Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! I thought it would be nice to do a more chilled post today and answer a question I’ve been asked a fair bit lately. Why did I start a blog?
I have always wanted to write a blog, I used to have one years ago. Not that I could remember what I was talking about or what the blog was even called if I’m honest, but I did. I just love the idea of having a place that is mine (hence the name of my blog), mine to write whatever I like. Whether that be beauty related or lifestyle or whatever takes my fancy that day.
All this blogging business is still really new but I am enjoying it so much. I think that’s the biggest thing for me, it’s making me happy. That is exactly what it is all about, being happy!
For such a long time I was contemplating the idea of starting a blog but somehow I’d talk myself out of the idea. This was usually down to confidence and not really wanting to put myself out there because I was worried about what people would think. Which when you think about that, it’s actually pretty sad that so many of us worry about what others think (one of my biggest problems for sure).
I think so many of us should take on the “I’m just gonna do me” attitude (which is what I am doing these days… well trying to). If you want to do something then just do it! Who cares what other people may say? Who cares if they don’t like it? If it is making you happy then surely that is more important than anything else?That is what some special people in my life have told me and I now tell myself the same thing.
So why have I started my blog you ask? It gives me a focus, makes me happy and I LOVE IT. I mean I even get excited seeing that people are reading it, which I am so pleased about btw. This year didn’t start the way I planned and a lot has changed and a lot still has to change. However me taking this leap (a pretty big leap if I do say so myself)and creating this place has surprisingly given me a lot more confidence. I mean don’t get me wrong at the start I was so nervous to even show my boyfriend who had been pushing me to do it for ages (thanks for the push though Elliott).
All I’m trying to say is just do what makes you happy, I know we have all heard that phrase so many times, but I can’t even tell you how happy I am now I’ve started my blog (finally). This doesn’t just count for those wanting to start a blog! It goes for ANYONE wanting to do ANYTHING!
Anyway… I don’t want to ramble on, but honestly that is why I just did it and created this little place! Just My Little Place! I knew it would make me happy and that is more important to me these days than anything else! So there you have it, that is why I started my blog with a pinch of advice thrown in!
Thank you for reading guys, just remember to do you & do what makes you happy!
