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

Have you ever wanted to become a successful blogger? Or have you started a blog and didn’t continue growing it? In either case, this post will motivate you to start blogging again.

Blogging has a lot of rewards. But blogging is not easy and it is definitely not something that will give you quick results. Blogging is like running a marathon. It is like raising a baby, or growing a tree. It is not a one day task.

You have to do something to grow your blog everyday, in spite of not seeing results immediately. But once it grows to a certain stage, it takes a life of its own and then it keeps growing. I am a living proof of that. And there are many such successful bloggers in the world.

When I started this blog in 2013, it was only a small blog with a few articles, started mainly for the purpose of enhancing my digital marketing resume. But I kept working on it whenever I had time and eventually it has grown to become one of the top marketing blogs in India.

This blog DigitalDeepak has given rise to two 1Cr+ a year businesses. One is the digital marketing training company and the other one is the digital marketing agency PixelTrack. I have spoken about my blogging journey on my TEDx talk. In fact, the TEDx opportunity also came because of my blogging efforts.

No matter who you are and what you do in your life, you have a unique experience and skill that you need to share with the world via blogging. If you still aren’t motivated enough to start a blog right away, may be these 7 points will help you understand why it is important for you to start blogging.

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. How do you remember all of them? Do you think you can write it down in some place and refer it later?

A lot of people have journals where they have written several pages of notes. They spend so much time and focus during workshops and seminars. But we know what happens to those notes. It gets lost and those words never see the light of the day again.

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

Blogging, 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. And while you take the effort to present it in a better way, you also understand the concepts better and organize it better in your brain! Teaching is the best way to learn.

Organizing your learning within your mind is very similar to maintaining a library of books. Imagine each book is a piece of knowledge and the library is your brain. If you have a library of books collected over time, you wouldn’t know the location of each book. However, if you are a librarian, renting out these books to other people who want to read, you would know the location of each book and the book library is mapped in your brain, enabling you to retrieve specific information when you need it.

Most of the bloggers who have had massive success in blogging have confessed that they started their blogs with a collection of notes to themselves and they had a very small audience in the beginning. As people liked the content, it was shared and more people came to their blogs.

preserveWhen 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.

Every blogger would make at least a small amount of revenue from their blogs, which makes it possible to invest money in domains, hosting, and backup systems.

All blogs, beyond a certain stage, has the potential to generate revenue. You will never know how it can grow unless you get started. It could be a side project that gives you additional income or it could become a source of full-time income. For many, it has changed their lives.

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.

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. Publish 10 good articles on your blog and if no one reads it, you are allowed to accept defeat and not blog anymore 🙂

[June 2018 Update: I have recently published a very long blog post on how to write blog articles effectively. If you need help in writing, you should check it out.]

Next Action Steps to get Started:

2. You Create Something, You Become an Artist

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

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

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

Consumer brands give so many product options to the masses because they 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. Marketers and advertisers do the work of presenting so many options to consumers from a brand.

You might have been a victim of this yourself as you grew up. There are so many choices for automobiles, computers, phones and all the other toys. Say, for example, a guy called Bob chooses to buy a Red car, an Apple 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. 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 wealthy 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.

God is the ultimate creator. If you create, you are playing God. That’s why you should Create. That’s how mankind evolves. The happiness that comes from creating your own work of art can never come from anything else. Aim to create things in life, not consume it.

If given two options and if I have to choose only one, I’d rather have the power to create something of my own, than just be a consumer of what others are creating. The ‘kick’ that you get from creating is the ultimate kick. We are bringing things in existence which only existed in our imagination before. Seeing something go from a concept in your mind, that you just made up out of thin air, and letting it manifest in the real world is the best feeling I’ve come to known.

For example, HighTraffic Summit event is something that I imagined and visualized. And then we actually made it happen. It was real, and it added value to people’s lives. As we convert more things from idea to reality, the confidence that develops in us about our power to convert more of those ideas goes up. And then we become more powerful creators.

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 get admiration and not envy, and that’s the best way to express yourself in this world.

Can you afford to take the risk of not letting big things happen your life because you are too lazy to start a blog?

Blogging is the easiest form of creation that you can get started with. That’s why, my friend, you should be blogging! Something that starts with a simple website, could grow to something big tomorrow.

3. Your Writing & Speaking Skills Will 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. Now, after 10 years of blogging, I can write better and write faster than ever before. It is not about typing faster, but thinking clearly and letting the words flow, and not having the need to edit it too many times.

speakerAnother amazing discovery I made is that my speaking skills also improved when I got better at writing! And my writing skills improved even more after I got better at speaking on stage. How’s that possible?

Writing and speaking are not much different because both are about having a consistent flow of thoughts that can get converted into words on a screen (or) audible words in front of an audience.

With writing you have the luxury of editing it, but with speaking, you need to be careful. There is no backspace for your words on a stage when you are talking to 1000s of people.

Once you are capable of sharing your thoughts clearly on stage with a live audience, you can start writing like you speak, without edits, like I am doing now. Who doesn’t want to become an author, speaker and trainer? It’s wisdom, fame and wealth coming to you at the same time.

I can talk for hours on marketing without preparation in front of an audience if required, that skill has been gained from writing extensively. That’s why most published authors are almost always good speakers. They speak naturally and effortlessly even in front of large audiences. They have their neurons together for this purpose.

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.

No one becomes a thought leader on a topic over night. Starts with writing blog posts, then books, then public speaking, then interviews. And before you know it, you are the No.1 expert on your chosen topic in your country, if not the world.

4. 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 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. Apart from getting higher reach, you are also getting better depth with your audience. Brand engagement, not just brand impressions.

And you are engaging your audience on a deeper level, which strengthens the brand. Instead of just being on their face with your logo all the time, you are going to have a conversation with them through blogging. Like I am doing right now.

If you are reading this post right now, you have spent at least 10 minutes or more reading the words above. And that is as good as me having a conversation with you over a cup of coffee.

When I am impacting your life with my conversation, you are going to remember me, and when you do, you will feel good. Brand recall (remember me) and perception (feel good when you remember me). That’s all there is to branding, right?

Recall & good perception. That’s what every business craves for. Every big brand that is successful has done the same. And what better way to do it than blogging?

Blogging is a Two Way Conversation

Blogging is not just about publishing. It is more of a conversation; a one-to-many conversation channel. Since blogging happens in real time, the comments you get on your blog is a discussion. You are not writing a column in a newspaper where you don’t get any responses at all.

Publishing articles on newspapers, magazines and trade journals was a great personal branding method already. People used to send hand written letters to the author and post it via the postal system. Now people can respond with a comment, and if the writer acknowledges it and responds, it would make the readers very happy. This core group of readers who are the brand evangelists will help the brand grow.

Through blogging, your readers will feel that they know you personally. I have been blogging for more than 10 years now and I haven’t met many of my readers yet. (Maybe 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 🙂

5. 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.

expert

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

I was not an expert when I got started. If you rate knowledge on a scale of 1-10 and if expert means having a knowledge level of 7 or more, I was only 3/10.

However, with the little knowledge I got, I taught other people who were in the 1st or 2nd level. Then when my knowledge became 4/10, I taught people with the knowledge level of 3/10 or below. As I teach, I learn more, and my expertise level goes up, organically, naturally. You cannot become an expert overnight, no matter how hard you try.

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.

If you have made it up to this part of the article, you probably believe that I know my stuff about blogging and digital marketing. You perceive that I am an expert. That’s part of my personal branding.

That’s how you become an expert – organically. Without the need to have an impressive work profile or fancy degrees. I am a Civil Engineer, have not done an MBA and I do not hold any certificates of course completions. I just teach, teach, teach.

You may not know digital marketing as much as me, but if you know more than someone who is willing to learn from you then you are an expert in his/her eyes. And you can teach what you know with blogging.

6. Your Personal Brand Helps Your Company

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!

Many of the top companies in the world today have a strong personal brand behind it. The company raises money because of the personal brand of the CEO. They attract customers because of personal brand. And they attract employees because of their personal brand. Steve Jobs of Apple & Elon Musk of Tesla are great examples.

People feel more connected to these brands than other brands with just logos. For example, not many people know the person behind Audi or BMW. However, everyone knows the man behind Tesla Motors. We might not get a lot of TV interviews like Elon and Steve, but we can get people to pay attention to us by sharing our thoughts and visions for the world with blogging.

brandContent 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.

If you think about the most successful corporate blogs, you will see that there is a strong human element to it. For example, Rand from Moz.com & his whiteboard Fridays. Brian Clark from CopyBlogger.com and so on.

I recently launched OptinChat.com – a tool to collect email IDs via an automated chat interface. Most of the initial customers came from my own blog readership and I did not have to invest a lot on advertising and branding to get the initial traction. So, Yes. Personal branding works without a doubt.

You can take your personal brand beyond blogging as well. Through blogging, you pave the way to becoming a published author. If you write 30 blog posts where each of the posts are 1000-1500 words long. It could be published as a book with 30 chapters. A typical book is made of 25,000 words and churning out words in an organized manner will not be difficult when you practice as a blogger.

Read more about how to publish a book for personal branding. It is relatively easy to publish a print book these days. You need not wait for a big publisher to pick you and turn your fortunes. You can self publish it, get an ISBN number and market the book yourself.

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb

It might take a long time for you to become a published author, but if you want become a published author someday, become a blogger today.

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.

One person blogs have grown into 10 people publishing companies and people have quit their full time jobs to become entrepreneurs. My blog is a typical case study of a small blog growing into a training company and a digital marketing agency.

Here are some of the different income sources you might be able to get from your blog.

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.

Conclusion

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.

  2. 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! 😉

  3. 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 🙂
    Mohsin

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

  4. Hi Deepak

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

  5. 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.

    • 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Hi,
    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.
    regards

  8. 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!

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  14. Regards to the Artist. I always had the desire but lacking in focus. Trust the motivation keep me engaged in reading & writing more & more..

  15. 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.

    Thanks
    Saurav

  16. 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?

  17. 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!

  19. 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?

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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?

  23. 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.

  24. Deepak you are doing a great job man. Just pouring out your heart and mind . This post was just the motivation needed. Also i am enrolled for your digital marketing course. The lessons are very informative . Many thanks .

  25. Cheers mate ,
    I started learning your digital marketing lessons from today itself.
    I replied to your email regarding why i want to learn digital marketing,
    in my answer i told you that i started blogging in 2011 , but stopped because it was not paying me enough, BUT now i can understand where i was wrong . now i can start blogging again , Thanks mate for this wonderful information …

  26. 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…:)

    • 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 🙂

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  31. 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. 🙂

  32. 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

  33. 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

  34. 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

  35. 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 !!!

  36. 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.
    Although yngmedia.com is working for my website for all works like development, seo, smo everything.
    From last few days they are suggesting me to add blog with my business site. I would like to know how it will help in my business?

  37. Hi Deepak,
    Thanks for sharing this awesome article. I haven’t have blog for myself, but I’m sure soon I will create a blog for me.
    Very much inspirated. Thanks again

  38. Hi Deepak,

    I am very much new to digital marketing and start learning using web, online courses and start interacting with institute training digital mkt. But let me tell you that you have fully impressed me and I start following your each and every articles, blogs etc. This has motivated me a lot and now I am one of your great FAN.
    Thanks for such a great support and knowledge sharing.

    Thanks & Regards

  39. 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.

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  42. 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

  43. 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

  44. 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?

    Regards
    Jim

  45. Deepak

  53. Hello Sir,
    It is a fantastic post. I also started blogging, wrote some articles for my friends, my institute blog, and one on my personal blog. But don’t know, how this thing comes in my mind that I am not a good writer and stop writing. But your post inspired me a lot for writing again. Its not about for income, not about for traffic, it is about to express myself. Blogging is the best way to express your point of view, no matters, who cares or not but give you satisfaction and make you confident.
    I really need this spark this time. Thank you once again.

But never the less i will kick start again. Thank you!

  70. Hello Deepak,
    Your videos and articles have been dope. It brings all my world of imagination to existential reality. Thank you.
    However, I have a bit of confusion on choice making. I have a small media company which I have been promoting on facebook and Instagram for sometimes now. It is called AmbaMedia and specialises in events coverage and graphics design and branding. I have been nursing this desire to further digitalise this said business of mine.
    So I am making plans to create a website for the business. I also have these desire to launch a blog site where I can create contents and make money.
    So my question is, is there any way I can unify this need for a business website and that for a blog? I read somewhere that a static website is preferable for business to a blog site. Please help me out, perhaps on my inbox.

    Thanks

  71. I have found the experience so far awesome.
    Deepak you seem to make what looked very complex pretty simple.I am now more motivated more than before and sooner than later, i endeavour guided by you to come up with one of the best blogs in this part of the world.
    Kudos for your service to humanity.

  72. Thank Deepak
    I want to start a movie blog, i hope I will be up to task.

    I have been planning this for years now.

    But I think the fear to fail is the cause.
    Well, I have to start from somewhere to get to somewhere.

  80. Hi Deepak,

    I already have my own blogspot – goutamikulkarni.blogspot.com. From very long I thought of creating my own domain, after reading this article it inspired me more!

    Thank you for such inspiration.

  81. Deepak have overwhelmed. Due to the superfluous amount of reactions happening within me right now, allow me just to say thank you.
    I have been looking for this inspiration. I have wanted to blog like yesterday!

    I will get started right away. Thank you!

  82. Hi Deepak,

    Thanks for the tips on blogging wnd a very good write up, blogging is really important and one of the important sources for earning money online as well building their social network and you also mention expand the social network and many more tips.

    Thanks again keep up the good work.

  83. Thanks it really inspires me so much to what u have mentioned the only thing what I needed as a help from u to start blogging though I have downloaded go daddy but Iam unable to move further, but otherwise I need to learn a lot as iam new to this field.

  84. Very nice to go through you writeup. But being a novice need some kick starting or to get cranked up and running. Putting it simpler is how do i start.

  85. Top of the day to you Deepak.

    I love to write and even start a blog many times past after several attempt but creating a good niche is quite difficult for me. Most things that comes to my mind while in deep thoughts, i get to know someone somewhere around the world has written about it. How do i create a better brand that will then stand out. May I add that I write better when under pressure or stressed

  86. I think most importantly, as an SEO, you learn the importance of creating good content. More and more companies are moving into content marketing for online branding and in the future, there will be huge demand for people who have the ability to engage readers through good content.

  87. Thanks alot Deepak.I want to become a blogger.I have a little knowledge of Digital Marketing.This article is a valuable post for me.I will try my best to build a blog and to become a successful Digital Marketer.

  120. It’s really exciting to read about this blog topic of yours. It has actually motivated me more than ever before. Though, I have thought about great niche topics to blog about, I still don’t know if it will be better to blog about my career topics as I’m an electronic and communication engineer than the conventional high traffic niche topics like learn digital marketing, health and fitness, make money online etc. Nevertheless, it’s time to get started with blogging as I wouldnt want to miss out on the benefits of being an active full-time blogger.
    Once again thanks for this awesome blog topic. It’s really an inspiration for me to get started!

  121. I like your blogging tips and the same are really helpful to me as I am planning to start blogging. I am in the field of marketing for the last more than 30 years and never thought of blogging. Thx for your such tips of motivation.

  126. Hello deepak, thanks for reminding me, I quit blogging few yrs go. I thought that I cannot make money from it. But I know realize that making money online is consistency and not Genius.

    I recently launched a creative design agency,( http://betaconversion.com ) but I am lacking content on my blog, I will create more rather than consuming.

    Thanks ….

  127. Sir

    Your experience in blogging and how writing helped you to speak and think well is really motivating factor for people like me. Learned about Personal branding and how you portrayed it using the greats leaders of Apple and Tesla. Your willingness to share every bit of information going to its minutest and keeping it simple for masses to understand is something which attracts me towards your blog post.

    Thank you.

  128. Nice Article.

    I Like the Point number 1 where it says “Write, and the Traffic will Come”.

    I am impatient. I will try to focus on activity without thinking of after effects.

    Thanks for sharing.

  129. Dear Deepak,
    Very informative, engaging article. I also want to start a blog but unable to decide the niche. I have been following your articles and posts since last 10/11 months but still struggling with selecting a niche. I have seen your video “How to Choose a Topic for Your Blog?”, tried to think in terms of my passion, my talent, and the market and Still struggling. Problem with me is I am a jack of all but master of none. If possible, please help me.

  130. Highly impactful and effective blog on blogging which gives a lot of insights about the journey of blogging and its benefits.

  131. Great article!! But have some issues regarding my blog. I write a lot for my website but no traffic comes and it’s been more than a year. Could you suggest me some ideas “how to grab readers attention towards my blog”.
    My website is https://dealspricer.in/.
    Please help!!

  132. Dear sir,by looking at your articles here and there…you are indicating not to go for a digital marketing certification course for a fresher instead get their hands dirty by doing it.But…let’s suppose(it’s reality though;) i am a fresher and have completed by graduation 2 years ago with no work experience and no blog currently. So now if i want to get into this field then is it not advisable to go for a certification from a recognised institute ? Please do reply….your advice can help me in shaping my career(by the way i am 23;)

  133. Great article deepak kanakaraj. I have started my blog from your free digital marketing course and now, I am your student of 100-day blogging course. My website is ideasinsider.com. Keep up your good work

  139. Hi Deepak,

    Must confess, you have changed my entire perception of Blogging all together. You really got me!

    Having started blogging with the mindset of creating content and information fr individuals, blogging no doubt has only also helped enhance my INNER- techy abilities.

    Blogging might be a one-stop for every startup hoping to make most of his online activity, yet it just offers much more.

    Thanks man, much love!

  140. Thank you for such a valuable article!
    I am glad I came across your blog which is definitely a true sign of inspiration to grow in the right direction. I am a new blogger and was struggling for digital marketing. I have just subscribed to your 20-day lessons videos. And I hope they will all teach me and clear my doubts related to that.

    • Hi Deepak

      I really want to start a blog of my own.
      Because I need digital marketing experience for my resume and it is going to he very helpful if I start my business.
      But I dont have a laptop nor a desktop
      Can I become blogger only by a smartphone?
      If I can become, is the process in desktop and smartphone the same?
