It Forced Me To Notice The Little Details In Everyday Life
Do you remember all the little details of a specific day a few years ago? No? Well, blogging pretty much forces you to notice the details you may otherwise never think twice about. I can look back on a specific project I made and remember so much about that day through the tutorial I wrote at that time. Sometimes I’ll even find myself in awe reading the details of my past days and thinking how unsubstantial the little things were to me back then, but knowing how important they are to remember now. Without blogging, I would have forgotten tiny pieces of myself without even knowing it.
I Found My Voice Through Blogging
As I mentioned before blogging can be an amazing creative outlet, we are craft bloggers here you know. Did the name A Little Craft In Your Day give it away? Darn. Blogging can be a creative outlet for really any hobby you’re willing to pour your heart into, not just crafting. Do you love your pets? Great. Do you adore fitness? Good for you. It’s so easy to get lost in the details when blogging. One thing I have learned the hard way is not to be too serious. No one has a perfect blog, and it was so freeing once I accepted that. Eventually, I found my voice and got into my writing rhythm.
It Challenged Me To Push Through The Writer’s (and Crafters) Block
Man, let me tell you about the days I am so unmotivated to blog because that does happen. It’s not that I don’t enjoy it, or that I would rather be doing something else. Sometimes I wake up and just get stuck. Stuck with writer’s block, stuck with crafters block, the whole nine yards. I can’t tell you about a magical fix to clear my head and get me back to hustling, but I can tell you that it’s normal to have those days. When I get up feeling like that it really motivates me knowing I have readers who are counting on me to provide them with their daily crafting fix! Knowing that my work is valued and appreciated usually keeps me humble, and gets me going.
I’ve Made Countless Friends
Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert we all have our treasured friends. When you blog, that friend group grows more than you’ll realize. The friends you meet while blogging will most likely be a whole lot like you. Passionate, driven creative. So many of my new friends love to craft like me! Some are sewists, some are paper crafters, some are painters, but we all share the same love of creativity. Knowing that blogging has brought so many special people into my life feels super rewarding. Supporting other people who share the same passions as I do is a great feeling.
It Created Opportunities To Learn New Things Everyday
From sewing to video editing and learning how to cook, helping to run a blog has taught me so many wonderful skills I never thought I would need. It has pushed me out of my comfort zone time and time again and I always come out the other side better for it. I enjoy learning new skills and knowing I am improving how I work every day. We may be a crafting blog primarily but you’ll notice we also have plenty of lifestyle, cooking, organization, and how to resources on the site as well. Working on a little bit of everything means there are new skills to learn and old skills to improve on all the time. It’s so fulfilling to know that blogging has helped me become a more confident person.
It Made Me Realize That I Could Earn Money Doing What I Enjoy
