It’s been around a year since I started my blog now. I remember coming home from Canada and having so much on my mind that I sat and wrote in my journal for hours. I like having my thoughts written down so that I can reflect and look back later on in life. As I finished writing, I realised how much life had taught me in the past few months and I wanted to share it with other people. I wanted to show that travel isn’t all glitz and glam like I (and most others) made it out to be. But I felt a bit awkward sharing my personal thoughts and feelings to people- not even so much strangers but to my friends and family.
I finally plucked up the courage to share my first blog post (here), about a past trip, on my Facebook page. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it was received and how many complimented my writing skills. It was really encouraging and I became more comfortable sharing some very personal stuff. Fast forward a few months and I’d written a lot more posts and had gained a very small following here on WordPress. I decided I wanted to start taking my blogging a little more seriously and spent most of New Years Eve customising my site and writing new posts (wild). Next I started to think of what I wanted my domain to be and I soon came up with Chloe Vs World. Sometimes I think it’s a bit cringe but at the same time it reflects my life goals very well. Obviously I really love to travel, and I want to visit as many countries as I can before I die. Chloe Vs World is kind of like me taking on the world if you will (told you I was cringe). There’s honestly not really much more to it than that.
Chloe Vs World started out as my online travel journal but recently I’ve started thinking about trying to turn my blog into a business. I know I’ll need a lot of help and I’ll need to change the way I write slightly but I can’t think of anything better being able to write for a living. And even if it doesn’t work out, it will be so special to able to look back on everything I’ve experienced when I’m old.
