As I look deeper into all things blogging I have come across terms such as ‘Your dream reader’ or ‘Your blogging voice’. Reading these made me wonder if I actually have a blogging voice, something that is unique to me. It also made me wonder who my dream reader was. For a while I didn’t know, I felt like maybe I didn’t have a blogging voice or a dream reader and it made me feel like these two things are something I should have had before I started blogging. Something that I started off with as a goal and a reason why I blog. I hadn’t though and for a while I was left feeling a bit lost.
I don’t have any real training in different subjects, I can’t offer expert advice on certain topics. Sure I am passionate about things but my knowledge didn’t come from a university degree. While I was thinking about this I remembered how I like to watch daily vloggers on YouTube. It’s probably the nosey side of me but I enjoy watching and seeing what people get up to on a day to day basis. To be able to see the things they do for enjoyment and get a small look into their personal life. It made me realise that while I don’t have a degree or a set topic in mind what I do have to offer is myself. Just as I enjoy watching the daily vloggers I also enjoy writing about day to day things. Things that I like, dislike and things that I’m going through. I am me and that in itself is my blogging voice. I like a wide range of things and because of that my blog will cover a wide range of topics. It’s who I am as a person and that is also what I’m sharing.
I never started this blog with a set goal in mind of who I wanted to read it. I didn’t start out with wanting a set celebrity or brand to read what I had to say. I just wanted to share things with people that I hoped would be interested in reading about me and the things I get up to. To be able to connect with people and get some support and feedback. It makes me happy that I’m able to do this and that there actually are people out there that are interested in reading about me. It is those people that are my dream readers. People who like myself enjoy reading about other people and their lives.
After a while I realised I did have a blogging voice and a dream reader and I am happy and content with what they are.
