These Are the 12 Worst Reasons to Start a Blog


Check out this post from the Novelty Revisions blog with the 12 Worst Reasons to Start a Blog

Meg Dowell Writes

1. Revenge.

2. Because you’re bored.

3. It sounds like fun!

4. Because you probably can’t get published without one. (You can.)

5. You’re applying for a job, don’t have a blog yet, and think starting one now will impress an editor/hiring manager.

6. To “make a difference.” (You really have to be more specific than that.)

7. To get rich.

8. To start something “unique.”

9. To get famous.

10. Your friends/family/pets think you should.

11. Because a writing expert said you had to.

12. Because everyone else is doing it and that must mean you have to.
