Blogging can open mega doors for you.
One of the reasons why I started istartandfinish.com almost eight years ago was because I needed a platform where I could just be me. I used my front end development skills from back in the day as an IT consultant and built the website.
I wanted to place my stamp on it. Brand. Write. Encourage. Speak. Teach. Motivate. Build up faith. I was doing all of them already [and helping people become better] but not in a place that I could call my own. I was determined to own my voice, use my gifts, skills, knowledge and expertise.
I pitched my tent in cyber land.
In the beginning, I didn’t know how far it would go. All I knew was that I needed to have a place to write messages that would help people get to the next level, be empowered and enjoy this blessed life.
That leap of faith has opened many destiny doors.
How has blogging enhanced my purpose?
- Some of my blog posts have become my frequently requested speaking topics.
- Some people connected with me on social media because of my articles they read or someone forwarded to them.
- A couple of blog posts became catalysts for book titles.
- Blogging led to mentoring and coaching.
- Blogging brought clients.
- Blogging increased visibility of my message that has helped emancipate others.
Blogging has helped me in many ways – professionally and in business. Have you started yours yet?
I have seen many people write powerful posts on Facebook [a borrowed platform] and Instagram yet they do not publish on theirs. It is important to diversify platforms but imperative that you own your voice and pitch your own tent in cyber land.

Tip: Don’t blog for the sake of blogging or because everyone is doing it. Write with purpose and solve problems (not confuse or contribute to problems).
