You are not alone if you more and more often think about blogging as about some separate hobby that can help you with academic writing along the way. It is getting popular over the last several years and there are lots of good reasons for that. Here are some benefits of starting our own blog while being a student:
- When you write, it makes you think about life and the changes that you make to it. It is valuable, because sometimes we commit acts, utterly unaware of what they will result in. Being a student, this experience is very valuable in terms of choices you make as a human being.
- When you write, your mind is cleared, and your thoughts are structured. Often, thoughts and feelings are some kinds of incomprehensible substance in your head. Something happens there, but you can’t make out what exactly. But when you write down thoughts, they crystallize and transform into a clear, logical structure.
- When you regularly write, you start to do it better, and this is very important in our digital age. It is even more important to your academic writing scores, as this practice, seemingly unrelated to your education, makes you much more experienced in dealing with words, text structures, etc.
- When writing you can share activities related to your student life. Other students are interested in your experience, as we all try to learn on mistakes of others and get inspired by the success of our peers.
- Professionals do blogging as well. There is a chance you’ve already addressed some academic writing services for professional help with essays, research papers and other homework assignments online. It is a common practice, especially when the given topic is too challenging and you need a professional to deal with it. From what we know, most of the expert writers have blogs where they hone their composition skills and creativity.
- When you write for an audience, even if the audience is only you, you also begin to think from the part of the reader. And here begins the magic. As if pulling away from yourself and taking the side of the reader, you start to perceive what you have written, on the other hand, this helps you to understand the people around you: friends, colleagues better. You begin to look at the world more broadly, and learn to experience empathy.
- When you write, you try to convincingly defend your point of view, as if trying to convince yourself of it. It will help you to convince those around you, you will learn to find the right words, so as not to attack a person, forcing him to defend himself and hold on to his opinion even more closely, and to act gently, as if you were explaining it to yourself.
- To write something every day, every day there must be some ideas. You start looking for them, but they are already everywhere: on the Internet, movies, music, magazines, pictures… And when you start writing, you begin to see them. You are open to the new. And often it is during the writing of the next text that you suddenly receive a solution to a complex problem.
- If you write in a blog, it will help you to form an audience around you. And this is good for both business and personal careers, and solely in terms of communication. You will have your circle of people who are interested in the same thing as you.
And this is just the beginning. The irony is that all the benefits of the habit of writing daily can not be described in words, but you can only feel for yourself. It will be reflected in your scores as you see how writing becomes your habit. Who knows, maybe your blog will be successful enough to become of your income sources.
