There’s endless reasons why you may want to start a blog, but I wanted to highlight a few good ones incase you haven’t plucked up the courage to hit publish… yet.
You have something to say
I wouldn’t advise to start a blog just because they seem to be ‘popular’ and you want to hop on the bandwagon. I mean, you do you, but if you have something to say, that’s a great reason to join the Blogosphere in my opinion. If you are passionate about a certain topic, whether that be makeup, books, or mental health, a blog is the perfect opportunity for you to share that with other people, and a space where your passion will thrive to even greater lengths.
You want to connect with others
Absolutely my favourite thing about blogging and social media in general is connecting with other like-minded people. There is nothing better. It’s not always applicable to meet online friends in real-life if you don’t live close to one another, but having an online space to come together and share your journey is a really beautiful thing in my eyes. Especially if like me, you often can feel lonely, it’s lovely to chat to people out there that can offer you encouragement and support when you need it.
You want something of your ‘own’
I totally get why you might want to start a blog for a place of your own. It was definitely one of the reasons behind why I started mine. Maybe that’s why I loved having a secret diary as a child, that feeling of having something that is only yours and doesn’t affect anybody else. A place to write your thoughts and feelings that only you can see (or you can post for the internet, like I do now). It’s feels so nourishing to me that I have an outlet for my creativity and mind, I must say I don’t know what I would do now without if I didn’t have blogging in my life!
Why did you start your blog? Or do you want to start one but haven’t done it yet?
