Since becoming a blogger, I have gained so much more confidence in my writing and myself, and have felt happier in general life too.
I have always been one for writing things down. When I was younger, I would keep a diary, and I have always had a passion for writing. I started a blog last year which I updated every now and then, but I didn’t really get into it or meet other bloggers that much.
A month ago, I decided to start fresh and create a new blog to update as often as I can. I set up a separate email account and twitter account (@bigdreams1993) to go with it, to keep myself as organised as possible.
The moment I had created it, I loved it. Within the first night, so many other bloggers welcomed me to the blogging community, and I immediately felt at home. I honestly couldn’t believe how nice and how understanding everybody was. Since then, I have grown to learn more and more about other bloggers, do guest posts for bloggers and invite them to do guest posts for myself, and I have even worked with other bloggers on collaboration posts.
It has now been almost 4 weeks since I first started my blog, and I do not regret it at all. I have met so many amazing people, got to know more about them all, share my thoughts and views with other bloggers, and see the world from hundreds of different perspectives.
I have always been a shy, self-conscious girl – I would always be too shy to show other people my writing – but since blogging, I have came right out of my shell. I have found a place to feel calm, welcome and most importantly be myself. Blogging has already given me many opportunities to further my writing career, and each day throws new opportunities at me.
This is why I love blogging 🙂
