I hope you’re all good and have had a good day! I’m currently sitting here painting my nails for the first time in ages, an evening well spent in my opinion!
Today I thought I’d share with you why I started blogging!
I started blogging in October 2015, so have been blogging for a grand total of 5 months, and so far I’ve loved every minute of it. Before I finally set this up I had been considering starting a blog for over a year! But I kept coming up with reasons why I shouldn’t; it would be too much work, I was too young, I would run out of ideas and I had got it into my head that no one would wan to read what I was writing. I then moved my focus onto maybe starting an Instagram account instead, but I’m not great at photography and I think I’m better with words than pictures, so I was back to square one and completely put the idea off.
It wasn’t until months later when my friend and I joked that we should start a blog offering dating advice that I considered the whole blogging thing again, and after talking to a few people I decided to take the plunge and create The Pineapple Tart!
I wanted to start a blog for several reasons, I love doing my hair and makeup and wanted to share that, I’d also gotten quite into reading other people’s blogs and it made me think that I could probably do that, another thing is that I’d found myself getting into a bit of a rut with what to do with myself, I’ve never been one to have lots of hobbies and I’d found myself getting bored.
I was also starting to feel the pressure of A Levels and needed an escape, this offered the perfect solution because when I’m blogging it takes my mind completely off everything and turns out to be something I find quite relaxing. The fact I was talking about my favourite things made it an even better solution.
I mostly started the blog because I wanted to share what I love with other people and wanted to share what I was passionate about. The idea of becoming part of the blogging community and meeting other people who shared the same interests was something that I was really interested in, and I’ve loved that aspect of blogging so far.
Overall, the reason I started my blog is because I wanted to explore what I love further and see what can come of sharing it, I simply wanted to pursue my passion in a way that was my own and on my terms. The fact I’m able to share what I love and I have such a blast doing it my favourite thing about my blogging experience
So that’s an outline of why I started the blog, remember to leave any questions for the Q&A in the comments!
