Ten things I have learnt since starting my blog.

14 September 2016

Hello my little dumplings,
I thought I would share with you my inspirational top 10 things I have learnt since starting my blog, and here goes... 

1. I'm actually a really funny person. 
When I write my blog post and I make my little comments in brackets sometimes they really make me chuckle, I'm not a witty person when speaking but when writing it down and blogging it just comes to me so quickly.

2. I am not alone in this world. 
I always felt as if I never quite fit in anywhere, sort of alone especially with my mental health issues, but reading others blogs shows me I am not alone. There are so many others that share their experiences to try and help others.

3. Random people take a lot of interest in my life by reading my blog posts. 
When I publish a new blog post I don't realize how many random people read them until I look at my audience views and it says people have viewed it form other countries! It's amazing!

4. My mental health does not define who I am. 
I used to think that people would just see me as a miserable, grumpy person with a short fuse and loved pushing people away. But when I wrote my 'my experience with mental illness' post people started to understand more about me and why I am the way I am.

5.  My life is really funny. 
I didn't realize how funny my life is being scared of everything, I am such a loser. 

6. Writers block happens a lot!
When first thinking about starting a blog I had so many ideas.. these all disappeared shortly after and I never knew how much writers block affects you. It's actually so stressful not knowing what to write.

7. I have conquered more than I ever imagined I would.
When I wrote my 'If I can do it, you can do it post' I actually surprised myself with how many fears I conquered in a 1 week holiday. WI didn't think I had conquered as much as I did until I wrote it all down. 

8. Other blogging people are so so friendly.
When I first started my blog I had a little help from a friend at school. She has had a blog for a while and she has gone so far with it it's called 'Little Thoughts'. She mentioned me on twitter to all of her blogging friends and they all sent me tweets and messages saying 'good luck., it looks great so far' and things like that and they're all great, friendly people!

9. You can blog about literally... anything.
When having a writers block I try to look up ideas on what I can post about and the ideas that come up are everything and anything which is the great thing about blogging.

10. I love blogging. 
I just LOVE blogging, there I said it. 

That is it for now folks.
Thanks xoxox
