For Sarah, the top benefits of blogging are peace, happiness!

Yes. Blogging has brought Sarah Chetrit happiness more than just money.

For years, Sarah suffered from a painful disease of muscles, called fibromyalgia. That made her so sick and helpless that her life revolved around her couch, and she needed help for even small personal chores.

Then she took to blogging!

Blogging made her what she is today. She and her husband Mike started a blog Tales from a Fork in 2015. Later they changed it to Lust 'Till Dawn. While Sarah did the writing part, Mike helped with photography. Now it is a formidable blog on travel and food. They not only post travelogues and advice for travelers but also do reviews. The blog also publishes articles on lifestyle matters.

Lust 'Till Dawn has a section on tips to bloggers. They now run a number of courses on blogging too.

benefits from blogging should be beyond making money

On how blogging came to her life and helped shape it, Sarah says this on her blog:

While working at the Big Four, I got really sick from the stress of overworking and got fibromyalgia. I quit accounting, moved to Amsterdam, and became a travel blogger since I’ve been consistently traveling since 2005 and have been to over 20 countries... I’ve always loved traveling, but blogging about it added a whole new passion to my life. Now I love talking about traveling, blogging, and the peace and happiness I’ve finally found in life.

Sarah's experience shows, blogging need not be just for diarising one's thoughts and life-events. It need not be just for earning money. Blogging with passion has unseen benefits that are much more important: joy of creation, purpose in life, happiness.
