wow nice blog

So a few days ago, someone made a comment on my blog which made me stop and think about what exactly I was doing on here.
No, no, not like that, they weren't being mean but it just made me wonder what exactly the purpose of it was? like what are you even doing Karine?

With all hopes down and rejecting the title of a"blogger" until I knew whether this was something worth keeping, I decided to google a few things (yes google has the answer to EVERYTHING)

  1. Define: "Blog"
    A personal website or web page on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis.
  2. Define: "Blogger"
    A person who keeps and updates a blog
  3. What are the different types of blog?
    Personal, Business, schools, non-profit, Military, private, sports, how-to, tips and reviews etc
While looking through the answers to my question, I came accross this lovely blog which explained the different types of blogs out there: http://writetodone.com/the-7-types-of-blogger-which-one-are-you/

So then after a good half  hour on google looking at blogs and the different ones out there, I then understood that yes, my blog isn't the best but it doesn't have to be.
Yes it's mostly rants and my random thoughts but it is a "personal website" which means I can write whatever I feel like.. true? true.

Pretty much what I want you guys to get out of that is, yes there are businesses with blogs and such who write posts as long as essays using words I've never even heard in my life, but your blog is just as great.
You do not have to be a professional or even qualified to put your opinions out there.
To those who think that I'm not a real blogger just because I don't have as much traffic as perhaps a well known blogger, well you are wrong my friend.

There's a handful of lovely people who do take time out of their busy day to visit, read and comment and they are some of the most loveliest people I've ever came across!

So no, being a blogger isn't about how many followers you have, or how many people comment on your posts. It is about your love for it and the effort you put in by writing and posting in your very own little space.

I am so so thankful for every single one of my followers, It really means a lot to have you guys follow my craziness on this big random journey of mine!

Be kind to one another chickens!
Lots of love, Karine xx

    You're right - a blog is your space for your views and opinions, and don't let negative comments that aren't constructive deter you from continue blogging. It's so easy for people to criticize and tear something down, but do they create something themselves... probably not! So keep on blogging :o) Xx

    I've seen that Write to Done post before. I love that site for blogging and writing tips. It's so easy for people to put others down, but please don't listen to them. Blogging originally was just for people to share their inner thoughts online. It's turned into something much bigger now, but there are still plenty of personal blogs out there. Keep doing what you're doing, as long as it makes you happy :)

  11. Oh no, I hope whoever commented didn't make you feel bad! The majority of us judge ourselves way too harshly, we don't need any more negativity floating into our boats. Don't let anyone get to you. From what I've learned from my blogging experience so far, it has been a pretty tough ride. You constantly question yourself, wonder if anyone will be interested in what you have to say, ask yourself if any of your posts will make any sort of impact…don't think! Just write. Write about what you want to write about and don't give in to the negativity. You and your blog are worth so much more. Rosemary x
