For the longest time, my mum was my blog's biggest (and only) fan, apart from sharing snippets here and there of blogposts on Twitter - a social platform that the majority of my friends refrain from having - blogging remained one of those things that only celebrities and fashion companies kept. However, as I began to promote more posts on the likes of a more universally used platform like Instagram, messages began to trickle in from friends and family alike.
In this internet-dominated era of 2015, blogging still remains a hobby shrouded in mystery to the general public. I get quizzed a lot about what exactly it is I write about on this little blog 'o mine, to which I answer: "anything and everything." As my blog began to gain more momentum in my social circles, I did find it difficult opening up and discussing more sensitive topics, such as my mental health and past experiences with bullying. I was afraid of what people would say, imagining a tidal wave of whispers behind my back, judging me for being so candid.
So, dear readers, let your friends in on your blog, let them be a part of your journey, and who knows, one day maybe they could even start a blog, wouldn't it be amazing to think that it was you who inspired them?
