Recently, I was having a deep think to myself. I was thinking about blogging in general and why it is so important to me. The first post I did got me so excited, with that I knew I would keep this up for a long time. It something that is genuinely a passion of mine, and something I cant imagine stopping. My life long passion is to become a beauty editor at a magazine in a big city. This is something I wish for most, and determine to work as hard as possible for. Some may say this is unrealistic but I am a strong believer in working for everything you deserve and want in life. I have loved everything that contributes to beauty journalism ever since I can remember. This may include photography, writing and trialling beauty products which I love. Photography has been something I have loved since I was a young child. Although I only have a few, Childhood photos make me feel so sentimental and the fact a device can do that fascinates me. I received my first camera at 8 and took it everywhere with me. On holidays, sleepovers and even to the shopping centre to capture moments. It has just always been interesting to me and I wish to take this somewhere in life. Writing is the same. Maybe not so much as photography but writing blog posts genuinely makes me so excited. The fact that people actually care and take time to read what I have written makes me feel so special.
Im a very fickle person. I was always the child that changes their favourite colour, animal, football team and dream job, but blogging for me seems to stick. It is something that brings excitement to me, and when I don't post I must admit makes me a little disappointed. Recently, I have been in a bit of a blogging standstill. I feel like my content is a bit all over the place and I don't really have time between schoolwork and family to keep up with it all. This is something I tend to struggle with because If I don't find time for blogging, Nothing interests me. This is my hobby, not football, tennis or reading, Blogging. Thats why I have decided to set myself a goal. To note down my own original blogpost ideas and keep time aside for the thing I love most, reminding myself that Blogging is about what it means to you and not about tons of page views and sent products (not that these are bad) because those are something I believe you work hard for and are Perks in the blogging world. I would also like to take some time in this post to appreciate all the people who read my blog. New or old you make me so happy and make me feel like, Yes there are people who care and do read what I take time to do. If you are thinking about blogging, DO IT. It is the greatest decision ever, and something I will continue to do until I am wrinkly.
Sorry for the soppy a bit random, all over the place blogpost, but I thought I might contribute to the blogging world and maybe give someone something special to read. I know this is a little different but I hope you enjoyed listening to me vent a bit :).
