Why I love my blog

I’ve wrote about why I’m proud of my blog but I wanted to share with you all why I love my blog.

Some of you may like to read what I write, some of you may wonder why I write at all and some of you may even wonder what even is the point in blogging.

Well, for me, being able to write down my thoughts, feelings, any experiences I’ve had and to be able to document this journey and any memories I’ve made along the way makes me incredibly happy. I love to share all of this and more because all of this is important to me. I love the idea of one day being able to look back and read all of this, regardless of whether any one else reads or even cares what I have to write about.

Although I may not post new content daily, or sometimes even weekly, I can’t imagine not blogging. My blog has always been a way for me to clear my mind, to write down what it is that I might be experiencing during that point in my life, whether that be negative or positive and in turn, given me a safe place for me to pour all of this out.

Through blogging, I’ve made some great friends. It’s crazy to think I may never have got to know them had I not started my blog. Some of my closest blogging friends are Rebecca over at www.ourreubeadays.wordpress.com and Cristie who I follow on Instagram: Mummyhardlove as fellow mums they can totally relate to any parenting problems I may have faced and we have helped each other through some difficult, personal times too. Knowing these mums and knowing they have experienced the same motherhood struggles I have, reassured me and made me feel less alone.

So thank you both.

My blog cheers me up. We all talk about self help and the importance of mental health. I found what’s good for my soul and that’s my blog. My blog is what keeps me sane and makes me happy. It’s my own little space that is just for me, a place for me to talk openly and freely about whatever I like. I honestly believe we should all do more of the things that make our hearts sing and I’ve found that within my blog.

Without sounding like I’m blowing my own trumpet, I love that my blog has helped people. I feel like writing truthfully has allowed others who have read my blog to feel less ‘weird.’ I love my readers and I love reading comments and feedback from them. Especially the positive comments about how reading what I have wrote has helped them in some way. I feel privileged that I have been able to give back in some way to people simply just by doing what I love. And that’s writing.

Being able to earn some extra money and/or receive freebies by blogging is definitely a bonus. However, I do not earn thousands of pounds from my blog, in fact sometimes I earn nothing at all because in order to do that, you have to consistently put the work in and I have not always committed to my blog as much as I probably could. I’ve never denied this. But blogging for me has never been about the money. There are other reasons why I love blogging that are so much more meaningful than just making money. I feel fortunate just being able to work alongside some amazing brands and receiving fantastic products that I may not have discovered otherwise.

My blog has given me a purpose. I always feel like I’ve accomplished something the moment I complete a blog post and share it with you all. This sense of purpose really benefits me and makes all the time I put into my writing totally worth it.

I love my blog and I can’t wait to see where it takes me next. As for my readers, thank you all for reading and for all your continued support. Every time you leave me a like, comment or a share – I do a lil happy dance. So, thank you. I hope you enjoyed reading all about why I love my blog. Please let me know your thoughts by leaving me a comment.

Until next time,

Kirsti, xo
