1. Blogging can help you build a writing habit

Writing needs to mobilize creative wisdom. To be a good scholar, some people advocate writing every day. Regular blogging can be part of this habit. A blog post can be completed by one person sitting in any space, because it is small, independent, and can be drafted in a relatively short time. You can finish writing and publish an article in a few days. Establishing and maintaining this publish-feedback cycle gives bloggers a good motivation to develop a regular writing habit.

2. Blogs let you try to speak with words

Generally, blog writing is not as formal as other publications. It is entirely possible to try different perspectives, syntax, vocabulary, and genres. These text experiments can help you develop your unique style of writing to express your opinions. Recently, I have found that I have become more and more used to blogging in a relaxed writing style: shorter sentences, more metaphors, fewer adjectives, and I tend to express my opinions in a simple way.

3. Blogging allows you to reach your academic goals

Blogs are usually short articles, not too long. You have to learn to speak your thoughts in 2000 words or make it possible to talk to each other between multiple viewpoints. A blog post is an ideal place to talk about one thing. Journal articles often require you to talk to other authors. If your article contains too many ideas and is too complicated, it will be rejected by the journal. Therefore, in daily blogs, learning to master good writing habits and writing regularly can support you in completing other forms of writing.

4. Blogs help you find your readers

When you start a blog, you must consider who might be interested in it. You must concentrate on attracting them to read your post. In the virtual world, boring posts are more likely to be left out than boring people. You don't want this, so you have to figure out what your readers are expecting. The blog itself is an interactive platform. The behind-the-scenes data helps you understand which posts are more popular, who read them, and how many people reposted them. This helps you understand readers better. This advantage is not available in academic publications. Information on how many people clicked and started reading articles on all blogging platforms.

5. Blogging forces you to be more concise

Most blogs are relatively short, and readers don’t want to listen to your tirades. From the statistics of the many posts I have written, personal blogs are not a place to show off their erudition. Even if you find an example to be very attractive, if the introduction of this example weakens the connection between the paragraphs of the article, or lets Readers are getting impatient, so it's better to delete it. To help readers get into the state quickly, blog posts can be organized by listing main points or short paragraphs, like this article lists 1 to 7. Simplicity is a virtue in modern society. Learning how to make short speeches will make you more popular in almost all social activities and academic venues.

6. A blog allows you to try a variety of writing styles

A blog can have many kinds of posts. Some people always like to use a specific format, while others are eclectic. Blogs are purely personal creations, so there are no rules. You can do whatever you want, and of course, take care of your readers. Your blog may be a short episode, a narrative, a travel photo album, or a short and interesting literature review. You can also write letters or satirical comments, use images, videos, and conversation recordings to express your views and explain what you have done. I recently started experimenting with editing short travel videos. Maybe I just started using iMovie. Anyway, I think it’s fun.

7. Blogs help you build self-confidence

If you have not started writing regularly, you may have many concerns about the writing itself. Writing is a skill that requires practice just like acquiring other skills. No one is a master blogger from the beginning. As you become more and more accustomed to publishing texts on time, you will realize the possibilities that your existence brings to the world. Although you are not a real writer yet, you have clearly understood that writing is the core of the daily work of technical workers, and you can actively participate in discussions in the (non-)academic circle with less serious writing.
