Hey guys, how are y’all this Wednesday?
I love Wednesdays for a very weird reason. It’s the middle of the week, so I know that the end is only two days away. So if I get depressed about how far away Friday is, I can remind myself that just two days ago it was Monday, and the next two days will past just as fast.
That’s not strange, okay?
You might’ve read the title and assumed this was going to be a very, deep emotional post where I talk about blogging has helped me discover my true self and all that jazz people love to talk about nowadays. I’m sorry if you were looking forward to that, because that is not what’s happening.
What I mean by ‘How Blogging Has Changed My Life’ is literally how blogging has changed my life. Like, things that I do differently in my usual life after I started blogging. Ab samjha (understood now)?
1. Everything is a blog idea.
This is so accurate. Nowadays, whenever I’m doing anything I enjoy, I always try to figure out how to turn into a post. Seriously, ever since I started this blog, I’ve started to delve into all my happy moments and find a way to turn them into writing. Now don’t misunderstand me and think that this means I don’t really take in what’s happening and instead always focus on my blog. It’s actually kind of the opposite. For example, if I see a puppy somewhere, I will probably gush over its cuteness and then think of how I could put my love for dogs into a post, whereas, a few months ago, I would’ve just done the gushing and walked away. It’s like I can make everything I like eternal by putting it on here.
2. Not letting people eat their food until I take pictures of it.
Haha, just ask my friends and family if you want confirmation for this one. I love food-tography anyway (and people say I’m great at it hehe 🙂 ), and since I do food reviews here (one coming up on Saturday!), I always want to make sure I have photos of the food I’m reviewing. What this means is that whoever I’m dining with cannot touch their food until I have a digital version of it on my phone. So many times I have yelled or completely freaked out when someone was going to take a bite out of their meal, because hello, dishes missing one bite don’t look pretty. Your starvation can wait. No I’m kidding 🙂 .
Lol not really.
3. Reading more critically.
I also do book reviews, if you didn’t already know (find them all here 🙂 ). That has really changed the way I read books. Now, before I starting reviewing books and watching reviewers on BookTube, I was one of these readers who liked everything. I mean, I never really used to have a problem with a book, and that has changed for the better now. By ‘critical’ I don’t mean that I am looking for faults to point out in books, it means that I pay much more attention to small things that stood out to me, whether positive or negative. I pay attention to things like how sensitive issues were represented, how well characters were developed, how I would have wanted the story to end, how LGBTQ characters were portrayed, and a bunch of other stuff. I really delve deep into the book which has made a much more mature reader, and writer.
I’m sure there was more to put in this post, but, I can’t remember.
Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for a delicious recipe coming up on Friday!
