I have tried starting a personal blog before. Multiple times actually. And I find with each one, I just get so overwhelmed and uninspired from all of the ‘blogging tips’ and other successful bloggers. Lately, all I see are posts about growing your blog, making money from blogging, how to blog, how to do this, how to do that and man I get so bogged down in them. I literally can sit there and read 20+ of them and did any actually help me? No, not really. I probably should have spent my time trying to improve my writing or taking photos.
I want this blog to be a REAL blog, full of all of the things I like and find interesting. I’m basically writing it for myself, it’s going to be like the good blogging days of 2010 when everyone shared real posts about themselves and interesting things, not how I made $10,000 from blogging in a month. Does anybody else get really caught up in all the ‘helpful’ posts? And I put quotes around helpful because are they really all that helpful?
Another thing I find hard about blogging is comparing myself and my blog to other successful bloggers. They all had to start somewhere with a basic blog template and meh photos right? I see bloggers like Kotryna Bass and Rebecca from Roses and their blogs and Instagram profiles are amazing. I get pretty caught up trying to be like them but I am realizing that I just need to be myself and share my life how I want.
This is a bit of a long winded round about post but I enjoyed sharing it,
Hope you all had a good weekend.
