Happy Monday Y’all! For week 5 of the 52 Week Blog Challenge, I am writing about Why I Started Blogging. I did a previous post about this back in October but I am going to add a little to it.
Before I had started blogging, I was obsessed with reading other blogs. I loved being able to read what bloggers had to share about their day-to-day life events. The best part about reading blogs is that I always learned something new. Who doesn’t love being able to read about different ways to style outfits, product reviews or just being able to relate to an event that occurred in the bloggers life.
I began blogging in March 2015 (I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for almost a year now). I had been talking to one of my girlfriends about wanting to start a blog and she was like me too! Once we had a game plan together we began thinking of posts to write and took off from there. We both wanted to be able to share our love for beauty, fashion and everything in between. So at the time when Sweet Tea & Hydrangeas was started, I had a co-blogger. It was great being able to start a blog together because we were both so scared to blog because we were unsure of what was to come. Of course after blogging for a few months together, we decided that we wanted to have our own blogs. I am so glad that I decided to take that leap because it has been well worth it.
I love being able to have my own little space that is mine. The blog is my outlet to express myself by sharing my thoughts and experiences. I also enjoy being able to interact with other’s through my blog. I know not everyone will read my blog or care what I have to but if one person reads my blog and enjoys it, that makes me happy. Blogging brings me a lot of joy. I am so proud of how much Sweet Tea & Hydrangeas has grown. Now with that being said…
In the 11 months that I have been blogging, I have learned that blogging is not easy by any means. It takes a lot of work and time. Something I didn’t quite realize when I first started this blog. My fears of no one liking or reading my blog has went away, along with a lot of my other blogging fears.
So that’s why I started blogging. If you’re a blogger why did you start blogging? If you’re not a blogger, have you though about starting a blog?
