This article is based on my view points on Blogging. I have also mentioned few blogs below, which I follow and can be a help for all those who have interest in Blogging industry OR for those, who like to read stuff which is inspiring, unique or creative OR for those, looking for an idea of creating something new OR for those, who just like to read stuff without any intentions.
Following is a categorised list of blogs, which I find interesting to read at almost all the times nowadays. I have come across many blogs in last 4 months and these are few of them which I go through daily. Going through these blogs help my inner creative person to rest and enjoy the inspirational stuff and such stuff serves as a kind of fruit-smoothie which people drink during the breakfast to make their entire day energetic, to my inner creative-passionate soul which keeps it energetic all throughout the day. This has become a part of my growing and learning experience, and I feel insightful after reading these.
2. Lifestyle ( ranging from fashion, style, health food and travelling)
4. Everything: thoughtcatalog.com
5. Style and Fashion
I usually prefer blogs like girllostinthecity.com and not the specific fashion related blogs because blogs like girllostinthecity not only provide us about the daily happenings and happy events going on in the blogger’s life, but also gives us the inspiration which boosts our inner creative.
The Blogger: Emma Gannon usually writes about her favourite TV series’, places,things, books, clothes, music, ted speakers and Podcasts. I connect to her in a way that after reading her posts , my mind is full of ideas and inspirations and this adds to productivity in the day. I get to know about new speakers, books, ideas and thoughts of people which creates a strange excitement in my head to achieve certain things.
I feel connected to such blogs and hence mostly I love blogs which are personalised.
I never was a fan of fashion and designer clothes and hence I have no enthusiasm with those kind of blogs. I find them girly, and I think there is much more to life than just branded clothes and items.
I like blogs which are full of creative stuff ranging from DIY ideas to tips and tricks for a lazy girl. I like fitness blogs and only few kind of food blogs.
Some fitness blogs have all kinds of information about losing weight, creating healthy choices and creating a healthy lifestyle, but only those blogs win my attention, which are personalized and are created by people who go through these life changing journeys and are not running dietbets and 30pound lose programs to earn money.
Some food blogs like foodbabe are essentially informative and are more like reading facts for a healthy survival.
Blogs like shoutmeloud.com are the blogs which help you find your way in Blogging Industry. I follow this Blog, because it describes in detail, each and everything about Blogging industry.
I had applied for a giveaway competition by shoutmeloud and I won a Hostgator Hosting for my Blog. For those who have no idea about Hostgator, it basically will allow my Blog to be accessed via World Wide Web. In layman terms, my blog can appear in the search page of google if it finds some content related to the typed search topic. Before hosting, the website is not free and is inside a small world consisting of people who has the link of the website. But if you want other people to know about your website or to increase the traffic, you should host your website and make it available to all those unknown people from all around the world searching for similar interests as your blog topics.
Check here to know more about it.
Blogs like theselby.com are unique. When I first saw the blog I immediately fell in love with it because the photography is magnificent. The pictures are beautiful and there is a uniqueness with this blog. That is why I love such blogs, because they instil in us the idea which we never had before, even the existence of which was never there in our minds.
Blogs which focus more on style and fashion do attract me, but I just “go through” them in a non deep way, because they never create a feeling of positive happy future in my mind because these things are just materialistic MOH-MAYA things.
The real happiness and real heart-warming thoughts are the ones which acts as revitalizing agents creating a feeling of dreamy-positive-happy future in my mind, and such a feel is mostly created by blogs which raise issues and are based on daily lifestyle events concluding something vital. They are based on philosophy of growing and creating your own journey of life in an artistic way and finding happiness, exploring different ideas and taking risky and curious steps.
Basically I get obsessed with the blogs which provide me an insight or a creative idea which ultimately result in a happy boost in my life. Well, some read for entertainment and some like me read for inspirations and searching uniqueness.
When I go through different blogs, I feel like some blogs only target money whereas some blogs target passion. The Bloggers of such blogs write and do things which they love and never have the slightest of idea that their passion will be appreciated by so many people. The small moments of happiness on the blog is everything they wish for. Girls writing about their favourite beauty products, their looks and clothes, and their food makes them happy and reading about the daily life events of such girls becomes interesting for the girls going through a similar phase as them.
Hence, I feel that Blogs are a result of either expressing yourself in your own way and making a scrapbook of your life journey where you jot down everything going on in your life. I feel that its an artistic way of keeping a journal where you store the memories and make a list of all futuristic things you want to achieve, your hopes and inspirations, your thoughts and where you rant about any kind of stuff you want to.
PS: I feel that today, I have many things in my mind but I am not able to convey them, probably because I have to finish a report and also because I feel like I can’t express my thoughts and jot them down clearly today. Sometimes, Its difficult to express and jot down all the thoughts in a smooth fashion and I wonder what is the reason for this.
Also, I am going for a company trip tomorrow with other interns, organized by the college, and I will be going to a cultural trip day after tomorrow. I need to complete my report now as my alvida days are near.
PPS: Today, I tried a different style of giving title to this post. I was thinking of this at first: “My views on Blogging” but I changed it to the present one because although the post contains loads of info and facts about different blogs, the main purpose of it was to write positive affects of Blogging, and which covers 40% of the current content of the post.
