Blogs Have Writing Styles?! (aka I have an existential crisis)

Hi everyone!

A second before writing this post, I was reading Fadwa’s post on her favourite blogs and was suddenly struck by something. Blogs really have a writing style. Thinking about it… well, duh, of course they do.

If you’ve read many of my posts, or especially if you used to follow my blog, you’ve probably noticed that my blogging style is either quite informative or very chatty and to be honest I’m not in love with it?! If you’ve ever seen how I write when I write for the sake of writing (e.g. creative writing) then you wouldn’t think it was the same person at all.

When I write for the sake of writing or to tell a story, or even when writing poems, I favour more “flowery” language. I like to use imagery and create a world in my writing in which things seem a bit more abstract and magical. Think The Night Circus (except not half as good).

But could I translate that into a writing style for my blog? Probably not exactly, it would be silly. A blog isn’t a magical realism story. A piece of paper is just of a piece of paper, after all… but perhaps I could adapt it? Find a happy medium which I prefer to my current writing style?!

I’ve been blogging for a couple of years now and I started when I was only 14, so I’ve kind of been stuck writing very similarly to how I did then, and well, I’m almost 17 and I don’t write or talk the way I did when I was 14, so maybe it’s time to change how I blog as well.

Is it too early for an existential crisis? Maybe 🙂

Thanks for supporting me thus far and if you’re new to my blog… I hope you’ll stick with me a little bit longer.

Lots of love,

Keira x.

  1. I get it. I blog how I think. Sometimes it comes out nice and poetic; other times words are vomited across my screen. In all honesty I prefer the chatty blogs that I follow, as they are like sitting down with a friend. Just wrote as you are. It may change as you age, but you’ll still be you.
