100 blog posts already! I’m so excited and really impressed. There is so much passion for me to do this and every post I make, I make it how I like it. Of course, I think about my readers, but I try to keep this blog as much me as possible. I would never write something that I have no idea about or do a collab with a brand that I’m not interested. Because that wouldn’t be me! So, thanks to those who have been reading my blog and new readers too! You guys are amazing.
And let’s get to the post! I have been blogging for awhile now and wanted to do something like this. Just wanting to tell what have I learned after writing 100 blog posts.
You don’t need to write every day
Seriously, you don’t need to do it. You must be superman or superwoman if you can make amazing content every day. I’ll post three times a week, but I have posted a couple of months back two times a week, and it was all right. I like bloggers who post 2-4 times a week because I can see that the blog post was written because you want to do it, not because you have to do it. This way you can keep the content fresh, don’t need to write every day and you can even have couple days off and don’t stress so much! I’m not judging people who write every day, but you don’t have to do it. You can still get page views, comments, and traffic.
You will get better every time you make a post
It’s not a surprise that you will get better the more you post. I think that my English has become so much better than before, my photography skills are way improved, and writing has become a lot easier! Practice makes perfect, am I right? Okay, I’m using Grammarly to help me with my small mistakes. But I can see that I’m getting better every day since there aren’t that many mistakes anymore! So, if you think that you are not good enough like I did when I started my first blog, I’m sure that if you keep doing this, you will prove yourself wrong and surprise yourself all the time.
You will find new things about yourself
Like I said just before this sentence, you will surprise yourself all the time. I have become so much braver with photography! I have always loved it, but now differently. There is so much that I can see now, and I want to take photos of everything, different angles, and editing. And that is not the only thing that I have found out about myself! I’m way more creative than I thought that I would be. Blog post ideas just pop out post after post, how amazing is that? Well, sometimes I get a little help from Pinterest, but still. Amazing. There is also way more other things, but those two are something that has surprised me most.
Those are the most important things that I have learned in this journey. There are still so many things to learn, and I can’t wait to find out those! Other small things that I need to point out are that you can take a break if you want to. If you are not inspired, it will show, so don’t force it. Your readers can notice it, and you will notice it. So, just be you and write when you have inspiration 💕 Also! This is something that I see many new bloggers to battle with. You don’t need a camera that costs over 1000€. If your content is good and photos were taken with… iPhone for example! I’ll read it. And if you can buy a camera, you don’t need to get the expensive one. Mine cost me about 400€ and then I have been buying different lenses to it.
So! There you go! What is the most important thing that you have learned through your blogging journey?
