What made me start blogging?

So it has recently occurred to me that I started my blog back in July 2016. Which is insane to think about. And it had got me thinking about writing a post to talk about the reasons why I started blogging and what I wanted to get out of it. 

Right, so firstly taking it right back to the beginning and I was very into watching YouTubers such as Zoella, Pointless Blog and Gabriella. I could see that these guys had made such a positive impact whether it be in relating to mental health, career aspirations and general motivation and positivity. I was really keen on the idea of being able to do a similar thing and just spread positvity. Another thing I noticed was the relationships and communities that Youtubers and bloggers had created and as someone with not many friends I was keen for a way to interact with more people. I find it easier to do this through social media as I am such a shy quiet person, and this is easier for me.

The second reason I started a blog was so that I had something to do over the summer after the end of my first term at uni. None of my uni friends lived anywhere near me so I couldn't spend time with them much. Which meant I was home all day pretty much everyday and going a little insane. So I needed something to keep myself occupied. 

Initially I didn't expect much from it but I've reach 100 followers on my blog, 500 on twitter and 290 on Instagram. So I'm definitely gonna keep giving this a go as I am quite enjoying it. I am also quite keen to see what opportunities this may bring in the future.
