What Has Blogging Brought Into My Life

What Has Blogging Brought into My Life

Oh the sweet luxury of the extra time off work in between Christmas and New Years Eve! The free time in the morning, nothing pressuring you to get out of the bed. Big brunch instead of a porridge for breakfast and cheeky glass (or two) of wine before sleep every night. Life can’t get any better, can it? I got very ill during Christmas but after that I made sure I made the most of my free time!

I’ve used all this time wisely, got to read an amazing book (John Grisham – The Rainmaker) watch tons of movies, saw my friends and family and I also got to reminiscence (a lot). During December I took some time off from my blog. Apart from the fact that I was busy at work, I needed the time to think.

And as the time flies, the gap between online life and reality started to lengthen until it became a distant memory. 

And it’s a lovely place to get stuck in, I have to admit…not having to worry that I haven’t posted today or if it’s too dark to take my pictures. On the other hand, the whole time I felt like there was something missing and I couldn’t quite put my finger to it. But I did, eventually, otherwise I wouldn’t be typing these words now. And I believe this break made the online world all that more exciting when I’d came back to it…So I decided to summarise all the things that I would miss never coming back to you guys!…

What Has Blogging Brought into My Life

1)    Friends!
Cliché I hear you say. But for someone who lives in a different country, friends are not that easy to come by. I’ve met lovely girls and boys on my road, making this whole experience a lot more successful. For those of you who haven’t yet. Don’t be afraid to go to bloggers meets. I went to all of them by myself, knowing someone will be there and they will be lovely. Not once was I disappointed! You can find all the bloggers events I’ve been to by clicking on the link 😉

2)    All the fun!
As mentioned previously, you get to meet new people you would never meet, go to meet ups, get pressies, cooperate with amazing companies…and it’s all fun! And I haven’t even started talking about twitter chats! Not just the official ones happening every evening but also the casual ones with other blogging friends that uplift your spirit and make you feel part of something very special! Don’t be afraid, tweet me over at @Mode_Lily and let’s be best friends!

3)    The creativity!
Being creative day after day, over and over again…that teaches one a thing or two. The more you write, the more you take pictures and the more you edit them, the more you learn and the more you become productive. It forces one to be more creative and to see inspiration everywhere. You learn to see things from a different perspective, get to meet people with different views and that broadens your horizon.

What Has Blogging Brought into My Life

When I started my Instagram ModeLily, my pictures were all over the place. It took time to find my style and my own personal theme to stand out. I think I finally found it and I’m feeling really happy about it.

My blog has opened so many doors for me I could never even
imagined existed! In fact, blogging taught me to be creative again. I can make a difference in other people’s lives through my writing or my pictures and this keeps me going when I feel…uninspired.

It’s you, my readers, that keeps me going.


Yours truly,

Dash xx

      I'm so glad you and others feel the same way. I feel like I would be less of a person without blogging. Xx

    You make me want to take blogging to the next level as you are clearly putting so much in and getting so much out.

    I also feel that blogging makes me experience things differently: I really look for the beautiful shots everywhere, I see the beauty, I find lifestyle inspiration in so many other people, in the little things they do. I think that when I am blogging I am so much open to the world and it's something I really love. Blogging makes me feel good, it gives me a voice and if others love it too than that's a plus. Keep the lovely blog posts coming!

    Great post! This is oh-so-true for me as well. We must never stop challenging ourselves as writers and creators in our blogging journey!

    Fab post! My blog is still quite young so I haven't made many friends through it or gone to any events.. Yet! I do however totally agree with your creativity point – it gives you the extra incentive to do the things you love!

    You have such a passion for life!

    Blogging does lead to many open doors. I love, love, love the networking – perhaps because it can be done from the comfort of my home. I have met some wonderful bloggers since starting my journey and they have all impacted on my life in one way or another.

    I love your post! Blogging certainly does bring a lot of new and exciting things into your life and i think making new friends is one of the best parts! – May i ask where you got that white notebook from? It’s also in the picture on twitter with the monthly stats etc? did you make it yourself?
