Conclusion: Should You Start Blogging in 2020 and Beyond?

Many people assumed that blogging is only for businesses who want to make more money, build trust with their audiences and improve SEO ranking.

The truth is, you don’t need to be the owner of a multi-million dollar business to start a blog. No matter who you are or where you live, you can start a blog easily, work from home and make a substantial income (if you want to).

With hard work and determination, blogging can also do much to ameliorate a better work-life balance when you go full-time.

However, the benefits of blogging go far beyond making money (for those who have no intention of monetizing their blogs).

Penning down your thoughts, journaling and having an online presence improve your portfolio and enhance your clarity.

According to a study done by researchers in Taiwan (Ko & Kuo, 2009), blogging can make you happier.
