Happy Friday, everyone! Are you as ready for a weekend as I am? This week was jam packed with crazy days, so I can’t wait to sleep in and reboot.
I woke up this morning in an amazing, light hearted and heavily spirited mood, and even though I didn’t have a post planned for the day, I knew I wanted to come say hello and check in with all of you before we’re off for the weekend. We’ve done a lot this week here – set some goals, met other bloggers, and even started spring cleaning. So I thought today, we could keep I’d keep it light, and share something a lot of bloggers have been talking about lately – why I blog.
My blogging journey has been a long one filled with lot’s of bumps and curves. I honestly can’t fully count the number of year’s I’ve been blogging. But, oddly enough, I can count the number of years that I have called myself a blogger. Because I think there is definitely a difference, between someone who has a blog and someone who considers herself or himself a blogger. I had many a blog throughout my high school, and even middle school, years. But it wasn’t until 2011 that I really stepped into this thing and became a blogger. And man, am I happy I stepped in.
If you would have told me four years ago that I would have this blog, and share on these topics, I might nod and chuckle, but I certainty wouldn’t believe you. Now, if you ask me what I’d like to be doing in four years, I will likely read you a list of things – and this blog would be on it.
I blog to keep myself creative, and to challenge my own creativity. I’m always thinking of new ideas; for posts, series, graphics or ventures. Coming to this space pushes me to think beyond my own creative confines. I’m always learning new things and refreshing old skills.
I’ve also met some of the most incredibly kind and creative souls through blogging. I’ve gotten the chance to guest post and collaborate with people who bring out the absolute best in me. I love meeting people through this space, and getting the chance to connect and share with people from all over the world.
Being a blogger motivates me, inspires me, and keeps me plenty busy. It’s a job, a hobby, a passion and a skill that I continue to cultivate every day.
Why do you blog?
