Tag | Reasons I love Blogging

20 August 2013

Hello everyone! So a few weeks ago I was browsing a few blogs and reading tag posts when I came across this one on the gorgeous Kayleigh aka Couturegirl's blog. She actually created this tag herself and I absolutely love the idea of expressing why we love blogging and the idea of inspiring other people to create their own blogs and space on the internet. I needed a good push to start my blog and I am so glad I did as now I could not imagine my life without it. The aim of this blog is, as the title says, give five reasons you love blogging, give your blogging aim, give a blogging tip and the name of one blogger who has inspired you along your blogging journey. 

So the reasons I love blogging so much are as follows: 
Inspiration: This is the main reason I blog. I have been so inspired by other bloggers, photography and make up this past year and this is why I finally decided to start a blog so I could try out new make up items and step out of my comfort zone and try new things. 

Confidence: I am normally an incredibly shy person. I stick to people and things I know rather than trying to meet new people. I was incredibly scared and worried before I started a blog however in the short space of time I've had it, it has given me such confidence and made me want to say yes to trying more things as you never know where they might lead you. 

Passionate People: Blogging has led me to come across so many amazing people who share the same interests as me and are just as passionate about make up and beauty related things like I am now. I've spoken to so many girls on here and twitter who I would consider friends and I wouldn't change that for the world. 

Learning New Things: New products, new ways to photograph products, writing skills, how to put a message across in a positive way...these are all things I have learned whilst having this little blog. It has taught me so much. I have always had an interest in journalism however, I never pursued it as I never knew if I would be persuasive enough or if people would understand what I was saying or people would just thing 'she hasn't got a clue what she is talking about'. However the response I have had has been incredible. The comments I receive make my day and with the risk of sounding a little vain, has taught me that I am actually good at this and that I should keep on going. 

Making The Rules: Blogging is my own personal space on the internet where I decide what goes on it and when it goes on and I absolutely love having that power. I can literally talk about whatever I want to talk about. There is no set rules. Yes this might be a beauty themed blog but I will talk about lifestyle, I'll include fashion and nail posts, I'll include hauls and it just makes me very happy to know that people can't judge me based on a bunch of rules and how I 'shouldn't talk about this'. There is no pressure to talk about a certain product or do certain things and I absolutely love that. Yes I might review a product after it has been massively hyped up say, two years ago but I will still give my two cents as there will be people out there who perhaps haven't tried it yet. I make the rules and I love it. 

Blogging Aim
Now that I have spoken about the reasons as to why I love blogging so much I will talk about my blogging aims. To be honest I don't really have an aim. Short term wise I would love to reach 100 followers by the end of this year. I know a blog isn't all about followers but to know that there are currently 73 of you following my blog absolutely makes my day. I love logging into blogger everyday and seeing a certain new face pop up at the side of my blog. It makes my day that people actually want to hear what I have to say. Long term wise I'd love to just keep on enjoying my blog, taking photos and writing about the products I love or dislike. Like I said previously, blogging has given me a lot of confidence already so maybe youtube videos could be on the cards in the future. Blogging really does open a lot of doors and I can't wait to walk through them. 

Blogging Tip 
Blog because you are passionate about it and not because of the freebies or followers. I cannot stress this enough. When I first started my blog I was so frustrated that the follower count wasn't rising and I wanted to pack it in. Then with some advice from a friend who convinced me I was good at this I decided to keep on trying and not give up. 4-5 months down the line and I have had over 11K views on my blog and I consider that absolutely fantastic. Good things come to those who wait and who work hard. If you love blogging do it for that reason. Don't do it because everyone else is or to get free products to review. You will need to prove yourself and it is very noticeable to people if you do not actually enjoy what you do and are just doing it for the sake of it. Do what you love and love what you do. 

Inspirational Blogger 
When it comes to actually setting up my own blog it was actually Zoella who inspired me. I love her passion, her enthusiasm, her writing style and her photography skills. I would check her blog literally every day and just admire how hard she's worked on her blog to get to where she is today. She's the first blogger I ever came across and if I hadn't have come across her blog I don't believe I'd be typing this up today. If you search Zoella's youtube and go back to her earlier videos you will see that she has actually done a blogging tips video with Louise aka SprinkleofGlitr and it is absolutely amazing or another blogger Isabella Spright ( has also done a you-tube video which inspired me even more. Links to both of the videos will be linked below.

In conclusion to this post I absolutely love blogging and couldn't currently imagine my life without it. As I am currently unemployed it is also keeping me sane at the moment as well. If you would like to do this tag then please do! I linked Kayleigh's blog at the beginning of this post if you'd like to check out her blog or click HERE for her version of this tag. If you do this as well please link it at the end so I can have a read as I would love to read why people actually blog like they do. It doesn't matter what kind of blog you are I will read everyone's if you link it!
