And 85+ Others I Discovered – B
I will split them into altruistic, personal, and business.
B. The Altruistic Motives
Some people started their blogs with an unselfish generosity to, or concern for, other people’s interests.
I found 7 reasons in this regard.
- To offer people free articlesTo help people make online shopping decisions
- To inspire others
7. To help people make online shopping decisions
8. To help others
For example, a site like Zen Habits has helped change the lives of people by helping them relax, de-clutter and chill out.
- To contribute to charity and the community
For example, Jeff Goins donates 10% of sales from his course, Tribe Writers, to charity. And as part of celebration of his 32nd birthday, Pat Flynn raised $26,251 from his blog readers spread over 24 countries, and added $25,000 of his own money, to build 2 schools in Ghana.
10. To connect with like-minded people
11. To influence public opinion or policy
That was the case of a story you’ll love of two girls, aged 9 and 13, living respectively in Scotland and Brazil. The blog of the first girl exposed poor learning conditions in her school and attracted almost 8 million readers in four months. The second, which was inspired by the first, attracted over 200,000 readers in less than four weeks.
