Blogging.

Hello Lovelies.

Happy Sunday. I’m feeling creative today so I really wanted to get the laptop out and get typing.

I had this conversation earlier with my brother about blogging. He made the comment that blogging has become almost annoying as today, everyone and their mother call themselves bloggers.

This is something that put me off blogging for ages, and still sometimes does as I am reluctant to tell anyone that I have a blog.

You see I never like doing what everyone is doing. I like to do my own thing, be my own person in so many ways.

But I really like the idea of blogging. I love bloggers who pour their hearts out to their online readers. I love the opportunity of connecting with others across the world whom I have shared interests. I love that it’s a place where you can literally do/write anything.

The thing I don’t like is the way blogging is perceived. It’s not exactly a respected hobby/profession.

I’ve also found it hard to even figure out what I want to do with my blog. I’m not really sure which genre it follows or what type of things I want to talk about. To me my blog is still new and I’m still figuring out how this all works.

I know I want to bring content that causes people to think more about something and chat about something new. I’d love to build a great discussion in the comments section. I know I’ve uploaded posts about “the ideal summer” or “DIY Facial scrub” or even a couple shopping posts, but looking at them now I know they aren’t things I want to share here.

So sorry if you enjoyed them, there won’t really be any more.

What I imagine my blog to be is like a magazine. Full of articles regarding different topics,basically human interest pieces and real news.

I really don’t know how long I’ll last here, maybe I’ll keep going for years and maybe this will be the last post. (But probably not though) ๐Ÿ™‚

I really want to be a sort of Carrie Bradshaw type. I just want to type out a post as the thoughts come to my mind. Real life pondering from an 18 y/o Irish girl. Honesty and definitely realism.

I don’t care about the stats or the idea of making this into a business. I’m just here to speak my mind and explore my passion for writing.

Now that we’re into the second half of the year I’m going to consider this a fresh start for my blog. Expect the same but I suppose a little different also ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good luck with your fresh start! I also don’t really get why blogging has a bad rep, as long as we aren’t forcing it down people’s throats then who cares if we use it to express our thoughts. In my opinion if someone doesn’t like it then they don’t have to read it!

      Thanks so much for the lovely comment! I feel like I’m slowly getting to the point where I’m proud to say that I write a blog. It’s disappointing really because it’s such a creative outlet where literally anything can happy. It allows people to have a voice equal to all and share their passions. Hopefully things will change. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I am on a few motorbike forums and you often get people who appear just to spam links to their new motovlog channel. It’s annoying and spammy, and unfortunately when you don’t follow motovlogs it often means forum members only experience of motovlogs are that they are spammy and obnoxious. The same true for a particular subset of bloggers. It doesn’t help bloggers or vloggers reputations and it’s a behaviour seen all over the net. ๐Ÿ˜”

      That sorta thing gives us all a bad rep. ๐Ÿ˜”
