BLOGGING AND AUTHENTICITY

 

 

The thing I’ve been pondering a lot about lately, is staying true to yourself whilst blogging. Especially when it comes to sharing and promoting.

I’m so proud of my little space. I don’t want to try to *trick* people into coming here, if they want to and are interested, that’s awesome. I don’t want to promote myself on every single platform I can saying ‘hey guys check me out’. (Nothing wrong with this though by the way!) I feel like my blog speaks for itself, as does everyones I’m sure. It doesn’t need to go and try to grab attention.

I always want to stay true to myself no matter how big the following may be. I don’t want to clickbait or use snazzy ways to get more hits by not being authentic.

I hope one day this blog could turn into a way that I earn income. That would be one of my dreams, right there. But I will never do it by trying to pressure people into visiting.

Until then, its my hobby. And I love it.

 

Whats your take on this guys?ย

    I completely agree with you Natalie. I don’t want to change what I post or have my blog shift because I’m trying to gain more traffic or followers. Staying true to yourself through blogging is so important, thank you for sharing such a genuine message!

    Sending light & love your way,
    My Lovelier Days

      I’m so glad you see what I was meaning with this post! Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  • I agree. Whilst I promote on my twitter, I try keep Instagram as a micro blogging platform – it’s only occasionally do I post “go to my blog” on it!

      I joined Instagram a few weeks ago and I can’t believe how much I’m loving it! Such an ace blogging community on there xx

  • Definitely, I do have the occasional promo tweet but I don’t try and do clickbait to trick people in. You need to blog cause you love it at the end of the day, and I still love it 3 years later!

      Woah thats amazing, happy three years! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  • That’s the perfect attitude, always stay true! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Great post, very true and honest! I always steer away from posts or content that you can just tell is clickbait, no thank you. I love promoting my content through Instagram etc but I will mix it up with other posts too!
