  1. Stay positive. Don't worry about the numbers, if you love what you do the numbers will reflect :) BTW - Love your blog!

  2. Hi Jasmine! I just discovered your blog and started to read this article and you know what? You are not alone feeling like this. Many times, I have deleted my blog and started again because I was never satisfied with the photos because no professional photographer took them. There's just so much pressure because look at these amazing big bloggers making amazing content.. I think you just have to stay true to yourself and eventually everthing will come around! :) Have a nice day and you what? I want to support you so I am subscribing to YOU :)

    1. Awww thank you sooooo much!!! It really is alot of pressure but if we stay focused on knowing our talents and gifts it makes it a lot easier! When it comes to photography my mom takes them hehe and I have to tell her how to do lol but before then I used what I could to make it as creative as I can! Its what you can do with what you got that counts, you got this girl, keep up the great work on your blog too :)

  3. It's easy to get sidetracked when we don't see the numbers. We're fabulous! Can't everyone else see that? ;) But keep on moving forward and the readers will come.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing! I go through many of the same emotions with my blog. I work so hard, and sometimes I go insane wishing for more views and interaction. I'm glad you learned how to get out of the slump.. hopefully your advice works for me too!

  6. After 4 years of blogging, I've mostly learned to let go of the numbers... *mostly*. Just the other day I have a conversation with a friend that HATES pinterest and the "perfection syndrome" that it creates for her.

  7. I needed to read this. It seems my numbers have plummeted and I'm struggling to get them up. I do have fun with my blog, and maybe I just need to take a break from the analytics for a while. I think you're doing a great job!

  9. I feel disappointed of my blog almost every day but I like to think that this is part of the journey and everyone has to start from the bottom, at the same time as you said our blogs are out babies and as a mother you want your kid to be the best!!. You have a beautiful blog jasmine, and I know a lot of people think the same, so don't feel bad!

  10. I learned that you have to have a thick skin not only with blogging but life in general. I have experienced some bumps in the road to success both in blogging and in my career life. I had very high hopes for both but they seem to keep falling short of my expectations! I had to learn that in life I was going to face disappointments but I should not let it stop me from doing my best and to going. So hang in there girl because we are rooting for you to succeed and we have all been there!

  12. Great post & very encouraging (especially to a new blogger like myself). I'm not gonna lie, I was starting to become a bit obsessed with numbers myself & should just put that aside. Six posts into my blog & I still enjoy it - love that feeling when the ideas & words just flow. :)

    Again, thank you for sharing this & look forward to reading more. :)

  13. You know what I reeeaaaallllly enjoyed reading this...just to encourage myself so first I want to say thank you for being brave and speaking on a topic that affects many new bloggers, a lot of us just pretend like these feelings don't exist and try to hide them, but some of our toughest times produce great content. I've gone through similar feelings of feeling like I'm doing everything, being consistent, and just feeling like giving up, or feeling like I'm shouting as loud as I can and no one is listening. Or being a reserved person feeling like maybe its because I don't know lots of people in the blogging or Youtube world so my audience grows a lot slower - and it was getting me down. But after deactivating my social media for a while, I re focused on the fact that I am a bad ass designer and blogger, and slow and steady wins the race, society tells us we need to rush, but good things with a good foundation take time to build, so I hope you find this encouraging. You CAN do it! :)

  15. lately I've been feeling great! but, throwback to some months back, i was so depressed, no comments, views were slow, etc. I talked to my husband and siter about it, of course, they were quite encouraging, but mostly, I spoke to God, and things have really turned around. I still want so much more, but I have peace of mind and there has been a new release of insight and inspiration...i can see it and feel it, and I know its only a matter of time, before things become more visibly on a greater level for me.
