Pros and Cons of Blogging - Part 1

Good morning ^^

The more I do it, the more I realise just how much I do love blogging! I started in August and since then my eyes have been opened to another whole part of the internet through blogs. I never knew there were just so many, and Zoella and vloggers weren’t the only popular ones! I’ve even created my own little huddle of followers, and it makes me happy to know I’m sharing my stories/opinions with someone. Anyways, from what I’ve figured, here come the Pros and Cons of blogging. Always start with the positive.

You’ve start doing interesting things with your life. You realize that you want to do more interesting things that you don’t usually do so you have something worth blogging about. And even when you don’t manage to, you still think deeply about an idea or an opinion so that you have something to post. Having a blog makes me actually do things I would’ve postponed without it.

You learn so much, because you find the world of blogs! There are just so many out there, and with bloglovin’ I’ve found some pretty amazing blogs. There is just so much out there to acquire and learn… and I’ve discovered it through my own blog :D
You meet awesome and inspiring people. Just hear some of the stories people tell. They can be funny, sad, ambitious… so many different things to read.

You get organized. Blogging has made me get a lot more organized. I mean, I need to write a post by a certain day and get it up, and then find time to advertise advertise advertise on social media sites. And of course I like reading blogs so commenting and maybe adding my link? Takes time! I’ve learnt to schedule in time to blog in my daily routine, and I feel a lot more organized most times.
You’ve got an audience. The more followers and followers who actually read your blog, the bigger your audience. If you’re a writer this can be important, because if you publish your book, you already have a potential group of people who might want to try it out. This works the same with business releasing a product or what have you ^^

You can help others: If a commenter requests a post, you can help them out! Morally, emotionally or maybe just through reviewing products or films, you can help other people make decisions.
Express yourself: That’s the most important one to me. You get to express yourself and your feelings!

My next post is dedicated to the 2014 blogger challenge, but after that shall come the cons of blogging, in exactly a week!

  2. I agree with you on item 2, I've learned SO much from reading blogs! From beauty tips, recipies, fashion advice. You name it, there is a blog for it :) Looking forward to seeing what your 'cons' are!

    1. And I've also learned quite a bit for your blog itself :D Keep it up! And stay around for next week to see them. They'll be harder to make though ^^

  3. I'm very happy you're enjoying blogging! My blog has changed a heck of a lot since I started in 2011. I used to show more outfits but drawing has been a passion since being a kid and it's creeped it's way in haha.

    You're right it's great that you can meet others and see other great blogs that are not as hyped as the popular ones, often they are far more down to earth and relateable too which I always look for. Sometimes there is a lack of being real.

    It's so cool you draw anime/manga! My friend draws a lot of anime and I find it so interesting. I'm a big fan of Pokemon and used to sit and draw the anime for ages as a kid.

    1. Good blogs always develop ;) Drawing is cool, I look forwards to seeing it more in your other posts. Haha I should show you some manga sometime then :D

  4. Amazing post! I see it's quite popular amongst the bloggers. There were quite alot of positives, but I like how you took the time to explain each one in detail. Some positives go pretty deep, but that's good! No picky-mikky's here, (picky mistakes ) but it was a great blog.

    1. Thank you c: Hopefully these are some of the reasons you like to blog too!
