Lifestyle | Reasons why I blog
So, here I am now going into my third year of blogging. It's been fun but not without some difficult times thrown in. I also never thought I would get here, I'm not very good at sticking to a hobby, crocheting - gone, knitting - anyone want to buy some wool, crafting- yeah, lets forget about that!
So, why do I enjoy blogging still? Here are the reasons:
1. New Skills
I've set up a blog, learnt how to adjust coding, edit photos and done some video editing on YouTube, phew. There have been times when I've tried to do something and ended up crying in frustration - but I have persevered, this year I'm ready to take it further and learn even more!
2. Gaining Confidence
I've come a long way in my confidence journey, going to events on my own has definitely pushed me outside of my comfort zone. Before I started blogging it's something that I never thought I would do, I rarely did much alone, but now I'm getting more comfortable with going out alone. As a part of my goals I'm going to work on my social skills, I want to talk to people more at events and not just be the smiley one but the friendly one too!
3. Wardrobe Confidence
There was one point in my life where I only wore black trousers, and a nice top. The weekend would come and oh, out come some black trousers, different to my work ones but still black. I couldn't find jeans to fit and dresses, well they were for a special occasion only. I've definitely come a long way from there but I still feel like I want to find my own personal style, will 2016 be the year that I do?
4. Travel/Meeting People
I have been to London so many times since I started blogging and during 2014 I went on my own three times! Now this might not be a big deal for some people but for me it was huge, apart from getting lost the first time in which I ended up panicking and crying in the middle of a busy street, my map reading is awful! This year I'm hoping to go to more places and meet more lovely PS bloggers!
5. The Hobby
Blogging is definitely the right hobby for me, the fact that I've kept up with it for this long is a miracle, as I said at the beginning I usually start a new hobby and within weeks I've given it up!
