Back to Basics

I am having the best time blogging, it started off just as a little hobby and has now turned very quickly into something much bigger. When I started blogging I really had no idea what to expect or how to even use twitter! I now have lots of followers and my Instagram is also growing rapidly.  I honestly wasn’t sure if blogging was going to be for me but I am really pleased that I started writing, and I’m pleased that my hard work is paying off.  There is a great community of people out there to connect with and I am now enjoying loads of opportunities. I am now working alongside and I have already reached goals that I thought would have taken me years to accomplish and I am over the moon to be a part of it.  

I do want to try and be as organic as I can as be, and keep on blogging for myself, just to keep my own basic natural flow up to date.  I recently read a post by the Honest mum that was really inspiring, on which she reminded her readers to keep being themselves and how that is enough. I love using blogging as kind of therapy and it feels great to write about whatever I feel like  I am so pleased that people are enjoying reading them. 

If you asked me a year ago if I wanted to write for a living, I honestly would have laughed! I am now advertising myself as a blogger and I have never enjoyed something so much.  The other things I have found myself liking through the life of twitter, have also surprised me. I have always been a creative person, but I didn’t realise just how much until now. I am now passionate about art and all things crafty, especially anything that’s from natural materials or artwork and landscapes of the outdoors.  

I have learnt so much in the last 6 months about writing, taking better pictures, social media knowledge and it has all been great fun. I would encourage anybody and everybody to blog and record whatever your passionate about as it is a really positive creative outlet for me, and not one I plan on stopping any time soon. I am now starting to allow myself to have goals that I never even thought were possible from little old me! 

Whilst Dartmoor is my passion and home, whilst clearing my mind on another beautiful walk, and walking in these outstanding open spaces will always be my real therapy.  I am now going to start opening the doors to more creative things, such as the world of natural art and see where this also takes me.  

This is just my way of trying to open my eyes to all the positive things that are all around us, a way of reminding myself and whoever reads this to value all the natural beautiful things around you and remember to enjoy all the little things.  

Something great is just around the corner.  

So enjoy it.

  1. Its strange how you get to where you are, and its strange how when you make a choice, like being a blogger or starting a website, you wonder why you didn’t do it earlier. I’d wanted a website for a few years before starting mine. I’m not creative, at all. In fact if something doesn’t have a function then I’m nowhere near it!! When I started I hadn’t a clue why I like taking photos and sharing what I see. I now know that I want others to share in the moor, be safe on the moor, have confidence going out, hopefully on a route I’ve posted about. I see loads of sites about The Lakes and Scotland and I wanted to try and fill a gap for Dartmoor, because it deserves it. I think your blog can help that way too

  2. Gorgeous photos, what a lovely part of the country you live in. It’s true something positive is always around the corner, you just need to walk around the corner to find it. #ThatFridayLinky
