    Why blogging is hard

    blogging is hard

    Hey guys! I’ve been blogging for about a year and it’s been a great year. I have learned more than I thought I would learn starting this blog. I know so much about blogging, social media, influencers, and etcetera. But with all this wealth of knowledge, it can be easy to know it but hard to actually do it. And with all the crazy things happening in the blogosphere, it can become quite daunting. At some points I know I was confused as to why am I even doing this. But then I would read about someone who inspires or meet a great group of girls and guys. I know so many people want to start blogs but don’t know if they should or what they have to do, to actually start the dang thing. Well, I’m giving my little bit of why I think blogging is hard.

    First, it takes over your thoughts

    Before blogging my life was all about work, my family, my pup, and food. Oh and friends!  Then once I hit submit on my first blog post I was in it. Every free thought was about oh that could be a great blog post, or how do I create an awesome graphic for my blog and etcetera. I promise you the notes section of your phone will be filled with random thoughts that come to you while you’re at work, walking to the store, eating lunch, or using the bathroom.(we all do it). But its wonderful because I felt like I had my thing, I was no longer just the nice bubbly girl who was obsessed with food and work. I was the girl who was obsessed with food and blogging.

    Second, you feel you’re not good enough

    It may just be me and a million other girls. But I was so happy to start my blog. I was already following a few blogs, but I was never jealous of them of felt I was not good enough. Boy did that change. Next thing I knew I was not publishing content afraid my thoughts and opinions were not as good as the girls I found on Instagram.

    Third, your S.O. may not get it

    My fiance doesn’t really read my blog and that’s fine, he’s not my target audience. But he supports it. He always takes my photos for me and supports me when I tell him, I’m, about to meet a group of girls I met online. He gets it because he’s online too. And if your significant other doesn’t get it, keep doing it, eventually, they will catch on.

    Last but not least, It will be like a second job

    You are going to be working on it at least 5 hours a week. You are going to have to spend money on it if you’re serious about it. But mainly you’re going to love it. Making new friends touching lives and finding something that literally brings you joy is the best thing about blogging. No matter how many times you may fall off, if it keeps coming back to you never give up on your passion.

    Thank you so much for reading on why blogging is hard and totally worth it. Id love to hear anyone else reasons on why they blog or have continued to stick with blogging.

    Rosa Parks x Birthday

    Everyone knows about Rosa Parks. All She did was refuse to give her seat up for a white man. And the rest was history. I found out that some people did not know that shortly after African American began refusing to ride the bus. This sparked the Montgomery bus boycott that lasted a little over a year. Due to the Montgomery bus boycott, the supreme court got rid of segregation on the bus systems. Yay!

    Now today is a special day for me, and no its not because of the super bowl LII. It is because it is my 26th birthday and I share this day with my hero Rosa Parks. Although she was just an ordinary seamstress, she inspires me that one small action can have a ripple effect even years after youve passed.
