7 Awesome Things You’re Losing Because You Aren’t Blogging

by Deepak Kanakaraju on August 5, 2014

You may have never started a blog. Or you may have started one, the blog didn’t get much traffic or comments – and you forgot about it. To manage a blog and its audience is no simple task. But the benefits of blogging far outweighs the trouble that goes into maintaining it. If you have not been motivated enough to start a new blog or resurrect your old blog, this post will give you enough reasons to do so. Here are 7 major benefits of being a blogger…


1. You Organize and Document Your Ideas Better

You learn many things you go through your professional life. But the problem is that unless you document it somewhere you are going to forget most of the things you learned.

A lot of people have journals where they have written several pages of notes. But we know what happens to those notes.

The problem with taking notes:

  1. They are not organized and presented well (the motivation to organize it well doesn’t exist because no one else is going to read it).
  2. It gets lost over time or just buried somewhere digitally or physically.

In learning arenas like training and seminars, you would have seen a lot of people take notes sincerely. Even I have done that, but more often than not such notes get lost and we never take a look at it again.

When it comes to blogging, it solves both the problems. When you know someone else is going to read it, even if it is a very small audience, you will organize and present your ideas in a better way.

Most of the bloggers who have had massive success in blogging have confessed that they started their blogs with with a collection of notes to themselves and a small audience.

When you have an audience you want to make sure that the website doesn’t go down or gets lost in the cyberspace. That way you are preserving them for life. Content management systems like WordPress make it easy to organize the posts by time, categories and tags. Automatic backup applications would take the backup and make sure you never lose the data.

preserveAlso the blog will generate at least a little revenue and you would never lose something that pays you.

This blog DigitalDeepak.com started as a place to organize my thoughts, learning and experiences. I didn’t worry or think too much about having traffic and readership initially. After a while people found my content and they discovered that it was extremely useful, shared it, came back to my newly published posts and started leaving comments. Now I have more than 2,000 readers!

Write, and the Traffic will Come

If you worry about having traffic and readership (which you won’t have initially anyway), then it becomes very hard to motivate yourself to continue blogging consistently. Its ironic. Those who do not care about traffic and readership are then ones who end up getting it – because they focus on the most important thing: Writing.

Writing is what adds value to a blog. Traffic is a result of that writing. So you need to focus your energy on creating value than the after effects of that value creation.

2. Your Writing & Speaking Skills Improve

The only way to get better at writing is to write more. I remember the days when I used to write and edit an article several times and I still wouldn’t be satisfied with it. Nowadays most of the blog posts I make are mostly first drafts with just a few edits.

speakerAnother amazing discovery I made is that my speaking skills also improved when I got better at writing.

Writing and speaking are not much different. When you keep writing a lot of content, you learn to organize the thoughts in your mind better and bring it out in a consistent flow.

The improvement reflects in speaking. Nowdays when I speak in a seminar / training program, the words flow more smoothly and there is less of Uhms and Ahs. Almost no broken sentences. That’s why most published authors are almost always good speakers. They speak naturally and effortlessly even in front of large audiences.

When you become a great author, you become a good speaker. When you become a great speaker, you become a good trainer. When you become a great trainer you become a thought leader in your field. Isn’t thought leadership something that we all want?

3. Your Brand and Network Expands

networkingThere are people who just have phone numbers and email IDs. Then some people have a few social media profiles like Facebook and Twitter. Some people have 10+ social profiles and may be a profile page in their company website. Some have media coverage in several news publications. I guess you would agree that wider their digital footprint – higher is their brand value.

Having a blog with good readership trumps all this. When you write and people visit your blog to read, share and comment you have the opportunity to expand your network. As your network expands, your brand value increases.

Blogging is not just about publishing. It is more of a conversation – a one to many conversation. Since blogging happens in real time, the comments you get on your blog is like a forum discussion.

When you have a good readership base, your readers will feel that they they know you personally. I have been blogging for more than a year now and I haven’t met many of my readers. (May be you are one of them). But when I meet one of my blog readers in person, we connect instantly because they know me better.

That’s a great way to make new friends. If blogging existed in the times of Dale Carnegie, he would have definitely included Blogging as a chapter in his book – ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’. I have won and influenced more people in my life with blogging than any other method accessible to me!

4. You Become an Expert, Organically

The human mind makes connections in mysterious ways. Our brain finds short cuts to make associations. For example, it is easy for the mind to think: If all experts are teachers, then we perceive that those who teach must be experts.


And it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. You teach, people listen, they perceive you as an expert and you actually become an expert.

When I started with my Digital Marketing career I was not an expert. I was not the top in my field. But I definitely knew more than most people knew about digital marketing. I shared it without hesitation. Whenever someone asked for help, I helped them.

As time went on, I learned more and people started calling me an expert than the other way round. I didn’t need to tout my own horn. There could be marketers who are better than me. But I help more people than the other marketers do. Because I help my audience, they reciprocate by calling me an expert. Then I start believing it that it is true. So I do become an Expert.

That’s how you become an expert – organically. Without the need to have an impressive work profile or fancy degrees. I would any day choose a human to call me an expert than trust a piece of attractive well printed paper with my name on it. (a.k.a. Certificate).

5. You Create Something, You Become an Artist

Blogging is the fastest and easiest way to get your hands dirty is actually creating something that people will admire.

createBut you may ask, why create something in the first place?

Because humans have an inbuilt need to express themselves and be unique. That expression can only come from being an artist.

Marketers give so many product options to the consumers because we understand that most people do not create. But every human being has the need to be unique in their social circles. Most of the people try to satisfy this need to be unique by choosing things to own and consume.

There are so many choices for apparel, automobiles, computers, phones and all the other toys. Say for example, Bob chooses to buy a Red car, a Dell laptop, only wears jeans and t-shirt, uses an iPhone and has a unique hair style. Bob is trying to differentiate himself from the other humans and is trying to be unique.

But Bob will never feel unique enough no matter how many unique choices he makes because these are predetermined choices made by the marketers just to satisfy the masses who do not create. This need to be unique and different can be satisfied only through creation of something out of thin air.

Building a new business, giving birth to a child, making a painting, creating an architecture or writing a blog post are things which put you under the category of an artist.

That’s why you should CREATE. That’s how mankind evolves.

Real artists express their uniqueness through creation rather than possession & consumption. When they have felt the rewards of creation and its admiration, they will never fall into the earthly trap of owning more and different things again.

In fact, when you own more things, you get envy and not admiration. That’s one of the reasons why people never get satisfied with owning more things. You would have experienced this yourself. You bought something really cool, your friends said it was nice… then no one cared.

You can see very successful and rich businessmen who keep creating amazing things will not focus much on owning “cool” things like the latest sports car or a fancy home. They are just focused on value creation. Because the ‘kick’ that you get from creating is the ultimate kick. We are playing God here. We are bringing things in existence which only existed in our imagination before.

When you write a blog post which has unique ideas, that kind of post spreads, people share it, like it, comment it and it will give you an unmatched sense of satisfaction.

You will start experiencing creation and admiration in a minimum viable way without sacrificing anything else… like having to quit your job to start doing something.

6. Your Personal Brand Rubs Off On Your Company’s Brand

I talk about blogging as a personal branding tool, mostly. But blogging also helps in marketing your products and services. Your personal brand helps get the audience, they find out about your companies and their offering, they may buy them!

brandOne solid example of a person who is leveraging his personal brand big time is Neil Patel. He owns the companies Kissmetrics and Crazy Egg. Both the companies have their own marketing and customer acquisition channels – but his personal blog QuickSprout.com is so famous that it acts as a marketing tool for his companies.

Even for brands, it is better to connect with an audience through people than their ‘Official Brand Identity’.

There is no doubt that content marketing works. It is the talk of the town and everyone is trying to publish content, attract audience and use that attention to market their products. But most of the content marketers fail.

Content marketing doesn’t really work in the long term if you do not establish a connection with your audience. Usually the connection is made by a human and rarely by a “brand”. People want to connect to the authors behind the content and not the logo / brand identity.

For example, Moz.com does great content marketing. But they also make sure that the people behind those content are showcased properly so that the readers can connect with them and become their followers. I do not read all the posts published on Moz blog but I definitely pay attention to it if it is posted by Rand Fishkin, the man behind Moz. I don’t use their software but I follow Rand.

7. Your Blog Becomes a Source of Additional Income

There are many entrepreneurs who have adopted blogging as a business model. Many blogs today are less of blogs and more of online publications with newspaper or magazine style publishing. I am not talking about blogging as a business model here. This post is mostly about personal blogging. It is not about making your blog as a primary source of income. That’s why it is last on the list.

Though your blog can be an additional source of income, it need not be small. I know people who work at full time jobs but make more income from their blog in a semi-passive way.

Apart from all the benefits of blogging mentioned above, your blog can be a source of direct and indirect income when it reaches the critical mass of readership. I have not yet monetized my blog directly, but I will when the time is right. The direct sources of income from blogging can include the following.

incomeDirect Income Sources:

  • Selling display advertising
  • Letting someone sponsor your rich media content
  • Promotion of products through Affiliate Links
  • Generate and sell leads for other’s products/services
  • YouTube/Video channel advertising

Indirect Income Sources:

  • Opportunity to land on a book deal
  • Invitation to become a writer for another blog/magazine
  • Getting hired for seminar, training or guest lecture
  • Getting a new job or consultancy offer
  • Promotion of your company’s products & services

The above list is not exhaustive. But it definitely gives you an idea about what kind of opportunities blogging can give you.


I hope this post motivated you to start blogging. Even if you got a small feeling that you should get started with this soon, I believe the post has served its purpose.

Would like to hear your feedback.

Deepak August 6, 2014 at 7:22 am

Great to know you’ve got inspired 🙂 Looking forward to the posts on your new blog 😉


Vikram Kanakaraju August 6, 2014 at 2:26 pm

Very interesting post, Deepak! Next time someone asks me what is the point of having a blog, I will simply point them to this article! 😉


Bishakh Rout August 6, 2014 at 10:36 pm

I am an active blogger, and I do agree with all the points that you have mentioned here Deepak.

Cheers !! 🙂


Deepak August 7, 2014 at 6:34 am

Great. 🙂


Mohsin August 7, 2014 at 9:47 am

Hi Deepak,

I have blogged in past but got busy and have been ignoring for a year or so…

Your post is very motivating specially first point of keeping ongoing well organised record of ideas and things I find interesting in any given time. … way much better than notes taking here and there.

Thank you so much for the awesome and very motivating post.

Keep it up good work 🙂


Deepak August 7, 2014 at 9:59 am

Thanks Mohsin for taking the time to read and comment. Let me know when you get started blogging again, I will surely read.


Suresh N August 7, 2014 at 6:21 pm

Hi Deepak…. Gud one, keep inspiring as always….


ORKAY August 9, 2014 at 5:44 pm

Hi Deepak

It’s a great presentation of your motivating ideas for the lazy as well as the prospective bloggers. Keep writing.


Jahir Kameel September 3, 2014 at 1:11 am

I am not frequent commenter in blogpost but big reader. I spent lots of time in Internet in a day. My comments depend on my need or solution. But whatever i learned from various article or sites definitely you have the precious things in your sites. They way of your narration, material on article and simplicity of the web sites is truly awesome and not comparable with any one in my point of view. I really like all of your presentation. I will be my pleasure to learn few things from you Sir. If you allow me to learn from you before jumping on the digital space. I am Marketer, after completing my MBA in Marketing, i am working in IT company as Marketing Executive. Although this work not related to digital marketing but i know little and want to know more from you. Thank you.


Deepak September 3, 2014 at 5:16 pm

Thanks for your kind words Jahir. I am motivated to blog more with greater consistency! Please send me an email from contact me tab. I will see what I can do.


Mike September 24, 2014 at 7:44 am

I like this post a lot considering how blogging can make you a better speaker naturally is huge. I wonder if there can be a study done on this to effectively back up the claim.


vinodh October 26, 2014 at 11:34 am

I love this blog. More importantly I agree with your points on neil patel.
His personal blog quicksprout landed him big clients. he writes awesome content. Also I agree with indirect income sources. thats my personal experience. I found difficulty in getting revenue via direct income sources.
but i got gigs when i tried to blog consistently. In our country the potential to get revenue via indirect sources is huge. but not even 1 in one lakh working professionals have their own website for blogging . even if they write consistently on their experience they will land consulting gigs easily. all try to earn using adsense . thats very difficult. more effort required than indirect means of revenue.


Navneet November 14, 2014 at 7:57 pm

Hi Deepak,

This blog just motivated me to start writing more frequently. I have a blog but it is not fetching much traffic. As a result, I am searching reasons more than writing on it. This is just not igniting the creative spark you need to go ahead in this field. I guess, the first priority is to write, write and write more. I promise to just work on writing for next 30 days and take it from there.

Very good post!


Deepak November 15, 2014 at 6:19 am

Thanks a lot Navneet. After starting a blog I hope you will be publishing a book as well!


Boopesh November 15, 2014 at 12:51 am

I dont see a share button to share this article. Please correct me if I am wrong.


Deepak November 15, 2014 at 6:18 am

Yes, I have temporarily removed social share buttons. They will be back.


Srinath Reddy November 17, 2014 at 7:36 pm

Hi Deepak,

Great article indeed! And thanks for inspiring me to start writing. But, what could you please suggest the topics on which one can start blogging? and yeah please add share button so that we can share it.

Thanks once again!



Ryan Biddulph November 18, 2014 at 8:30 am

Each point rocks Deepak. I dig the expression point. More than anything I enjoy blogging to express myself and to naturally free my audience to express themselves. It’s such a freeing, fun journey. I want to take folks along for the ride.

In the past I blogged to make money. In the present I blog to free myself and to free my audience to blog from paradise. As the intent purifies, all the benefits flow in freely. Your thoughts will become organized and you’ll be prolific and you’ll connect with winning bloggers because you’re blogging for inspiring reasons.

I dig what you’re doing here DD. Awesome blog, awesome brand.



Uday December 15, 2014 at 4:32 pm

Truly encouraging!

I love reading the blogs especially about digital ad industry. Keep up the good work, Deepak.

Saurav Rathore February 14, 2016 at 4:34 pm

Hello Deepak

It’s been great for me reading this blog of yours. I’m literally in an awe of your writing skills and the way you inspired (at least me for sure) for not giving up blogging which I certainly would have only if I would have not read this blog somehow.
I started to blog since a month from now. I know its a very short time for expecting some miracles to happen, I should wait more and keep on writing for more time.
Actually, I was kind of tired of blogging and was to about to give up on it. I was not getting some good amount of readers though I was writing constantly.
But now I would continue doing it and try my best to write and improve upon myself.



Deepak Kanakaraju February 14, 2016 at 7:52 pm

Blogging is a long journey. Even if you have 10 readers, write for them. Slowly your audience will grow 🙂


Sandhya Sivadasan Pathak February 24, 2016 at 9:50 am

Hi Deepak,

It was an interesting read and quite informative. I am keen to blog and can’t write mundane ones so take time to complete one write up. COuld you please help me with restarting my blog?


Hemant March 7, 2016 at 2:07 pm

Why are you promoting digital vidya on your website when you encourage it to learn by doing it. I am sure Digital vidya also will offer just rubbish theory for exhorbitant price. Person ending up doling lots of money and ending up getting a useless piece of paper called certificate. Well all the institutes are like that then why promote digital vidya?


Virginia Dsouza March 22, 2016 at 5:28 pm

Hi Deepak very apt and quite informative for all first timers like me planning to start blogging.


Tahiese April 14, 2016 at 1:30 am

Hi Deepak!

This is a great article on why I should blog…incidently, I hvae been saing for several years I need to write a book and then recently I wanted to start blogging so I started this week creating my blog and it should be up by next week…this article and just coming across you on the internet is confirmation I am on the right track, Thanks!


Gaurav Srivastava June 15, 2016 at 3:21 pm

Regreting a lot it’s been in net from past 2-3 years and I got to know today. Will be active now.


saurabh July 3, 2016 at 12:26 am

sir i want to thank you for such a motivating post. I am really motivated by this blog..and why we should start blogging instantly.
I am an entrepreneur and my company is i n initial stage. I am gaining new experience about it everyday. Should i start blogging now or should i wait till proper establishment of my company.


Abhishek August 31, 2016 at 10:43 am

Hi Deepak,

Thanks for the article on blogging. I have always been interested in blogging but didn’t come up with blogging as such. Can you please provide some good blogging sites where I can register myself and blog?


Ruhee September 1, 2016 at 3:48 pm

Hi Deeepak
I have a start up agency in Digital marketing and needless to say i have learnt most of digital marketing by working with various clients in different sectors.
Iam struggling in getting my blogs visibility noticed , where am i going wrong ? I started blogs few months ago but need more visibility and comments.


Piyush Sanduja September 7, 2016 at 1:39 am

Hi Deepak,
I have always wanted to blog but somehow have always been complacent, hiding behind many reasons. I guess, now when I have started up, I really feel the need to do it. Your blog really helped and I hope to start my own blog very soon. This line really gave me a kick – “Writing is what adds value to a blog. Traffic is a result of that writing.” Thanks for blogging.


Maxim Khe September 14, 2016 at 11:37 am

I have never created or maintained a blog, this post is inspiring and I would love to do so but lack technological experience and knowledge, where and how do I start?


Moses September 20, 2016 at 9:19 pm

Dear Deepak
Its a good things to know you after I left India-Hyderabad,New Delhi few years ago.Then blogging was no important.I have read all your contribution so far on digital marketing.However,. I have tried to lay my hand on books that can aid my digital marketing skills but I couldn’t get.Master,I will be happy if I can learn under your feet. i am ready to be a guru in digital markeing.

Divya Chaudary October 19, 2016 at 6:29 pm

Sure the post is motivating(got all the reasons why should I take my writings from my journal to a blog) but I liked the way you right the most. Small comparisons that are made in the whole posts.
I agree with you….the kick that you get from creation is the ultimate kick…:)


Deepak Kanakaraju October 19, 2016 at 8:50 pm

I am addicted to that kick. That’s what motivates me to work on a blog post on a Friday evening. While my friends are chilling out, I chill out writing a post 🙂


Dibakar Bala October 22, 2016 at 1:32 am

Awesome Article Deepak. I read a lot of content on Blogging but was never really ready to invest the initial amount of money (being a student) and take the risk depending upon my learning and knowledge. But finally I did started with my blog and hopefully I’ll be able to make it go big someday.


Mentor Chris October 24, 2016 at 1:39 am

I thank you for the work you are doing hoping that in your next write-up you will give us some guidelines on how to make some income through blogging. Well done! I’m Chris from Biafra, Africa.


Pravash October 25, 2016 at 4:40 am

Thank you Deepak.
Finally something which has pushed me to the edge of starting my own blog.
Its thought provoking and awe-inspiring.
Also i appreciate your effort of sharing the knowledge with others.


Ujwal Tale October 25, 2016 at 1:55 pm

Hi ! Deepak

I am glad that FB has given me a chance to know you. Your article on blogging is really inspiring me a lot. Although I am a writer in heart, but never sum up the courage to start it. Thanks for igniting the urge in me. Really impressed with your font choice and easy going writing way. Thanks once again for lightning the interest in me. See you.


Deepak Kanakaraju November 26, 2016 at 10:59 pm

All the best Subash!


Madhav November 27, 2016 at 2:09 am

Hi Deepak,

Its really wonderful reading your articles. Simple, profound and motivational. Always wanted to start blogging for the longest time, but have never blogged, because of the fear of acceptance. This is definitely going to motivate me to take the first step. Thanks a ton for that. Really appreciate what you are doing. 🙂


Nsenam November 27, 2016 at 5:34 am

I have never felt something so real like this everytime I read your blog posts. I’m from Nigeria and I must confess you’re amazing


Karun reddy November 27, 2016 at 9:45 am

Great efforts Deepak. It inspired me a lot. Made me to try something new to me. Thankyou


Lokanath MP November 29, 2016 at 10:57 pm

I am closely following your On line DM Course . I write on technical/ Scientific/Cultural/ Music topics in magazines . I have not yet started blogging. Your blog can really inspire any one who reads that. As mentioned by you , your flow in writing and your narration through your audio presentation is the result of the lucid blog writing experience.. Am I right?
You are really doing a good service too !! The more you share your knowledge , more you will earn ( not money alone)

Lokanath MP


jay paul November 29, 2016 at 10:57 pm

The post is very motivating and informative. Thanks Deepak Sir .


SURYA TEJA December 5, 2016 at 9:12 am

The points you have mentioned are actually true. Although the last part has yet to come up from my blog, the others are true. When I started this blog, about a year ago, I was just under the impression of writing something, but what I wanted to write, was not in my head. Slowly, after 6 months, my writing has improved. There’s still a long way to go, but I am really happy at the progress that I have made so far. Thanks for the wonderful post


umakant dalvi December 8, 2016 at 4:01 am

Dear Deepak…That was really inspiring, it gave me a whole new perspective about blogging… you have given us more than sufficient reasons to start a blog… i really appreciate your kindness to share your knowledge and expertise to others…this surely comes back to you in the form of wishes and blessing that one needs to earn in life.
well, i have subscribed to your digital marketing course, just took the first lesson, and i am very mush interested to be a digital marketing expert… i was looking for a course and while searching for the institutes in mumbai, got introduced to you… well, as i have decided to learn from you… its all over to you… i have emptied my cups…pour in…
thanks again for your valuable inputs…cheers !!!


Ankit Roy December 13, 2016 at 6:25 pm

hello Deepak, I am running a service based business. Its going good. Getting good traffic and almost 200% boost in organic result on my service pages.

Gomathi December 14, 2016 at 4:36 pm

Hi Deepak,

I would like to write a blog as to how I evolved & eventually became a GM in a pharma company. Where do I publish the article. Should I own a website for this.

Hi Deepak,

I am from Nepal. I have found your post very interesting and useful. However, I have never used blogging. You may say generation gap. I retired from the University recently but I am still consulting and working as visiting professor. I have my professional network LinkedIn, social network face book and research network education.com but no blog. Will appreciate very much how can I can I start blogging.

This is a very good article and time bound. It gives me a start for my writing when I am struggling to start something of writing.

Deepak, do you copyright all your articles before putting them on the blog? If yes, how?

I have become really impressed reading your post dear Deepak. I was actually googling to see the rivalry between Raees and Kaabil released January 25th. Well, incidentally, I reached to your post.

It may be a co-incident, but, true that your post has influenced me to write and most importantly express my feelings as a way get rid of enormous pressure and tension that I am getting from running our family businesses. I was thinking to start my own blog and thank you that you have given me a good reason. Thank YOU very much

Deepak the ideas and way you present the thoughts are just amazing.
Describing blogging as an art and blogger as artist , explains the need to be a Blogger for a purpose and not just making pennies out of it.
The perfect seven reasons give a lot of confidence for any blogger who has just started writing blogs.
Thank you

Hello Deepak,

I ain’t a blogger and have never in my whole life bothered to drop a comment in any such online articles/videos/etc [except in fb] except for this one.
I must say your content is rich in facts and connects to most people in some point or another.
I’m at work right now and happened to read this inadvertently. And I am glad it happened because you know why, I am determined to become a blogger now, a proper one. I have had this idea while at school but I never had a proper purpose to start it and now I do which I think I’ll explain in my first blog. I have even planned its title; it’s ‘How and why I became a blogger’. Could you please tell me what I must do next?
