I never thought blogging would...#Blogtober Day10

Sjoooe! Hahaha, this is a tough one! Said no blogger ever! We all have different expectations for our blogs, personal, business, pleasure, leisure, you name it, there is a blogger out there with that expectation.


As you know by now, I'm still very much new to the blogging thing, but I have an honest answer to today's prompt!

In so many ways, blogging really is not what I expected, it is much much more than I expected!

I NEVER thought blogging would be so challenging! Having good content constantly is quite a challenge!

I really expected it to be easy, because there are SO many bloggers out there doing it!!
I never thought it would take as much time, or effort as it does.
I never thought I would need to take photos of everything I like, see or do, but you never know when you might need a photo! I also never knew how badly I need a new camera!
I never thought it would make me want to attempt nearly every-single DIY home decor project EVER!
I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I am, sure I thought I had alot to say, I wanted the world to hear my voice, or whoever was interested to hear it. But I never thought I would grow to be so fond of it!

When I started my blog I thought to myself, I don't really care if nobody reads my blog, I know my family will and one day our children can see all the mischief we got up to, that's why I started it in the first place, but now whenever I log into my blog dashboard, I check my stats, how many page views I got, how many comments, where are my viewers from, its just all so exciting!

I really enjoy blogging, it's my little corner of the internet where I get to share a little bit of me with the world! I don't think I be stopping any time soon, I think it's a great way to look back on your life in the future and see how you've grow, how much you've accomplished and how things have changed!

  1. I don't think anyone knows how much time it takes up! I'm only new at blogging but I thought it would be a quick thing I could do every so often. It doesn't seem to be working out like that though - I'm spending so much time on it.. at least it's the same for everyone! I too love D.I.Y home decor projects ;)

  4. I totally agree with you! It is pretty challenging to come up with creative posts and good photos, etc. but once you get the hang of it, it's really enjoyable and starts to be just a little bit easier... So glad you're part of this linkup! :) Happy Friday!

  5. I am also new to blogging and like you thought that only my family would read my blog. I was even surprised when friends and old teacher started reading my blog! Now it's crazy having people I have never met read my blog! Keep it up!
