Things I’ve learned from blogging

Hello everyone, before I get started on this post I just want to apologise for not posting for the last couple of weeks. I have been busy and it’s been difficult to find time and motivation to write. But enough of that, today’s post is all about the things I have learnt since I have been blogging.

1. It’s easy to let numbers bother you

I find if I have had a bad month for views and likes it makes me feel as though I shouldn’t bother writing. If my following hasn’t grown I find myself feeling down and as though my blog isn’t good enough. When this happens I don’t want to post or promote my blog and that is exactly NOT what to do, when I’m not posting I get very few to no views at all. It is easy to get caught up in numbers and compare yourself to others and how they are doing but remember we are each on our own individual path, I have to remember I write my blog because I love to write and enjoy post, not because I want the most views and followers.

2. Hard work pays off

It is definitely true that the more time you put into getting your blog out there and connecting with your audience and other bloggers the better results you will see. Like I said above it’s not all about numbers but it is nice to know at least someone is reading what you have say. The best way to get traffic to your blog is definitely connecting with audience members and bloggers on other platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. I would say try and take some time out of each day to post a link to your blog online and discover and interact with other people to follow.

3. Be careful with how much you write

This is a personal preference and what I’ve found from views on my posts. Really long posts can just be too much for some people but of course make sure you get in everything you want to say. You could also add images to break up all the writing if you can’t find a way to break it down.

4. Friendly community

Granted I haven’t spoken to loads of bloggers but everyone I have interacted with has been so kind and helpful. If I’ve ever asked for advice people have been more than happy to help me out, it is so nice to be involved in a nice space on the internet. So don’t be afraid to reach out to anyone. So if you like someone’s content, send them a message or comment, it could become a friendship and if not it is still cool to be kind.

Thank you so much for reading this weeks post, I hope you enjoyed it.

  2. I love this post!! I do encourage you to stay motivated, stay encouraged, like you said… never mind the numbers and never beat yourself up because you see someone else is getting move like or views than you. Remember why you started blogging in the first place and remain humble. Every day won’t ever be the same!

    And I like that you mentioned the part about lengthy posts. Listen, I try to read and comment on others post to show some love and encouragement but the length of the posts is drive me away. My attention span isn’t that long to sit down for 10 to 30 minutes reading one post. I can’t and we have to be mindful of that!

    Nevertheless, this post was well detailed and great! Happy Blogging! & stay encouraged!! 💚💚
