Regardless of how you typically blog, whether it’s a business or a hobby, at some point you might be tempted to blog about your personal life. You might talk about a past relationship you’ve had, refer to your day job, or even link to a registry for your upcoming wedding. But is it a good idea to blog about your personal life? Or should you keep your blogging life and personal life as separate as possible?
Why You Would Blog About Your Personal Life
Let’s look at some of the major reasons you would consider blogging about your personal life in the first place:
- Personal experiences. You might include references to your personal experiences if they share a theme with your work, or demonstrate an important point. For example, if you’re blogging about how to create a successful startup, and you’ve had entrepreneurship experience in the past, it’s a perfect opportunity to reference those stories and add more authority to your work.
