Blogging didn’t actually exist a lot 20 years back. Now the internet’s full of them. Around 172,800 new blogs are created every day. Extraordinary; isn’t it? That’s like 2 blogs per seconds. Naturally, you can very well see that the popularity and importance of blogging has actually grown over time.
Now the question that I am going to place here is: “Are you an online tutor? If you are one, are you into blogging yet?” Most come up with answers like it’s more of a priority for students rather than teachers. If you think in that manner, it’s time to change your point of view ASAP.
Here are 7 definite reasons for which tutors should get into blogging ASAP.
1. Sharing is proportional to caring
Blogging gives you the platform to share your unlimited storage of information with the world.
A tutor is never short of memories. Those can be anything related to his/her lessons, classes or even his/her teaching techniques. The blogging platform gives his/her the opportunity to share the same with the outside world. Small things like that can really benefit the community in general.
By reaching out to the masses in general, the tutor will be able to form a small online community in no time.
2. Blogging helps tutors to reflect on his/her individual ideas
Different tutors have different teaching methods. By interacting with the online community in general, tutors will be able to reflect on their individual ideas many a time and will also be able to find out whether they can implement any other alternative teaching methods in classes to great effect.
Blogging can also aid people a lot in organizing your thoughts and ideas. You will be able to record your own teaching/knowledge progress on the same platform itself.
3. Blogging might also help in research and development
Many tutors continue their research on a particular subject beyond their grad schools. Blogging is a great way to record their research findings systematically on the world wide web that can be referred upon as per their convenience.
If you are an online tutor and into research as well at the same time, do remember that you can actually turn your very own blog page into your very own degree. That can benefit you tremendously in the long run in your research as well as in your career.
4. Blogging can indirectly and positive affect your reading skills
Ironical; isn’t it? You might arguing saying that blogging is heavily dependent on writing so it can improve your writing skills at the very most. Yes, of course it will. But how will you be able to write your information if you haven’t read/experienced it somewhere in the past?
Blogging will encourage you to read more and more. Such a practice can definitely benefit you in the long run.
5. You will be able to showcase your students’ work to the people in general
Blogging gives you the power to showcase any exceptional work of your student on the world wide web. The internet has endless potentials. Use it to your and your community’s benefits.
6. Blogging helps in building up you credibility
The success of an online tutor depends a lot on his/her reputation and credibility. The more credibility you have, the more popular you are going to be among your students. You will also be able to set some sort of a brand image to your name that can make you a standout among the crowd.
That is something most dream of. You shouldn’t be different either. Blogging gives you the opportunity to do all that on your very own platform. You can’t ask for more; can you?
7. Blogging gives you the opportunity to establish your own digital footprint
Most of us have always been a consumer of information. It’s high time we give something back to the world; we produce for the benefit of the mankind as a whole.
Blogging can bring an information producer out of you in no time. You will be able to contribute something at the very least to the community in general. Amazing; isn’t it?
So top thinking and start blogging. Do it the right way and you’ll definitely be able to make a difference in no time.
