Something Slightly Different

Being a new blogger you could probably guess that one of many reasons for starting blogging is down to other bloggers that I follow and read. These are a variety of blogs, some about make up and beauty products, some about gaming, some about mental health and some about life in general.

One of the bloggers I follow and find particularly interesting is Famous In Japan. Her latest post talks about negativity in the blogging community at the moment. It’s an interesting read and I have to agree. There’s a lot of negativity in blogs at the moment. And it gets me wondering if this is because people are blogging to share a passion or to just get things off their chests anymore but to get freebies and compete in a game of who-has-the-most-followers-or-readers.

I started this blog as a means of being able to say what I think without consequence. Most of the time anyway! I like looking at products I’ve particularly enjoyed and sharing my thoughts. I like having a place where I feel I can say what’s on my mind without worrying too much about what people will think. 

What are your thoughts on blogging at the moment? And why did you all get into blogging?
