It’s Saturday morning and I am looking after my little sister, sat on the sofa in my pyjamas watching Monster High, which for those of you who don’t know is the latest kids craze! Beautiful dolls with a scary twist and names such as ‘Abbey Bominable’ and ‘Frankie Stein’, my sister is obsessed with them all! (If you’re really curious, take a look on Google).
Anyway…to the point of this post, it just hit me that I am SO lucky to be able to have a hobby which I could do literally anywhere.
Whether I am on the train, at the park, on the beach, on my lunch break, waiting in the doctor’s surgery, dare I say it, in the bath (haha – this comes at your own risk), I am able to pick up my phone, open the WordPress app and just blog away.
Not many people can say that with a touch of a few buttons, that they are able to socialise with their ‘hobby friends’, even fewer can say that they can interact with these friends around the clock too.
Blogging infiltrates into every day life for me and that’s partly why I love it so much, whether you have oodles of time to be able to dedicate to it one day and a few seconds for social media and interacting with fellow bloggers the next, it doesn’t matter, you’re a part of something HUGE.
It allows you the chance to be creative with your life and adds valuable and even envious attributes to your skill set. From time management and photography to communication and professionalism, you are constantly improving and enhancing yourself as a person.
Plus there is always a shoulder to cry on. I am so lucky to have a group of blogging girls that I can turn to day or night and know they will be there to comfort me or to get advice from, and I hope they know I am always here too.
– Just here right here I was able to put my phone down and make boiled eggs and soldiers (yes I am still 5 years old) but it just goes to show the amount of flexibility which comes with blogging. You don’t need to feel pressured with time contraints or deadlines.
But best of all I think, no matter who you are, your age, where you come from or what you are interested in, there is a space for everyone in this amazing and unique blogging community. You will always find someone to bond with, and better still, get to meet many of them in person in a safe and AMAZING environment at a blogging event targeted to bloggers with similar interests, and you’ll probably pinch yourself at how lucky you’ve struck or because you didn’t start putting pen to paper sooner.
So if you are reading this, and wondering whether or not to take the plunge to start, make sure you do it today! And I can quite honestly say that it might be one of the best things you have done in a long, long time.
