It’s been about three years since I started blogging, and I didn’t look up any do’s or don’ts when I started. And a lot of people find starting a blog to be difficult, but it’s so worth while as it’s your own little corner of the internet where you can do whatever you want. I never would’ve imagined everything that’s happened since I started this blog and I want to give back by giving some friendly advertise for anyone who wants to start a blog of their own.
Ever since I moved back to my mom’s house, I’ve been dealing with a little bit of blogging and YouTube burn out. This is a very common thing that happens in the blogging community but isn’t talked about that much. It’s especially unavoidable to anyone that blogs or posts daily. Every day you’re producing something creative and working very hard from being the author, photographer, and marketing director of everything you produce. And that takes a lot of time and energy, which leads to the unfortunate burn out. So I thought I would share how I deal with those overwhelming moments and how I push through them to keep blogging every day.
A lot of times in the blogging community, you can write a killer post that you spent a lot of time working on only not to see anything come from it. No comments, no traffic, no nothing. It’s frustrating. So I’ve been trying new things since I started blogging and they have really helped to organically grow my blog.
A lot of times when blogging, you sometimes feel like you need to improve your equipment or spend a lot of money to make a blog. But you don’t actually need to do that. I mean, you can if you want to, but you don’t have to. Especially when you follow a lot of blogs that have been turning to more luxury items. I know I feel into that mindset and felt like I was struggling to keep up, because I didn’t have the budget for it. But there are a lot of things you can do instead of following that trend, because all you truly need to blog is yourself, some type of camera whether it’s the one on your phone or something else, and platform.
One thing that I’m often unsure about, or think I don’t understand, is SEO. But I do know it well enough and it is extremely important to blogs. If you want to have people be able to find your blog or website, you need to know how to get your posts to show up in search engines.
