak, and pine covered trees and shaded mountains

After coming over a pleasant journey of more than 1000 Km, I took a deep breath as Islamabad was still at the distance of around 468 Km. The peaceful and broad roads gave a pleasant sign that we were traveling in the reformed Punjab, which is truly far better than all the other existing provinces of Pakistan. Before this visit, I did not agree with the statement at all.

As our car entered into Islamabad region, the overall feel was good. The wide scattered roads, clean paths, cars properly walking in lanes and no rickshaws( or, less rickshaws)felt nice to eyes. In short, the city environment was bit different than Karachi. But, one common thing I observed from Karachi to Murree was the solid influence of politics on common people of Pakistan(Though I am only taking it in the benefit of the people).Everyone has something to comment, some arguments to raise and some appreciation to the leaders. Oops! I had decided to not jump into the dirty politics.

Snow fog scattered on the mountains whereas clouds provide a peaceful shade

On the roads, I was relishing the feel of cold and winters as the car geared on the Murree motorway. I remember the years when the road to Murree was unsafe, tricky and too risky. But, now highway is safer, convenient and pleasant to eyes.

The speed of car lowered down so that we can capture the breathtaking picturesque of the covered mountains. The curves of roads present the beauty of nature to the travelers and tourists. The welcoming mountains added curiosity to explore more and more. I was taking pleasure in viewing the pine and oak trees, scattered all over the mountains. These long trees were actually guiding us the path to reach our destination and I was excited to capture the scenic vistas merged with the foggy clouds. Oh, hold on! Before approaching to Murree, I had my cup of tea at first.

After covering around 50 km, here it was the road directly to Murree, the city to fall in love. You would be thinking Why I say so? Well, you have to read a little more to explore the reasons.

Lost in between the giant trees

However, there are several places in Pakistan where your heart fell down purposely and you intend to get disappear in the heavenly place to get it fixed.

Want to live on some height? In fact, on a good height, then this is the place where you should go and spend a quality time. The car went with tortoise speed toward the hills, and my eyes spotted different views. Chilled water was flowing slowly from the rocky hills, and a man couldn’t take longer to refill his water bottle. However, a skinny dog was finding the lost path to reach the top of the mountain. And, some tourists were clicking photos whereas I’d lost myself in the soothing cold wind. How could I forget those group of children who were coming back from their schools? They were so pure, strong and adorable looking.

Round mirrors all set to guide the drivers

My observations define Murree, “A peaceful city situated in between the pine and oak trees to give a delightful experience to the residents, travelers, and tourists”. That’s all about it! The roads and its curves will dodge you at times, but this is what I enjoyed the most about my trip. The beauty of nature will attract you to every sight, and you could not stop your eyes to capture the view. Small shops, fine food, hotels and fabulous people will make you feel cheerful, peppy and joyful.

Isn’t these too breathtaking? Subhanallah!

I felt relinquished and lively while I was walking on the peaceful roads. But, let me tell you these calm roads scare you at nights! Yes, it does at times. Importantly, I loved the interaction with the strangers; I was capturing priceless views with my eyes; I was feeling retreated and I was actually breathing fresh air. Isn’t that the blessings of Almighty?

Other than the joyful experience about the pleasant sight, another enchantment of Murree is Mall Road. The experience is incomparable with the other cities of Pakistan. It’s basically a street where all the amazing shops are located. I fell in love with all the handicraft shops, just regretting the things I missed. You will have different sort of restaurants, coffee and tea shops, ice cream parlors and a variety of small hotels. Oh yes, you will have groups of small children, selling boiled eggs(or garam aaanday) and Kashmiri tea(Kehva). By the way, Murree is a tourist point so it has everything to offer in all the seasons. There isn’t special about the road, but it definitely feels you connected and interacted with the dazzling surroundings.

After Murree, Nathia Gali which is also a small tourist destination is actually at the height of 8200 ft, is called as Heaven on earth. It is a town in Khyber PakhtunKhwa. It was chilly cold at the top and I was actually shivering at that point. I captured Ayubia, Patriata, Bhurban and several other small towns. From horse riding to hiking, everything is available for the tourists. Those who want to feel the splashes of winters in Pakistan, explore the heights!

When snow covers the mountains

The winter walks are always amazing, especially when you walk around with beloved people or I’d say the favorite ones. I used to spend around three hours on Mall Road with my sister. We used to have our sizzling hot cup of coffee while walking but, we never forgot to refill our pockets with the roasted cashew nuts. Thankfully, our hotel was just at a few distance!

Lots more to come from my amazing trip!
Keep traveling and don’t forget to write a blog (A personal advice to myself) 😉
