Reasons Why I Started My Blog

You’re probably wondering why I chose this picture. Well this is the place where my blogging journey began two years ago. I was sitting in my boyfriends place and felt a blog would be a great way for me to be creative. A new outlet for me to try out. I also thought it’d be a good idea to build a website for my portfolio. So today, I wanted to share with you why I decided to blog.


I’ve always been a creative person. I enjoy making and trying out new things. I want people to see what I make and feel inspired by it. I guess I dream that some day, my bullet journal pages will be popular on Pinterest or Tumblr. A little bit a jealousy from others wouldn’t be bad either 😉


Putting myself out there is a little scary. But I want people to see who I am and feel accepted. I’ve always struggled with criticism and liking my own work. So I guess I enjoy getting a little attention from others and feeling good about myself. My readers make me feel proud so thank you!


At first, I started my blog because I wanted it to be like my personal portfolio. I was majoring in graphic design at Iowa State University so I figured a blog would be perfect. I also wanted to write about myself. Kind of like an online diary. I don’t like my handwriting so typing seemed better.


Taking criticism can be tough. I’ve always struggled with it as well as taking compliments. But, I want to break that. I want to be able to push myself out of my comfort zone and take it. Failure doesn’t mean it’s over. It just means you need a little tweaking. Or maybe you don’t! Everyone has a different opinion on everything so don’t things personally.


I feel like having a blog will help me figure out who I want to be and what I want it life. I’ve never been sure about anything. Always changing my mind. I think that opening up to the world will give me a better perspective on my life and help me grow as a person.

Well, there you have it! This is why I started my blog! Please comment below some reasons why you started blogging!Screen Shot 2017-07-16 at 11.34.27 PM

  1. All of these sound exactly the same to mine. I always wanted to be inspiration to others or at lest help people to find a place where everything is nice and pretty as a run away place. I love your blog, keep up the good work girl. xx

  2. These are all great reasons for starting a blog! It’s nice to have a place that’s all your own, it’s like your own little corner of the world! I started blogging because I wanted a creative outlet to talk about things I was interested in and passionate about. I love YouTube (and watch it constantly) but I think I’m too much of a spaz to be in front of a camera…lol. So a blog seemed like the best place for me!

  3. My reason isn’t very deep or profound or anything but I started blogging because I was bored, that is the honest truth. And then that I ended up login it and it really is such a cool thing-the idea that you can inspire people❤

  4. Love the reasons you have listed down.
    I started my blog about a year ago and two posts later I decided to drop the idea and just left it. Picked it up again about 2-3 months ago and just 20+ something followers away from reaching 100! It is such a great feeling knowing people appreciate your hard work.

    I honestly started writing only because i love make up and skin care so much. I’m no make up artist from anywhere and i dont even know how to do eye liner properly haha but i love sharing what I know!

    Someone messaged me on my instagram the other day and the conversation started off with being oh hey nice blog etc etc and then went into so how do you think you’ll make money out of this and honestly that was the first time it i realised i never thought of the monetary aspect, i just want to share my knowledge (Whatever little that i have) with whoever i can! And one of the funnest aspects of blogging is connecting with people like yourself. Its so much fun talking to people from all around the world!

    I’m focusing on developing more and more better content and hoping i can keep expanding and sharing my knowledge with whoever i can in however way i can!

    Love what you are doing and best of luck for everything and anything that comes your way ❤



  5. I started blogging because I wanted to share my thoughts. I never dreamed eventually people would start responding back to my posts. I struggle with confidence too, and it certainly helps when people are encouraging.

    Thank you for always sharing your heart 🙂
