Building a writing portfolio is a smart way to present your skills and passion for words to others. Thanks to technology, internet access and free website hosting you can start a blog in an hour and begin sharing with the world.
In addition to authoring books and ebooks, I contribute written articles to various blogs. While some are paid gigs in which I provide content as a ghost writer, I have several of my own that I use for teaching and marketing my products and services.
My most-popular blog is Z Writes Words. Even when I don't update it regularly, it gets at least 5,000 views each week. That usually doubles when I'm posting. It's actually my second blog. The first platform I used was a Tumblr blog.
If you enjoy writing - even just as a hobby - starting a blog can help you showcase what you write. You never know ... if you become an international bestselling author in the future, you'll have perfect documentation of where it all began.
