In The Spotlight: A Beautiful Mess: Blog LifeSunday, 6 July 2014
For a while now I've been questioning my purpose for blogging. I started my blog in 2008 - I've been blogging a bloody long time. Now I think it's kind of inevitable that you compare yourself to other people, that's life. I've got friends in the blogging community who have been able to make a career out of their blog. This isn't something that I would necessarily want to do but seeing them achieve such success has been a little bit of an eye opener for me. What do I want to achieve from my blog?
Of course we all know and love the A Beauitful Mess but what I found out through Sinead's blog is that they have recently published an online blog course called Blog Life. The basic premise of the course is to keep you inspired and to help you form your blogs identity. This is great for new bloggers or bloggers like me who need to light that fire again. Although it may not be my aim to make a career out of my blog, I spend an awful lot of my spare time on it and of course I'd like it to have some measure of success. I hope that by the end of the course I'll be re-energized. You even get set little homework tasks in each of the sections to really get your brain working.
I'm sure you're no stranger to their wonderful photography app either - it has such a lovely aesthetic. Seeing how much they have achieved really inspires and pushes me to think about creating exciting shareable content. Despite only downloading 'Blog Life' today I can see that it is going to mean the start of something new and exciting for me. It'll give me the kick up the bum I've so desperately needed!
