Why I Love Blogging

5/25/2013 04:42:00 pm

Manchmal bekomme ich von Freunden die Frage gestellt, warum ich eigentlich blogge, da ich soviel Zeit dafür aufwende (momentan etwa zwei Stunden am Tag) und doch nichts dabei rauskommt, so richtig. Tja, eine gute Frage. Warum liebe ich das bloggen und stopfe meine Freizeit damit voll?

Sometimes, I get asked by friends why I actually blog as I spend a lot of time for it (at the moment, about two hours a day) and at the end of the day, I wouldn't get anything out of it. Well, good question. Why do I love blogging and spend my free time doing it?



1. Die Gemeinschaft. Jeder Blogger ist Teil einer großen, herzlichen Gemeinschaft, bei der es natürlich auch Konkurrenz, aber vor allem Freundschaft gibt. Liebe Kommentare durchzulesen zaubert mir immer ein Lächeln aufs Gesicht, und ich finde es toll, so vernetzt zu sein und Leute aus vielen anderen Ländern zu kennen!



1. The community. Every blogger is part of a large, friendly community that of course also has competition within it, but mainly friendship. Reading all your cute comments makes me smile every time without fail, and I think it's great so be so networked and know people from all over the world!



2. Anregung. Wenn ich weiß, dass ich ein Projekt bloggen kann, nehme wahrscheinlich ich mehr Mühe auf mich, z. Bsp. bei DIYs, die sonst nicht entstanden wären aus mangelnder Motivation, sie anzufangen, oder bei Outfits, bei denen ich mir ein paar Minuten mehr nehme, um sie zusammenzustellen und nicht nur auf bewährte Kombis zurückgreife. Kurz: es macht mein persönliches Leben interessanter!



2. Encouragement. When I know that I can blog about a certain project I'm likely to put more effort into it, for example with DIYs that wouldn't otherwise have been realised due to lack of motivation, or with outfits with which I take some more minutes in the morning to put them together and not just rely on tried and tested combinations. In short: it makes my personal life more interesting! 



3. Inspiration. Wie hier schon erwähnt, sind Blogs für mich die beste Inspiration überhaupt, sei es Kleidung, Rezepte, DIYs etc. Durch Kommentare von anderen Bloggern entdeckt man immer wieder neue Blogs, die man sonst verpasst hätte!



3. Inspiration. As mentioned here before, blogs are the best inspiration for me ever, whether it's outfits, recipes, DIYs etc. Through comments from other bloggers I always discover new blogs that I would have otherwise missed!



4. Fotografie. Ohne das bloggen würde ich sehr wahrscheinlich weniger Fotos machen von all dem Unsinn, den ich so treibe. Ich freue mich über die vielen Fotos des täglichen Lebens, die ich in 40 Jahren sicher sehr schätzen werde!



4. Photography. Without blogging, I would surely take way less pictures of all the nonsense I'm doing all the time. I'm really happy about all these photos of daily life and I'm sure I'll appreciate them in 40 years time!

What are your reasons to blog?

  11. Wunderbare Gründe für einen wunderbaren Blog :)
    Ich finde deinen Blog ganz besonders, weil er meiner Meinung nach immernoch bodenständig und echt ist. Viele andere Blogs, die ich schon so lange wie deinern verfolge, sind zwar mit der Zeit professioneller geworden was Layout und Fotos und all diese technischen Feinheiten angeht, aber meiner Meinung nach fängt dann einfach die Persönlichkeit an zu leiden. Bei deinem Blog sieht man den Mensch und die Persönlichkeit dahinter und hat nicht das Gefühl einen Vogueabklatsch zu lesen, der nur bekannt werden will indem er jeden noch so unmöglichen Trend mitmacht und an nichts Kritik übt.
    Weiterso und ich hoffe, dass du noch lange Freunde am bloggen haben wirst und uns allen damit eine Freude bereitest !

    Liebste Grüße

  15. What a great post! I totally agree with all of your reasons. I love the exchange of ideas blogging provides. I like the idea that I somehow contribute something by adding my perspective, while learning so much from others. I'm glad you take the time to blog :-)

  16. Totally agree! Viele Dinge wie fotografieren, überlegen was man anzieht, bastel ideen... machen einfach dadurch viel mehr Spaß und Freude dass man sie teilt! Und einige blogs (zum beispiel deiner) machen auch einfach gute Laune :)

  25. Ein schöner Post!
    Aber ich finde solche Fragen auch immer ein klein wenig doof. Ich meine, wie viel Hobbies gibt es denn, wo am Ende genauso wenig dabei rauskommt wie beim Bloggen? ^^ Wenn man bloggt bereichert es einen doch letztlich doch viel mehr als manch andere Freizeitbeschäftigung. ;)

    Joa, hätte ich das mal mit dem Wetter gewusst..
    Aber danke für das liebe Lob zu den Fotos.
