***This post is for the bloggers community, but to my other regular readers, I’ll be back very very soon with some juicy posts for you. Thank you for being so patient!***
I’ve recently noticed that some of us are losing track of why we started blogging in the first place. It becomes about how to get more views, how to get more likes and comments, how to monetise your blog etc etc etc. So in the spirit of this, I’d like to ask you all – why did you start blogging?
I’ll start. I started because women’s rights is something I feel so strongly about, but honestly don’t have to time/money to go out and actively campaign in public, I also strongly believe that we live in a digital world, so a blog was the perfect solution. Hopefully I can influence people, and if I’ve changed just one persons view since starting, then I’ve succeeded.
I also started blogging as at the time I was struggling a little bit. I try not to mention too much on my blog as it’s very public, and the things I am struggling with also affect my family, my younger siblings. Writing helps me clear my head. And I truly hope one day, when my family have battled through it, when my siblings are old enough, I can stand up and be a voice for others who have been through similar pasts. One day, I will write that post.
