I entered the blogging world a little over 3 years ago to express my thoughts and have somewhat of an online journal where I shared my passion and slowly found a community who has the same interests as I do!
Having a passion for what you do is always important no matter what it is you're doing, whether it's a hobby, an activity or your job. Loving what you do is what keeps you going and giving for as long as you do it. It's what makes you continue in the best way possible and it keeps you happy. Blogging is very theraputic for me, I really love it and that's why I do it. To me, if I'm not enjoying what I'm doing, it's a complete waste of time.
There's a sea-full of blogs out there, with amazing content, gorgeous photography and lovely bloggers behind it all. What makes me unique is being my true self. There's no point of copying another blogger, because if that's how it worked, every blog will be the exact same. And that's how it is in the real world, if you're not your own person, you'll barely make it and if you do, you would have lost yourself in the process.
I absolutely love blogging. I love raving about my obsessions and expressing my thoughts. But sometimes, I lose inspiration and go through a blogger's mind block which is very normal. Personally, I'd much rather post something I'm genuinely pleased with than just another post to hide away the gap between my posts. It's the content that matters more than anything!
When I started blogging, I honestly did not think anyone would care to read my blog let alone come back for the next post. All I cared about was doing something I enjoyed and even getting 10 views was very exciting. That's how it should be. Blog because you love it, not because you want thousands of followers or anything out of it. Because if that's your only aim, blogging is not for you.
As much as I love typing away and putting up new posts, it is very important to take the time offline. The Internet world is fun and you get to interact with so many different people which is great, but you need to remember your life offline. Spend time with friends and family, relax, take a break. Not everything needs to be photographed and blogged about. You lose the joy of the moment by living it through your camera.
And that's just a few of the things I've learnt from blogging! If you enjoyed it and want a part 2, let me know down below! What have you learnt from blogging? Do share!
Until next time,
