My Journey Through Blogging

Hey there!

On rainy afternoons, during the cold winter months, I love to spend time scrolling through my blog, reading and cringing at some of my very first posts, watching how my writing has progressed after starting my little slice of the Internet.


Blogging was something I had always been inspired to do. From a young age, writing and reading were my favourite hobbies and there was never a moment where my head wasn't sunk into a good novel. Growing up, my lifelong career was to be an author - just as successful as JK Rowling and Jacqueline Wilson. My mind was constantly filled with new and exciting ideas, which would flow out onto the pages of my beloved notebooks. As the years went by, I had a collection of short stories, which I was almost certain would get published. However, these ideas were soon abandoned and the idea of blogging seemed alien to me. Nevertheless, it was a hurdle I was determined to cross and after some encouragement from my friends, I attempted to draft my first ever blog post - and here I am today!

Before I started my little slice of the Internet, I was a shy, timid young teen - lacking immensely in self-esteem and rarely had the confidence to even express my opinion. I never had many close friends I could rely on and had nowhere to display my feelings without being judged - but let's not allow this to become too deep! Blogging has had many benefits for me and I definitely do not regret allowing this to become my hobby. I've made many close blogging friends through a number of platforms including Twitter and emails and value them immensely! 

One thing I have learnt from my blogging experience is that it's extremely easy to get carried away when sharing a rant or expressing an opinion. It's seriously important that you refrain yourself from doing this, as you don't want to offend your readers.


I never expected to see my blog grow this much, but as I've blossomed as a writer, the views have increased. I truly am proud of my efforts to continue with this and appreciate the time taken to read my posts. Thanks to every single one of you who supports my writing habits - it really does mean a lot to me and I'm lucky to be rewarded for doing what I love!

Bye for now! Xxx
