This post is for people who might come across my blog via search engines or social-media, and who want to know whether blogging is all it’s cracked up to be. I promise I won’t be biased in my response…

Blogging, for me, is stress relief. The stresses of life really affect us in more ways than we realise… That’s why it’s vital to have something we can do to release the tensions or frustrations – I do so through blogging. I’m not a frustrated person, but I do find that my levels of communication (albeit good) are nowhere as strong as my writing – where expression is concerned…

I may over-grammar (or sometimes not grammar at all), and I may not know how to spell the most basic of words sometimes, which results in me reposting something a billion times in an attempt to get it right. That’s only because I think fast and post faster, okay? 😆

Anyway, I use blogging as a means of expressing myself. I love to write. When I was young, I used to want to be like Tracy Beaker or her foster mum, Cam. I would write short stories and do little illustrations, posting them through the gap under the door for my mum to read in the morning. She was, and probably still is, my biggest fan. 😂

So, should you?

If you’re a fan of writing and could write for DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS, YEARS, DECADES, AND CENTURIES AS WELL AS THE AFTERLIFE… Do it. Get writing a blog. You honestly won’t regret it. You’ll meet like-minded people, grow a following and have your words read by many. You never know the effects you can have on someone through your writing. I get people from all over the World reading mine, if WordPress‘ stats are to be believed…

The main things you should consider when making a blog are: what are you passionate about? What can you write lots about? What type of people do you want to attract? Who’d you want to be reading it? What’s the style and tone-of-voice of your blog? How do you want to be perceived in your writing?

All of this matters, it shows off your personality to the virtual world. That, that right there is a sign that you’re doing it write. 😘💖
