Why Freelancers Need to Start a Blog?

Here are Top 5 reasons why freelancers or online workers should start a blog: 

1. INCOME - You can earn from blogging through sponsored posts, ads like Google Adsense, and affiliate marketing. 

2. INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE - It gives you a better insight into the blogging industry. From there you can be creative on what services you can offer as a Virtual Assistant. Currently, I handle reader engagement for an Australian client who's a blogger. I got accepted because I told them I also have a blog and I am familiar and knowledgeable of what they need because I personally do it for my own blog. 

To give you an idea, some of the services that you can offer include content writing, syndication threads (comment exchanges, follow for follow, etc.), backlinking, etc. 

3. PORTFOLIO - 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. LINKAGE BUILDING AND NETWORKING - Have you seen job posts about blogger outreach and campaign management? Well, it may be handy to have an existing network of bloggers. Luckily, blogging has allowed me to make new online and offline friends. 

5. EXPERIENCE AND PRACTICE - 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? 


  1. Totally agreed! Every business, big or small should have a blog!

  2. I think blogging is a passion one drive from a particular niche.. That alone gives you joy to excess blogging.. They should have a blog is because it will help people to reach out to them..

  3. Great article. This is a topic I know I need to learn more about and you really helped me understand some good ways. Thank you.

  4. Blog is needed when you are applying for content writer position. Or a simple website that showcases your portfolio will do. I also use my blog whenever I'm applying for content writer position. As a matter of fact, I got hired after I showed my blog to my client now. Keep writing more. :)
