Why Should You Start A Blog?

Why should you start a blog? Is it a lot of work? Sometimes. Is it time consuming? Yes. So why did I become a blogger? I find it to be a therapeutic way to express my thoughts, passions and experiences with other people.

Three reasons why you should start a blog

  1. It’s a powerful way to express yourself. In the wise words of Madonna, “Express yourself, don’t repress yourself.” I’m totally guilty of holding things in until I burst. My job can be really stressful at times and I find blogging about my favorite things really relaxing. Blogging about experiences and the things I love allows me to hit the reset button and find my happy place. Honestly,  there’s no way I can be stressed out if I’m blogging about how proud I am of my children or discussing my favorite new skincare, makeup or fashion trends.
  2. Discover who you really are. I’ve learned a lot about myself through blogging and networking with other bloggers. A blog is the ultimate online journal. I am a happy, enthusiastic girl and that’s why I named my blog My Rays of Sunshine. Blogging has secured my belief that everyday is a ray of sunshine and a gift to be enjoyed. My Rays of Sunshine is a fun and encouraging lifestyle blog. It truly reflects who I am as a person. One day I hope to be able to look back at this website and see what made me happy at this point in my life. I want to take pride in how much I’ve grown and matured through the years.
  3. Because you are the missing piece of the puzzle.  Maybe you’re an awesome chef. I’d love to learn a new and exciting recipe from you. Are you tech savvy? Everyday I try to absorb all of the technology information that I can to improve my business. Or, perhaps you are the ultimate fashionista. I want you to show me how I can style myself like my favorite stars. The internet is full of bloggers, but what it’s lacking is you and your voice, your thoughts, and your contributions!

It’s easy to get started

 Simply choose your platform, blog, and domain name.  Who do you want the world to know you as? For just a few dollars a month, you can purchase your very own awesome domain name. And it’s easy and inexpensive to find great hosting for your blog from great companies like Web Hosting Hub!

 And most importantly, remember to be you!

And your blogging experience will be an awesome adventure!  


  • Loved this! I completely relate, my blog is like my little time for me to destress and writing makes me happy. I also love to go back through my blog and read about what I was thinking and doing during that period in my life.

      I think too many bloggers look at it as their chance to be famous. And, it seems like more and more blogs are becoming sponsored posts sites. It’s sad that they don’t submit unique content. I guess running nonstop contests is one way to get your numbers up.

      Awe, thank you Kelly! Looking at and sharing beautiful things makes me very happy. I hope they do the same for others!

    Blogging is therapeutic. It’s important to know why and what your goals are when you first start blogging. I didn’t do any of that and everything has been disorganized and not connected because of it. I think I have a plan going forward though.

      I agree Carla. I think the key is to simply start. I’ve slowly figured out what I want to achieve with this site. Now it’s only a matter of time.
