Why do I like blogging?


I created this blog not that long ago because I love writing. Some of you probably already knew that, but what you might not know is that I was quite tired of only writing about beauty and fashion. My previous blog, which is still up in case you want to take a look, was a great way for me to start blogging and get into that world. Without it, I would have never started uploading content to YouTube because I've never been confident and the mere thought of filming myself for the world to see was terrifying.

I enjoyed that blog for a while and, even though I still love beauty and fashion, I don't feel the need to write about it all the time. In fact, I kind of hate it a little bit; let me explain. I want the content that I put up on the internet to have value to myself, and I don't want to upload just for the sake of it, because I feel like it's a chore. That's what my fashion/beauty blog has been to me recently, and that's the reason why I haven't posted there in a while. All my needs to talk about those topics are filled with my youtube channel, and taking more time to say the same thing feels pointless. I know it's a great outlet for people to see it, to get more views, etc, but that's not why I'm doing any of it.

Blogging is a hobby for me, and it should be fun. I'm not making any money through it and if it's going to take up all my free time, I better enjoy what I'm doing. My personality has changed a bit in the past 4 years and I've grown to be proud of the things I like. I used to be scared of people judging me for liking certain things, but I've outgrown that phase and this blog came into place. A lot of people won't care about what movies I watch, and what books I read, or what my thoughts are on certain topics, but I like writing about it. I'm pretty serious about writing, actually, and any practice is good. I enjoy it. That should be enough.

I'm not sure what the whole point of this post is, but I did want to write it, and I'm having fun doing so. If no one reads it, so be it. If people do read it and like it, even better. Thank you.
