3 ways blogging has changed me in 3 years.

3 ways blogging has changed me in 3 years.

Okay so this post is a little late. It was 3 years ago last Saturday, 18th November, that I started this little blog. I remember being sat in Central Perk in Liverpool, having been watching YouTube videos and reading blogs for a while, and thinking 'this looks like fun, I want to try!'.  And so I did. I signed up to a Blogger account there and then, and I guess that was that. I am a completely different girl to the girl that hit publish on that very first blog post 3 years ago (which I'm not going to link because lol, it's embarrassing), and I guess a part of that will be down to simply growing up a little. 3 years can change anyone, never mind when you're in your early 20's and still trying to figure out life, what you want to do, who you want to be and all of that fun stuff (which btw I'm still like 10,000 years from figuring out...). But, I thought it would be a nice way to mark 3 years of blogging, by taking a look back at how it's changed me and my life, for the better.   C O N F I D E N C E There is absolutely no doubt that blogging has boosted my confidence, ten-fold. It's made me push myself and do things that used to panic me and freak me out, where as now, I don't give them a second thought. Things like posting photos of myself online. Like standing in the middle of the City and taking photos with hundreds of people walking past. Like heading to blog events on my own and networking with whoever happens to be there. I wouldn't have been able to do half of the things I have done if it wasn't for this, which makes me very thankful to have found this hobby.

C A R E E R I don't think I'd be where I am in my career if it wasn't for my blog. I think I've talked about this a lot, but making a career move from Accountancy to Radio, probably wouldn't have been possible without it. I was able to showcase that creative side of me that I needed to succeed in this new industry. I needed to show that I wasn't just all about the figures, but that I was also motivated and driven enough to make something work on my own, without any other incentive apart from... well, I wanted to. That's without even taking into consideration all of the skills you can add to your CV from your blog. Think time management, communication with PRs, sticking to deadlines, photography, understanding an audience and all of that fun stuff!   P E O P L E This is probably my favourite one. Not only are most of my closest friends now bloggers, but this move to London would've been a whole lot harder. I've been able to meet up with and spend time with some simply fabulous ladies that I've only gotten to know through blogging. It's literally the best thing being surrounded by people that get you, that have the same interests and thoughts and goals as you and that you can get inspiration from every single day. It's the best.
