1 year of blogging // What I've learnt so far

Follow my blog with Bloglovin 

I've been blogging for a year now. A whole year, and I am so glad that I started doing this. Working full-time means that it can be hard to put my all into it, but I love every minute of it. Some days can be tricky as not every day you'll get much motivation. I spend most of my evenings on my blog as I like to socialise at the weekend and though I may not be working on it, I'm still thinking about what I can do and get inspired for future blog posts. 

Blogging is so enjoyable and so much has happened in the space of a year. I have learnt soo much and thought I would share it with you all...

It takes a lot of work

It can be difficult working full-time plus working on a blog too, all I want to do when coming back from work is to unwind. Being at work looking at a computer and then coming home and doing the same thing can be tiring. It's important to give myself time to breathe.

I've learnt to balance the blogging life and not get too stressed, it may not be fun all the time, but I love it.

Don't compare

It's easy to think 'I can do that' but being different makes your blog unique.  I was a little scared doing all of this because I noticed so many trends people were doing and various ways they write or even do certain things but I think it's important to focus on what you know best rather than what others are doing.

It's dull seeing everyone be the same and it can be refreshing to see diverse things and people. Embrace your uniqueness rather than hiding it.

Write what you love and know about

Reading people's blog posts, you can think that it's a great idea, though it's a good idea for them, not for you. I have had more draft blog posts than published ones, as it doesn't resemble me or fit my blog.

Some brands can take the p*ss

Just because we write blog posts doesn't mean we will write about anything or everything. We want to be able to work both ways rather than giving the brand full credit, and then we get nothing back. When a brand wants to work with you be sure they truly want to work with you because when they say 'you can have 20% off anything', this doesn't mean jack to us. We can get 20% off retail stores when they have a sale without being a blogger so why should we use some small offer. No thank you x

What have you learnt whilst blogging?
