History of Blogging {Blogtember Challenge}

September 14th Prompt: When did you start blogging, and why?

Oh boy. Where do I even begin with this one? I starting blogging when I was 15... 12 years ago. Wow. That was a good 'ol Xanga (come on... you know you had one too!). It was full of awesomeness surveys and other teenage related stuff (and no, I will NOT share it. In fact, I went through great lengths to get that thing off the Internet for good! ;-) )

Real blogging though? I started on January 1st, 2012 as a challenge for myself. I blogged EVERY SINGLE DAY that year, even if it was just a hey, what's up? post. (That year, I blogged at Always Write 2012). The year was a success, but I HATED blogging every day. I worked a LOT that year (and had an hour commute each way), so it felt like a chore. I didn't want that.

So on January 1st, 2013, I started this blog with the goal of blogging a few times each week. I think it's been successful, and I love my little piece of blogland!

As for the second question, I started blogging to get stuff off my mind. It's cliché, but there's a lot going on in this brain of mine. I needed an outlet. I also LOVE to write, so it's a win-win.

How long have YOU been blogging?
Why did YOU start?
