If you are thinking about starting a blog, you totally should! I have been blogging consistently for a year now and I love it. Personally, for me blogging is my creative outlet, I get to create content and tell my story in fact, any story I want.
If you don’t know my day job is I’m a casting director at Good Faith Casting in Arizona and LA. A casting director’s job is to find the right talent for auditions and present the best actors to the director or client. What most people don’t know is that casting directors don’t get the final say on who should be cast. While I love casting I don’t get to make those creative decisions and that was a big reason why I wanted to create my own blog.
Like I said blogging became my creative outlet. It was something that I could do and control, yes I know I’m totally a control freak and probably why I could never be an actor! Blogging is more than taking pretty photos, it’s about telling a story. That story can be used to help others or just a place to vent.
Also blogging is a great way to meet new people and make new friendships. I think we can all agree as an adult making friends is so hard so it’s nice that the blogging community has been really welcoming to me.
Finally, the best part of blogging is you can blog ANYWHERE. Not many jobs or hobbies allow this kind of flexibility. I have had some great collaborations while I travel too. I am able to pitch to companies all across the US, which is really exciting.
Blogging is what you make of it. If you put in the work you can really grow your blog fast or it can be the escape people are looking for. Again if you have ever thought of starting a blog or youtube channel, just start! I really wish I had started sooner, not only is it fun but you make friends and have a creative outlet.
