'Why do you blog, like, when do you find the time?'

Thats what I find myself constantly being asked this week, its like everyone is confused. And to be honest it is damn hard to find the time, between school and work fitting in photo shoots can be a pain, loads of lunch times spent running around to snap a couple of pictures. Plus those deadline weeks are killer and sometimes the blog has to be neglected a little so I can get through. Honestly though these aren't really 'bad' things and if they were that bad I just wouldn't do them, right? There's so many good things about blogging that out way the annoying ones, there's so many reasons why I do this.

Opening Doors And Opportunities
Blogging is all about working with brads, getting free stuff and going to events, especially if you're a small time blog but it is an amazing perk when it does happen. Even in the short time I've been blogging I've been so lucky to have some really exciting opportunities offered to me, granted you can't do everything but being asked just feels amazing. Fashion Dew's already opened a ton of doors for me to work with people and I'm so excited too watch it grow!

Meeting Amazing People
Specifically fellow bloggers and people that I look up too, I've met some amazing girls through blogging, networking and supporting each others blogs. Being someone who's pretty awkward in social situations being able to meet and talk to a bunch of amazing girls who I already have a ton in common with is so refreshing. 

Building Confidence
This is probably the most important thing for me, this is arguably why I blog and why I started to blog in the first place. Its so beneficial in building confidence, maybe its superficial but every time you guys comment or visit the blog it helps boost my confidence. It's help me so much that I'm at a point where I feel a lot more comfortable and confident talking to people, meeting people and generally doing things compared to where i was this time last year.

Being A Part Of Something
I've already covered this a little bit but generally being a part of a bigger community of people, an ever growing community is amazing. We all already have something in common, a group of people we can belong to and its generally a really cool thing to be a part of because bloggers, well, we're pretty cool people to know.

Creative Outlet
Probably a little cliche and cheesy but it is an outlet for me, okay, I haven't used it to my advantage yet but its such a good way to communicate your feelings, interests etc and connect with each other on a little more personal level when it comes to the hard issues. There's a handful of posts coming soon on Fashion Dew that really do feel like an outlet because it's important to talk about the tough things, to share stories and understand things from each other experiences and points of view.

I Love Blogging
Ultimately this is the most important factor and it's what I say to everyone who asks that question, I mean why do something you don't enjoy?  

Why do you guys blog, what are your highlights?

  4. This post drew my attention, because it is very interesting to get to know why other people blog. I must say I agree with most of it. It is just very funny, even a kind of addiction :).

    You look very cute in this post, I especially like the posts in which you look right into the camera. And as you might read, I am a hat lover myself, so I like this style of yours very much.

    Success!!!
