Some of the writers here at Sarah Scoop have personal blogs, and I think they would all agree that it is an amazing way to release your thoughts and write to de-stress.

What do you love to write about? Which topics make your brain spark in ideas? Whether it’s fashion, personal life, advice, your hobbies, or all of the above, this will be the base of your blog.

Once you’ve customized your blog, start writing! Go out and find what inspires you and your readers! Most importantly, connect your blog to your Facebook, Twitter, and other networking sites so you can get more recognition.
A blog is not only a way for you to express yourself, but if it’s geared towards your career path, display your work on there like a portfolio you can put it on your resumé (only if it is professional, of course).
