The question of why I started blogging is one I have been asked quite a few times. My response is usually something along the lines of "I started blogging around the age of 12, and the interest grew from that up until where I am now", which is true. I did start my first blog at the age of 12. It was called Specialmoi.blogg.se, and unfortunately it does no longer exist. I guess back then a lot of my friends had blogs, and we created blogs together and it was a way of communicating and creating content that your friends would watch. Maybe it sounds a bit strange if you weren't a part of this blog craze, but that's what initially got me interested in the big world of blogging.
Since then I've had several blogs, one of them being toraaa.blogg.se which I kept for a long, long time. When I got to high school I stopped blogging, not because the interest faded but because I was a bit scared of what people would think. Would they think I was trying to show off? Would they say I'm a joke? I didn't know, so I figured it was better to let the blog fade out to dust. As sad as it sounds, that's unfortunately the way high school works sometimes.
My last year of high school something had changed. I no longer cared about what anyone else thought, I was tired of always feeling like I would be judged, and I decided to create a new blog: Tora North. This blog was completely different from any of my old blogs. This was something I felt I wanted to put time and effort into, and it was something I genuinely loved. This blog has become my creative outlet where I can compile my thoughts, inspirations, outfits, etc. and look back at them whenever I want to. I never started this blog with the intention of growing to infinity and becoming a so called "influencer" (although that would be very nice), but I'm proud of what I've accomplished and I'm happy to see my readers increase every single week. It gives me motivation unlike anything else, and makes me want to perform better than I am right now.
I've gotten to the point where I love this blog, and I truly enjoy creating content that I'm also really proud of. Blogging excites me, and I know that I can be bigger and better if I continue to work hard. I'm excited to see what's to come, and I can't wait to produce even more content in the upcoming months!
This post became much longer than I had planned for, but since some of you are curious I hope this makes sense! Thanks so much for following my blog, without all you guys that are checking in every single day I wouldn't have the same motivation that I do today. I hope you're as excited as I am to see what is to come! x
