I saw a lot of people over on twitter talking about the #iBlogBecause campaign and it made me want to write my own. I did write an introductory post saying why I was starting my blog, way back when I first started but I’ve gained quite a few new followers since then, so this will be a great post for the new folks around here!


So that’s it, thats why I blog! What do you love about blogging?

  1. I love this 🙂 keep it up. Your blogposts are interesting to read 🙂 I blog because i want to inspire others to be creative as well as a way to show my own illustration. I love writing and really enjoy artist features to help promote other inspiring creatives.

    Great post! Totally agree with all your points and as for the Journalism course, if it’s something you want to do, go for it! I’ve just finished my Graphic Design HND too, waiting to do my top up year now! Love your work (had a little peek!)

    Thank you! I’m definitely going to try for it, it’ll probably have to be next year now but gives me more time to create more content 🙂 ooo nice, where abouts are you doing your top up? I considered one but didn’t feel I’d be good enough after the comments my tutor made. And thanks! 🙂 I love your designs, they’re elegant and simplistic 🙂

  12. I loved reading this post, it reminds of when I started a few years back with another blog. I think the most important part of blogging is enjoying it and sometimes a post seems not to have a big effect on others but it can distract someone’s mind from their usual problems and that is already worth it 🙂

    Well said 🙂 if I can just help one person with what I write (no matter what way) then I’ll be happy 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! I’m a twenty-five-year-old digital media graduate with a passion for writing and a desire to change the way we view mental health and autism. I’ve owned jademarie.co.uk for nearly two years now, and its slowly changed from a place where I would brain dump whatever was going through my head that day, into a place where people can come for help, advice and hopefully a bit of a laugh. I do occasionally come out with a witty sentence or two. Mostly by accident.
