BLOGGING IS WEIRD


Blogging is weird. Like most of us who blog, I never thought I would fall into this hobby. Now that I do partake in blogging, it often times feels like more than just a hobby, but like an obligation. As I briefly mentioned in my last post, I have some goals for this blog. In order to attain those goals I need to go things like read other blogs, form connections with other bloggers, get my statistics up, etc. So taking a full week off from doing all of those things may have set me back a little bit. But really, it's okay. It felt food to not check my blog stats one single time, let alone 4 times every day. So once again, I think it is time to try and find some balance between blogging and the rest of my life.

I agree, I never thought I'd end up blogging as a hobby. It's hard to keep the balance.

True! It's could be tough especially if you just started, and you're new to blogging.

Agreed, blogging is weird! Blog hops and button swaps are very helpful when trying to grow! You should get Passionfruit ads, costs a little money but makes your life a lot easier!

agreed that it is definitely weird. i'm still working on finding a balance of not overthinking it, but also making my blog a success.

Blogging is weird! I took a break over the summer and it was actually really nice. Sometimes it's necessary to stop thinking of your life as a blog or seeing moments in instagram photos.

I agree. I recently took a step back and a deep breath and realized that I started doing this for fun. I'm now focusing more on the things I love and not paying so much attention to the stats or having to take photos at every turn. I'm feeling much better since!
