15 Blogger’s share thier Motivation.

I asked other bloggers to share their reason behind creating their blogs and how they get motivated. I posted on Twitter about a Motivational post I wanted to write to show people that they can accomplish what they want and follow their dreams. I wasn’t expecting the massive response I’ve gotten!

Motivate

For me, I created my blog as a way to share my experiences with other people, I don’t have a great social life and I struggle to meet new people with my blog I am able to connect with more people and grow confidence in my writing. I also wanted to inspire and motivate other people to follow their dreams. One of my biggest motivations is that I have a lot of people to prove wrong, so many people have doubted me and my writing and I plan to show them that I can do it.

“The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” ― Confucius, Confucius: The Analects

I love this quote because it show’s that everything is possible and that sometime’s all those small stones (tasks) can really add up and amount to something bigger.

“I started blogging because I wanted to educate people on mental health and wellness. The stigma surrounding this topic is insane. It’s such a huge part of our lives and affects every single person on a daily basis, regardless of the severity. My reason for blogging is really what motivates me to do it every day. So many people struggle with mental health and being healthy. If one of my posts can help them in their journey than I’m satisfied. My favorite quote has always and will forever be “throw me to the wolves and I will return leading the pack.” I’m not entirely sure why it’s my favorite because I don’t see myself as a take-charge leader, but every time I read it, it evokes such strong feelings of motivation and drives in myself.”

Ami from Undercover Superhero said:

“I started my blog because my family kept telling me that I have a story to share. At first, I wasn’t keen however when I began writing, I just couldn’t stop! My reason to continue blogging is in the hope to raise awareness and let people know they’re not alone.
 In a way, I have a selfish and selfless reason that motivates me to blog – finding out about myself. Before blogging, I didn’t really know what made me tick but being able, to be honest, in my writing, showing my personality, it taught me to actually like who I am. My favourite quote is, “You’re a fighter. Look at everything you’ve overcome. Don’t give up now.” – Olivia Benson. This quote has been my motto for the past 6 months and it is one that I can relate to massively. We are all fighters. We all overcome obstacles in our lives, big or small. We have to keep going, sometimes we don’t know where we’re heading but the journey is the best part!”

Vanessa from the Wellbeing blogger said:

“I started my blog as a way to reconnect; first with myself and then with others through my writing. So, I think I have two different motives to blog. One is more internal; the other is more external. Blogging is a way to satisfy my own need of understanding my feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, but I also blog to connect with others and to feel part of a community in which I feel good in. I think being a “blogger” grants me the freedom I need to be myself and it also allows me to understand life better because other bloggers feel safe to share their own stories and experiences with me. A quote that inspires me would be one attributed to Audrey Hepburn: “Anyone who does not believe in miracles is not a realist” (Audrey Hepburn).”

Hannah from Pages, Places, and Plates said:

“The idea of my blog came to me one morning whilst I was writing for CEX, a film, and game company that I write reviews for. I was thinking about how much I love to write and review and it just sort of clicked – why not start a blog? Writing has always been a passion of mine and it’s something I want to do in the future full-time, so it made sense to start building those foundations now. I chose to review four things that I love – books, food and drink places, days out, and international travel, and it’s given even more of a reason to take part in those activities which is great! Generally, I’m quite good at staying motivated with blogging as I love the interactions I get to have with others. There’s something quite addictive about liking and commenting! I’ve set myself a schedule for my posts so I’m motivated to hit those as I know if I don’t I’ll be letting people down. I think having a variety on my blog really helps as well – I’m one of those people that gets bored of doing the same thing over and over again so I know I’ve got lots of different focuses I can work on and switch between with my blog. To motivate myself to actually write a post I find the most useful thing is to set up my ‘blogging zone’. This is the office/studio in our house, which at the moment comprises of a desk, an easel, and lots of nice, empty space. Before writing I set my laptop and notes up, light some uplifting candles and incense, and grab myself a cup of tea or coffee – the phone stays out of the room and the door is firmly closed! I’m always so much more productive when I do this first, so I’d recommend getting a similar ritual set up for anyone that struggles to get that initial motivation.M y absolute favourite quote is by Confucius – “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” The reason I love this particular quote is that not only does it motivate but it also takes into account that sometimes you don’t want to go full-throttle into something and that’s okay. Self-care and work-life balance are so important to me so this quote reminds me that I’m still moving forward even when I’m struggling – I just need to do something small to keep it going.”

Maxin from Maxin’s Blog said:

“People are very different when it comes to communication. Some are expressing themselves with talking, others with writing and probably there are as well quite a few introverted listeners. Doesn’t matter what kind of communication you have in your nature as long as you can express what you feel. I found myself in writing. For a long time, I didn’t really know how to share my thoughts. I realized that all my feelings and words in my head don’t sound exactly the same when I talk. My love for sharing experiences and advice to others made me start writing my blog. I wrote the first article about pregnancy and birth of my daughter Michelle and I finally felt peace in mind. The quiet moments I spend working on my blog are a healing process for my soul. It is like meditation for me and all the great responses I get are a driving force to keep me writing even more. If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. And that’s what life is about, to enjoy every moment and create an environment that makes you happy.”

Manda from Moon Beauty Social said:

“I began my blog for a few reasons, first, I want to help people learn to tune into their spirituality, without fear or holding back.  Next, I wanted to create awareness for my upcoming twitch channel, “Manda Mystic Gaming” a channel that will focus on spiritual self-care it focuses on raising money to help animal sanctuaries. What drives me to blog is my passion for writing.  I was 12 years old taking my first writing class which involved poetry writing and journaling.  I’m not kidding when I say it really fueled my life as a teenager.  Before the world of iPads and on the go mobile journaling I was the girl who owned every journal under the sun!!   I wrote stories in 5 subject notebooks, I would typewrite.  It’s the gift of being able to heal someone from heartache, connect with their spirituality, walk along the imaginative world of fiction, and spark emotion giving out hope to those who live in the dark.  That my dear is what motivates me to blog. “Life is the canvas we paint our dreams on” It’s a quote that came to me a few years ago and I have used it ever since.  Life is like art literally we are the hands that move the situations we go through life.  We can use this to heal from experiences and transform our life into something beautiful, much like an artist turns an empty slate of paper or canvas into something exquisite!”

Hannah from Hannah Hope said:

“I started my blog as I wanted an outlet to write and express myself. I wanted to make a difference. To reach out and support others. Give them hope. I wanted to raise awareness of disability and issues relating to it as well as talking about life issues in general. The feeling that hopefully, I am making a very small difference. Challenging people’s perceptions. My determination to succeed. Reaching out to more people to help them understand and be more accepting of disability. ‘The harder you work for something, the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it.'”

Kelly from The Kelly Diane Report said:

“I started my blog because I wanted my own space to be creative and write about anything and everything. Because it was mine, it meant that I could choose any topic I liked to write about. I get motivated by the amazing people in the blogging community. I read so many wonderful, well-written blogs that I aspire to
Quote, that motivates me – don’t wait for an opportunity, create it! “

Nick from Creative Motion Picture said:

“I began writing when I was 15 years old. I began to get comfortable with expressing myself through a pen and paper and started to like that side of the bargain. Every day I wrote down my short term goals and long term goals to remain focused on keeping my priorities in order to become successful. The more I wrote the more I enjoyed it each and every day. I eventually decided to challenge myself and began to write fictional short stories and sports articles about the everyday drama of what goes on in the sports world. Once I created my own blog, I wrote more stories and now in 2019 I’ve taken writing and blogging very seriously and want to continue to grow from here on out. My motivation is short and simple. I love what I do! For a while, I’ve had so many unpublished writings with no way of sharing them with the world. I wanted to find a way for people to read my work and become inspired by them. So I asked one of my friends who write as well and he suggested me to create my own blog page to publish all of my writings. So that’s what I did. I created a blogspot account where I published short stories and sports articles for people to read. I was satisfied with the fact that I was finally introducing myself to the world, but I still felt like I could do better and that I needed a different opportunity. After a couple months, I left blogspot and I created my two  Wordpress websites “Sports Takes” and “Creative Motion”. Since I began on WordPress I believe my name has slowly grown from there on. Blogspot was a great start for me, but WordPress really helped me engage with other bloggers and has helped me even collaborate with a couple of them as well. Now that I can say that I have a pretty good “fan base”, my goal now is to continue to satisfy them with stories that can inspire and motivate each and every one of them. I’m very happy that I’ve taken blogging very seriously. I hope to one day make an investment off of my stories and maybe help others who want to blog as well. If I had any advice for the bloggers who are just now beginning, I would advise them to keep it going and don’t give up. Their first published story may not have as many views as they would like, but I guarantee if they continue to put forth the effort and continue to do what they love, then they will become recognized by many and loved for the work that they do. My favorite quote comes from one of my favorite athletes of all time Michael Jordan. Jordan says “I’ve failed over and over again, and that’s why I succeeded.” The quote really speaks to me because I’ve had stories that may have not been as good as the other, but I humbled myself many times and put effort into creating the best writings that I possibly could and I’m happy that I continue to work hard at what I do. I hope this message can motivate any bloggers out there. I hope that if they continue to do what they love, then it will all work out in the long run!”

Simon from Not You Mate said:

“I started my Blog in August 2018 – originally it was intended to mainly cover the Shows that I host and present. I also do ‘Show and Tells’ in Schools and Nurseries with our guinea pigs. Well, the guinea pig photos proved incredibly popular, so I now make sure I include lots of update on them. We have a core of 7 adults, and we went to 22 after 4 sets of babies were born in January – we are now at 11, after 4 born this week. The big shows I do (in front of crowds of hundreds) include – Talent Shows, Dog Shows and also outdoor Cinema Shows – a highlight of that was a 90 min ‘warm-up’……while we waited for it to get dark! These are great fun and I love the interaction with people – you simply never know what you get next, it’s totally thinking on your feet… I absolutely love it. I also started my blog as a means to be creative – although it’s not in the league of most of the others I have seen – which are amazing !! I like to develop mine slowly, picking up Blog Followers as I go – I’m at 231 now, stunned at that after 7 months). It’s great to create and keep a record of both the Shows I host and also the guinea pigs. I direct all ‘perspective’ buyers of my surplus guinea pigs to my blog – so they can see what I have etc. I really enjoy the feedback and opinions of the ‘blog readers’ – I have tapped into many past memories that people have shared – that is lovely.

A quote that motivates me: None really. But let’s just say that life does go by really quickly, and you need to make the most of all the opportunities presented to you. We regret more on what we don’t do than what we do try!”

Angell from lifeofanangell said:

“I started my blog as a “secret” online diary. It wasn’t until I was strongly encouraged by my friends and boss that I decided to make it “official” and share it publicly. My students are a huge motivation. It’s a great reference point that I don’t just teach writing, but I AM a writer. My blog allows them to see that not all writing has to be in the traditional academic sense. Writing can be fun and witty and entertaining while still sending a message!  “Silly girl, your different was your beautiful all along” ~Atticus”

“Blogging is something I have been doing on and off for years but I really decided to now take it seriously because I really enjoy it. It gives me a creative outlet to express myself and cover topics that in day to day life I wouldn’t be able to express. When my posts help people and I get responses where people have gained something from my blog it makes me feel like I have achieved something and that my writing isn’t just being ignored. Sometimes as a blogger you can feel like your content isn’t being noticed and you wonder if it’s worth still putting it out there, but, even if one person is helped or inspired by my content that’s motivation enough.
Quote: To be honest, I don’t think there is only one, but one quote I do really like is ‘progress, not perfection’ we always strive to do things so perfectly (I know this can be my downfall sometimes) but this can hinder progress and also cause more stress for you. If you try to always be perfect how can you ever grow, learn and be better?”

Jerry from All In Blog said:

“I started blogging as a way to share some things that I felt I could offer other people.  I also started blogging as a way to open up about my life and some of the things I have gone through to better connect with others similar to me. I am motivated to blog by the desire to keep sharing things as I learn them.  I really want new bloggers to feel comfortable and teach them as much as I can.  The community of bloggers is amazing and I love being able to share with so many people. The quote that motivates me right now is: “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great” – Rich Froning”

Vikki from LeaBellaBlog’s said:

“I started my blog so I could share my love for travel with the world. I also wanted to create something that I could be proud of and responsible for. A blog seemed to be the best option for me as I love writing, so what’s a better way than to write about my love for travel! Two in one.
Other bloggers motivate me on twitter a lot. It’s really good to see how many people are firing out amazing blog posts and content week after week; and I want to be a part of that. I want to share my travel tips and experiences with other people who may find my blog posts informative and helpful, and if my blog reaches just one single person and it helps them in some way, then I’ve achieved what I set out for.
 “You are here for a good time, not a long time”. This is why I travel so much.”

  1. It was really nice to participate! Your post turned out amazingly cool, it’s nice to read so many different answers and reasons behind blogging. It’s nice to know your ‘why’ too!! I personally can relate to your reason about social life. I can count one person in my circle of friends for now IRL. That was also why I started blogging anyway too, to find my ‘tribe’. It’s really amazing to get the chance to ‘meet’ people like you in the blogging community! Thanks for your hard work!
