Blogging has matured.
These days most people are aware of blogging. They may not know much about the technical details but they know that it is accessible. Anybody can do it. What most people miss is the reason for blogging. Is it only an expression of bravado; a way to show off or is there more to it? Should everybody consider blogging?
Last year I developed a list of ten reasons why Boomers should consider blogging. I was focusing on boomers because it seemed to me that they were a natural target for my topic about retirement lifestyle. This is certainly true today with more and more boomers reaching retirement age but my thinking has evolved. These days, it is not only boomers who want to take control of their lives. It is everyone. Today, the only way for most people to create a lifestyle of fulfillment is by taking control. You can do that at any age- and when you do, you can begin living on your own terms. Why wait until retirement age?
Blogging can be a tool.
Blogging can help develop the skills that can help you take control of your life. Whatever your stage in life, take a look at those reasons and think about how blogging could help you with your personal development goals or just get you started on a lifestyle change. Then share your conclusions in a comment.
