13 Reasons Why I Love Blogging

Wednesday, 23 August 2017

Happy Sunday!

It's 11pm as I write this and I've got work tomorrow, and I am REALLY regretting the two vanilla lattes I just drank in the past two hours. I don't think my brain has -ever- felt this switched on.

I've just taken part of a really lovely twitter chat hosted by @Bliss_Bloggers, and it got me thinking about just how much I have benefited because of the wonderful blogosphere... so here are 13 things I love about blogging...





1. It has encouraged me to set regular, achievable goals for myself

2. Which in turn has really boosted my motivation and constant eagerness to strive to do and be better

3. Through writing for this blog over the years, I have learnt so much about myself that I wouldn't have otherwise

4. And I have had a creative outlet that I'm passionate about

5. Not only have I improved my writing skills, but I have also had the perfect environment for discovering and nurturing my love for photography... 


7. In general, my presence and following on social media has rocketed because of my involvement in the blogger community

8. Which brings me to talk about how much I adore being a part of the blogger community; a community centered around supporting and helping each other


10. In return, I have had the pleasure and privilege of encouraging some of my favourite creative influencers, like Jemma from Dorkface!

11. And I couldn't mention the blogging community without noting how much FUN I've had being a part of multiple Twitter chats- especially over the past few months

12. One of the things I love the most about it is that I have my very own unique little space, where I control exactly what goes up and how it is presented

13. Finally, it's been an amazing, exciting journey; getting to see my little corner of the internet grow


Do you blog? What do you love about it?

Adios, xo

  2. I started my blog in January and I've been loving the creative side of it. I love writing and I'm definitely growing my skills in that area. I also love photography so I enjoy taking pictures and editing them. My Instagram feed is really evolving and I'm loving that. And I also love connecting with fellow bloggers. I'm in some groups with amazing ladies that really inspire me to do better everyday. Those are my favorite parts of blogging.

  3. Ah I love blogging basically for the same reasons you do! It's amazing how organised even the most unorganised person (read: me) can be when it comes to your passion! Haven't had this before, except back then when I used to dance 6 days / week and had a goal/dream to become professional.

  7. Love reading posts like these from other bloggers because it's always interesting to know why others love blogging as much as I do. I agree that the chance to create something all yours and have the space to get creative is SO worth it. :)

  9. I love feeling as though I'm connecting with people (especially as my disability has isolated me so much). I also have been helping other with disabilities (so they've told me) so although my progress and numbers are still slow and low I am going to keep going and hopefully will get some notice from disability companies not only to get to try products for them but also would love to try and change some to make them less clinical and boring and more funky!!!

  10. These are great points to keep a consistent blogging schedule! I've been blogging on and off for the past 17 years, and I would have to agree that consistency is the key. It makes writing easier, your time management skills improve, and coming up with things to write about comes naturally. My biggest problem these days is TIME. I need to find time to blog!

  12. Loved this post, such a good idea to write about why you love blogging, as it really is such an amazing thing! One of the reasons I love having a blog is because I know it's something I can always come back to in the future and always have all these posts I've worked so hard on, even one day for them to be there for my kids to see x

  18. Blogging is definitely an amazing journey. One of my favorite things has been to discover new blogs that I never knew existed before...and learning many new things! I often enjoy reading blogs that have nothing to do with my niche (food) and learning from them. And yeah, totally agree about the photography piece - my photography has gotten so much better than when I first began :)

  19. WOHOOO! I love blogging too. A lot of things you have mention are also some of my reasons why I love blogging! It's amazing how you connect with other people and they are so loving and supportive of what you are trying to do!

BASICALLY GREAT POST LOVE!

    I really want to get on board with twitter chats, but I'm honestly so unsure on how to parcipatate in them? Like who are you supposed to 'reply' to? And are you just allowed to join or are you invited?
    Much love, Caitylis x x
