Think about why are you starting a blog and why people should be interested in following you. Blogging is becoming more and more popular every day. It's easy to recognize that blogs are popular but if you want to start your own blog, it can be difficult to grasp why you should. Take a look at this list to help you make your decision about blogging. The great thing is that engineers can probably identify with more than one of these reasons.
The biggest benefits of blogging
Become a better writer and thinker
Once you start blogging, you’ll find yourself becoming a better writer and thinker. Mastering content takes creative thought. When you become immersed in creating great pieces of content for your blog, your writing, thinking and research skills improve in the process.
Establish yourself as an expert
Blogs are wonderful tools to help engineers establish themselves as experts in a field or niche. We all have some kind of interest and expertise to share with other engineers. If you’re able to produce great content on your blog and/or have a unique point of view on the topic, then be assured that your future audience will recognize it and reward you for it. Today, the Web has different experts and different opinions for almost every topic you can dream up. With a bit of effort, you too can become an authority in the area of your interest.
Increase your self-confidence
The more involved you become with blogging, the more your creative juices will flow. That’s one reason why blogging is so popular. As you gain knowledge about your topic, the confidence you’ll build in your followers and most importantly, in yourself, will soar. All of this leads to increased creativity. According to the New York Times, 65 % of Engineers around the world believe they have a book inside of them to share with the world. In essence, you will be writing a book, piece by piece, on your blog. Keep an open mind and enjoy your new-found confidence in your own abilities!
Make friends and have fun
With practice and a little effort, you can easily build your base of blog fans and followers. As you become known as an expert in your niche, you can inspire, encourage and help your followers make a difference in their own lives. Along your blogging journey, you will make new friends and connections throughout the world. If you like to travel, that means a lot of couches are available for you to snooze on while winging your way around the globe!
Make money from your blog
Blogging can also have financial benefits. You can place ads and receive affiliate commissions by promoting products of established online retailers. And you can sell your own digital products and merchandise. See below how much an engineer blogger can earn as he/she progresses with his/her blog:
Startup blogger income :
- $100 to $300 per month.
Intermediate blogger income:
- $1000 to $5000 per month.
Professional blogger income:

Some professional bloggers income ranges from $50000 to $100000 per month.
