    could be, not if your life is boring though. Do you travel a lot, so extreme sports etc then it could be worthwhile, otherwise of no interest to people

    I think that having a personal blog is a good idea which is really useful for branding purposes. Having a personal blog will help to show the other side of any business professional.

    Personal blogs are great, in particular as bookmarks for what you've gotten accomplished and what you can alter about your lifestyle or business for the better. Sometimes seeing your achievements in writing is ideal to see how you are spending your time and if you are using it wisely both financially and for quality of life purposes.

    First, you need to have passion for that niche. Then don't do it for the money. You get the cash letter, as things unfold

    People usually want to know if there’s any benefit to having a personal blog as well as a niche-focused blog (as usually, but not all the time, personal blogs are harder to monetise). I think having a personal blog is incredibly useful, and I always recommend it to everyone, whether they want to monetise or not. I also think everyone should have a personal blog at some point.

    Having a personal blog does wonders for your writing and your enthusiasm, and can be the best way to explore, experiment and learn about blogging and how you want to be seen online. Having a personal blog will help you get to that juxtaposition of personal and audience satisfaction much faster than if you were blogging with a restricted niche or business.

    Having a personal blog is good if you do it related to your field of work. If you work in the IT sector, your can showcase your personal projects, articles etc. Add value to you. Also you can monetize it.
