I enjoy blogging. Since I began my blog, I’ve been able to share my creativity, experience new things, and I’ve even been occasionally noticed by beauty brands. Despite the positive aspects of blogging, there are often secrets that bloggers keep to themselves. Today I’m sharing a few ‘secrets’ that I’ve unearthed as a blogger.
It is not all sunshine and rainbows
Blogging takes a lot of work and effort. Creating new content regularly then promoting said content is time-consuming and it requires a lot of attention to detail. In addition to this, becoming a blogger will not guarantee that you’ll gain instant recognition and sponsorship from brands, which is a common misconception.
We, too, suffer from blogger brain
I constantly think about writing. If I’m not thinking about content for my next post, I’m checking my WordPress dashboard for new content, engaging with blogger groups on social media, or updating my social media feeds. Sometimes this can feel overwhelming and it’s not uncommon for your brain to feel ‘zapped’ from this cycle.
Support is a wonderful thing
We love when a new post is liked or shared, it makes everything we do as bloggers worth it! From my own experience, I read every single comment that is posted on my blog posts and feel grateful for each like I receive. Support from other bloggers or readers is a powerful thing, and it means a lot.
