Why Blogging? – Why I became a blogger..

I realize I should have written this post some time ago and I realized only now it made sense to me. I have been working hard to make some changes around here and it shows (or at least I HOPE it does). I finally got a logo, the most perfect logo to represent me! 

I have always written, it has always been a passion of mine. I’ve wanted to be a writer since the first career day we ever had back in school, no seriously since I was a kid. Books have always fascinated me. For years I carried around journals and scribbled down thoughts. As a kid I was a bit of a loner, with a sick mom and OCD, I preferred to be alone.

Books gave me an escape I never knew. When I got older I started writing on my laptop, in my phone, anywhere I could to get my thoughts out onto paper. 

Why the name JasmineLily? 

JasmineLily came to me as my best friend and I were thinking of names. My name is Jasmine which is a beautiful flower and Lily is the name of another gorgeous flower (one I love). Lily was supposed to be the name of my future daughter (maybe one day) and so I thought I would name my blog that. Life.Independence.Love.Youth are all things that speak to me. 

It took me a very long time to get here, looking back now I am not sure why. Self-doubt? Insecurities? Scared? Absolutely. I second guess everything, not to mention the internet can be a scary place. I finally said, let’s do this! What have I got to lose? 

I’ve only been blogging for a couple of months but boy am I glad I started.. I have learned so much already and I have a new found appreciation for bloggers (it really is a lot of work, BUT the good kind)..

So that’s it, that’s the story of how JasmineLily got started!

Thank you for tagging along on my journey..
