In this internet age, so many people strive to get their voices out and share ideas. Initially, while most of them cling to social media to achieve this, only a few buy the idea of owning their space and starting their blogs where they’ll be in charge and have control. A few years back, blogs were seen as a personal diary — a virtual space where you post your ideas and experiences. But is this notion the same now? Well, there are more than 500 million blogs in the world, and of course, thousands of them are raking in millions yearly. So, is the idea still the same that blogs are just personal space?
Before we go further into why you should start a blog in 2021, It’s necessary to mention several blogs with competitive niches and new fertile lands to explore.
Data Science branched out around 2001, and it became popular in 2010 when there’s a need for group analysis of big data collected by the government and corporations. It is a study that focuses on analyzing complex data/records and predicting future outcomes to make smart and critical decisions. It involves several concepts from pre-existing disciplines, i.e., computer science, mathematics, and statistics. Besides, Data Science is now a household name in finance and, as a result, can be seen as a money-related topic. It is because companies and businesses are buying into its models for better market insights. For its dynamic and flexible approach to complex data analysis, stock traders invest heavily to stay above trading downfalls.

If you already had a good mentor and want to thank life for so much knowledge learned: Pay it forward.
