My Purpose for Blogging

I have mentioned before in other award why I started blogging, it had to do about my need to express myself in all the areas that I wanted to fangirl about, but had no one in real life to fangirl to. That’s is still very much why I keep doing it day to day, of course, but also I now like to know what everyone else is thinking about my opinions, likes and dislikes (guess is not so different from you Kat!). I like to fangirl about ship with other bloggers, or discuss plot points, and my opinions sometimes even change through this balanced discussion of ideas.

I also like to share informative stuff. Whenever I find a cool thing that I think some of my followers might enjoy, that keeps me going too.


I also feel like blogging has opened my world a bit (even if it makes me spend a little more time in front of a screen!). But I learn about other people, cultural habits, the differences from my experience to anyone else’s, I find new books to read, movies to see and TV shows to gush over.

So, my purpose?! All in all, I blog because it makes me happy and completes me in some weird and wonderful way. The purpose is to do what brings me joy :).

    You couldn’t have said it any better. Blogging definitely fills a huge gap in my soul, and is a great light and joy to my life, especially at this time when I’m having some personal troubles.
    Thank you for nominating me! ❤

    Blogging really is a wonderful way to relieve stress, and it really can be considered a hobby. However, there are moments where I wonder if I spend too much time blogging and it becomes overwhelming, but blogging burnout doesn’t last too long. I love this community too much to leave it! Thank you for the nomination, Cristina!
