Are there any benefits associated with being an original Blogger?
Maybe! But I really think there is.
I was inspired to write this post about a week ago when I had a chat with an entertainment blogger on Facebook. It was like an argument on why every blogger must be original; it was during this argument he placed a question that kept me thinking all day.
He asked: “Is there any benefit of being an original blogger?”
I paused for a while and told him I will get back to him.
But should I tell you one truth? You’re also asking yourself this question!
This post will represent a reply to that very question.
Well, I don’t intend to bore you with a long post; so I will make everything fast and detailed.
I passed the same question to some to bloggers and I should say, their responses births this post.
Being an original blogger is not just picking original ideas, it’s about finding original ways to communicate your messages.
Creating original contents can be stressful and time-consuming.
Some bloggers may say “what’s the point?”. But the truth is that there are exciting benefits of being an original blogger. But first;

You Stand Out Amongst the Crowd
Being an original blogger helps you stand out like a priest in the red light district.
Blogging in my voice help me write blog posts and guest posts that become memorable. Example; when folks read my guest posts they know it’s me before seeing the name attached to the post.
My writing style is memorable because I’m clear in writing how I speak, and I speak from my heart.
I’m not trying to be anyone else when I blog, but me.
Being original take clarity and confidence but the more you write for both practice and publishing you’ll find your writing voice and stand out like a lighthouse in the middle of a violent storm at sea
