My good friend Notes has created a new Monday meme -" I ♥ Me", where she poses a question each Friday, to be answered on the following Monday. This week's question is : "What have you realised about yourself through your blogging"
So, what have I realised through my blogging?
1) My inner extrovert is more important than I realised
I may have mentioned before that I'm a bit of an introvert. I am the sort of person who has few, but very close friendships - most of my friends I have known a long time - and I do not easily meet new people, other than very superficially. Yet the thing I enjoy most about blogging is the social aspect, the interaction with others, even if it is mainly in a virtual way. Heck - I've even managed to overcome my anxieties and meet one or two of them in real life, and guess what - they are actually quite nice people!
2) It's important to have a creative outlet
Whilst my husband reads my blog, and occasionally makes suggestions or comments, blogging is definitely "my" thing. It makes me laugh, it has occasionally made me cry, but most of all it makes me think. And in this day and age that can't be a bad thing.
3) I can make time for things I enjoy
You may not know that I have second blog - The Fantasy Decorator - where I indulge my love for homes and interior decoration in a purely amateurish way. As well as having two children and working full time, I honestly don't really know how I find time for one blog - let alone two. Turns out you don't have to have a perfectly spotless house either - it's much easier to dream about it online and close your eyes to the chaos of the real world.
