Todays a pretty random post because I have some free time and thought it was a good idea to tell you some of my thoughts.
What do I mean by Blogger vs People???
People can be so encouraging and so thoughtful when speaking about blogging so here are some thoughts that were at the back of my mind.
As a blogger myself, I never share anything blog related to my friends. It may come across a bit weird because you are writing for the internet. People who don’t blog, will never realise that blogging is a passion and a fun hobby, not to make money. Maybe its just the fear of being judged or not being normal because your friends hobby is to watch movies or something else.
This brings me to a statement. An Anonymous blogger.
I feel like when your in school, other will never get their head round why you are blogging. Due to this reason, many bloggers are anonymous (including myself). I guess it depends on the blogger themselves.
As you know, the blogging industry is HUUGE so it is pretty daunting for any new or current blogger. So it can be pretty scary to tell close friends because your mind will be spiralling on their thoughts on you being a blogger. A response which NO one wants to hear is “oh, so your trying to be Zoella?” or so and so and than your mind freaks out and you decide to tell just your family or no one at all. For me its upsetting because i want to share something I like doing but not prepared for the response or any hate.
I wish it could be easy to be confident to talk about blogging to the non-bloggers because if it was easy than I would’ve told my friends a year and a half ago that I created it. As a non-sociable girl i am to some people in school, I’d say it would be pretty surprising for me to have created a blog. One thing that some people may not realise is that, writing is pretty thereputic and can be a source of escape from reality.
I want to give a shoutout to the bloggers who can stayy confident and scared to tell others about their blog. I truly admire you and wish i could do that (one day).
I’ve seen many people open about their feelings or their insecurities because they have no one else to tell. But the sad thing is that, written within the post it says “hope no one from school finds my blog”. It really makes me wonder why people use blogging against bloggers just because its different or because a vast majority in your school doesn’t do it..
On the other hand…..
There are those wonderful individuals that take the time to read blogs and appreciate the time and effort that were put in the posts. I want to say a thank you to those who put a nice comment, who enjoy my posts and take the time to read them.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared my thoughts and feel like I should do it more often. This thought was on my mind since day 1 of blogging and from reading posts. So my question to you is…
What are your thoughts of Blogger vs People?
