What Blogging Means To Me | October Guest Post Month

Thank you, blogging.

Writing has always been a huge part of my life, even as a small child. I always seemed to write things down instead of saying them due to me being quite shy; although it wasn’t until around a year ago that I discovered blogging.

I read a few posts here and there for a few months, never really thinking much of it. Then, suddenly the thought kind of just sprang to mind. That maybe, just maybe, I might be able to do it.

The thought of being able to write what I want to write, about whatever or whoever. The thought of having a space/platform that was mine to express my feelings, thoughts and opinions on anything, and everything. It made me smile. It gave me a feeling of freedom, and something I could potentially fall in love with. I have completely fallen in love with blogging. There is no doubt about that. So thank you, blogging.

Blogging has completely changed my life in so many incredible ways. It has got me through so many high and low points throughout my time of having it, whether it was there just as a distraction from difficult things going on in my life, or somewhere for me to pour my heart out. Either way, it always seems to be there for me. It gives me an escape and a little boost of happiness now and again. Thank you, blogging.
Not only has blogging given me such an amazing platform and my own little corner of the internet, I have made the most incredible life long friends. Being quite an anxious, shy & socially awkward person for pretty much my entire life, it makes it so difficult to make friends and find people who I feel I fit in with and who I have common interests with in real life. However, blogging has given me so much confidence and it's actually helped me to find people who I am so similar to and I actually have the same interests as, which is something I never thought I would have, as my confidence is the bane of my life. Thank you, blogging.

One final thing - passion. I have had so many hobbies in my life, and after a few months, or years, I tend to lose passion or interest for it. Don’t get me wrong, there was a point during blogging where I was just posting for the sake of it, and my heart wasn’t truly in each and every post that I wrote. However, ever since I have started producing content that I love writing, all I want to do is write 24/7! I have such a genuine, strong passion for blogging, and I hope this heart-warming feeling that I feel towards my blog never goes away because, honestly, I have never done such a hobby that makes me so happy and content.
So, thank you blogging for giving me an escape when times were tough, giving me the freedom to write whatever I wish, giving me the chance to make such incredible friends who (fingers crossed!) I will hopefully meet someday, and finally giving me a hobby again, giving me happiness and something I am passionate about and want to work hard at.
Thank you blogging. You have completely changed my life, and I couldn’t be happier about that.
