So this is a bit different from what I usually post but change is good, right? I've been blogging for well over a year now and I've learnt quite a few things during that time. I'm quite a changeable person, I tend to get bored very easily (you might be able to tell that from my ever changing blog design haha) so the fact that I'm still blogging after all this time is a huge achievement for me. Blogging has definitely boosted my confidence - I guess its easier when you're sat behind your computer & this is probably why I wont attempt youtube.
When it comes to blogging, I think of myself as a small fish in a very big pond. Its easy to compare yourself to other bloggers, especially those considered 'bigger bloggers' & wonder if your blogging in the right way, if what you're writing about is any good, if your photographs look ok etc. I think when it comes to blogging, you should write about what YOU want to write about. At the end of the day, its your personal space and you should do what makes you happy. When I first started this blog, I didn't really know what direction I wanted to go, although I consider it primarily a 'beauty' blog, I've realised its ok to think outside the box and to write about other topics, such as fashion or more personal posts.
Whether its in real life or online, you can never please everyone. There is always going to be someone who doesn't like you or your blog, which is completely ok. It would be a really boring world if we all liked the same thing and never had opinions. I used to be really self conscious in my teens, but I've finally learnt to let it go, heck if I worried about what everyone thought about me I would never get out of bed in the morning. Life is too short, if there does come a point when I begin to hate blogging then I'll stop. Right now I love blogging. I have found something I'm really passionate about and I have a genuine love for.
Bloggers are a huge community - Beauty bloggers in particular. I totally believe that anyone can be part of it, I'm lucky to have spoken to some truly lovely people through blogging and have found some amazing blogs to read. Moral of the story is that blogging is an incredible thing - you never know what might come of it or who you might speak to/meet!
*I could write a lot more but I'll start to ramble and end up writing an essay so I'll leave it there for now*
Thanks for reading
