There are so many people that are blogging, you begin to wonder, why do so many people do it? I assume there are many reasons. Is the reason most people start blogging the same reason they are still blogging?
I originally started blogging on my family history blogs, My Mother's Family History and The Plummer Gang Revisited. I spent lots of time last year researching my family history. I then decided to set up blogs for each side of my family. I found that I really enjoyed blogging. The other bloggers out there are so fantastic. I have found bloggers that I would love to spend time with in real life. I hope to get the chance to meet them someday. There are so many wonderful people in the blogging world.
So in February of this year I decided to start another blog. This blog was started to help me lose weight. I have always been one of those people that if I had to weigh in front of people I would be very careful of what I ate so that I would do really good when I weighed in. I thought maybe just having people on my blog to answer to I could do it. I have been doing very well with this. I would like to lose a few more pounds and then maintain the weight loss forever. Weekly weigh ins have been very motivating for me.
I take a picture of the number on the scale and post it each week.
I have decided to expand my blog to be more of a lifestyle blog and I have found a huge interest in growing my blog and trying to monetize it. I would like to stay at home and make money blogging. I have spent lots of time researching how all the social media works. I am trying to build my social media sources and I have started writing about that. I find this area very interesting and I may just have to keep researching and posting about it.
Weight loss will always be a part of my blog! My blog has helped me lose weight and change how I eat. I have become more focused on eating Paleo/Primal/Low Carb.
I love reading blogs! Okay bloggers, tell me your story. Why did you start blogging and have your reasons for blogging changed over time?
I am blogging with the September Blog Every Day Challenge. Please come join us! It will be fun! Karissa has all the prompts on her blog at Fresh Start On A Budget.
