WHY SHOULD I START MY OWN BLOG?
This is a question that most bloggers ask themselves once they realise that they enjoy writing about certain topics. Why can't I just stick to commenting on other people's blogs and still get the benefit of being recognised as a professional in my niche?
The answer is simple. Yes, you can enjoy recognition by commenting on blogs but does it give you the same kind of satisfaction you would've had if you are in control of the content? By leaving a comment on other people's blogs your statement is seen as only an opinion and not an experienced viewpoint.
Yes, your opinion can be valued by many other visitors to the blog but they still see the operator of the blog as the real authority on the topic. Unless you have your own blog which you are promoting through your comments other readers might not take you seriously enough.
WHAT STOP PEOPLE FROM BLOGGING?
There are a few reasons why people prefer to comment on other blogs instead of having their own. Some of these reasons are:
- Time constraint prevents them from running a full-time block.
- People leaving comments does not have enough experience on the topic to have an expansive blog on the subject.
- Most people are afraid to fail and therefore will not attempt blogging as a hobby.
- People do not recognise the value of blogging and there for do not start their own.
As you can see from the reasons above it will be hard to take anybody falling into these classes as serious. Visitors to blogs can see when the block master has put an effort into the content in order to convey his knowledge and experience to the readers.

But you still want to know why you should start your own blog? You can only experience the joy of blogging once you start putting an effort into creating content that you can share with others.
