Why start your own personal blog?

Many bloggers aim at generating revenue from their blogs. Very little people start their own personal blogs and post about them.

The main reason for this is that many bloggers make a wrong assumption that personal blogs do not get any visitors and are not read by people.

But this is completely a wrong a wrong thought. Frankly, the only blog that I regularly post content is this blog. I love my personal blog more than any other one.

Blogging about yourself has a lot of advantages. Though your blog will not be read by anyone, you can read it in the future and it will be a good memory.

Late Aaron Swartz maintained his own personal blog at aaronsw.com. It was not read by many when he was alive but when he died, there was a steady increase in visitors.

And I recently heard of a woman blogger. She spent her last two months blogging. She was suffering from cancer when she started blogging. She used Typepad blogging service. The Typepad team read her blog everyday. One day, she did not post anything. Then, her sister said that she has passed away. And before dying, the woman said that the best thing she had ever done in her life was to spend her last days blogging.

Such is the power of blogging. It’s just like maintaining a journal about you and your interests.
