My Four Favorite Things About Blogging

As I’m sitting here preparing to write this post, I am beyond frustrated. Today I intended to put a fashion-related blog up. However, the minute I went outside to take the photos, it started pouring down rain. So I had to scrap that post and come up with something entirely different.

Today I thought I would share some of my favorite things about blogging. I started my blog back in August and I definitely believe it was one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made. I believe these reasons have really shaped my love for blogging.

#1 Ranting about what’s on my mind 

One of the absolute best things about having a blog is the ability to take whatever thoughts are running through your head, condense them into a post, and publish them online. When I’m going through something difficult, I think it’s the easiest way to make sense of it all. When you’re writing, you’re forcing yourself to analyze a situation from all different angles and perspectives. For me, it makes challenges seem less difficult. Plus, it gives you the chance to hear from other people who have gone through similar situations. There’s nothing more comforting than to know that others have felt the same things as you.

#2 Becoming more productive

I think that I’ve mentioned this before, but I definitely believe that blogging has made me overall a more productive person. Blogging is a demanding hobby. It seems like there are dozens of different things you could be doing for your blog at all times. And if you fall behind, it can be incredibly overwhelming. Blogging has really taught me how important it is to budget your time. I’ve learned to use my spare moments efficiently and how spending even the shortest time can be used to do something productive.

#3 Interacting with other bloggers

Engaging with other bloggers has been one of my favorite things about blogging since I first started. It’s so exciting to meet people who are both similar and different from yourself. Hearing about other people’s thoughts and experiences has given me a lot of perspective. It’s certainly a great thing about the blogosphere.

#4 Learning about myself 

In an older post, I talked about what I think it means to find your blogging voice. I mentioned that I thought the process is really all about self-discovery and I think it applies to blogging in general as well. As much as blogging is about sharing your hobbies and interests, I believe that it’s also about discovering them. When I created my blog, I had no idea how much I enjoyed creating and photographing flatlays. It’s amazing how much I’ve realized about myself so far from this experience.

 

What are your favorite things about blogging? 

Sincerely,

Paige

  1. I love blogging for interacting with other bloggers too. Before I started I didn’t really realize how many ways there are to find and connect with people in the blogging world! It is a lot of fun and I am enjoying it too 🙂

  2. Great list I agree with all✨ I love blogging for being able to be committed to something I love doing- reading and writing. And also connecting with others with those same interests. I don’t meet too many people that enjoy the same things I do or that just like to read/write in general so it’s good to come here and connect that way.

  3. Blogging definitely made me more productive, especially when I thought I was disorganized and have no time. When I actually got to blogging, I realized I’m a lot more organized than I gave my self credit for 😜. Most defiantly a journey of self discovery ☺️.

  4. I think this is a fantastic list and I completely agree with everything on here! I also love blogging because I’m able to track what was going on in my life at a certain point in time, even if I don’t always post personal type things, theres still little nuggets of what was going on in my life at the time and it’s nice to be able to look back on.

  5. I’m yet another person that agrees with you on all points! I’ve learned so much about myself through this entire process and have found that I grow and evolve as my blog does too! And of course, I’ve loved meeting awesome bloggers (like you!) too.

    1. It’s definitely amazing how much blogging teaches you about yourself! Looking back on old blog posts makes me realize how much I’ve changed as a person just in the last few months. And meeting other bloggers is definitely one of the best parts!

  6. I think for me one of my favourite things about blogging has been the skills I’ve gained because of it. Before blogging I had no idea how to use my canon camera let alone the manual settings and now that all pretty much feels like a cake walk to me!
