Thank you so much for reading my very first blog post on Bondi to Basic.
I thought my very first blog post should be an explanation about why I started this website and what I want to achieve with it.
WHY DID I START BONDI TO BASIC?
I have had 2 blogs before. Both I feel I started for the wrong reasons. Yes, I love writing and being creative, but I thought I could make a successful blog in a few months and make money out of it.
I did not really start both of the blogs for the love of blogging, but more with the idea of being a success and cashing in with them. I don’t think those are the right reason to start a blog or really any website.
Of course, I failed miserably because I set unrealistic targets for myself, became unmotivated, stressed and eventually decided to close both of my blogs down.
This time I want to blog for me.
I miss being creative, I miss writing, I miss being busy, I miss waking up with a ton of cool blog ideas, I miss creating cool photos and graphics.
I also just got my heart badly broken, and I need to be busy atm.
I do not want to go and party my ass of (cause I am not that type of girl) So VOILA here we are… back to blogging.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT
There are a few things that make me happy, the main thing is traveling. So I will write a lot about travel. Where I have been, where I want to go, How I do it etc.
I will also blog about general lifestyle things, food, fashion, blogging tips and tricks I pick up along the way, some fashion stuff, some make-up stuff, money things, about my struggles with IBS and much much more.
I guess you can say BTB will be a lifestyle blog.
I can’t promise that I will upload 2-3 times a week. I think I will upload when I have something to say or feel the need to write something.
I have a lot of posts in my head that I can write for you, but as I am using this as an outlet, I don’t know when I will have them ready for you. I will also only post blogs when I feel like they are of good quality. Just because this is a small blog (I’m not expecting huge numbers) I want to have good quality content.
I want to make sure I don’t get sucked up in the numbers game again.
So I won’t be checking to see if someone has even looked at my site yet. If not, then that’s ok, I have distracted myself by writing this. If one person reads my blog YAY! if more than that, I am just as happy.
I won’t be making a Facebook page or an Instagram account for BTB.
I don’t think you guys would be interested in it, and I would just make me sad if no one follows it (besides my family who would probably feel the need to follow me to make me happy)
Maybe down the road, I do want to make some social media accounts, then I will link them below. For now, I will just have a Pinterest + a Twitter, cause I need some form of social media (Part of blogging I guess).
If someone does read this: If you have any tips or tricks you would like to tell me, or have any encouragement, advice or just want to say HI, please leave a comment underneath or simply fill in the contact form below.
I will make sure to respond.
