Happy Monday everyone, welcome to my latest blog post!
I generally don’t have bad Mondays but today I am finding it super hard to get myself together, but sure we are all allowed these kind of days once in a while 😉
I still have a bit of writers block at the minute but I’m trying to par through and keep to my schedule of posting on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays like promised in January 😀 I’ll try not to keep you reading all night 😉
This blog post has been inspired by one of my all time favourite bloggers Erika Fox (Retro Flame), you can find Erika’s version here.
I started blogging on my site and Facebook regularly from July 2016, I had finished my degree and I wanted to fill this new spare time I had with something interesting and worthwhile and I had always wanted a space where I could write whatever came to mind (ironic since I’m having writers block at the minute).
After following some of my favourite bloggers I bite the bullet and started blogging and I am loving it so far; although I have found recently that I have been getting myself down because I am comparing myself too much to other bloggers. I am comparing myself that much that I have almost convinced myself that my blog isn’t very good and you know what it works for personal lives as well – maybe you’ve found yourself in the same position personally?
I know know two blogs are the same and I know I shouldn’t compare myself to others and I generally follow other blogger for inspiration and to see what I could bring to my blog but sometimes its hard not compare myself to them.
Some of the things I get hung up on:
They seem to snap such amazing pictures – sometimes I am too busy living in the moment to remember to snap, which maybe isn’t such a bad thing 😉 but if you read my My 2017 hopes & dreams you’ll see that my aim this year is to get better at this!
I keep asking myself “How do they find the time?” LOL – this gets me the most, I know I work odd shifts and patterns and crazier hours than most people but I just don’t know how other bloggers get the time to post as frequently as they do. I’m just proud of myself that I have stuck to my Monday, Wednesday & Friday blogging 😀
They have more followers… I know this doesn’t always mean their blog is better than mine but sometimes you can’t help but think! I know I have a good following of my blog with over 1,500 people in 8 months but sometimes I just want to be at that 10k mark! Maybe I’m just too impatient but I am so thankful to you all so far that read, like and share my posts.
So from this moment onwards I am going to give myself the kick up the backside I need to stop comparing myself to other bloggers and keep taking the inspiration instead and I am also going to stop comparing myself to others in my personal life!
I don’t want to bore you all with what I get hung up on but I thought I would share some of them with you and I know it happens to everyone because we are only human after all! We all go through these periods in life but we are who we are and we have what we have and we do what we do because its the way we like it so we just have to get on with it and accept ourselves for who and what we are!
I am going to better my blog better from today onwards and I am going to do it by:
- Getting myself a logo… (anyone out there that can help me :D)
- Redesign my blog page
- Grow my Instagram
- Take better more professional pictures
- Incorporate more fashion and Outfits of the day (when I’m not in my uniform lol)
- Post regualrly to Facebook
Thanks everyone for reading again and I hope you all liked it!
