Top 3 Things I Love About Blogging

Monday, 12 January 2015

Since I started blogging, I have changed in ways I never thought possible and have learnt so many things. I could tell you so many reasons why I love blogging, but we would probably be here forever so I've narrowed it down to my top 3 instead. Take a look:


1. The number 1 thing which I love most about blogging is the way it has helped me to OPEN UP. TO BE BRAVE. and to learn
TO LET PEOPLE IN. I have this failing relationship with trust, we disagree so much that I don't even trust trust itself. And as a result of this I find it hard to open up to people. Having a blog, gives me the platform to open up to people who I don't know without the fear and worry of repercussions. And in turn from learning to open up on the blog, I have noticed myself opening up more with the people close to me and I feel happier as I am learning to slowly let people in. So thank you all for listening to my rants and moans. You are helping me to climb over a very high wall!





2. Helping me to master the 'social' of 'social media': About over a year ago anyone who knew me would tell you my disinterest for anything technology based and my dislike for all things social media. Instagram was a picture platform for vain, narcissistic people and Snapchat was for people who were lazy and had nothing better to do with their lives. I am a traditional girl, I love the smell of a good book and the cosiness of a library and I used to hate the idea of social media being used to express who you are. My thoughts were always why post something for everyone to see when you can keep it to yourself?(It probably has something to do with my inability to let people in and be open) Whatever it was, it was silly and once I broke free from my ridiculous stubborn nature and opened up to the world of blogging I learned how beautiful social media can be, it's really just another art form used as a creative outlet. Just like writing, singing and drawing. I now have and love Instagram, Snapchat, Blogger - the lot! (safe to say I have caught the social media bug). And don't worry snapchat users you may still be people with nothing better to do but this time I'm one of you too! #Socialmediarules



3. Blogging community: Since joining the blogging community I have met, spoken to and gotten to know so many talented and passionate people, through their words, pictures, blogs and social media accounts, and I love it! Blogging for the first time is such a scary thing, it's nice to have people who know what that feels like and people who can support and guide you through it. In the blogging community you learn about other's struggles, their passions, how they express this and most importantly their talent for making something out of nothing!It is inspirational to see the journey that both blogger and blog embark on and I hope to inspire new blogger's in the future with the progress and transition my blog will make.

And there we have it folks! I love the way that blogging teaches me new things about my writing, who I am as a writer and who I am as a person. A Blog is inspirational. A Blogger is successful. Blogging is powerful.
