Just For Fun – The Final Day
This is my last post in the Just For Fun blog challenge, where did the month go?! I didn’t quite manage to stick to posting a challenge every day but hey ho – nobody’s perfect! I’ve met some other great bloggers whilst doing this, and inspired others to take part in Just For Fun as well – I couldn’t have asked for a better ending to the challenge.
The final question is why do I blog? I first started blogging about 18 months ago, just to see what the attraction was. Loads of people I knew kept blogs and I enjoyed writing so thought I’d give it a go – curiosity was the main reason why I began This and That.
For a good six months I barely had any readers and hardly updated my blog because life was hectic – I was holding down a six day a week job, learning to drive, and dancing for 12 hours a week. At times I thought “why the hell did I start this blog? It’s just an inconvenience!”
Then my life changed completely when I started an apprenticeship at the Eden Project last September. I had been applying for horticulture traineeships and apprenticeships since I was sixteen and I had finally been accepted onto a course, at one of the most famous gardens in the UK!
I left home and started my new job, life was busier than ever but the difference was I had never been happier and I think that showed in my writing and the way I wrote posts for my blog. I was sharing my love of life and felt truly passionate about everything I wrote about – I still do!
This time last year I felt stuck in a rut, just waiting for someone to give me a chance and now I have achieved so many of my dreams and ambitions – I think I must annoy people with how happy I am!
For people to enjoy my posts and to come back to read my blog again and again makes blogging so worthwhile. It is self-satisfying and I get such a buzz from people liking what they read enough to start following me. I have been able to interact with other amazing writers who’s support and encouragement means more to me than anything.
The main reason I write is to inspire others, because I wouldn’t be where I am today without knowing as many inspirational people as I do. I thank every one of my bloggers and followers, I hope you continue to enjoy my blog for as long as I do! 🙂
