Are you an introvert and wondering whether you should blog or not?
Then, you have come to the right place.
Here, I will not only explain why blogging is very suitable for introverts but also the benefits of blogging for introverts.
So read on.
Perfect work environment-
When you start your blogging career, you will be mostly on your own.
So, you can design the perfect work environment which allows you to work deeply with maximum productivity.
As you are an introvert, you will love the solopreneurship and independence associated with blogging.
You will be most creative and productive when in solitude.
Also, you will be very happy to not work in an open workspace and not have superficial small talks, colleagues, peer pressure, calls, meetings and boss.
And this perfect work environment helps you to become a successful blogger.
Also as blogging provides you with a laptop lifestyle, you can blog from anywhere at any time which means you can choose the most suitable work environments and working hours.
Connect with other introverts-
Do you feel left out among your extroverted peers?
Are you yearning to connect with like-minded introverts?
Then, starting a blog and sharing your feelings through it can attract many like-minded introverts to it.
Through your blog, you can befriend many like-minded introverts from all over the world.
According to statistics, nearly one half of the population are introverts.
So, with your blog you have the potential to connect with these many people.
Great success rate-
Many introverted bloggers are quite successful.
And this reinstates that introversion helps in becoming a successful blogger.
As an introvert you like to work alone without a team.
Luckily, blogging allows this.
You can do all the blogging tasks single-handedly and can succeed without others’ help.
A great example for this is Amit Agarwal.
He has been running Digital Inspiration, a very successful tech blog since January 2004 all by himself.
Me time well spent-
As an introvert, you like to have more me time to relax and recharge your battery.
One of the best things that you can do in this time is to write.
When you make writing your hobby nothing can stop you from becoming a successful blogger.
Being in a calm and quiet state allows you to write amazing blog posts.
Reading is one of the hobbies of many introverts.
By reading, you accrue vast amounts of knowledge and simultaneously increase your vocabulary and comprehension.
If you are passionate about a niche (topic), you will be already reading a lot of related books and blogs.
And when you start a blog on the topic in which you have a good knowledge, you become unstoppable.
Also, your excellent vocabulary and comprehension helps in writing eloquent blog posts.
Creativity and wisdom to share-
By nature, introverts have a learning attitude.
They have a constant hunger for knowledge and like to keep their minds busy with information, so that they can ponder over them in silence.
Introverts are often very creative and knowledgeable.
You can share your creativity and knowledge through your blog.
And in the process, amass a huge readership.
Express yourself and become more confident-
Even though you are an introvert, you would like to express your thoughts, feelings and opinions to the world.
But you might not want to speak to people, get on videos or dance.
You may not sound confident while speaking to strangers but your writings can showcase your confidence.
So, the best and easiest way to express your thoughts is through your blog.
You can pour your heart out on your blog and this expression gives you confidence and makes your voice heard.
Your blog serves as your journal to vent.
Eventually, as the number of readers and followers for your blog increase, so does your confidence.
This will affirm that your thoughts and opinions matter.
Utilize your love for writing-
As an introvert, you love writing and possess great writing skills.
The most important aspect of blogging is writing.
So, why not use your writing prowess to become a blogger?
There are countless advantages of becoming a blogger.
Meat of the matter-
As an introvert you hate chit-chat and want to quickly get into the heart of the matter.
This quality of yours is very well required while writing blog posts.
When you write blog posts, you avoid the fluff and get straight into the subject.
This is beneficial both for your readers and your blog’s search engine optimization (SEO).
Also, your disdain for chatter saves you a lot of time and energy and you can invest that time and energy for your blog.
Cognition and empathy-
Introverts are highly cognitive people.
They like to acquire deep knowledge and understanding through observing, deep thinking and experiencing.
As you are an introvert, this helps you greatly in understanding your blog’s niche, readers and their problems.
Also, as introverts are highly sensitive and empathetic, they put themselves into the shoes of their readers.
And to become a successful blogger, having empathy is paramount.
Also, introverts have different perspectives of things.
By being highly sensitive, you will notice many things which other people overlook.
And when you create blog posts addressing those things, your readers will naturally appreciate you.
Introverts are highly attentive people.
They are usually the ones who detect very minute changes in everything.
As an introverted blogger, staying attentive helps you to be up-to-date and identify new trends and opportunities.
Focusing is a good trait-
Introverts are good at focusing at a task for prolonged periods of time.
And as an introvert, you will have unwavered focus to finish that lengthy blog post which usually spans over thousands of words.
Introverts are reluctant to accept change.
Blogging yields results after a long time.
It may take several months or an entire year before you see any traffic to your blog.
And this demotivates many people and they change their mind and quit blogging.
But as you are an introvert and determined to become a successful blogger, you won’t easily quit blogging.
You persist in until you see the desired results.
You can be anonymous-
If you fear that your blog might reveal too much of your identity, you can blog anonymously.
A valid excuse-
Social events fatigue introverts.
Oftentimes, you might want to turn off the invitations for social events.
And you might be searching for excuses for escaping those parties.
When you start a blog, you will naturally be very busy with learning blogging and growing your blog.
This means you can give excuses of working on your blog or learning blogging for not attending parties.
If you don’t want to reveal that you are working on a blog, you can tell them that you are working on a project.
In your control-
Even when you are feeling drained, you can’t immediately abandon a conversation while speaking to a person in an offline setting.
But as blogging is completely online, you will mostly have online conversations with others.
And this gives you the power to temporarily leave a conversation when you feel exhausted without offending others.
As an introverted blogger, networking with other bloggers might be your biggest fear.
But knowing that many bloggers are also introverts and as nervous as you, gives you a confidence boost.
Whether you are attending an online conference or an offline one, putting a smile on your face smooths out the tension and makes you more cordial.
Blogging is undoubtedly one of the best career options for introverts.
As an introvert, you possess a goldmine of insights and knowledge and love writing.
So, why not start a blog and express your creativity through it?
Additionally, through blogging you can learn many skills, grow as a person and earn money.
So, are you excited to start a blog?
Are you an introvert who loves to write?
