Blogging for personal growth

Steve Pavlina has a new article on Blogging for Personal Growth, which I'll just touch on a few points here. Read the rest of the article at Steve's blog, where he talks about how blogging may be one of the best tools of personal growth.

  • Courage - sharing yourself publicly builds courage

  • Giving Hope - what you blog about can give others hope

  • Motivation - helping others can be a better motivation than just helping yourself

  • Self-Assessment - blogging can help you develop a more honest self-assessment

  • Self Esteem - helping others builds your own self esteem

  • Connection - blogging is predominantly a social experience

  • Transforming existing relationships - blogging helps strengthen both online and offline relationships

  • Self-Expression - you can instantly self-publish whatever you want

  • Accountability - you are accountable for the impact of your words on your readers

  • Contribution - you can make a difference in other people's lives

  • Synergy - relationships develop between you, the blogger, and your blog readers

  • Income - monetizing your blog brings you money

  • Marketing - your blog automatically notifies people and websites that it's been updated
Please visit Steve's site to read further detail with each point. Well worth the read.
