I’ve been blogging for close to 4 years now, which still amazes me every single day. During my time inhabiting this part of the Internet, I’ve learnt a few things so I thought I’d share them today.
Blogging will make you way more confident than you ever imagined you could be.
I was a shy 12 year old when I started my blog and I barely had the confidence to look people in the eye. Now, and this is also down to getting older but also through blogging, I can stand in front of large audiences and speak with the knowledge that the words coming out of my mouth won’t be utter rubbish. I love speaking at events so much – I’ve even said before that it’s the best drug a person can ever get. Although some nerves are inevitable, the buzz you get afterwards is worth it and the events I’ve spoken at will always be amongst some of my favourite memories.
Honesty is the driving force.
Be honest in everything you write. If you lie about reading a book or if you say you loved a book when you really disliked it, people will be able to tell. When you’re honest, you’ve got nothing to hide and people will appreciate that. Honesty is key!
