Sometimes I wonder what my life would’ve been like had I not started this blog. It helped lead me into photography and graphic design, which are skills I continue to work on and hone. I’ve always loved writing, which is my favorite part of blogging. I made the big leap into the blogging world just over a year and a half ago, after being encouraged by my parents and bosses at the time to do so. I was hesitant, nervous, and unsure of the direction my blog would take. Now I’m so grateful that I didn’t let these preoccupations stop me from starting!
Starting somewhere now is better than starting somewhere later.
We all start somewhere. I’m so happy that I started my blog when I did, because I was able to utilize my resources and experiment in the kitchen without any worries. I had a lot more free time to devote to improving my photography skills and find my niche in the blogging community. My blog has blossomed into a vegan food & lifestyle blog providing inspiration for recipes, travel, and design. I have dreams of what it will become in the future and hope to continue to watch it grow. But had I not started, I would not be where I am today!
My biggest advice is don’t ever let fear hold you back. You might be worried about what others will think or say about you, but honestly what really matters is how you feel about yourself. It’s tempting to get wrapped up in the world of Instagram likes and pageviews, but at the end of the day I’m happy to be able to have a platform to write and share my ever-evolving passions. I hope you have the courage to start somewhere with whatever it may be!
