After a mere three months of blogging, providing a top 10 list of benefits may seem presumptuous, but writing what you want is benefit #11 of a blog. So, here you are:
#1 Thinking more about your own thoughts, and committing them to writing.
#2 Hearing others’ perspectives on your thoughts, so you can refine them even further.
#3 Publicly declaring strategies, which builds internal and external expectations and commitment.
#4 Communicating with a (potentially) very wide audience in a manner convenient to them.
#5 Becoming a part of a community (e.g., the RE.net), and learning from the community.
#6 Building a community around your business.
#8 Search engine preference + community = potential new clients.
#9 Finding clients that are a good fit, because you’ll each know more about each other.
#10 Growing your business, so you can keep on thinking.
And here’s a number 12 — Developing a thick skin and a stronger mind.
