I’ve been contemplating starting a blog for a wee while now. I’ve had many in the past but none of them seem to grow with me and get abandoned throughout the journey of life. At least that’s what I tell myself to justify letting them go. It’s been a tough decision to get back on the blogging bandwagon as I wasn’t sure what my area of expertise was. I’ve seen a lot of blogging experts state that it’s crucial to have a niche for your blogging. Nothing too narrow, but nothing too broad either. I enjoy health and fitness, beauty and fashion and cooking, but would I find myself able to focus on any one of these topics? No, I don’t think so.
But then I realised that it doesn’t really matter what these so called experts claim a blog should be. I’m sure somebody told Steve Jobs that the iPhone was never going to be a success and look at it now! Is that an actual fact? I don’t know. Is it even a comparable situation? Probably not. But I’m going to roll with it anyway. Some may call me stupid. Others may call me an innovator. I’ll let you decide.
I envision this blog as a place to write about anything worth writing about in my life. Whether it be a cool new product I’ve found or a recipe I love. It’s about all the things I find interesting as a female in my early 20s. The tagline reflects the fact that I can be quite lazy in a lot of the things I do. I love to cook, do my make up and exercise but generally speaking, I like to get them over and done with as quickly as possible. I actually like to call this trait efficient but The efficient girls guide to her 20s didn’t quite have the same ring to it.
I may not know my exact niche for this blog. But I do know what I want to get out of it. Firstly, a place to reflect on the journey of life. I’m the type of person who gains a lot by putting my thoughts into words. Whether it be speaking them aloud or writing them down, it helps me to sort my thoughts and clarify what is going through my mind. Secondly, I hope that by sharing these thoughts with whoever chooses to read them, they gain something from it. Whether it be entertainment, knowledge or inspiration. I hope that it enhances even one persons life in some way.
Blogging is an exciting journey and I’m excited to be back in the world. Here’s to the posts that are entertaining to read, pictures that are exciting to look at and topics that are challenging to write.
Let the blogging journey begin!
