Just To Say: I'm Really Loving Blogging!

When I thought I would try the whole blogging scene again, I never would think I would love it so much.


There are many people that unfortunately blog "for the sake of it" just to get followers, and make money, but I genuinely think I have finally found A HOBBY!
When filling out application forms for jobs etc, there has always been that dreaded question that always popped up " hobbies and interests?"  I always had put down  something like shopping or reading. A bit lame really?

But because my blog is MINE and I can put whatever content I want with delight, it gives me something to take charge of on a weekly/daily basis!
So yea, I thought I would put it out there that I am blogging because I enjoy it, and hope my content can improve!

I also enjoy sharing aspects of my life, and find it really therapeutic to talk about some of my problems, or even to give advice to others. [Inserting a random photo from my phone]

Other then liking the writing aspects of being a blogger, I actually am impressed with the blogging community. You do get the odd hater, or people that only want to use you to follow their blog, but other than that everyone is so friendly and supportive.

I have some quick questions for any of you reading/commenting on this post:

1. What makes you want to follow A blog?
2. How often do you update your blog?
3. What type posts do you prefer to read? eg. Beauty/Fashion/Chatty/Life updates


Thanks guys<3 br="" nbsp=""> Love Laura xxx


Also I want to add (for respect) because I'm posting on "9/11", I just want to say that 12 years on, the people that suffered will never be forgotten.  x

  3. I feel the same way! I love the fact that I now have a hobby! When I first started blogging I had no idea I'd love it as much.

    This post is really lovely :)

    Answering your questions, I think I follow a blog if the design is clear and simple, the photos are a decent quality, and the writing is interesting to read. Sounds like a lot, I'm not as fussy as that made me seem haha!
    I update my blog 2/3 times a week, and really enjoy beauty/chatty posts :)

  4. I feel exactly the same :) such a nice post to read today!

    1) I follow if I see personality and good photos (the latter of which I REALLY need to improve)
    2) Once or twice a week - I want something interesting to talk about, so I don't want to overwhelm.
    3) I love reading lifestyles with a few beauty bit thrown in, especially if they're chatty.

    Hmm maybe...

  5. Blogging is great, it's nice to be part of a community as well as doing something you enjoy. I like to follow people who have similar interests to mine or who make me laugh. I like to see a blog post once or twice a week (although I'm lazy and put mine up much less than that). My favourite blog posts are usually lifestyle ones :)

  6. I am so glad that blogging has become such a great hobby for you! I started my blog on a whim years ago and it has become such a hugely important part of my life. It's something I am truly passionate about for many of the same reasons you are passionate about your blog.

  7. I always find blogs that have a clean layout a not a lot of jumble more appealing. I update everyday, because I upload a picture everyday. And my preference is obviously photography, but I love beauty and life ones!

  9. I usually follow a blog if I feel at home when I click on it. I love something that looks welcoming and colorful, plus they need to have interesting content. I try to update my blog 4 times a week, but lately it' only been three because I'm back at college and have almost no time. I love really any time of post. Something with exciting pictures or titles makes me click on it, but I rarely discriminate based on topic.

  10. This is such a good post, it's so nice to see something really positive about blogging!

    My answers to your questions are:
    1. I follow blogs if I like their content. I can tell I really like a blog, when I don't even need them to post something I just go typing their url into the search bar to see what they've posted. I generally follow fashion blogs, but since I've started blogging about beauty I've gotten an interest in that too. I follow a few random photography and journalistic type blogs too.

    2. Well since I've been blogging I've gone through stages of 3-4 a month, to more than once a day. Now I'm at a steady pace and I blog a few times a week.

    3. I go for fashion, beauty, D.I.Y and crafts, body mod, music, film, if it posts about something I'm interested in then I'll follow it. I think a good blog should inspire, so you should look at an outfit and think "Oh that's so well put together, I never thought of wearing that with that." that sort of thing!

    Sorry for the long comment haha, I have such a habit of ranting!
