Blog Blogging

I Never Thought Blogging Would | Blogtober

So for day 7 of blogtober I’ve decided to do another post from the ‘suggestions’ on Pinterest and I sort of liked the idea of writing this one because there are a couple things that came straight to mind when I read this title.

So, I never though blogging would…

cost so much. As much as this should be a negative it doesn’t always end up being one. When I first set up my blog it was just an ordinary WordPress blog that was free, this was until I decided I wanted to go one step further and buy my own domain and become self hosted. At first I was quite shocked by the price but now they do not seem so bad especially when I see the prices that some self-hosted companies cost. (Can see more on how I went self hosted here).

open up a whole new community. To say I was shocked when I started a twitter for my blog and how many other bloggers followed me and supported me is an understatement. The size of the blogging community is absolutely incredible, I cannot believe how many bloggers I have been in contact with. Fortunately for me all the bloggers I have spoken to or gone to for support have been very kind and friendly.

help me learn new things. When I started this blog I thought that I would only be blogging about things I already know or stuff that I have always been confident in. Whereas now, I have found that most of the posts I create I do research on and find out more information and statistics to help me create this content.

make me more organised. You would think that working in a school means that I should be very organised but in reality I am probably one of the most unorganised people ever. That is until I started blogging. I think this is due to planning posts, creating posts and sticking to my own deadlines. So blogging is actually helping me to improve skills for my everyday job.

    Interesting read.

    I’d say that the Time it takes up it what has really surprised me. I thought it would just be a case of. Sit down, write a post, publish.

    There is so much more to it than that.
