Will I make a good blogger? | BLOGMAS 2017 DAY 13

Taking part in Blogmas this year has helped me get my love of writing back. I used to blog regularly a few years ago but I used it as more of a diary than something to share publicly. I've been thinking over the last couple of weeks if I would make a good blogger... 

Being a new blogger it is difficult not to compare myself to those who have been doing it a lot longer than I have. I feel my writing isn't as witty or well put together as others. I don't have perfectly polished pictures with marble and rose gold accents. I don't particularly know what 'type' of blogger I am. Fitness? Lifestyle? Mental health? Beauty? Reviews? It often seems that everyone knows what they're doing and I'm struggling to find my place!

But then I got thinking.. what does it mean to be a blogger? It's about you writing about topics, products and other things that you're interested in and passionate about! There is no special recipe or one way to be a blogger, it's all about you as a person! That's the fun of blogging, you get to decide what you write and talk about. It's a way to be creative and express yourself. It's not like homework where everyone is set the same task, we all have different interests and opinions which is what makes it more interesting. You're reading about a variety of different things from people of all walks of life!

So, will I make a good blogger? Yes, I will. Because I will always create content that I enjoy making. I will write about things I love and if that's not to some people's taste, then that's fine! If one person reads it or one thousand people do, it doesn't matter!  I can't expect myself to write about hair & make up all the time when that's not my favourite thing! 

That's what we have to remember! While it may be hard work to get your blog up and running, that's what will help you and give you the drive to continue to create what you love! When you work hard on something and genuinely enjoy it, you won't want to stop! 

I'm going into next year positive, ready to keep updating my blog and  I will be sticking to a regular weekly posting schedule! 

What are some of your goals for 2018? Do you agree or disagree with the points I've made today? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter here

I hope you enjoyed reading! Just a few thoughts I've been having the last few days. :)
