I’ve talked numerous times in the past about how I’ve blogged in many different places, under many different names, but how every time I delete what I’ve been creating, I miss it and make a ‘return’.
I don’t regret all the times I’ve started and stopped and started again, it’s made part of my journey so special. However, I am aware that every time I come back it’s for the same reason, time after time again.
IT’S A PLACE TO TRULY CALL MY OWN
No one else posts, no one else takes the pictures, no one else creates the words. When it comes to blogging, I have complete and utter autonomy over the content I produce and the words that I write.
The thing is, blogging is always in the back of my mind. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing or how I’m feeling, I always think about blogging, the creators I’ve always enjoyed following and the feeling I get whenever I’ve written and feel like a load has been lifted. I don’t care if I don’t have a big following or nobody likes the content I’ve created, the feeling I get from it is so unique from any other that I’ve felt that it’s 100% worth it. The feeling of finally feeling completely free.
I KNOW IT MADE MY LITERARY SKILLS BETTER
When I was a kid, I was a little bit dim. I didn’t always understand how to count and I certainly didn’t know what words should go where or how to use a comma properly. Even in my early twenties I really struggled. However, over the past couple of years, people have started to comment on my grammar skills or my ability to write in such a well structured way. What was the cause of that? 100% blogging.
By spending hours reading other posts, book recommendations or just practising writing meant that my ability at the writing skill got better and better.
I’M IN COMPLETE CONTROL
As I said above, blogging is a place I can call completely my own because I’m creating my own content completely independently. I’ve also created a look that is completely unique to what I want, not some big company. It’s probably the only thing in my life that I have complete control over and that’s a pretty special thing to have.
I DIDN’T FEEL ALONE ANYMORE
Back in the day, when I first started blogging, I was in a very difficult place and I didn’t have the words or knowledge to describe how I was feeling. But by reading other people’s experiences and feelings it made me finally realise that I wasn’t alone. Yes, no one would ever feel the exact feelings I felt or would go through the exact experiences, but just knowing that not everyone felt happy go Larry in their head made the world of difference.
