5 Reasons Why Blogging Therapy Is Therapeutic

Blogging is therapeutic

Do you consider yourself to be a stressed out person? Do little things throughout the day seem like they can’t be controlled? If you have any feelings along those lines, let me say…I’m there with you. Now, I’m not here to make this a “bring me down” post. I’m here to lift your spirits up and show you why blogging is therapeutic. Just think, if little things bother you or you feel things aren’t going your way…what do you usually do? Well, those of us who are usually glued to our computers like to blog. Why? Simple, its therapeutic


Now, why Blogging is therapeutic?

You may be wondering why I am writing this post? Without going into much detail, I had a family emergency today that really affected me. Luckily everything is alright, but things could have been worse. So, this goes back to why I am writing this post. I feel blogging is a wonderful outlet and great way to remove stress (that I experienced today) and feel free. This post is an example of me escaping the real world and interacting with people who share similar interests as I do. What can be better than putting your normal routine day on the shelf for a little while and just write about what interests you? I think blogging is the ultimate medicine. If you’re still in doubt that blogging cannot be therapeutic; let me break down 7 reasons as to why it is.

What Blogging Can Provide You With

1. You are free & out of any boundations or limits-

Internet is the only place where you are your own boss. You’re free to write whatever you want to whatever audience you want. There are no rules as to what you can post (for the most part) and in that moment while you write, you feel at peace.

2. An escape from the mundane stuff –

I mentioned this earlier, but we all need to escape reality every now and again because every day life can be stressful, some more than others. However, regardless if things in your life aren’t going the way you planned, when you sit down and write, tell me…what do you feel? Most people would say calm, focused, interested. There can be many other things that you feel, but that escape from reality allows some for some solitude as you enjoy the work you put together.


What?! Who enjoys working? Well, most people don’t, but when

Well, most people don’t, but when you are working on a blog post…you are working, however, have you ever felt happier working on something that is YOURS?

You are your own boss

That’s the big picture that blogging offers…an opportunity to work “for yourself” where you may not have that opportunity elsewhere. For me, that is the best piece of therapy I can offer to myself. The ability to say, “this is mine” is a great feeling and something I feel everyone should give themselves. Make something yours so you can unwind and break away.


This might not make sense to you, but remember when you were younger and you felt care free and all you wanted to do is “play.” Blogging gives you the chance to do that in a different capacity. When you blog, you “play.” Your audience are your childhood friends (granted, not all of them are). You get to get together with people who make you feel important and those people you can bounce ideas off of.

Feel like kid again

As a child, your mind runs wild with ideas.

As we get older, we forget to think like a child

Blogging allows you to think like a child where you can write in any form you find suitable without
having to provide reason for why you’re writing it. Remember, nobody asks a child why they’re doing what they do. Once you’re older and in the real world, you’re constantly asked “what are you doing?” The blogging world is a childhood
playground and if that’s not therapy for you, I don’t know what is.


This may sound a little corny, but for “therapy” to work or for something to be therapeutic, I believe that you need to zone in on what will help you as an individual. What is it of YOURS that takes you into that feeling of relaxation.

Blogging is one outlet and it works for me, but it doesn’t have to be your “therapy.” However, I felt blogging was perfect for this scenario considering the majority of the community here on Shout Me Loud and its something that many “internet enthusiasts” enjoy doing.

Have You Found Your Outlet Whether That Be Blogging Or Something Else?

Understand that if you feel like you need an outlet and aren’t sure how to find one, try writing….about anything. Also, who cares if anyone is reading?

Well, we all actually want people to read, but ultimately this is for YOU! You’re creating your outlet and you need to feel what you are doing is helpful for you in order for other people to take an interest. Once that happens, the community will build in time. Finally, just to re-state what I mentioned earlier, I don’t want this post to see like an upsetting one, rather to provide you an outlook.

Sometimes when you take a step back and see what blogging REALLY offers people, you can start to feel a newfound energy as an individual. Blogging is an amazing vacation!

Another SEO tool drops the word “SEO”

This guest post is by Majestic’s Marketing Director, Dixon Jones, who explains the reasons for their recent name change.
Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.

What will happen to influencer marketing if Instagram ‘Likes’ go away?

In April, app researcher Jane Manchun Wong discovered Instagram was testing removing “Like” counts on posts. At the time, an Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch it was not a public test, but an internal prototype and that the company was “exploring” new ways to reduce pressure on Instagram.The possibility that Instagram – a primary platform for influencer marketing – may potentially eliminate “Likes” could impact the influencer community, causing brands to question whether or not an influencer has enough sway to contribute to the brand’s marketing efforts. Without an outward facing metric such as “Likes,” influencers would have to rely on other resources to prove their content is worthwhile – once such resource: influencer marketing agencies.Good news for agencies“I do see it as a good thing for influencer marketing agencies and platform providers,” said Leah Logan, VP of media product strategy and marketing for Collective Bias.Logan’s influencer marketing agency works with a numbe…
