I know that is quite the title, but it’s exactly what I want to write about today. I know I have mentioned why I started blogging in passing, but I thought I would go more in-depth.
The jumping off point for me was that I missed writing and wanted an outlet for that. But, my friends were the ones that really pushed me and encouraged me to actually go for it. In fact, they still are pushing me and encouraging me along this journey. It has been the most fun and the best feeling to see all of you interacting and reading my words (even if they’re not that good, lolz).
Now for the people who influenced, and are still influencing me, to write what I write. It all started when I began watching Zoe Sugg’s (Zoella on YouTube and everywhere else) videos. There was something about how she portrayed herself and what she talked about with such passion that really had me wanting to do the same. Those videos led to watching videos of other well-known YouTubers, and her friends, like Tanya Burr and Niomi Smart.
I just kept watching their videos and eventually came across tons of other people’s videos that I fell in love with.
Some of those people are Estèe Lalonde, Carrie Rad, Allana Davison, and Jamie Paige. I just love how down-to-earth and real these four women are. I feel like if we met in person we would be best friends.
I always feel great after I watch all these women doing their thing and being badass at what they do. It makes me work that much harder to be anything like them.
All in all, I have learned a lot from all of them and this blogging experience. I am constantly tweaking how I do things and constantly learning.
The most important thing I’ve learned from all of this…Go after those dreams, work hard on those dreams, forget what others say and just do it. Do what you’re passionate about no matter what.
That is what I want to leave you with. I encourage you to do the same. Whatever dreams or aspirations you have, go out there and accomplish them. Even if others in your life don’t understand, just know that I will be there in your corner rooting you on because I was in your same position too.
Thanks for reading!
