Hi guys – hope you are well and as excited as I am for the blogging contest. So, the wait is finally over but, before that a little history of my blog about and how blogging has helped me. Because, a blog birthday is the best time to share it, right?
Three years back I started blogging to be accountable, for my weight loss journey! When I started blogging it was more like a memo and for weight checks only! Trust me there is nothing wrong in that. It’s completely okay to start a blog, as a hobby. In fact, you want that’s all your blog can be a hobby. But, you can maybe even make a profession out of it. (Let me know in the comments section if you want me to do a post on this)
How blogging has helped me
- Blogging has made me more creative
- Blogging has almost turned me into a mompreneur
- Blogging has given me the freedom to earn money, from the comfort of my home
- Blogging has given me the liberty to work when I want, without a dress code
- Blogging has given me many friends
I started taking part, in a lot of Blog-Hops and it really helped me connect with bloggers and better my blogging. Twitter is an amazing tool to make friends, did you know? (The right kind obviously!)
So, to sum it up why should you blog and become a blogger?
- To start an online journal
- Become an entrepreneur
- Meet new and like-minded people
- Write about what you like for fun or as a profession
Blogging Contests And Linky
I have hosted three linky’s on my blog so far, one solo and two with co-bloggers Bushra & Shalini respectively. Linking up is an amazing way to get to know thoughts of other bloggers and to connect with them. My favorite two blog-hops thus far have been Monday Mommy Moments & Thankful Thursdays
