As a blogger, it is my mission to deliver content to each and every one of you that you will love and enjoy. That standard is something that I think all bloggers should follow. Sure, it’s your blog and you can write about whatever you like, but if you want to keep your readers engaged and coming back for more, you need to keep them in mind when you’re writing your next big post. I know that it shouldn’t, but this puts a lot of pressure on me and may be the reason why my creativity is sometimes stifled. It can be hard to write a blog post knowing that what you’re writing might not be a total hit with your audience, but that’s okay. Blogging is all about the process of trial and error. Sometimes, you just need to throw posts out there and see if they stick. If your post is dead on arrival you should keep at it, but know that you probably should avoid that topic in the future, at least not without some further research.
There are days where I will spend hours upon hours racking my brain and scouring the internet to find topics for posts. In those situations, I almost never end up writing or even starting a blog post. I find that my brain poops out and I feel uninspired, which can be tiresome. Before I close my laptop I like to take a moment to bookmark things I found interesting, or open up the notes app to write down a list of topics I think sound cool. Sleeping on post ideas frequently helps my tired brain, because it gives me an extra day to mull all of the choices over.
I’ve been finding that, even after a year and a half, I still have trouble figuring out what content is good enough to post on my blog and what content you all don’t care to read, nor do I care enough to write about. The good days, however, definitely do outweigh the bad. I will never be able to express to you all how much joy blogging brings me. I get to share little pieces of myself with the world every week and it makes me really smile when I see other bloggers, blogging outlets, and readers appreciate the hard work that I put into every post.
If you’re one of those people who goes through what I go through with my blog, just know that you’re not alone. When things get frustrating and it seems like your blog just isn’t going the direction you want it to, think about all the other bloggers in the world that are probably going through the same problems that you are right now. Things are never ruined and you can always turn them around. I know its easier said than done because trust me, I can fold under pressure big time too sometimes, but it can happen. You’ve just got to keep believing in yourself and trust that everything will work out in your favor someday soon.
So, what problems do you face daily on your blog? Is it the writing aspect that gets you all wacked out? Or is finding the time to sit down where you struggle most? Let me know in the comment section below!
