The 5 best things about blogging!
I’m going to be honest friends… this pastÂ week, I’ve been feeling pretty uninspired. Do you ever have those days when you want to give up and wonder why you’re even bothering pursuing something?? That’s how I’ve felt lately, so last night, I sat down and tried to brainstorm some blog post ideas. Again, nothing really inspired me (I think they call it a funk!) so I thought, let’s bring it back to basics. Why did I start blogging in the first place? What do I enjoy about it? How has it enriched my life? So here it is my friends… for you, but more importantly a reminder for ME… ForÂ when I’m feeling low and wanting to give up. The top 5 reasons I loveÂ blogging!
The free stuff! I’ll just get this one out of the way because I would be lying if I didn’t say this was a HUGE perk of blogging. When I started blogging, I didn’t even know this was a thing, and even if maybe subconsciously I did know this was a thing, never in a million years did I think I would be lucky enough to be chosen to represent these amazing companies! The fact that these brand trust me enough to represent themÂ tells me I must be doing something right!
It’s an amazing hobby! Before I started blogging, I had zero hobbies. I mean it. Â ZERO (unless you consider trolling tinder and crushing candy hobbies) I was bored but felt unmotivated and unfulfilled. Blogging gave me a reason to connect with people and step out of my comfort zone and instead of feeling like I’m wasting my life away, I finally feel like I have some sort of a purpose!
Â I get to showcase my creativity! I knew I loved to write but I had forgotten how much I love to CREATE! Blogging is like putting together an art project in a way and there is something satisfying about watching something come to lifeÂ from start to finish! From planning the outfits, to shootingÂ the photos, to editing, to writing, to coding, to sharing on social media, it’s fun to make something you can be proud of and try to find a way to be unique and stand out from the crowd!Â I get to pretend to be a model! Yes I know this is maybe a little vain, but I always wanted to be a model! I absolutely LOVE putting outfits together. Being able to styleÂ gorgeous looks and then prance around and smile for the camera is all this 5 foot 2 inch girl could ever dream of!Last but not least, I got to meet all of you! I had no idea the blogging community was such a little loving family! Â Just connecting with all ofÂ you inspiring ladies ALONEÂ makes blogging more than worth it!Â The encouragement and support I’ve received from all the other amazing boss babes from around the world is so much more than I could ever put into words!
(Among the unbelievable people I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with is the amazing, talented, patient Rory Coomey.Â I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today without him and couldn’t be happier to be able to call this superstar photographer my friend.)
