We are approaching the two-year anniversary of My Blurred World (there will be a dedicated post to that coming your way during this week). But, in honour of my blog’s birthday week, I thought I’d start it off with a post all about how blogging has changed my life.
Blogging has changed my life in more ways than I ever thought it would so I thought I’d share some of the ways it has done so with you all today.
Blogging has allowed me to express and share my passion for writing which is something I’ve never been able to do before.
My blog has been a platform for me to showcase my writing and express my love for it and has allowed me to develop my skills. It’s showed me that I have a true passion for writing and has proven to me that having a career as a writer would be something I’d dream of.
It’s allowed me to share my writing with so many people across the globe and I’ve received so many comments applauding my writing style which is something I never thought would happen, this has boosted my confidence when writing and has made me believe in myself and my skills.
Both writing and reading blog posts has allowed me to learn so much about a variety of different topics. I’ve learned a lot about myself by writing this blog but I’ve also learned a lot by reading others’ posts. I’ve gained an insight into people’s lives, learned about their experiences and how they overcome hurdles they stumble upon in their lives, this has been a real eye-opener and has helped me in so many ways. I’ve also learned many things about beauty and fashion, tips and tricks I would have never of learned by reading a magazine. I believe that everything I now know about beauty and fashion, I’ve learned from blogging and reading blogs. It’s amazing how many lessons fellow bloggers can teach you.
I’ve had a number of opportunities since starting my blog including having my first ever radio interview at the end of last year. This was something I never dreamed would ever happen so I was absolutely amazed when asked to do it. I was so nervous but I think it turned out ok in the end and it was definitely a turning point for both me and my blog. I’ve also had opportunities such as being a writer for a website called My Trending Stories and also being a brand ambassador for an online shop called Coconut Lane who sell amazing iPhone and Macbook cases, wall art, jewelry and so much more. These are all opportunities which i am honestly so grateful for and they would have never have been possible without my blog.
I’m not one who has ever had many friends but creating my blog and becoming a part of the blogging community has allowed me to make new friendships which I couldn’t be more grateful for. I’ve been very lucky to have met my best friend through blogging which is something I never imagined would happen. Talking and engaging with new people is such an amazing experience and is definitely one of the most special things about blogging.
So those are a few of the ways blogging has changed my life, I hope you all enjoyed reading them.
Are you a blogger? If so, let me know how blogging has changed your life, if it has. I would love to hear from you.
