Thoughts on Staying True to Yourself in a Constantly Changing Blogging Community

I’ve been blogging here for almost two years now. And a lot has changed in that time period, both how I approached blogging to the topics I write about to the community surrounding blogging. And it’s tempting to follow the trends of what everyone else is doing. From similar layouts to topics you write about. But staying true to yourself seems like one of the most difficult things to do in the even changing blogging community, especially when it’s really tempting to get caught up in all the ways to drive traffic and get views/followers.
