By the end of this article, you are going to be able to turn to a loved one or neighbor and say “Do you know I will be a published author by this time tomorrow?” Imagine the blank stares you’ll get, and how impressed they will be when you show them your name on your online articles! They never expected your pearls of wisdom to be up in lights!
Your lifelong knowledge and experience will be valued highly by others, and you’ll feel amazing contributing to the greater good!
As someone who has been around for a while, you’ve seen a lot, and have such great experience and perspective. Maybe you’ve had a bunch of kids, and are now seeing them go through their own parenting era, or maybe they can’t seem to get around to it. Maybe you’ve worked for a long time in an industry and have seen the ebb and flow of the business cycle. Maybe you’ve got dedicated hobbies and deep passions. And maybe you’ve lived life to the fullest with your friends and loved ones. Without a doubt you have built up amazing perspectives on how the world works. And you know what, a lot of people can benefit from this!
When you share your knowledge you will feel amazing. Not only will you get the satisfaction that others are benefitting from it, you will also get a huge feeling of satisfaction that you are making a more lasting contribution to the world. And if you feel like it, you can get a real jolt of energy when you hear what others think about your knowledge! All of this can really support your well-being and self-worth, not to mention helping keep you mentally sharp. Sharing what you really know that you know – right there in the fiber of your being – is such a rewarding experience.
But who actually wants to learn from my experience?
You might be thinking, who is going to want to listen to me? Sometimes people you see regularly have heard it all before and are tired of unsolicited advice. “There s/he goes again, telling me what to do!” Some of those people are probably blocking out the amazing perspectives you have to share. Well set all of that aside right now, because it turns out that millions of people are looking for the very things you know all about!
Take parenting tips, for example. Tens of thousands of people search the internet for parenting tips every month! (Source: Google) You may have been there and done that, and have learned amazing ways to make parenting easier on the parent and better for the child. There are people out there who are dying to hear from experienced parents. And this is true for pretty much any topic you can think of, any hobby, industry, group of people, or sport you happen to be passionate about. This shows the huge opportunity to get your views across online…if only there were an easy way to do that!
Even if they want to learn, how can I share it with them?
If you’re convinced there are people out there who are interested in what you have to say, the next question is how. How could I actually share what I know in a way that they will see it? Well publishing yourself online via a blog has never been easier. While some new tech is unfathomable for many (and not just the over 50s), some has been designed to be super simple. If you can use a web browser and type, you can now publish yourself! To write online or blog at any age has never been easier.
