I can't even remember the last time I actually sat down and blogged. Some of the reasons include: hectic days at school which completely tires me out, marking endlessly until the early hours of the morning, and with the last bit of energy I actually have left, I use to study and read books for my own assignments. Here and there I'll try to squeeze in an Instagram post or two. Needless to say, blogging has been LAST on my list of things-to-do, which made me reconsider whether or not I still want to blog? Here are five reasons why I decided to continue:
1. I am no side-line chick
I am not one to watch from the side lines while others are having a great time at events, launch parties and all that jazz. I love getting involved and being part of the action.
I realized that even though there wasn't enough time to blog, I still maintained that passion for the things I love the most. While driving to campus, I would think of ideas that I would want to put on the blog. In fact, putting them on the blog was about the only problem, but my passion was still there though.
3. Creative space
Blogging can be seen as my creative space in which I can just rant,vent and complain about things. Also, it has become a space where I discuss trends, fashion, beauty and lifestyle stuff. It is truly my creative outlet where I can just 'let go' of the week/months build up of creative juices. Blogging also lets me keep my sanity through everything happening around me.
4. My "fans"
This might sound vain, but I do it for the people who enjoy my posts. Sure, I might not have thousands of followers but I am grateful for the ones I do have.
5. Future PR and Marketing princess
If I didn't go into teaching I would've gone into PR. I suppose I went into teaching because it provides you with long term benefits and teaching is my other love and passion. I can say the same for PR, I definitely 'see' myself in the PR environment. I started this blog as a basis of my portfolio for meeting new people and showcasing my creative energy. It is because of this that I didn't give up blogging.
Hope you enjoyed reading my post!
