Having your own blog means you can write about whatever you want. The best blogs are passion-fueled and informative. Here are 2 reasons it’s a superb idea to use your blog for activism and become an activist.
The benefit of having your own blog means you can write about whatever you want. Typically, you want to stick to a niche because that helps keep your content focused. Activism is bigger than all of us, though.
Anyone can be an activist for a cause that they believe in. It doesn’t matter if the activism you want to do doesn’t match your usual content. Readers would rather support someone who produces quality content regularly and shares their same beliefs.
#1 No One Can Censor You On Your Blog
Your blog is your domain. You are in charge of what does and doesn’t make the cut. Why not blog about the things you hold close to your heart? Bring attention to the important organizations and social movements in your life.
No one can tell you what you should and should not post on your own blog. It’s your space and your voice for a reason. You have a talent you feel compelled to share with the world and you have an audience that listens. Audiences would rather see honesty and authenticity from their bloggers as opposed to fluff.
This gives your blog the perfect opportunity to be an uncensored activist site. And it doesn’t have to be every post. Just sprinkle it in your content enough so your readers have an uncensored sense of who you are and what you believe in.
#2 Your Blog is a Platform, Use It
Just because you started your blog with one niche in mind doesn’t mean that’s where it’ll end. That’s the beauty and unpredictability of life. Especially with a hobby like writing, where anything can happen with our trains of thought.
Like I said, you have a blog because you have a passion and talent to share with the world. Maybe you started a food blog because you love cooking and want the world to try your food. Or maybe you have a passion for travelling and want people to know the ins and outs of an incredible trip. Whatever the case, you’re blogging because it means something to you.
Your audience recognizes this and that’s why they keep coming back. You have this incredible platform you’ve built for yourself and it would be a travesty to not use it to its fullest extent. If you don’t feel comfortable going to protests, spreading the word for your activist cause through your blog can help your activism tremendously.
Activism comes in all shapes and sizes. Your blog can make you an activist and significant contributor to your activism cause of choice. Your activism could be for an organization, a social movement, or even a charity. You can be an activist on a local or global scale. It’s all up to you.
