Why I Still Blog 10 Years Later

Why I Still Blog 10 Years Later

I've been blogging for around ten years. My blogging life is the age of a 4th grader. I haven't achieve wide success for my blogging and I definitely can't quit my day job because of it, but I haven't stopped after all these years.

There are a ton of reasons why I haven't given blogging up as a hobby after all this time. Blogging has done a lot for me over the years. It's helped with my anxiety. It's improved my photography skills so much that I've started getting freelance product photography gigs. It's helped me get "real" jobs before I started my own business. 

I've also continued to blog for so long because this is a type of hobby that changes and adapts with the author. My blog has come miles since I first started it and I've abandoned quite a few other blogs along the way for platforms that suit my style better. You get what you give to blogging, which I love. The more energy you put into it the greater self-accomplishment you'll feel.

The main reason though, above everything else, is that it makes me better. It pushes me to create a better post than the last, take a better photo, and encourages me to try new directions in content. It's always there waiting for me, like a loving pet, to type up another beauty post or gab about new planner supplies. It's been my friend when I've felt alone. It's brought me out of my shell and has given me a voice.

So yeah, I'm a big fan of blogging. I'm certain that the blog as it is today won't always be around, but that's ok. My life will change as my family expands and my interest goes into different directions. But it's nice to know that this friend will be with me through it all. And I hope you will too.
