Since I dove back into blogging as of this year after a year hiatus, I’ve been asked by quite a few people why I have decided to run so many different blogs, instead of consolidating everything onto one platform like I did previous.
I run a curation + recipe blog for Hello Kitty food at EatHelloKitty.com along with a Japanese and Korean beauty blog where I focus on reviewing cosplay wigs and cute cosmetics at KawaiiBeautyReview.com and I’m building an online review and store coming soon at NerdyMerch.com Not only that but I contribute to various publications since by trade I am a chef and food writer.
Honestly, as much as I love being able to do what I love for a living, and yes it sucks having to start all over again after my old blog was doxed, I sincerely enjoy entertaining and contributing some sort of value to someone’s life whether it’s regarding a serious topic or something fun.
I love building my own websites and each one of them is an outlet for me on parts of my personality. Sure, from time to time I will be updating on this platform on my other projects since it’s common sense to do so, but I enjoy the organization niche blogging has allowed me. If someone is only interested in my advice on cosmetics, they can visit Kawaii Beauty Review. If they’re only interested in the billions of t-shirts or geek-life merch I come across, they’ll be able to find more info on Nerdy Merch etc.
If for some reason somebody is in need of a little heartfelt advice or curious about another perspective regarding a topic they’re currently invested in, then you can hang out here. Blogging has been a huge part of my life for the past 10 years and writing in general has been a huge part of my personality since I was a kid. It’s always been a positive outlet for me.
When people consider blogging as a career because they’re hyper-focused on generating income, I guarantee you’ll end up failing. Do it because it’s therapeutic for you. If you happen to profit fiscally from it, then that is fantastic as I sincerely believe each and every one of us deserves the opportunity to do what we love for a living instead of sacrificing our limited time for a limited amount of money.
So, I hope that answers some of your questions. I blog so much because I love to, not because I have to and if blogging is something you’ve always wanted to do, I encourage you to go for it and enjoy your own company. Your blog is like your virtual home on the internet.
