051 - Why blogging is a challenge to me

Most of you know that I’m a Spanish speaker and I’ve never had real English classes. So I’ve learn over music, movies and Internet. Back on 2006 I knew just some words and the basics “where’s the bathroom” and “can I have one?” to survive in California.

My goal by getting into the exchange program then was to learn English the tough way, just go there all by myself and live the experience :) Never thought I would find the love of my life there yay!

I’ve managed to learn enough to understand everything people say to me and start conversations, BUT it was really hard to me to not do the “translate everything on my head” process before speaking or writing.

Because I lack all the English grammar, and because sometimes it’s REALLY different than the way we normally do it on Spanish. I was really scared about actually working in California and communicate ALL DAY on English. (I even had nightmares :O )

Then I thought about blogging and here comes my personal challenge -> English speaking people are actually reading this!! I know I’m a baby blogger, but doing this pushes me to not just plan our dream wedding but also to practice and learn. I’m not just writing but also following and reading all the wedding related blogs I found interesting, Yes! I’m learning from all of you BEEs!

I know there's different stories about why you started blogging ( If you have a blog) if so What does blogging means to you? and why you started?
