Why I Blog...

So, I thought that today I'd write a post about what made me want to blog. I've been blogging for about 8 months now, and for a while, I kind of forgot what I started for - I got off track a bit and wondered if I should even be blogging.

Anyway, it all started one summer's day (oh goodness, here we go!) when I'd finished my exams and had about 9 weeks before I started school again. I was reading through this book that I won in a competition when I was about nine or ten - called '101 Things to Do Before You're Old and Boring' - and one of the things in there was to start a blog. Which seemed cool.
You see, I'd wanted to start up a YouTube vlog for a while, and so did one of my friends, but the only problem was that I'm quite self-conscious. So I didn't really want to show my face to the world (well, I didn't want anyone to recognise me, mainly). Hence why I've only told one of my friends about this blog. And none of my family knows about it. I just think that it'd find it awkward to write things if I knew that my friends were reading it, I don't know, I'm babbling...

And then, two hours and a Blogger profile later, on a complete whim, this blog was born. Starting out with the (somewhat rubbish but quite original) title of 'Five Green Bananas' and, a bit like metamorphosis, transforming into 'A Little Red Notebook'.

And I'm so glad that I did it, as much as I persuade myself sometimes that I'm not...


  1. Good for you! Congrats on eight months! :)
    Just want to say, I've really enjoyed reading your blog so far; it's definitely relatable. :)
