Committing to start a business blogging is a big decision. It starts with many hours researching from reading articles, watching videos and full of conflicting information of the best ways to start. Anyone who has started a blog can relate to this I’m sure. So after researching how to start a blog, what to blog about etc I asked myself the question:

“Do I want to really do this?”

If I was going to start a blog I wasn’t going to do it half hearted. I was all in or nothing. So I decided, If I can write down 50 reasons why I should start this blog then I will commit to starting this blog from 9AM tomorrow. To be honest, I didn’t think I would find 50 reasons but as you will see below I did!
The reason I’m sharing this with you is because now that the foundations of my blog are in place, I have a solid operating rhythm and is now profitable I wanted to get a little more personal and share why I started my blog. If you are on the fence, use my reasons as to why you should start yours because they are universal and should really apply to anyone trying to make this decision.

50 Reasons I committed to start a business blogging

50 Reasons I committed to start a business blogging

Believe it or not, I wrote this in less than 30 minutes on a train journey and even surprised myself. So that was it, I committed and here I am today still on the journey.

Now if you can take one thing away from this is that regardless if you are on the fence about starting a blog or on the fence with anything for that matter, set yourself a task like I did and commit to an outcome if you can achieve it. I thought to myself that if I can find 50 reasons then it is worth pursuing.  I challenge you to use this method and commit if you reach your target.

Let me know what you think in the comments below and hope you have got to know me a little better through this post!
