    Great post, Rebecca. I totally agree with all your points. According to Hubspot (an Inbound Marketing Agency) a business who blogs gets up to 67% more leads than a business who doesn’t ! That number alone should convince everyone, right?

      Most definitely, Sarah! But you would be surprised by the number of people who still think blogging won’t work for their industry! Like they are the exception. But that is okay, because those of us who blog will get ahead! 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

    Thanks for the encouragement Rebecca. I don’t always feel like blogging but you points will encourage me to stick at it.

    Great points, Rebecca, and good reminders for me to remember when I’m feeling less than enthusiastic about writing a blog post. Your discipline is inspiring!

      Thanks, Kim. I’ve actually been very undisciplined as a blogger in the past, so it’s been great to overcome that and get into a good routine with blogging. I know that you do a great job with your blog as well. 🙂

      Hope you have a great week!

    Blogging is definitely worth it if you are inclined to it. If this is your calling then so be it if even if there are risks especially when it comes to criticisms by other bloggers. Any blogger have experienced this especially during at the start of their career. Just harness your skill in blogging and results will be positive. 🙂

      Deanne, this is definitely true. It’s not always easy to harness our skill in blogging (I like the way you put that!), but well worth the effort.

      Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, Deanne. I hope to see you again!

    I keep going back and forth with blogging. It’s just so darn hard to keep it up. But I’ve been doing it 3X a week for the last 2 weeks.

    When I feel like I wanna just skip, I just stop and write a post. Because I know that’s how it starts. Skip this one and that one and pretty soon, I’m off blogging for a month.

    So I like your reasons. I’ve yet to see the benefits yet, but I’m keeping at it.

      Jalanda, boy, can I relate to you! I agree that it is hard to keep up with, but once you get into the groove, it becomes much easier. I think a key is to find a rhythm that works for you, that you can keep up with consistently. For me, that is two per week on my own blog, and I’m trying to guest post once a week as well. As blogging is becoming easier and easier for me, I may increase it, but am not in a big hurry to do so. . . yet.

      I LOVE that when you feel like skipping, you just sit down and do it! That is truly the key to any type of discipline. I also have the same tendency to skip something once and then a month goes by with nothing done. That’s one reason why I have to make myself be consistent.

      I do know you’ll see the benefits if you just stick with it!

      Best to you,

      Rebecca
