Good afternoon everyone,
I hope that you’re all keeping well!
When I first started Sweeney’s Blogs, I had no idea what to expect, but I am so glad that I took the leap of faith & made the page! Today’s blog is going to be about how blogging, why it’s such a rewarding thing to do & some of the things that it has taught me! 🙂
Hello & Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!
I started Sweeney’s Blogs back on February 3rd 2019, and what a crazy ride these last 3 years have been!! The page does not stop going from strength to strength, and I am so grateful to see the page doing so well!
When I was growing up, I didn’t really know what a blog page was, and I did not think for one second that I would find myself writing blogs on a weekly basis as I got older. I decided to start Sweeney’s Blogs off at a time when I was struggling a little bit mentally, and I wasn’t too sure what to do with myself. The original intention for the page was an outlet for my thoughts and feelings – a place where I can share some of the things that truly do matter to me.
From this original ‘thought seed’ grew a much bigger idea & motivation – I wanted to create a blog page that can help & support others, a platform where people can come together and talk about the things that genuinely mean something to them. I never set out to build an individual blog page, I wanted to create a community, and seeing that vision become a reality is such a fulfilling experience.
Sweeney’s Blogs has helped me to learn so much more about myself, society & life as a whole. I feel so fortunate now to be in the position where I write blogs on a page that has been viewed over 30,000 times by people from across the globe – it is just so crazy!!
When I get emails & messages saying that I have genuinely made a difference in somebody’s life – well there is no better feeling. At the end of the day, the blog stats & total-viewer figures are not what is important to me, sure they are nice to see & can be a good way to evaluate the performance of certain posts & topics, but what truly matters to me is making a real difference to people’s lives.
Before I close off today’s blog, I know I say it a lot, but I just want to take a minute to say a massive thank you to each & every one of you that has helped the page along its journey so far. I could not do what I do today without all of the support & advice that I have gotten from so many people – I don’t think that I could thank you all enough!
That’s all for today’s blog, what do you think? How’s your week ahead looking? What sort of blogs would you like to see me write on the page?
Be sure to let me know your answers & thoughts to the above questions, either in the comments below or through our Facebook page!
Thanks for reading & I hope you have a lovely day!
