Blogging is the most mainstream thing that one can do. Blogging has somewhat taken the shape of a bandwagon. But does it help you in the long run? Today we will be discussing all the beneficial aspects of being a blogger for college goers.
Blogging is more like an ecosystem itself where you get to help others and help yourself too by learning a whole lot of things in the long run.
Your Blog is Your Resume
Your blog is just like your resume which keeps evolving, and the perks are added eventually as you further progress the level. Blogging is more like an RPG where you get to unlock perks by completing certain quests, which are your topic. And with the primary quest, comes the side missions which are your research work. As you complete both these missions, the perks are getting shelved in your bio, and your character is leveling up gradually.
Tip: Don’t get enough time to pursue your dreams? Here’s a list of friends you should avoid during college.
It’s More Like A Portfolio
Your blog reflects how experienced you are. It is more like a library which comprises of the work you have done, and all of it is available under the same roof. Always feel free to categorize your topics under the relevant tabs. Keep it updated. Your blog is your reflection, and it is an evidence of your professional work experience.
Your Knowledge is Your Pillar
Human Brain is the most powerful and the most complex of all things in the universe but still can’t remember where the car key was last seen. But if one contemplated enough regarding something, they are bound to remember that thing. So while you are blogging about a particular topic which deals with some information, you, in turn, get to know a great deal about it. That memory adhered to you for the rest of your life. So basically you climb to the next level of your game.
Be An Expert By Yourself
When you are running a blog all by yourself, you are officially the king of your realm. And with that comes a certain amount of responsibilities like keeping the back door applications running. You can do these backlog jobs by yourself or just opt to pay some agency. But if you want to learn and solidify your knowledge then you can always take up online courses of the following things:
- Website speed optimization
- Adobe Audition
- Adobe Premiere Pro
- Video lighting techniques
A blog can be started but maintaining it is very hard, and one has to be very constant about it otherwise he/she is bound to take the fall. Once you start improving the blog’s design, speed, SEO, you will automatically learn new things. See, told you that the perks just keep coming one by one, which means that they also go to your resume.
Your blog is yours and only yours, and this is the chance for you to show that world what you are and who you are. Show them that you are interested not by uttering a bunch of technical jargons and calling yourself a PR but by showing all your unique ideas. Demonstrate the world that you are unique and your blog is your platform.
Other perks that come with blogging are:
- Marketing skills (and many companies today are hiring for digital marketing/growth hacking roles)
- Web management
- Time management
- Steady Income
Consider your perks to be a Ranger Zord and all of these Zords are being combined into the Megazord, which is your resume. Now that you have learned all these things, it’s time for you to slay some demons or just simply level up.
