I have been blogging and earning a niche income for a while now and yet every day I get this question, is blogging still profitable in 2022? is blogging dead?
The answer is yes it is still profitable and definitely not dead, in this article I am going to share with you why I recommend blogging especially if you are just starting out.
1. You can start at a very low cost
One of the best things I like about blogging is that you can at a very low upfront investment, you can get a domain name for free, and hosting for your blog for less than $4 per month from Bluehost.
2. It is easy to start a blog
It is really easy to create a blog, actually, you can install it in less than 10 minutes no kidding, you do not have to be a tech genius to do this, you can install your blog by just clicking a few buttons. Watch the video below to see how easy it is.
3. People love blogs
Millions of people read blogs every day, it can be to learn something, for entertainment or just to feel like they are part of something. Articles/posts are posted in chronological order, so people get to see the latest posts
4. Blogs are easy to monetize
You can easily monetize your blog with affiliate marketing. selling banners to your blog, using Adsense, getting paid for people to post in your blog, you can even sell the blog itself for a lot of money in the future, the options a limitless.
5. Writing about topics you enjoy is fun!
Writing can be very fun, especially if you like the topic, imagine if you like watching soccer or football and you wake up in the morning, you watch some soccer news and you write your opinion about that news in your blog.
You can do this all day long and you won’t even feel bored or not motivated since those things are part of your life.
6. It will establish you as an expert
When your blog becomes famous people will start coming to you as an expert for opinion, and you can start to charge for that and make even more money.
7. It will help to find your voice
When you start this online journey you do not know yet how to express your opinion and point of view, if you blog every day it will open up your mind and you will start to see things in a very clear way and this will pave your way in your online business.
8. It can change the course of your career
This is huge, writing about things you love and like can be a game-changer in your career, by trade I am an engineer but I was able to get a high-paid gig as a digital marketing consultant in one of the biggest companies in the world simply because the found my blog about email marketing.
You know when you start writing about things that you care about, people will start to notice you and then some of them will start treating you as an expert this can open a lot of doors for you.
This is not just me, I have friends who got jobs in big tech companies because someone found their small Youtube channel and liked the content, just start to share what you know and you will never know who is watching.
9. It is a great source of income
You can monetize your blog by using display ads, affiliate marketing, sponsored articles, etc, if you do this the right way, your blog can be a great source of income.
What I do is that the profit I make every month I invest it on stocks and bonds, and my portfolio is increasing every month. My aim is to be financially free 2 years from now and my blogs are helping me to reach that goal.
If you have a blog and reinvest the money you make, you can become financially free 5 to 10 years from now.
10. You can work from anywhere
The last but not the least reason why I recommend blogging is that you can work from anywhere in the world.
As long as you have where you can like ( I take my laptop with me everywhere I go) and have an internet connection, you can do blogging.
Sometimes even if I am in locations where I do not have an internet connection ( for example on a long-haul flight without an internet connection), I can open a writing program and start typing and editing and when I connect to the Internet I will just hit publish.
That is it, those are the 10 reasons why I recommend blogging for everyone who is starting out with online marketing and want to make money online.
