Why Do You Blog?
As I mentioned earlier on in the week, I had a bit of a loss of love for blogging last week. (Sorry blog, it was me, not you, honest) and while it has been a much better week for me in terms of blogging for the enjoyment of it, it is still something that I am working at quite hard (hard-ish, ok, i'm basically floating through, but you know what I mean?)
When I first started blogging, I wasn't in a great place, I wasn't who I wanted to be, and quite frankly, I was an angry person with no outlet. Big Fashionista BECAME that outlet, Big Fashionista almost became a person in her own right, the person that I WANTED TO BE.
And now four years on, I am happy, content, and in a really good place (Leeds) and so I have lost a bit of the reason why I STARTED blogging.
The great thing about a blog, be it a fashion blog, beauty, lifestyle or even just an online diary, is that it gives you a permanent reminder of how much you have grown or changed as a person. Things that perhaps I USED to get angry about, now do not bother me. I look back at old posts and sometimes, I have changed my opinion since I wrote the original post. (usually due to reading a great comment showing a different opinion that perhaps I hadn't thought of, or just a comment driving me to finding out more)
But the reason I continue, is because I love to write, I could not even imagine not having this space that I can call my own, (With you guys dropping round for coffee and hugs in the comments)
Now high-five the cat.
But to cut what is quite frankly just a long brain fart (with no follow-through) short, I just want to ask you bloggers out there,
Why Do YOU blog?
What started you blogging and what drives you on?
I am really interested in why you do it, are you like me and just couldn't imagine not doing it? Or do you yearn for the day that your blog relinquishes its hold over you?
Let me know.
