The 3 Reasons I'm Blogging!

To blog or not to blog? That is the question!


About a month ago I decided to start blogging every Thursday (I even threw some extras in when special projects came up) and I’m so glad I got in that routine!


I was talking to a friend the other day on the matter - she said she wanted to start a fashion blog but wasn’t sure if she was ready. She had the same thoughts I had a few months ago: is it oversaturated? What would I write about? Who’s going to read it? GIRL, I GETCHA.


After talking it out though, I felt like I could break down all of my thoughts into 3 main reasons I AM blogging! I hope this helps anyone who is thinking about starting a blog - you might find it’s for you or you might find joy doing something completely different, and that’s OKAY!


1. It’s not oversaturated.

Let’s just get this one out of the way. As long as you have your own thoughts (which you do!) there’s no such thing as too many blogs. That’s the beauty of them! You are your own person, so your blog will be too.


2. It might help someone!

Y’all know I can’t get through a post without a little cheeeese in it. But seriously - if you have the opportunity to brighten one person’s day then do it! And if blogging is your way to do it, then double do it! I think this is a really important thing to remember. It can be easy to get caught up in upping your SEO, checking your analytics, etc - but don’t forget about the heart behind your words. I’m not saying my blog is like the Mother Teresa of blogs and I’m just going around making the world an amazing place - no, not at all. I’m talking about if one person - literally one person - says “I read your blog and it made me realize xxx” then that’s what it’s all about!


3. I like it.

The most obvious one but also the most overlooked!! Do you like to write? Like do you like to sit there and put your thoughts on paper - or do you dread it? It sounds so obvious but if you don’t like writing, then blogging miiiiight not be for you. And again, that’s OKAY. Find something else you like to do! Personally, I love it! I think it’s just a really fun way to express myself. I write pretty much every morning in my journal so it just made sense for me to turn some of those thoughts into posts for my friends.

And there we have it - my 3 main reasons! I'm sure everyone has their own - but I feel like at the these 3 are why I look forward to writing every week. So grateful you came to read them!


Keep on keepin' on, friends!

Rachel
