Today I’m asking you to think about this simple sounding question, because I want us all to consider what blogging brings to our lives and for that to make us happy.
I can only speak for myself, but I have to admit that this little space on the internet brings me a lot of joy. It has allowed you lovely people to be in my life for a start! When I wake up in the morning, I feel so excited to think about what post is going live today. When I feel stressed or anxious, taking a few moments to think about the time I will get to spend blogging calms me down. As I fall asleep, I often think about bloggy things (please tell me I am not alone in this!).
I can’t believe all of the things blogging has taught me. Somehow I have taught myself to use WordPress and create graphics and even do simple coding. There’s something about blogging that makes me feel that anything is possible. Since becoming a blogger, I have also developed other creative passions; written the first draft of my novel, learnt crochet and published my first book, all because blogging has made me believe I can reach out, achieve my dreams and expand my online brand. There’s much more to come!
There are some ways in which I can’t truly express what The Lilac Linnet means to me. It has helped me in ways that I am not ready to share yet. Most of all I am grateful that I took that step to become a blogger, and I can’t imagine my life without this creative outlet.
Now it’s your turn…. how do you feel about your blog?
