Today is day 7 of the blogtober challenge, and todays topic is ‘What Made You Start Blogging?
Those that are regular readers to my blog, would have seen me speak about this before. For those who are new to reading my blog, here is why I started blogging.
Why I started my blog
I used to read blogs and enjoy them, and was at a stage in my life where I wanted to do something new. It was time for me to have a new challenge. I remember the day well, I was sitting in our studio and thought I am going to try to write a blog. So I thought of my name, StressedMum, which was very apt that day. I originally started a free WordPress account and set myself up. I then announced proud of myself to my husband that I had started a blog. He realised how serious I was, and eventually set me up a proper account through his hosting and off I went.
I had no idea if anyone would read my little blog. To me it was my baby, something I could look back on and remember those memories or times. I wanted to write personal posts, things from the heart and along the way I have shared my emotions and joys, my ups and my downs, the funny and the sad times in our lives.
My blog is now just over a year old, and I love it. I have found many more blogs covering a variety of topics that I enjoy reading. Also I have made some great new friends, and it is the best thing that ever happened to me. It is my personal space, which I domain and no one can get in the way.
Are you a blogger? Why did you start blogging? or are you someone who just loves reading blogs (as I did/still do)
