Why I Started Blogging?

Five years ago, I worked at a fast food restaurant, and I had the best co-workers. They were always so nice and understanding. I loved that we all got along well. It made the shifts go by much faster. I would always be the happy-go-lucky person. I was happy to be there because it meant that I got to work with amazing people.

I would always send them my positive energy to them. I can tell some days they needed an extra boost of positive vibes. I was reading a lot of self help books at the time, because I felt like there was a void in my life. I was going through a transitional period at that time. My mama and I moved out of my childhood house and I was starting a new job. I was looking for a way for a new way to better myself. I wanted to feel more happier about the whole situation. After reading a few of those books, you can say I became the positive guru.

During that time I went to my friend’s mom’s writing workshop. At the end of the workshop we were encouraged to share our piece, if we wanted to. I loved sharing my words with others. I had rediscovered my passion for writing.

I would encourage my co-workers that we all should drink water with lemons or cucumbers since they provided many health benefits. I loved bringing in my water bottles with lemon and cucumbers. I had this water bottle that said “Don’t wish for it, work for it.” They ended up following my trend. It made me feel that my words and thoughts had a positive impact on others.

“Don’t wish for it, work for it.”

I had these daily affirmation cards and I would bring them into work and we would talk about it lots. I always brought positive vibes with me wherever I went, because you never know who needs it the most.

One day, I casually said I should start a blog. I had some of my self help books authors started with a blog so I had become inspired by their beginnings. All of my co-workers said that I should totally do that, since they can see me doing that because I am always a positive person.

My first blog posts were about the writings from the workshops. I later built on to some other topics about how to better yourself, how to be a positive person and how to reach your goals. Whenever I blogged about anything, I felt like I was doing something amazing. I was spreading positive vibes to others, and helping people believe in themselves.

I am so thankful for the people I have worked with and met on the way. My co-workers were always so nice to me. They threw me a surprise birthday party. They always believed in me. I am happy that I am still in touch with them, five years later.

For all of my fellow follower, how did you start blogging and why? I would love to read the reasons in the comments. 🙂

    Great post– It might sound strange and dramatic, but I started my site in 2012 after being told to do so by an unusual figure that spoke to me in a vivid dream. Well, they actually told me to start giving my creativity away to the largest audience possible (Not specifically to start a blog), but that was how it turned out. At the time I had been doing a few small art shows, but it was all kind of a dead end. Since then I have been able to meet and help creative people all over the world!

      Thanks! That is so neat! I am happy that our blogs met. I really enjoy reading yours.
      I first started my blog in May of 2015, and then I took a break for a few years. Then I thought about my blog two months ago. A week after that I was meditating to a guided meditation about gratitude. It made me want to start up my blog about gratitude so I had came back to the blogging world. That was my inspiration for the Gratitude Challenge.

    I wish I had such a cool story behind starting a blog. I myself started just because. Had always found comfort in writing (though now that I write for a living it’s begun to be a source of frustration lol) so it just made sense to start. Thanks for sharing your story!
