Celebrating Bloggers Blog Hop

Today I’m taking part in Terri Giuliano Long’s Blog Hop to celebrate bloggers and blogging πŸ™‚ Check out who else is participating here πŸ™‚


So why do I blog?

I’ve been mulling this question over for a few days now, and there is no direct answer. So, as I’m a lover of lists, a list it will have to be πŸ˜‰

1. Because I love the community aspect of it. I’ve loved the friendships and connections I’ve made through my blog.

2. To develop, practice and hone my writing skills. This has been really good practice and I feel that I’ve gained so much from the comments I receive when I share my work.

3. To develop my voice. This has been incredibly useful and has boosted my confidence in myself.

4. To learn. I have learnt so much from the other writers I follow πŸ™‚

5. To share what I’ve learnt. I love sharing tips and info. I’m very much a people person and I love to help others. If I manage to inspire just one person every so often, I’ll die a happy bunny πŸ™‚


So now, this is my opportunity to say…..

Seriously, to all my followers, people who like my blog, people who comment, Tweet my posts, pass them on etc. You guys are amazing, each and every one of you. I love you loads ok, never forget that, and my life wouldn’t be the same without you, I’d probably get more writing done, but stuff that πŸ˜‰

And talking about loving the whole blogging community, the winner of a PDF copy of The Emotion Thesaurus is……Mandy Eve Barnett CONGRATULATIONS honey!

So tell me…..why do you blog?

  1. Lovely post, made me smile. I think the thing I love about blogging regularly is that makes you actually sit down and write something regularly! Even if it’s just a blog post, it’s still writing.

    I love Terri Giuliano Long – In Leah’s Wake is one of my favourite books this year! How did you find out about this, Vikki? I’d like to join in next time πŸ™‚ x


  2. Great post Vikki.

    Thank you for taking part in the event and joining the celebration of bloggers.

    I’ve come across so many brilliant blogs since I started blogging in 2010. It never gets tiring finding more fab blogs πŸ™‚

  4. Brilliant post, Vikki. I love the way blogging and reading other’s blogs leads to so many writing opportunities – comps, tips, inspiration etc! Everyone’s so friendly too πŸ™‚


  5. I love the sense of community (There’s a reason why I call everyone my WordPress Friends) and it’s a chance for me to share my writing with strangers who actually may want to read what I write. It boggles my mind that someone will take the few minutes out of their day to read my post.

    I honestly don’t know what I’d do without WP.


  6. Thank you so much for taking part in Celebrating Bloggers! I loved your post and the reasons you gave for blogging, particularly about finding your voice. I think that’s so important and I’m working on opening up my blog more so people can connect with me and the things that matter to me! Thanks again!

    My best,
