5 Reasons I Love Blogging

BEING A BLOGGER IS A SERIOUS ROLLERCOASTER

Heading back to school in these past few weeks has been mayhem and I've been completely swamped with a jam-packed schedule. School work, blogging, friends, family, writing, waitressing - and it all takes its toll. It's easy to complain about how hectic its all been, but looking back on these past few weeks and taking a moment to reflect on my current situation I've got so much to be grateful for - including this little corner of the internet.
To put it simply blogging is amazing and a creative and emotional outlet I'm eternally grateful for. Some days it can be so much hard work and it's feels like a twenty-four-hour job, but I love it so much and I thought I'd share with you all a few reasons why...




A CREATIVE OUTLET
I'm currently studying GCSE's at school (have a quick google if you don't live in England), and a GCSE I chose to study is Textiles which is a HUUUGE creative outlet to relieve stress and tension of all that studying. However it is an incredible amount of work and stress: sketchbooks, final pieces, photography, design boards and so much more (I'll give you a tour of my sketchbooks one day if you like), it can all be so overwhelming. However on my little page I'm not being graded or pressured, it's my own little creative outlet to do what I like when I like.


NEW OPPORTUNITIES
One of things I love so much about blogging are the opportunities I'm offered that I wouldn't be offered in any other area. A favourite 'perk' of mine is the fact I'm fortunate enough to receive free ARCs (advanced reader copies) of incredible new books from amazing publishers, often before their anticipated release date. This incredible privilege and opportunity to read and review these books before publication is something I'm incredibly grateful for and doubt I would be able to do without my little blog.


SHARING MY LIFE
I honestly love being able to share my life with you all. Yes, I love sharing holidays, hauls and outfits, but I also love sharing all of my thoughts towards a huge range of subjects from self-love to developments in my own life such as: Learning How To Be An Optimist. I get to share my personal journey through ALLLLL the emotions with all of you and that's something I looove to do.

THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE
What I love even more than sharing my life, are your incredible comments on each and every post. Reading all of your comments always brings a smile to my face and hearing all of your own pieces of advice and thoughts on different matters is always so interesting. I've met so many incredible people through blogging and can't wait to meet even more and work with even more people on incredible content.



A TRUE PASSION

Blogging is a lot of work and at times can be all-consuming, but underneath all the chaos and planning, blogging is a true passion of mine. Every blog post I publish, every photoshoot I plan, every comment I reply to is something I love to do and I hope to never stop :)
And thank you to my wonderful sister for taking all these pictures! x

  5. Blogging is a passion of mine too and I'm so glad that I've created this little space. There are so many people you get in touch with around the globe, though it has some negative sides as well, it is all very time consuming and social media can be fake sometimes.

  18. I double majored in computer science and linguistics, so blogging was certainly a creative outlet for me! Honestly, I don't know how my computer science friends do computer science all. the. time. // I don't accept any sponsorships on my blog, but I love love love receiving ARCs. It feels so special to be able to read books before publication! I never have to worry about not having any books to read :3 Sooo thankful for this opportunity! // Yes yes yes @ the wonderful people! I'm not very concerned with stats and followers on my blog or social media, but I always look forward to comments, and for me, it's the most meaningful interaction in the blogosphere <3 // I love how I document my life on my blog, I love having it to look back on, and I love how it makes me think deeper about my experiences whilst I'm writing up my new blog posts :) -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
