I feel like blogging for me is a constant ever-changing journey. But along the way, I’ve learned a few little things that I wanted to share with you today.
ITS NOT AS EASY AS YOU THINK
If you’re not a blogger, chances are you think all it takes is typing a few words on a page and hitting publish, but its so much more than that.
Aswell as thinking of new posts and taking pictures to accompany them, you have to stay active on social media, promote, research other blogs, connect with other bloggers, reach out to brands for collaborations etc. The list is endless. Its very deceiving how much work actually goes into blogging I think.
HARD WORK PAYS OFF
Its true, it really does in blogging. Since blogging every other day and being active on social media, I’ve received monthly blog views that I didn’t think would ever be possible for me!
All the promoting, writing and snapping shots really does pay off, and feeling proud of your little corner of the internet is bloody great. Any work you put into your blog, whether thats rearranging the layout, dealing with old links or changing up your bio, all adds up to create your side of the web.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about the room for new bloggers. Is it an over-saturated market? Personally, I don’t think so. I think every single blog is unique in itself, because of the person writing it. No two reviews are the same. No two lifestyle experiences are identical. I would hate for anyone out there who wants to blog but feels disheartened to not do it.
With blogging I feel like I have a set of online friends that are so supportive & I’m also doing something I love! It’s a win-win.
