A "Real" Blogger

Since I began the process of applying to the program to teach in Spain, I have known that I wanted to start a blog to document my experiences. For months I read other blogs daily, made notes of features that I liked and disliked, and thought of possible posts that I would like to share.

At first, blogging seemed sooo easy--just pick a pretty background and write about whatever you like. Although I have to admit that Blogger has been very easy to use (especially for someone whose use of the computer extends to skype, music, and the internet), I've learned that blogging is so much more than I thought it was. While you have all of these great ideas for blog posts, things get more difficult when you have to decide whether you want to write long, thoughtful posts, or short, informative or even funny posts. Then once you know what type of posts you want to write, it's amazing how hard it is to actually continue to post regularly.

 That being said, after all the trials and tribulations, I now feel like I am officially a blogger. I have been featured on another blog, made some "blogger friends," and have been welcomed as a member of 20 Something Bloggers --an international group of ummm...bloggers in their twenties ;)
For all of you bloggers out there, when did you start to feel like you were a real blogger?


  1. I started blogging on livejournal years and years ago (like ten years ago) so it's hard for me to remember not feeling like a blogger. I know what you mean about it being more difficult than expected simply because of having to keep up with it regularly. I think that can be applied to a lot of things, including having children, haha. Babysitting a kid isn't so hard, but being a parent doesn't stop for the rest of your life, and that's a lot more difficult, heh.

    But, anyhow. Back to your original question.... I suppose what makes me feel like a real blogger is that even though posting regularly can be difficult, the idea of not doing it rarely comes up It's what I want to be doing.

  2. Thanks for your comment Faith! I think once I get to Spain and I have all of my adventures and escapades to share with everyone, I'll be at the point where posting becomes part of my normal routine.


Thanks for checking out my blog!! Feel free to leave me your likes, dislikes, advice, opinions, or anything you feel like sharing!
