Having spent about close to 2 months away from my blog and the blogging sphere, some realisations have surfaced for me.
My blogging journey hasn’t been an extremely long one – 3 years give and take – but it has been a very eventful one.
I consider it a great part of my personal growth – it was part of my “opening up” and putting my voice out there. It also allowed me to be creative and to write whatever I felt strongly for.
But the entire process wasn’t all that easy.
There were plenty of mistakes made, time wasted and plenty of (unnecessary) money wasted.
The blogging world can be hard to navigate. As a rookie blogger, who do you take advice from? How do you know what you are doing is right?
You will come to realise alot of information can be contradictory and you’ll also see some of the “dark sides” of blogging. People pitching sub-par products and giving advice that is not only unhelpful, but downright dishonest.
There are great bloggers with great products and advice out there, but sometimes it can be difficult to discern them from the rest of the crowd.
In this 3-part series, I talk about 14 different things that I’ve come to realise about blogging. Yes, most of them aren’t gonna be super positive. But I do feel that some things need to be said.
These are my personal experiences and are not in any way framed as facts.
Presenting Part 1!
