Mpower is the “M” factor in the pursuit of purposeful blogging…
~ Nihar Pradhan
As we think, so we reap, the age-old saying…is what we belief and accept as a means to living a good life. We all have adopted different means from good reading to traditional writing to religious meditation to think positively and to think better. We constantly look for newer means to make ourselves think more meaningfully and also get our mind engaged more purposefully.
Blogging has this inherent magical power to help us self-discover and at the same time it connects us to the world around. It creates a beautiful bridge between the inner self and the outer world without any hassles of those conventional barriers of age, gender, colour to country restricting us from building connection and establishing communication.
Here are ten purposeful objectives why we should blog and it not possible to cater to all these aspects when we want to start our blogging, we can choose two-three objectives and commence our blogging journey and there is no order of preference or priority to do so in the ensuing list of objectives, just a decision based on our own strength and interest…and we can always modify and later add to the blogging objective list.
