Blogging has been a huge part of my life these past seven years. It has enabled me to forge a career that I love, has enabled me to make some lifelong friends and has come a long way from when I first started, sitting in our little cottage at my desk wondering what to do. Since then, so much has happened. The blog has seen the birth of two kids, an engagement, a whole new career.
I love blogging for so many reasons but here are just a few:
You can make a living from it
Not everyone will want to and that’s fine. Some may do it full time, some may do it part time but the opportunity to make a living from doing something you love is there. Whether you rely solely on your blog, your social media or freelance on the side – something that has become possible because of blogging, the fact that you can make a living from it still blows my mind.
You can make awesome connections
I’ve made so many awesome friends and some great connections with people I’ve worked with, thanks to blogging. I’ve made connections I never thought possible and all through this tiny little thing I put on the internet one day. How cool is that?
There are so many different types of blog out there
You will never be bored. If you have an interest, there is bound to be a blog out there for it and perhaps even a whole community based around it. Whether you are interested in a general life blog, you’re a woman looking for fashion and beauty, you’re looking for a business blog with all the up to date news, a blog to give you advice or perhaps even to teach you a new skill, there’s bound to be one out there for you.
