The Things I Love About Blogging

Tuesday, 20 March 2018

I've never really been a hobby kind of person growing up. I'd usually start things and give up after a short while. Violin, card making, (yep you read that right) and painting to name a few on quite a long list. Although, I knew they'd never really be a true passion of mine and that they were just something I wanted to try. But writing, reading and taking photos have always been what makes me the happiest. A way of showing my creative side. So it was only right I'd eventually start a blog. And it means so much more to me than a URL on the big old interweb. So I thought I'd do a little round up of all the things I love most about blogging.

Connecting With People
The one thing that makes blogging so special is the readers. Being able to connect with likeminded people who share the same interests and thoughts is just so lovely. People from all over the world have visited my blog which blows my mind so being able to connect by having this one space to communicate and relate on is so cool to me.

The Creativity
I've always felt like I was a creative person but never had one thing to channel it through. Blogging has been the perfect avenue that ticks all of the boxes. I love the whole process; planning, photographing and writing posts about anything I feel like.  It's brilliant to be able to make something completely by myself and put it out there for people to read.

The Confidence Boost
In the beginning I was so scared to upload posts. Like anything new it was extremely daunting. I thought people would make fun or that what I was talking about wasn't interesting enough. And I never thought I was as good as other people doing it either. And at first no one was reading. Looking back now, it didn't matter because when just one person reading or commenting I felt so appreciative. And that's done my confidence the world of good and I finally feel proud of something I've done all by myself.

The Sharing
Although I'm young and haven't had extensive life experiences or life changing stories, I like to think I'm good at giving advice. Whether it's about makeup, mental health or just life in general, I love helping people. I love that my small space on the web can be somewhere people can come to escape or get inspired or to possibly learn something. Not that I think I'm an expert in anything to teach people mind. But I'd like to think I'm making a difference, no matter how small. And the comments and DM's and Emails I get mean so much to me. They make it all worth while to know I'm having some sort of impact.

I feel like I say it all the time but I'd just like to say thank you for reading this little blog of mine.
