Hi everyone! How are you? ❤️ Today I’m going to be chatting away about misconceptions to do with blogging/bloggers! Some are beliefs that I once held myself before I started a blog. The following often play a part in why I refrain from talking about my blog to others as I do think I’ll be judged despite none of them being true. Without further ado let’s jump straight into it!
That it’s easy to blog
It isn’t easy to blog because nothing you love is ever simple to keep going and there is always a challenge to get it to the point that looks easy from an outsiders perspective. Even when I’m of a productive mind and have loads of inspiration it still isn’t easy because then I’ve got to put my plans into action by taking photos, planning the post, writing it out and advertising it on various social media platforms.
That it’s all about money
Not all bloggers make money let alone do it for the money! You’ve got to have the drive behind it all to make that side of things work so even those who do make money don’t blog solely for that reason. You have to be passionate about what you’re sharing for it to become a source of income so it’s nothing to be frowned upon (it is also important to remember that you can be doing a fabulous job and not getting paid too!).
That all bloggers do is blog
Everyone has a life away from their blog that they are committed to and work hard to keep on top of. I once had someone commenting the exact same thing over and over thinking I was ignoring them when in reality I wasn’t even on my phone 😂 I love to blog + interact but I’m not going to choose to stare at my screen all of the time. I choose to do it when it makes me happy and above all when I can.
Bloggers share everything
There is a lot that I choose to keep away from my blog because it’s either personal or I just can’t be asked to share it. There is a life behind all the pictures and words on a blog that is not shared and this is a-okay! 😂
That bloggers are in it for themselves
Most bloggers are a part of a community that makes up the entirety of what you get from blogging (friendship! 👭) and so who in their right mind would want to be in it just for themselves? Personally if there weren’t other people to talk to on here I wouldn’t have kept blogging as it’s the community that make blogging what it is!
And there we are! Thank you for reading 😉 Do you know of any more blogging misconceptions? Do you believe they’re true? Let me know, take care and have a lovely day! ❤️
