I saw this post on Jessica's blog from the amazing The Pyreflies and I thought I'd do a post dedicated on my love for blogging too! Me and Leah both created Beyond The Velvet in August last year and to be honest I didn't think we'd keep up with it. I first started blogging in 2013 and I gave up with it pretty fast and I don't know why as I was kind of obsessed with it. Then in the summer of 2014, we were pretty bored and decided to make Beyond The Velvet. At first, we wanted this blog to be a fashion only blog as a beauty blog felt like a lot of work but now we blog about beauty, fashion and we try and add lifestyle posts in too. After six months of blogging, I can finally write down the reasons of why I love blogging so much!
Reasons we love blogging:
It's an excuse to buy more makeup and clothes: Even when I have no money, I always use this one as an excuse.
It's fun!: I always love coming up with new post ideas and taking pictures. It's always great commenting on other peoples blogs too and seeing what other people are up too!
It's a great way to spend our free time.
There are a lot of kind bloggers: When we created this blog we didn't think anyone would read it. Seeing that people are reading and commenting on our posts means the world and everyone is so kind. Thank you so much for supporting our little blog!
It's great to look back on: It will be great to look back on past posts and see what we were doing when we were 17 years old.
It's a great way to write down our thoughts and feelings.
We want to visit more places: We suffer with social anxiety and blogging is helping is slowly overcome this. Looking at new places that we can visit and blog about is exciting!
We discover a lot of new brands to try out!
It's made me appreciate the small things in life: I love taking pictures of everything now even when I just go for a walk in the park!
Blogging is helping our confidence.
There are many more reasons on why I love blogging but these are probably the top ten reasons on why we love blogging.
Why do you love blogging?
