Why I Made A Blog

I made my blog in 2013 but only really got into it in 2014 to make me less bored of being unemployed. My other reason was because I'd found other blogs at the time Zoella and Sprinkle of glitter and thought I'd give it ago. (FYI I'm not a Zoella fan anymore). I then found others who I can relate to more such as Brogan Tate and Grace Victory.

As I said up there ^ I made my blog to keep me busy while looking for a job and I'm glad I made one because it's made a huge difference. I have written about a lot of things from beauty, life and Fragile X which has been a big hit on my blog I'm glad I've shared my experiences, as I'd never thought about doing so.

I don't make money from my blog 1. I don't know how and 2. it would be to complicated as I'm on universal credit so I'm not sure how that would work and 3. It's still really just a hobby and I don't think I'd want to do it as a job right now. I'm pretty happy with my blog as I have managed to make improvements such as I recently added a navigation bar took me so long to figure that out! I've also added my social media platforms which I'm glad about.

I sometimes wish I had more followers but I try not to let it get to me and try not to think its about numbers but it is hard. I don't get a lot of comments either which also makes me wonder why I have a blog. I am trying to tell myself numbers aren't important as I enjoy writing about things regardless of how many followers I get.

I get my inspiration from other bloggers such as Brogan Tate, Grace Victory (my current faves) I always feel more motivated to get things done and be successful in life which I am aiming for. I do think that maybe one day I'd like to grow my blog and possibly earn money from it but for now I think it's alright how it is.

Since blogging I've started writing about more important subjects such as periods and relationships as these rarely get talked about. It's good to share my experiences and I hope that others relate too.
Writing about Fragile X has helped so many people as they can relate and I really like that I'm not alone.

I try to share my posts as and when I can, I made a Facebook page for it and at first I thought I'd delete it because I thought it was pointless. But I've kept it and so far it has 66 likes you can like it here

  1. Hey!

    I really enjoyed reading this! Something stood out to me as I read this post. You haven't given up. Despite not having your desired readership figures or desired comments you're still at it.

    I truly, truly believe that if you keep at it, it'll all work out.

    Congrats on figuring out the Navigation bar! You haven't given up. If you had, you would have stopped learning (or trying to learn).

    You have a new follower!


    1. Hello! :) thank you for your comment it's much appreciated!.

      I've learnt that I enjoy blogging and numbers aren't hugely important and I shouldn't worry about it too much.

      Thanks! that took some working out but I got there eventually! I'd still like to make other changes soon.

      Thanks again for your comment and for following :)
