Perhaps, this is one of the question I had to repeatedly ask myself too. Why do I keep on coming back to this website anyway? Why do I share bits of my life journey? What is the purpose to all of this?
When I started blogging in 2015, I never understood what the point was of sharing everything out in the open. I was probably just bored of my life that when I turned 18, I started my own blog a few months later. I found myself creating an account on Weebly. I've shared this many times but here's my very first blog entry: How to make everyday a fashion show. I know it's lame, but at that time I just found myself on the brink of losing everything in life — to the point where I felt like all my confidence has disappeared. That very first post reflects on what I thought the readers including me would like to read. The grammar wasn't perfect; I couldn't sense the style, but it was all from the heart.
A few months later, I was scrolling through different blogs hoping to find tips and other resources. I wasn't a blogger after all and was just wanting to become one. At first, I thought that lifestyle blogging would be perfect to describe my blog but soon, I realized that none of what I was writing was even about lifestyle — it was all about my personal life, my personal stories & personal experiences with a touch of faith & humor. That led me to the thought of what my purpose really is. My purpose was to create content that would be relatable to everyone reading my posts. My purpose was to tell them that they aren't alone in this, and last but not the least, my purpose was to tell them that Jesus got their backs anytime anywhere.
Truth be told, I also passed that stage where I wanted to become known as a blogger so badly. Thankfully, those selfish desires didn't last long. It was purpose over fame in the end and that's what matters to me now. So why do I blog?
To express myself in a way that speaking wouldn't otherwise do; to become an open diary for people having the same experiences as me, and to share the love of Jesus in any way I can.
- Finally completed this 31-day challenge! Thankful, blessed and really challenged!
