PERSONAL | What I Love About Blogging

love bloggingWhen exactly it was, I don’t remember. But at some point I started blogging. It’s something I’ve been doing for almost 5 years now, and I still love it. I love it for many reasons. Also for a lot of reasons that I can’t really put to words. Yes, I’m a blogger who sometimes doesn’t know how to put things to words. But I’m going to give it a go.

– Opportunties I’ve had
Blogging also created opportunities for me. I’ve collaborated with inspiring brands, went to cool and interesting events and I’ve been featured in magazines and on websites as well. Things I never thought would happen when I started blogging. I’m very thankful for all the opportunities I’ve had and because of them I also learned a lot.

– Being creative
I think we all agree blogging is something creative. You need to come up with ideas for posts, take photographs, write the texts. Nowadays it’s hard to stand out since there are so many bloggers on the planet. But still, I try my best and I try to be me. I love the creative part about blogging. Taking pictures is something I love and I want to do it more often. And also writing. Here on Radiate Fashion, I write what I want, and how I want of course since it’s my website. But on my other travel blog, the articles I write are different and more formal and informative. I like to try out different writing styles and improve myself.

– The friendships
Over the past 5 years I’ve met so many amazing people with the same interests. Fashion, photography, writing, creating videos and more. I’m lucky to call some of the many people that I’ve met my friends. They inspire me and motivate me. They’re fun to hang out with and talk to and it’s cool to create content together as well.

– Blogging made me realize what I like (a lot)
Although I still don’t know what I want to do in the future (but hey, we live in the now right?), blogging did make me realize what I like to do. I like writing, traveling, and fashion. I love photography and I must say I also like the business side of blogging. Before I started this blog, I didn’t know I liked all these things, at least I didn’t know I liked these thing so so much. This February I’m even going to follow a photography course. So excited. I’m sure that at some point I will find out what I want to do later, but for now I’ll just try to figure it out by doing what I love at the moment. And not worrying t0o much about later.

I’ve been blogging for almost 5 years now. Quite a long time I must say. But I love doing it, and will continue doing it as long as I still love it.

What do you love about blogging?

    I like blogging because I get to learn so many things from others.Reading other peoples blogs you can pick up what to do and what not to do. I also can get ideas from others too. I also love sharing my help on mind and body balance.

    Beautiful post! I’ve always wanted to it for so many many years and was afraid to do it because I was afraid of what people would think about me doing it. I thank my husband for pushing me 14 mths ago. I am so in love with it and wish I could give every hour of my day to it (I work full time).You’ve done an amazing job for five years and wish you many many years and so much success.

    I love very much blogging too!
    I did things that before I dream about and I made important friendships thanks to my blog!
    Maybe the most important time that came from my blog is to believe in my self, because the blog is all thanks to me!

    That’s a beautiful post! I can say I fully agree with you. Also, I’d add that blogging make me be the person I want to be, there are no limits for being creative and, in some way – living the dream! Thanks for sharing that story <3
