Starting a money blog is one of the best things that I’ve ever done, and though it’s been a challenge at certain points, I’m so thankful that I decided to take the leap and share my ideas and advice with the world.
If you’re reading this, then it’s pretty safe to assume that you’re a bit of a personal finance geek yourself. You love learning how to save money, how to make money, and how to get the most out of your cash. And if that’s the case, I really think you should consider starting a money blog yourself.
These are the reasons why…
It gives you extra accountability on your journey
Knowing that I’m checking in here regularly with my readers gives me an extra incentive to stay on the right track and work towards my financial goals. If there’s a time when I’m thinking about throwing caution to the wind and overspending, I remember that I’ve got a growing community of readers right here who I’ll feel obliged to share that with.
Sometimes, people in the ‘real world’ don’t understand why you’re choosing to take a path that’s less ordinary. When you’re part of the money blog community though, you’ve got a team of supporters who will encourage you to thrive.
You could turn it into a profitable income stream
It’s no secret that there are professional bloggers out there who are making an absolute ton of money from their websites. If you have aspirations to do something similar, then it’s entirely possible. It’s just a case of committing to learning and sharing your ideas with the world.
The beauty of starting a money blog with a view to turn it into an income stream is that you can go as big or as small as you like. It’s realistic to be earning a couple of extra hundred pounds a month within a fairly short timeframe. Want to learn more? Check out this great post about how bloggers make their money.
The satisfaction of helping others is huge
You might think that you’re a relative newbie to the personal finance world. You’d be amazed at just how much you really do know though, and how others could benefit from your knowledge.
I absolutely love getting emails from my readers telling me about their progress. Knowing that you’re making a difference to people’s lives all around the world gives you an extra sense of purpose whilst you’re on your mission to be more money savvy.
Blogging forces you to really up your game
There are so many amazing blogs out there, and I’ll be totally honest here… Reading them inspires me to make my own blog right here the best it can possibly be. It ensures that I stay on top of all the top personal finance news. It forces me to think more creatively about how I spend. And it ultimately pushes me to improve my knowledge and understanding.
Of course, this had a great impact on my own bank account, and how I know I’ll manage my money in the future. For example, when I first thought about starting a money blog, I had zero knowledge of investing. It was something that I’d just never considered before as a real option for me. In recent months though, I’ve delved into learning about the ins and outs, and I’m excited to share my findings and my progress with my readers. Right now, I’m also keen to share my experiences with doing Christmas on a shoestring budget.
There’s no denying that starting a money blog involves a lot of hard work and dedication, and it’s not something that you should enter into lightly. There’s much to learn, but there are also some fantastic resources out there that will support you along the way.
