Happy Wednesday friends!

Lately, I have had some friends express their interest in wanting to start a blog. I am always to share advice to those who want to start and always encourage people to go after whatever creative outlet they want to pursue whether it be blogging, YouTube, running and Etsy shop, etc. If you're thinking about starting a blog or on the fence about starting one, today I'm sharing my top 5 reasons why you should start one today!


1. Creative Outlet
Blogging is such a great creative outlet and you can truly do whatever to make it your own. You can pretty much write about anything, and the only rule is to make sure it's something that YOU enjoy writing about it. It can be a fashion and style blog (whaddup), a vegan recipe blog, a lifestyle blog, fitness blog, a puppy blog.. you get the point. It's such a great way to show off your creative side and get your right brain workin'!


2. It's a good side hustle/project
I once heard that everyone should have some type of side hustle or project that they're excited about whether it be a blog, YouTube, building bird houses, running a small Etsy shop, painting, etc. It's a great thing to get you excited about and a way to creatively express yourself. Even if isn't blogging, I'd highly recommend finding some side hobby to do with your spare time. 


3. You meet great like minded people on and offline
I think one of my favorite things about blogging is meeting all of the incredible people on and offline! It still blows my mind that I have met some great friends through the internet as well as connected with so many great people. It's like I gained hundreds of new friends over the past few years and I'm so thankful for that!


4. It can be used as an online portfolio
Think about it, this is basically your online portfolio. This is a great way to share how you are able to run your own website, create content, make graphics, write, tell a story, etc. Even if you're not planning to go into something like advertising, journalism, or anything similar, having a blog is a great way to practice your writing skills!



5. It pushes you outside of your comfort zone
I've been put outside of my comfort zone in ways I didn't think would ever happen through blogging (networking with new people, taking photos out in public, meeting with brands, etc. ect. ect.). It's always great to push yourself and try new things outside of what you're comfortable with. I also think blogging oddly enough has helped me not care too much what others think. For example, I've pretty much (not fully) gotten used to taking photos in public and not caring who gives me odd stares or am more open to wearing what I want to wear instead of being nervous of what others think. 



And that's it! Those are my top 5 reasons for wanting to start a blog. If you're ever on the fence of starting a blog I'd say DO IT. it's so rewarding and you meet so many incredible people on the way.
