This blog post was first published on. Today, on , I am reposting this article with some updated content because when I read the older copy, I realized a lot of mistakes and poorly written sentences that were needed to be corrected.
The very first thing, I would like your attention that when I read the old copy of this article which was written by me only, I could find out many mistakes. It clearly shows that how much I have learned over the time that I can see errors in my earlier written content. And, the credit goes to Blogging! Yes, blogging is one of the best activities that when you do you can earn while you learn. That is the beauty of blogging! You learn every day if you do it from heart.
Nowadays, Blogging is ubiquitous in the online world. If you have a website to sell products or a business information site, you must have heard about blogs.
Blog is a very important type of website that you can use to share your views on specific products, services or any other matter. However, it has become a business model nowadays that most of the bloggers including me, use to earn money for their day to day living.
Now, without further ado, let’s come back to the topic i.e. Why Do I love blogging?
The short and simple answer is that there is no reason for loving someone or something. But, to be practical, there are countless reasons that made me fall in love with blogging. However,
I have to admit that I was very unconfident in my school and college days. There was always a fear of putting my views and feedback in front of others due to having an assumption in mind that my views might be wrong and will be ignored by everyone.
All thanks to Blogging! When I started writing for the web, I got appreciations from my readers and fellow bloggers. Hundreds of people started to like my views and started to follow what I used to recommend in my blog posts. Such kind of acceptance I always wanted, and due to blogging, I actually started getting it.
This acceptance has boosted my confidence a lot, and I became confident to put up my views and thoughts in front of others. Due to that confidence, I worked in various SEO companies on senior positions and handled many clients from different countries. Meetings and presentations became the easy tasks for me due the confidence I developed.
Apart from this, when this blog got its Page Rank 4 directly from 0, it was kind of great success because in those days Page Rank mattered a lot. I did get many emails from newbies and bloggers asking for the tips to improve a blog’s Page Rank.
These all incidents made me a confident person that helped me grow both professionally and personally.
I have worked for companies for around five years, and I can say that I was not able to use all of my skills because I was responsible mainly for the work I was assigned. I was into SEO, and my work was to do SEO for websites and manage the team. So even though I had knowledge of WordPress setup, CSS customization, SMO, PPC, and few other tech stuff, I only worked solely on SEO.
On the other side, when it comes to blogging I am able to use all of my skills. When I need to set up a new site, I can do the domain-hosting setup, WP installation, theme installation and customization, create a normal logo for the same, and later when I need to advertise I can do Google Adwords and FB ads too.

So, you can see that sooner or later I can utilize all of my skills while blogging. This is one of the biggest reasons I love blogging.
Though offline relationships are important, you need some good online friends too when your working area is around the internet. Blogging made it possible to build so many good friends online. Apart from friends, there are many people who follow me to learn from me. It is always a great feeling when people start following you.

I cannot write everyone’s name here because the number is countless.
Apart from friends and followers, blogging has constantly been giving me recognition around the web. You can have a look at my Featured on Page to know more about where all I have been featured.
These all make me feel happy and stay motivated!
I always wanted to work from home sitting in my arm chair and my pajama. I hate to wake up early in the morning and rush to the office with all the formals.
Blogging has given me the freedom to leave the day job and enjoy my life the way I always wanted to. It is all because blogging helps me earn a considerable amount of cash every month that is well enough for my day to day living.
Apart from this, I have done many small and big things with the blogging earning. Being a Type 1 diabetic I have to spend a lot of money on my medications and injections. But, ever since I started earning from blogging I never faced hard times.
I did buy a land in NCR and soon going to start the construction which has been my dream since the childhood. Yes, I always wanted to get a home with my own earning.
Blogging is one of the most beautiful activities of my life, and I am glad that I discovered it just after completing my studies that lead me to live a life that I always wanted to.
! I would like to stop here, and yes, these are the best reasons for me to love blogging from the bottom of my heart.
Now, I would like to hear from you. What are your reasons to love blogging?
