There are times when I think I had missed out on my early years in high school and college. It would have been great if I had a computer and found out about blogging during my high school days. Today, I would be owning a blog that’s well over 10 years old and making me thousands if not millions of dollars in revenue monthly.
I started blogging about two years into my first job at HP. Work was good, people so-so and the politics was at its peak. And as a newbie at work I often ended up being blamed for everyones shoddy work. This made me realise that having a day job is not going to cut it for me. I needed to have something of my own where I’m in complete control and able to take decisions on a day to day basis. Soon, I stumbled upon blogging and here I am today.
With that said, I always believed that I was introduced to blogging at a much earlier stage of my life, I would have learned a lot more and done a lot more as I had a lot of free time on hand. I was quite smart for my age and amongst my classmates. It would have been a great experience to have made some money especially when all your classmates are from ultra rich families.
I would have been able to hang out with the cool kids in the class and been able to transform my life and built a powerful network of individuals.
I am happy with my life right now, as it turned out I did turn to blogging a space that involves a lot of writing. This has given me the opportunity to show people that can add value and contribute to a community especially when no one believed that I could achieve anything in my life.
Thanks to those who did not have faith in me and my abilities, I’ve pushed myself to achieve something that I could not. Students should start blogging, there are way too much opportunities out there that you are missing out on. Here are the five main reasons I strongly believe that students in High School or College should blog regularly.
