So, you want to start blogging do you?
You want to join all the millions of blogs that are out there and share
you creativity, passion, interest and ideas do you?
Well, good for you!
However, instead of reading all those “10 Reasons Why You Should Start A Blog” articles, I suggest that you now read my blog post on the subject as I bring you my very own, “10 Reasons Why You Should Never Start A Blog!“
Yep, if you haven’t thought of it, let me tell you that blogging takes time; time you could spend like you do at the moment simply slobbing out on the sofa like a beached walrus, binge-watching yourself to death and generally wasting your time doing what you enjoy… i.e.nothing constructive.
Why ruin a good thing when you can simply continue spending your time on things that don’t stretch your mind, your creativity and your intelligence.
Take it from me. you simply don’t have the time to blog as you’re already too occupied doing as much nothing as you enjoy.
Why add to your knowledge bank when you already know what you need to know?
Blogging means that you’ll have to learn new things, new subjects, you’ll have to open your mind to all sorts of new ideas which you can share with potentially millions of people.
Just imagine that; you’ll have to spend more brain energy on perhaps studying new subjects and trying to put your thoughts into words.
I wouldn’t bother if I were you.
Words… words… words… there are just too many of the damn things.
Just think, you’ll have to come up with many combinations of words made up of that scramble of letter keys you have on your keyboard.
Why try to put together words, sentences, paragraphs and such like when you can simply sit at your computer and play games with a games controller?
Alternatively you can also encourage your mind to wither with dullness as you tediously hop from link to tedious link on the web with your mouse?
No, take it from me, you don’t need all the wordy stuff to get in the way of you searching the web for inane stuff which are a real total waste of time.
Heck you might even add to your vocabulary and learn grammatical skills!
That’s all you need isn’t it, connecting with like-minded people with whom you can share, discuss and explore like-minded ideas?
No, no, no, all you need to connect on the web is your existing fellow team members while you play some blood-filled rampaging game on the web.
Just think about it, you might also come across people who can help you in your interest, hobby, given subject or passion!
You probably don’t have any idea at the moment as to what you would want to blog about.
That’s probably true, so why go to all the effort of finding out and exploring your passions?
Why go to all that effort of sharing your passions and ideas with others?
Just think how many people in the world would actually be interested in, or even benefit from your ideas, hobbies, skills and passions…
… it doesn’t bear thinking about does it?
Why waste your creativity when you can simply indulge your creative mind in coming up with stupid memes, photoshopping mindless “jokes”, taking what you consider to be “artistic” selfies, etc?
You’re right, the world is more interested in seeing your stupid selfie and your trolling posts than reading your creative posts on your blog.
7) Helping Others
Why bother to help others with a blog?
Just think of all those bloggers out there who write…
…”How To” blogs…
…”Inspirational” and Motivational” blogs …
…”Tech Tip” blogs…
… “Latest Gadgets” blogs…
…and so on.
Do you really want to get into that space where you selflessly help others with your skills, knowledge and interest?
Think about it very, very carefully!
8) Expanding Your Interest
Imagine you’re really into gaming and you decide to start a blog on that subject. You’ll probably learn a lot more about your interest when you blog about gaming as you’ll look for new ideas to share with others.
No, believe me, you already know enough about your interest and you don’t want to waste your time extending your potential and even becoming much more educated about your interest.
Heaven forbid you might even become an expert in your field as you start blogging about it.
Can you really afford to let that happen?
Just think of the worst case scenario; by you becoming blogger and sharing your ideas, you could even contribute to the pool of knowledge out there which relates to your given interest.
Of course you don’t want to let others know about what skills you have and more importantly you don’t really want to help others improve or gain from your skill-set now do you?
Once you start blogging you will inevitably gain some followers if you share your blog and contribute to other people’s blogs.
You don’t need all of that time-consuming stuff.
No, don’t even go there as you might even end up having more followers than I have!
No take it from me and remember what I’ve told you in this posting of “10 Reasons Why You Should Never Start A Blog!“
Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
