How Did I Begin Blogging?

Hi everyone! I am in the mood to tell you a story of my past.

Years back, when I was around 13-14 years old, I had one random thought that maybe I should start a blog. Mainly because I spent so much time on the internet. I have read pieces after pieces of content and thinking maybe I could try to do the same thing - which happens to be writing/ creating content. 

Well, whaddya know, I got myself a blog! I know it happened so fast and I remember all that falling snow effects, rainbow links, and overly cute and pink blogs and Blogskin?? OH MY GOD, it was the shit back then.


Anyway, I think this is something worth mentioning. I know I said I started blogging mainly because I spent a gazillion portion of my time on the internet, right? Well, another half of it was me seeing a friend of mine posted boatloads of blog posts about her boyfriend. I honestly thought that was the 'shit' back then and there goes the thinking- "maybe I should do the same thing?"

And I started to do the same thing. I know. Homegirl is easily intrigued and influenced, so yeah. I started off pretty 'meh' and I mostly blogged about a day in my life, *cough* my not-so-exciting love life *cough* and that was basically it. The blog is like my virtual journal/ diary if you will. I have always loved writing back then during my school days guys, I write just about anything in my diary. And my diary has a quirky name. Haha! Good old days.

Fast forward to this day, I guess now I blog so that I could just simply write, share and exchange thoughts. And if I did retire from blogging one day, it's been my dream to tell my own kids that their mommy is a blogger. Apart from that, I love knowing awesome people in this world full of awesomeness. This is the space where I learned new things, where I made mistakes, where I knew a lot of cool bloggers etc.

What does blogging mean to me now?

Blogging has always been a hobby of mine. I know some people may think my hobby is an expensive hobby lol which it is. I sometimes buy makeup products so that I can form a review for you guys. But I never really mind if it really is one expensive hobby, I just want to write and share my thoughts. And I know deep inside it's not my time to shine yet. I don't trust myself to take blogging as a career just yet. But it would be great though to blog for a living.

After everything is said and done, can I just say that I am truly happy with my blog now? I have a blogging niche, I can reach up to 10k page views per month (though it does not much compare to other bloggers), I have known a bunch of lovely people that I never knew existed and the list can go on and on. I guess that's a wrap. I hope you enjoyed it. I want to write more often in the future and just be consistent despite my hectic college life because it is not just a blog :)

What is your blogging story? How did it all start?

  4. Hi lenne.

    i used to have 3 blogs with a different purpose and i have deleted 2 of em so tinggal 1. Writing is not my passion but i love to keep all the memories of my life on something yg senang utk i baca balik. Dulu, ada boyfriend pun harus ada blog because i want to show him how i feel about our relationship. LOL, jiwang namatey. Then we broke up, kena la delete blog sekali sebab tak nak ingat cerita lama.

    Bila makin dewasa, rasa makin relaks. Blogging just for fun and sharing thoughts.
    That's all.

    You take care . =)
    xoxo

  14. so i baru start blogging since hbis f5,,bosn sgt,tu trfikir nk buat blog,tp x bebrapa mahir lg,newbie😂

  15. I totally get you. Uni life can so hectic and fills with dateline. What got me into blogging is the idea of sharing and expressing. People use blog to express themselves...whether it is a love story, life update, List of things they want to achieve, or things they love, beauty tips, shopping haul, and so on. It is a platform where people open up and express themselves giving glimpse of their true-selves and i love blogs that i'm able to see their personality being put.
