Not every medium of writing is going to be well-suited for all people. Some people are great short story writers, some people are great poetry writers, and some people are great article writers. Part of the writing journey is finding your niche and figuring out how to make it work for you, but that doesn't mean you should never try anything else.

Writing in different mediums, be it essays, articles, blog, short stories, novels, poems, etc., helps to hone your skills by making you a more adaptable and well-rounded writer. Flex your writing muscles in a different way and gain some perspective that you can take back with you to your medium of choice. You never know when in life you're going to need other writing skills outside of your expertise, so hone your craft in all areas, not just one!
