Why Freelancers Need to Start a Blog?

Let me share 4 reasons why freelancers should start a blog.

1. Obviously, you can earn from blogging e.g. sponsored posts, ads, and affiliates.

2. It gives you a better insight into the industry and from there you can be creative on what services you can offer as a Virtual Assistant. Currently, I handle reader engagement for an AUS client. I got accepted because I told them I also have a blog and I know what I need to do.

3. If you want to add content writing to your list of services, then your own blog is the perfect portfolio for you to showcase your skill and writing style. When applying for writing jobs, I simply send them the link to my blog.

4. Not yet an expert? Blogging is a multi-faceted activity. It is the perfect place for you to practice not just your writing skills but also your SEO, social media marketing, graphic design and a lot more. It's the best hands-on experience you can ever have to improve your craft. :)

How about you? Can you share what other reasons why freelancers should have a blog?
