What do you enjoy most about blogging? Is it the freedom to say what you want online? Being able to share your own personal stories or work? What is it about blogging that keeps you coming back? I have always wondered what motives people have behind wanting to blog. For me, it was something to do during the height of the pandemic. I needed a focus and something to fill my time. I wasn’t going out anywhere, or seeing friends or family. So being able to connect and create a space on the internet was something I really enjoyed about starting my blog.
I really enjoy hearing peoples why. Why they choose to do something, why they choose to not do something. It’s always interesting to hear how different we all are.
About 6 months ago, every Saturday I would have a topic discussion day. I called it open discussion Saturdays. And when my content schedule changed, I didn’t schedule for it to come back. I really enjoyed hearing from you all about your lives, and what makes you happy. And this is exactly why you are seeing this post today. I want to hear from you. Why do you blog, and what do you enjoy the most about it?
One of the most enjoyable things about blogging for me are the connections it’s allowed me to create. I have friends all over the world and I would never have had the opportunity without becoming a blogger. Not only are they friends for life, but they are such a great help when it comes to blogging.
Having a great community of fellow bloggers really has changed my blogging journey. Regularly, I have gone to my blogging friends for so many things during my time as a blogger. I ask for help and advice and I am welcomed with the most amazing and genuine responses. I feel like I am on the biggest, best team ever. And really we are like a big team. One that is always uplifting one another, and supporting each other through alot of different things.

THE CREATIVE FREEDOM
I have always been a creative person but not in a traditional sense. I have always loved creating things digitally. When I started a blogger I fell in love with content creation even more. Having the freedom to create and schedule my own content was such a game changer for me. One thing I really loved was designing and creating my own logo, and setting my own blog theme. I would never have had the opportunity to do this without my blog. I would never have known that I love creating like I do, without my blog.
Starting my blog has also sparked a fire inside me for drawing. Only recently in the last year, I started creating Digital illustrations and I love it so much. Being able to draw and post it online is so fun to me. And acts as a great distraction from the things of this world when I need it.

I couldn’t mention what I enjoy most about blogging and not mention the extra income that comes with it. If you are able to make money from blogging, consider yourself blessed. It has taken me just over a year to make a steady amount of money from my website. And of course, it’s one of the best things about turning my passion into a small business.
One of the main ways I have been doing this is working with a Influencer marketing company. Which is perfect for bloggers. Use my link below to sign up and start making money! There are tonnes of brands you can work with. From free products to being paid to write posts.

the chance to practice my writing and connect with people around the world.
Thats one of my favourite things too!
The feeling of to be able to share what’s on my mind with others
I find its sometimes easier to do this online than in person too!
Blogging helps me to know what I like about myself personally. I never actually knew who I was, but blogging has made me a deep thinker.
Great post olivia!

I originally started blogging to share my message about green living. I learned I have a passion for writing and it has led me to improve my skills in this area. My biggest surprise was the blogging community. I had no idea!
I love this! Your passion has turned into something bigger🤗
I love being able to share my thoughts on certain topics and also get feedback from people. I also love being able to write about whatever I like and see people that enjoy what I like too! Also the blogging community is amazing!
The blogging community is my favourite thing!
I love that I’m able to write something and share the photos I take. Also blogging community made me meet new friends!

The community of support! It is not something I expected, but I love it and keep blogging for it.
This community is everything!
I blog because I want to share what I’m learning and also because writing is a fun creative outlet. I’m new to this and still building a community, but I’m looking forward to that aspect of it too!
I started my blog to write about mental health issues and problems I have faced. Already I have found it has improved my writing so much but also have found a few bloggers who I interact with regularly I only hope this grows further!
You will look back at some of your first posts in a years time, and wont believe the improvement you have made!
Great post Olivia. It’s always fascinating to learn about the why behind a passion. For me blogging simply started as a hobby and a way for me to get back into writing. But now it’s about finding a community of people I can relate to, meeting people and learning from others stories. It’s a way for me to express myself or talk about a topic of interest or just about challenges I’m facing. This blogging community is so amazing. I’m so thankful for the suggestion from a co-worker to try it. It’s been an amazing journey so far.
Mine started as a hobby too! I think alot of ours did, and still is. All the stuff that comes with it, is extra!

Lovely post Olivia .
I started blogging to help me plan things out. To help me in time management, organizing home and make time for my drawing and painting.
Sharing my progress online motivates me to get things done.
Connecting with others bloggers is what I enjoy the most.

Yay! so glad you signed up. Let me know if you need help!

Like you -I have always liked creating content, more in the sense with writing. I have always liked writing & to be able to do with through blogging every other day —it has proven to be quite a hit x
Love this Shahrin💕
I enjoy the creative freedom of topics. I’m a writer and I have had a lot to learn and limited time and funds to do what I need. Through blogging I have read so many interesting things and I think I have improved as a writer. In fact I am currently working on improving my first novel through the things I have learned from others, just reading, diversifying my knowledge. I am hoping it will show when I re-release.
I love the sharing and love the different people I meet.
Oh wow, this is amazing! Good luck with that!

Blogging helped me to find my passion and I love to share anything and everything that helps to make a quality lifestyle. 😊
You are true writter Olivia
I enjoy how I can document my life through blogging while also inspiring others to become their best self and informing others of all the things I have learned throughout my life.
I also am never bored now because there is always something to do to and for the blog!
