#socialbloggers 16 – Why start a blog?

Wow, #socialbloggers 16 happened and it was a busy one! There were loads new people jumping in the conversation!

We were talking about reasons for blogging, if they’ve changed and how people have grown since starting blogging. 

It was so lovely to hear that blogging has built up a lot of peoples confidence due to the blogging community being so accepting. I’ve heard whispers about something that happened on a forum lately that wasn’t nice, but I don’t really know much about it and don’t really care to. I really want blogging to be a positive experience for me and it has been so far. 

I surround myself with positive bloggers and love how accepting everyone has been.

What about my answers? Well, I started blogging because my friend did and I was intrigued. I’ve had blogs in the past, but nothing like this and I really loved the community. It has turned into something so much more. It’s so addictive and it just makes sense to me. I’ve ALWAYS been very present on the internet. YouTube, forums and websites.. I feel like this is such a better use of my time as I’m actually creating something, rather than just wasting my time. I’ve learnt so much since the start of blogging, I really enjoy the technical side too, which is why I started this chat as well as writing tips about blogging. 

Blogging is probably the healthiest obsession and addition I’ve had.

Okay, on to the chat!
