Hey guys! Welcome back. I thought I would talk about my blogging journey and give you guys a little insight in where I started, why I started, what it means to me, and how I keep going. I really hope you enjoy this!
I first want to start off with a confession. This is not my first time blogging. This is not the first blog I ever created. There have been a few before. However, the timing and content just wasn’t there. I wasn’t serious about it. I just created it for no reason other than the fact that I was bored on a random Wednesday night or whatever and regardless. they didn’t stick.
This time was different. This time I was intentional when starting my blog. I started blogging in June 2017 and haven’t stopped since. I don’t post everyday as I would like to, but I post as much as I can. Sometimes inspiration takes a couple of days and sometimes it happens two or three times a day. It’s a weird cycle of being a writer.
I started this over the summer because I wanted to have something to devote my time to and I wanted a place where I could pour out my heart and talk to anyone who would listen. I started at a time in my life when I felt like I didn’t really have anyone that I could talk to that would understand. So I decided to start blogging as an outlet.
Starting a blog can be overwhelming I quickly learned. There are so many technicalities you have to be aware of. You have to choose the right background, organization, and there has to be some way for you to communicate with your followers. Every blog is different, but sometimes people expect the same thing from all of them. I never knew just how much upkeep there was with blogging until I started again. When I really started investing in my blog, I realized that it isn’t as easy as I may have thought it was.
I never really intended on my blog becoming all that it has. I only expected to have a few followers, which I never expected them to consistently read my posts. I had an organization system, kind of. I had actually planned out all of my posts for the whole year, only to find out that I may not care about that topic on that specific date. I thought I would talk about college and my experiences (which I do), but I have also talked about things I never thought I would talk about. I thought I would focus on talking about things that mean something to me. When I first started my intention was to say things for other people. Sometimes we have a hard time figuring out what to say, but then we find someone who has written exactly what we need to say. So we share that. That is what I had intended on doing. I never thought it would develop into this amazing journey.
But things change. They will probably change again. There is no way of telling what the future holds. One day I won’t be a college student anymore, so I will write about whatever I am experiencing at that point in life. I write what I know and right now this is what I know. I am thankful that I have this blog and such amazing followers that inspire and encourage me everyday. You are the reason I get to keep going!
