Blogging can make you Happy.
Hello everyone! I hope you all are staying safe. Today, I want to share my reasons for ‘how blogging can make you happy’ if you are passionate about it. I don’t often write about blogging even though I get as many queries related to blogging as for parenting and travel. The only reason is I don’t feel that I am yet ready to write elaborate posts on how to start a blog or how to earn money from your blog. This month I am celebrating my blog’s 3rd birthday (accepting wishes this whole month), but I still feel naive in this field. Three years is a long journey, but there’s still a long way to go and a lot to experiment and learn.
Now, if you are wondering if I don’t want to write about blogging, then why did I even choose this topic? Well, I may not be an expert, but I can definitely tell you one thing that, blogging can make you Happy!

Well, if you are at this point in your journey, believe me, something good is about to happen soon. How can I be so sure? Because I have been in this phase too and not just once. So, trust me!

Now, what you have to do is unlearn whatever you have been doing and start experimenting. This phase is a cue for you to come out of your comfort zone. Are you willing to do that? Are you ready to take risks?
If your answer is yes, then, my friend, no one can stop you from experiencing the happiness that blogging can bring into your life. I know your answer would be yes if you are really passionate about writing or sharing your thoughts and ideas with people or help others with your experiences.

Here, I am sharing 5 reasons how blogging can make you happy.
1 – If you love sharing your thoughts and ideas with other people then Blogging is made for you
If you are someone who always has some views and thoughts to share on a topic. Then blogging is one platform that can make you really happy. Your blog can help you discover your voice. And also to reach a larger audience to share your ideas. If you are passionate about what you are writing, then happiness is all yours.
2 – If you love helping others then also blogging can make you happy
If you are enthusiastic about helping others with your experiences, then you should never think of quitting blogging. Because it can provide you a perfect platform to share your knowledge, which can be helpful to others. When your post helps someone and they reach out to you to say thanks, it is a divine feeling.
3 – It helps you to be financially independent
Yes, blogging is not just a hobby or a daily journal. It is your personal space that you can use professionally to earn money. I did my first collaboration with a brand just 3 months after starting my blog. And in the next month, I did 3 paid collaborations. Can you believe it?
If I can do it, you can do it too!
4 – Blogging can make you happy by letting you explore your creative side
Most people think that blogging is just about writing blog posts, and after a while, it may become dull or monotonous. Well, let me clear your doubts. Blogging is more than just writing blogs! It involves writing as well as marketing. It also lets you explore your creativity, like when you create PIN images for your post.
You can explore social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and link these back to your blog. There’s never a dull moment when you are into blogging. If you are not writing a post, you may be working on a video script or planning on how to promote your latest post.
5 – It is your safe space, your happy place
One of the best things about blogging is that you get your safe space, which gives such a happy feeling. Your blog is your personal space, and you get the freedom to experiment. You are free to do whatever you want; you can choose whichever topic you want to write. And, you can decide when to post and when to take a break.
Blogging is one job that is exciting and fun, and it makes you feel like a Boss. Can there be anything happier than this? I doubt.
Well, these are my 5 reasons to convince you to stick to blogging when you have hit a rough patch in your journey. I am sure your passion will help you overcome all the hurdles. And I hope now you can also say that blogging can make you happy!

Yes agree with you Neha that blogging offer us various opportunity to be creative and at the same time making a platform for sharing your thoughts and areas of expertise with others. And wow two lives ..all the best dear..my time zone didn’t match..will try to watch recorded videos.
Thank you, Surbhi 🙂
Blogging surely makes us happy. When our posts reaches many people and beings smile on them it surely makes a day.
Absolutely, it’s an amazing feeling 🙂 Thanks dear.
Blogging helps me in finding myself. I can pour my thoughts, opinions through words more easily than I can speak.
Same here, Ujjwal. I am more comfortable at writing my thoughts rather than speaking them out.
Congratulations!! on your blog’s 3rd anniversary. True, I too started blogging to have my own creative space in the digital world. It has so much to offer. An exciting journey where one equally shares as well as gains knowledge. Loved your thoughts through this post.
Thank you, Debidutta 🙂
Hey! Congratulations on your blog’s 3rd anniversary! I have been a fan of your work for a while now! I totally agree with each and every point you outlined. Truly, blogging is my safe place and has kept me sane in the worst times. Thank you for writing this brilliant post. Keep writing. Warm hugs!
Thank you, Mayura, your words of appreciation means a lot to me 🙂 I am glad you liked the post.
It’s very true Neha! Blogging gives us a happy feeling and good sense of satisfaction. Financial independence follows and there’s no looking back.
Thank you, Aditi 🙂
I do think, it helps when I write down an experience, when I share a few parenting struggles. To know that I am not the only one and that this problem is more like a common parenting challenge really helps. I loved reading your thoughts, glad we connect so well
I agree, Mandavi, when I share my experience and people respond saying that they can relate to it, then I feel I’m not alone. Sometimes, I get my answers to several doubts too. Glad to know you liked my thoughts, Thank you.
haaaapppy anniversary to your blog! I just know the feeling of how it makes you feel inside! agree with your points here – my journey also started as a blogger but that got lost somewhere and the happiness was lost. im happy to be back in the groove.
Thank you, Prisha 🙂
Hi Neha! My story is quite alike yours. Because blogging gives me immense joy and happiness. I echo with you, blogging gives us wings of joy and the imagination keeps us happy always. Lovely post dear.
Glad to know you could relate, thank you for stopping by dear 🙂
Neha, all your posts in Instagram or your blogs are indeed a great read! And yes, you definitely are made to blog and deserve the kind of recognition you have achieved till now. Now this post is something that I can relate to, how blogging makes me happy too. Yes, there are moments of self doubt and slow period, but still blogging is indeed rewarding to one’s mind and soul.
You are too kind to say that, Amritha, thank you so much 🙂 Glad to know you find blogging rewarding to one’s mind and soul.
blogging is my happy place too… i love it when i see traffic driven to my new post or to my blog. i just love that thrill that people are saving the post n I’m spreading my views
I know, that feeling is amazing 🙂
If blogging would not have happened in my life, I would have slipped into depression. So I know how blogging made my life joyful and helped me come out of a phase wherein I felt extremely lonely. Blogging gave me an opportunity to connect with people. I am an introvert and can never initiate a conversation and that made it difficult for me to adjust in a new city. I am more confident in sharing my thoughts where I know I won’t be judged, blogging helped me open up and I found numerous friends here.
So I agree with you and strongly recommend people who are introverts to start writing a blog.
Thank you for sharing this. Even I am an introvert and I feel so safe and happy when I blog. And I agree, introverts should definitely have a blog.
Agree, it is our safe place. It give us lot of creativity n positivity
Thank you for stopping by 🙂
Hey Neha, I second you in every thought of yours. Blogging gives me numerous reasons to smile and be happy always. On days, I can’t open my blog on my laptop, I feel awful but as soon someone visits it I am overwhelmed. Such is the relationship with my blog.
You know Geet, there have been days when I was in the worst mood and didn’t want to do anything, but when I started writing on my blog, I felt an amazing sense of relief. Blogging is my dose of happiness 🙂
Can’t agree more. Blogging to me is not just a medium to earn but it’s a feeling of satisfaction , pride and happiness. Connecting with others through your words and when you know that the words have a difference in their life- this feeling is special.
Happy Blog Anniversary!!
Blogging is a great way of expressing yourself. I am not sure about making money, but yes I would love to share my knowledge with the world and that makes me happy.
Nothing can bring happiness more than something which you love to do…Congratulations on this beautiful journey of blogging!!
So true…thank you so much for the wishes, Ruchi 🙂
