My Blogging Tale

by - Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Here's a little story on how I started blogging and the reasons behind it.

It all started when I saw a friend of mine shared her blog link on one of her Facebook status. Then, from her blog, I found out about another blog owned by another friend. Honestly, at that time, I think that they're so cool for being a blogger. As a young teenage girl who obsessed over being the cool kid at school, I decided to make one for my own self.

Lemme tell ya something, I don't have a main reason or purpose on why I blog in fact I have quite several of 'em. Since the beginning of my blogging journey until now, here are my reasons:

First reason: I thought being a blogger is so damn cool. Remember back in the days when we all think that the more social media accounts you have, the cooler you would be? Yeah, I'm one of those people.

Second reason: After publishing my very first post, I suddenly felt the fun and pride of having a so-called article on the internet that was written by myself. That's when I started to blog just for the fun of it. I still remember what my second post was about - the characteristics of a great blog. HAHAHA.

Third reason: After quite some time, my followers kept on increasing. 10, 20, 30..... The number was small but I was still super happy about that mainly because I realized, I have a group of people who are willing to read all the craps that I wrote. My purpose changed yet again. From blogging 'for fun' to 'getting followers'.

Fourth reason: Then I met some amazing bloggers. They were so nice and funny. Meeting them made me feel like: "Alright, I don't need followers anymore, having them is enough." I stopped craving for followers and just blog to share my thoughts. Like they did.

Fifth reason: After I got into college, I was no longer active in the blogging world due to time restriction and lack of ideas. I once left my blog unattended for a year. One-freaking-year guys. Now that I have finished my diploma, I begin blogging again just for the sake of filling my way-too-ample time.

Current reason: This past weeks, I got inspired by several fellow bloggers and finally decided to take my blog seriously. I have passion in blogging now. Although I'm quite sure it won't lasts very long but I'm gonna try okay.

There we go fellas. You can clearly see how unmotivated and indecisive of a person I am. A couple of bloggers that I followed had moved to a self hosted website. Good for them tho. I never ever in my life as a blogger have thoughts on moving to Wordpress. Mainly because it involves me spending my money on a nonphysical thing in which I'm sure as hell my parents wouldn't approved it. Also, I'm quite certain that my passion in blogging would not lasts long enough considering that I will be a student again in a couple of weeks from now. Besides, I'm not a great writer, far from being creative and lack of motivation - which I believe, does not fit the characteristics of a good blogger.

Believe it or not, I don't really want anyone that knows me personally to know about my blog. Solely because I am embarrassed - not because of the blog but because of my shitty writing.

Anyway, that's my tale. What's yours? :)
