Thoughts On Blogging



Day 4 The October Daily Blogging Experience

This is an easy one since I'm new to this whole blogging thing.  What prompted me to start my own blog was a sudden jolt of inspiration from one of my favorite bloggers. As I mentioned before, I was always a silent reader, wishing I also had a blog, and I just launched one last month! At first, I contemplated on whether to choose a Tumblr or Blogspot account and I ended up with the latter since I find it more user-friendly. Back then, I already knew what I wanted to do with my blog, which is basically a collection of everything that I'm fond of - fashion, beauty, books, lifestyle, video games.  During the first stages of Wanderlust, I was constantly on the look out for blogging ideas and I'd create drafts and tweak them a bit to suit my taste before clicking the 'Publish' button. And whenever I find a certain article, photo, quote, or memory inspiring, I fashion them into something that fits my personality and come up with unique entries. Some of my earliest entries were sentiments about the past and book reviews. And then I stumbled upon the link ups(the fun part!) which started with 'The Sunday Currently' by Ms. Lauren, 'The Happy List' by Camie Juan, and this 'October Daily' by Mary! I was able to get to know more fellow bloggers through these link ups and I'm delighted to exchange words with them. I never knew how fun this would turn out to be until I started it! Now my only regret is not starting sooner! 

I think I'm getting the hang of it after one month of blogging. Although I know I stilll have a lot to learn and improve, but there's always a chance as I go along! Right now, I'm extremely enjoying and I've no plans on stopping soon! :)
