Why I Think Blogging Is The Perfect Hobby

Hey guys!
So as I have got back into blogging I can really say it has become hobby of mine again. Some people use it for their income, and one day I would love that to happen. But for now it's something I enjoy and these are some reasons why.

1. You Make Friends Through it 
Yes, you can actually make friends just like any other "normal" hobby. I find the blogging community so friendly - I don't think I've ever received a nasty comment. Everyone seems to be supportive in their comments and tweets. There are always meet up's happening as well, one day I'll like to go to one. I'm thinking of going to one next year.

2. You Can Always Learn New Things
I have learnt so much whether it's HTML or reading a blog post review on a product. The blogging world is an information tool. You can either learn from other bloggers or learn stuff yourself from producing your own content.

3. It's Easy To Get Started
When I say it's easy, I mean it's easy to make a blog. You can log into blogger anytime you want and create your very own blog. It's not difficult to access and it's FREE. The added extra's like a domain name aren't a must and can come later.

4. You Can Do Whatever You Want
You can write what you want, when you want. If you want to write about makeup you can, or if you want to write a book review.. guess what .. you can. The world of blogging is another way to show another side to you.

5. You Can Get Things Off Your Chest
Not all bloggers do lifestyle posts, but if you do... how amazing does it feel to write about something that's on your mind? I do sometimes find it therapeutic to write about things especially anxiety. This is a great way to deal with issues for some people.

6. New Opportunities 
I have been approached by a few companies because of my blog. Whether it's to review a product of theirs or to share their website on my social platforms. Yes sometimes it's annoying, but sometimes some amazing opportunities come out of blogging.

7. You Can Inspire Others
Do you ever read a blog post and it changes your thoughts for the day? Sometimes I find reading other peoples blog posts inspire me. I love to inspire people myself and feel I can do that through my blog.

So yea these are some reasons I love to blog. Do you guys agree?

Love Laura xx

  3. So many great points! I completely agree about how it's a great way to make friends! And I've learned so much from it!


  4. Some great reasons here, reminds me why I started in the first place:') It's the perfect place to learn new things you wouldn't have even considered otherwise.

  5. I totally agree with this, I love blogging too and when I started a year ago, I didn't think I would love this process so much!


    1. congrats on your year... Yea just gotta keep going x

  6. I can relate to all of these points - I love having my own little space to write what I like, plus I've met some lovely people and I would definitely class them as real life friends!


    1. Aw that's great you've met some true friends xx

  7. So true!!

  8. Yes you can really make friends through blogging and it's been an amazing experience for me so far. I've talked about it in a previous post (you can read it here if you want) and I've come to realize through the comments that a lot of bloggers have made real life connections thanks to their cyber diaries.

    1. Yea defo! One day I'll go to a blogger meet up x

  9. Blogging is one of the few hobbies I have stuck with for the past 27 years I've lived on Earth, lol! I've always loved writing. My dad accidentally stumbled upon my diary when I was 9 and was fascinated with my deep thoughts, lol. Then I always had blogs in high school (Xanga) but it was mostly about stupid teenage stuff like boyfriend or friend drama. I eventually join the school newspaper my senior year and almost majored in Journalism! And I met my fiancé at the newspaper in our college. So even if I have a degree in Graphic Design, writing has always been my first love. And blogging is a safe place to write your thoughts, especially from family and friends (who may be more judgmental than people on the internet).


    1. totally agree, blogging does sometimes feel safer (which is weird because it's more public). I chose to eventually show my friends/family my blog last year but sometimes I worry what to write now. xx

  10. I couldn't agree more with all your points here! It took me two years of blogging to finally make my first pay cheque, it's not much but it was an accomplishment. Did I ever thought of taking blogging full time and as a career? Not at all, I think it's just suck the fun out of it.

    1. Yea true, I would love blogging as a job but it defo can take the fun out of it xx

  11. Couldn't agree more with you! Such a great post, to me it has also meant learning how to write in another language, I believe my English has improved a lot throughout my blog posts and this is something I particularly love about blogging!


  12. I completely agree. I love how we can all share our thoughts and tips and create this amazing community. Great post!

  14. I agree, blogging offers some great opportunities and really makes your life richer and more colorful. More stressful either from time to time, but I wouldn't want to miss it as well.
