Why I Decided To Start A Blog

For me, starting a blog was a necessary evil. As a designer, writing isn’t my most favorite thing to do in the world. You might be thinking, “Curtis, why would you do something you hate?” To that I would say, sometimes we have to do things we don’t want to do to get to where we’re going.

The truth is, blogging is still very much relevant.

Whether it’s boosting SEO, establishing ourselves as thought leaders, connecting with like-minded people, discovering more about who we are, generating some income, or lending a hand to others, the benefits are clear.

It’s all about the long game, finding ways to engage with our audience, and carving out our niche in the vast digital landscape. 

Think of each blog post as a step closer to achieving your goals, turning the necessary into something truly rewarding. Let’s unpack the undeniable value of blogging and how it can not only elevate our professional journey but also offer unexpected personal growth and connections.
