Last week I wrote about the importance of a personal brand, and this week we’re expanding on that conversation by talking about blogging. I believe everyone should have a blog. Everyone should write because we all have important things to say, and we all have interesting perspectives to share. And sharing that perspective is no easy feat. It takes time and practice to become a good writer. Don’t think of blogging as a way to get famous, or pay your bills. It would be great to write for a big audience, sure! But the reality is, very few people will end up reading your blog anyways…
Write to write. Write to practice your communication skills. Write to practice your storytelling.
And if you are terrified, and ashamed, just remember what Ira glass said:
Start writing every day, or every week, and in time, you’ll be a skilled and savvy writer.
