Today I’m going to be writing a blog post with all of my tips for being a blogger. Hopefully this will help some of you, and if you aren’t a blogger, maybe this will give you some words of wisdom for your everyday life.
Stay true to yourself. This is my biggest tip to anyone who’s starting/running a blog. Many people feel the need to do what everyone else is doing in order to be what society deems as successful. If you’re doing this on a blog, many people will see that you’re not acting genuine. It’s so important to embrace who you are as a person. Let this show on your blog, too!
Don’t force anything. If you’re having a hard time brainstorming ideas, let yourself have a break. The worst thing to do is to force a blog post when you’re uninspired. Allow yourself to relax and recharge. Try not to put pressure on yourself to blog everyday, every week, or every month, depending on what your usual goal is. If you’re needing a break, take one.
Find things that make you unique as a blogger. It will help you feel more confident and attract a bigger audience!
Do it because of your passion. Some bloggers get paid or are offered opportunities because of what they do. If you have a blog, make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons. Don’t start one just to make money. If that’s your purpose, your readers and opportunities will be limited. Start/run a blog not for the money, but for how much you enjoy whatever you may be talking about.
Know that things take time. I feel like many people expect things to take off right after they start blogging. The truth is, things take time. Not everything is going to progress overnight, so enjoy the experience. Take each opportunity with a grateful heart, and know that just because you’re not as far ahead as you’d like to be, you can still get there.
Have fun. Simple enough.
I hope these were helpful for you, whether you’re running a blog or not.
Have a great rest of your weekend, and feel free to leave any blog ideas in the comments!
Talk to you soon!
