Today I answer the many requested topic: why I started my Blog….

Why I started my Blog

It’s a question I get a lot. Whenever I meet someone new, of course I tell them about my Blog. It’s a big part of my life and I’m working on it every single day.

Q: So… why did I start my Blog?

As a little girl I loved to write. I wrote little stories, poems, lyrics… I cut out images I loved and made up stories with them. Played with Barbiedolls and created a whole new imaginary world. In short: I was (and still am) a creative girl.

At primary school I started my own schoolpaper called:  Charissa’s Animal news. Everybody loved it and I loved making it. I’m a huge animal lover, which is the reason why my first paper was about that. At high school I, of course, continued the schoolpaper thing. I’ve had websites, created stories at forums.. Writing has been something I’ve always loved to do.

So when I had a gap year, I jumped. Took a shot and started my own blog.

It wasn’t booming in the beginning and I didn’t have lots of followers on Instagram right away. I was super happy if I reached the 10 likes on one photo! But slowly I started to grow and I’m super happy and proud about how far I’ve come and how much I’ve grown.

Q: Why do you write about the topics you write about?
The reason why I write about Fashion, Lifestyle and Travel, is because those things play a huge part in my life. I’ve always loved to wear things that weren’t super usual or “easy”. I’m always moving, always on the go and seeking for adventure and new places. So far the travel part. Lifestyle.. well, a lot of things can be called lifestyle. Such as sports, food, but also tips, things that go through my mind or even beauty. Basically, my blog is just one big online diary. My own piece of internet where I can share my stories and creativity.

Q: Are you blogging full time?
I am working on my Blog full time, but I’m also studying Communication 🙂


My advice when you start a blog:

Just write about what you like. About what you do. What you feel and what you want. You are you and that’s what makes you unique. It will be hard to always come up with new content. Sometimes you’ll be super busy, or tired, or you simply don’t know what to write about.

Either write something worth reading, or do something worth writing about

Go writing anyway. Just type and see what comes “out of your fingers”. And if nothing comes: don’t worry. It will. It’s better not to post, then to post something that makes no sense.
