Major Adulting: 6 Month Blogging Successes and Goals

I can’t believe how fast these 6 months have gone… This been a big success so far for me but I’ve still got a long way to go with it. So here are some of the reasons why I’d consider these blogging successes, why it was a great choice for me, and why I’d encourage you all to do the same!

Broadening my horizons

Starting this blog means I now look at everything with a bit more active thought. I plan better and somehow I see things more clearly than before. By actively trying my best to find content, I am also making sure I don’t waste a single opportunity. Sunrise Horizon Image above by the talented Mr Schild.

Finding my voice

We all use different voices when we speak to one another and I wrote a post previously about my online voice. I didn’t want to change myself based on my perceived readership and I am glad that I’ve been able to stick with my roots but also get more in tune with my writing style!

I can do Science, me!

I’ve had a love for Astronomy and Science in general for a long time, but since school, it’s been put on the back-burner to my other hobbies (mainly sleeping). Blogging means I have to research key concepts in order to blog about them. I also love English Lit/writing so… it’s an obvious choice!

I don’t have to compartmentalise or restructure my thoughts to fit into a Facebook post. I have a big mouth and a lot to say! With blogging, I can say exactly what I feel and not have to edit myself too much. (Although to be honest, I am at an awful disadvantage to Facebook in that I need it to get my posts to you!)

Learning to adapt

I am a little neurotic, very hectic and lack focus most of the time! Since I began to log my thoughts I’ve learnt to structure my life and I’ve never been more creative in such a short time! Now to take my creativity to new levels and adapting myself more to fill my time with learning new things!

Improving my Photography Skills

When I go anywhere now, I am always thinking of the best composition for the photos I take. No more “family photo” pictures on holidays and trips – I am trying to capture what’s interesting to the eye and it’s driving me to improve my skills!

Remembering the good times

I often don’t remember all the amazing things that I’ve done – I am always waiting for the next big thing. By blogging my thoughts and logging my experiences it means I get to look back on all the fun things I do and realise how lucky I am to have done them!

So here’s to another 6 months of blogging successes! I’ve got a lot of things to improve on but I am getting there. I’ll just continue to be open-minded, open-hearted and keep striving to achieve new things!
