I blog for me. I don't want fame or fortune and I don't strive to have a certain amount of hits each month. Why am I writing about this? I have been taking Holly Becker from Decor8's e-course Blogging your Way 2.0. A part of my homework is to write on why I blog and what I have learnt over the past weeks of doing the course.
I have taken Holly's course before and it was the best thing for my confidence in blogging. The course made me "Come out" to my family and friends. Since then I havnen't stopped talking about it. I drive my friend, family and work mates crazy. 2.0 has given me the added boost to look at the things that make me happy. To spend time doing the things I love. Don't get me wrong, I love my "Real Life" job but I also love designing and sharing the things I love. This is why I blog.
I first wanted to Blog after finding The Design Files, a visual feast of
all things design. Lucy inspired me to explore the webisphere for other
blogs. Where I found Decor 8, Design*Sponge and Desire to Inspire. The list goes on and on.
As a said I blog for me, it makes me happy. Blogging has opened a few doors for me over the past couple of months. This wouldn't have happened without the virtual push I got from Blogging Your Way! And for that I am truly grateful.
