Blogging has become somewhat a trend amongst us internet lovers. And we all do it for different reasons. Some run their business from it and some enjoy sharing our everyday goings on! Whatever it may be the blogging community is strong and ever-growing. Every now and again we bloggers need to remind ourselves why we do what we do. Here’s what I love about blogging:
Giving advice has always been something I have done whether it’s been asked for or not (call it a sin?!) so blogging advice freely based on personal experiences is something I love to do. What makes it all worth while is when I am told that the advice was helpful or welcomed.
Blogging myself also means I like to seek my own advice through my fellow bloggers. The blogging community is so vast there is a wide range of perceptions and help out there.
I’ve never been artistic and I don’t play any instruments but blogging has kept the creator in me alive. Since starting LFTN I am able to try new things, design and try out new ways of writing. Not only that but writing posts is my way of being a writer (of which I definitely am not).
APPRECIATING THE SMALL THINGS
Living for the Now is not just about being in the moment but it’s about appreciating what’s around me and what I do daily. It sounds silly but I’ve gained a passion in beauty products, I pay attention to fashion and I am constantly intrigued by what’s around me. This way I can share it with you guys via the blog, Twitter or Instagram and it may encourage you to look at what’s around you.
It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who photographs my food making my other half wait before he can touch it. It’s a fab feeling knowing that I’m not the only one who feels certain pressures in society and has particular outlooks on political debates. Blogging has made me want to follow other bloggers who in turn have opened my eyes and shared opinions with me making me feel a little less alone in my ideologies.
LFTN is where I can be myself or sometimes even just be the person I want to be. My blog pushes me to take my own advice as well as share my feelings about certain topics including how you should speak your mind online and why you should wait to respond to texts etc. It’s my passive aggressive way of voicing my feelings whilst offering you lovely people some advice when you’re in the same position.
I did a blog post over on The Wonder Forest on how blogging is great for self-development. You can read it here
