How blogging has changed me (for the better!)

What flat lay am I going to do with this post? Which filter shall I use on VSCO and Snapseed to edit the photos? When should I publish this post? Is that enough content for a post?

It's official - I've been blogging for well over 18 months and my brain has transformed into a blogger brain. Do you know how I know? Well, when I go out and about, the only thing I think about is whether there is a chance to capture a good photo, whether it be the place where I'm having my meal in or even the sunset outside, I'm always looking for a good photo opportunity. In a way, blogging has made me more perceptive.

But that's what blogging does to you, it makes you see things in a whole new light. I think I've appreciated my surroundings more.

When I buy stuff from Amazon, it's mainly blogging props I purchase rather than stuff for myself. Lighting, flat lay's, VSCO, Pinterest and engagement have become my most commonly used words in my vocabulary. It's crazy, the change in the last 18 months has even astounded me, let alone my family and friends.

Blogging has allowed my inner self to get off her arse, put her laptop on and show off her creative side through the art of writing. It's allowed me to put my stamp on the blogging world, albeit it is a small Royal Mail-sized stamp.

In this day and age blogging is such a vast growing and influential industry, it's quite staggering how many new bloggers I have seen entering blogger-verse ready to make their mark and show their uniqueness through writing and pictures.

Blogging has allowed me to develop new skills, even skills I never realised I was doing. From copywriting to editing to networking and also online marketing - see, these are skills that not only I've learnt, but you lovely bloggers have too!

Getting my first proper sponsored post a couple of weeks ago really made me feel that all the sweat and frying my brain trying to think of new content was well and truly worth it.

Would I say that blogging has changed me for the better?
Well, I've said recently that I see writing as a long-term career goal, that pretty much answers the above question, doesn't it?

Has blogging made you a better person?
